THE FOLLOWING 3 LOVELY PHOTOS COME TO US FROM THE KITCHEN OF







CIELO has this to tell us:
"The kitchen, along with the dinning room, are the most important places in my home. They are not meant just for consuming food; but for many other ocurrences... our daily life revolve around kitchen and dinning room. I like to cozy up my table by bringing the charms of my garden and the elusive pleasures of nature, indoors. I love to use pretty flowered vintage tablecloths and china that doesn't necessary have to be antique or expensive. White or pink napkins and a bouquet of roses are essential for dressing up my table, to make it as light as a sunlit meadow, as refreshing as a spring breeze, and as colorful as a cottage garden in full bloom--all those fleeting delights that make gardens so appealing.... If you are like me, you don’t wait for company to dress up your table, everyday is made special with pretty plates and dishes that are color coordinated and don’t cost much. No need to match, just patterns that creates a charming looks all of my own. "
Many thanks, dear friend, for giving us a peek into your beautiful and romantic kitchen..
It was our pleasure to visit

BJ, I am so happy to see your smiling face back here with us. We missed you. They need a vaccination against broken computers.

Every kitchen you have featured is just lovely. Each one has its own distinctive personality.

Thank you so much for doing this wonderful feature for all of us to enjoy.

Welcome back BJ, I sure missed you. I was very happy to catch up on those beautiful kitchens. I hope your crash wasn't too devastating and the cost didn't cut in to your new TV plans. (smile).

Blessings to your computer returning.
And to you and yours, Jeanne

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Yay, you're back! You were missed, and not just because I was waiting with bated breath to see the next set of gorgeous kitchens!

Dolly's kitchen just takes my breath away. It looks so warm and comfy! And your dream kitchen, wow, I can see why you like it! I too love the ceiling and those wood floors and the farmhouse sinks. I love country.

This was so much fun!

I'd have to agree with Cami on her submit from House Beautiful - that is an AWESOME kitchen - I'll have to file that one away for future note!!
As always - fun to stop by!
Karla & Karrie

Kathleen Grace said...

Thank goodness you are back! I was going through BJ withdrawal:>) Every one of these kitchens has something to love. The only problem with a post like this is actually choosing just one to dream about! If I ever redo my kitchen I now have no idea what it would look like becasue these are all so beautiful my head is spinning. Thanks for doing this BJ.

Terri said...

Just WOW! for this whole theme. One kitchen is more beautiful then the next!!!

This was a fun idea. Thanks for hosting!

Anita said...

So great to see you!!

That last kitchen that Kady sent has the cabinets I'd love to have in my kitchen...

But that white kitchen that Cami sent, with the fabulous floors is just AMAZING!

You have given me so many ideas to think about while planning our new house with all your kitchen posts... Thank you!! :)

(PS - there's something for you at Prairie Dreams!)

I know what you mean, BJ, about being without a computer. We have no internet access at the lake and I don't have a laptop anyway. We will soon have access and I will be getting a laptop, because I have absolutely terrible withdrawel symptoms even at our beautiful place at the lake, where I'm supposed to be letting the rest of the world go by!LOL

I've enjoyed all the kitchens, so much. Thank you for doing this fabulous series!

Pat

PEA said...

I'm the same way if I can't use my computer for a few days! lol Are we addicted or what??? hehe I've so enjoyed these latest kitchen pictures as well...fun to see what tastes these bloggers have:-) We spend so much time in the kitchen, it truly should be decorated the way we want!! xoxo

Debbie from NJ said...

Yey, BJ your back! thanks for posting these lovely kitchens. I love Dolly's!

Welcome back to blog land.....I have been missing you and all of my blog friends as I have been helping daughter with her move. I sure am glad you got your computers woes in check!

You're the best, dearie
