I would say my most rare dress is my patchwork calico hooded Gunne Sax. These hooded Gunne Sax are the rarest. It’s very funny because I’ve had this same hooded dress twice! The first time I found it I was in a local thrift store and it was a size 5. I ended up selling it because it was just too tight for me and I remembered how much I regretted it and then Alas! I found the same dress again online in my size! I suppose it was meant to be. I will keep collecting them, wearing them, taking photos in them. I always hope there will be a Gunne Sax Craze because these dresses and the stories behind them are just magical. 🙂 Jess
We’ve been all over the place lately looking for treasures! Here’s a few pics for inspiration. Vintage Shopping; Visit Eugene, and the Oregon Coast. xo

Here’s the loot I bought, old sterling powder box with mirror, Ghurka address book in the box and vintage earrings sterling with malachite. 🙂
I almost forgot about this story until I realized I was saving some of these magnificent watercolors to mail to friends for Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone!!
Per FB “The 80 yr old watercolor artist from Oregon who’s work mysteriously wound up at Goodwill. # Goodwillfinds. I had to photograph as many as I could because they’re amazing! $4.99-$15.99 (poster size). ” FB September 11, 2018
*After making a post on my FB wall I later found out that Jean Fredrickson past away here in Oregon, she was in her 90’s. Jean was an interior decorator in Pacific Grove California. She spent many years painting while living in a magnificent Victorian perched high on a hill a stone’s throw from the beach. She traveled the world with her husband who also loved to paint, but with oils. I wish I could have met Jean, her artwork speaks volumes! Some of her work is from Ireland, I wonder if we went to the same places me and Jean…
Thank you, Jean, for your lovely work!! I met your beautiful daughter and I’m sharing your story with my friends as well as displaying your paintings! xo
