So this last weekend we went to a real estate auction. I have mentioned before how you can get some really great deals at auctions…but this was actually my first auction I personally bought something at! It is quite a rush, let me tell you! I came away with a few little treasures:)
The first item was these cute little antique glasses. I love the pedestal bottom with the beads..so cute! I won them for a whopping price of $2.00!!
The next item were these great old Readers Digest books. They actually have some good stories in, but I bought them for their decorating factor. Look how cute and vintage they are! How fun to stack on a bookshelf:) These were a steal at $8.00 for the box!
The next item I scored on was A NEW HOUSE!! Yep, that’s right…we bought ourselves a 100+ year old farmhouse on a beautiful little 3-acre hobby farm. The red barn and chicken coop make the scene picturesque!!
So, it’s not completely official, but with a month of intense prayer, a buyer ready to purchase our house, and the price of this house in our budget….I think the Lord made it pretty clear that this is where we are supposed to be. I know all of my decorating friends are probably dying to see the inside…and let me tell you, it’s worth the wait! (sarcasm) But it has tons of potential that we are seriously excited to reveal…and blog!! I may be taking some more breaks than usual though, since this is going to be a full time job, so please check back every once and awhile as I hope to keep you updated on the progress!
Oh, and for all of my faithful men readers…all two of you:) Or whoever you are, Ryan is most excited about 2 huge pole barns that came with the property, and wait for it….they have concrete floors!! I know, something I have always dreamed of:) I am actually really excited for Ry cause I know that outbuildings to a man are like furniture to a girl, and the fact that I will no longer have to look at the backyard full of toys that was starting to get a bit ridiculous is a plus.
So thank you to all of you that were praying for us in this decision, and we are excited to show you how the projects turn out!
