Field Trip

Saturday morning, my hubby and I headed north in search of apple cider donuts, pumpkins and salvaged wood. It was a perfect, beautiful day for a field trip.

First, we stopped at EZ Orchards, a local produce market, where we found a couple of unusual pumpkins and the most melt-in-your-mouthiest apple cider donuts. We also purchased some great produce so the donut purchase didn't seem quite so sinful. After grabbing a cup of coffee to go with the donuts, we headed further north - toward Woodburn and Al's Garden Center. I remembered that they had some wonderful white pumpkins last year.








Well, all of that sugar and caffiene kicked in and needed to be counteracted with some protein. Sooo, we stopped at a little old drive-in and got a couple of angus burgers with special sauce - YUM. Much better.














Then on to Al's where we found an assortment of pumpkins to place on the front bench.















We were still on a mission to find some salvaged, old, wood mouldings. The Aurora Mills is the place to find such stuff. It is such an interesting place. If you need it, they probably have it -- and they had exactly what I had in mind. The perfect salvaged wood to make more signs.
















Later that afternoon, we went to Albany to pick up items from the Blackberry Junction show. It was a quick task, as many of my items had sold! The items that I brought home are now listed on my Etsy store! Take a peek and I hope something strikes your fancy. If you have any questions regarding any of the items, please email.

Hi Martha -
It sounds like you had such a good field trip. I recognize the little old drive-in. It's not far from where I live. And Aurora Mills is not far from my house. I passed it very early yesterday morning on my way to the freeway for a trip to Roseburg for meetings. I would rather have stopped there to shop! But they aren't open at 6:00 a.m. so I decided to keep on my trek southward. Thanks for reminding me to drive to Aurora soon and see what goodies I find there.

I was so excited to see that you are from Salem. We moved to Missouri from Salem nearly 10 years ago. You will know exactly why we still miss it.

Jann said...

Oh, what fun! How I miss Oregon--we lived in Salem for several years and our kids attended school there. All of my children were born in Eugene--one of my very favorite places to visit was Nichol's Garden Nursery to buy herbs for my garden--your day sounds heavenly to me! Thanks so much for sharing it!
