have a heart - Visual Vamp Auction

By now everyone must know that our dear friend Cholo is happy to have Valorie (visual- vamp)and Alberto back in New Orleans. ( Alberto was in the hospital in Calgary after a heart attack.) My heart aches for them. For days, I have been worried and wondered how I could help. Blogger -decor to adore jumpled to it and has an on-line auction. I have donated a custom work of art, of your pet. (update -11/9 - 8 am, Bids started at $50 and the latest bid was for $125 - bid by leaving a comment)
Last Summer, I had the pleasure of meeting Valerie and Alberto and they both left a special place in my heart! In fact Valorie left her heart necklace which I had to return. She wore a wonderful red heart~ which she took off when they danced the tango for us in my home.

Let's show our support, opening bid will start at $50 and all donations will be given to Valorie and Alberto. Bids will close in one week.
Blogger's unite and show our support for a friend in need! Please feel free to make a pay-pal donation, on-line at;

Patricia- A heart necklace, a heart attack... Isn't it poignant how delicate our hearts are?

I will head right over to the auction - thanks for donating your artwork and letting us all know.

You are doing a wonderful thing:) I have been following their saga and what a horrible thing to go through. My thoughts and prayers have been with them.

Hi Patricia!
Imagine my surprise
after JUST seeing you
and the other lovelies
in Woman's Day and
then realizing that
THIS was the lady who
all the auctions are
for! And, I just so
happen to remember the
very post that you write
of, with this cute couple
doing the tango. I will
bid $100 : ) What a
kind thing you are doing,
xx Suzanne
