Sitting on the mantle in the Adytum kitchen, it reminds us of a gentler time when there were formal teas and butlers and maids to serve them. It comes from a time when there was more time. From its quiet reminder to live more slowly to the time it takes to slowly polish its tarnish away, it is also about slowing down-puttering…letting your mind wander while your hands do the work, to contemplate life and the beauty shining out of the metal.

There are several vendors displaying in the Silvercreek Grange; the hours are Saturdays from 11-3:30p.m. The Silvercreek Grange is on Highway 12 off exit 68, just before the Great Wall Chinese Restaurant which happens to be run by Portlanders. If you stop there on the way to Adytum, split a plate because they serve monstrous proportions. We like the Mao Po Bean Curd and Vegetable LoMein without MSG.
