Busy Bee Fairy ~ Please !!!!

~~~
I have been quite busy over the last week or so, helping a local Auctioneer get ready for a huge Auction on Saturday September 20th. There will be antiques from over 80 Estates. It really is an amazing sale and I hope to win many lots of linens, lace and vintage clothing.

It is fun to help out with the set-up for such a large auction. I have enjoyed the week long preview of all the treasures! I will also have more spending money on auction day, LOL. "In one hand and out the other" as the saying goes!

I do, however, think I need a Busy Bee Fairy to help me out with the boring everyday tasks at home (that seem to be piling up). Wouldn't that be nice? I an hoping this little gal will help me out, but she just smiles and laughs.

I will be at the Auction House most of Friday, helping to catalogue approximately 700 lots for the early start at 8:30 am on Saturday morning. I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow. The Auction is going to held at a beautiful Heritage Home in Ottawa, Ontario.

~~~no Friday Flea Market for me this week ~~~~~~
