Moles and Sales!

Okay so I don't want alot of flack about a dead mole. He did not feel a thing! Really!! Still had a smile on his face after eating all my worms! I like animals - we have two dogs, a cat, an African Grey parrot, two Royal Palm turkeys and a dozen chickens! They are all well cared for and healthy. Moles are vile and secretive. They don't even like the sun! I am tired of going up to the garden and twisting an ankle in a mole tunnel. One down - more to come!  Took in a new kitchen Island to Monti today. The retro green spatter table sold - to Newmans Fish Market here in Portland. We shopped at their Eugene store for years. So the table ( I did crafts on it for years) went to a happy home. Enjoy the last days of summer.... ready for fall myself!

Fruit labels

I bought a large collection of vintage fruit box labels from 1930 - 1940.
Bright, bold graphics and colors.

From sunflowers to Queen Victoria. What a fun collection!

Some labels are framed but there are 50 more unframed! From $14 to $2!

An orange parking meter anyone?

The spool chest on legs will probaly sell fast.

Aprons made out of recyled jeans. Fun but so functional with all those pockets!
So take a break from your summer canning and go to Monticello Antique Marketplace on Stark
in Portland. There may be a label you have to have.
