Countryside Wandering & Thrifty Finds

Yesterday, we went out to Abbey Farm to pick up our milk – such nice people and such wonderful milk.  It’s a beautiful drive out past Molalla.  We asked them if there was a bakery nearby and they recommended a little Mexican-American bakery in Molalla called Las Delicious.  They didn’t have any loaves of bread, but we picked up some really tasty chicken tamales for lunches this week. We were still looking for bread so we stopped by Tammy D’s Cafe and Bakery in Mulino and picked up a nice loaf of sourdough.  Then a quick stop into Milk Creek Produce next door for some fruit and veg and back home for a Saturday house cleaning.

Sunday, I made my favorite outing to the two local thrift shops.  This week I found some wonderful things.

The second shop also had several lovely handmade quilts; an Easter theme, a Sunbonnet quilt and a butterflies quilt.  They are all beautifully made and will make great baby gifts.  I do need to remove a few buttons and replace them with a little embroidery.
