Auction for Visual Vamp

Dear Ones, I'm joining Our Dear Laura at Decor to Adore for an online Blogland auction and her very first linky party to help a fellow blogging friend ~Valorie from Visual Vamp. Her husband Alberto had a heart attack while in Canada and they need to get back home.
What a wonderful idea Laura! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help.

Valorie and Alberto are tango instructors and you can read about this incident on her blog here.


Here is my contribution ~ I am AUCTIONING this table runner ~ 80" x 20"


The table runner is made of prewashed cotton and is a wine and cream color.



I have added a little ruffle to both ends of the runner too.

Made for you with my most dainty fingers...

on my sewing machine.


Starting bid for the runner is $10.

Please increase your bids by $1.00

If you would like to bid on this item,
just leave your bid in a comment to this post and your email address.

Attention~
There has been a change in the date to end our auction. So read on in Laura's own words...


There has been such a tremendous response to the online auction for Valorie aka *VISUAL * VAMP* that I have extended the linky party to run for an additional week.

You may go to THIS POST to see all of the auction entries. Shop, bid, win!!!

Or, add your own auction donation!

You can also end a direct monetary donation to a special PAY PAL account set up for Valorie and Alberto.

So, Dear Ones, you can keep on bidding! You'll be able to place bids until 9:00pm next Sunday evening, November 14th. If you want to bid you can go to my previous post and go to town! Thank you. :)



The winning bid for the runner will be announced here on my blog Monday, November 15th.
I will then ship this item to the winner.
All monies from the winning bid will go
to helping Valorie and Alberto return home.
There is a special pay pal account set up:

    I commented on a couple of your previous posts in case you don't check back.
    Special hugs to you for being such a caring person.

  11. Sheila, you are an angel to do this, I saw this on Laura's blog too. Maybe all of us can donate a little to this cause.

    Thanks so much for the sweet comments on my window treatment. I'm pretty proud of it since I really cannot sew. You obviously CAN! xoxo

  13. Hi Sheila, Beverly and I were just checking to see who won the bid. I love the runner but my table is 9 feet long and very narrow so I didn't keep bidding. I just wanted to start the bidding. I will say I would have been thrilled to win it but I am very happy the bid went so high for the cause.

    YOU are the Sweetie my dear friend.
    Love you, Jeanne
