You see, it's like this: Desiree is taking a school-group to Vietnam later this year. It has been in the planning stages for some time now, and those involved - the kids and their families - have been running fund-raising events to help offset at least some of the costs.
The latest was an Art Auction.
There was a good selection of work for sale - some donated, some on commission, some with reserve prices, some without.
We took (some of) the family along, and then bought a number of pieces ourselves.
