MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH BLACK AND WHITE..a repost

BLACK AND WHITE.....
I JUST LOVE THE COLOR COMBO
Our own, sweet ROSIE, made this BLACK AND WHITE
Wall Caddy and I have sooooo enjoyed it.




I WANT THIS LIGHT FIXTURE....

I am very much enjoying my new
BLACK AND WHITE
backsplash



Altho these little boxes aren' t
BLACK AND WHITE,
they qualtify

I saw this cute idea in one of my magazines...
My vintage, metal stool with
Bill's old football number.
It sits beside my pantry and if I need to, I can use it to reach the top shelf..
(besides....it just looks cool in my kitchen ! :o)

Hat boxes are just so cute to me....
ESPECIALLY ZEBRA ONES ;o)



Mantel in living room





My favorite cap that "says it all"


A precious gift from a precious friend


YES....BLACK AND WHITE
is one of my
very favorite things....

love, bj

And, you do it so well. I love the color combination, too. You have such beautiful things, and such a knack for putting it all together.

Hi BJ...I'm being "Nana" this week and next, but still running by to check out your pretties. I love black & white too and I'm seriously considering doing a bathroom in it. My previous home had a black & white toile bedroom...walls, drapes, bedding, and lamp shades. Now I only have the bedding and valances in toile, but still love it. So happy to see your progressing enough to post a little something for us each day...Take care, :-) Brown-Eyes

TO BROWN-EYES....
So many thanks to you for stopping by with all your sweet words.
Please let me know if and when you do your black and white bath...maybe send me a photo? I would LOVE to do my bath in black and white, too....
Thank you for wishing me progress in my recovery...I appreciate it so much.
love, bj

I thought I already saw this post, until I read that this is a repost. Well like the first time I enjoyed it very much. I adore your house because it has so many details and it is filled with so much love.

Have a great day. Suzy

I always enjoy searching your pictures for your collection of Reader's Digest Condensed Books. Today, I found them on your mantel. Growing up, I always thought they had the prettiest covers and endpapers. They are great summer reading, too! Thanks for the eye candy. Sally

I have a black and white checkered floor in my kitchen! love it!

Julie said...

Me too - Me too!!! I love the combo of black and white - especially with a French Country flair! Where did you get the picture of the hanging lamp? I am looking for a hanging lantern (actually 4 of them) to hang in my barn to replace some yucky industrial lights that are currently in there.

Thanks!

Hi BJ
I love black and white too, especially checks and polka dots! I just freshened up our bathroom with white paint and a soft green on the walls. I am thinking about painting the vanity and mirror black and then making a black and white check showwr curtain. Now if I just something by MacKenzie Childs... Maybe I'll try to copy her checks on something. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Hope you have agreat weekend.
Hugs, Rhondi

I love all the black and white. Someone once told me that every room should have something that is black and white in it to "stabilize" the room.
Hugs.

Hey BJ

I saw some new things you have that I didn't know about. I'm making me a list so when I go on my next theiving run I'll know what to pick up at your house. And make sure to make me a fresh batch of those chocolate chip cookies...I'm sure you'll have snarfed em all up before I get there! Thanks again for your post yesterday...I was so sure I was going to be all alone in blogland just talking to myself. But you introduced me to soooo many nice people.You're the best!

Hi BJ! I've come and come to see you and you've never been to see me. Do you not know who I am? I'm Picklepoo from Rate My Space. Maybe my 'real' name has thrown you off. I was just hoping to hear from you sometimes and pray you're getting stronger every day!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia aka Picklepoo :)pp
