Mississippi Avenue is a hot spot in NE Portland. It's full of charming shops, restaurants, bars and the like. It also holds a staple in the DIY homeowner's go-to repetoire. The Re-Building Center. We didn't realize it was on Mississippi until we drove past it and let out a shout for joy! Even though our tummies were grumbling, we had to check it out!
|The center takes up an entire block.|
|Doors and doors for miles! |
We plan on replacing all the doors in our new house
and this place will come in quite handy!
|Sinks and sinks and sinks and sinks.|
|Joel was in heaven. He kept saying, |
"We're going to save so much money fixing up our house!"
My man loves to save a dollar.
|Tiles. And tiles. Drool. And drool.|
|Not for sale, but charming nonetheless!|
Seriously. This place had everything you could image for fixing up your house, but it's also great for creating art, furniture, whatever your little heart desires!
I foolishly took all of these photos in b&w. Sorry about that.
We ended up eating at a cute little taqueria called Por Que No? I had the plato tipico with beans, rice, eggs and avocado and a Rosa de Jamaica tea. This was basically what I ate every day of our honeymoon in Guatemala, so it was a wonderful breakfast for me. Joel had a plain ol' cheese quesadilla (boring!) and Nolie had a little bit of everything. 'Atta girl!
All in all it was a lovely morning.
