I'm sharing just a few pictures (more will come tomorrow) including the boobie bowl, made by yours truly. The auction was not as well attended as I wanted and it scared me - I thought uh oh less people, no money. But we raised an amazing $1,440.50 for breast cancer research!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My friend Dawn stepped in at the last minute, volunteering to be auctioneer, and my BFF Trudy played Vanna White, carring the bras around and semi-modeling some. Some of the stories with the bras were stunning....and moving....and inspiring. For more pictures, you can go to www.bras4thecause.org. Here's more:
These are retired badges from former girls scouts, submitted by a current GS leader on behalf of all her little girls who have yet to get their boobies.
Carolyn did this exquisite tiled bra....
And this one represents several: lots of frills, buttons, bows, jewels. Just plain fun!
The weekend with my friends - laughing, hugging - was just what I need to chase the blues away. And we are such a party crowd, there are TWO more gatherings this coming weekend: a birthday party and a wedding party - so I get to see them all again!!!
More pictures tomorrow - I'm still trying to catch up from being away all weekend. Stopped at Home Depot on the way home and bought eight gazillion floor tiles for my kitchen, a new kitchen sink and hardware, new blinds for the bedroom, new curtain rod for the kitchen and a new living room rug. And I still have $70 left on the gift card all my dear friends gave me when I moved away. Now I'll have a bit of each of them in nearly every room in my house!
I'm interviewing the head of the Down East Community Hospital today and a group that is expanding their processing ability to market organic blueberries - the market is growing rapidly. Work, work, work. Gotta admit, I love it.
