Since we can only post one photo with each post, I'm putting up several posts about the brick auction - I hope you find them of interest.
Through a friend of mine, I found out about a brick auction (in the Cincinnati, OH area) which raises funds for breast cancer. This event has been going on for several years. You can read more about it at www.breastcancerbricks.org.
The bricks can be simply painted or items can be added to them (mosaics, cloth, beads, etc.). The main criteria is that each brick must have the pink cancer ribbon displayed on it somewhere. I think it__™s a novel idea and always wonder if my brick will ___sell___. They have a silent auction with the bricks set up on tables and then they usually also have a live auction at some point with a local newsman officiating. Various sponsors have raffles and of course there is food and wine, so it makes for a pleasant afternoon or evening.
The first time I entered a brick, several years ago, my first brick was ___Gina Lola Brickada___, based on Gina Lola Brigida (of course!) I had read somewhere that she is an artist and I thought that she would get a kick out of finding herself the basis of a ___sexy brick___ (never would have thought you would hear those two words together!). Here are photos of that one. Be aware that this is a digital photo of actual photos " they were taken long before I purchased a digital camera. Gina has been painted from all sides " she™s just headless! Also legless and armless, but, hey, she™s a brick after all!
