Porch Light

Vintage and antique homegoods and gifts.

Month: July, 2012


 If there’s one reason we should be thankful for the Portland rain, it’s that it brings about so many blooming flowers in the warmer months.  I can hardly walk down my street without stopping to awe at all of the fresh buds!  So I thought I’d take some of that outside magic inside, by always surrounding myself with flowers.  Here are some of my favorite floral picks that we have in shop now:

An antique, peach colored fan

A decorative tin, adorned with flowers and butterflies

Portland post cards

A black ceramic pot

A beautiful, dusty colored framed print

And a vintage powder tin


Happy 4th!

Independence Day is by far my favorite holiday.  Watermelon, fireworks, sunshine, corn, and a swelling of good ol’ American pride.   I thought I’d share some of my favorite 4th of July photos to get me in the celebratin’ mood!

Look at that type!

Mostly, I’m excited to bike down to the waterfront and hear the inevitable “oohs” and “ahhs” from the firework show.

So Happy 4th of July from Porch Light!  We hope you have a wonderful day!
