Auction bargains and QMC

So what an awesome weekend. We went to the horse auction on Saturday as is our usual jaunt. And then on the way home because we weren't beat I said hmmm wanna do dinner? So we did and on the way we could some of our closest friends to see if they would like to watch Dalen for a few hours. (Their daughter is very close in age to my little ones and he lovesssss to go there.) So we had dinner at a little traildust town here in Tucson and then took him to our friends and then what did we do?? We went dust and all from the auction to kick up our boots and get a few dances in. A total impromptu evening. No one we know was out yet and the bar was very quiet. So we got to play some pool. I am horrrid at it and my focus in pool is to try to screw my hubby up by leaning over the pool table or asking him a question which is innocent, but could be filled with innuendo just as he hits the ball or bumping him as I walk by. Unfortunately, I am still not a great pool player, but it lends itself to great flirting and fun. We got in quite a few dances as well. We made it to 9 pm I was soooo proud of us. Used to be we went out at 9 pm. Now we head home to get the kiddo at 9 pm. And I gotta say I love it. It was like we were in our own world. We waltzed, two stepped and played pool, Was a wonderful time we got to hang out together and be silly and dance and remember why we like to be in eachothers arms.

So many times folks email and want to know what we got at the auction. I usually say hmm horse junk. This time we got a few other things that I really like. First is this little table which fits in our corner of the house well and I got rid of another one that was falling apart. (I am not a purchase furniture that is new all at once to match person. I like different eclectic with a general theme and color. So I buy them from antique shops, auctions, walmart .. anywhere. I am not to particular just looking for something that strikes my fancy. And those two mismatched chair and couch are on their way out. I just haven't found the perfect replacement yet. It is a small room so they need to be not to much, but just enough.) So anyways here is the little table and it has a fliptop that opens.

And this is my hubby's purchase. It is some bookends that have these huge rowels on them. I put them up on this shelf so they don't poke anyone, but I think they are a start of his collection for the office we are working on.
