Portland Finds....

Hey Chickies!

As promised..... the pictures of the goodies we found on our recent trip to Portland.  Gosh I love that place.  We had such a good time and the shopping is super.

I really shouldn't buy a single thing.  I have enough to fill two houses and am ready to sell off some of the overflow, but when one is a treasure hunter, it's really hard to give it up...  I just can't!

Love, love, love vintage seam binding.  I have about 47 gazillion yards of the stuff.  I've had a "thing" for ribbon for a long, long time.  I could put bows on everything I own for the rest of my days and still wouldn't use it all up.  That's just how I roll....  Everything's cuter with ribbon, right?

Loved that little loom.  It looks like it might be painful to use, but I'm going to give it a whirl one of these days.

A cute little biscuit jar for my kitchen re-do.  I've been collecting things for a couple of years now.  I'll be happy to finally get moving onto that project.

Cute drawer........has dividers.  No clue what I'm going to do with it. 

Any ideas clever girlies??

Those little apples?  A whole bag of them at the Goodwill for 4.99.  What a buy!

They say that number 8 is the number of money.  I need some of that, for sure!

We've been working on the master bathroom.  The first room in the Spring Cleaning lineup.  It is going to be SO darn cute.  I'm excited to show it to you.  It's going to be a few weeks from now, however.  We're leaving in the morning for Hawaii.   :-)


Some good eats and shopping are in my future.

Better go pack!




  1. Spencer have a wonderful time in Hawaii-
    that was one of the favorite trips of my life. So close to God's hand in everything there-so beautiful.

  2. Have fun in Hawaii!!! Looks like you did find good stuff in Portland. It is a wonderful place to shop. I love those those sectioned drawers made into a shelf.

  3. Some pretty finds in there. The plate with the purple flowers looks very pretty!

  4. Absolutely Beautiful!

  5. OH. MY. GOSH! See that all-white Madonna (or Jesus)? I have that very same one, given to me for Christmas one year by my mother, who had kept it when my grandma went into a care home; it was my grandmother's! I'm in Slovakia at the moment or I would send you a photo of mine from England. How cool is that?

  6. UGH! I was not signed in and the blog just ate my post. I'll try again.

    We are in Slovakia at the moment or I would send you a photo from our house in England. I grew up in Sandy, OR, and used to work in the PR department in Goodwill. What a small world, no?

  7. I stumbled upon your blog and am having fun reading backwards.

    I had to laugh when you said you shouldn't buy more stuff. I have more stuff than I know what to do with, but I keep buying. I am trying to be creative and use up what I have.

    I'll be back.


Sweet and dear little Chickies....thank you so much for your comments. I read each and every one. I always try to make a return visit........sometimes I fail miserably... but you're alllll soooo special to me!

Many, many hugs!
