Antiques and More

Today was a balmy 62 degrees with a warm wind and quite lovely!  Break out the Chacos (again) and capri pants!

We went back to visit some shops in Sisters, Oregon, which is 21 miles from our home.  Browsed some antique stores, the ultimate quilt store, and had a couple of appetizers at Black Butte Ranch.

Here are a few pictures from the day:

I love oreos.  Especially deep fried in tempura.

The smallest chicken I've seen!  How adorable!

Steel plumb-bob

Cute cheeseburger salt & pepper shakers

We also visited Beacham's Clock Company. The most impressive clock shop I've ever been in.  It made me think of my Dad, since he is a clock apprentice in Greenville, part-time.  Beacham's has a beautiful clock for $30,000, and it has so many fancy features.  Pictures don't really do it justice.

Tiny precision drill press

Custom handmade gravity escapement clock with a globe, all based on solar and lunar.

He makes the cases too!

Happy Hour at Black Butte Ranch:

Pulled pork sliders

Parmesan risotto

Delish food and worth the WW points!  We'll have to go back for dinner sometime.
