DAYDREAMING...again ! *sigh

A new magazine usually gets me DAY DREAMING again...
SO SORRY this post is LONG...lots of good stuff here !!

All of these photos are PICTURES OF PICTURES from the magazine....
some are a little blurry...SORRY ABOUT THAT!

I am drooling over this beauty sooo much.
I just LOVE personality like this !!

Well, I pretty much DREAM about farm house sinks every night...
Isn't this one to knock your sox off !!
Over $500.00, tho...

Cute room full of personality...
doesn't even come CLOSE to looking like those furniture store showcases without the owners personality added......
I love the casual "somebody lives here and we love living !"

I love all the textures here...
and all the warmth I feel, just LOOKING at the photo



...and....I BELIEVE IT !!
"See, MR. SWEET, someone else has my exact philosophy !!'

...drool...slober...lust !!
O MY pretty I CAN'T STAND IT !!!!!!

O, yes, KATHY.... over there at KATHY'S COTTAGE....
I know YOU are lovin' it, too !!
See, if we would only DO it..there's lots of ways to
CLEAN UP CLUTTER in pretty ways...
*deep breath.....and heavy sigh.....

By the time I got to this A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E. bedroom,
I didn't even have any spit left in my whole, entire mouth...
I had just drooled it all over my keyboard !!
Isn't this a darling bedroom with those light, light blue walls....
*heavy deep sigh with spitless mouth !
I am about to start a redo of one of our guest bedrooms...
THIS is what I am going to aim for..
If I can only choose the RIGHT paint color...
Choosing paint colors has proven SUCH A TASK for me in the past.
I THINK it is going to be perfect and then......IT'S NOT...bwaaaaaaa..
I'm gonna go for it, tho!

I'm not linking this post with any meme...
I WISH there was a site for ...

Oh you have me pegged don't you sweet friend! I was just scrolling down through the post and just as I was thinking "I MUST find this magazine!", I scrolled a little further and saw your comment to me! I burst out laughing because I'm drooling right along with you!
Gorgeous. gorgeous ideas, and yes, I'll be looking for the magazine so I can spend a little special time dreaming too:>)
Love you to pieces!

Love your post!! I have a stack of Country Samplers decorating magazines that I can't part with!! They have such great photos, full of inspiration.

Oh My Gosh BJ...
Sweetie these are just the most beautiful rooms. I love the red buffet in the one picture also. Ofcourse you know me, give me red anyday I so love it.

Ilove the one picture that they had take a large ornate frame and made a chalkboard, that was beautiful, and I love the little display unit at the end of the bar in the kitchen. I would have never put that pale blue with the black and white checked however it is to die for. Oh my gosh. I wanted to paint my bedroom walls a really soft blue, I just had not invisioned the bedcovering. I think I just found it. How beautiful with my white chenile pillows would that be? DDG I would say. I am going to have to go and purchase this magazine, it has so inspired me. Won't DH be thrilled?

I love it BJ and thank you for sharing. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

Hi bj, I am dreaming too...of spring. We have an absolute white out here in the mountains. I usually lose my net connection when this happens. sigh.

I do love your pics and wonderful decorating ideas. I want to decorate the master bathroom. It is large and boring. I do have inspiration but not the energy to take it on. Especially in the winter. Come this spring I am on it. If I can breakaway from my quilting project. I am waiting for applique lessons. A day like today is why the class has not been scheduled.

Since we can't go anywhere I guess I will do some cleaning. I drew a heart in the dust on the entertainment center. LOL. I hate to dust. A good day to bake something huh?

Have fun dreaming and finding your blue paint.
Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

Now I have to run out and get that magazine! I loved all of those pictures you showed us BJ....drooling here too.

The light blue walls with the black and white checks are perfect! Do they mention the paint in the magazine? If not you could write/email them and ask...

Shelia said...

Morning, Dear BJness! Oh, I've got to got and get this mag! I love it! I'd much rather see 'real' room instead of those cold neat as a pin ones.
I love that saying too and it's my mottos!
The bedroom is darling. I love the pale blue walls! I think I want that wall color too! Oh, you're making me tired right now!!
Be a sweetie and hope you've got your spit back! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Becky said...

Hi Bj;

Hopefully my computer will last long enough to type this comment. See....with all those gorgeous pictures, I have drooled all over it!!!!!

I LUV the black and white bedroom, it's my absolute fav!!!!!

The Cookie Girl said...

Bonnie! I love this magazine. I must have it. Where did you get it?
I am still in the process of a kitchen Reno and this is definately my style too. The cabinets on the front are beautiful and I will be painting and distressing ours too.
I'm geeked up on coffee and can't sit still for all the creativity that you and Ms. Laura at Decor to Adore have sparked in me this morning. *Squeeeeeel* LOL :)
Have a beautiful and blessed day!

Manuela@TPOH said...

Those are all cute rooms! Some of them I recognize having pulled them out for inspiration. Choosing paint color is so hard!


Blondie's Journal said...

All the rooms are gorgeous, BJ. I would take any one of them gladly. And I so agree with you and the magazine, if you love something, put it out there. I have bunnies and starfish on my kitchen window ledge!!! Everyone thinks I have zero decorating abilities. Sorry...I love bunnies and starfish!

I am redoing 2 guest rooms this spring, so I am going to be trailing along behind you to see what you do!! ;-)


Stacey said...

I am in love with those twin beds! If I ever get both of these boys off to college, I'm going to copy that look. :)

Theresa said...

I think your sight IS sweet dreams! Love all of these beautiful pictures! You can get the little sample paint colors now to make sure you get the right one:) I should have done that when buy paint for my Sister's flooded house. I now have two gallons of the brightest yellow paint you have EVER seen! Have a blessed day and keep daydreaming!

Jeanette said...

Those beds make me day dream for certain.

Susie Q said...

Well now you have got ME drooling sweet BJ!
That copper farmhouse How I would love to have that. *sigh*
Each room is so pefectly wonderful and the last picture...that sweet bedroom is to die for!!
I usually pick up that magazine so I need to hop on over and get a copy!!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Don't you just wish you had a dozen houses and buckets of $$ so you could decorate each one differently? I love so many different looks and there is no way to have them all!

sissie said...

I am sending you over a big box of tissues right away, so stop that bawling and whinning. You already have a beautiful home, so those photos got nothing on you.

To tell you the truth I am drooling too. We always want more that's for sure.

thanks for such a lovely post. I love coming here to see you.


Mevely317 said...

Ooooh BJ ... now you've got me drooling -- after that kitchen sink and faucets. Don't suppose walking in my kitchen and GLARING at my offending stainless steel would make this magically appear?
Thanks for sharing this reverie!

Mhel said...

Hi! Found you on Paloma's blog. Congrats for being featured. I love vintage stuffs and I love your coffee table settings. Soo rustic and homey.The kind of life i dream of someday. The perfect setting to enjoy a cup coffee, laid back, and comfy.

Justine said...

Now you know I'm no decorator, but damn woman, these pictures had ME drooling! The copper farm sink? OmG! The black and white checked furniture? OmG! The black and white checked floor? OMG! And all those little splashes of RED!!!!

Girl, I LOVE that bedroom. If you can do something like that it's going to be brilliant! Are you friends with Artie? He's really good with color and could probably help you get that muted, smokey light blue.

Justine :o )
