Honestly, I never understand why people get mad about being outbid at the last second. The last second is the only time it makes sense to bid, otherwise you just drive up the price.<br><br>
I am the type who gets irked by people bidding on the first day of an auction, it just makes it more expensive for me.<br><br>
I got outbid on the blue sky one, too. Just watched the rest. They would all have had sentimental value to me, I had fun fantasizing while it lasted.<br><br>
(not that anyone wants to know, but the tree one was the one I was first interested in, b/c I fell in love with my dh while we were climbing a tree. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> , the kiwi one, I loved b/c I spent 5 months in NZ and its my favorite place on earth, and the blue sky one, because, well sky blue has been my favorite for years.)<br><br>
Ah, at least I got some reminiscing in, and that doesn't cost a dime. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Oh, and congrats to the mama who won! Take good care of it now, ya hear. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Oh, I didn't mean you shouldn't be disappointed! I was a too, and I only had the blue sky when it was still in the forty-ish range, in the last minute. What I said was meant in a much more general sense, I feel like I am always hearing people get seriously pissy about last minute bids in the CD community. No harm meant--I should have just posted hugs and ranted about my peeve in another thread. Sorry.

nataly, for what it's worth little B would not be able to wear it for a little while. perhaps another will come up on the TP or ebay in that time. also, a Better Garden might come along in that time too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> isabella is 13 mo and almost 18 lbs and STILL doesn't fit into the mediums well :LOL.............. i was watching the trees, but it went insane in the last 10 seconds so i decided not to play with fire.<br><br>
sorry you missed it, better luck next time, and i MISS YOU <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> that one is pretty....I get upset when I don't win auctions either. dh tells me not to bid until the auction is close to closing. Not sniping; at different increments towards the end. I heard here that sniping wasn't nice, so I've never done it; but, then I've heard mamas say they snipe. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"><br><br>
btw, I lost the melon to dana and then kathleen sold hers and I got it for less. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> It was in perfect condition! You could get a better chance. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
A new garden! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yikes">: I need to buy some nbs those smalls won't fit right off unless he/she is a biggone....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/guilty.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="guilty">
