The Farm Girls were off to adventure to Bob's Red Mill in Portland, Oregon to explore and discover what they all had for us to take home and create with. We chose to have lunch there, which proved to be very filling, sticking to your ribs kind of filling, that is. Then we were off to The Pendleton Woolen Mill store to see what cool treasures we might find.
Katy, Erin, and Robin taking in all the products, what a great Candy store for healthy eating.
These Millstones were amazing, all I could think of was the history and all the grain it has ground.
It was fun to read the history of French Millstones. I think if you click on the photo you might be able to read it for yourself.
This view of the store is from the up stairs area, as I look this over, the feel of the store just reminds me of the OLD Nature's store that was off of the Macadam area in Portland, when I was going to college in 1969. I loved going to Natures back in the day. I guess you would call me a nature girl at heart.
Love this banner, "Flax" just a healthy grain for you.
Steel cut oats, boy am I hooked on this morning ritual. Yummy!!! We had a mid morning lunch at Bob's. We shared our journal pages and our treasures we had made. Then we were off to the Pendleton Woolen Mill.
Katy, myself, Robin, and Erin in front of the Pendleton Woolen Mill sign, a sweet worker there suggested that we do that, so here we are.
Katy has a plan here, she is getting scraps of wool strips for her mom-in-law, herself and niece so that they can each make their own rag rug. How fun is that?
Love these spools of colored thread, I find myself picking these up at garage sales and flea markets. I would guess I have weakness for textiles.
