sold!

An evening at the auction listening to the hum of the auctioneer soothes my soul. Some snippets & details from Friday night.







This went home with me. I have a fascination with old German samplers. This one, loosely translated reads: Have your desires in the Lord and He will give you the wishes of your heart. Love that!

Those pictures look so neat! I love the faded green - is that a drawer pull?

Hi Laurie,
Yep, that's a drawer pull (and although it looks a different color, it's from the same cabinet as the decorative carved wood. The colors were so pretty!)

Great stuff here! Do you speak German? My husband's German so German is one of the languages that our kids speak.
