The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

January 11, 2013

The Weekend . . .

Let the painting begin! During the past few days, glassware and dishware have been arriving, and I have felt like a child before Christmas, anxiously wanting to place it on the shelves in the kitchen, yet patiently waiting. After checking to make sure nothing was broken (and admittedly just wanting to drool), I placed everything back in its respective boxes where it will remain until we finish painting the kitchen this weekend.

While window treatments will be a few weeks behind, I am giddy to see freshly painted walls and new dishes on the shelves come Sunday. You can be sure, I will be taking pictures of it all (a few peeks will be shared on Instagram this weekend – feel free to look here). Much like the images above, I will be attempting to open up my cabinets and accessorize with white and clear glass (have a look here to see a few of the items as they arrived). Needless to say, I’m ready to get started!

But enough about painting. I am happy to extend to a lucky reader a beautiful silver link necklace (29”) from Julie Vos. It is a wonderful piece to wear to work or in the evening with blouses or a dress - classically simple, yet statement making. Be sure to enter by this coming Monday (learn how to enter here).

Here is a look back over the past week on the blog:

Nice, very pretty. I love a beautiful kitchen too (even though I don't know how to cook, lol)
Is the contest open internationally?
