Auction for Nie Nie

This post is quite a bit different than my normal, travel log of my family and mostly my kids, but it's all for a good cause! Nie Nie of Nie Nie Dialogues was in a plane crash last week. I don't know her, but as I have gotten a little into the blogger world, I have gotten to know her blog. Gabrielle, over at Design Mom started this idea to have a web auction. I wasn't going to do it (really, what would I auction???) Then I remembered that I have just won these fabulous earrings from Blue Poppy Jewelry off the very same design mom site. I could auction those off! So here it is....
The Succulent Earrings made of stunning blue-green algae set in sterling silver. Retail price: $78.00

Here's how it works:

Leave a comment by using the comment link below with your bid. Your bid must be higher than the previous bid. Make sure that you leave a way for me to get in touch with you if you are the lucky winner. The auction will end Sunday at 8:00pm eastern time. I will contact the winner Monday and the winner will need to pay via the Stephanie & Christian Paypal fund, then they send me an email copy of their receipt and I will send out the earrings! Pretty easy!

***Please note***

I won this giveaway August 13th. I have not yet received the earrings from Blue Poppy (they are custom, hand made items, I'm giving them some time!) I will send them out as soon as I get them. If the winner chooses to wait until I have the earrings in my hand to pay the paypal fund, that would be just fine.



Happy bidding!

Just wanted to let everyone know that my sister-in-law Allison is also participating in Nie Nie day and is auctioning off $500 (!!!) worth of photography stuff. If you live in or around Park City Utah, head over to her blog http://englishphoto.typepad.com/english_photography/ and bid. What she does is not just take your pictures, she creates a truely museum quality, they will stay on your walls forever becauce it is too beautiful to take down work of art. (Seriously, you could check out my walls for proof!)
