Hello everyone. I hope you are having great week!
I thought I would chat a while. Hubby and I went to an auction Saturday night and picked up a few items for the booth. We went to a new-to-us auction up the road from us. We were pleasantly surprised with his layout and how quickly he moved through the merchandse. He had brought a "lot" back from Pennsylvania which is why I wanted to go.
I picked up Thomas and Sarah...
In original frames and bubble glass.
Victorian needle work - this frame is in excellent shape with no chips and its original wood back,
And I fell in this, it reminds of something you would find in an old country church...
We also picked up another slaw cutter (complete), a couple of crocks and a couple of bean crocks (one McCoy and one #3 brown/tan). All will be going to the booth (except for maybe Thomas and Sarah).
This past week we sold the larger reproduction cabinet (YAH!). I have another smaller cabinet that I will be taking down Friday. I will be re-arranging again and making room for other things. I also picked up a couple of nice older wood bowls to take to the booth as well, one is a fairly large Munsing bowl.
And it is time to work in the garden. Saturday is yard day for me (that's my plan anyway). I am digging up everything (EVERYTHING) in the front two beds, tilling, and then re-designing the garden, simple and clean. I have it in my head, but still need to go to the garden supply to see what is coming in now and what will be good to plant now. I am looking for nice shrubbery, and something that is blooming. I had a fella in a few weeks ago that suggested I go with the bigger pots, not the dinky one-gallon size plants, so the garden fills in quicker. So basically I am looking for a couple of tall plants for the corners of the porch, and smaller/shorter/dwarf plans for the front of the porch - maybe boxwoods, maybe azaleas, etc., etc. I have an old wheelbarrow in the back I might use as a planter. And I am looking for a concrete sheep statuary to put in the garden as well, at a REASONABLE price. Well, we will see. I have to buy the plants and mulch first, then "decorate".
Well, there you have it, for now.....
I hope you have a great weekend!
