Passion Flower Design

My friend Jewel Murphy owns Passion Flower Design. This store is an incredibly interesting, stylish and whimsical mix of flowers, gifts, bedding and found objects. Jewel is a total character. She certainly was born with the gift of buying. It is a special store and Eugenians are lucky to call it their own.

Oh, look. It's the quail feather clad boy.

Swing by on your bike...slow down...and stick your hand out. Insta-hostess gift on the fly.

Or not. You might miss the party.

Celebrate diversity in the tribal corner. Third World is so hot. Everybody is doing it these days.

This table began its career at my friends Courtney and Brady's wedding as the cupcake table...and from here on it will forever be known as the Infamous Cupcake Table...which stands to reason.

The PFD girls make great displays.

I really, really, really want these lacquered turquoise wall units if I ever get my very own all to myself grown up space/office/fort.

I used to bring my daughter Estelle in here when she was two and she would walk around and fill up her stroller with all of this eye candy. We would have to unload it at the door when she wasn't looking. A total Winona.

Jewel has great ivies and ferns and trailing plants...

Not like the one that I had to stare at in the dentist's office this morning. It was so bad that I demanded extra nitrous just to erase the image from my mind. Forever.

I come here when I need a fresh flower hit.

Orchids recharge my battery...

They always have the best handmade wreaths...

The suzani trend that won't die...for good reason.

Hey, add 20 pounds of sterling and stones and this could be sooo Iris Apfel...

Come check out the store. It's a real gem.


  1. I always love taking a ride with you, makes me feel sort of like a "hitch-hiker" - you always take such a scenic route wherever you go and you need those bookcases for your design space...I mean home office.

  2. i so would if i could. can i help you build your space fort?

  3. Such a cool trip, like your way of putting it all...such shops are the best!
    Wish I could come over to Eugene(I love that name, my oldest son is named that too)


  4. Girl,
    You are hilarious!
    I love the ride!

  5. Hi Jen,
    Is there anyway I could find out the name of the purple paint that the beautiful turquoise shelves are on? It's just what I've been looking for.

    Thanks for making space for Eugene's most wonderful store. I love it. Have to stay away because I, always, want EVERYTHING. Jewel is, well, a Jewel.

  7. Aw shucks Jen, can you say more nice things?


Tell me what you really think.
