This is the last night of our vacation.
What a wonderful time my husband and I had last week at the Oregon Coast,
and this week in the high desert of central Oregon!
Tomorrow we head home from our wonderful time of Rest and Relaxation
and look forward to a weekend with a wedding to officiate and a Sunday full of church activities.
The third R, Responsibilities, awaits us,
but the three Rs together in the right measure make life rich, right???
We are staying in a dear friend's vacation home at Eagle Crest,
which is just outside the town of Redmond, Oregon.
Redmond is an antique lovers paradise!
I counted five antique stores in just a couple of blocks.
I thought I'd take you along with me antiquing, since the hubs declined to accompany me.
Above you will see my top favorite find of the day.
I just LOVE old wooden totes and this one is very old, which makes it all the more beautiful to me.
The price was $125.
I didn't bring it home with me, but I did send a photo to my handyman son-in-law
to see if he might be able to make me a knockoff with some reclaimed lumber.
Sounds like he's up for the challenge!
My second biggest temptation was an antique dough bowl, which I've wished for for a long time.
The one above was my favorite.
$125 must have been the magic number, because that is what this dough bowl was priced as well.
So, I just looked at it longingly and left it there.
What a great old cabinet and another dough bowl!
Love these old shelves and more dough bowls!
Prices ranged from $95 on up.
Anything transferware always catches my eye.
I like this red pie safe.
What a beautiful old cabinet!
More transferware, but these particular pieces were newer reproductions.
A beautiful old glass doored cabinet full of treasures.
What a great old Hoosier cabinet!
And on that middle shelf is a pair of milk glass salt and pepper shakers I kind of wish I had bought.
Oh, if I only had a large farmhouse kitchen to bring this cabinet home to!
This blue painted cabinet caught my eye, as well as all of the treasures it contained!
I do believe a stove like this was in our kitchen growing up.
Another lovely wooden cabinet.
Another piece that belongs in a farmhouse kitchen.
And here's a farmhouse style table!
You know I love me some milk glass,
but an 8 inch hobnail pitcher that I have been searching for still eludes me.
Do you see the wooden paddles in the photo above?
The are hinged together at the top, it's an old tortilla press!
I was tempted to get this and add it to my bread board gallery wall.
I really liked the red and wood combination on this cabinet,
and there's that magic number again!
And here's another set of lovely old shelves that I wish I had the money and space for!
Well, I managed to enjoy my antiquing adventure and only spent $18 for a piece of Universal China's Woodvine
to add to my collection and a couple of inexpensive, small, old, blue glass bottles.
(Just call me St. Elizabeth for all of that resisting temptation I did! HaHa!)
I hope you enjoyed going antiquing with me and that you have
a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!
