13 years and counting

Monday was our 13th wedding anniversary, and we celebrated in a way that couldn't have been more perfect! (Well, okay, a cruise might have been a little better, but I'll take what I can get!)

Roger and I dropped the kids off at Grandma and Poppy's house and drove up to McPherson for an auction! Talk about romance!! We even had hotdogs, chips, brownies and soda all for $5. And, we came home with a van load of treasures.

Ceramic poodle! Seriously, can you have a mid-century modern house without a poodle?

Nice large milk glass basket

Cute little Tom Thumb typewriter! It's nice and light weight. It took my 8 year old son to help me find the numbers on this thing, though!

And, the best find of all (in my opinion!) They were auctioning stuff off outside and inside at the same time. Roger went out side and bought this as a surprise for me! I've been wanting one. Granted, I was hoping for red or maybe yellow, but I'll certainly take avocado!

This is, by no means, everything we bought! Roger also bought (another) trunk and a couple of pictures. I got a set of three Fire King white swirl mixing bowls and a Hamilton Beach mixer with a couple of Pyrex mixing bowls.

Not a bad way to spend an anniversary!

Ok, Fire King, milk glass, and the ladder/stool thingy = BEST DAY EVER! Love your purchases!
