Victoria Va Day Trip

 I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Yesterday we started out about 7:00 AM and headed to Victoria Va to visit an estate auction. I haven't been to a really good auction in quite a while and we surely had a wonderful time. I didn't take my camera but I wish I had; the drive was so beautiful. Winding country roads and rolling hills; peaceful small towns and the most beautiful old farm and plantation houses; not to mention the stately Victorian homes; I fell in love with them all.
 A while back I mentioned the January white sales; well I purchased the most enchanting linens from this sale. I haven't even had time to go through all of the boxes but I can tell you that there are some exquisite treasures here. Above I'm showing just a tiny sample.  The pictures didn't come out well, I just couldn't get the right lighting but you will be seeing more of these lovelies in my Etsy shop soon.  
 And you know there is always that very special thing that you've been looking for and it was there waiting for me. You can't see it very well in this picture but I'll be posting again soon with some better pictures. It's a primitive drop leaf table. The drop sides are one 14 1/2 inch board. It has the most beautiful patina and the turned legs are just beautiful. I've seen them called plantation tables but I really am not sure if that is correct. I am sure that it dates to the early to mid 1800's. I can't wait to get better pictures for you.  
Well tomorrow is Monday and it's back to the office. I hope everyone has a great week, Winter blew in here yesterday while we were in Victoria and while we didn't get snow we really got the cold temps. That's OK spring will be here soon.

Bright Blessings,
Sallie
