A Little More Auction Action!

For those of you who have been with us for awhile, you'll remember our former foster, Maddie Bouvier. She has a pretty great adoption tale, and if you'd like to read it and maybe cry some happy tears, please click here. There's also a follow up post with pictures of the event here.

Alicia and Tony, Maddie's mom and dad, are owners of Chroma Lab, where they produce colorful, modern furniture and home assocories. If you follow any of the design blogs, I'm sure you're seen their lovely work.

Chroma Lab has generously donated one of their lovely clocks to be auctioned off for our fundraiser. The winner gets to pick their favorite design from their website, and they will make it to order.

And here is one of their lovely clocks:

And here's a little blurb about the clocks from Alicia:
Each of our clocks are built by hand from quality birch plywood and then hand painted. They come in a variety of colorful designs that are sure to brighten up any room in your home! We use Benjamin Moore Aura paints on our clocks, as well as a semigloss acrylic polyurethane topcoat for a durable and glossy finish.

To visit the auction and place your bid, please click here.

I might have to get in on the action on this one... There's a striking red and aqua one that would look mighty fine in my kitchen!

Thanks so much Tony, Alicia and Maddie!
Oh, and if you would like to see what a lovely lady Miss Maddie has become, click here.
