Christmas Shopping

Here it is. The post of shopping--- whooo hoooo.  Something for everyone on your list!!

Here's how it works. You place a bid via the comments section (if you don't have an account and want to bid email me at ronvic7@yahoo.com and I will put in your bid for you)

There are THREE--- yes, 3 of EACH item available. So first 3 highest bids will get the items. (Except the quilt- just one of those!)

PLEASE use the item number beside each item to note which item you are bidding on. I will go back and add your bid to the item so you all can see what bids are for what items.  

 Bidding starts NOW--- ends December 12, 2012 at  noon EST. 

We ask you bid for all things in increments of 50 cents. So if an item is $15 and you want to be high bidder you can bid it up to $15. 50, or $16.00, $16.50, etc.  Tammy has DONATED the jewelry items and is giving us 100% of the profit-- thanks soooo much Tammy!

Shipping is $2.50 first item, $4 for two items and $5 for three items.  I will  list the winners and you send payment (Paypal preferred) at auctions end.   Your items will be shipped  in time for Christmas:)

It was then that I carried you. What a great reminder in times of trouble that we are NOT alone. That HE is with us and will never forsake us or leave us. This ring could be for a man or woman. It would also make a great thumb ring.
This popular text describes a dream, in which the person is walking on a beach with God They leave two sets of footprints in the sand behind them. Looking back, the tracks are stated to represent various stages of this person's life. At some points the two trails dwindle to one, especially at the lowest and most hopeless moments of the character's life. When questioning God, believing that God must have abandoned his follower during those times, God gives the explanation: "During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."
  • Sizes  6 (one) 7 (one) and 8 (one)

I just came across your blog. These items are so sweet -- as is your growing family. I live overseas, so these look like a great way to send some Christmas presents home. To make it simple, I would like to bid $12 each on numbers 1,2,3,4, and 8. I love how these items seem made for my family. My mother is a choir director and likes Christmas tree pins, my father is an inveterate New Englander and what says New England more than a lighthouse, and my sister-in-law is a vet. And the snowman's for me because he's just so happy, and living in Taiwan, I haven't seen snow in over a decade!
