A VERY BUSY TUESDAY....

THREE OR MORE, hosted by TAM at THE GYPSY'S CORNER
*
THREE little bathing beauty grands....
BAILEY, DEEDS and ANDREA.....
We were on the Grand Caymen Islands, last October,
and having the time of our lives.... *gulp..**sighhhh

WORK OF THE POET is hosting this RED day...
*

THANKS, DIANE
****
*
OK..I know I've shown this quilt before but....
*
People that read me very often know how much I love the color RED...
I have THREE OR MORE quilts and a lot of them have red ....
This RED and White one is from J.C. Penney
and I am totally and forever in love with it.... why...I sleep with it every night !! ;)
*
This work of art is a treasure my mother made years and years ago..
It hangs in it's PLACE OF HONOR in my dining room...and brings such cheery thoughts
every time I glance at it.
My mama was so SO good at every thing she did....*gulp
O, and up there on the little shelf...
my THREE OR MORE little Willow Tree people.
*
This is one I've shown before that MOI made...
It's not fancy, by any means, but I love the cheery fabrics in it...
I am in the mood to make another one......
.....in the fall, when it is cooler !!
Waaay too hot right now to get all snuggled into a quilt !
*
This one is a 2ND TIME AROUNDER....
I bought the vintage, finished quilt top
off Ebay and put it together with the batting and backing...
then machine quilted it...
I wonder why anyone would want to part with such a piece ??
*
These THREE folded quilts usually stay stacked on my
2ND TIME AROUND, wicker bed tray...thrifted from a garage sale.....
*
This little beauty is added 'cause...
One....she has RED in her hair and on her little precious feet....
*
Two....I have MORE THAN THREE....*grinning
*
and three....She can be a 2ND TIME AROUND girl since she is my daughter's daughter...
and MY granddaughter !!
***
NOW....how's that for milking it to get THREE memes in !!?

FOR SOME REASON, I can not get into Diane, A Pic. Is Worth A Thousand Words, to link up. I keep getting a window that says "Can not 'something', Will Abort"
What's with THAT ?? I'll try again tomorrow morning....

Stacey said...

BJ, your bedroom is gorgeous. I wish you were here to help me hang some things on the wall. I just got some new mirrors and everytime I add things to the wall it feels like too much. Truth is that I have far less than most people.

I've had that abort message before. I think it's a blogger/internet explorer issue. Try again later.

I want the baby ... my gosh! she is gorgeous. Oh, sorry, your decor is very nice ... but I still want the baby! Chuckle ... TTFN ~Marydon

Becky said...

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

BJ..My dear GIRLfriend....I love your post...great one to share with all the GIRLS.....looks like the iron bed with the beautiful quilt should be in a girls room! Sigh...after posting my Blue Monday post I was sad to not et around to see all the girls! And hey who is that precious little girl in the last pic? She is total...girly=girl...love the bow! Oh my...do you realize BJ that I just and rambling here...like a crazed girl(lol...to many sex on the beach perhaps???) and if I type one more sentence with the word girl...I'm gonna bust into girly tears! Sigh...lol....you see there is only a 90 percent chance....but GIRLFRIEND...it's a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carrie said...

Your decor is beautiful and very pleasing. The quilts are special; thanks for sharing.

Blondie's Journal said...

BJ,

Your grandchildren are adorable, and shame on you for using that sweet little baby to get your Ruby Tuesday in!!

Your bed looks so comfy!! I love a well made bed that looks inviting. I try to do that with all my bedrooms. When I see a bedroom with snuggly quilts, blankets and pillows, I know they must be a little like me. I love all your quilts and I like how you have your mother's quilt displayed in the dining room~it's beautiful!

Have a great week, BJ!! :-)

xoxo
Jane

Barb said...

Great post BJ!!

Love all your reds.
My faves are the top quilt on your bed, lovin' that.
and of course your last red. Being a red head and a grandma, I am a bit partial to those sorts myself.

thanks for coming by.
blessings,
Barbara Jean

Lorna ~ Lace and Ivy Cottage said...

BJ, What a lovely collection of quilts! But I think I'm lovin' the picture of your grandbaby the best. She's just toooo precious!

Robin said...

Lots of great reds there, and I love the beach shot too.

Hootin' Anni said...

I must say that the very last one [tho the rest are great]...that last photo just melted my heart.

My Ruby Tuesday is posted. I'd love to have your company. Come visit won't you? Happy day to you greetings.

Beverly said...

Good morning, BJ. Girl, you were very creative with this post. You covered all bases, and it is great.

I love all of your pretties - granddaughters, quilts and figurines.

Brenda said...

Now you know I'm mad about quilts. I've started to buy that one from JC Penneys several times, but I have one quite similar to it I bought from Dillards a few years ago. I'd still love to have it. The one your mother made is a REAL treasure. Mostly the ones I've made have not been as fancy. I'm a "squares and simple" girl myself for the most part, though I did make a Dresden quilt and other patterns. Your granddaughter is very cute. If you need help decoupaging a door/table top, just give me a holler!

Picket said...

Morning BJ....love the quilts girl!!!! Those grands are just the best aren't they and the quilt that your mama made always touchs my heart girl...I think it is beautiful that you hang it in your dining room like that where it can be seen each time you and your family gather around the table...don't know about the computer thingy..must be blogger acting up...take care sweetie and have a great 4th!

Smilingsal said...

You certainly covered all the bases with this post. I love the grandchildren's pictures. Happy 2nd Time Around.

maryt/theteach said...

bj, love all the RED and the beautiful quilts! And that adorable little grandchild of yours! thanks for including Ruby Tuesday! :)

Gee said...

You luv red very much. All the quilts are real pretty. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

What a sweet post, BJ! Especially that last little bit, in the red bow!!

I changed to Mozilla Firefox and haven't had a problem getting into blogs since then. I think that's become a popular solution to the problem. I couldn't get in or got the same message you did, when I used Internet Explorer.

Julie said...

I love red! And that baby is just too darn adorable.

Oh, I switched to Mozilla browser too, and have had zero problems loading blogs.

Alice said...

As I've told you before, your mom's quilt is gorgeous. That one you made is lovely too. Love the bedspread.
sure enjoyed Saturday. Looking forward to another one with you.
have a great day!

Dawn said...

Love your threes and your reds. Quilts always make me feel calm and safe. Love them!

susan said...

Now that is some creative blogging to get a 3 for 1! I love your quilts and just in awe of anyone who has the talent and patience to do it! I can't blame you for sneaking that precious grandbaby in there--with or without the red bow :)

susan said...

P.S.--I am getting the same message at A Picture is Worth 1000 words.

Lady Katherine said...

I love all your quilts! Just love old quilts and new ones. The girls are so lovely! Sweet sweet baby with the red bow! I also love your white wicker tray, I got one last month like it except it was wood. Wish it was wicker! lol

Kim said...

You did good. I need more red in my house. I tend to like pink a little more.

Theresa said...

Love the quilts and the grandkids!

The Pleasures of Homemaking said...

The girls are beautiful! Amazing how you worked everything into this post! I love that quilt from JCP! I've seen it on a few blogs and I have it on my wish list! I adore the quilt you made! I've always wanted to make a quilt!

I can't tell you how many times I've gotten that IE message...still. I thought they had fixed it...but no!

Happy RT, thank you for visiting.
