On the way into school yesterday I saw this beautiful spider's web, fortunately the spider was not around but isn't a web truly an amazing and intricate piece of work.
Last night I had a barbecue to go to at school so I was unable to go to an auction that same evening. My #1 was so sweet to go by himself and bid on a few items I was interested in. This auction is not just around the corner so he had a little ways to drive. What a good sport!
I love vintage paper and there was a lot there, but it was going for the big bucks. Here are a few pictures of some of the items he came home with.
These books are not in great shape but there's just something fun about them.
Not real sure what the goal was here, but I'm sure it was something wonderful!
This is an old wood box filled with vintage buttons.
And last but not least the box I wanted him to bid on. A box of old paper. I wasn't quite sure what was in it. I was hoping it was crepe paper but it ended up being some delicate vintage paper made in Hong Kong. There was a little crepe paper thrown in as well, still very pretty!
Finally, we celebrated Jonathan's birthday today as yesterday evening was spent with his friends. Can you see what we got him for his birthday?
This is a kid that doesn't ask for a lot of things. He has been so satisfied with his Nintendo 64 for years. We thought his 16 birthday would be a good time to get him a WII. It actually looks like a lot of fun too!
