Fun Over the Weekend

Wade Creek House is a favorite destination not too far from home. We often take the pretty drive out to Estacada OR about every season to see what the little shop has to offer. They were having an outdoor Vintage show, so we wanted to see what it was like.

Look who was driving this vintage truck! CLUCK CLUCK CLUCK! Jimmy tried to hop a ride.

Wade Creek hads a cute chicken coop and a little garden. I didn't know they had bees! Boy, they were humming away. It's always good to see an active hive!

Fun booths with fun items. It wasn't a huge sale, but it offered a nice variety of goodies with lots to look at and enjoy.

Here's a look at the outside booths. It was a bit overcast, so it wasn't too hot. I really enjoyed the show. Jim found a great Aurora chair for $13. He was actually looking for another one.

Sunday afternoon, we headed up the Columbia River Gorge to the small town of Bingen. It's on the Washington side. We found a great antique mall. Jim is doing a nautical theme for his October show and was delighted to find this anchor.

We love to go to museums and were thrilled to find this little museum in Bingen. It had been a Presbyterian church at one time. The volunteer said his father had helped to build the building.

My favorite display was the country store. Old Jimmy loves to ring the register. The display had two of them!

Loved the Heinz string holder...isn't it fun!

These are old PO boxes from a former post office.

Love this little display from a local professor.

Of course I'm going to find the sewing machine and quilts. Love this old quilt. I think the star background fabric is quite charming.

A wonderful look into the heart of the home...the kitchen!

This huge spinning wheel was on a shelf above the door. It was quite large.

Cool woven blankets...these remind me of the east coast.

Interesting tobacco quilt.

We left the museum and were headed home when we came upon a little tasting room for a local winery. It was called White Salmon Vineyard. We enjoyed a delightful man named Doug. He was a friend of the owners and being retire, this was just a fun job for him. I think he was actually paid with bottles of wine. Anyway, he spent so much time with us and we really learned a lot.

At the end of our visit, we were getting hungry. Doug suggested that we try a place called Everybody's and he gave us directions. Oh my goodness...great fun! I had a sweet potato burrito that was so delicious!  We sure had a fun day.
