What makes you feel peaceful?

Many things make me feel peaceful. These are some
visuals that make me peaceful. This is Mt. Hood.

Mt. Hood is about an hour drive out of Portland, OR.
These pictures were taken from Washington. She is
my second favorite mountain.

This is my Munchkin...almost as wide as long but she
makes me relax and smile most of the time.

And tonight's sunset. From our front porch.

The sun going down......

After a beautiful, sunny, day

And rising up in some other part of the world to start
someone elses day.
What makes you feel peaceful???

Did you make it to the flea???

We had a super time at A Vintage Gathering Flea Market
this weekend.

The Mascot at Beyond The Garden Gate is looking on
(as always).

She always shows up for our flea market.


Oh, and it looks like Rin Tin Tin came by, too.

Thank you to all of our friends who came and shopped.

We had a great 2 day sale and are all exhausted but will
be ready to go again on July 31st. If you didn't make it
this weekend we hope to see you in July.

I'm a Winner !! Twice!!

Back in March I won a blog giveaway from
Sarah at My So Called Junky Life. I was about
to leave on a trip so she waited a little while to
send it my way. Well, didn't come. After
emailing back and forth (she had sent it, I hadn't gotten it,
she would send another, I said no because I felt bad
that it was lost), the matter kind of left my mind.
(Lot's of things have a way of doing that) Then I
get a "Second Notice" from the USPS that I have a
parcel to pick up. It is now June, Sarah sent my Egg in
March, go figure. It was so worth the wait. Look at
that beautiful Egg she made!!!! The sweet little trees,
and bunny and all the extra flowers added on top
and bottom. You should visit her blog if you haven't
(I seem to have trouble with linking to another blog
so she is also on my side bar.)
Thank you, Sarah, for your patience and your giveaway!

Then the other day I noticed that my favorite
magazine in the world had announced the winners
of its giveaway, so I clicked and my mouth dropped
open....I was one of the winners of an autographed
copy of this years magazine and their new issue
in 2011. So after being twice blessed with winning
I am thinking about another giveaway of my own.
However, I have a 2 day Flea Market for A Vintage
Gathering coming up next week which has me a little
busy (read that "crazed"). So, it may be a 4th of July

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there and have
a sweet day!

Today must be tomorrow

Because the sun came out. You may have heard from
many of us in the PNW that we are setting records for the
amount of rainfall recorded.

So I went out in my yard and pulled weeds. And then

when I got tired of that I decided to trim my chives.

And then in celebration of the gorgeous
sun being out I picked wildflowers and put
them with the chives and felt like spring
(yes, I said "spring") had finally come our
Until next time,

A Post with no pictures

I don't usually post about disaster. But I feel I must
put something out there about the Gulf Coast and oil.
The reason for no pictures is that I have seen enough and
my memory is full to the've seen the pictures, too.

I grew up on the Gulf Coast. If you have never been there
try to imagine sand that is the color of sugar. My grandmother
visited us once and took home a container of sand to show
how pure white the sand is. The water is blue and green and
warm. When I need to relax I picture myself on a blow up
raft floating in the gulf with the gentle waves rocking me
while the sun warms me.

The right or wrong of all of this is up to you to decide. I just
know that a part of our beautiful country is being devastated.
The people who make their living due to the Gulf will be hurt
for years to come. My favorite seafood is peel and eat shrimp.
It could be gone. The white sand could turn to a slick mass of yuk.
The beautiful water could turn to a murky mess.

People, families, businesses, beaches, eco systems, could all
be devastated. Hurricane season is predicted to be worse
than average. More devastation.

No matter how you feel about what is happening, please, please,
put these people and wildlife in your thoughts and prayers. So
much depends on this area being saved. I just hope that it is
within someones power to do so.
