Amy at Poppy and Ivy!

http://amyhollands.typepad.com
Amy is a doll!
I know, because I met her today! Her store is just as cute. Poppy and Ivy sits on a cute little corner on a hip little street..........NE Alberta in Portland Oregon.
I have been reading Amy's blog for a couple of months and have been meaning to stop in to her shop after one of my classes. Well, today I did. Instead of going home to shower, I showed up all sweaty and smelly. But she has lots of yummy scented candles, so hopefully I didn't stink up the place. Vintage flair mixed with a few new items. The red walls with the shabby white counter sucked me in. I bought a cute wire basket and a couple of candles that she swears by.
She has the most interesting works of art. They have bee's wax over the top. I had never seen this sort of thing. Love them. I want to learn how to do this.
Amy's blog and shop are full of her craftiness. She shares the joys and stresses of owning a little shop and takes you along for the ride. Her blog is a fun read. She's pretty funny. I enjoyed meeting her so much. I felt like we had known each other for a long time.



Look at these cute tags? Darling! She had some others there that she stitched a few buttons on. CUTE! I told her she really needs to sell on Etsy.
I wanted this sconce. I may have to go back and get it.

I'm jealous you got to meet Amy in person! I've been to Poppy and Ivy twice and still haven't met her. I'm sure I met her when she was at Art House, but I'm anxious to meet her in her own little cutest ever shop!

Great post and FAB pictures! :-)
