Baby's Bottom Dollar Sale

My neighbor, Colleen, emailed me about the local Baby’s Bottom Dollar Sale and we went to check it out this morning. It was held at the Tigard Maison Armory and the space was full of new and used baby items – clothing, toys, maternity, accessories, equipment, furniture, etc. You can choose to sell your stuff or just go buy things like we did. I feel like I totally scored on everything I bought – like a Kangaroo Korner Adjustable Fleece Pouch Sling for $10 (original price $62!), a pair of red leather PediPeds for $5 (originally $32!) and a pair of pink baby girl Converse shoes for $3 (originally $20!). If you live in the Portland area it is worth checking out through Sunday, June 14th.


Holy Sh*#! – My Dream House is for Sale!

kaufmann House Richard Neutra

I just found out here that one of my dream houses is going up for auction. And OMG is it gorgeous! I’m talking about the Richard Neutra designed Kaufmann Desert House in Palm Springs, California. I’ve never seen it in person, but after touring the Kaufmann’s Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright this past summer I just know that it will be similarly superb in every way. Even more so, perhaps, because it’s closer to my personal ideal of modernism. How I would love to live in such beautifully open spaces, surrounded by breathtaking views, streaming sunlight, and modern simplicity.

With all my heart I hope it is purchased by a preservation group that will allow visitors to tour this magnificent piece of modern historical architecture. Or at least someone willing to give it the care, admiration and love it deserves.
