WHITES and PINKS and POLKA DOTS....o my

AS USUAL....
 I wanted to play in
more than one meme...
*
This is ok to do, ya'll.
and ....it's tons of fun to come up
with different things that can be incorporated into ONE post.
*
I am playing with BEVERLY at PINK SATURDAY
and when I came across this adorable apron, I knew I wanted to showcase it's cuteness.

I also wanted to play with

Her fun meme is partially THEMED and this week it is
WHITES...

woo hoo...I LOVE whites.
If YOU like looking at whites, this is the place to go...

and, some of my FAVORITE THINGS are my white vintage mirrors in my entry hall.
So, I am also playing in LAURIE'S meme...

I love white sugar bowls....
especially when they have handles.

 I caught them in the morning sun....



This olden lampshade  became much prettier when I added the creamy white lace to it.
It's the little things, ya know...
This is a RED CLIFF piece that I bought years ago on EBAY..
I love this little white milk glass, hobnail basket...

**

Oh, yes...I'm not quite finished...
I do have some more
PINK..
WHITE..
FAVORITES..

**
***
A friend's brand new little baby girl...
I. AM. SOOO. IN. LOVE
*
She is the most beautiful little baby girl...
*

OOO, there's that adorable name again...
emma....
This little sweet BABY DOLL is actually
EMMALEE...
and, I could just flat KISS HER SKIN OFF....
OMGosh...she just takes my breath away...
*
I'll save ya a piece....
*****************************************************

Happy Pink Saturday, BJ! What scrumptious pinks you have today; especially that little baby girl! I love her name! I have a baby granddaughter on the way, Christmas Day actually, and her name is very close to Emmalee! I'm not allowed to tell though. Love your collection of white sugar bowls and mirrors! Fantabulous post! Have a great weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi BJ...I do like this Multi-Meme idea, so this Multi-Comment counts for the Give Thanks Party and Pink Saturday. My goodness that Sweet Emma is adorable and I know her parents, family and friends are Thankful for Her.

Lovely photos of your black and whites and that cake....yummy!

Susy said...

Whatever you do is always fun and entertaining, so it gets my stamp of approval. Pink, baby girl, sugar bowls and cake works for me. All cute as can be.

Did you truly want me to save you a piece of cake? You better get over here at the rate I'm eating ... chuckle!

Oh, how I'd die for that apron, BJ ... but I truly want the baby, what a gorgeous little pinkness princess. Alas, we won't be having any little bundles for a long time ... enjoy her for me.

Your whites are lovely.
Have a beautiful Thanksgiving ~

CONGRATULATIONS! How adorable is Emma! You must be beside yourself...

RE the china, what's not to like? A sugar bowl needs handles, definitely, and it adds that certain touch of Je ne sais quoi. Love the apron too. In fact, what's not to love in this post? Happpy Pink Saturday!

Rita said...

Lucky you! Your grandbaby is adorable;
heven't had one of those in a long time; my youngest is now 14. I miss holding a little one.
Happy weekend my friend.

Carol said...

BJ,
I do love those sugar bowls and the way the light hits them. I've fallen in love with white....
The baby is precious. The apron is awesome. The lace on the lampshade was an inspiration!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday! While I loved all your post, my favorites were the apron - what a creative way to tie it - and, of course, the sweet little darlin' at the end. What a cutie! Reminded me of my grandchildren when they were teeny tiny! :)

Maggie said...

Emma is just adorable. Oh such a blessing.

LV said...

B.J. an amazing variety of neat things for today. I love the apron, but most of all that precious baby. I have never attempted a Multi-Meme. I do good to get one thing up. You do it so well. Love your blog and look forward to your post. Blessings to you and family for the holiday.

Donnie said...

Those pinks and whites are really pretty but that little Emma steals your heart away. Happy Pink Saturday and also Happy Thanksgiving.

CHERI said...

That little Emma is beyond precious...so tiny. Hope all is well with her. I also love white but couldn't live without color. I like white accents but wouldn't want an all white room. Also love that polka dotted apron...of course, I love anything polka dotted!!!

Theresa said...

Love it all but that sweet Emma takes the cake:) She is beyond precious in that last picture laying so sweet! Have a blessed day and I'm coming for that piece of cake:) HUGS!

Marla @ Always Nesting said...

Yes, that is a beautiful baby and what an adorable name! I love whites also but can't seem to pull anything "together" that looks decent. You have a wonderful collection of sugar bowls.

Good Morning BJ. I love all of your Pink and White things you shared with us. I must say, you find some of the cutest things and have some of the best decorating I have ever seen. The Baby Girl is just so precious. That cake will go good right now with my Coffee. It sure does look good. I do love the Pink Polka Dot Apron. Reminds me of days gone by. I hope you and your Family have a "HAPPY THANKSGIVING" on Thursday. May GOD continue to Bless you and yours as well.

Love and hugs,

Karen H.

oh cute baby! Happy Pink Saturday. Hey I'm having a giveaway!

So pretty.. all of it!!

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Oh what a sweet "new Emma." :-)

We have an Emma, among our Grands. :-)

Oh my, I think I'm gonna' cry, when I see your new blog looks here. -moan- -pout- -giggles-

Yes I have tried the New Editor Templates, on my Test Blog, BEFORE Template Design page stopped working for me. But I was happier with the OLDDDDDDDDDDD stretch minima one I've had for ages.

But it too, may be "gone," when I put New Editor Template on one of my blogs. :-( Not sure.

This whole thing, is so frustrating. But my new blog geek friend is still trying to help me. I have to keep doing what he suggests, I guess.

I spoke about this, in an email to my best pal, and he will tell me something, in a while. And if worse comes to worse, we might pay a guy to come in and look at it. Eeeeek! PAY???????? You know that's "against my religion" to pay. -grin-

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

And yes, I'm on an iMac, and I love it. -sigh-

farmlady said...

Oh, that wall of white mirrors sends me over the edge..... and Emmalee is beautiful.
This is my first visit. I will be back.

WhatKarenSees said...

WOW, what a post, more like a pamphlet of lovely items photographed beautifully. Love the blue and white, so gorgeous. And the cuteness is adorable. But I have to say, I love your header and the quote underneath is PRICELESS. Thanks for my chuckle today!!!

SavannahGranny said...

Love all your beautiful whites. So artfully displayed. I must that sweet newborn is artfully displayed as well. Truly God's gift. Hugs, Ginger

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear BJ. That apron is just adorable. We all love polka-dots.

And, Emma is a work of art.
