A Lovely Sunday~More Dolls to Admire!

Jim and I took the day off and headed out for Oregon City and the the country. We made a stop at one estate sale and then stumbled into The Oregon Antique Mall in Oregon City. It has recently opened by new owners Trish and Scott and they were just delightful. The building has been redone, is light and airy, and the staff was so kind and helpful. They offer free coffee and they have provided a nice little area to just sit and chat with other customers.

We had so much fun and found some treasures of course. While I was wondering around, I found two booths that belong to one of our local doll makers, Christine LeFever. Her dolls are lovely and you might enjoy her blog which I have listed in my blogs that I follow. Here's a few pictures of some of her dolls from her blog pictures.

I also found some sweet little books that she has written. So cute and just perfect for all the things I love.

Oh yes, one more thing...Christine LeFever is also a fan of Tasha Tudor...need I say more?

After our shopping, Jim and I drove out to our friends Pat and Bernie Hintz's farm to buy some apples, walnuts, pears, onions, their delicious apple cider and potatoes. They are just so funny and we had such a nice chat with them.  Stopped at our favorite little cozy restaurant Top O Hill restaurant for a comfort
food dinner.

I'm watching season 2 of Downton  Abbey- the perfect ending of a perfect day. A gorgeous full moon is out tonight too.

Thanks for sharing. Christine's dolls are lovely. I need to spend some time on her blog.
