Birthday junk finds!

Today started off with having to call the cops. On my birthday non the less!! HAHA! Are you curious yet?
Well, we decided to go to Mc Donalds to grab breakfast (mostly because I wanted a Pumpkin Spice Latte Mocha Cappuchino fancy schmancy big girl coffee drink because I really don't like coffee but when it's filled with mostly cream then I'm good!) Soooooo, as we proceed to get back into the truck.....BAM! Reality hits us in the face with the fact that the keys are locked inside the truck. So Mr. OTM had to call the cops to get us back in business. I sat on the tailgate and sipped my uber fancy kind of coffee feeling very trendy and answering "yes" to everyone who asked" lock your keys in the truck?"  It didn't bother me one bit because it was , after all , my birthday and we were going junk hunting as soon as this little mess was taken care of.
Once we were on the road again, I realized that I wished I would have just downed this coffee thing because it was a nuisance trying to keep it from spilling onto my new hoodie (birthday present from hubs!) Anyway, I managed to only get one teeny tiny spot on the front of me. I consider that a success!!!
Once we got to the flea market I was ready to hunt for some bargains and I am soooo happy to say I FOUND SOME!!
Take a look at these! I was thrilled to find this old wood ice cream bucket , an adorable chippy white clock and some dried hydrangeas!

Take a quick guess what I paid for all of these treasures.
Go ahead , I'll wait......................

The grand total for all of these pieces was $5.00!!!!
I couldn't believe it either!
Here's the breakdown:
Bucket: $2.00
Drieds: $1.00
An interesting morning + a fun afternoon with great junk finds= a perfect birthday!
Hope your day was great too!

Road trippin....

Well , I have been a busy girl lately running the roads . The last two weeks have been spent in Georgia, Florida , and Tennessee!I had the best time. I was so happy to be able to participate in the Mt. Dora Fall in the Fields show and the City Farmhouse show. Both shows gave me the opportunity to introduce Olde Tyme Marketplace to people I have never met.
It was so fun to get to know Facebook and blog followers!

It's almost time to turn the shop over to Christmas. I can't believe it's already coming. I enjoy fall so much and I love the colors and how easy it is to create a stunning display. It's all in the pumpkins. I wish there were such a thing as Christmas pumpkins!! Think I am going to enjoy it as long as I can.
Chat soon!
