Last Pic of Dollhouse Before it Goes

Friday, March 22, 2013

The addition of the flower boxes really made it pop!

Wish it luck at the Scholarship Fundraiser Auction Gala tomorrow night.

I have been having anxiety dreams about it. A lot of work, time, love, and expense went into building it; I hope it brings an excellent price to support scholarships. My friends who followed my blogs about this last year's donation probably remember I was disappointed and promised never to build another dollhouse for this event again. So much for me and my promises.... I'm too much of a softie, I guess.

This is last year's donation. My consolation for it not bringing in nearly as much as I hoped was that an absolutely delightful child got it and has been having fun with it ever since. She keeps me posted with what new things she has added to it.

The auction committee is trying to help this year's house bring in more by putting it in the live auction instead of the silent auction. This is causing another level of stress. Lots of in basic introvert triggers are getting set off.

I'll let you know how all of this goes.

    Love the new house !! And did you buy the little Adirondack chair or build it yourself?
I know you were the "Belle of the Ball" at your fundraiser. You have a flair!!

    The flower boxes are lovely. And: I'm glad last year's project at lest went to a child who really appreciates it. Too bad her parents couldn't (or didn't) bid higher . . . . Maybe a raffle ticket approach would be fairer with a minimum number of tickets to be sold??

    They are both beautiful, and I can imagine the work and love you have put it them. I am hoping it gets the bids it deserves.

    I agree about the flower boxes. Too bad we can't bid for it with the house going to a student whose name is drawn. Good luck. This was another fun project to follow. -- Lou

    Your dollhouse is just beautiful. So cute that the child keeps you posted.

    Yes, I remember last year's disappointment, I was so disappointed too! But what you are saying about the child who got it is lovely. Still, I am very much hoping this year's house (it is so beautiful, so elegant... and indeed the flowers finish it perfectly!) will raise a lot of funds. Please, do keep us posted!

    I'm sorry that last year's dollhouse didn't bring in as much as you had hoped, but what a wonderful consolation! And it may be that her parents bid as much as they could afford, and she might not have ended up with it if someone else had bid up the price.

I admire you for your amazing talent, and donating it for such a worthy cause.
