Here and There....vignettes





Back from the seashore! Had a lot of fun! We went to a few places I hadn't visited since I was a child...and this time I got to view them through my child's eyes which was such a joy! We got to venture into Heceta Head Lighthouse which was interesting and hear about the isolated pioneers who braved the lonlieness and storms above the sea. We went to Sea Lion Caves and went down into the biggest sea cave in the United States. The Sea Lions didn't let us down with their antics and territorial shenaggagins! I of course made a little time to shop against the disapproval of my son and dh... Here is a little doggie I couldn't say NO to at a antique mall at the coast. I think he seems right at home on some old childrens school books from the 30's. I was lucky to inherit some old greeting/occasion cards that my great grand-dad Lions gave to my grandma Sophie...their old anniversary cards etc. so it kinda got me on a kick of picking them up here and there when I find them unused as well. I enjoy their nostalgia and sweetness. I displayed one in the old flower frog. The second pic of the young man is Grand-dad Lions in his prime! The old tin sign I found at an estate sale...I like its quirkiness. I added a pic of a newer rooster I picked up in Sumptner, Oregon. It is the one and only big flea market I get to attend. Hope everyone's week is full of Summer Sun and fun! cherry
