Saturday after the Camas Vintage Street Faire Mike, the girls and I headed to the beach property. We have not been there sense July 4. And man could you tell. The grass was tall. The spiders and mice were hard at work. Sunday morning the sunshine came out to greet us.
I look in wonder at all the work that goes into a web. Must be equivalent to spring cleaning???
My favorite rusty metal bed frame....
I am a little under the weather today, however I saw a recipe for Buttermilk Pie and had to try it.
If its good I will post the recipe....
For some reason I do not even own a pie plate.....42 and this is only my second homemade pie...
So I improvised.
Who said pies have to be round?
Hope you all have a fantastic week.
And here's to all you bloggers who take your own pics instead of borrowing...
Thought I would share my beautiful whites with you.
This chair I received in a trade from my friend Debbie.
It is down wrapped and the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in.
She made this wonderful slipcover for it which makes it even more special.
I have added some down pillows to make it oh so soft!!!
Ok, so you all know sewing isn't my cup of tea. It's not that I don't know how. I am a former quilter, its just I cant find the time. With soap & lotion making, working full time, being a mom of three girls and my junkin fun there is just no time.....However, I had this problem with a pillow cover that just wouldn't stay closed. The pillow kept falling out driving my little mind crazy...
Sew I Sewed two little buttons with ties and ta da.....Problem solved.
Saturday night Christopher caught the biggest Chinook Salmon I have ever seen.
It weighted 45lbs. I have never seen one up close.
Boy are they ugly and some serious sharp teeth.
This fish took Mike over an hour to cut it up and two batches of brine to soak it.
It turned out sooo good!!!
Be sure to come by Saturday and say "Hi" at the Camas Vintage Street Fair.
Mike and I are packing up the trailer and taking the prims to town....

I have survived our Kindred Roses Flea Market....Whew...
Just wanted to give some of my blog readers the opportunity to learn the art of Soap Making.
I am holding a soap making class this Thursday night at 5:30pm at my home in Camas, WA and have room for a couple more students. The cost is $40.00 and you leave with some wonderful soap and the ability to make your own.
Wow, what a week. Here is how my week went. Work, work on furniture, price items, try and sleep, get up do it again, get up do it again. Then Thursday, run several errands, attend a mtg. then meet Christa and Shelby at expo to drop off our goods, go home make another two trips to Portland. Are we done yet????
Friday, get up at 5:30 get to Expo at 7:30am, work all day....etc etc. Then comes Monday, back to work.
OK, you get the idea.
Why do we put ourselves to the test like this doing what we love.......JUNKIN IN STYLE
Here are some pictures of our booth at Expo
Luckily we were surrounded by wonderful friends.
Marci, Lesa, Isabel, Joy, Diane, Erin and Shannon.
For those who do not know her, this is my daughter Sarah. She will be 20 in December. (That's her with the long brown hair). She went over sized sturgeon fishing with some of her Friends from work on Bobby D.'s Boat in the Columbia River. She is not your average girl. Give her camping and fishing trips and she is in heaven.
She also works at a Sportsman Store where she fits right in. Here is the Sturgeon she hooked. It took all four people on the boat to pull it in.
Oh, how I wish she would have been able to keep it!!! YUM! BTW, Mike and I found out we are going to be Grandparents!!! Sarah and her fiance Christopher are expecting their first child sometime early January. New baby for the new year. I am tickled pink!!!! Did anyone say vintage baby furniture???? Have a great day Julie
