Today we went to one of our favorite coffee shop’s for lunch. It is located in the town of Brownsville, Or. I was pleased to discover a charming little store next door, that has recently opened. The proprietor, Dana, gave me permission to take photos and of course I was thrilled.
Not 2 Shabbee is my kind of place.. A little mixture of this and that, with a lot of vintage charm and beautiful handmade items. Come along with me on this tour. It will only take a few minutes.
And just one more..
As you can see, Dana has a flair for decorating. It is so well put together. I sure hope you enjoyed the brief visit. I look forward to going back, when we are in the area. Thank you, Dana, for allowing me to browse with my camera. I wish you the best!
While on the road to do some exploring over the weekend, we came across a fence that jumped out and grabbed my attention. We had to stop and backup for these.
I had to try to doctor this up with texture to make it somewhat appealing..
Trash or treasure?
The quaint small town of Brownsville had a community yard sale on Saturday. I am sure I have shared this same link previously. Twenty dollars doesn’t go far these days, but we managed to pick up a few vintage items for under that amount and my conscience did not nag at me for spending too much. While on our way home we noticed a sign for another sale, and we were very curious, so we decided to check it out. The property was a combination of a few homes with lovely landscaped yards, flowers and the kinds of rustic yard art that appeals to me.
Besides meeting and talking to some creative and warmhearted individuals, I was inspired in many ways. I always enjoy seeing how old wood can be used to create wall and yard art. There was a combination of furniture, home decor and jewelry too.
These are the items I came home with..
My first texture for 2015.
