Flower Auction Sunday!



So, my weekend begins on Sunday evening. I have Mondays off and Tuesday is 'by chance.' Rather than take all those lovely flowers left over in the fridge home with me, why not sell them off at a Coriander Girl auction!? Why not invite a friend to play her accordion? Why not have a laugh with the lovely neighborhood folk? So, that's exactly what I did.
It was an amazing event and I think people walked away with some pretty great deals.





I'll try doing it every couple of weeks or so, depending on what's left in the fridge. I'll send an auction blast off on that Sunday morning if it's going to happen.


Kelsey Mcnulty and her friend Graham brought Parisian flair to the auction. A million times thank you!
