It’s nearing that certain time of the month where I’m more emotional than usual (ahem, ahem…sorry TMI! I know!) and I just really wanted to start this blog post off by saying the past couple of weeks I have been lucky enough to be graced with the presence of so many women that have become so very dear to me.
And with that, may I introduce to you and welcome you to my lovely friend Rebekah’s studio for her vintage home wares shop Little Byrd Vintage in Portland.
Rebekah and I have been following each other on Instagram for a little while now and when I moved to Portland we finally met up over coffee and I promise every single time we meet up time just flies away and we just chitter chatter over the nuances of life for hours. I adore Rebekah, she is the sort of person where you instantly feel comfortable in her presence. I’m not sure if she’ll like this comparison, but she’s one of my friends I think of as warm cups of tea. Pleasant, warm, never rushed, and just lovely. Like “Ahhh hello, let’s sit awhile, let’s chat.”
Everyone should have warm tea friends. I sure hope you have one, or some, or a lot!
So, last week I got to visit Little Byrd Vintage’s home studio and it was all I imagined it would be! Also, Rebekah had set out homemade goodies she baked which I didn’t really get a photo of because I just wanted to get to the “shovel this into my mouth” part.
I snapped a few photos around her home too, but I didn’t want to be too invasive and creepy LOL. Like “GIRL, let me take a picture of ERYTHANG!”
So I mostly snapped photos of her studio which is painted the prettiest shades of grey and neutrals. And I basically could not even hold a conversation as I looked at ALL THE PRETTY THINGS. The little painted scene with twig frames? Just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. And don’t get me started on the pressed flowers and those baskets of yarn. Ahhh. I’m pretty sure I drooled a bit on the floor.
Eeeep and also Rebekah sent me home with a giant flower press!! It took me a lot of effort not to just shoot out of my chair and go “WEEEEEEEEEEeeeee” like Liesl in The Sound of Music when Rolfe kisses her.
Thank you friend for being such a lovely host and for letting me snap photos of your home and work studio! For more about Rebekah and her vintage shop you can follow her over on Instagram @vintagebyrd or check out out her shop Little Byrd Vintage on Etsy!
