west linn oregon: What Do West Linn, Walmart And The Star Magazine Have In Common? - 07/30/12 07:06 PM
What Do West Linn, Walmart And The Star Magazine Have In Common? C'mon..admit it, you like perusing those "Star" magazines at the checkout counter right? I know I secretly (ok..maybe not so secretly now) like to see those "real" pictures that show a cellulite pocked thigh on a movie star. I also like to shop in Walmart when I'm around one..which I have a feeling that many also love to do..but won't admit to it. I guess wearing a blouse with a Kathy Lee tag is just..well..just so Walmarty. Well, When Walmart first announced that they were going to be (13 comments)

I was excited when I saw that huge for rent banner removed that once covered the front of the old Willamette General Store..and in it's place was a newly fixed up and remodeled interior that has now revitalized this once run down space. New owner Ryan Dato and family took this place and transformed it into a space that just calls you to come inside. In a time where those big stores are prevelant, it's so nice to see a store like this open up. The outside was spiffed up but still (13 comments)
west linn oregon: Let me tell ya bout the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees...in West Linn Oregon - 10/08/11 10:24 PM
Let me tell ya bout the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees...in West Linn Oregon Today was a gorgeous day in West Linn Oregon, with the sun shining and the weather in the mid 60's. A perfect kind of day to get out and about enjoying the fall festivities around town or for fall gardening. Both of which I was really itching to do...but with a torn calf muscle, I'm supposed to stay off of my leg for a bit. I did however "hobble" out to my deck to lay on my lounge chair and soak up (21 comments)
west linn oregon: West Linn, Oregon ranks in Money Magazines top 100 Best Places to Live - 08/19/11 01:12 PM
West Linn, OR ranks in Money Magazines top 100 Best Places to Live I've known that West Linn is a great place to live, because I've been living and enjoying it for two years now. According to Money Magazines 2011 list of best small towns to live, West Linn came in at # 69 . Now..I will however admit that when living in and loving Tualatin for many years, I initially didn't have West Linn on my radar as a place I would eventually live. Circumstances had us looking for a home with a possible seperate living quarters should (6 comments)

(Cindy's Blog about Portland Real Estate & Stuff) Wisteria blooms in my West Linn Oregon backyard
I don't seem to recall this wisteria blooming this much last year, so hoping it's due to the new irrigation system we installed, so it received lots of good water during our usually drought summer months. I've always loved looking at wisterias in the gardening books and magazines, so when we were buying this house, I was excited to see it had a nice strong vine. When we bought our home this vine had been left on its own for quite (11 comments)
west linn oregon: Pretty in Pink..Cherry blossoms in West Linn Oregon - 05/01/11 10:42 PM
Pretty in Pink..Cherry blossoms in West Linn Oregon My Cherry trees have finally blossomed that line the one side of my yard. When we bought our home in the summer of 2009, the yard was very overgrown and had not been taken care of for quite some time. The Cherry trees had the "wilt" so were not looking too good. We had an arborist come in and trim them back and they put something in the soil at the base of each one to help the wilt..so fingers crossed. Right now they look beautiful!
west linn oregon: One mans garbage is anothers treasure...West Linn Curbside cleanup coming the week of April 4th-10th 2011! - 03/27/11 05:01 PM
One mans junk is anothers treasure...West Linn Curbside cleanup coming the week of April-4th-10th, 2011! So last time they city of West Linn did this, I missed out. I went outside and was wondering why there were sofas, lawn furniture,appliances and such out with the regular garbage. I had soooo much stuff that I could have put out to take advantage of this, but the day my garbage was collected I was off an running so it was too late. Being a lover of garage sales and garden art, I did do a quick look see around my neighborhood to (8 comments)
west linn oregon: Need a reason to start using video?...you just never know where they will show up! - 03/11/11 06:48 PM
Need a reason to start using video?..you just never know where they will show up! Ever since the ActiveRain video challenge, I've been working on making some local videos, as well as taking some for my blog while traveling. I just recently googled my cwestfall60 Youtube channel and there were a few things that caught my eye that I never noticed before. I noticed lots of sites that have my cwestfall60 attached to it..many foreign. There was also a travel site, world news network, alternative healing site (thinking the calming beaches maybe), as well as several local sites that linked to (16 comments)
west linn oregon: Historic Willamette Neighborhood..a great place to live and visit, shop and eat - 01/28/11 01:53 PM
Historic Willamette Neighborhood..a great place to live, visit, shop and eat. If you've never visited the Historic Willamette Neighborhood, you're missing out on something special. When I first moved to this neighborhood over a year ago, it was not only because I fell in love with my home, but also love being able to take a walk..or very short drive to shop and dine here. Located in West Linn, Oregon, the Historic Willamette neighborhood has that small town charm with its nice shops, restaurants and businesses. During the year, you can watch parades, dance your heart away in the streets during (20 comments)
(Cindy's Blog about Portland Real Estate & Stuff) Today was the Ugly Holiday Sweater Dash and Parade in West Linn, Oregon. I woke to the sound of downpouring rain and thought maybe this would be cancelled...yeah right..this is Portland! NOTHING gets cancelled in the rain. They did say we were in for 1-3" today. I got to Field's Bridge Park around 8 AM and there were already several volunteers all huddled under this pop up waiting for our assignments and for runners of the dash to come and sign up or sign in. The gal in charge,Bridget Saladino, gave the (8 comments)
