Dawn has been super busy crafting beautimous (yes, I said beautimous) new birds. We got together during Spring Break to shop and laugh and shop some more. We covered a lot of ground one day … we were at Orphaned Decor, Pink, Roost and several other Spokane vintage venues! I picked up some board game boards to use for decorating a den or game room. I also picked up some vintage hat boxes … one of them a Stetson box … several antique frames, some 50s patterns, bunches and bunches of vintage sheet music. Although it’s getting harder to find – it’s always fun to look.
We ended the week at Silver Mountain Resort in Kellogg, ID and drove further up the road to Wallace after getting more than our fair share of fun at the waterpark. I took this photo in Wallace near a shopping area. Apparently they’re big into recycle/repurpose/redragon!

I was downtown last week to check out the vegan bakery Boots on (approximately) Main & Division and was pleasantly surprised. While waiting in line for my vegan chocolate cupcakes for Valentine’s Day I felt like I’d been picked up and plunked down in Portlandia! I love Portlandia … it makes me miss Portland even more though. I turned to the woman behind me and said as much. Her reply? “You are in Portlandia.” She said she was a transplant here due to her husband’s job move.
And since I was right across the street, I popped over to Roost to check out their inventory. Pleasantly surprised was I, when I found a darling little, pink ceramic flower pot, a bird cage top, shabby black bucket, pink bud vase and a couple of nests. We’ll be using lots of nests etc. for Lola’s Girls birds in upcoming shows.
Here’s a quick photo of my treasures. Oh and the candy dish on the left is one I bought there a couple weeks ago and filled with Pottery Barn’s artichokes.
