Well, really, what the husband bought at the church auction for me.

It was really nice there, sunny (rained at night! yes!) and not too hot (except in the truck driving over and back) and we got to go to the cabin and see how much work our friends have done on it (building it on their own!).

But the best thing was, the husband bought me things at the church auction! Really pretty things! And hopefully, I'll get this right so everyone can see them.

Bill and Sue's church does this auction every year, and it's amazing how much they get (mostly from the pie auction, more on that later) and this year there really wasn't that much junky stuff, a lot of furniture mostly. And some knicky-knack stuff. Which is where the story begins.

I went and looked at the couple of tables that had the better items and found a real surprise! Japanese pottery! Yes, in the middle of Iowa at a church auction, I found Japanese pottery! Two tea pots and a vase. All made in Japan, not, 'oh look, stuff that looks Japanese but it's made in the US (or China, which I find hysterical). Not sure where or who bought it to the auction, but I showed Tom all of it and made puppy-dog eyes at him and yes, he bought it for me! (Plus two candles in glass containers which I will use as Christmas presents.)

So, now I have 4 pieces of Japanese pottery. So happy!
