Simple table for a simple breakfast...

I LOVE starting my day with a new magazine..
 and even better if I have TWO new ones...
:)
..just playing around with photos in
PHOTOSCAPE...
 No fancy CENTERPIECE this morning..
just my pretty, juicy oranges...
morning orange juice in my vintage, tiny little glass...
...my loved vintage golden yellow flatware...
A pretty little candle just makes EVERYthing taste a little better..
I always feel very blessed to have
fresh fruit
for breakfast.
♥♥♥

Thanks to all the hosts..

IT looks like a lovely breakfast setting BJ. Love the black and white checked place mats. Sadly, my breakfast is usually me sitting in a chair in the living room, reading the paper, drinking a cup of coffee and eating a piece of toast....and trying to balance everything!
Hugs,
Penny

Good day my Dear friend..sorry I haven't been around much..not up to snuff right now..But I knew if I came by here you would feed me and give my OJ ha ha!! Love ya, girl...Hugs and smiles Gloria

Pat said...

That fruit looks so good, BJ. I didn't get fresh fruit in and snow is on it's way again!

Love your simple table for a simple breakfast. So pretty, as always.

We are so fortunate to have someone come in and paint. This is a father and son. Jim has known the father since high school. His daughter cuts our hair. He gives us very good bids. They are superb painters. I know for sure we would not be able to do it. One ceiling is 10 foot, the others are 9 and the hearth room has a 17 foot hip. The living room is 17 feet, too. J's arms give out pretty quick since he had the surgeries.

We are loving the gray.

BJ,
Simply adorable! I see your black and white scheme, too cute! Yes, "Mr. Ed" and I are enjoying more fresh fruits, also. I love every fruit to eat. . .except pears! "Mr. Ed" loves pears. . .but not much else! HA!Menu planning and dining On Crooked Creek can be very interesting at times!

Thank you for stopping by with your sweet visit! I'll be waiting at the door next time.
Fondly,
Pat

Debbie said...

Isn't it wonderful to start the day surrounded by your pretties and enjoying your magazines :-) You are a gal after my own heart! I am so glad I found you in this vast blogosphere!

Debby said...

You take the greatest pictures.
All your meals look so yummy. Loe the colors you use in your home.

Alycia Nichols said...

Very pretty breakfast table. Makes me want to put on my jammies and curl up!

Jacqueline said...

BJ, you and I could enjoy reading magazines over breakfast together! I am such a magazine-aholic! My breakfasts lately have been protein shakes (trying to take off those holiday pounds). I would much prefer yours, give me the bacon and biscuits, juice and fruit! Yum and sooo pretty too.

Debbie said...

I'm another one who loves to enjoy a new magazine over a meal. For me, it's usually lunch.

Loving your breakfast table with all the black and white. The checked place mats and the little ribbon with the polka dots look great together.

Wish I knew how to do photoscape. I'm such a dunce with stuff like that.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love fresh fruit, too and it is a blessing to be able to enjoy it year round! Love new magazines...your candles and your pretty table! ♥

Marigene said...

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! Your black and white with little hints of pink is lovely, BJ.

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

If we lived close, I would be over there in a "hop, skip and a jump" to share that pretty breakfast with you, dear Beeej!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

BJ, this is just the perfect breakfast setting. LOVE it! I adore your black and white check and that cute mug that says "joy" on it. Where did you find that cute thing? SO cute! And I just snuck a bisquit before I hope back on the TabThurs Train. Hope you don't mind!

Happy Tablescape Thursday to you...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida said...

I'm with you, I love new magazines. Your table is beautiful. You have me craving biscuits and bacon!

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Hi BJ!
I love your 'camera eye'...you take such fun and interesting photos! Love your little juice glass...my parents had ones like that and I loved having my juice in them. Very cheery. Mmmm those biscuits look delicious...nice and tall just the way I like them. I'm with you...having a new magazine to sit and enjoy is a real treat and I have one to thumb through in the morning..yeay! I hope your day was a good one.
Maura :)

Kathleen said...

Every meal looks great at your house!
I only get the mags when they are deal of the days...so 3.99 for a year!

Zondra Art said...

Breakfast looks very nice and taste!
Greetings and kisses.

Kathleen Grace said...

Your breakfast looks so good! I'm sitting here thinking about what I'll have for breakfast and seeing the bacon on the plate makes me think I have some bacon in the fridge. mmmm! I admit, just like Penny, I'm usually balancing a cup of coffee, a piece of toast and something to read.

Picket said...

Morning BJ..everything looks fantastic...sometimes the simpliest things are just the greatest and bring us more joy than anything. Girl I love getting new magazines...I know the whole neighborhood can hear me squeal when I reach in the mailbox and find a new one! Have a great day sweet friend...Picket

La said...

Yesterday, I wrote that Dr. Sanjay Gupta says our daily diet should include 7 differen colors. I see 5 in your breakfast. Good job, BJ!

I love your little juice glass. How cheerful is that?!

Have a great day, my dear. La

Theresa said...

YUMMMY, fresh fruit, a biscuit and bacon... my stomach is growling! Love your oranges as a centerpiece! Enjoy your day dear BJ, HUGS!

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Now...those warm flaky buttermilk biscuits and bacon [cooked crisp like I like] and the fresh orange juice...well, again, I'm drooling here!!!


Thanks for visiting me this week, I enjoyed your company.

Vickie Wiles said...

Good Morning BJ! I've been following your blog for quite some time now - this is my first time to comment. Just want to say how much I enjoy your postings. Also, I'm coming to your fair city next week for the Texas Ground Water Show. I live in Central Ohio so I'm hoping for some warmer weather in Lubbock! Have a blessed day!

Tricia@The Dull and the Dutiful said...

Such an appealing breakfast table! I love the little juice glass -- and I'm looking for black and white checked table linens myself. I agree -- LOVE the days when magazines are in the mail!

shannon i olson said...

Isn't photoscape fun? Lovely photos and everything else looks good too, andf yeah for magazines!

Your tablescape stopped me in my tracks and made my mouth water too. So simple, yet so delish looking. Makes me want to come for breakfast and a visit. I love the tablescape!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Such a pretty little mug! I hope there is a new magazine in my mailbox today. I haven't walked through the snow to check yet...I'll let my husband do that when he gets home. I think if I have a magazine and bacon...I'm a happy girl!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

I am not a breakfast person, but I could handle sitting there for a bite to eat and a cup of coffee. Pretty and warm.

Your juice glasses are darling BJ. And the meal looks yummy, there is nothing like a good home-made breakfast! ♥O

Entertaining Women said...

So glad to see an authentic juice glass. Most people have completely lost sight of the appropriate portion for juice at breakfast. Hurray for the 4 oz. tumbler. Thank you for sharing your lovely breakfast with us. Cherry Kay

Sitting here, still in my jammies, going to eat my boiled egg in a minute. Wow. Your breakfast table certainly looks a lot better than mine!!!
I'm so hungry...I can taste the bacon....whine, whine....
