Wish Us Luck - It's Auction Day!

Sadly, it looks like it will be a sunny,
lovely day here in northern New Jersey.

Because Howard and I are heading out
to an auction at a gentleman's farm,
and good weather brings out too many people.
Too much competition in the bidding.
Isn't that awful of me to think that?
Eh, it's true.  I'm kind of dreadful.
Now, as soon as I do a short rain dance,
it's into Maxine the Minivan with our bagels and coffee,
and we're off to raise our paddles high.
Have a marvelous Saturday.  Let me know
if you score at an auction or a yard sale.
Happy Hunting!  -- Cass

  1. That chest with all those drawers looks interesting. Hope y'all scored big at the sale. Dreary and light rain here so I am in for the day.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Cass, I am an estate sale kind of gal. Guess I just don't have the patience for auctions. I sure hope you got every item you wanted and there was no one there to outbid you!

  3. Wow, there are some really gorgeous antiques there! I hope you found something.
