local market

Last weekend we checked out the Remodelista Local Market event in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. Located at henrybuilt’s SoDo shop, there were about 15-20 vendors there, including both local and regional goods.

Some of the highlights included these awesome chopping blocks made from reclaimed lath from old houses in Seattle. I also fell in love with a super soft throw blanket (from San Francisco based Sefte Living) made from baby alpaca yarn and woven by Andean women artisans, but it was too expensive.

But we did find a few small things, like this linen tea towel from San Francisco company Studio Patro.

These photos were taken fresh out of the packaging, but after a few washes it should soften up.

Of course, anytime I’m photographing something at dog level, this happens. Such a diva.

Local favorite glassybaby was also there, so we picked out this votive for our bathroom. Actually, Kyle picked it out. That man is all about soft lighting. Seriously, he would put every light in the world on a dimmer switch if he could.

I also purchased the new cookbook from 101 Cookbooks blogger Heidi Swanson, who was at the event. I only follow a handful of food/cooking blogs, but I’d come across a review on Smitten Kitchen recently so I knew it was worth a look. And I wasn’t disappointed – the photography is beautiful and the recipes sound amazing. I can’t wait to try it out!

The rest of our weekend consisted of general basking in the sunlight (finally!). This has officially been the coldest spring on record in Seattle and we couldn’t help but get outside and soak it in while we could (because of course today was gray and rainy).

P.S. – Nicole at Making it Lovely featured our mustard jamb on her Honor Roll last week! Yeah, it made my day.

    nicole’s shout out last week is how i found you, and then I spent the next 3 days reading the entire blog, chronologically! And realized i should have found you ages ago, what with all the shout outs from bloggers i read (door16, brick house, AT, etc.).

    i’m in the planning stage for back-to-back bathroom remodels in my 1949 rambler in olympia, so your blog is a huge help! i’ve already got my floorplans set up on Warmly Yours.

    I love Studio Patro, I think they were on Design Story not to long ago. I should’ve bought some stuff while it was marked down but never got around to it. I have a bad habit of doing that. Grellow is the accent color in my house. My love affair with grellow started when I bought a pair of wire patio rocking chairs from CB2. We are in the process of renovating our patio, hopefully I’ll be laying 10×20 gray tiles down this weekend. As always can’t wait to see what you guys do next.
