May I introduce you to my very good



You are going to so enjoy her new blog....she has a sense of humor to envy
and is a TOP NOTCH decorator.
Her home is right out of a magazine !!

NIKKI loves her 2 dogs and I am sure the feeling is mutual.
They seem to love the pretty pool as much as NIKKI does.

This is a photo of Nikki's fabulous kitchen
THE STAR IS CRUMPET, her beautiful side-kick

This kitchen reminds me of one funny story about our old RMS days....

Someone (who??) decided to post some of their collection of ROOSTERS...

Well, after that first posting, a LOT of other people started posting their roosters too.

OH, MY...what a parade....

Well, NIKKI didn't own a all....not even ONE.

she DID want to join in the fun so ......
she went to her freezer, pulled out a frozen
for all the world to see.

I'm telling you, I laughed so HARD for sooooo LONG,
I p'd my pants 40 times.
OH....we did get such a kick out of that....
and nobody in the world but my friend,
would have had the nerve to do it !


love, bj

Go over and welcome NIKKI and you will be so glad you did...

Hi BJ, with your admiration of your friend Nikki, I am definitely going right over to visit her. Her dogs are so cute and the chicken thing is beyond funny. Love!!! her kitchen.

Love you, and I am so happy to get the BJ I learned to enjoy, is really back.

Take care, Jeanne

Jeanne said...

I'm back, I have been meaning to tell you something. When you first visited my blog to welcome me to blogging, your comment stood out. Why not, you are a stand out kind of girl. Anyway you told me to hang my camera around my neck because taking photos will become my life. You were right on, I carry my camera everywhere, even to the movies. My dh is amazed. I never was much of a camera person.

Thanks for your good advice. Smile!

Love and hugs, Jeanne

ps I always remember what you said about the rooster going the opposite direction on my canister set. I love that about you and it made me laugh. You go girl!

Judy said...

How well I remember "NikkiCrumpet" from RMS. Since I don't visit RMS as often, I have missed her and wondered if she had a blog. I'm so glad she does. I'm going over to check her out now....

So I drag my weary butt home from a loooong day at work. My feet hurt and I broke a land speed record getting my socks and bra off. I plop down at my computer to see whats up and low and behold the nicest, sweetest, funniest lady I know has introduced me to blogland in a very special way. I'm not even sure what words to use to thank you. You are an angel! I remember when we met on RMS when we were fighting over which body part we were willing to give up to take some ladies entry door. And then you topped me by "eating a live zebra for that door" Ever since then I have a warm soft spot in my heart for you dear BJ. And the spot gets bigger and bigger when I see the kindness you spread around to everyone you meet. THANK YOU for inspiring my blog and then introducing me to all the nice people here. The only thing Is I sure hope they aren't dissapointed now that you over-hyped me lol! Thanks for making me feel like a soaring eagle...which isn't easy when the eagle has as big a butt as mine. Love ya!

Barb said...

Hi BJ!
Well any friend of yours is a friend of mine! I will go over and introduce myself as soon as I leave here.

I just posted about a little footstool I made over and I think the rug I have in my living room is just like the rug of your favorite RMS living room you posted about not too long ago...

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Jeanne said...

I am up early too. I finally crashed about 8:00 and feel rested at last. I have been running on empty with all this company. Rest is the best healer and it does a lot for he tired bags under ones eyes. Smile

Thanks for your sweet comments about my mom and my sister's drawing. They are a treasure for sure.

Love and hugs, Jeanne
