Wednesday, A Day Off {part two}

After visiting Here Mark and I decided to go hang out at our favorite architectural salvage company Here in Aurora, Oregon. If the truth be known, I could spend hours in there digging through the treasure trove of found and salvaged objects. I never, ever get tired of the discovery of vintage pieces from a bygone era. It doesn't matter that I have to squeeze in and out of tight spaces or scoot around one thing to get to another, I am in heaven amidst the history in the dust. I feel as if every piece has a story waiting to be told, and if you stop long enough to listen, you'll hear it too. Here's just a bit of the day and the wonderful vintage pieces I came across.


Yes there are a lot of pictures, but believe me,
you have no idea how difficult it was
to pick just one and be happy with it!
Oh and I can't wait to go back ;-)


  1. Girlfriend, I knew you'd be the first to want to go there:) I can't wait to go again...matter of fact, what are you doing right now:)

  2. I never thought I'd hear the day when Terry said she enjoyed dust :)

    Sounds like a WONDERFUL day - thanks for letting us live vicariously through you!


  3. Oh my goodness, what a treasures! I see why you enjoy being there, the place is out of this world!


  4. Even if its all you do in that darling little town, its worth it.
