Our Monticello Trip


I've been encouraged to go check out Monticello,
in Portland, for some time.
Well last week my sweet fella drove me up.

And I just fell in love with this vendors sweet area.
Loved their work...

and totally drooled over some of their display pieces and ideas.
Like the perfectly shabby metal cart/carriage?
Here is the whole end display with the cart.

And how about this old rusty stove.
I have a round one just this rusty and
cannot wait to get it put into the store.




How about this idea.
Those cool white boxes are just garden boxes on their sides!
How creative is that??
(of course those metal cubbies are great too!!)


Love all the wire and rust they used for displays too.



I loved this clock in the back ground of this booth.
Hard to see it I know.
Here is the base of it....

And the top. Don't ya just love it??

And here we are.
What a fun outing we had.

I did find out at the end of our time at Monticello,
that the booth I loved was none other than our blogging friends
Annie, Fannie, and Abigale
(when you visit their blog. they only
have 1 post at a time up.

Now go see Kathleen at Faded Charm,
for more wonderful white delights.

blessings to all

As I sit here calmly, I notice that purrhaps "she" has had to much caffiene or maybe sugar. "Her" heartbeat sounds like a biplane getting ready to take off. Except of course it never gets off the ground. This continues for several minutes and I think that maybe I'm going to have to do something with those Chrismtas cookies. This rapid heartbeat is keeping me from a very good nap. I look up to see if purrhaps "she's" getting ready to fall off the chair. Or maybe take off like a biplane. And then I notice. The photos. Your photos. Of the Monticello Trip. Oh dear. I see the problem. These photos have a stronger effect than caffiene IV'd straight into a main artery! I'm telling you - what a wonderful trip. But I must go now. I need to unplug the computer before "she" blows a gasket.

Purrs!
