Have you seen the Portlandia episode Put A Bird On It? Well, I am thinking that they need to do an updated version with birch trees - they could keep a few birds too. Since posting about the birch wallpaper that I am kind of in love with and since slightly obsessed over, I feel like I have been seeing birch motifs everywhere. I can't say that I mind though in fact I have a drawing of birch trees that a friend gave me (by request) that I really need to get framed, it is just so lovely. I love the towels by Fine Little Day and those straws need to come to my house.
PS, if you are wondering, I happen to think that Portlandia is pretty accurate in its portrayal of this little city here in the northwest, maybe a bit exaggerated but not by much depending on what crowds you run with. I honestly don't watch the show that regularly because I feel like I live it every time I leave my house, and maybe I can see my-portlander-self in it a teeny-tiny bit too.
