What a lovely beginning to Spring! This morning I talked my dear sweet hubby into taking me to an auction on the other side of town. I really wasn't looking to buy much. I was more interested in getting out of the house. I also wanted to visit this auction to see how they operated and what prices were like. I only had pocket money, so no harm could be done. No chance of me going crazy over a piece of furniture or anything like that. I did fall for this tattered and water stained hat box. It is cover in the most wonderful vintage wall paper. It didn't hurt that it was overflowing with an array of vintage hats! Dear hubby also spotted a vintage trouble light for my studio and the auctioneer was so kind as to add it to the lot of hats....double bonus. Because it was late and only a handful of bidders left, they also threw in a lot of mismatched dishes...my winning bid was a whopping $ 13.00. Great way for a gal to start off her Spring season!
I hope that you found yourself out greeting Spring in the most wonderful of ways!
