Photo Journal: Port Gamble, Washington


Port Gamble, Washington is a beautiful town located a ferry ride away from Seattle. The architecture is a stunning mix of Victorian buildings and homes made with New England charm. The dahlias were in full bloom when we were there. Above you can see the Walker-Ames house and the St. Paul's Church.



In the Port Gamble Store you'll find an amazing collection of sea shells from around the world as well as other ocean creatures and treasures.

Color Palettes: Lindsay Phillip Butterfield Textiles



Lindsay Phillip Butterfield (1869-1848) was a British pattern designer who worked in the Arts & Crafts style. An avid gardener, he created botanical designs for textiles and wallpaper. In his palettes, he used muted and harmonious color with a mix of subtle and dramatic shifts of value.
