We are home from vacation--it was a great, relaxing week.  The Oregon Coast is a special place for me.  I am not sure if it is because I was born in Portland--but only lived there until I was 4.  Perhaps it is because we have had many wonderful vacations there--but truly, it recharges and refuels my soul.

This week I must kick butt and I am ready.  I have been selling furniture like crazy, which is great and means I need to get things made for Saturday's Farmer's Market, for Prairie Sister's show in early September, and for my spot at The Antique Barn.  I am also teaching my first Chalk Paint class this week, have family coming to town for my mom's 75th birthday, yadda, yadda, yadda.  Until I get some butt kicking done, thought you mkight enjoy a few photos from our trip.

  3. Great shots.....esp. the one of you and your hubby. Looks like fun, except the bridge.

  4. Great pictures. We love Lincoln City too. We are two hours away, but still don't go there often enough. Go figure. Glad you had a great time! We will be up in your area soon.

  5. Those pictures are so good, especially your cute family!
    Oh, and your roadkill bench is wonderful. I will pin that,
