Featuring A Local Artist’s Work

Posted on Leave a comment

Creating art from her cabin in Bend, Oregon, Katie Daisy has established herself as a whimsical wildflower artist who strives to share simple joys and the beauty of nature with others. You will find her work on several items throughout our shop, including greeting cards & boxed notes, specially wrapped soaps in “Willow” & “Morning Sun” scents, as well as rolls of garden-inspired wrapping paper.

If you’d like to help a good cause, check out the McMinnville High School Marching Band’s Silent Auction. At local businesses along 3rd street and here at Incahoots, you’ll find a bright yellow sign in the window and a special item that’s being auctioned to help the band raise much needed funds.

On Wednesday morning, Janet & I took a walk down 3rd to check out the items up for bid. Here’s what you’ll find.

The Vortex: Turntable – current bid $147

Third Street Books: Books and book bag – current bid $25

McMinnville Antiques Mall: Rag Quilt Kit and Bilingual Talk Tablet – current bid $10

You’ll still find a great selection of titles in our summer Book Clearance Sale. I haven’t counted lately, but I’m reasonably certain that there are still hundreds of titles to choose from and I’m absolutely positive they are all 50% off their regular prices.

New Tea Towels

Posted on Leave a comment

What’s not to love about sack cloth tea towels? New in the shop are 8 different designs of these useful and decorative gifts from 2 different companies. And, as a bonus – they are not only soft and pretty, but also educational! From map motifs to helpful drawings of edible plants, these make great gifts for any occasion. Also, Janet points out they can be used to wrap up a bundle of garden produce (or a favorite tin of tea) with a ribbon and voila! Pinterest worthy presentation! ~Andrea

Fairies In The Flowers

Posted on Leave a comment

A fairy garden can be created in almost any kind of container from a tiny little garden in a teacup to a woodland scene in a wheelbarrow. And what most fairy gardens have in common is a variety of plants potted into a container, a fairy figure or two to set the scene and maybe a few other miniature accents.

Dianne doesn’t usually work with potting soil and plants, but she has certainly gotten into the spirit by combining fairy figures into her flower arrangements. Here are a couple of her most recent creations.
