PPF Charity Auction: "Two Hearts" . . ."

AUCTION ITEM
"Two Hearts"
12 x 12 Hand Painted Decorative Pillow 
featuring Swarovski Crystals


I'm honored to be participating in the Paint Party Friday Action Blog Hop to benefit The Sandy Hook Elementary School. It's the beautiful brainchild of hosts Eva & Kristin as they celebrate PPF's third birthday by continuing to give to others . . . 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

There will be several items up for auction beginning this Friday, March 15th (EST). In order to view all the artwork available, simply visit the Paint Party Friday website. Every item up for sale (all proceeds will go directly to charity) will be linked to the individual artist who will be accepting bids for their item(s) on their individual websites. 

WHAT I HAVE UP FOR GRABS:

I'm proud to participate by offering the following hand painted decorative pillow entitled "Two Hearts:"

12 x 12 hand painted canvas pillow

WANNA KNOW MORE ABOUT IT?

"Two Hearts" is a one-of-a-kind 12 x 12 decorative pillow created in the Twinkle, Twinkle studio. It was hand drawn in pencil before being painted with a combination of bold colors in both matte and metallic acrylic paints and glittery pens (she really sparkles in person ;). It comes complete with a "Decorator's Choice" poly-fil form (in a firm texture) so she's ready to go when you are. 

Swarovski Crystal speciality button

And the best part? The handmade fabric flower in her hair is accented with a gorgeous Swarovski Crystal button for the utmost in elegance, sparkle and shine.



"Two Hearts:" For the one girl who has yours . . . 

FABULOUS! HOW DO I BUY THIS (FOR CHARITY)?

Thank you for asking. I will be accepting bids here - in the comments section below - throughout the weekend. The Auction for this item will close Sunday at noon, Pacific Standard Time (PST). The bidding will start at ten dollars ($10) and may increase in increments of one dollar ($1) per bid. That means, if you really want it, please keep returning to increase your bid in the comment section. The last bid at the close of the auction will be the winner!

THEN WHAT?

I will contact the winner shortly thereafter with the final amount they will be donating to charity. The funds may be sent here, which a direct link to the Newtown Memorial Fund to benefit those affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. Once proof of your donation is sent, I will ship the pillow at my expense. Domestic and International bids are happily accepted.

That's it! I hope you have fun hopping and shopping. I know I for one can't wait . . .
