Today At The Auction


Another fun day working at the auction!
It was a rather quiet, subdued crowd.
 Maybe it was the cold damp weather. :)
As always, it was fun to see what was there and
 to do a little people watching.



There wasn't a lot of trash left to go through!
  The only thing I found was an ancient Webster's Dictionary.
But this little vintage concrete rabbit caught my eye during the bidding!
He's about 12" tall, and obviously has been out in the garden.
He has some mud on his feet and moss on his back. :)
I think I'll give him a bath in the kitchen sink and let him
stay inside.  He would be adorable as a door stop or
even sitting on my desk.  And I think he might end up with
a little Christmas wreath around his sweet little neck!
I thought he was well worth the $4 I paid for him.

  4. That rabbit is cool looking
    Beats that rooster you had before that was too tacky for even cooking haha
    Although you does need a clean
    Sure you can easily take care of that at your scene

    3. If that rooster wasn't so large
      I'd send him to you on a barge.

  7. I think you're right, he will be a handsome addition inside or out and you don't have to feed this critter!

  9. I can see him as a door stop or on your desk. I love when you can put a little splash of Christmas, Fall, Easter and change the mood of a simple piece like Mr. Bunny.

  13. Oh the jar looks like a piece of "Depression Glass". I really do like depression glass. And Mr. Bunny looks so nice. I agree that he would make a great door stopper. Hope you will share a pic of him all spiffied up. Although I was wondering what the outdoor cats would think about him. LOL

    God bless.

    1. It is depression glass! A cookie jar. I have a pink one just like that but it doesn't have a lid. I really should search online for a lid for it! He's all spiffed....I'll post pics. :)

  14. I've gone backward on your posts to catch up...what fun...snow! I miss Ohio's weather this time of year. It was always a good day to bake and snuggle in with a good book. I'm glad to read the boys are keeping life exciting for you. The bunny is adorable and you are so right...a Christmas wreath will be the perfect touch.
