DAY DREAMS


Our brand new blogger friend,
NIKKI at BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLOG just posted about
DAY DREAMS
and asked what WE day dreamed about...
Well....for ME....
OTHER THAN
HARRISON FORD, HUGH GRANT, AND JOHNNY CASH
I tend to
DAY DREAM
about beautiful homes and rooms.....
******************************************

FIRST OF ALL...I would like to say that when I see a picture of a room that I just love, I just save it to MY PICTURES...then, when I post, I can't remember where I got the picture....

What I am trying to plead here is that if you
see YOUR room, PLEASE don't sue me....
I AM JUST DAY DREAMING ABOUT YOUR PRETTY ROOM !!!

But, mostly....PLEASE don't be mad at me....I just like your room and I tend to lose control......
*********************
SOME OF MY DAY DREAMING ROOMS

What a quite elegance here....how did SHE manage to make it look so elegant but not all fancy ?
I just love it.....


FRENCH COUNTRY.....it's hard to beat !!
TIMELESS !

This is a BEFORE picture of a thrifted chair....(not mine )


And this is a WOW picture......
Didn't SHE do a fabulous job !!!!!!!!!! Yes, 'mam....SHE sure did....
I am more than SORRY that I don't know who this belongs to...
I would like to give CREDIT where credit is due...
NOTE ADDED:
This lovely chair belongs to the talented
SANTAMAKER
of RATE MY SPACE
To see more of her talents, please visit her soon....

LOVE IT.. LOVE IT....LOVE THAT RED....




These next few pictures are for that softer side of me.....I love Shabby Chic...it is just hard for us to live with. I do enjoy looking at others, tho !

How quite and serene this is...
Those soft colors are so sweet. It sure makes me wonder if all my reds are too JARRING !?!

NAWH.....I LOVE RED




The sofest, lovliest colors...like those candy mints served at showers....


There is something to be said about the charm of SHABBY CHIC.......

I do love all HER aprons hanging here....
I am in dire need of APRONS....
I'll check out some of the ETSY shops...

Well, I am just about to have a run-away over those precious curtains....Aren't they so cute..
I love plaids and checks....

and this room is chock full of personality....I do just love it all..... look at HER candle chandy with the roosters.....




I have to hurry and get this posting done so I can go over to EBAY and see if I can find some vintage, wooden hangers.....



Another darling dining area....
I love the blue and white with the natural wood of the hutch...



*DROOL and * SIGH......

I know MARY over at LITTLE RED HOUSE is drooling, too.....
She loves BLUE AND WHITE

Run over and take a look at her pretty blog.
OH,
and pls tell her bj said "wipe the slobber off your lips!!" :O)



DO LOTS OF DAYDREAMING ...
IT'S GOOD FOR THE SOUL !!

ALL IS WELL WITH MY SOUL
hugs, bj

I like to daydream about decorating too, and now I can do it while I have a decorating project to do:>) I always love the rooms you show!

Beverly said...

I've wiped the drool off of my chin. All the rooms are lovely.

Now, off to work for me. Ugh! It isn't a daydream.

I enjoyed coming along on your daydream today :-) I think I need to spend some time with my magazine scrap books today...... now that you got me in a daydreaming mood ;-0

"Magnolia" said...

Lord, girl, I think we were separated at birth! You seem to love all the things I love! Wonderful rooms to sit and daydream about. TFS!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Your daydreaming rooms are wonderful - each and every one. I am a red girl like you (but you already knew that, huh?) but I have to agree with you about the shabby look - very sweet and light and bright.

Have a lovely day!

BJ, Loved your day dream tour. Ahhhh daydreaming is a pleasure I can't find much time to do. I should try harder. The best part of your daydreams is all your comments in between. You are talented in the gift of writing. Thanks for making me smile.

Love you, Jeanne

Rhondi said...

Hi Bj
I daydream about house too, ever since I was a little girl! I have a hutch very similar to that white one with the blue and white china. I have been trying to decide whether to paint it red or white. I already have the blue and white china in it. I just can't decide.
I loved looking at all the beautiful interiors you showed us today.
Hugs, Rhondi

Hi BJ! I always daydream after I get my new supply of decorating magazines each month!!

~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

Hi BJ,
I daydream about decorating all the time. Dh will see me gazing around the room with that look on my face, and he just asks: "Decorating?"
Thanks for featuring my cottage kitchen! I'm honored! :)
Oh, also wanted to mention that my mom has actually met Harrison Ford. She even had her picture taken with him, but I think she threw it away, deciding it was a silly thing to keep! (I don't take after her, I keep EVERYTHING and then some!! ;)

PEA said...

Well now you have me daydreaming about all those beautiful rooms!! lol Isn't it marvelous how some people can get a room together with such ease and make it look so welcoming. I just love all the pictures you showed on your post. What would we do without our daydreams:-) xoxo

Southern Lady said...

BJ, I loved your "Day Dreams" post and all of those pretty rooms.

My favorite picture is the first one of that gorgeous dining room. Every detail is perfect and the beautiful rug just ties it all together.

Talking about daydreaming ... I saw a house in this month's Traditional Home Magazine that has just haunted me. I guess I'm going to have to write a post about it so I can get it out of my system ... lol.

Sincerely,

Janie

Mary said...

Too late, bj -- I just drooled all over my keyboard! LOL Yes, I LOVE all that blue and white! I also adore that black and white chair! What a fun post, to see all your daydreams. :)

I wanted to give you a great big HUG and thank you for voting for my pics! You have always been such an encouraging voice for me, and such a sweetheart! So...THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
xoxo,
Mary
