Treasure hunting looked pretty bad this week-end. I didn't find anyplace I wanted to go on Friday. Saturday went about the same way. My #1 and I did make a stop to a favorite stomping ground though and found a chandelier and three wonderful old pillars, I was pretty excited.
I hope you can see it through all the "stuff" behind it!
Sunday after church we decided to hit a sale that was 50% off. I didn't expect much but was wonderfully surprised with the things I found. I'll try and take some pictures of those items this week. They're still all wrapped up.
After that we headed to an auction down the street. It was an on-site auction, which is always fun. But, boy, was it hot. This was a car parts auction but you never know!
This is what the auction looked like, not too appealing.
Now don't drool, but I came away with old hand written books from the early 1800's. The writing in them is so beautiful. I can't believe the time it must have taken to write this way, what an art! They seem to be the schoolwork of a young lady. One book is where she practised her handwriting and another is notes from a basic accounting class. Many of the pages are signed with her name and a date. They are very beautiful and special.
I have to say I was pretty tired when I got home. We stayed there about 5 hours waiting through boxes and boxes of car items before the items I was interested in came up for bid.
Overall a pretty good day!
I wanted to do an update also on my mom. Her MRI came out good, I was so glad! And guess what, little by little her hearing is coming back. God does answer prayer!
