items were the highlight of a live auction. In addition to the birdhouses, other auction items included jewelry, wine, Nashville Speedway tickets, paintings, and more. Area restaurants and caterers provided some great food and beverages, too.
Joe White (above), who happens to be my neighbor, was the auctioneer. He's showing off This is Music Row, one of my favorite birdhouse entries and one of the live auction items.
A side note. . . The birdhouse that I designed was in the silent auction. When we left the event, it was still in the auction, and the bid at the time we left was over $100.
