~Raise you hand if you love auctions~

Hello friends and happy Sunday!

So tell me...
Do you love auctions?
Have you ever been?
I went to one on Saturday
and came home a very happy gal
Look who I get to introduce to my friend 

Lovely..Lovely vintage dresser and mirror

Fabulous spindle back bench

I am so excited!!
Was awake half the night thinking 
about colors and color mixes.
Annie Sloan chalk paint does that to a person
Like I said before....
it's an addiction!

You Rock!

Until next time...be kind and stay creative.

Oooh, I do love that bench! It just needs a few nice comfy cushions - and Annie of course!

No Janet, I've never been to an auction. It sounds so fun, though a little frightening too! I wouldn't know how to bid or what to bid. You look like you got some great items! Congratulations!

Lady Courtney said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE AUCTIONS!!! Cannot wait to see what you do to these treasures!!! :)

Lovely pieces. I can't wait to see what you do with them.

Looks like there were some wonderful pieces at the auction Janet.....love that spindle back bench.

I can imagine the ideas were whirling around preventing you from sleeping.

Love Auctions, gets the heart beating a little faster with the excitement of purchasing treasures.
Have been to a few poultry auctions in my time, but no ASCP needed for those purchases they're already beautiful, hehe.....

Look forward to seeing the makeovers.

Janet, it sounds like you and I should hold a workshop to give these folks some auction lessons. It was uber-great to hang out with you (and Donna) yesterday, and we all came away with some great stuff. I do love me a good auction, and Shumate's Auctions are wonderful ... Kathy is such a a sweetheart.

Now that you've shown everyone yours, I guess it's my turn to show mine ... that didn't come out right ... you know what I mean. :)

Loving the bench.

Janet...Thanks for the kind words, I knew some of those pieces were just right for you.

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

Oh, the bench...be still my heart!!

Erin said...

What wonderful finds--I can completely understand your excitement! Whenever I'm in a furniture-painting mood, I definitely hit the auctions first. AuctionZip.com is fantastic for previewing auctions and I've gotten some great deals on really nice furniture. Plus, I gotta admit, I love the thrill of bidding! :)

Never been to an auction. Would love to go. But, I'm swooning over the bench. I've been hunting one, but have not had any luck. Anyhoo, hope you have a great evening. And, yes, I'm a month behind in my blog reading. lol. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
