  1. I wish I could have bid on so many things my dearest friend. I loved lots of items but SO wanted that baby for Cleo and I can always bring her up with Cleo for you to photograph. She needs to meet her cousins in the Hackney Household anyway! Love Aunty Sarah xx

  2. An amazing task… how I admire you! This is going to be “a long haul” as you said, seeing how there had to have been over 100 donated items… ! Your photos are crisp, clear and close-up… so we can see all the detail in these beautiful creations from very generous and talented people… representing seven countries.
    Lovely and unique items… my sincere “Congratulations” to all the winners… !
    Hugs, -Anne
    p.s. Thank you Kendal… your photos and written coverage here is wonderful.

  3. Brilliant photos Kendal, lovely to see these items close up, especially as I never got a chance to have a good look at them prior to the auction. Although got to see a few of them once they had sold on the undressing and packing table! love Cathy x
