May 15th, tool auction!!

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.๐Ÿ˜Š 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.







Now wasn’t that a good auction?!๐Ÿ˜„

Have a good week friends. Deb

    A good auction and a great husband, to snag that for you! What an amazing quilt top! Will you quilt it? I love an auction, too–I only wish they happened more frequently in my neck of the woods!

      Hubby is a keeper for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚ yes, I want to hand quilt it, keeping it done the old way. Auctions are fairly easy to find around here especially farm related ones.

    Wow, it’s incredible that you got this quilt top at a tool auction. I also enjoy auctions – though I haven’t been to one in years. They don’t seem to have them around here very often any more.

      It is a shame to think of auctions becoming less of an occurrence. I’m still amazed to think of that quilt being at a tool auction.๐Ÿ˜„
