A round of applause, please, for gorgeous and generous blogger Deja Pseu, who won my NieNie auction with a bid of $1,500! Little birds tell me that this might be a record auction bid in the NieNie world, though I will have to investigate that further.
To refresh your memories, the auction was being held to help pay medical expenses for blogger Stephanie “NieNie” Nielson and her husband Christian, both of whom were badly burned in a plane crash last month. You can keep up-to-date on their condition at Stephanie’s sister’s blog.
With her spectacular bid, Deja Pseu won my silver Diana Necklace, which will be specially engraved by a master engraver for her.

The rest of you should remember that $1,500 doesn’t go very far when treating someone who has been burned over 80% of her body. You can continue to contribute to NieNie’s fund by clicking the blue button to the right of this text. If you forward your receipt to wbjewelry at hotmail dot com, I will thank you on this blog.
UPDATED TO ADD: I’d like to thank gorgeous blogger CDP of (parenthetical) for her kind donation to NieNie’s fund via the blue button. Combined with the previous two donations from Nicole and Lisa, the button has raised $45 so far. Thanks, peeps!
