New Year's Eve Auction

First let me say, Happy New Year to all of you wonderful people!

The hubby and I had a great day ending 2011!  We went to estate sales in the morning, an auction in the afternoon, and out to dinner with one of our sons and his family in the evening.  As I'm writing this post, 2012 has arrived!  We're real party animals.  Can't you tell?!  

What I want to share with you tonight are our latest auction buys.  The majority of these things are just for me to use as decor for my home.  I'm still contemplating where each item will go.  I'll have to post about that after I've found a home for everything.  Anyway, without further ado, here are our items.....

I'm pretty sure this one will go on top of my china cabinet.  I actually bought a couple for my daughters-in-law as well.

I have no idea what I'll do with this!  I just thought it was cool.  Any ideas?

I love roosters!  He'll probably go on top of the china cabinet too.

Don't know yet.  But I love them!

Possibly on top of china cabinet too.  We'll see.

This next piece is an old organ case with lots of detailed carving.  I'll be doing a makeover on this one and probably end up selling it.  I already have an idea of what I will do with it.  I think you all will like it!  I'll try to get some better pictures for the makeover post.  I was just so excited to share my auction goodies and just snapped this in the garage this evening.

Well, I do still have to get up for church in the morning this morning, so I better end here.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

I think my favorites are the fans, don't ask me why but I see them painted bright colors and each fan blade a different color- on my outside deck!
