Traveling Girl

A  little blue paperback book with the shiny embossed letters on the front cover is my favorite book. My Passport holds stamps and markings and documents travels to far away places; reminding me of foreign cultures, exotic plants, colorful markets, spicy foods, and new musical sounds.

These days my traveling is closer to home and my Passport stays tucked away in a very safe place.  The beauty and fresh air of the Oregon and Washington Coast fills me with sites, sounds, color and copious cups of good coffee.  It’s plenty good.

These snapshots are from recent roadtrips to galleries and shops that sell If Wishes Were Fishes art and jewelry in Oregon state – and hopefully they will be a little teaser, encouraging you to jump in your car and head west, too.
