Of course we first had, HAD, to stop at Uncle Junk's to see what we could find.
We took my Blazer which Olive calls the coffin carrier.
Actually I could fit a coffin in the back quite nicely.
If I ever cleaned it out!
I bought this wonderfully fabulous watering can.
Not for gardening.
This was used at the old-time full service gas stations to fill radiators. Some of you are old enough to remember never traveling without a jug of water to keep your car from overheating.
I have only seen a couple of these recently and was deliriously happy to purchase this one at a great price.
See all the primitive wood furniture in the truck?
Blame the snow.
Bag of mixed silver and silverplate spoons of different sizes.
Large bag of iced tea spoons.
All kinds of patterns.
A large bag of mixed items from serving pieces to pickle forks.
All of these are perfectly tarnished and ready for crafting.
Most I will probably put on Etsy.
After I pick through them some more.
At Mimi T's in Warrenton, I found this cute pink gravy boat, a milk glass batter bowl, and two small glass insulators.
I bought this US Mint bag for the booth - I have several customers who collect them.
This dealer was selling "Time Machine in a Bag" - a large lot of old family photographs.
I bought a couple of hundred.
I have already scanned a few for tags and other projects.
I love just sitting and looking at the people and wondering what stories they could tell.
Think about it. Fifty years from now, what will people find to record our daily lives?
Primitive digital cameras?
A zinc scoop with two holes for a metal label, but that is gone.
The other scoop is handmade from a tin can with a handle soldered on.
I love make-do's!
A child's tiny skate with a green leather lace-up toe piece.
A collection of glass stoppers.
Some missing pieces.
Imagine them in a type drawer.
This is the urn I bought from Mimi T's on Facebook. The reason Olive and I were traveling. Last Monday I lugged it out of the truck (It is solid cast iron and weighs a ton!). Then I dragged it from place to place in the front yard to be able to find the perfect place for the snow to fall upon its loveliness.
Molly the cat thought we were playing some kind of new game.
Finally I decided on my fern stand with my footless angel guarding it. (Chucks dropped her a few years ago. How many years of bad luck is that?)
My neighbors thought I was crazy.
Until Wednesday morning dawned on this in the front yard with three inches of snow.
It made me happy.
No, I will not make you listen to the minion song again. You can find it HERE!
