Hoodoo Antiques

While in Portland last weekend, we discovered a wonderful shop: Hoodoo Antiques. This is Mike Eadie, the friendly proprietor. Check out his cool assortment of unique items.

I think you'll agree, Mike has a real knack for finding the unusual.

I couldn't pass up these fabulous letters. They are now hanging on my wall.

So if you find yourself in Portland, make sure you visit this marvelous shop! You can't miss it...just look for the flying pony out front.

Portland, Oregon...It's a Great City!

Last year, when our daughter Emily announced she would be attending Portland State University we couldn't have been happier. Finally, a great reason to visit one of our favorite cities. This is Emily's second year at PSU so we thought it was time for our anual visit.

We spent Sunday afternoon strolling the downtown area. Operating since 1974, the Saturday Market on the Historic Waterfront is the largest continuous open air market in the country.

The Market features a variety of arts, crafts, food booths, street preachers, mimes and musicians.

Our daughters, Emily and Leah enjoying the sunshine. The weather could not have been more perfect for our weekend visit. Clear skies and temperatures in the 70's.

Me and Poopsie.

Next stop, the Pearl District and Powell's Books. No trip to Portland would be complete without a trip to "the world's largest independantly owned" bookstore.

Oh, look. I've found something naughty to read. Even us middle aged gals need a little excitement, too.

The 24 hour church of Elvis caught our eye. Sadly we were dissapointed when after we inserted our coins, NOTHING HAPPENED! Apparently, Elvis has left the building.

Apparently, this is where they keep the girls.

There is no shortage of colorful types on the streets of Portland. That's what I love about Portland; the best people watching west of the Rockies. It really is a great city!

Portland...keepin' it weird.
Love, Kelly
