Come See What The Vultures Were Picking At

When I finally got over to the new house during the auction Saturday this is what it looked like over the hill. Wow! This doesn't even include the cars I could see from my front porch in the post "It Begins."


I thought this would be good memories for the scrapbook! **See the building in the back on the right side...stay tuned for more on our creepy neighbors later...


They had items EVERYWHERE and the auctioneer and crowd just went from place to place. This is the porch that faces the pond. It held Glen and Maguy's dining room furniture. Very interesting pieces that sold for only $325! Thats my SIL and niece and nephew. You should have seen the sun burn SIL got! Ouch!


All this furniture out on the lawn looked so funny. No wonder people come in to these things with trailers to haul out stuff. They got some great deals! It all still feels like vultures circling to me though.


Here's the group at the back of the house too. See the Amish ladies in the bottom right corner!

What a crazy weekend it was! I have already started cleaning out drawers and have a lot of purging to do for the big community yard sale in two weeks! I am hoping my mom gets the urge to come out for a few days!


I am going to take this week to show you some of the house. You know on all my adventures I love to take my bloggy friends along for the ride!


Happy Monday!

I went back to A Dream. That's a lot better situation than I imagined. I thought it was a farm in your family that was being auctioned off due to bad circumstances. Though it's sad that those people are gone, I'm sure they're glad you got the place. It is soooo beautiful. I love, love, love the setting. Happy days! Yes, pictures are in order for sure.

You know I am so happy for you and your family! I sure hope you get some help from someone! I wish we lived a little closer I would be right there with a Diet coke and some brownies and my truck!

That is crazy! And the house looks beautiful. I'm excited to see inside.

At first I thought they were all there just to bid on the house. Now it makes more sense. I love a good sale, even though it is sad that those people are gone. Like Jo, I'm sure they are glad you ended up with the house. I can't wait to see more pics.

That looks like some cool stuff that was being sold. And I too thought that all the cars were for the sale of the house, I didn't realize all the furniture had to be taken care of too!

That's a lot of cars.
Did you buy any furniture?

I am so excited for you andc your family. What a dream come true!

Can't wait to see what you do.

What an amazing setting.

We did not buy any furniture. We did buy the refrigerator, professional stove, and wood burning stove.
