WHILE VALENTINE'S DAY IS USUALLY DESCRIBED AS A DAY FOR LOVERS....
SWEETHEARTS...
SPOUSES...
.... there's so many MANY different kinds of love..
for CHILDREN....
GRANDS....
PARENTS...
F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
only to name a few.....
***************
I am so thankful for my many friends...in real life and in Blogland..
The ones I've met blogging have become very dear to my heart,
and I dedicate this VALENTINE post to YOU...!
**
HAVE A BLESSED, WONDERFUL AND FUN DAY !

**************
O, and speaking of friends...

My sweet sister friend, JEANNE of BACKYARD NEIGHBOR
sent me a PRESENT...
a "JUST BECAUSE" present
and I am just beside myself....
**
FIRST...
take a look at this BEAUTIFUL little fingertip towel...
There's 2 of them and they are really beautiful..
I knew the minute I saw them exactly where they would go....
**

RIGHT here on my ROOSTER cabinet....

thanks so so much, JEANNE...they are just PERFECT !!
**

NEXT....THIS adorable TABLECLOTH....
RED and WHITE with a tiny bit of COUNTRY FRENCH YELLOW
**
RIGHT AWAY, it brought out the COUNTRY FRENCH in me
and I just HAD to do a little table setting......
**
THIS tablecloth could not have been more perfect for
my dining room, JEANNE...
You know me well, sweet friend.
**


And...look how cute it looks over there...hanging out with my
olden display rack that wants to be a BAKERS RACK when it grows up...
I JUST LOVE IT, JEANNE...
**

THANK YOU SO SO MUCH...FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART...
**

I MADE chocolate fudge for you today...
chock full of PECANS off my PECAN TREE...
With all the cold and snow, I could probably MAIL
YOU a piece without it melting...
but...guess you'll just have to "IMAGINE"
how good it is...
YOU know I've been doing without sugar for about a month now...
*
LET ME JUST SAY...
*
THIS CANDY MUST BE THE BEST candy in the whole wide entire world !
all the sugar nearly...NEARLY...made my teeth hurt ..
but not bad enuf to make me stop eating it !!
HUGS....

Oh BJ Sweetie...
Happy Valentine's Day. I love your gift of love. The little fingertip towels are just beautiful and I so adore the red checked tablecloth. You know me, I love red anything and everything, especially if there are cherries involved. I love the little threads of golden yellow. You sure made it pop with your beautiful accessories. The lit candle was beautiful.

Now that darn fudge, oh my gosh girl, I am knocking on the door would you please let me in? Love it. I get my fresh pecans from Moma and Daddy's trees each year that I go home to visit. They sure put store bought ones to shame don't they?

Well sweetie have a beautiful Valentine's Day tomorrow. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend. I so love to come and visit, and you are always so tolerable of me when I just drop in on you. I love it. Thank you for being just you BJ. You are the BEST. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

I'm playing catch up, so I read your "pink" post too...your table was so pretty, love the bracelet bling!

Happy Valentine's Day!

And the fudge..oh my, wish I could drop by for some..Yum! I so appreciated your sweet kindness to me today, thank you! We are new friends, but I just love you! Have a goof Valentines day and come say hi any time :D

bj! Those towel are just beautiful! How sweet of your friend to gift you with such beautiful things! They certainly fit right in! The tablecloth! It would go with my new dining room perfectly too. Of course I loved everything I saw! You would think that in all this time, you would put something somewhere, do something, that I wouldn't like. But nope. LOVE your taste in decor! LOVE it!

That's what it's all about. Loving one another, being kind, thoughtful and of course sending one beautiful litte towels!! :)

Have a wonder Valentine's Day! Sweet daughter that lives in Emilie Barne' home is giving all of the ladies in our famiy a Valentines tea...so that is where I am off to right after church! Can't wait to see what she does!
Hugs and love to you...

Jeanne said...

Hi BJ, my cousin Bob just left to go home after a month of visiting with us. I love him dearly but he is a very needy guest. Entertaining him was a challenge because many days of the past month we have been snowed in. We couldn't even go to a movie. What's left??? CARDS!!! Oh and cooking, lots of cooking. LOL.

Thank you for such a sweet post about the simplest of gifts. I am so glad you are happy with them. I love how you did your table on the tablecloth. Bringing out the bit of yellow was a perfect idea. I knew the tablecloth would bring out the best tablescape. Something you are so good at... bringing magic to a lovely festive event. I want that fudge so bad. HA!

I do love you my dear sister friend. Happy valentines Day today and love to you always, Jeanne

PS: I spoke to Beverly and she is kind of puny but doing well. She has been through so much.

Dena said...

Oh BJ, you had me at the Chianti ;) Hehehe! I hope that your Heart day is filled with love :)

XOXO,
Dena

Mmmm, I love pecans like nobody's business. My dear mom used to pick a lb. of them for me every year at Christmastime. I can see her in my memory picking out all the hulls. And Texas/Oklahoma/Georgia pecans are the best!
