Another Road Trip

On Friday, the family and I headed over the mountain to the lovely town of Sisters, Oregon to see my husband's parents. We hadn't been over there since December so we really needed to get over for a visit. We couldn't have picked a lovelier weekend. The weather on Friday was a little crummy, but Saturday and Sunday totally made up for it.

While we were over there, my mother-in-law and I made a little trip over to Redmond to check out the "Just Between Us Girls" Spring Sale. I had never been to one of their sales and was curious to see what it was like. The sale was held on a farm out in the middle of the country. Snow covered mountains surrounding the several vendors booths and lovely, lovely blue sky.

I was so happy to see Julie. She was selling with her friend Marci. I also got to see Betty and her mother-in-law too but unfortunately didn't get a picture of them. I first met Betty at Joy's blog party.

I apologize for my not so great pictures. It was hard to get good ones with so many shadows.

My favorite booth had to be one that belonged to one of the organizers of the show, Lisa. I think this was actually her property. Her space was so charming. Lots of pink, lots of roses, right up my alley.

I was very good and only bought a few items. You can see them here. Oops! Sorry about the shadows.

Cute Italian floral wood plaques and metal hanging thingy from Julie, piece of ticking, fabric covered vanity organizer and cute hand towel.

I would highly recommend this show to anyone who likes shabby, garden, vintagy items. I think they have another one coming up this summer. You can check out Julie's blog for details.

The highlight of the weekend had to be spending time with my family. I have mentioned here in the past the fact that I can't get my kids (13 and 15) to pose for a picture together. On this trip however, they decided to go for a walk together and stole my camera to take a few pictures. When they came back and showed me the pictures, I couldn't have been happier. Here are just a few they took.

My daughter has just recently become interested in photography and my FIL was kind enough to give her all his old camera equipment. I told her if she becomes a famous photographer, she can support her old mom and dad. She didn't think that was the best idea.

Can't believe it's Wednesday already. We have had a couple wonderful days of weather, but I think the rain is coming again. Lots to do this week as usual. Painting outside won't be one of those things, but maybe some sewing projects. Have a great rest of the week!

Hi Lisa, I am so proud you stopped by and said hello! ( That's southern for you made my day.)
Thanks for all the sweet comments. I'll be sure and add you as well. You sure do have cute kids...they don't look like they're camera shy at all. I hope you are having a wonderful Easter weekend.
