Olive Out Best Images 2013

From Vintage Toys post in May here.

I thought I posted this image in Southern Farm House but you can find a similar one here.
I bought a new computer in the spring and locating my images is building my character. 
Enough said.

Wire Cloche {gilded shells} here.
By the way our island has been viewed more than any other topic 
I have written about or photographed here on Olive Out.

The  mailbox image is one of my favorites indeed and tugs at my heart. 
It is from Tied To A Place here.

The island again. I almost did not buy this rack, whatever it is, but it works. 
See it here in Kitchen Island With Vintage Dish Rack.

The gallery wall in it's early stages. It has expanded. 
Find it in Gallery Wall here.

Ridge Antiques has become a huge part of my life thanks to my dear friend Beth. 
I love this stack of crates in Bob's booth read Primitives and More here.

Friendly Village China In A Toolbox here.
Blogging has been tougher for me this year than any other but I am not stopping. 
I love each of my readers and all my blog brings to me in inspiration and encouragement.

Next post will be my 2013 flower images.

Please read my post sponsored by Kaplan and Blogher here.  
Spend "thirty minutes" with me in the center I worked in as an R.N.

joy and peace

  10. Great idea to showcase your best images from this year! I'm supposed to be doing a similar post with thrift store finds, but no, I'm sitting here drinking cocoa and reading blogs. Much more fun!

  11. This is such a great look back...maybe I'm a little different but I love the photo of your gallery wall. It has so much more personality than any other I've seen.

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas!


  12. I can see why these are your favorites. I really like the mailbox picture. We both blogged less this year, but that means we were living more life away from the computer. Right?? In any event, I found your blog this year and am fond of it. XOXO
