Grandeur


Luxury comes in many forms.

After such a productive, full and wonderful week, (truly outstanding) Friday is here, bringing us into the weekend. I intend on taking a bit of extra time these next few days and to indulge a bit. To me, right now, luxury means a nice long bath, organic dark chocolate, and taking the time to enjoy a fabulous, new magazine... other times, it is a new handbag that I have been eying or maybe a vacation. I believe it is important to enjoy many forms of luxury, no matter where you live, what you do or how old you are.
















From an elegant coat, glistening chandeliers in a row, and incredible handbags, to the most expensive perfume in the world, a fascinating, concealed fireplace, vast bookcases, flowers, and a lovely antique stool, these images exude such luxury. Beautiful luxury. As the day comes to a close, I cannot wait to go out for dinner, in one of my new Autumn outfits, and spend some time nestled in with a few new books, magazines and blogs on Saturday and Sunday. What is on your list, friends?

I wanted to thank you for such lovely comments this week, especially on this post. I so enjoy sharing inspiration with you, and being inspired by what you share as well. And with that, I wish you a wonderful weekend!

  4. Sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned, Sarah. I'm off to Las Vegas actually for a friend's wedding -- should be fun, though honestly LV when your pregnant doesn't exactly hold the same allure!

  14. Amazing photos, as usual :-) Sarah, I totally agree with you...there are so many dimensions of luxury! My current luxury dream is having a library full of inspiring books neatly displayed in one place (instead of piled in every corner :-))

  19. Luxury is Sunday morning - the freedom we have in this country, in our beliefs, in our opinions - there are many who do not know these simple luxuries in life that we take for granted.
