A Day....at the Auction....!

I waited all day...for this crazy mug....it has all sorts of carved animals.... I have no idea...what....it is...or how old.... all I know... it's wood...metal lined... has a wonderful carved wooden handle....and someone....worked hard...carving it....and...It's a Funky....Gnarly Thing! With Gun Totin' Critters!

" I Need Thee Every Hour"..... ahhh...yes...I do....{This is Berlin Work....from the 1880's.... I have had several, over the years..."God Bless this House"..."Simply to thy Cross I Cling"...."Home Sweet Home"...but....never this one....very sweet!}

This is a 21 inch wooden bowl... it has a Great Foot, on it.... and....a Nice...Warm Feel! Love these...and....I'm sold out of Large Bowls....so was Glad to get this one!

Got a Pair of these Queen Anne Style Chairs... Love Them! They are in Great Condition...and will set right up to a dining table...Exactly what I was looking for!


I hadn't planned on these little Victorians....they have been reupholstered.... and...surprisingly...I Love Them.....Fun...Fun....Fun!
 Had a lot of Fun at the auction....got a cab full of smalls...More...Fun...Stuff! I could have bought...and bought...today....if my pocket book would have been a bit heavier! Dang! oh well....I'm Thankful...for what I got!
Hope you had a great day...!
Keep Peg in your Prayers....she's getting very weary.... the chemo...is really hitting her hard....but....it's doing it's job...her little soldiers...are kicking Butt!
Love to Ya!

I'm praying for Peg. I think it's part of it to get weary. My best friend went through this & she got so weary, sick & weak. She's now been free of cancer for 12 yrs. It's so hard! Don't blame you for staying at that auction...what a treasure. I need furniture so bad but just hard to find right now around here. You're lucky!!!!
