Item No.5 & 6 & 7~ Holly Doodles!

Auction is getting HOT!
Holly from HollyDoodles is an amazing paper crafter........she was one of my first features here at TCB. Her kitchen caught my attention right away and I have never forgotten it. She is also getting ready to teach some classes. You must visit her site.........after you bid of course.

This sad story about Stephanie and Christian grabbed Holly's heart and she jumped right in to help. She wrote a beautiful post.........much better than my ramblings.
I am so excited to offer you these beautiful items. There are 3 different items up for bid. Thank you so much Holly.

Holly #1/ blue & brown photo board - Starting bid $25

The first is a large, 2 picture photo board. It's made from an old game board and is collaged with vintage wallpaper in shades of cream, brown, and blue. Starting bid $25.

Holly #2 / pink photo board- Starting Bid $25

Here are Holly's words about the piece.

"The second is especially endearing to me. I LOVE this one and really wanted to keep it, but today I felt led to donate it also. It's called "apron strings" and is another photoboard. Since apron strings are always associated with motherhood, I thought this was perfect for an auction for such a loving mother. There are actually two ties from an apron snipped off and used as embellishment. The only thing to mention is that the flower on the very bottom will be slightly different than shown. Everything else is exactly as pictured."

Holly #3 / Pink earrings - Starting bid $20

Made with vintage swarovski drops. They are wire-wrapped to a tiny little rhinestone disco ball with oxidized sterling silver wire and hang from oxidized sterling silver ear wires.

There are 3 separate items to bid on for this post. Please stipulate which item you are bidding one. #1,2, or 3.
