Christmas Love A*U*C*T*I*O*N in honor of Amelia~

I am joining in with Beverly & Pink Saturday with this post! Please sure to join her here to enjoy all the other Pink posts! Merry PINK Christmas Everyone!

For posting your bid on any of the six items in this post, all you need to do is the following:
  1. Leave a comment with the name of the item, item #, the $ amount you are placing your bid for, along with your email address.
  2. You'll want to make sure you return often to review other comments/bids. If anyone has placed a bid higher on the item you'd like to have, you'll want to place another bid higher than that person to hopefully win the final bid.
  3. On December 21st, the bidding will end at Midnight EST. I'll notify the winning bids by email on December 22nd, Amelia's birthday, with next steps.
  4. There will be a very nominal shipping fee added for each item purchased. Will also ship to Canada, but the rate of the shipping may vary somewhat.
100% of the Proceedings will be going to baby Amelia ~ Please read her story below:

One year ago this month, on December 22rd, this precious little Baby in the above photo, Amelia, was born into a loving family to a Daddy named Jacob and a Mommy named Jenny in Michigan. Jacob & Jenny had been married just 18 short months when Baby Amelia arrived. After Amelia was born there were complications and Jenny, her mommy died. Hearing about this event broke my heart and I just felt I wanted to do something for little Amelia.

I asked Amelia's grandmother, Kathy, from Welcome to Mimi's Garden if I could do something to raise some money for Amelia and her Daddy Jacob earlier this year. Kathy gave me her blessing to do so. Kathy, along with her husband, has been helping her son Jacob to raise little Amelia this past year. A few days after Amelia was born and I learned about the situation, my mother had a bad stroke and much of this past year was spent in traveling to help care for her; which caused the delay in my putting this auction together.

Love Auction Items: I'm auctioning some of my very own custom handmade Tea Cozies, as well as a few other collectible/new items.

If you'd like to join my cause for Amelia, maybe you'll find something in my post today that I'm auctioning off that you'd like for yourself or as a gift to give someone else. All you need to do is review the 5 items below and follow the steps at the end of the post to place your bids. Please share this auction with all your blogging buddies - or better yet, post about it and include the hyperlink of this post so others would come and place a bid. The more that participate, hopefully the more we can raise together for Amelia. The highest bid on each item will be the winning bid to purchase it!
