The beauty of vacation.......

We were gone for 7 days at the Oregon coast....sheer heaven!

To me it was both a vacation and a buying trip for my etsy shop.

Many of these items will be listed, if not already.




And some will remain in my studio forever!



These old cabinet cards captured my heart....there are photos on both sides....did you notice the birds? I did right away...


A beautifully hand-painted victorian purse...


Stunning old wallpaper that I can't wait to use.



An old wallpaper panel found at Vintage Hardware in Astoria....for a song! Can't wait to find a space for this in my studio.

We had a fabulous time.....the hard part was coming back!

You really found great things!! We rarely go to the coast so I would have not idea where to shop!
Obviously you have it scoped out.

So true, isn't it? I'm good for about two days after my return but then I am ready to hit the road again! I guess I am a restless soul. Great finds! I especially loved the shirt collars in their original packaging.
