Last weekend I went to Lonesomeville Pottery Company's open garden and sale. The sale is held annually inside the collective's beautiful old farmhouse in Southeast Portland. We were there by 10:45 and the main floor "showroom" was already stuffed with people buying Lonesomeville's unique art pottery and seconds available that day only. I could hardly get inside to look and I didn't get any pics of the pottery as a result (it's worth a look at their website to see the selections.)
Flowerbeds surround the house and grounds, and I love the way they find inexpensive and creative ways to separate them from the lawn.
