It's a hot one!

I feel like my week-end started Thursday. My #1 and I decided to hit a couple of thrift stores Thursday morning and low and behold I met Lisa there. It was fun to actually chat a little while with her, she's such a sweetie. She was on the "look-out" for treasures as was I. Hopefully our paths will cross again.

On Friday we hit a few more sales. After that we were going to take our boat out but decided we would wait till Monday. I've never been out on the boat before, so this will be an adventure. Last fall we bought a used boat and did some major work on the interior of it. I hope to still be with you on Monday, as we venture out, Yikes! Hopefully the river will be less crowded on a week-day.

This was also a week-end for traffic jams. We were caught up in two of them, on Friday and one again today and both in 80 to 90 degree weather. Both times the traffic did not move. And both times I didn't think the gas tank was as full as it should have been. That freaks me out a little. If I'm going to be stuck in traffic I want to be stuck with a full tank of gas. Of course my #1 thought we had LOTS of gas! Other than that, we had a lot of fun!

Here are a few treasures I found this week-end.

I did get into more old wood stamps.

The picture below is a picture that I've had quite awhile. It didn't come with a frame and as it's an unusal size, I didn't find a frame right away. Well this week-end I did, and for $2.00, you can't beat that. I just love it, I think it's so pretty.

Hi Debbie!

Thanks for visiting my blog and with all your cute things you have, you would have a blast decorating a vintage travel trailer!

I LOVE your blog! It is filled with wonderful things to look at and it's right down my alley! Love Shabby chic!

My daughter and her family live in McMinnville at the moment but are looking to move up to Bend this summer! I love to visit Oregon in the Fall!

May I add you to my favorites?!

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,
Maryjane
