This barn, just about 1/2 mile away from where we live, is a beauty. My husband is going to tear it down and use the wood to build rustic hutches, shelves, potting benches, etc. These pieces will last at least a few decades and expand the life of the parts of this old shelter. Imagine if a fly on the wall could tell the stories of all that’s gone on in this old barn.
On our way to Lake Chelan, in Eastern WA, we went through Leavenworth and stopped in Peshastin, WA at Smallwood’s Harvest. We had some wonderful fruit and Paninis and I found a steal of a deal on these Fruit Labels. I’m having my husband make some rustic frames for them. I’ll post the final look soon!
Love, Love, Love the Bellingham Farmer’s Market. Experienced it for the first time recently at the Saturday Market (Wednesday Market just started at the Fairhaven Location).
Everything is HIGH quality…the food, the booths, the items, the flowers, the vegetables. My kids had hot dogs (playing it safe, I guess), I had a pork sandwich and my Mom had pizza. For a sweet treat, we had cookies and donuts. Even though it was drizzling, there were many covered areas; the COLOR everywhere was drop-dead Gorgeous!!!
Here, I share my photos with you! Check out the website HERE.
Pork and Barbecue Sauce belong together like bacon and eggs. Like peanut butter and jam. Like strawberries and whip cream. Like…I’m drawing a BLANK. What else belongs together?
The Farmer’s Market was overflowing with Lilacs and the wonderful fragrance as well.
Lilacs remind me of a day about 10 years ago when we were driving with my sister in-law, Gitti. She told us to pull over so she could cut some lilacs for her mom for Mother’s Day. Awww.
Just imagine getting up VERY early when the world is mostly asleep, putting on your rubber boots, putting on the coffee, grabbing your gloves and some shears and heading outdoors where the grass is dewey and the distance is foggy and misty but the sun shows promise way up high. The flowers are just opening their buds, the birds are talking, and Spring has arrived, finally.
My mom bought some creamy honey to put on her toast, with butter – of course. Mmmm.
Notice the very pretty oilcloth tablecloth. Oilcloth is wonderful for so many things and so easy to clean.
Are these Lilly of the Valley? I wasn’t sure. But this combo is perfect together:)
The Farmer’s Market is a place with cheerful faces, lots of COLOR, and high quality goods at affordable prices. Start one in your town!
