R&R At The Oregon Coast
I was able to take a long weekend off work for some much needed R&R so we headed to the Oregon Coast for a couple of days. My husband indulged me with a few junking stops and even helped me "pick" a big stack of patterns. He was a fast learner, barcode = NO. Yes, I managed to bring home a big pile of work for myself. I have SO many patterns I haven't even listed yet but it's hard to resist when you find the right kind at the right price.
An ivy bowl to add to my little collection, A sewing basket for Etsy, vintage postcards for the lace book project and a sweet assortment of old greeting cards. Those are actually from Nina and Joe's. I wasn't ready for the junking to be over and stopped there when we got home to say hello and see what's new.
I seldom buy single buttons but this Tight Top was so unusual I had to have it. It makes me think it might be some premium from Camel cigarettes, maybe for a smoking jacket?? It is sitting on top of a vintage brown evening bag that will be heading to Etsy.
This needle book is a questionable purchase because the condition is so bad but the subject matter is so good I figure I can find some way to mount it so I can add it to my collection.
I am always on the lookout for old photographs that whisper a caption to me for an altered Altoids tin. Can you hear Baby saying "I carried a watermelon"? That pretty piece of barkcloth in the background is from Nina and Joe's.
A few swizzle sticks for my collection.
All of the postcards have roses except the one one the top. Sorry I didn't spread then out for the photo!
Little girl patterns are not good sellers for me but how could I resist rumba pants.
This is our view from our room. We could watch those waves for hours.
The weather was gorgeous with clear sky and little wind the entire time.
We had dinner at Roadhouse 101. It is the home of Rusty Truck Brewing and the decor is a ton of fun.
They even have lighted tap handles. We would have bought one for The Husband's collection but the owner wasn't there. Dangit, we all lost out on that one!
And so I will end the post with a beautiful coast sunset. We scurried back home on Saturday afternoon with a parking lot of traffic headed the other direction for the start of Spring Break in Oregon. Perfect timing!
I will be making the rounds now to catch up with everybody.
