TILE WORK AND CUTE EMAIL STORY

That pretty TILE is on it's way around the backsplash of my kitchen
and
I AM HAPPY
NOW....as you can easily tell in this photo,
my OLD sink is
ALMOND
instead of WHITE
A new sink is just not in the Social Security Budget at this time
Not to worry tho....
I am so tickled to death over getting the BLACK AND WHITE TILE
that I am NOT letting a small thing like ALMOND or WHITE
mar my HAPPINESS
(besides, if you will remember, I am holding out for a
BEAUTIFUL WHITE FARM HOUSE SINK
**********
This tile is so different from anything I have ever had that everytime I walk into the kitchen to take a peek, it nearly
SLAPS ME DOWN
I think, however, once I have THINGS..... pretty things..... sitting in front of it and it is not just
"OUT IN THE OPEN, BUCK NAKED
it won't be as jarring to me
I AM SO HAPPY
*************************************
NOW FOR A CUTE LITTLE JOKE

Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven.

When they get there, St. Peter says, "We only have one rule here in heaven: don't step on the ducks!"

So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.

Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw. St. Peter chains them together and says, "Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!"

The next day, the second woman accidentally steps on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn't miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man.

He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.

The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps.

She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the MOST handsome man she has ever laid eyes on ...
VERY tall,
LONG eyelashes
MUSCULAR, and THIN ,
JUST PRETTY MUCH XTRA good lookin'

St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.

The happy woman says, "I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?"

The guy says, "I don't know about you, but I STEPPED ON A DUCK !"



HAVE A FABULOUS SATURDAY

hugs, bj

I STEPPED ON A DUCK!!!!!!I was reading along quite happily right up the second I snorted coffee thru my nose and dumped Hound on the floor, and adding insult to injury, landed her on the poor dog! Best one yet!

The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

HA!! Great joke!
The tile is looking awesome, just perfect! And, the silk doesn't look so almondy in the photos as it probably does IRL and that's all that matters here, eh? LOL! Hold out for that sink sweetie... are you keeping an eye out on craigslist and ebay? You just never know...

Wow, that is looking SO good!! You've got me absolutely itching to start on my own kitchen!! :o)

Helen said...

Good morning! Loved the cute joke and your backsplash. My little kitchen needs one behind my stove and counters. Of course I am now inspired to start looking. Happy Weekend!

Alice said...

love the tiles!!!! i love the impact they make and when you get stuff like you want it, it will be so dramatic and wonderful. i'd do the same thing in mykitchen, but i don't have a bh (is blog talk for hubby?) to do the work and don't want to shell out the moola right now. i'm sure i could do it myself, but it would take forever and i don't have the energy. i'll just enjoy looking at all the pretty ones on the blogs.
i have my blog all ready to publish, but still undecided about it.
blessings, al

I encourage you to do some things you would just LOVE to your kitchen...even little, bitty, tiny things can make you feel so good about the room we spend so much time in. To ME, anything I can do to make it MINE...to be just a tiny bit different just thrills me to death...
AND, you have to PROMISE that you will take pictures and share them with all of us !! :o)
hugs, bj

Beverly said...

BJ, that was a good one. I love it. I sure hope my man didn't step on a duck.

It's looking great. I can hardly wait to see more pictures.

Oh BJ, you are such a hoot! I loved the joke, and that duck picture is priceless! Soooo cute!!

Your backsplash looks fabulous! I can't wait to see the whole thing done. I love your kitchen. Loved the letters too that you made with grandchildren. How is the weather there? It's 90 degrees and humid here in central NJ. I don't like it at all. Have a great weekend!

I love love love the black and white tiles. It sort of reminds me of Mary Engelbreit. My kitchen is black, white and red. The red really makes the black and white pop.

Loved that joke. Can't wait to tell it to someone.

Hello BJ, I love the black and white tile. It is so classy. I also had a good laugh over your joke. We have company for next week so if I miss a day you will know why.

Take care. Jeanne

Southern Lady said...

BJ ... I love your tile -- it's just perfect for your kitchen and accessories. And I didn't even notice that your sink isn't white until you mentioned it.

I can't wait to see your tile work when you finish it. Hurry!

Cookie said...

Hey BJ, I really like your tile! Whimsical things make me feel really happy. I love things that are playful. It's hard to have a bad day in a happy place.

Thanks so much for linking the red shoes! I'm putting together a special page that will link back to my players. It should be up before I go to bed...in a while.

Hugs,
Cookie

Mary said...

LOL BJ. Very cute duck.

Sorry I haven't been over for a while. If you get time, drop by my Writing Nook to see what I've been doing. LOL Your kitchen is not a mess. Have a look at my place where the tenant moved out.

Love your backsplash. You saw my dream kitchen and I love yours. I hope you are able to get your farm sink. I look forward to photos some time in the future.

Take care and have a wonderful day.
Blessings,
Mary
