Raising your hand


Look what I got at auction! Times two! I bid furiously and won! I've only ever gone to one other auction before. I get so excited. I love seeing what all the items go for. I had to dash in and out a few times to settle/ feed the boys ... but I got them. Now I can't wait for Summer and all our planned renos/ tidy ups ... I am going to be lounging on our deck, the one on the jobs list ... soon to be constructed from recycled brick pallets. I will languish in this chair with a cocktail in hand ... care to join me in the other one?

All I can say. lady, is you're lucky I wasn't there. I would have been excited, bidding furiously AND I WOULDN'T HAVE HAD TWINS TO SETTLE.

(Fab find!)

love a good auction too! were you at Tulloch's?

nice chairs too, yes they will be perfect for cocktails and summer and will go very well with a pallet deck.

Wow. I've got my eye on a blue and white one at Salvage Centre.

It goes without saying that I'll sit on the other one. G & T would be good.
