RANDOM BLUES.....

I'M playing in BLUE MONDAY over at SMILING SALLY'S today...
Be sure to swing by and say hello to her and to all the others that have their BLUES out...just for you !!
**
THIS olden looking kitchen has long been a favorite of mine...( I am calling the greens here BLUE)
I love the chippiness of the paint...
the old styled sink...
the beautiful, sparkly chandy hanging above all the shabbiness of the kitchen...
HOWEVER...I often wonder, altho I LOVE looking at this kind of room....
could I REALLY live in one ??
**
I've never lived with CHIPPING paint...I've always leaned toward "freshly" painted objects...
hmmmmm.....I wonder if I would really like it, after all...
....i don't really know....
*
These silly "TEETH" treats were made by a friend of mine...
She got the recipe from PIONEER WOMAN...
...slices of apple, peanut butter and miniature marshmellows...
(SALLY, my shirt is DARK blue and....see that plate on the wall behind me?? :O)
My youngest grandluv, DEEDS, spent the night with me last night...
We snuggled and slept like babies all night...
She loves washing dishes...
*
She helped me make a pasta salad....
got the great recipe from DEB at HOWDY FROM COWTOWN...delicious!!

and some PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES...
**
.....we had a GOOD time !!

Hi BJ Sweetie...
Happy Monday sweetie. I have often wondered that myself about one of those kitchens. I am afraid I would be picking at it all the time, and would eventually get out a sander and be painting it fresh in no time at all.

I love your teeth. Those look like fun, and I will have to try those with my grandkids next weekend. Those would be fun.

Love the blue shirt sweetie. Yep that counts as blue.

Sweet Deeds could come over and do some dishes at my house. If she likes doing dishes for gosh sake, keep her.

Love your post sweetie. Have a great Monday. Country hugs, Sherry

Coming from an ex dish washing lil girl, it was sooo fun washing dishes, my Mom used to happily let me wash, till she noticed I wasted water! LOL You are one kewl Gran!!!

Julie Harward said...

I feel the same way about chipped paint, it gives me the creeps! LOl Looks like fun with your grand daughter and the salad and cookies look fun too! I should make some of those teeth, all my favorite ingredients and they are so cute! :D

I love that pic of that gorgeous Kitchen but from the glimpse of your Kitchen in the background, I also very much like yours! Those teeth were wild and great for kids! I have a dishwasher too..... His name is Joe!! LOL!!

Sounds like you girls had a wonderful time making memories! I think those teeth treats are adorable and fun!

I love the look of chippy paint, but I don't know if I could love with a room full or house full of it either....

Hugs,
Penny

Ann Creek said...

Love your little blue shirted gran, my girls love to wash dishes too. I have a few "chippy pieces", but I don't think a whole room would be good for me. Happy Blue Monday.

How fortunate your granddaughter is to have you as a mentor. Happy Blue Monday.

Sherry from Alabama said...

I'm with you, that kitchen is a beautiful place to visit, but I don't know if I would want to cook there. I love those teeth, they are too funny!

How is our little Deeds? My poor Amy is home sick with me today. While I hate that she doesn't feel good, I LOVE having her home with me. You had me cracking up at that picture of you with the big ole' teeth! I'm gonna have to make those for my kiddos. I got all the ingredients too!
xoxo,
Kim

This is my first comment to you.
I'm an avid reader of your blog... and have it on my list of 'Sites I Like' on my blog.
It is so delightful. SO DELIGHTFUL.

Today I laughed out loud when I saw you wearing those marshmallow teeth!
You said one time 'what's mine is yours' (in the way of pictures, etc.) so I'm going to put that picture on my blog today!
(Thank you.)

♥ Kathy said...

I love the silly teeth :D Happy Blue Monday :)

Nancy said...

What an honor that you contacted me!

Yes, you can use me Saturday. (What an honor.)

I need to have a blog follower list- yes.

Thanks!!!

Betty said...

I love the look of the kitchen but I wonder to if I wouldn't be find myself painting that chipping paint. The apple idea is so cute. Deeds likes to do dishes?!!!! Now that is a true find. I wonder if she will grow out of that? lol

Marice said...

The Muse said...

oh gosh i am giggling like a school girl, love the teeth! lol

Stacey said...

Hi BJ! I love that kitchen picture. I've seen it somewhere before and remember loving the old shelf above the sink. I've often wondered about the chippiness too. I love the look but it would probably bug me.

Those cute apple mouths would be perfect treats to take to my tutoring students one day. Have to remember those. :)

Mary said...

I love looking at that old, chippy kitchen. Charming.
Your "false teeth" are hilarious and sound delicious! I'm gonna make some ;)
Happy Blues~

Fifi Flowers said...

OOooh LOVE that first photo... FAB kitchen!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Love the new header! I think the apple teeth would be fun for my little grands, thanks for passing along the idea. As for chippy paint, I love seeing it in other's homes, but I could live with it.

Hi BJ! Oh my gosh, these silly teeth are the cutest, and funniest, snacks I've ever seen! Your pasta salad looks delicious too!... I LOVE that you have such great quality time to spend with your granddaughter!.. And she even helps with the dishes?! How very lucky, and how truly blessed you are! Happy Blue Monday! ((hugs)) ~tina

Small Reflections said...

I enjoyed your random blues and would LOVE a peanut butter cookie with my tea please ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Miss. Clippy said...

Three things I love about your post: that old kitchen is gorgeous, your granddaughter likes to wash dishes (I applaud her!), and those teeth treats!

Happy Blue Monday!

Those teeth stopped me in my tracks! I am still laughing!! :)

Kathleen Grace said...

I'll have some of those peanut butter cookies BJ. Am I really this far behind in your blog? I just checked my google reader and I see I have three whole posts unread! *sigh*, I've been so busy.
I often look at pictures of pretty rooms in a magazine and as I really look it over I realize it is pretty to look at but I wouldn't want to live in it. The kitchen here is a bit too chippy for me. Wouldn't you feel your house wasn't being kept up properly? I would!

Justine said...

Ooh, I loves me some pasta salad, and apples with PB is sooooooo yummy! And cookies! wAaaaaaaaaaaaa! You're killin' me, sis!

Justine :o )

Sue said...

BJ, I love the look of the kitchen, its cottage style, and chippiness. BUT.... There is no way I could live with the imperfection! LOL I am a girl who gets just a little upset if I get a ding or a chip in my furniture or woodwork! Love the little lips- when I first saw the pic of you with them I laughed out loud. Holy Moley- what did she do? is what I asked myself. ~grin~
Hugs, Sue
