Happy Earth Day

Remember these?

It’s been awhile, so I thought I’d repot my tea tins in honor of Earth Day. I only did 3 this year — chives, mint, and a flower for color. I’m hoping to put them outside on the new patio once it gets painted. (she says, holding her breath in hopes she didn’t just jinx it!) 

In reviewing my own tutorial just now, I realized I skipped the plastic liner step. Oops. We’ll see how it goes. Guess I better go find some cute plates to put under those, eh? 




It was so cold outside today, I potted indoors on the kitchen table. Shhh… don’t tell.

Did you do something special today in honor of Earth Day? 

New Liberty Of London Pillows



New Liberty of London Pillows! These new buckwheat hull and lavender pillows are now available at Mireio. Presently, I only have one of each print. So, shop early. Wouldn’t Mom love one for Mother’s Day? 

Remember, Mireio always gift wraps for free! So every package travels pretty! 


New Liberty On the Way

Liberty of London Fabric


This print is called “Juno’s Garden” and it will be here soon! I just placed an order today for new Liberty of London fabrics: several prints that will be new to Mireio.  I’m so excited to about these gorgeous Liberty prints. The fabric is lovely tana lawn: it’s s so pretty and perfect for Travel Pretty buckwheat hull pillows.

I’ll keep you posted. Now, don’t mind me… I’m going to go obsessively check my mailbox. 



So Pretty in the Window


Just because flowers from IZ. Found at the Astoria Co-op  So pretty in the window. #100HappyDays



downtownsunnydayI know I promised a mini-shop update (of pretty pretty vintage!) yesterday, but we received a call–completely out of the blue–from a friend of IZ’s we hadn’t seen in 13 years! He was passing through town on a trip with his 13 year old son. So, of course we stopped what we were doing and played tour guide! 

As you can see, it was the perfect day to do it! The weather was glorious! We had an amazing lunch at the Urban cafe (sorry, no photos) and an afternoon coffee at Street 14 .


We spent the afternoon walking around town, catching up. While IZ and his friend stayed busy summing up what they’d been doing for the past decade, I spent the day with a FABULOUS 13 year old. We clicked and had so much fun, I wanted to keep him at the end of the day!

All this playing hooky means I didn’t exactly work on the shop update. Totally worth it. And I think these cute vintage items are worth the wait too! 



These will be in the store shortly!  NOW
