"Beautiful things in Blogland" OR "Things that blow my skirt up....."

In Blogland, every single solitary day,  I find something so beautiful,
sexy, cute, tasty or just downright AWESOME
and I save the photo/s.
I am VERY bad about forgetting to save WHERE I got the photos.
Sorry...I'll try hard to do better...
especially since I plan to do this often and randomly.
if I've used one of YOUR photos without permission,
plezzzzzzz don't sue me.
Every time I see this photo, it makes my heart race...
this adorable mirror lives over at THE LITTLE ROUND TABLE.
and I aim to have a mirror just like that.....
someday *sigh

"DELORES...ohhhh, Delores....just wanted to tell you that
this is just the most warm, friendly, beautiful and very relaxed setting, ever."
lucky lucky dinner partners...
you are sooo good as what you do.
 Totally taking my breath away here.
I mean, look at this, folks...
the textures, style, art of arranging..
AWESOME, I tell you !
Just not sure.
 I KNOW this beautiful, cozy and very warm looking spot belongs
SHE really knows her stuff..
Everything SHE does turns out beautifully and
talk about taking interesting and cool photos..
this lady knows how it's done.
I am SUCH a huge fan of her blog..
it is ALWAYS just full of magazine worthy EYE CANDY...
always !
Now, if I could get up every single morning for the rest of my life
and walk into THIS, I would just about DIE !
I love every single thing about this...
It looks to have concrete counter tops, which I would absolutely KILL for...
and a farm sink, set in concrete. BEAUTIFUL !
I totally LUV the wall color and the cabinets...the open shelving.
I love all the cuteness on the walls..
and it looks like she has a mirror over the sink, which probably doesn't have a window...
On second look...think it might be a painting..
I don't know...this kitchen looks ENGLISH COUNTRY..
is it ?
Isn't this a cute idea !
She has so many pretty ideas, you might like seeing her blog.
sooo pretty.

You can see this beautiful table and others at
When you go over, would you tell her bj said HEY ?
This is the prettiest sandwich I've ever seen....
and she has the cutest blog name...
You can get this amazing recipe there...and she is promising
a GREAT bread recipe soon.
THIS may be out of COUNTRY LIVING magazine,
but I pretty much COVET this look.
'Course, living out here on the plains of West Texas,
I have NO need for a BEACH sign.....
ahhhh, but I WANT one in that water blue color...
they are so stinkin' cute.

NOW, I KNOW for SURE where THIS photo came from....:))
I have used THIS recipe for years and it never fails me.
I'm serving it on my vintage ironstone little plate, along with the vintage golden fork.

Come have  a piece of  LEMON  MERINGUE PIE and...

Linking with:
FULL PLATE THURSDAY .....just dessert today, Helen...:))

Sarah over at Modern Country Style is hosting a new idea for a linky party. . .you might want to check it out. I think this is what she has in mind. Here's her address:
It's worth a "look see".

Rita said...

Great atmosphere here this morning; you really spoiled us with all these treasures you found in Blogland.

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

I can see why you chose these photos. Beautiful, each one! Now I have some new blogs to visit! Thanks for sharing!

Victoria said...

That white rustic kitchen with the stone countertops is to die for, you'd never get me out of there!!!

Anita@Theycallmejammi said...

Beautiful pictures...thanks for the eye candy. That pie looks so delish! and lady, that pic is not too shabby either ;). I'm off to visit the blogs attached to some of these lovely photos. Thanks for the tip BJ

Vee said...

Well look at that! It did work for you. Good. I finally had to make my header wider and that seemed to do the trick. Still, I don't like my header being so large. I'm not very techie, but I am a very good Googler. :D

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Thanks for the honor BJ! It's pretty special to see my pictures on another blog that gives me credit!! The wrapped frames pictured didn't come from me though. That one is a beauty. And that KITCHEN! Holy cow, I'm so with you on that one! There's just a wonderful energy over here. Lemon pie is my fav too! xx

shannon i olson said...

Great inspiration!! Thanks, I am headed over to Cabin and cottage to look around.

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Re: Your "Word Ver. Free Blog" button, which you told me about... Oh yes, I do so agree! *HATE* those dern Word Ver. settings!!!!

And I try to contact bloggers with them, and ask if it's a really necessary setting for them to have on. Some say yes, and why. OK, I understand.

Some say someone else told them to do it, but they may try blogging without that Word Ver. Setting. Hooray!

Some don't say anything. :-)

-sigh- What can we do? Understand, when people feel they neeeeed Word Ver. Just don't try to comment in blogs, which don't seem to give "a rat's patoootie", about whether we like Word Ver. or don't like it, I guess.


And I finally took the chance again, and took off my Comment Moderation Setting again!!! Hooray! I've only had one reader complain about Comment Mod., but when I have it on, I NEED it to be on. :-)

Gentle hugs...

Dolly said...

Ou I love every single have a wonderful eye for greatness!

Yes I'd love to come and have tea and pie with you!

smiles, Dolly

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Such wonderful eye candy! I know some of the blogs you mentioned but not all of them. Now, I am off to go visit them!

Shug said...

Again BJ...You make my day!
I must have that lemon Pie see that will be something to add to your blog tomorrow....I absolutely love lemon pie!
Blessings and Some sweet Hugs!

Theresa said...

Oh my goodness BJ, I swear I just might pass out from all of that beauty and have to be revived:) Love all of the pretties, but the frames with the music... GENIOUS! Thanks for sharing all of this beauty, HUGS!

Boo-Bah said...

BEAUTIFUL!! I adore the wonderful kitchen. I think every single thing pictured was wonderful. The lemon meringue sure isn't ugly either. Oh how I love lemon meringue pie. When I was a little girl one of my favorite things to do was to watch my mama make the meringue. It was always just lightly browned to perfection.
Now I am hungry.:)

Patti said...

I, too, love that mirror...I printed the photo out last year and thought "I'm gonna find me one of those to paint"!! And don't you also LOVE her kitchen - It's HUGE!!

PEA said...

I always enjoy seeing how others decorate and the pictures you showed us are just gorgeous!! I swear some people are just born with the flair for decorating. lol Oh yes, I knew right away which blog that lemon pie came from...hehe!! xoxo

Judi said...

LV said...

You are the best when it comes to finding beautiful things for your post. By the way, I can not find the beer biscuit recipe. If you go on the internet and look for Bisquick beer biscuits, I think that is similar to what I had. It was very simple with few ingredients.

Simone @ Doberman's by the Sea said...

The farmhouse kitchen is adorable.

Miz Helen said...

What a great day! I spent so much time at The Cabin and Cottage they had to ask me to leave...I just told them that BJ sent me. Now I have come back to your warm and cozy kitchen to enjoy your wonderful Lemon Meringue Pie. Thank you so much for bringing you great post to share with us at Full Plate Thursday and please come back!

Coloradolady said...

Ann-Marie said...

I really enjoyed the photos. The living room in the second pic and the rustic kitchen are so lovely. I'm your newest follower- I'd love it if you paid me a visit at Brambly. Have a wonderful evening.


Brambleberry Cottage said...

Oooh! Sooo many pretties to look at. And I'm right there with you on that European kitchen, Miss BJ. I love it! Unfortunately, it would never fly with my Yankee. However, he would say a hearty "Amen" to your lemon pie. ;)

Thanks for linking to the party. I hope to see you tomorrow night for Funny Faux Pas Follies.
