Portland’s Rebuilding Center

May 3rd, 2006

OK, nothing to do with chickens. In fact… life does not evolve around my chickies… but they are so darn cute! Anyhoo… last Saturday we FINALLY went to the Rebuilding Center in Portland. What a cool place! Not only do they sell salvage… the building itself is a piece of art… all from salvage! If my dad lived up here I bet he’d be visiting the center every weekend! Oh the treasures to be found here!

Walls of windows… made from windows! Walls of walls… made from walls! This is a Recycling Nazi’s utopia! So anyhoo… we finally make the visit to the center. DH had an appointment at OHSU on a SATURDAY, so we pack up the car (snacks, drinks, quilting) and go with him. After the appointment, we search for the center. Not only do we find it with ease (ahem, I was driving)… we discover this cool neighborhood it’s in! The Portland neighborhood known as the Mississippi District. Kind of a mini Berekely! Very ARTSY… Sans the FARTSY!!! Countless outdoor cafes (my fave) and cool little shops. DH was less enthused… but what can I say… he’s a Washatonian!
BTW… photos were taken with my phone. Not bad, eh. I swear (shit, damn, bitch), my phone takes better photos then my camera!

I craft.
I laugh.
I misbehave.
I am inappropriate.

I am the girl your mom didn’t want you to play with.
I like to write meaningless sentences to form a curvy swoosh.
