here's another long-ish post that may require a cup of tea and a cookie...
last friday (to kick off our date night)
keegan and i went to the kutztown auction of old pa dutch art and books.
it was amazing!
here are the photos from some of my favorite parts –
(the whole auctioneer family was awesome. the auctioneer himself had a great roll and referred to his wife as the computer (*computa* in his dutchy accent) as she hand wrote all the bids and recorded all the sales and payments. the kids held the items and delivered them to the buyers.)
i love people watching.
amazing! i love everything about this.
this group of hand painted studies above was the only thing i really wanted. unfortunately, we didn't have time to wait until it was up for bid...
one room school house chalkboard notebook.
i love imagining a bunch of little people learning to write their letters on this...
not too sure exactly what this was about – but very interesting for sure.
(see the guy looking in the keyhole? bizarre.)
well, that about sums it all up.
great time with the pa dutch. as always.
