The auctions have been WAY too good to me lately.
I managed to completely fill my husband's pickup truck again yesterday.
Probably not the best idea, since it looks like we'll be closing on
our new house in the next week,
but when my husband suggested we go to an auction Sunday afternoon,
first I was stunned, then I was elated.
I could have easily stayed another hour
beautiful, old chair for 1 buck,
which I'm hoping to reupholster.
My grandfather was an upholsterer by trade,
so it will thrill me to pieces if I accomplish it.
And for 1 buck - it's worth the experiment.
Here's some more of my favorites I brought home.
Vintage Barn Light - LOVE it!
I'd be tempted to keep this one,
but we already have one.
Chippy, Old Farmhouse Stool
Oodles of Telephone Insulators (this is only 1/2 of them).
A Super Cool Antique "Security Account Register".
Brought home more lovely enamelware - can't seem to leave an auction with some!
I also got a whole box full of antique spice and apothecary boxes with herbs in them.
Just a few of them are in the photo below.
The really cool thing is that 3 of these boxes came from the pharmacy
in my hometown where I grew up (Washington, IL)!
There is so much more, but I haven't had time to take photos of the rest.
So...my house that got all cleaned up for our inlaws visit,
is a mess again...but it's a blissful kind of mess for me.
Hope your day is full of good pickins'!
