The one that got away

Happy Monday girly girls...
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Hubby and I went to an amish auction on saturday!
Oh what fun!

I am kicking myself though!
Do you see the oak dresser in these 2 pictures....
Isn't it beautiful?
It sold for $130.00
Why oh why didn't I jump in on the bidding?

Oh there was an antique oak library table that sold for $25.oo...
I wish I had a place to put it...It was beautiful!
Are you wondering what I did get at the auction?
Just a box of misc. dishes!
I know like I needed more dishes! :-)
The one that got away!
Sorry I didn't get any other pictures!
I was busy visiting and gabbing!

No this is not a grainy - bad picture!
This is how hard it hailed on sunday!
It came down so hard and so fast that it looked like miniature snow balls!
let's not talk about snow just yet!

I am getting ready to re-decorate our frontroom!
Come by tomorrow and I will give you a sneak peek!
