A Little Break From "Thank You" to Take You Shopping!


My new dining room? I wish! Beautiful space isn't it?

There is a new shop in town! Miss Adelines! Our friends (and the owners), Pam and Debra Pulioff, will be holding the grand opening this coming Saturday, March 5th from 1:00 to 5:00.!

Locals - you just have to drop by.

My sweetie and I did some of the photography for the web site so I am sharing a few of my favorites because I know that those of you that are too far away to visit, will love seeing the shop!


Most of the furniture has been hand painted by Pam - like this gorgeous game set .


I love the fish detail on the ends of the table...


and the chairs.


And don't you love this little side table. Check out the high heels on the bottom of the legs!


One room is all about kids! Pam painted everything you see in the picture including the wall! AND the carpet on the floor! I didn't know carpet could be painted! It can! And it totally looks like a real brick floor! (She is NOT selling the floor, however!)

Love the high chair. Love it!


And check out these fabulous hand puppets. Twelve to fourteen inches or bigger! Every animal you can imagine and so soft and squishy and cuddly. I need a puppet like I need a hole in my head, but I just have to have one of these!


Finger puppets! Look at the detail! They are wonderful! What kid wouldn't love play-acting with a few of these?


Back to Pam! My friend Pam! She paints the bird houses - they are custom built by a good friend.

The sun flowers and the Sun - very clever reuse project! But I am divulging no secrets!

For those of you across the country or across the ocean for that matter, I hope you enjoyed a little shopping trip!

If you live in the Portland/Salem area, go see for yourselves how cute this shop really is. If you can make it for the grand opening this coming Saturday - all the better!

LOVE the finger puppets and

LOVE the finger puppets and especially the high heeled table!! What a conversation piece that would be! LOL

Absolutely gorgeous!!! And

Absolutely gorgeous!!! And very inspiring too!

Oh, Pam, isn't it amazing how

Oh, Pam, isn't it amazing how you can change the entire look of a room just by putting your own stamp on it? Of course, this makes me want to paint furniture. I have unfinished pieces in my own living room! This has given me a flight of fancy.

I'm going to go look at their site so I can see more of your great photography, too.

The store looks really quite

The store looks really quite unique and interesting, and I wish I lived closer to visit it!

The first picture is so refreshing and Springy! I wonder if I could talk my better half into having a hutch for all seasons... The storage would not be fun though. :)

When I taught Kindermusik, I used a bunch of Folkmanis Puppets, and I highly recommend them. The quality is excellent, and the designs are adorable. If I could, I'd own one of everything!

I wish your friends the best of luck with their new store!

I'm drooling. The furniture

I'm drooling. The furniture is to die for! Where I come from, IKEA is about as creative as it gets! Maybe I need to learn how to carve and paint furniture. :-) Thanks for sharing the lovely photos!

Oh Pam the shop looks

Oh Pam the shop looks wonderful. Can't wait to get home and see for myself.

Oh - how beautiful is the

Oh - how beautiful is the store. I wish wish wish we had a store like that here. I absolutely love the little hand puppets. And the flowers are gorgeous.

Do they have an online store? Guess I moved out of Salem Oregon 20 years to early. :-)

Great job on the pictures.
