An English breakfast of
crisp fried bacon.
and, a little something SWEET...of course!!
We'll start our breakfast, here by the windows..
Bright and warm and comfy....
We have to eat ALL OUR EGGS and BACON
before we can have a cinnamon roll....
Not really...
I happen to like a sweet roll WITH my eggs and bacon, thank you very much !!
Do you see my
Darling little CUPID'S ARROW HEART bandannas
that wanted to be VALENTINE NAPKINS when they grew up ARE.!
My darling daughter, STACY LEIGH, brought this cute mug
to me from the VERY city....
NEW YORK CITY, that is.
The smaller NEW YORK cup, with the cute handle
was given to me from my grandson, DREW.
He had a wonderful GREAT AMERICAN ADVENTURE a few months back,
visiting many historical sites and cities...New York City being one of them.
I am so proud of him, going on this long road trip, only 20 years old, alone.
It was something he had dreamed about for a long time...and I LOVE
that he WENT FOR IT....
He met up with friends along the way...but mostly it was a ME time for him.
I am working on a post, with awesome photos he took of his adventure.
You will see it soon. :))
No Valentine post of mine would ever be complete without my
from KATHY. THIS is a dreamy photo...
don't you think ?
I love the slight blurring effect....
I hope your day is

Thanks so much to all the lovely hosts...
and thank YOU for coming by SWEET NOTHINGS today.
I love you all.....

Your breakfast made me hungry.. Love the geranium.. is it lipstick pink? I LUV NY too and it's right in my back door. I don't go nearly as much as I want, but for a rural girl, it's pretty much the type of place that you go to visit and then enjoy going home, that is if you're visiting some parts of the city. The sites are fantastic though and filled with architecture and history!

I am sooo glad that I started my bacon before logging into blogger because your breakfast looks delish and I am HUNGRY!. The only thing missing are the cinammon rolls (my favorites BTW). Well back to my bacon!
Have a wonderful Sunday
Hugs, Sue

So pretty. Love the sausage and eggs. I made cinnamon rolls for breakfast today, just didn't do the eggs and sausage. Shucks, I sure missed out. Your tablescape is stunning. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

I see you toooooo, are "Playing In Your New Fonts"! ,-)

I have only [so far] had one complaint, about my hand-writing Font. And I probably won't keep it forever. But for now, I am having fun with it. :-)

I probably love it so much, because my own handwriting is terrible now days and I so wish my handwriting was like my Font.

But I did have to take off even the not-too-noticeable fancy Background I have been using. And just have a form of off-white standard background. My "handwriting" was hard to read, on my former music sheet Background.

Hugs and ♥'s...
'Cause Valentine Day is coming!

SmilingSally said...

This is YOUR holiday, BJ, with all the red.

I have a challenge next week fitting blue into my Valentine's Day greeting, but I'm ready.

Every time I visit you, I wish to be your neighbor. Why, I'd drop by, and...

Shug said...

What more can I say BJ...I simply love it all!


My Dream Canvas said...

This looks so good, I can't remember when we have had real bacon in this house. Hubby has to have turkey bacon-really I just don't think there is such a thing-who knows what that stuff is!LOL

Anonymous said...

No breakfast is complete
Without something sweet!


A damsel who loved shades of red
Discovered she’d been sore misled;
She had no more rose,
Nor blush for her nose—
If she finds the thief, the guy’s dead!

Hello my Texas friend..

I've dies and gone to BJ's breakfast heaven! Hehe! Darlin', you certainly did make a beautiful Valentine breakfast table! Ohhh...I love that pretty heart's gorgeous! And...I loved all of your photos...especially the "dreamy" one! Sooo pretty, my friend! Thank you for sharing with us!

Are ya'll keeping warm down your way? My youngest daughter is just north of Dallas. She is in an RV because of her hubby's work and said that she had to get out her hair dryer and warm up the door so that she could open had frozen shut! I just cracked up! We only made it up to 2 degrees here in colorful Colorado today...brrr! I suspect that this lates cold front that we've had will be making its way down to you in the next day or two...better get ready, Darlin'!

Warmest wishes and Happy Valentine's day, my sweet friend!
