A few auction finds

My husband works alot of Sat. but he was off this past Sat. The weather was lovely, so we decided
to go to an estate sale. We used to go to them all the time, but rarely go anymore. I had forgotten
how much fun they are and how much fun it was to get out and enjoy a day together.
We bought a few treasures. There was several old quilts made out of
feed sack fabric, we had bidded on several of them, but unfortunately we weren't the high bidder.
But I did get an old cookbook that I have wanted for a while and old pair of glasses and some old postcards and an old razer,  a few treasures.

For the last several years I have bought a container with tulips, they grow in water, the roots are in water. I will show a photo now and then when they bloom.

  5. Hi Sweetie! Your grandson is so darn cute! I love that he even has a grass/dirt stain on his pants..that means he played hard! Yippie!
    Glad you enjoyed your day at the estate sale with your hubby! Nice finds!
    Be blessed,

  6. Aww, Jake looks tired and Bo looks a little shy, but both are adorable.
    Oh cool, a Mennonite cookbook! Wait, do they cook as well as the Amish?
    I don't have a green thumb, but I wonder if I could keep those tulips alive. I so love live flowers.

  7. Ok, so I'm so jealous of your finds ~ esp. the cookbook ~ I am a collector too! Tulips are one of my favorite flowers!!
    Adorable grandson and gorgeous doggie!!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
