hello there. my name is erika larson and i am a vintage housewares collector and seller. i live in bend, oregon with my husband, ben, and our black cat named sid. my time is split by curating the wandering balloon etsy shop, blogging, and working for a chiropractor and natural health enthusiast. i love thinking about alternative medicine, macrobiotic cooking, (sub)urban homesteading, interior design, art, and the beat generation. this blog is a means of sharing my love for visual treasures and for inspiration.
