Scott and I are back in Philadelphia, after more than a week out on the west coast. It was a glorious trip, full of good food, delightful day trips, lots of rest and plenty of time with my parents. While I work on unpacking, doing laundry and sorting through the mail, here are a few pictures to keep you busy.

Three pictures of the display in the window of the Pearl District Anthropologie in Portland. It made me cringe a little, to see perfectly good jars spoiled in this way. But I couldn’t help be charmed by them nonetheless.

Another shop in downtown Portland that was using jars in their window display. Happily, these weren’t painted so they can be used again.

  1. I love this! Beautiful collection of photos–inspiring me to go out and either buy some jarred delicacies or make them myself 🙂
