Hello everyone! I hope everyone's week has started off good! Mine was not so bad, at least we did not need the air conditioning on for once and I was able to open the windows up wide and let refreshing air in. I hate having the house closed up with the a/c's on, it gets so stale inside.
Well , weekend went well. I can't believe my hubby let me go to another auction, lol. I had mentioned on Thursday and he rolled his eyes at me. So I didn't mention it again til Sunday morning around 7:30. I looked at him and asked him if he had any money since I wanted to go and since he was still half asleep, he said okay :) So I dragged my 13 yr old son Noah outta bed ( much to his dismay, but he needed to get out of the house and do something since all he does is lay around and watch t.v. and pester his younger siblings) and off we went. And hubby had to get up and watch the rest of the kids when he wanted to sleep in, hehe. It wasn't a huge auction, but oh my it took forever for the little things like jewelery and figurines to be sold, like 1 1/2 hours and we got tired of standing so we took a seat for the good stuff to begin. I won a wood box or so that is what they described, but it looks more like a big antique cradle that doesn't rock, lol, so I'm thinking it might be an old dough or flour box without the lid?? Oh well, i got it for $2. I also finally got a washstand/dry sink for $22.50 and another crock. I don't have any pics yet as they are still at the auction hall because it was raining so hard and I could not get the darn tonneau cover for the truck off to put anything in it, so I have to make arrangements to go and pick it up when hubby is done working sometime this week. I can't wait to get them home and when I post pics, maybe someone can tell me what the big wood box thingy is, lol. I also got a brand new unopened mitre box kit for $3, was thinking of hubby when I got it and how he might be able to make me a few things :) and I can use it too when I make my homemade soap which I really need to make more of...I only spent $52 outta the $100 hubby gave me so he was happy to get money back! I really wanted a set of Salt Box houses pictures that you hardly ever see around this neck of the woods but it got too high in price and I knew my limit, but after I was done I was kicking myself for not getting them cause I still had money left over, lol. Oh well, next time, hehe.
Well, that was it for my adventure this weekend! Hope everyone had a great weekend and a good start to the week,
Lots of hugs, Trish
