I had a great time in Seattle & Oregon
I took a trip out to Seattle to pick up my daughters car and drive it to Oregon for her!!
Green grass....I was in heaven!!
I stopped in Centralia Washington to wander their lovely antique shops.
I can't believe I didn't buy a single thing...
Honestly I am very content just looking...
Part of the fun is finding a special treasure...
you know the kind that reaches out to you
I was looking to add to my collection of red and white dish towels
Or for miniature quilts...I made this
blue and white cat quilt several years ago and
embroidered it with silk ribbons. I make it when
I can't find it!!!!
I am always on the look out for red and white
quilts...like this one.
This one I picked up several years ago for a song...It makes me smile
My never ending search for
wonderful textiles....they are my biggest
I also look for
vintage brooches and necklaces, but nothing
caught my eye. I made these little pincushions
and I love to toss them in with my costume jewelry and
embroideries. So sad, I didn't find a thing to add
to this little family group! I think they will be fine :o)
I'm also always on the lookout for beautiful
plates. I found these two in Centralia about 10
years ago. They are a matching pair....I wonder
if there are more lovely ladies that go with them.
No more to be found in Centralia! They must
have saw me coming! :o)
A beautiful mantel display
And a sweet card........
I love these...they would be great on
a Valentine Tree. These were not for
sale.......must keep looking....ha,ha
And a beautiful display...
Sorry the photo is so small I have
yet to figure out all the mechanics of
my new phone!
The best part of my trip was seeing my daughter and walking on green grass!!
That's an Alaskan for you!!
