When we were children, Mother's Day inspired us to ask when children's day would be celebrated. You know the inevitable response: every day is children's day. We did find that to be wholly unsatisfying though now we see the truth of it (mostly). Whether you are a child or a mother or both we hope you have a wonderful weekend with loved ones!
Doing a little Mother's Day cooking? This looks delicious. Thank you Katie.
Speaking of obsessions - we can't seem to get enough rhubarb these days.
We'll be celebrating the day with brunch at Accanto. A charming little local trattoria with fantastic food, it's worth making a reservation if you find yourself in Portland. When the weather is lovely (yes! it happens!) you can even sit outside.
Get ready for lunar energy - you knew it was only a matter of time. This gismo is beautiful, too.
Natasha Khan (of Bat for Lashes) is just so cool and beautiful.
Daughter's soulful cover has been on repeat all week at our design desk.
Yeah, we think so too.
Lovely Dani muses about philosophy and The Good Life this week. Beautiful.

We are in awe of Bea Johnson and the beautiful way in which she has evolved her home to be essentially waste free. She offers gracious tips and advice for those who wish to follow in her footsteps in her new book and on her blog.
There are indeed lots of wonderful reasons to enjoy Portland. Let's add Olo to the list - trip to Portland not required.
Speaking of ways to save trees, PaperKarma makes it easy to eliminate unwanted junk mail. Download the free app, take pictures of the offending mail, and request to be unsubscribed. Done.
We hope we can work out as gracefully as Maia when we are 96. And also before.
This blog is just plain beautiful. Truly.
Okay, we admit it. We are kinda proud of being carbon free for 5 years! We couldn't have done it without Carbonfund.org, who have planted 50 trees to mark the occasion.
Happy weekend everyone!
Looking for fun in Portland this Saturday night? The Pixie Project is holding their annual Furbowl. Not only does it benefit a wonderful cause but there are awesome prizes. The lovely Honey Kennedy has a terrific list for the rest of the week.

Even if you can't make it to Coachella this weekend, you can tune in and share the love.
Our current lunch obsession. Favorite combo: red cabbage, cucumber, pepper, tomato, feta, green olive and balsamic vinaigrette. Dark chocolate for dessert, of course.
Our beloved Palace has the cutest tumblr ever!
Happy weekend everyone!
Oxblood, burgundy, wine, maroon, and cranberry... this luscious fall hue goes by many names. One thing is for certain; it's the go-to color this fall. As summer transitions into fall, do you find yourself craving rich colors? We certainly do here at Alima Pure, and pops of cranberry are what we’ve been craving. So, we put our heads together to come up with a few lust-worthy incarnations of this fall favorite.
