Huge thunder storm happening so I may get zapped mid-post...
Lou's up on a ladder installing the last of our family room lights we bought last month. but the excitement was yesterday, when we attended our first auction (and bid)!
It was advertised in the paper - a builder model home auction. I know from Lou's days at Mattamy Homes, that they were a good thing (although we just shopped the model homes, instead of going to an auction). We got a honking great chandelier (probably too big for our house, but honkingly beautiful, just the same), a few Group of Seven prints, framed, a couple blue & white large china eggs on a stand (I know, but they look perfect on my mantle) and a set of very Napoleanesc-looking black, large candlesticks and (best of all) a sofa bed for the basement - EVERYTHING NEW!!!!
