And, of course, since it's Derby weekend in Kentucky must share this great horse head lamp post along the front sidewalk:
Hays and Associates Auctions . Scroll down the page to "Antique Auction" and click on the Tuesday, May 15 date to see everything. In addition, our friend had a fabulous collection of fine and costume jewelry--gold, sterling silver,vintage pieces, and a collection of over 500(yes!)butterfly pins. We've set up a shutterfly account so you can zip though almost a 100 jewelry photos in no time. From the shutterfly homepage just click on the 3 categories: Butterfly Pins, Horses, and Fine/Vintage Jewelry. If you enjoy jewelry it will be a treat to just see all the unusual pieces she has. Go here for the tour: Lydia Wells Jewelry . Finally, you don't have to be present to bid--just contact the auction company if you need a sugar chest or a butterfly pin! Lydia Wells selected three charities to receive proceeds from this estate auction: Best Friends Animal Society, Habitat for Humanity, and The Nature Conservancy. So you can see why we hope to do well with this auction. Now for some straightforward fence stories be sure to check out all the Friday Fence players at Janis' link .
(Note: I'm having trouble with new Blogger post formatting. Tonight couldn't get some photos to upload. If you like antiques and jewelry, be sure to take a quick tour of the auction and shutterfly links.)
