My New Find

My DH is an auctioneer, Hoffman Auction Service this past week we had a two day auction, Thursday evening was the household items. And, Saturday was the shop equipment.  I snapped this picture to share.DSC07494

I have never seen a corner wicker chair. It was in very nice condition. The lucky high bidder took the chair home for $175.00.






Here is my purchase for the evening. I’m sure at one time there was a bottom half to it, but I love this early cupboard just the way it is.  I can’t wait to get it cleaned and put in my house. I will snap a couple pictures when I have it  finished.   DSC07490                                                                                                                                                                   

It’s black with an old red paint on the inside.  Perfect for where I want to set it!!


I wish I would have taken more pictures of other items. I will do better at the next auction…

Have a great week,

New Beginnings

My daughter started her first year of college this Fall. It has been a "big" adjustment for us at home, as well as being an adjustment for her too. It helps seeing pictures of her having fun and making new friends. She and her roommate were having a good time playing mud volleyball!!

I know she is spending equal time studying too!! Smiles
Enjoy your day,

Newest Cross Stitch Chart

Here is my newest cross stitch chart, "Give Thanks."

This sweet pinkeep features a pilgrim, pumpkins, two crows, the year 1832, and the words "Give Thanks". A wonderful pinkeep to stitch and display in you home for the holiday season. Pinkeep will measure 4 3/4" wide x 3 1/4" tall when completed.

I love how my primitive pilgrim turned out! If you are interested in the pattern you can find it in my Etsy shop or on Pattern Mart. Just use the link to the left.

Enjoy the new week!
