I’ve been on a bit of a “blogcation”…, I didn’t go out of town or lounge in the backyard.  I’ve been busy.  I just haven’t been blogging, reading or writing.  It’s only been a week, I know, but I missed you.  So, let’s catch up…….

First, I hung my prayer flags outside in the garden to allow their positive messages to flow into the world…….





















Then my husband’s youngest son and his wonderful family came to visit from California.




Saturday, we managed to attend a fun street sale in the small town of Aurora, located nearby.




Always interesting stuff to look at……….rockers and deer and porch swings and graniteware…….





Somebody has all their chickens in a row………..








then there was a wood carving, some Japanese glass fishing floats, antlers for the deer above, and more graniteware…







This is the treasure I couldn’t live without

IMG_2886so, it had to come home with me…..the spelling board!  I’ve always wanted one and for $12. I wasn’t leaving without it!

Today, a trip to visit a lovely gallery near by, in the town of Silverton.  Lunaria is a co-operative gallery that features many very talented local artist.  A friend and I went to see the work of Dayna Collins, a Salem artist, who does these great assemblages.



I even entered three pieces of artwork in the art show at the county fair this week and I managed to do a little work in my journal, too.  My, I have been a busy girl.

It has been a fun and busy summer, so far, and I’m lovin’ it.  Thanks for stopping by, it was good to see you!

Love it all! Sorry I missed the field trip. I LOVE your spelling board. Good thing I wasn't with you in Aurora when you found it. I might have had to wrestle you for it. :) Now THAT would be a sight to see!


Halle said... have been busy! Love that spelling board. I've never seen anything like it before. Good for you entering your art in the county fair. I put a note on my calendar for next year to look into doing that myself. They kids want to as well. Fun!
The prayer flags a re lovely hanging in the breeze.

Your prayer flags are showing very nicely. oye! Choices. Chickens in a row and then those glass fishing floats. Lovely assemblages. I've never heard of a spelling board so that is very cool. Good stuff!

Oh my. I stopped by your blog to see what YOU'VE been up to and there were two of my Curious Elements! Thank you for posting photos. I love prayer flags and yours are delightfully beautiful and look so great in your garden. You know I love antique stores and flea markets, so thank you for the many photos of your excursion!
