Today I was reconnected with an old friend. Via a dog groomer. Isn't it lovely how those things work?

His name is Sean Igo and since we've last spoken he has become the proprietor of a lovely shop in Portland called Canoe. From their website "the CANOE concept is to offer simple, beautiful, and functional objects that can be used and enjoyed everyday. To us, modern is an approach, not a style. We seek out products with a lasting aesthetic that transcends short-lived trends." And if he is still the Sean I worked with in a past life, it's a well-oiled machine just oozing great taste.

If you're not in the Portland area then check out the website for yourself. Here are a few teasers...'cause I've been there already...

sphere vase, $10.00

plywood wall clock, $70.00

ciao pinocchio, $49.00

egg bird feeders, $135.00

teak trivet, $24.00
