A seascape update......




The seascape I posted about earlier this week
got a frame.....a quite chippy/scraped frame which I 
happen to love.  

I had the opportunity to spend a few days this week
out hunting in some of my favorite
Portland antiques stores.


I passed on the ironstone - on this day.


Architectural salvage just makes me start dreaming!
I have always wanted a clawfoot bathtub!


And based on the photo below, I think I might not need
to shop for vintage paintings for awhile......


Happy Friday to you - what's on your agenda for this February weekend?
My big girl's Saturday night basketball game got cancelled -
so I promptly made dinner plans with good friends.
This is the kind of change of plans that makes me happy.
This does not however mean a lack of sports -
we will on the sidelines cheering at not ONE but
TWO soccer games.  Oh, and Valentine's - I must
convince my little girl that homemade Valentine's
are superior to Justin Beiber Valentine's from Target.
Wish me luck!

  3. Beautiful frame, Jill!

    Being fairly new to Portland, I would love to know where you where at. Coming from the midwest with lots of great antique stores, I haven't found any here that I've enjoyed as much as back home.

    Thanks for the help!

    Love your blog!

    1. Well hello Anonymous!

      You came from the midwest - I came from the midwest.....I detect a theme! Well, I always had a hard time finding good antiques stores in the midwest! I shop at Monticello Antiques on SE Stark in Portland and the Stars Antiques malls in Sellwood - those are my favs!

  4. Hi Jill, I just recently started reading your blog and love your style and philosophy about style. We have lived in our 1955 ranch style home for about 1 year now and I am still trying to finish up projects and make it "mine". I have some questions and would like some advice. Thanks~
