My Rug is so Bright, ya gotta wear SHADES.....:>)

and I love it to the moon and back !!! 

It is SOOOO bright...
and happy...

and SOOO TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING I'VE EVER BOUGHT BEFORE....
AND ....I LUV IT  !!

This great room, right beside the amazing pool, was just
CRYIN'
for FUN...
COLOR....
WATERPROOF....
and, by golly, 
IT GOT IT....!! 

 REDS....ORANGES...BLUES...AQUAS..GREENS...WHITES




 I decided on the MEDALLION  design
over the stripes and flowers....
STRIPES...I tend to tire of quickly.
FLOWERS..love 'em......but.......


We haven't moved our dining table and chairs over yet....

they are gonna look so good on this cool rug.....




AND, it will "tone down" the rug a bit, I am sure....not TOO much, tho, I hope. :>)











Kathy and David  bought these pretty, colorful cushions for all their pool furniture....

and the rug I bought goes with them,
TO A TEE  !!!

Our pretty girls will be modeling SWIM SUITS
instead of PARTY DRESSES
very, VERY soon.

And, they might be 
BRIGHT....

"....keeping THE THEME...."
....ahhh.....gotta love it.


 David plays the most beautiful music...he has always been musically  inclined....
 and so good at any instrument he chooses.

He's sitting on his new brick firepit.
Mr. Sweet made the grill and other items for the pit.

Food, cooked over WOOD,
is OUT*OF*THIS*WORLD*

 What a fun, delightful and blessed HOME our son and daughter*in*law have given us.
We are so excited and can hardly wait to get moved over.

Here's our plan....

We turned our house over to a realtor last week...
we are going to stay in our olden house thru the month of JUNE...
if we haven't sold by then,
we will move into our new home and let the realtor take care of the sale.
We  are holding out for TOP PRICE.

PLEASE wish us luck...prayers....and.....advice.

Girl this is so you..bright,fun and colorful..Miss you sweet friend..can't wait to see your new place all done with the special BJ touch..Love ya girl friend..Hugs Gloria

Michelle said...

I love those bright colors!

Vee said...

That rug is so much better than I imagined...I was quite properly horrified when you first introduced it back along. It looks fabulous and is going to be so in keeping with the youth and vitality going on at the new place. Can't wait for you to get moved over...you're so ready to be there that you'll hardly feel a twinge. I think that might be one of the reasons The Lord has allowed a slower than we might have liked transition...you're perfectly ready now. Yup. Hold out for a good price and I'm praying that it'll go soon now that your heart is in your new home.

Miss Kitty said...

Great rug!!! So happy and fun to go along with with your new digs. You sound like a better sport than me about moving...it is one of my least favorite things in the whole world. BUT you are moving to a great place it sounds like.

Kathy Moreland said...

Sounds like a great plan, BJ! I love your rug, and am so anxious to see you moved into your new place.

I sure hope you find a good family to buy your house soon! I know how stressful that can be! LOVE your new rug...it's so nice to get something totally new and 'hip'! Sweet hugs!

sweet bj ... I think you made the right choice on the rug ... seems perfect for the spot and looks great with the lawn chairs. Love the lively colors. Seems that you are finally ready to turn loose of the olden house and move. Hoping your house sells quickly now.

Hi bj, We were in Fl again for our grandson's HS graduation and I haven't posted for days. We arrived home last night.

I too love the bright colors of your rug. The design is very happy and bright for sure. Go for it bj. Decorate your heart out. Have fun and enjoy the pool. I pray that your house sells soon.

Wishing you happy days my dear sister friend.
Love, Jeanne

I love the Father's Day card! Such a cute idea!
All the bright colors in the patio furniture and rug are wonderful for summer!

Irene said...

How I wish my boys were small again so that I can copy that Father's Day Card. That is a gorgeous rug. I know you will miss your old home but just think of all the fun times and memories in the new home. Exciting times in your neck of the woods. Take time from your busy schedule to enjoy these last days in your home before the move.

Keep the Faith, dear friend! I feel a $ale coming soon!!!
Prayers for you both!
Fondly,
