We spent about four hours at this auction and managed to find a few treasures. My friend and I have been doing auctions for about ten years or more. It is always a good time and lots of great conversation on the trip there and back.
On Thurday the day after the auction we made another road trip to the east side of the state were my friend purchased a large lot of art glass windows from an individual that salvages architectural items out of Detroit. This was a connection I made years ago when I had my own store. We managed to bring back a very large collection of windows and some doors. All of the wonderful windows in the above photos and more can now be seen at Bluedoor here in Grand Rapids.
The rest of the week was spent trying to get work done in the shop. I always have plenty to do in my shop so it is always hard to balance the time I need to work on projects in the shop and time spent finding great product. I do go to bed every night with my mind whirling with ideas and tomorrow projects.
Cj spent the week working on lots of design work and teaching classes. However, tonight we took off and went for a walk in our neighborhood. The temperature has been so warm that we are completely enjoying the flowering and budding of spring at least a month earlier than normal. Life is good!
