Pink roses.....*sigh

2/7/10
THIS is a REPOST FROM LAST SUMMER...
it's a ROMANTIC table, tho, and I wanted to share it again...
PLUS....
it has the magnificent COLOR OF THE DAY....FOR.....
**
Our host for this delightful, pinky day is none other than the fabulous, BEVERLY...
who is recovering from surgery.
Not one time has she missed hosting for us...
and I THANK YOU, BEVERLY !
There's tons of PINKNESS out there today so be sure to go by and visit every one that you can.
**

Most everyone that knows me,
knows I love BLACK & WHITE...
and, it's my theme for this day..
*


CUTE little cups.....
stripes and polka dots ALL in
black & white.....
Big Lots...a buck each...
**
Big Lots has some CUTE cups nearly all the time.
I love to shop there!!


A COUNTRY BREAKFAST
at SWEET NOTHINGS...
in
blacks and whites and candle lights.....

















i love candle light, ESPECIALLY in the mornings...
starts my day off with a glowing feeling...

*
this is a perk of retirement...leisure breakfasts...
after all those years of "hurry, hurry...gotta get to work"...
*

three little vintage creamers...
lined up like little soldiers,
carrying sweet smelling roses from my garden...
*

cute little cups help dress up plain white plates and a VERY simple table...

and add a little smile while they are doing it !
*


another vintage sugar bowl from my tiny collection...
wonder why i love sugar bowls...with little tiny handles on the sides...
and a nice little lid on top ?
I love them...I surely do..
*

our country breakfast this morning...
hot, sweet dunkin donut coffee...ummm...
hot and spicy OWENS country sausage...
hot buns, toasted, and covered in homemade strawberry perserves...
eggs, scrambled with peppers and extra sharp cheddar cheese...
and did i say COFFEE..?...my favorite part of any meal !
*sigh.......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Have a wonderful weekend....
I love you all !!

Just as cute as can be! The polka dots caught my eye first. Big Lots? Really? I need to go searching there again. I love this sweet table with all the white and pink and black and candles. Very appealing to me. I was going to join in on Pink Sat. for the first time tomorrow. Sounds like many this isn't a good week??

Gucci Mama said...

How lovely! Clearly I need to find a Big Lots. ;)

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

I love all your black and white polka dots. Thanks for doing the repost too. I didn't start blogging until Oct. so I missed the original post.
Have a wonderful weekend bj.
Blessings,

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Happy Pink Saturday Sweet BJ...
Sweetie I so love this post. Your polka dot dishes are just exquisite, and you table setting is so beautiful. I love the touch of pink, does it say "CLASS" or what? Really made the table pop.

Breakfast was lovely. I sure did enjoy that sausage. You are a great cook sweetie. Preserves were devine.

Have a beautiful day. Love ya girl. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

Kathleen Grace said...

Repeat or not, it looks great! i swear my Big Lots doesn't have the cute stuff I see other people getting there, maybe I don't go enough. That breakfast loos great too, maybe partly because I haven't had mine yet!

Theresa said...

Holy Moly, that pink just pops right out of the black and white! Love it dear BJ! Enjoy your Pink Saturday!

Ann Creek said...

dana said...

Hi BJ!
I LOVE the name you came up with for Jeanne's rooster. YOU cracked me up with YOUR comment!

Thanks for resharing this post...I loved every bit of it. Your dishes are wonderful...and I could smell that Dunkin Donuts Coffee (my favorite brand).

I loved your pink roses...they certainly gave me a Pink Sat. smile! Have a great day! L, Dana

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I have always loved pink with black, add in the polka dots and you've covered several favorites all in one post! Love this one!

jeanne said...

Good morning bj, you just cracked me up. HA! Elton John it is...

I haven't seen this post so it is all new to me. Beautiful, every photo. Love the roses. I can't wait for my knockout roses to bloom again. Pink of course. Black and white is always striking and I have never had anything black and white. Except some outfits I wear.

I also checked your previous post and the polka dot chair covers are perfect for polka dot loving you. The brownie thing is very funny.

Love, Jeanne

Pom Pom said...

Hi BJ! I love all that black and white. I have a black and white floor, black and white wallpaper and white cupboards with black china knobs so I guess I am drawn to it just like you! Wow! That's some breakfast. I had pink cake for breakfast and now I feel a little sick! Yikes! Happy Pink Saturday!

Designs on 47th Street said...

Thanks for your visit BJ. I saw somewhere that Beverly was having surgery. Not sure what I read that made me think it wasn't going on today. I guess I'm too late to join in with my pink post for today.

Mary said...

What a grand post, bj. I finally made it over here. Your tablescape is gorgeous and that plate of goodies is responsible for my downfall this morning. I hope you have a rosey Pink Saturday. Blessings...Mary

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Yummy, can I come by for breakfast, BJ? It sounds and looks delicious! I like polka dots too! Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Pink Saturday and enjoy your weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Lovely china and pink flowers for Pink Saturday. Thanks for sharing.

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh...how those pink roses accent your black and white dishes. I adore creamers too, something about how little and cute they are! And I love a nice smelling candle burning in the morning if we don't have a fire in the fireplace or stove. Mmmm...mornings!

Your breakfast looks delish! ;-)

Black and white is awesome and those pinks just perfect! I can't wait to see/read your post on your winnings! Looking forward to it! Jenn <><

Cozy Little House said...

Black and white is like the "little black dress." Good for all occasions. And can add any color to it.

Breakfast! My favorite meal! I prefer going to breakfast than dinner, any time.
You do such a great job of making everything look so delicious! REAL food and you can almost taste it with those pictures! YUM!

Thank you for your sweet comment on my home..but I need to update and have NO idea how to do it as I love my junk. I really do. I watch you carefully as you are one that has the things I like the most.
I get very self concious.
Thanks bj. You made me feel good..but not sure I decorate for me...totally. Daughter was really kind this time, not that she isn't always..but she gets out there and moves in circles where things are kept right up to date and after watching you...I do need to make some changes I guess. :)
I LOVE your home!
Hugs,
Mona

Pom Pom said...

Hi BJ! I had to come back and tell you that I'm not sure much of my kitchen is on my blog. I never take pictures if the counter tops have this and that scattered about! Ha ha! Maybe I'll get all industrious tomorrow morning and "go to town" on the kitchen. Then, I'll take a picture and let you know. Smile.

Beverly said...

BJ, it all looks so pretty - and delicious. I look forward to leisurely breakfasts and retirement.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear friend.

Janera said...

Love it! Love it! Hope to see you soon.

Okay - now I'm soooo curious ... can't wait til next Pink Saturday! Are those terra cotta pots and the wire basket as cute in person or cuter? :) Jenn <><

Phyllis AROUND THE HOUSE said...

I love the black and white with that shock of hot pink, just so current and perfect....I'll be right over for that breakfast. I keep meaning to ask you if you really love that dunkin donut coffee, I don't care for the brand we use and I keep meaning to ask you because it is alot more expensive then the others, I will however take your word for it and go for it if you think there really is a big difference...thanks my friend, come on over for a visit...Phyllis

CARMELINA LOUNSBURY said...

I'm beginning to think you just enjoy teasing me with your cute dishware and yummy breakfasts. I mean, who eats like that nearly every day? It's no fair.

Can I move in with you? Please?
