There is one thing I love to do that my hubby finds amusing. I love an auction. I love sitting there listening to the auctioneer chanting the price,the helpers with their yep,watching the bidders as the price goes higher.i don’t need to buy a thing, I don’t go to bid or buy. Although I had been caught up in the excitement of bidding on something I really wanted. It doesn’t matter if it is a farm auction ,estate, or tool . I’m always ready for an auction.
So when hubby said there was an auction down town that had some tools that he could use,he looks my way with a grin ..didn’t say a word. My reply ..yep I’ll go!
It was a wonderful evening not hot nor cold,no bugs or skeeters to pester a body, the people pleasant with auction anticipation written on their faces. I had a good feeling this was going to be a good auction.
I picked my seat so I can watch the crowd after I walk around to view the tools with hubby.he doesn’t care where we sit as long as there is some air flow.😊 I was getting caught up in the auction when my phone went off.. Oh bother ,was my thought . It was my Mom ,couldn’t push the ignore button on her..so I worked my way out as to see how she was . We had a lovely chat.
Back to working my way to my seat, when I noticed Hubby had this excited pleased look on his face. When arriving at my seat I grinned with” what have you been up to?” The lady in front of me turned around with a big smile watching us when hubby pulled a quilt top out of an old bowl. Imagine that.. I was shocked! A lovely vintage hand sewn quilt top at that, in wonderful shape at a tool auction. Now I will quit yackin and show you some pictures.
Have a good week friends. Deb
