So here we go - I'm launching the auction to cover Pesto's dental surgery. Pesto has had a great recovery and I asked him today if he would mind posing for all his lovely friends in the bloggersphere and for those lovely people who donated already (thank you SO much!), and he didn't mind at all. He is happy to show the world a face much less riddled with pain (I love the soft look in his face in this second image in particular) and he is proud to show that he still has some facial pride - the vet kept his canine teeth intact! I just love what this investment has done for Pesto's life quality - he is eating without pain already and today he even did some happy little wiggles in the sun. I've rarely seen him do that.
Ok then - and now to the practical side of this auction. For the sake of keeping it simple I will be posting all items on this blog. Each item will be posted as an individual post and you can then place your bid in the comment box. Please remember to leave a way for me to contact you - either by mail or your blog URL. For this first round (I will do more with handbags) I will auction off a series of small purses - all handmade by me.
This auction will close already Sunday May 6th at midnight Pacific time, so please don't hesitate to place your bids. ALL OFFERS ACCEPTED! I will post all the winning bids Monday May 7th and I will then ask you to donate your winning bid via the Paypal button + $5 flat rate postage for the US and Canada and $4 for Europe (and $5 any other countries). For two items shipped together please add $2 for US and Canada and $1 for Europe ($2 for any other countries).
Please be patient whilst I get all items listed but otherwise thanks for participating and please feel free to spread the word!
And to Marg - thanks a million for being such a terrific friend in purpose.
P.s. The total cost of Pesto's dental surgery is approx. $220. So far approx $130 has been raised and anything exceeding this amount will instantly be used on spaying young female dumpster cats. Young (too young) pregnant females is a huge problem at the moment.
