Art Auction

I came across this wonderful impending online Art Auction, hosted by Rebecca Brooks.  All you have to do is build a cigar box shrine, and agree to send it to the winning bidder. The funds raised will go to  Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots.  Please click on the links above to take part and learn more.  There will be a site dedicated to the auction, for ease of participation.

I have bought a gorgeous vintage cigar box from Etsy seller Hope and Joy Home- and I guess you recognise the beautiful Princess above?

"Nothing brings me more happiness than trying to help the most vulnerable people in society. It is a goal and an essential part of my life - a kind of destiny. Whoever is in distress can call on me. I will come running wherever they are"  Princess Diana.

  3. Abi, thanks for the site...will check it out and see if it's possible for me to do it. I have some cigar boxes from a local tobacco store. The assistant gives them to me when the owner is either busy or not at the shop, otherwise, he sells them!!

    Thanks again, and have a wonderful weekend.

    xxoo,
    Georgina
