October came and went so quickly that it was three days into November before I realized it was gone. It was a full month, and a beautiful one.
We spent a few days at our favorite inn which is in the restored section of Salem, NC. Originally a village founded by Moravian missionaries in the eighteenth century, today Salem is half of the city of Winston-Salem.
Still, one gets a feeling of being in a quiet colonial town, especially at night when the tourists and school groups have left.
I was lucky enough to find this great Scottie pillow cover at a local thrift store.
I’ve already written about helping out with an estate. Here are some of the patterns that came with the cutting table I got.
I spent a day at the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens, Georgia. I was there to see the Pucci exhibition I wrote about earlier, but I also spent time with the permanent collection. This painting is Taxi! Taxi! By Eugenie McEvoy. I love how the pair of lovers in the back are reflected in the driver’s seat.
I left enough time to go shopping in downtown Athens. There are several vintage stores, but they have a very young clientele, being in a college town. It’s amazing what passes as “vintage” these days.
Of course I can’t survive just on museums and vintage. Here’s my post museum and shopping lunch: pimento cheese burger, Bell’s amber, and fries.
On Halloween I was treated to this pile of deadstock vintage at the Metrolina Antiques and Collectibles show. There were some really nice pieces in that pile.
It was a month of beautiful sunsets, but this one was my favorite. It almost looked as if there were a giant glowing object just over the horizon.
