Pictures from the auction :)

Hi there friends! I just wanted to share some photos 
with you today on this wonderful Monday morning!

Here's a few pictures from the auction, that I snapped.
 I loved these metal baskets, I didn't end up getting one this time though. Just thought 
this was a pretty picture, with the colored drift wood.

This "Ideal" did come home with me!
 I was soo excited when I seen this old wash tub. I actually just had caught it at the very 
last minute when they were auctioning it off too! They were holding it up in the air and from across the way we seen it and went flying over in that direction. I've been wanting one to put outside and plant flowers in, but I was thinking it would be pretty cool inside too. It's nice that it even came with the lid, so I could use it as a table and store quilts and blankets in it? :) :) 

 This was such a cool and neat little store we 
went to after the auction was over. Thought this 
fireplace mantel was cute.
Pretties :) 

Oh yes! My cart! ....I've been wanting one for a while, to use as a coffee table in our new room we just redid.(Which I've been meaning to post some before and afters on....maybe we'll get to that by the end of this week! lol.)  I plan on lightly sanding it down and cleaning it up a bit. :) 

 Thought this was too cute!! 
I was thinking of all you lovelys that have made all those beautiful tags out of vintage book pages. 

Some of our pile ....lol

 Then I also got some drawers from an old sewing machine thought they would be great to stash some fabrics, buttons, or lace in :) :) I put them up on the railing to dry after washing them out.

It's always so much fun going to the auction with my parents and husband.
 My mom and dad love it, and love antiques, I think if they could they might go every week! haha.

Hope you have a happy Monday!
8 years and 2 months today my hubby and I have been together! :) 
I can't believe it's already August! I do love this month though, normally really nice weather, a good nice month before fall hits, and my bday is this month too! :) Yay!
