Tiniest Park in the world

by on May.03, 2012, under real neat lookin, stuff we like


We at Civilized Wildlife have a soft spot for Portland, Oregon. We’ve spent a lot of time in the rose city taking in all that it has to offer and exploring its famous and infamous spots (we’ve got a great tattoo guy up there).

A friend just reminded us of something so small and quaint that’s it’s easy to miss. The above pic is of Mill Ends Park. It sits modestly on a bustling city street providing passerbys with a smidge of whimsy and beauty.

Let us not forget that in many aspects of life: Less is ALWAYS more!

Thanks Dave

A bag piper and a penguin ARE an obvious match. Why didn’t we ever think of this?!
Happy Friday!

So this is exciting!

The beautiful Joan Smalls totally ownes the colorful cover of VOGUE Italia this month.
It’s the first time since 2008 the mag has used a woman of color on their cover!! And it looks awesome.

How do we say “It’s about time” in Italian?!

I wonder what’s behind the double doors…I’m pretty sure the owl up top knows. There’s a reason she got that job up there at the top. Wise owl.
