Farm auctions...I love 'em.
Went with my dad and sister to a goodie this weekend. An old farmhouse, an estate auction...lots of farmers and local folks. Wagons and buildings full of "stuff." I love peeking around and imagining the memories behind all of these things. The lady of this house was a cake decorator, as evidenced by many shaped cake pans and decorating tips. She must've also had quite the homemaking skills as there were boxes and boxes of canning jars.
The things that were there had all been lovingly used and it seemed to me that this was a thrifty family that took pleasure in the simple things...lessons we could take a cue from.
A great day...thanks for waiting around for the last box of jewelry to sell, Dad!
