MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS

I want to share with you my favorite...VERY FAVORITE
PORCH or VERANDA
of all times !

I've not ever seen anything as lovely as this...

and PLEASE
go over to
RATE MY SPACE,
type in

moonlightandmagnolias

and get prepared for such a WONDERFUL treat of the most breathtaking rooms.
SUSAN has so much talent and it is just PURE PLEASURE to see her work.

Can you even imagine sitting down, enjoying a delicious fare
in this FABULOUS sitting?



I can't even make my pitcher of tea THIS pretty !
Please note the fabulous wicker porch swing...
and
don't you just love how she covered all the chains in the pretty white sleeves ?


That wicker swing with the covered chains is so luscious !!
I just can't get over it !!! sigh*

love it, love it, love it

I adore her whimsy here....

I'm telling you...this just makes me suck in my breath,
it's so pretty.


How perfect is this for this PERFECT PORCH

*************************************************


There's many more photos of this and other lovely spots around her home on

RATE MY SPACE

Plus, just reading her descriptions on ea. page is so much fun.

She has a "way with words", too, and makes it all sound so pretty.

As you can tell, I am so an avid fan of
MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS

Go over and say hi and give her a pat on the back for a

JOB WELL DONE.....

oh, and would you tell her bj said "HEY" ?

lOVE,
bj

Susan's porch is as lovely and inviting as her persoanlity is.. She truly welcomes you in and makes you feel at home.. I love roaming the halls of each and every room of her home...She is truly an inspiration in more ways than one.. You did a beautiful job of showcasing my gal pal... hope you're doing much better. Many continued prayers are sent up or you... hugs ~ lynne ~

Nobody, but nobody can make make sweet Southern tea like MoonlightandMagnolias does, and her cookies always seem to be warm, just like they were fresh from the oven. I like nothing better than to spend my spare time on her welcoming porch. Thanks for spreading the word about this wonderful space.

Dearest BJ, I want to thank you so, so much for posting these pics of my screened-in porch as part of your blog today. I am truly humbled and my heart is overflowing with gratefulness for all the sweet comments that have been posted here. BJ, you are one of the most caring, generous and giving souls I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing! Wish I could give you a great big hug!
:-) Much love to you! Susan

I've never been to your blog, but when I heard that you had posted Susan's wonderful porch, I had to run over and thank you for sharing her talents with others. I have always thought that this porch was absolute perfection! I really think I could live in Susan's porch and never need anything (well, maybe a cold drink now and then, but you can sure tell from her wonderful tablescapes that she is a great hostess, so I'm sure that would be provided). I'm going to tour some more of your blog while I'm here. Looks like another blog going to my "favs". Laurie, a/k/a bargainhunr

Betty said...

I agree with you. These are beautiful room. I wanted to go to Susan's site and tell her you sent me, but I can't find a link to it. DUH! I feel so stupid as it seems others have not had any trouble locating her.

Deb said...

WOW!! I am on my way to check this out, simple elegance:)

Joy said...

Very pretty! Love all her special details she has added.

beddow said...

I agree with you totally BJ. Beautiful!

It was so nice to see Susan's wonderful porch featured on your blog!! She is truly one of the most elegant and beautiful women, inside and out, on RMS. Not only is her porch lovely, but she has such talent in displaying all of her precious things! All her pictures on RMS look like they were photographed for a magazine! Her porch and home are exquisite and I would urge anyone who hasn't visited RMS to drop by Susan's porch for a glass of tea and cookies...but most of all, to meet our sweet Susan! Tomarie

Oh what a treat to see this lovely porch again. Susan and her porch share so many of the same attributes. Charm, beauty, warmth and the feeling of such hospitality. When I think of a perfect Southern home, hers comes to mind. Thank-you BJ for featuring this wonderful place and a wonderful friend. Cindy (MariEli'sAmi) from RMS
