A few years ago I saw an article in Country Home Magazine about a shop in Portland called Tumbleweed Boutique. It was so interesting that I said if I am ever in Portland I want to visit the store. So my friend Heidi, who lives in Portland, took me this week. It was so fun. I met Kara the owner and seamtress who makes some of the dresses and tops. I purchased a Karaline original top. Kara also has a kids shop next door called Grasshoppers, it was equally darling.
