Love of all things rustic

Hello all! It’s been a while since my last post, I’ve been seriously slacking. Actually life has been so hectic that things fell by the wayside. All my life craziness has apparently caught up with me, because now, with a baby due in April, I’m hanging out at home on bed rest. This is day 2, and do you know what there is to do on bed rest? SIT AROUND! Needless to say I’ve signed up for Netflix, and busted out embroidery projects to work on. The little things about living on my little farm that didn’t seem like a big deal before, are now feeling a bit restrictive. For example, until moving here I had lived in the town with the first fiber internet, boasted to be the fastest internet in the country. Do you know what I have now? Satellite internet that bounces off a potato shed a few miles away! Loading. Loading. I was once asked by a friend from the wet side of Washington if we had internet and phones and stuff like that in my area. I laughed and said, “Nope we jump up on the roof and yell from house to house”. Well, I may have been being sarcastic at the time, but I’m starting to feel that way with my internet. But it’s okay, Netflix still mails DVDs.

Anyway, that’s really not the point of my post today. Since I have time to sit and plan, I’ve been planning my schedule, and getting excited about this spring/summer. One of my favorite things coming up is the variety of vintage shows throughout the area.

When adding new pieces to my home I like them to have stories behind them. For example, Hubby and I had a little weekend getaway, and on the way home stopped at this cute shop in the little town of Reardan, and found this great desk. It’s not a monumental moment for us, but the desk is now something I see and remember our mini road trip weekend.

Honestly I don’t remember much about the weekend, but I remember the quality time of our drive, and stopping at the little shops on the way home. I have a fun “sign” I found at the Vintage Faire in Okanogan, it was a fun girl’s trip with a friend I’ve had since middle school. The sign is made using an old seed bag from Othello. Although the seed company I work for is a town over, Othello is close enough that it was a little piece of history from my area I could incorporate in my home.

I’ve compiled a list of great events in the Eastern Washington area and most are coming up soon:

Antiques & things – April 4th at the O’Sullivan Grange hall between Moses Lake and Warden off Hwy 17
