An Auction Purchase For Altering
Earlier in the week, I visited the auction house where I used to work. It was viewing day for the forthcoming Vintage and Household auction, so while there, I had a look through the lots.
One box of various treen (woodware) caught my eye as there was a chapel collection tray/box. I wasn't able to attend the auction itself, so I left a commission/absentee bid for the lot.
Yesterday I received a call to say my bid was successful and I duly sent Hubby off to collect my goodies. The other items in the lot I am not too fussed about but I'm really happy to have this little box. I am undecided about how I am going to alter it, but in my head, I have it altered in some way and hanging on the wall with the handle above it. I'll keep you posted to what I decide to do. Sam x
