|This book on Scottish clans and tartans is amazing, there are even some little fabric samples in it.|
|A gorgeous hooked pillow that says "Rock of Ages" with a cross and some flowers. Some great vintage shoes from "Snap-Snap".|
|A vintage RED celluloid neckties box with a green silk interior that looks new, two gorgeous floral books.|
|I was happier than happy to scoop up all of these vintage velvet trims and ribbons.....perfect for Halloween crafting, right?|
|I love old labels, especially when they look like this! How pretty would these look in a bowl with some pinecones in the Fall?|
|A pretty, pretty wastebasket.|
|A wicker covered bottle.....love!|
|Two fantastic old hat boxes (I'll be keeping these). They make for great storage in my studio while looking pretty. One was $5, one was $7. And my sis got one also! We were happy!|

|This is on my mind lately.......Balance. The importance of priorities and how they affect us and our everyday moods.|
I find that this summer has been challenging in many ways. I have an online business that I love to nurture, but to do so every day can take away from my family (I know you can relate!)
So I'm in the process of forgiving myself for those things that I haven't focused on that I should be. It's crucial to do this! After all, none of us is perfect.
We leave for our annual beach vacation later today....it's much needed in many ways. I'm taking some great reads, a big puzzle, and not much else.
After all, vacation is a time to unwind, right?
I do hope to hear from you all as to your best ways to unwind and relax.....it seems to get harder and harder to do.
Please remember to take some time for yourself!!!

|HomeGoods chicken wire cubbies....love them!|
|My huge wallpapered cabinet panel finally got hung up, whew!|
|Pretty new doll, found the umbrella in a separate store but think they belong together.....after all it does rain quite a bit in Oregon!|
|I took the doors off several of my upper cabinets for display and so I could easily find what I need.|
|My favorite dress form, an ebay find. The angel wings were found at St. Vinnies.........|
|A bookmark I made.|
|Another HomeGoods find. They usually have fabulous storage bins.|

|Our weather could not have been better. The sun was shining the entire time! With snow on the ground it was an unbelievable combination......and the utter quiet is hard to explain.|
|One of the HUGE fireplaces in the lobby area. You could claim a chair and wait for the waiter/waitress to come and take your order....heaven!|
|This is a view towards the dining room. The lobby was a great size, not too big and not too small....just right.|
|My dd LOVED the snow.....so much of it still. With the lodge in the background I love this shot.|
We had an unbelievable time and can't wait to go back. The boat tours to Wizard Island don't start until the end of June so maybe next year we can make that happen. As long as we don't wait too long to make reservations.
I highly recommend this gorgeous work of nature.
