House is in the Bag

A world where everyone has a decent place to live. 

Recently, I attended a unique fundraiser to benefit our local Habitat for Humanity. The House is in the Bag included a silent auction, a live auction and other special events. Handbags, totes, and other bags enticed bidders. This annual event supports the construction of a home in my community for a local resident. It's an excellent cause that I am proud to support.

I love the creative way that the bidding paddles were displayed.

The ball room sparkled with colorful decorations.

Every detail was perfect, from the Ethan Allen furniture that was staged in a lounge area to the purse cupcakes on the sweets table.

Quite a few live auction items tempted me at the event. Of course, the list included lots of Kate Spade, Fendi, Furla, and more! Little extra surprises like wine tastings, Disney tickets, and spa treatments were hidden inside each bag.

I took this beautiful salmon colored bag and bracelet home with me.

It was a perfect night!
