I've done a lot of antiquing in my day
and there is 1 shop that stands above all.

Monticello Antique Mall in Portland, Oregon.

I will drive for 6 hours to shop.
It was the first stop on our trip

and again

I was not disappointed!

I studied all of the details ...all of the minute details.

Beautiful as usual.

Here are spaces from blogging friends...

Kathy from Colby Cottage

A dreamy pink mixer

bird cage, lace and tin -such a lovely trio



Debbie with My Shabby Roses
Isn't this bottle sweet?



Lisa and Isabelle

For all things pink...

How fun it must be to be part of such a great store!

I would drive 6 hours to visit that shop. So quaint, and is full of fascinating things.


Hi René,
I had to pop over here and see where you went on your trip, omg I could get lost in there forever and be happy!! How did you make yourself leave? LOL.

What a great place to shop. Love the pictures that you shared it was almost like being there. Sure kept me out of trouble too.

My Shabby Roses said...

Rene' I'm so glad you were able to go to Montis. It is a fun place to shop isn't it. Thank you for taking a picture. I have to say it was a little messy, I had to go in and straighten things up.

I hope you and your hubby had a wonderful time!

Hi Renee,
Thanks for coming by on Saturday. I'm assuming you made it to Martha's, and I'm sure you found it worth the trip. I am looking forward to getting away in a couple of weeks.
I love love love your new banner!!

The Pink Bird House said...

Rene, thanks for all the visits to my blog and the nice comments that you leave for me! Always a pleasure to see you there.

I love all your pictures of the antiques and vintage items. but that pink mixer has got to be my favorite! I love pink and altho it would not match my kitchen, what a delightful item to have!

I hope you and DH had a great weekend away. I think every couple needs time away, alone, to reconnect and simply enjoy each others' company without all the pressures of daily life!

take care, I'll drop by again soon.

Hello Rene'!

I'm really trying not to be too jealous of your trip to Monticello...such lovelies in every direction as far as the eye can see! I LOVE the montage you put together and the photos of the great blogger's booths you scoped out - gave me a wonderful taste of their great NW fabulousness! I hope you and hubby have had a wonderful time...thanks for sharing!

Hugs and Blessings,
Becky S.

It was great to see you and your husband on Sat, so glad you made it over! Hoping to get over your way one of these days! I love Monticello too - it's one of my fav places also.

Becky said...

Hi Rene, I'm so glad you had a chance to visit the Monticello. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures of my booth as well as the other wonderful pictures. It truly is a pleasure to be part of such a fun store. I love my trips to the store to restock. It is always inspiring and a treat to go. It is two hours from my home but I pretty much go every 2 weeks.So glad you got away with your hubby. Kathy
