bella flora

beautiful work
      We were walking down NE Fremont Street in Portland and discovered the wee studio Bella Flora. Elaine is a florist and crafter who sculpts art of nature - pussy willow baskets, fairy furniture made of moss. I love the beautiful mess of her work table. She was all outside air and apple cheeks and clearly content in her domain.

Just caught up on your last four posts. Thanks for bits of beauty to brighten my day.

Looks like you're having way more fun than you are telling us about.

Fairy furniture made of moss? Does it get any more magical than that? What a delightful little shop!

Did you get anything from the shop?

I didn't get anything! And those pussy willow baskets were pretty adorable. I guess it was one of those time when the memory of pretty things was just as good as the owning of them. :)

I love when I stumble upon a beautiful blog....especially when they visit sweet little shops in my neighborhood! I love the photo of Elaine's work table. I will visit again soon!

Hello, Mrs. French! Thank you and welcome here! I did a fair amount of tromping around your neighbourhood ... maybe I walked passed your house, who knows? :) Portland is such a pretty city and it was a perfect winter escape for us. I'm glad you popped in to say "hi". Come by anytime!
