This summer I was finally able to take a side trip to Sisters Roadside Treasures. I had three of our five grandchildren with me and they were as eager as I was to see it.
After turning off the highway, it was a short and pleasant drive down a gravel road, bordered on each side by gorgeous canola fields in bloom. When I first drove up to the hip-roofed barn, my jaw dropped! The huge front porch was filled to overflowing with so.much.stuff. Gasp!
And now, looking back … I’m wondering why did I not take more photos? I’m so disappointed in myself (that I might have to return ;) … but the photos of the kids with the barn kittens … now that I can’t recapture … major bummer.
All I captured was the car …
… and the kid capturing the van …He looks so comfortable with my phone (10 pics in 5 seconds comfortable :)
Oh, you definitely have to go back! I want to see more. I want to see the STUFF!! :-) I love that old car filled to bursting with those vivid flowers!
Thank you León! oh, I definitely plan to go back ;)
Oh this could provide inspiration for many posts Barb. Creativity in abundance – both in what the sisters have done and how you photograph it. I loved seeing how you have encouraged the grands to look through the lens too.
Thank you Dorry … yes, I see a few more posts in the works here! I so appreciate your support!
LOVE it. Every once in a while I’ll come across a repurposed car or one still running covered in seashells or something. Ten pics in five seconds, lol! You should go back and take more photos cuz I love these.
Thank you so much Jeanna!
Now I want to go! That car looks so cool!!!

Sounded like a wonderful day you’ll treasure with the grandkids for a long time.
Maybe because I am new at photography, I find taking pictures distracting. I have to put away the camera to really enjoy the moment. LOL.
I do love your pictures and the great things you’re teaching the grands.
Oh man! I think I really need to go there! :) How cool!

What a fun place… that car is fabulous. It is such a shame you will have to return ;-D. Thanks, Barb, for linking up to Life Thru the Lens. I am super excited to have you over there.
