vanity for humanity


photo from viva

hi guys and bon soir, i hope all’s well in your wonderland. i wish i had a rug for all of us but alas, there’s only one in the giveaway. the more i look the more i like the striped one. i’ll see if they can offer all of us a group rate!

anyway the lucky winner is cindy of


her name came up on the random generator, twice! (once more comments came in i did it again) but it was obviously meant to be! coincidentally, miss cindy just got back from a year in costa rica with habitat for humanity. she says she doesn’t have a thing yet for her home so this will get her off to a good start. congrats cindy, your life looks like a whirlwind of fun!


i’m happy to say the vanity project for habitat for humanity is underway, here are the first pics. this beautiful shot was sent in by a beach cottage. (not a vanity per se but a good start)


and another just in this afternoon taken by rita.


and this just in from jenny of

vanity 006

thank you beautiful ladies!

house to home53

i found this during a quick trip to, she always has vanity inspiration.

bonnie of love your place is one of my best blogging buds and a researcher extraordinaire. she found this pretty load today for the project and is going to help put it all together.




but the truth is we need YoUrS! the vanity can be shot in full or as a closeup, it can be messy and edgy!

i’m excited to see your shots, sorry i didn’t give out an email address. you can send them to merci beaucoup
