Summer Happenings

Thought it was about time I jumped back on here. Been so busy enjoying summer. I have lots to share, but here are the highlights.

At the end of June, my son went on a school history trip to Europe. While he was gone, my husband and I decided to take a little trip of our own. Since our daughter decided to stay in Eugene for the summer, we thought this would be the perfect time to revisit a small part of my husband’s youth and traveled to Boston and York, Maine.

We had a great time staying at the Omni Parker House Hotel, walking the Freedom Trail, visiting the Boston Commons and eating at a lovely little Irish Restaurant.


York was the last place my husband lived before his family moved to Oregon. We stayed three days at a cozy little cottage in York Beach. Spent our time there site seeing, visiting museums, some antique shops and eating lobster.





We then ventured further North a bit, visiting Kennebunkport and stayed our last night in Old Orchard Beach at the Ocean House Hotel.


We didn’t have a reservation, just took a chance and was so pleased with this old hotel. No frills, but great beach access. This was the view from our window.


This charming place had not one, but two screened porches and all kinds of cool places to lounge around.


Loved this spot. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the gorgeous artwork. Okay, here is just a sampling.



These were hand painted tapestries. So wish I could have brought one or all of them home.

We ended our trip in Salem, MA. Took a trolley tour and visited a witch museum.


Our son came home from Europe the day after we did and had some great stories to share. He visited Rome, Florence, Normandy, Paris, Versaille and London.


Before our trip, we headed over to Central Oregon to celebrate my in-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was a lovely party.

This summer, I also celebrated with friends, our 30th High School Class Reunion. This was so much fun seeing people I haven’t seen in a really long time.




I didn’t get as many pictures as I hoped, but we sure had a great time. I even got to go to the Bohemia Mining Days Parade which brought back so many fond memories.

On our way back from the reunion, we stopped in Eugene to pick up our girl who had some time to come home for a visit. She brought with her these two guys who are visiting from England.


I just fell in love with Stefan and Chase. They were so charming and clever and I could just listen to them talk all day long. Those English accents are awesome!

And finally, after wanting one for several years now, we finally got a vintage camper trailer.


It’s such a nice size and super vintage 1973, but I think I can work with it. Unfortunately I won’t be able to glam it up, but will be going with a more rustic cabin theme inside. It will after all, be used by my husband for hunting and I know he is not up for a shabby chic makeover.

So, now we are caught up. I really need to get busy working my booths. They have been a bit neglected, but I have found some great things so far this summer. Next post will be booth updates. TTFN!

What a delightful summer you have had and I loved hearing all about it. That camper will be fun to do in any style and I have seen some great western/cabin ideas on Pinterest.

Lisa, wish I had known you were out this way! I don't spend a lot of time in Maine as we have a lakehouse in NH, but I spend a lot of time in Boston (my daughter lives there) and I was just in Salem, MA 4 days ago!! So happy you enjoyed your stay here in New England! Now, if I could just get out to the PNW :-)
