I figure if zig-zag is has to do with sharp corners or turns, then ric rac must have to do with softer ones. If you follow my logic, I think that you will agree. This brings us to my friend Lisa Plumb's brand new blog, Big Yellow Ric Rac

Lisa has been my friend for 20 years, and she is the most grateful, positive person that you could ever meet. She lives in Eugene with her sweet best friend husband, Jack. I can't believe how awesome Big Yellow Ric Rac is! Man, if only my blog started out as professional as Lisa's is. On top of the recipes, crafts and travel stories, this gal can really write. Please check out Big Yellow Ric Rac when you have a minute, and let Lisa know that I sent you her way!

"I'm a brand new blogger, yammering on here about gratitude, food, recipes, my love of slow cookers, vegetables from our CSA, card making, eating Pad Thai at Saturday Market, going to estate sales and of course, ric rac!"

Okay, you guys, I am so stoked! Last year we bought this little vintage Shasta travel trailer from our neighbors. It had been in their family since it was new in 1967, and is in really good shape. We had it down at work as a security trailer, but just brought it home on Thursday. I am going to clean the inside, repaint the trim on the outside and make slipcovers with some vintage fabric that I have. Then, I'll start stocking it with my handcrafted gifts. I'm so excited, because there will be so much more room in our home!
It is going to be my own little store. I've always wanted one, ever since I was little and my Grandma T. had hers. There are plans in the works for holding several small craft fairs this summer with my local crafter friends. I think that we can also hold special teas there too. The possibilities are endless, if you ask me.
I'll be doing a Sepia Saturday post about the trailer itself later, but I just wanted to to tell you about it. Thanks to my Cary for once again supporting my dreams. I sure do love that man.
Have a wonderful weekend, to you all. Please keep all of our storm friends in your thoughts and prayers. I sure am.
Today is the twenty-sixth day of the A - Z Challenge, which is hosted by Arlee Bird's: Tossing It Out. Several of my blogging friends are participating, and this year there are over 1,200 participants. We post everyday, except for Sundays, and work our way through the alphabet. I am posting past photos that I have taken, and am linking them up to the posts where the photos originated from too. When you are all done here at Oregon Gifts, please click here to visit the other bloggers who are participating in this challenge.
