Lots of snow and stormy conditions, not typical for this time of year in the coastal range. There were also lots of cars in ditches too, so I'm glad we arrived at our destination safely. When we got to Cannon Beach we parked the car and decided to walk around the town a bit. Not many shops were open yet, but we did manage to find this wonderful shop. Sesame & Lilies. They have been written up in Country Living or Country Home, I forget which one. But they had all kinds of neat things to look at. Most things were way too expensive for my thrift store budget, but it was still fun to look. I loved this shell display on the wire rack.
Cool old bottle display on a neat crusty cabinet.
Pretty pink display
Very cool chippy antique plate rack
And, the store's cute mascotAfter we walked around a bit, we decided to grab a bite of lunch at our favorite beach restaurant, Mo's. They are famous for their clam chowder. I had my usual bowl of clam chowder, salad with shrimp and garlic cheese bread. Wish I got a picture of it, but it was gone before I could get my camera out. After lunch I had a hard time convincing anyone to walk on the beach with me. We decided to drive south to see what we could see and found a place to walk down to the beach for a bit. Here is my cute hubby, all bundled up.

After playing on the beach for a while we decided to take a different route home and traveled south stopping at little beach towns and of course a few antique shops and thrift stores along the way. I didn't find much to bring home. Some glass knobs, a basket, vintage sewing stuff and this.
This sweet vintage nightgown was just being hung up at a thrift store when I saw it. I love the ruffley detail. I paid a whopping $2.00 for it and it even fits me. Here is Manni modeling it with her collection of pearl necklaces.Even with the crummy weather, we all had a good time at the beach. We definitely need to go back on a sunnier day. Gotta run now, hop on my pink cruiser to go to my lunch lady job. Have a fun Wednesday!
