Under the rainbow

We went to the pumpkin patch last weekend and spotted this huge rainbow arch out near the parking lot. So, of course, jumping pictures followed. Because who doesn’t want to jump under a giant rainbow?


Tie-dye striped tank top, Loft; braided waist Lauren Conrad shorts, Kohl’s; gold bejeweled sandals, Marshall’s; Betsey Johnson bow bag, old, Ross; heart sunglasses, old,Ross.

I’ve been shopping the end of season clearance sales, which is where I found my outfit. I had credits to spend at both Kohl’s and Loft. Both tank top and shorts were less than $10. In fact, I had to go hunt for another item at Loft because I couldn’t use up the credit on my tank top after they took the additional percentage off that the clearance items were. They wouldn’t let me use the credit unless I could spend the whole amount. I also had money to spend at Victoria’s Secret, but their stuff is so expensive I settled for just buying underwear. Ha.

One thing I liked about these shorts was the braided denim waistline. It’s like having a built in denim belt on your shorts. The front pockets are very 70’s style. The shirt has fun almost tie-dyed like stripes on it. If you want to catch the end of summer clearance sales, they are going fast, so you’ll have to get out there and grab them before they’re gone!

If you are able to get out to a pumpkin patch, do so while the warm weather holds. I’m sure it will be rainy and muddy by the end of the month – at least in Oregon.

As always, thank you for stopping by!

What to do in Maryhill, WA

If you’re in North Eastern Washington, the American Stonehenge in Maryhill, WA is a must-see place to visit. Sam Hill, a wealthy railroad and utilities magnate, bought 7,000 acres of land and founded the town of Maryhill – hoping to lure Quaker farmers to settle in it. They did not.

After the town burned down in a fire, he surveyed the area and chose the high windswept spot overlooking the Columbia river and began construction on a full sized replica of Stonehenge.

Sam Hill’s memorial is meant to be a memorial to the dead soldiers of World War I, a reminder that humanity is still sacrificed for the god of war.

The Maryhill Museum was also founded by Sam Hill. It was originally intended as a home for Hill and his wife, but after a visit from his friend, Loie Fuller, he decided to turn his unfinished home into a museum.



I’ve been meaning to post more pics of this trip for a while now. I hope you enjoyed them.

Happy trails!
