It is rather insane that people are so caught up in the lives of celebrities that these things sell for such big money. Sheeeesh!! Wonder how Britney feels that her little sister's baby pic sold for double what hers did, hahaha.

What prices! And I wouldn't want a single one of them!

Karla @ Ramblin' Roads said...

That's just crazy! As if these people don't already have more money than they know what to do with!

Denise Patrick said...

It's absolutely nuts what people will do (and pay) for inconsequential crap! We have our priorities screwed when pictures of babies go for such outrageous amounts!

Cute pic at the end.

Happy TT!

I don't care one way or another about celebrity gossip or pictures. It's nuts the sort of money that gets thrown around for their photos.

the teach said...

Great Gattina, I'm glad you controlled yourself and didn't sell out your child for money!! Ha! :)

Hootin' Anni said...

Just like a meat market...selling their baby's flesh by the pound. I think it's ridiculous.

Tink said...
