UMMM........


just thought we'd take another look at some of the rooms i just love...


after seeing this beauty, i am all ready to redo my kitchen...
i don't remember just who this belongs to but, boy howdy, she sure knows how to make
a CHARMING kitchen...
i am lovin' that RED ISLAND...
SHEEZE....this is so PERSONALITY PLUS...
WHAT A ROOM... !! I'M IN LOVE !
THIS is one that's been in MY FAVORITES file for several years...
and....I STILL JUST LOVE IT...
I'VE BEEN in love with this one forever, too...
i love that her cup matches everything !! ;O)
MY FAVORITE ROOM OF ALL TIME....!!!!


I think this little bath is just the sweetest thing...
it's long been a favorite of mine...
WHO'S IS IT ?
I've seen so many rooms now that I get confused...(and you thought it was old age!!)
I think it belongs to a friend of mine on RMS
but...I'm not sure.... so i'm not naming names !!! ;O)

this makes me drool all over my keyboard...
anyone ...does this belong to YOU? IF SO...you sure know your decorating stuff !!
I WANT IT.....BAD !

OOO, yeah....I know who THIS one belongs to...;O)
*****************
when i drool over all these pretty rooms, it doesn't mean, for a minute, that i
am not proud of MY rooms, too...
i just love looking at the different ways different people put things together...
AND I AM A HUGH FAN of driving around in the evenings and
PEERING THRU THE WINDOWS TO SEE WHAT THE ROOMS LOOKS LIKE...!!
can you get arrested for that ??

SEE YA, bj
******************************************************
MAY I leave you with a giggle.......


THE KNOB vs Plastic Surgery
A woman visited a Plastic Surgeon who told her about a new procedure called THE KNOB,' where a small knob is placed at the top of the woman's head and could be turned to tighten up her skin and produce the effect of a brand new Face-Lift.
Of course, the woman wanted 'THE KNOB.
Over the course of the years, the woman tightened 'THE KNOB,' and the effects were wonderful, the woman remained young looking and vibrant. After fifteen years, the woman returned to the Surgeon with 2 problems.
"All these years, everything has been working just fine. I've had to turn THE KNOB many times and I've always loved the results.. But, now I've developed 2 annoying problems:'
First, I have these terrible bags under my eyes and THE KNOB won't get ridof them.'"
The doctor looked at her closely and said, '"Those aren't bags, those are your Breasts.'"
She said, 'Well, I guess there's no point in asking about the Goatee.'

The Muse said...

OHMYGoodness...what a joke...LOL

And yes..let's peer through more windows!

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, you are up and going early. Me too. I love all of your dream photos. I pour over magazines for decorating ideas. I like your idea of pouring over past posts. I Want some coffee now!!! I wish I could run right over to your lovely homes and get some. In fact my Bill just got up and asked, "Wheres the coffee?" I better go make it now. I need it bad! Have a happy day my friend.

Love...Jeanne

Your joke gave me a great laugh. Thanks for that one!!!

Tara said...

BJ
That joke was hysterical! The rooms you shared are all so inviting...if you ever win the lottery, you just send a builder these pics and say--make this house!

Tara

ksarra said...

Girl, you are something else!!! PS I love the same rooms that you do. Does kennect have a blog? And that's Sue's bath isn't it? PS I WISH Kitty Bartholomew was still on, I'd even watch the reruns. I almost never watch hgtv anymore either.

Gypsy aka Tam said...

Thank you for the laugh - you brightened my day.
That second photo has been in my inspiration file for a while as well. I'm dreaming when my boys decide to leave that one of there rooms will be transformed in that style to a guestroom.
Have a wonderful Thursday,
Tam

Janene said...

OMG! I thought that I was the only "Peeper" out there!
Those rooms that you posted are absolutely to die for!
I love the green walls with the red island in the kitchen! What is holding us back from creating these rooms in our homes?
I could live and sleep like a princess in those bedrooms!
I will definately refer back to this post of yours so that I can impliment some of these in my home!
It's a new year...so why not be daring and change your surroundings!

Beverly said...

I love all of your favorites, too. It seems most of us love looking at beautiful spaces.

Too funny!

Kathleen Grace said...

Lol! Oh my, you gave me a good laugh this morning! I like to look in the windows as I drive by houses at night too. You can't get arrested unless you stop and stand outside:>) I LOVE the black and white bathroom, I am sitting here wondering how I can adapt that to my own bath! Your home is just as beautiofulo as any of these others, you are one of my biggest sources of decorating inspiration!

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Love it when you share your favorite rooms because they inevitably become my favorites as well! But don't you touch your kitchen! I love it just the way it is....it's the way I want my kitchen to look :-)

Meggie said...

I, too, love the rooms that you shared as favorites. If you get arrested for peering into windows to get ideas, perhaps we can be cell mates.

Smilingsal said...

lol You got me with this one! lol

Stacey said...

I like your inspiration pics. Hey, the room with red and white checked pillows...I remember that from RMS and I always loved it. Used to be in my faves before the computer crashed. Do you remember how I can find that room?

Marcela said...

Hi dear BJ
Beautiful pictures as usual!!!
I hope you have a nice day:)

Kisses to you
Marcela

Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

Okay, your favorite rooms are the same as mine! Tina's sister's house has got to be one of my absolute favorites my goodness that woman can decorate! I love the apple green with the black and white toile set too...oh I could stare at these for hours! Thanks for the eye candy :)

Hugs,
Dena

Helen said...

You and I share a passion for so many of the same decorating themes. I love window peeping and though I should remember who those rooms belong to, I don't. But I do remember the fact that the first time I saw them they became favorites.

imjacobsmom said...

OMG, that joke was something else..... Okay, back to business here - I love all of your selections. I LOVE your style! ~ Robyn

Connie said...

You are sooooooooo bad, chickee!! I've never heard that one before but it's really cute.

You are tooo young looking to be 71, I tell ya.

Okay, here's what I do: answer the door with a dust cloth in hand and say you were just cleaning house and if the vacuum is sitting out it gives you even more credibility.

OR you can just tell them that dusting/cleaning disturbs your feng shui and you'll see their eyes glaze over.......

Hah......smooches,
Connie

Come visit for a giveaway in a few days for my 500th post, sugah......

Bo said...

Hi BJ...all the photos were wonderful & I really did love the last one! BTW, I'd like to have one of those knobs...I just wouldn't twist mine so tight...

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Enjoyed all the photos. I think the first one is Tina's (Cherry Hill Cottage) sister's kitchen (red island and green walls). I just love Tina and her sister's homes. Their style is so similar I get them mixed up. I also love the black and white bathroom and have started to decorate my guest bathroom in black and white.

BJ, That sweet little bath that you love belongs to Sue. She re-did it last summer so it doesn't look the same anymore.

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

BJ, I am glad cargol knew who's bathroom that was. it was driving me crazy for a couple of minutes. Because, I knew it was a friends. oh, I am getting old. I have always loved your home. And I agree the others are beautiful. I do love to go for a evening drive. LOL Shame on us!!
Hugs, Terrie

StitchinByTheLake said...

Loved your pictures BJ - especially the kitchen. There's just something about white cabinets! Mine are stained wood and while I like them ok, I've always loved white ones more. blessings, marlene

Shelia said...

Sue said...

Awww BJ you are so sweet! Yup that is my old bathroom, I had it tiled this past summer so its different but I still think its cute! I deleted my blog for a while, just too overwhelming with all I have going on here, mainly miss Amelia! I miss you all tho and i'll be around visiting! Thanks for loving my little humble bath BJ! xoxo

Happy To Be said...

Oh BJ...loved the rooms girl...but I am dying here from laughing my butt off over the joke..that was to funny girl..I nedded that today thanks.. OMG...hugs and smiles Gloria

Ginger said...

I love that joke, too cute.
The rooms are so pretty, makes me want to redocrate right now. I love the kitchen picture the best.
I had to laugh at the Maxine tip at the start of your blog...that would work for me!!!
You asked can I get arrested for window peeping...there was something on our news last night that they arrested a guy who was window peeping and using his video camera to record the people inside. But he was on their property, right up at the window.
I guess I better make sure when I am window peeping I am not stepping on their property. lol.

Flowersnfelines said...

You're so much fun BJ. Love all the rooms too.

Raggedy Girl said...

Love the joke!
I have to confess I swiped the kitchen photo. The summer I am painting my kitchen cabinets and I love the white, red and green colors and I am going to put these in my kitchen. Great post.
