On Friday Olive from Olive Out and I took off to pick up some purchases she and Ms. B had made, but had no room to take home. I certainly did not mind going along for the ride.
It was a gray dismal day anyway so there would be no painting around here.
We zoomed up I-20 across the Savannah River to Georgia.
First stop was Warrenton where we were to pick up the purchases. I'll let Olive explain how she managed to get one of those home!
This is Mimi T's shop - right on Main Street. It is packed to the rafters with appealing merchandise.
Isn't the doorway inviting!
The shop's other window had a Christmas display of toys.
Name something - guess what - it was there!
Folk art from a local artist.
Olive and the shop owner figured out exactly where to put a huge, ginormous ____. Not going to tell you - ask Olive.
I just shopped!
I hope Santa fills the stockings of Hollie and Laney this Christmas.
I really enjoyed the visit.
If you are ever near Warrenton, Georgia, go visit Mimi T's.
Just a few doors down was Andersons Market. Olive had a mission to find something for Ms. B, and the shop is only open on Fridays.
I was hooked the moment I spied the giant metal chickens.
Everything metal was 50% OFF!
Look at the white hutch - it was filled with all kinds of pewter animals and not ONE sheep!
The back room was filled with these handcarved frames from India. My poor photography does not do their beauty justice. There were stacks of them.
I may have to sneak back to Warrenton for one small one.
Next we headed to Thompson to Uncle Junk's.
Neither words nor pictures can accurately describe this unique place.
Let's just call it a pleasure palace for junkers.
This typewriter meets you at the front door.
How in the world did I miss buying a sign with my name on it!?!
Did I purchase anything?
Now, come on, this is the Junkin' Jewel here.
I will share my treasures later.
They are small.
They are cute.
They are rusty, crusty, and vintage.
They are not in the slash room. (Remember the big reveal the first week in December.)
Some of you may have read my sentimental post You Don't Bring Me Flowers about my thirty-third wedding anniversary.
Chucks helped pick the photos and approved the post. (Well, I let him think he did!)
After the long day out junking with Olive, I returned home to find this lovely poinsettia on the front porch.
Of course, he knew to properly style it next to the rusty watering cans.
He is getting to be a pro at this blogging stuff.
