RANDOM ESTATE SALE POST
WELL, woden's day was last day of 3 day sale. considering what was left, they had nothin. any way. posh neighborhood. all woods. and english lookin. at drive. new sign for a new architect/desiger co. walk up the long drive. HUGE new pile. very french/italian mansion. slate roof, copper gutters being put on. post-history history mosh design. and to the back side, 'the small mid century designer house' that will be torn down. not moved. EVERYTHING for sale. the copper gutters being removed as i go it. not much left 1 1/2 hours to go. very pretty aspect and by what was left. OH THAT BED IS UGLY, money does NOT= taste. i was not impressed with the glorified ranch. horrid stains on the wood for the most part. i spent $4 on a medium cermic coffee fund pot, candles, kid's bank(castle for ebay or my cousin's daughters-the princesses), and a bag of craft bits. cooffee fund pot for ebay, or hoard if it doesn't sell.
chatted with the guys putting the gutters up. been working on it 2 years. hope they don't remove all the landscape.
I'M IN! HALLALUIA!
