Last weekend my husband and I took a quick trip up to Portland, Oregon. He travels there a few times a year for business, but it was my first time. The trees were sporting all sorts of beautiful autumn shades of orange, red and yellow and there was a crisp feeling of fall in the air.  On Friday we explored the city together and ended up on the very charming 23rd street. We did our share of beer and tasty treat sampling (Salt & Straw ice cream!) and I wandered into a great home store called Manor Fine Wares. Okay I’ll be honest it may have been more like a stumble after the beer.IMG_0010

The store is filled with all kinds of goodness in the form of furniture, accessories, lighting, tableware, linens and even some unique jewelry.

I loved this cozy fireplace nook with the convex mirror and all the indigo accessories. IMG_0003

Plaid is everywhere this season. IMG_0005 IMG_0008 IMG_0007

This table setting had me thinking about Thanksgiving, which happens to be my favorite holiday. We’re hosting this year and I’ve been thinking about how perfect these plates would be on my table ever since I laid eyes on them.IMG_0002

I happen to know these come from Juliska and you can get all the goods below here.

I can’t believe how fast the holidays are approaching. I’m not ready to deck the halls just yet because I want to savor Thanksgiving first. I’m all for the “Save Thanksgiving” movement. How ’bout you?
