Good day

Today I drove to Sisters, a little tourist town about 30 miles away. The drive is spectacular...views of the mountains everywhere. These are the Three Sisters (the mountains we have a partial view of from our property) in all their glory:

My little trip was another coffee date. This time with fellow Etsian, Rebekah, who has two shops: Little Byrd, and Little Byrd Vintage. She also has a blog I visit daily.

We talked and talked. Rebekah recently began selling vintage items on Etsy and will be doing her first show by participating in the upcoming Barn House Flea Market in July. We hit a few antique stores in Sisters and she was able to get some great deals on items I'm sure will be appearing in either her shop or at the sale.

She left me with these two sweet gifts: a wool clutch I had hearted from her shop (I just adore the velvet ribbon and buckle) and a lavender sachet (which smells divine).

Thanks for the fun day!

Oh & PS...I love the Sisters. Mine just flew home so it was a nice reminder of the special bond and how it even exists in nature :)

Your day sounded like a lot of fun! That little clutch is so cute!

Hey Harriet said...

What amazing views you have! Here in Australia there a mountains also called the '3 sisters' & now I can't remember if they are in Victoria or N.S.W. I should know this as I did see them many years ago. I'm thinking N.S.W.

That's so cool that you've hooked up with fellow etsian/bloggers in your area. Your coffee date sounds fun & what a lovely gift. Lucky you! If you ever visit Australia we will have coffee dates & lots of shopping trips too! You can even stay at my house :)
