MOSAICS YOU CAN EAT....;>)

Does the color RED make YOUR appetite BETTER and food more ENJOYABLE ?
It does for me...
yes, ma'am.....it surely does.

FOODS are so colorful, they make just as pretty mosaics as flowers.....

MOSAICS
are such fun to make...



I haven't learned how to make those really gorgeous ones yet..
but ......I'm working on it......
I love playing around with all the
different things you can do on PHOTO SCAPE. (photoscape.com)

I also LOVE FOOD...!!

Yes to the question about red..I love it in and around me. I love all these mosaics..so pretty! I have wondered, how people who love only white, like eating colorful food? Silly thing to think about I guess! Those cookies look awesomely wonderful too! Come say hi :D

sissie said...

Hi BJ!
Your edible mosaic has sure made me hungry. You did a wonderful job and I'm loving those yummy cookies.

hugs

Yummy, an edible mosaic. The cookies and pie look delicious.

Stacy said...

Your photographs are so pretty Mom. I think you should work for a food magazine!

Shelia said...

Hi BJness! Oh, yes ma'am, I do love red and yes it makes me want to come over to your house and eat! You've always got some good looking food around. Now you're doing a beautiful job with your mosaics. I to love Photoscape too and use it quite often.
Thank you so much, BJ, for your sweet comments! You're a doll.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Stacey said...

It doesn't take a mosaic BJ. Your food always looks wonderful!

Andi said...

Okay BJ...don't faint and fall over! It's me Andi and I stopped by to say hi and read some of your posts. What a sweet one this one is...I too love the color red and your photo collage is beautiful and positively yummy.

I checked my blog and it had been almost a year since I posted something...so I have lots to catch up. Now, pass the cookies please! ((Hugs)), Andi

Becky said...

Beautiful mosaics. I'm feeling hungry again. ~ Sarah

Lenore said...

OMG, you went overboard with the mosaics...and they are ALL sooooooo mouth watering!
I don't think I need any red to enhance my appetite!!!!....lol

Julie Harward said...

Good luck with the rolls and the BB bread..we each had two bowls of the ice cream tonight...very good! There is a Utube tutorial on how to make the Lion house rolls too..really helpful! :D

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Great pictures! Love the red and the blue and all the rest.

JEANNE said...

Hi BJ, I am loving the mosaics. One day I will figure that out. With my tech rep's help of course. That would be Beverly. Smile.

The food is just so pretty and I know it tastes good too. My daughter Christina, made your biscuits. Soon you will be famous. HA! I used the last of mine for strawberry shortcake and they ere perfect for that.

The plant sale at the garden club was terrific. I bought some mature rhubarb. I hope it flourishes. I love rhubarb pie so much.

Have a grand day,
Love ya, Jeanne

Queenmothermamaw said...

I love red for sure and food ya. Those are some of the greatest looking photos I have seen. I love all the different mosaic you are able to make. I am going to try out that Photoscape. I agree with your daughter, you should work for a food magazine. I visit NatGeo.com everyday where people send pictures into the Daily Dozen. I think you should do that. I am sick of seeing all the wild bugs and animals on there. Some great food pictures would look good.

Knitty said...

I always love your photos and really like these mosaics. One correction though, if I may.....it is photoscape(dot)org, not com. The (dot)com address is a photographer. Hope I haven't bothered you. I've made this mistake before myself.

Hi BJ,

Speaking of red, the fruit stand had the first of the season cherries this past week! Yum!

Always fun to stop by and see what you're up to!

Susie Q said...

You have it all don't you???: )
Love,
Sue

SmilingSally said...

I'd let you cook and bake for me any day! Happy Blue Monday, BJ.

Katie@LeBeauPaonVictorien said...

You are so right! Food makes just as beautiful of a mosaic as flowers!!! I never would have thought of that myself. ;-)
Now I'm hungry.....

Stella said...

Yes, I love red. In my house, what I wear and in my flower garden. Ok, I just need the recipe for those cookies. I know it's not polite to drool on the monitor but I can't help myself. I think you are doing a great job on the mosaics and enjoy seeing the food. Thanks for sharing.

Jacalyn @ rmebathproducts.com said...

Beautiful mosaics! Funny I just heard that you should wear red to the gym because you work out harder and avoid wearing it when you because you eat more! Go figure!

Hugs,
Jacalyn

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

BJ, your mosaics are wonderful and really make the food look spectacular! Red does conjure up an appetite and yours is no exception. I see your cruise is almost upon you! I bet you're looking forward to it! Hope you're having a beautiful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Cass @ That Old House said...

Everything looks delicious and I love the way you put them together with the 'notebook' look.

sweetpralinemadness said...

Seriously, this post makes me hungry. Who am I kidding...I'm always hungry, LOL.

I just finished posting about bread making. Do you know how to make bread? I'm looking for any bread making advice a girl can get.

P.S. Those cookies look awesome!!!

Grandma said...

Such bright and delicious colors. Your MOSAICS look so good, the pictures are so clear. I want to reach right out and grab me a cookie.
I love food, too. May to much! LOL

Jama said...

I love the colors, the food, the beautiful dining set....everything!

Ralph said...

Ruby all around does add to our appetite - be it in the food or in the accessories to the dining. Food is the backdrop, but so often the upside to dinner is the conversation and time together that is so special...

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh what yummy tablescapes you have. I haven't tried a mosaic yet -- one day I'll have to give it a go.

Kathleen said...

Well aren't you the little artist!
Are you going to go into blog withdrawal while on your cruise?? :)
I don't have any red in my house..but that may change soon! If I can find the right fabric, ie!
Wonderful mosaics, BJ!

Manang Kim said...

Food and flowers are beautiful and so your dishes too. Happy RRT!

Pondside said...

My kitchen is painted pomegranate red - and I'm sure it prompts the appetite! In the dining room the draperies are raspberry - more appetite enhancing! I think you're on to something!

Natasha said...

I love food and I love your mosaics! What was in those biscuits you made..oh I should say cookies. They look like they have lots of nuts! Yummmy!

Best wishes and happy week, BJ.
Natasha.

Diann @ the Thrifty Groove said...

Love the mosaics.....so much so that I now have to wipe the drool of my laptop!

Robin said...

I am totally craving cookies and sweets now! Fun RT shots.

Thanks so much!

Hootin' Anni said...
