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.
