Not Just Covered Wagons and Beavers
The new blog will have most of our Eugene trip in full detail with pictures but I made a little side trip that was not in the Eugene area and it was defiantly blog worthy so I have to yap about.
So check out Camping Diva for the details of the trip and read on for the "behind the scenes" of the trip. Some of it's duplicated on both blog posts because I'm just not that creative and The Hubs gets tired of no dinner or clean underwear when all I do is blog.
That's us on the left, carnival truck on the right. In case you were confused.
This just cracked The Hubs and I up. We were still laughing about it on the way down the road.
My picture of the front sucks! Sorry about that. It was very cool with the GO DUCK on the lights up across the top and the old horns. The old Airstream trailer was a hoot also. This just put The Hubs in to a tail spin of wanting to BUY DUCK STUFF! Every time we saw this bus and trailer he was like a drug addict needing a fix. Except he was looking for Duck stuff. He's hell bent on trying to keep up with WSU Laura and Company!
So of course we had to go to the Duck Store at Autzen Stadium. I talked The Hubs out of the huge foam finger, rubber Duck head hat, and huge foam Duck Cowboy hat he had in his arms while standing waiting to check out. I convinced him that the t-shirt, dog sweatshirt, and stickers would be a "more better" purchase.
Look at my cute little dog. He was so damn cute in his new U of O sweatshirt. this. He looked like a little jock in his sweatshirt, collar and leash.
I never thought I would be in love with a dog but I am!
Here are my two favorite boys. They kicked me out of bed early in the morning so they could hog the entire bed. Fine by me! I got up, got ready and made them drive my high maintenance ass all over town to antique stores, junk stores, and a flea market. That will teach them!So here is my little side trip that I took on Friday. About 60 miles north of Coburg Oregon is Silverton Oregon. The home of Joy also known as Auntie Joy. Joy was having an open house this last weekend and I was lucky enough to get to sneak away and go check it out. It was all so exciting! I have read so much about her, seen her name on numerous blogs, and then she e-mailed me with a list of places to check out while I was in the Eugene area. I felt like I was about to meet a celebrity.
Joy's cute farmhouse and entry all decorated with fall stuff. It was a cold crisp fall morning and everything was lovely. Joy and Company did a great job.
Joy herself gave me a little crafty lesson on mini lamp shades and vintage pant hangers and their many uses. It was like Paula Deen (one of my idols) giving me a cooking tip while I was standing in her very own kitchen! It was so exciting
This was the cute little hired help. Emily, the niece of Auntie Joy also known as Molly Mo. She was super cute and just as full of spunk as her Auntie. I also got to meet the darling Isabel from Maison Douce who also has some great photos of Auntie Joys lovely home. One of Joy's sisters (with a fabulous new hair cut)was there that I also got to meet. I was told that there is another sister that lives near me in Arlington. I'm excited to meet her one day. Apparently she too is a Snohomish County Junk Queen.
Next I wondered in to the house that Joy had all spiffed up for her open house. I thought "what a cute farm house". Then I walked through the door and stood there like an idiot with my mouth hanging open drooling. What a beautiful home! It was like I had stepped in to the pages of Romantic Country Home.
