Did your hubby really say that? Sigh. Lucky girl. But I have to agree with hubby's first reaction. It's ugly. ROFLMAO

What room is that that you have PINK curtains?

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Awwwwwwww...now that man is a "KEEPER"! But I guess you knew that already because you've kept him around for a long time. I can tell he's really smart too because a smart man doesn't "mess with the nest." :)

Smelling Coffee said...

Hi BJ~ What a sweet man! "If you love it I love it" - priceless! I'm trying to catch up on your blog, but am having computer issues and it's moving so slowly! I've missed you.

Mr. Sweet Nothings is a very wise man! His answer was perfect and will live in your heart forever. Does he give communication-with-wife lessons? He should! ~Adrienne~

Lady Katherine said...

I love the hamper! Need a basket material to cover the hole? I have plenty, as I make baskets. Oh, but then you would have to repaint it! I would just keep the lovely hole, for now you hubby loves it too! So Sweet of him!

I have you featured on my blog this week. I love your Vineyard post so much I wanted all to see! I sort of swiped your picture, hope you do not mind, it just for the week. If you do let me know! Love you: I said ... he said!

Envoy-ette said...

Elizabeth said...

Of course if you love he he does too, BJ! A little hole just gives the dirty laundry a better chance to breathe. You did a great job creating a vignette with it.

caren said...

How blessed you are to have such a sweet hubby! My is like that too (thank goodness). I'd be home for dessert too!

Love the MacKenzie-Childs in your previous post - I'm a huge fan.

BJ Isn't it nice to have an agreeable husband! Roy would have said the same, but there would have been that look in his eyes that said I just don't undestand.

I love your hamper.


Pruple hugs,
Barbara

Claudia said...

Oh BJ, I love this post! It sounds so much like what my husband and I say to each other! These guys are the best, aren't they? I love that hamper and would have grabbed it myself! Happy Pink Saturday!

♥Mimi♥ said...

Had the Grands for a few days so I am a day late and a dollar short for Pink Saturday! We just had so much fun and time got away from me☺

But, I didn't want to miss all the pinkness that brings sunshine to my weekend. And, another cool, sun-less day. My gardens look horrible this year. Nothing is growing...sigh.

So, your sweet blog post is cheering me up! Thanks so much for giving me something pretty to look at other than the dark clouds outside my kitchen window.

Awww, that is so sweet...I probably would have bought it too. Hope you had a great Saturday.

Susie Jefferson said...

What a sweetheart - he's definitely a keeper, lol. And that wicker basket thingie has a lot of potential...

Happy Pink Saturday! (Big apologies, I know I'm late, but I've been overwhelmed with deadlines and teaching classes Sat & Sun - and only now just getting a chance to go blog-hopping).
