Didn't get to go to an auction today.  Major bummer!  Here is a picture of what I missed.  Don't you just love it!

Butterfly and Roses

Here are a few pictures I took yesterday.

This butterfly must have been a starvin' Marvin! He was fluttering all around our butterfly bushes and I was grateful he stopped long enough for me to get this shot.
...and this shot
I also took these of one of our rose bushes. Not the best pictures but wanted to share a couple.

 The auction I went to this weekend was at an old victorian house.  I thought it was beautiful!  There was so much vintage goodness and antique amazingness!  I wish our budget could have withstood some major spending but alas it’s just not meant to be.  I am very happy with the vintage greeting cards I bought, though!

Go here if you want to see a little of what I am talking about:
(Don’t know how long that will be there to see)

So during the auction we were informed that the most valuable lithograph to be auctioned off had been stolen.  Can you believe it?!  Someone walked into the house and just picked it up and walked out!  How awful.  How can a person look at themselves in the mirror after doing something like that?


I will be sharing pictures soon of the greeting cards, takes a bit of time to scan them.  I have scanned some of the Christmas cards and will be sharing a few on my Christmas blog over the next couple of days.  Check them out when you have a chance.

I went ahead and scanned a couple.   Here ya go...
The inside...
Hope you liked my little teasers! :o)

Yay, an auction!

Saturday was such a nice day to go to an auction! It was cloudy but didn't rain. It was around 70 degrees, perfect!
Here are a couple pictures to tide you over until I get some scanning done. These two lots went for more than I could pay, $19 a piece to the same bidder!

The first is a small box of old postcards.
The last picture is a box of vintage greeting cards that I wanted so baaaadddd! (It's OK I am happy with what I got, that you will have to be patient to see!)
I just needed to share these pictures! I haven't been to an auction in months, I was starting to have withdrawals! I shared some of the Christmas cards I got from this auction on my Christmas blog. Cheryl's Christmas Chattels
