After a stressful week with sick kids and the whole bit, I intend to put my feet up this weekend and just relax. How I wish these rooms belonged to me. If you know me — you know my style. No words needed.
You also know my love for books. And how nervous I get if I don’t see books in a home. I love this room! And what an impact a black wall makes against all that white. Must try one day.
Before I sign off for the weekend, I just want to share 2 blog alerts with you. Attenzione!
I am a huge supporter of entrepreneurs (I have had a business myself) turning their dream into business (and I feel like a Mama bear for my friends). Here is another blog friend of mine who took the leap. The entertaining, smart and generous Sue with The Zhush just launched her first on-line store this week.
She is starting off small (or so she says!). Here you will find many lovely things for the home and yourself. I just purchased two friendship bling bracelets — one for me and one for a close girlfriend. I know that Sue is going to do very well. That is just part of who she is!
Lastly, I need to tell you about the most fantastic giveaway I have seen in blog land – EVER! And that is from no less than Joni with Cote De Texas. In my very early blog days (when I had zero, zip, nada followers), Joni took the time to both comment and send a couple of encouring e-mails to me. What a generous thing to do! I can’t say that I am part of Joni’s blog circle of friends, but I look up to her and that gesture I will never forget.
Back to Joni’s giveaway. And look closely. Joni with the brilliant company Julie Neill is giving away one of these two stunning chandeliers to a lucky winner this week.
The estimated retail price is around $3,800/each for these original, handmade pieces. Holy smoke! What a giveaway! A room that gets the company of one of these stunning pieces will only need a simple rug and a chair. That’s it. The chandelier makes the room. Go here to enter the giveaway.
With that I am signing off. Happy weekend to you all!
