This is the beautiful scenery we passed through in the way to the store.
My minder for the weekend was the lovely Maggie who is the Ranger rep for the area.
Heres one owner of the store, the lovely Lisa…
How frikkin fabulous are these…?
Made by the other owner of the store the lovely Michelle.
And popped into this fabulous place …
for some Chocolate stout and fish and chips…Where are we…?
We are in Rogue of course. I didn't quite make the grade as I refused to comply with all their rules lol. Apparently I am the first to have their application rejected!!! their loss if you ask me lmao.
And then it was time to go lay my head in a vintage cottage by the sea. Perfect.
Next morning we were up bright and early ready for a full day of teaching.
These lovely ladies Janna and Irene gave me bag full of gifts made in Oregon, How fabulous is that? I am so blessed
The next day started with selfless by the seafront.
Once again I was bestowed with gifts, just check out this flabby hair flower...
chunky frame decorated with old vintage wallpaper...
AND this fabulous handmade necklace.
And amazingly enough these were all made by the same person, the incredibly talented Laura. Unfortunately her contact details are packed in my case so I will add them in the next post, you really need to check her and her stuff out. All the girls at the store were drooling!! Thank you lovely Laura.
The day just seemed to whizz by and soon it was time for signing, photos and the big clean up!
Just love this group photo. Want to know how we got this angle?
He he Michelle just balanced on the roof beams, as you do!!!
I couldn't go without defacing some of their property now, could I??
The weekend just flew by and as usual I had a blast. Lisa is the cheeky louder one of the two, who's just a great big softie underneath, and Michelle is the quiet one who is hiding a fabulous talent under a bushel. Loved spending time with them both, their store is a must to go see if you are in the area.
So it was a long drive back to a hotel by the airport, a few hours repacking all my bags, 3 hrs sleep and then back to the airport at 6am this morning ready for my first 5 hr flight to Philly, then its a 5hr layover before I board for my 8hr to Heathrow. I hope to be back at mine some time mid afternoon, where my head will hit the pillow and stay there for a day or two!
See you on the other side.
