A bit of a bug has gotten me behind this week so I haven’t shared for a bit. I actually had no voice for a few days and now I am just a little squeaky. Since I do tend to be a bit of Chatty Kathy, I am sure some people may have enjoyed the silence.
I promised to share my auction finds, but really there are so many, I will do it in two postings.
I don’t know if it is just this year, or if it is always this way, but there are a ton of auctions this month. There is also very high attendance, so things got a little competitive at times. Starting with this find…
I really had no intention of not getting these but I really wasn’t sure how far I was willing to go. In the end, it didn’t go too far, and I came home with these, minus one skeleton key. There was a young boy who wanted them so bad because he was sure that it would open a treasure chest, so I gave him one.
This bin was full of all kinds of keys and I am looking forward to what projects I am going to do with them.
These were tough to photograph, but they are a portfolio of a furniture designer from the 30’s. It is a mixture of ornate drawings of specific styles and technical drawings of all different types of joints.
They had me at hello.
I also picked up two small tables, the first being a Hepplewhite style, a piano stool and some children’s books.
Two chairs. Unfortunately, I did not catch how broken one of them was. I will try to fix it, if not, I will use the parts for another project. The hazards of auction buying. I am a sucker for embroidery.
Tomorrow I will share some more of the items I also bought. There are two more auctions this week I am planning on attending as well.
Are some of you wondering if I am just a hoarder or do I have a plan for all of this stuff? Stay tuned…
