I had the best time this weekend. I went to an auction, which was unbelievable.... everything was pretty much primitive, like looking at the magazines that us prim folk like, lol. I wish I had won the lottery, cause I sure would have taken everything home with me! This time I was not afriad to raise my little number card to bid and I got some good deals, I could have gotten more, but I had to watch my bank account and I had to leave earlier and I guess after I left, what was left went for a really good price! Next time, I'm going to ignore the texts and phone calls from hubby and kids asking when I'm going to be home, and can you bring home beer and when are you picking me up.... heck, I think I'll leave my cell phone at home!! I did have fun hanging out with my friend Natalie, from Carriage House Antiques , she got some really good pics of the auction :) Around here, it's not too often that you find someone that has the same tastes that include primitive decor etc., I was so glad that I was able to share Sunday with her and since she's been to more auctions than me, I think I learned a few tips, wink, wink!
What's new around here? Well, I'm almost done ripping up my livingroom floor. Everyone but my hubby is thinking I'm doing a good job... leave it to him to bring up the fact that it's a tad dirty, and maybe uncomfortable, and what the heck am I doing???? Of course, if it had been doing something that interested him, he would have no problem with it, lol. Oh well, I didn't listen to him and went ahead and there's nothing he can do about it, I'm stubborn with some things, and I think it will look great once I'm all done with it. Anything is better than chipped, outdated linoleum, hehe. Even my kids are in awe of the wood floor and hi-fiving me! So I just stick my tongue out at hubby and say....I haven't asked for help from you so don't say a word...
Anyhow, I was hoping to get pics up of my winnings from the auction and my adventures with my floor...Hopefully tommorow if all goes well, my main concern is getting this floor done and all cleaned up, I think cleaning up is worse than making the mess :P
Hope everyone is having a great week, and thanks for following!

Hugs, Trish
