A cold, snowy day......
Went to an auction with sister, Judy, on Tuesday and found a few things. Seems it's been so long since we've gone to an auction where we could afford to buy. When we first went in, I spied this little chest & told Judy that if I had to cash in an IRA, I was getting that chest. Seldom do I find something that I really love but I love this. Good news, my IRA is still intact & got to bring the chest home with me.
They had many really nice prints and oil paintings. I spotted this one because it had g'daughter, Stella's, name on it and she loves horses. It will stay with me until she's older and, hopefully, will want it. I can sometimes find "Allinson" cutting boards that I collect for my Allison and sometimes you see "sage" things but haven't found anything with "Phoebe" on it. For son-in-law, John, I've collected old corkscrews. He has quite a collection. Poor Phoebe.....I'll figure out something.
Well, if I'm to be at all productive today, I'd better get busy.
