After many check-ins last night where the bid was stuck at $510, I finally decided to call it quits and go to bed.
I woke up in the middle of the night and was plagued by work thoughts, but didn’t sneak in to check the computer and risk waking the household with whoops of excitement. It was like waiting for Christmas morning and it was worth it to see that the final bid was $721.00!
Again, thanks to Mike Shinoda, proceeds benefit JANM & Music for Relief/Japan Relief.
Next auction starts August 1, with Kip Fulbeck’s ingenious ikebana Labbit entitled, “More than the Sum of Our Parts.”
I have been enjoying the opportunity to create flower arrangements every few days. It’s a nice way to start your day…contemplating art and beauty.
