Signs, signs…

Sharing the photos we took in October of some great signs on the main drag in the city of Carnation.


This is the City of Carnation city hall and council chambers.


Miller’s next door to Lazy K’s. There is also a ghost sign on the side of the building.


I see Lee Overalls, Union Made, Miller’s Dry Goods



Later in the middle of November and in December there was a lot of flooding in Carnation. We timed our visit well.

Hope you all had and are still enjoying a wonderful yuletide. Wishing you all a Prosperous New Year!

Linking up with Lesley at signs, signs! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that your New Year will be filled with lots of good things!

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site. All my photos that I stored and uploaded from that site are now big ugly black and grey boxes with a message to pay big bucks to get them restored to my blog. It will take me a long time to restore thousands of posts.

Signs and Fences…

We took a day off from the ordinary and hit the roads east from our home to Duvall and Carnation. This is the drive into Remlinger Farms in Carnation. I’ll show you all the fun signs and fence decorations we saw.  Click here if you want to see their webpage. Here’s a little blurb about the farm; We started as a small family run farm and fruit stand and have slowly grown over the years into the Family Fun Park, Market, Restaurant and Company Picnic site we are today. Check out all we have to offer.

What are those things in the field? Here are some close-ups!

Makes me thing about being “over a barrel” but these scarecrows seem happy to be over these wheels!

We enjoyed shopping in the farm market while we were here and brought home a Remlinger Bumbleberry Pie and some Sweet Baby Corn. The bunch of carrots are from another farm we stopped at.

This was before I baked the pie. It was delicious!

This farm holds some fun family memories from the early 90’s when my husband’s employer hosted annual company picnics here. Food, drinks, and entertainment for the whole family. These were our all-time favorite company events.

I’m linking up to signs, signs with Lesley and Good Fences with TexWisGirl at Run*A*Round Ranch Report later today and tomorrow.

Hope you all have time to get out and enjoy some fall whimsy!

A New Season

Last Thursday Dear and I took a little drive not far from home to see if we could catch any new views of Autumn.

It looks promising as we hit the road east to Duvall and Carnation.

Along the Snoqualmie Valley Trail in Duvall.


There were still some nice flower patches filled with Dahlias.

This day started out with low misty clouds drifting in the sky.

It was a very nice day for an Autumn drive. We walked a little, shopped a little, ate a little, too. We came home with a pie from Remlinger farms and a nice bunch of carrots from Oxbow farm in Carnation. Both of these farms had pumpkin patches but I’ll wait for the letter P for those photos. We are enjoying this new season. Do you enjoy Autumn?

I’m linking up with ABC Wednesday that was started by Mrs. Nesbitt and is now administered by Roger and the ABC team!

A Little Diversion…

Yesterday Dear and I decided to take a short road trip to the cities of Duvall and Carnation. We enjoyed beautiful fall colors in the mist, a few fun shops and some good eats. I’ll show more of what we saw soon and I’m happy to say I finally have some more barns to share along with fences and signs.

Here’s Dear, outstanding in his field. Sorry couldn’t resist that one! We had a full day yesterday and I hope to be able to visit more of you today.

Have you been to a pumpkin patch yet?
