Well done Paul - the credit goes to you for taking the time and effort to photograph and list the drawings - then pack, post and deal with enquiries . . . drawing them was the easy bit. And thanks to all who chipped in with their hard-earned - much appreciated :)
Well I decided to chose my own xmas pressie this year [not that my better half doesn't try and get suitable stuff ] and I was delighted to win the LRP drawing - looked very good online and stunning when I received it! Just had it framed then it'll be under the tree. Thanks to Paul for such careful wrapping and very fast delivery Let us know if there are any more charity auctions Tim...

Well - funny you should ask

The kids of Orkney are very lucky in many respects they live in a wonderful part of the world. But, getting off the islands is a necessary part of their development and travel to and from Orkney is very expensive. Every year the kids of Stromness go to an outward bound centre for a week and their parents have to foot the bill. These auctions are part of the fund-raising the kids and parents are doing to help off-set the costs.
All the proceeds of this auction will go to the Stromness Primary School Lagganlia fund. Thanks for bidding!

Possibly the last post of the year - and therefore of the thread. Fittingly it's one of those funny pink punk birds. Season's Greetings to all . . . see you in another thread

nicely done - I saw a bunch of c40 Waxwings looking like wet sentrys in the rain today whilst on a mission to buy swedish turnips and chipolatas- and thought the Waxer's deserved rendering that way, not always in their most coloured and active mode

Are we taking bets on this? My guess is that at least one more will slip into the thread, and most likely of a real rarity. Merry Christmas and Season's Greetings.
