Last Wednesday Olive from Olive Out (no blogging right now - catch her on Instagram - OliveOut) and I flew up I-20 in the old coffin carrier to go junkin'.
Any trip is fun with Olive, but especially a road trip.
A fan blade - a quickie project in the works.
A battered fire bucket.
A tray of mismatched baby shoes.
Old photo of a boy with glasses.
A gigantic floral frog.
A big bag o'buttons.
An old post card album - no post cards.
A cute kitty painted as if jumping right through the cover.
Did you streak in college?
I won't tell!
Inquiring minds want to know.
Dr. Zhivago - Omar Sharif, his handsome self.
He died in July.
Print of an old pencil sketch - have a thing about dogs!
A tangle mess of an Italian tole chandelier.
I am hoping there is some beauty left in the old gal.
Silver, brass, and glass.
Quite the combo.
Rotate the lid one way to find your tongs.
Rotate the opposite way to find your ice in a milk glass container.
Funny thing - I have never seen an ice bucket quite like this.
I found TWO!
The first one was missing the device to open it so I reluctantly passed it by.
Then found this one in good condition.
American tole VS
Which would you pick?
It took Olive and I several tries to figure out this is a table base.
No, really, it is.
Gathering things for a booth display - it's beginning to look like a plaid Christmas.
Blue and black plaid suitcase (in the shadows).
Fake cedar in a copper pot.
Two vintage tin Christmas trays.
A plaid horse tray.
Even the racket press is MacGregor.
I did not mean to skip fall.
A photo holder to display post cards.
A fruit tray.
A Sterling China tea pot (now in Etsy shop).
The rusty graniteware pot - perfect for a fall arrangement.
Three star molds.
Pair of matching Berkeley Sterling cream pitchers. (In Etsy).
Vintage biscuit tin. (Etsy)
Sitting around doing nuttin'.
Two star wands.
Six fake old keys.
More silverplate - most have made it to Booth C-23 and more will be going.
Another Gideon Bible rescued.
It was a perfect day.
We left Madison after lunch at Perk Avenue where Olive had some concoction called Cin-n-tell - espresso, cinnamon, and other various ingredients topped with whipped cream.
It smelled delicious, but I don't do coffee.
Headed back down the interstate to stop in Mimi T's in Warrenton where Olive is opening a new booth called Olive Out.
Don't worry - you can still find her at The Broome Closet in Ridge Spring.
Then ended the day at Uncle Junk's in Thomson.
