SISTERS in Issaquah . . . be mine!

With over 20 years of experience in the antiques trade, Patty Green of

SISTERS in Issaquah,

Washington, should be on top of your list of places to see!

Combining true antiques with vintage finds is only one of the

many talents she's got going on.

Humor & whimsey abound in her style . . . .

I just love the combination of birds, flowers, nests and silver here--and

there's more all over the shop.

This is absolutely the BEST pink hairdresser's chair!!

Just a little bit of flatware in these bins . . . !

Check out these darling children's clothing hangers on a shabby shutter.

My personal favorite non-colors: BLACK & WHITE . . . .

GOT SPRING FEVER? Drive to Issaquah and pluck some great garden finds

from Patty.

Please tell her Ormolulu sent you!!!

Feel the L O V E

Peninsula Dreamland . . .

A trip to celebrate Peggy's birthday in Port Townsend led us to many

lovely places. We had our cake and ate it too at Silverwater Cafe, our favorite

restaurant in town.

Below are photos of Norma Burtz's cottage shop called "Finders Keepers".

It's a keeper for sure--be sure to stop by on your next trip to P.T.!!

This is Norma--isn't she just adorable?! If you combine her last name with my

sister's and

mine, you would have Burt, Burtz & Burton!!!

Peggy needed some birdseed, so we stopped at Wild Birds Unlimited,

in between Pt. Townsend and Sequim. It was glorious, even at this

time of year--come on spring!!!!

LOVE this fence made of pitchforks and old fan blades-turned-into-flowers . . . .

This DRAGON is made of odd metal parts--perched on top of the pergola gate.

Concrete doves sitting on a "pie" . . . tucked underneath low-lying tree.

The drive to Forks (where my sister lives) is blessed with incredible views

as you careen around the hauntingly beautiful Lake Crescent.

. . . can you feel the stillness?

We saw four proud bald eagles, but the photos didn't capture the magnitude of

their splendor!!!

I feel my blood pressure drop just looking at these photos, and I am reminded

of all in life that is

truly important . . . THANK YOU dear sister for a fantastic visit!!!!
