well, i was never really gone. this work "trip" got to be local this time. i had a very busy two weeks preparing for and then working the portland spring home and garden show out at the expo center. if you have never attended this show, try to make it next year. if you are planning any home building or remodels, this is an amazing resource for EVERYTHING home and garden related.
of course i loved this portland ace hotel display in the pendleton woolen mills booth. pendleton made custom blankets for the ace portland and ace new york. i especially love the portland blanket because of the famous portland elk. does this elk have a name? i don't know. when i used to bus it downtown, i would pass by the elk every morning and say hello to portland. and of course the elk was featured in my all time favorite film, my own private idaho.
what are your plans and projects for the spring? i must say i was very inspired by the home and garden show and can't wait to tackle a few home projects.
it's good to be back with my little blog, is still heart you dearly (or elkly?) portland!
