I had so much fun yesterday at an auction out on a country estate of a well-known Colorado resident.
It was without a doubt one of the more pleasant auction -- and junking -- experiences I've had in a long time. There was so much to see that I'm going to have to take a couple of posts to show you all the photos. First, I'm going to show you the pictures I took while walking through the beautiful old, turn-of-the-century house:
Everything you see in all of the photos was for sale...
They were a ranching family on the wife's side, and merchants on the husband's side.
A view from an upstairs window out onto the "barn" where another auction was taking place simultaneously. Oh, to have been able to be in two places at once!
This little white cabinet/dresser was child-sized!
It was such a treat to walk around the home and admire just what was picked/leftover as this was the second weekend of the auction. I cannot even imagine what week 1 must have been like.
Inside the house was so crowded that we decided to spend most of our few hours at the sale in the barn.
I took a few photos to show you that, too...
I loved this old picnic basket (below) with its tin breadbox!
A Planter's Clock -- it was so cool looking!
Look at that little tower of three fabric foot stools!
I have to tell you: I left most of the wonderful stuff behind; auctions can be an all day affair and I just didn't have all day for it! But next I will show you what I did bring home -- so please check back!
