what the days bring


hi guys! thought i’d take a minute and share some new goodies that came to my inbox. for the life of me i can’t get a good shot but maybe that’s better since they’re rough drafts. my dream of working with other bloggers is starting to come true. as you may (or not) recall i’m trying to fill my boutique with treasures made by bloggers, either especially for tpa or from their/your current collection. i met heather of realcardstudio.com awhile ago. i sent her a couple images and i love what she sent back! (above)


it hits the spot too cause i love collaborating and it’s a natural since we’re on these contraptions all day anyway! of course she’s uber talented. these are from her site above an below and her blog is exceptionallyinviting.blogspot.com.



needless to say her creativity is totally inspiring and this is a new avenue of fun.

on another note i wanted to send a thank you to mandy from a-la-parisienne.blogspot.com. she wrote about the vanity project on her site and took shots of her own for it. a magnificent post, as always!


another of my femmes parisienne is, coincidentally, parisienne farmgirl.blogspot.com, who just finished her chambre, complete with vanity and all the trimmings. she was inspired by an old shot of mine so i was very proud :)

thank you for another great submission by claire at alltheprettythingsuk.wordpress.com.


finally i’d like to welcome melissa from reverie-daydream.com to our list of sponsors. she travels the world with her husband and daughter sourcing beautiful artisan products from small businesses. they’re eco-conscious too and they use recycled items for everything from paper to shipping material.


not to mention her products are exquisite.


well i better run cause what the day brought is only about half of what’s here and i have to tend to it the rest, like now. have a great nuit!

    Great vanity shots!!


  10. Natasha Burns replied:

    What beautiful work you’ve shared from fellow bloggers :)

    Thanks so much for stopping by my REVAMP IT challenge post – I hope you’ll be able to join in! I would do a design star one, except I don’t really know what that show is about. Even though we do get the US version of it here in Australia, I’ve never watched it so i wouldn’t know what to do! Feel free to host one!!!

    how fabulous! such wonderful collaborations and beautiful things…


  12. a la parisienne replied:


    I have really enjoyed looking at all of the vanity entries. It’s so interesting to see how women personalize the place where they put on make-up, style their hair, and reflect on the many things they must do that day! Thank you for sharing my vanity with your friends. I always appreciate your kind and encouraging words.
