Poulsbo is a picturesque town located on Liberty Bay on the Kitsap Peninsula. It’s known as “little Norway” Poulsbo was settled in 1892 by Norwegian loggers, farmers and fishermen who likened the fjord-cut landscape to their homeland.
On Wednesday when Beth picked me up from the Ferry landing we headed here to walk about and check out the 2nd hand store she volunteers at once a week. The 2nd hand store uses their profits to feed the hungry in this area.
How about this mural as a surround for the door to the chocolate shop?!
I took this photo from the inside of the Bakery looking out on the colorful storefronts.
I really like the fun setting of this Mexican restaurant with the eye catching items they’ve decorated with.
There were a few other restaurants I’ll remember if Dear and I ever venture back here. Thanks for showing me around Poulsbo, Beth.
Next time I’ll show you the amazing views around Dave and Beth’s home.
Northwest Weather Notes: It’s sizzling here in the Pacific Northwest. We are looking at breaking some heat records today.
Any fun plans for the weekend? Dear is probably going to work on the house again. I’m going to a Ruffles and Rust sales event in the morning on Saturday. On Sunday our church has their Summer Sunday service. One service instead of 3 all together at a neighboring large piece of property owned by a member of our church. Dinner, service and baptisms all outdoors. BYOC…bring your own chair! I’m thinking about taking an umbrella, too. Have a great weekend!

What a picturesque town! It is so quaint and darling. I’m sure that you’ll get back there again. Your husband must see it for himself.
Stay cool now… Enjoy what promises to be a fun weekend.
Nothing happening here. =D
Ruffles and Rust event? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of that, Ellen…what is it? As for the town of Poulsbo…WOW!!! Just like something out of a magazine or a movie set! The phone booths are really like that there?!??!!! So cool!!! Very colorful!!! I hope you don’t get too overheated this weekend. We are FINALLY enjoying some MUCH cooler weather here in the Kansas City, Mo. area with highs in the low 80s. Tomorrow is only supposed to hit the 70s! Have a good weekend, and enjoy your church service!
Alycia, Here’s a link to “Come Junk With Us” webpage. They have a store in Snohomish called Ruffles and Rust. The event this weekend is close to me. It’s like a flea market only nicer… http://comejunkwithus.com/
What a fun town. I love all the colors! Hey, you have another follower from our area. It is indeed finally cooler here. I heard last night we would need 3 inches of rain to consider the drought being broken. We had a bit yesterday and the sound of the thunder and rain was so soothing to the soul. Our daughters church is doing the same special baptism/party weekend at a local city lake….guess its the thing to do before everyone gets back into school schedules. Enjoy your weekend. Ruffles and Rust sounds intriguing.
I’m of Scandinavian descent, and the brightness of that little town is so appealing to me!
Ruffles and Rust also sounds like it’s right down my alley—can’t wait to see what treasures you find!
It’s sizzling up here too! We’re off to a waterside B&B for the weekend. I might even get in the water…….
It is such a beautiful place to visit. I would never have known that. Thank you for sharing your visit Ellen.
Tonight we are babysitting and that is all we have scheduled for now. =)
You almost have me persuaded…to bring my chair and join you on Sunday!
Ruffles and Rust…love the name!
Neat little town you toured. Love it.
Sure looks like a neat place to visit. Those were some huge hanging baskets in the phone booth shot. Ruffles and Rust…what kind of sale is that? Sounds like something I would like! I am sure Sunday will be a blessing…possibly a warm one! 🙂
The town looks like it is a miniature village–so colorful and decorative. LOVED that chocolate shop!
Beautiful! I do love that decor at the Mexican restaurant. I think that color scheme will somehow work into a future quilt! If that truly happens, I will be sure to let you know and credit you! 🙂
