Saturday Around Oregon

A few images from this beautiful summer day in the Pacific Northwest:

Vintage Pots_Fotor

Kicking around a vintage store in Eugene Oregon, we stumbled across these tiny pots, watering can, and in the back on the right, fruit pint containers made from wire and wood.  Darling containers + utterly impractical = win.

Lab Glassware_Fotor

Laboratory glassware would make excellent kitchen and barware.  You could measure out extremely precise amounts of cereal or gin or what have you, order replacements as easily as you reorder liquid nitrogen or stirring magnets, and cook things over a Bunsen burner.  Cheers to feeling scientific in the kitchen; cooking is, after all, chemistry.

Notice to Seedsmen_Fotor

I realized when I saw this sign, I had thought invasive species and noxious weeds were a relatively recent concern – not so.  Only one year before the referenced law on this sign, Gorse introduced from Ireland helped burn Bandon, OR to the ground, so people were familiar with the dangers of introduced species.

Inoculate Nitragin Sign_Fotor

Inoculate yer cow peas, people.
