NOTE CARDS by bj.....

THE BLUE PICNIC BASKET
 

"Tailgating just makes any football game MORE FUN.."




"An INDOOR picnic can be just as fun as the OUTDOOR ones....
 It's not about WHERE the picnic is.... not even about the FOOD.... 
It's about time spent with someone you love, be it lover, spouse or the entire family."

You make everything more pretty and more fun, BJ!!

I enjoyed that old quote by Jack Nicklaus - I lived in Dublin, Ohio for 20 years before I moved to the city over the river to the east by 12 miles, haha. JN did an amazing job taking old farmland and making it into one of the nation's most prestigious and gorgeous golf courses - Muirfield - where every spring a PGA Tournament is held (and televised!)

I volunteer/worked it for ten years - a beautiful and fun place to be around here when the tourny is at large.

Those are great. I love the blue picnic basket!

Connie said...

One of my favorite words in the entire dictionary is, "Picnic".
Your basket and note cards are lovely . . . fun, fun, fun :)

Summer has past gone ahead. Now we have to plan for holiday seasons.
but we still can enjoy the tail end of it in outdoors or just hang out with the family and see a movie in a home theater.

podso said...

I really like this set of cards and how you have the picnic basket in each one (and such a great color!) The third one is especially good as it shows the basket and its wear so well. Nice reminder of summer!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Yes, yes, the picnic basket is lovely..but you already KNOW I love RED! Ok..so..I have to ask you, WHICH house are you decorating for Halloween...and will be you be moved in and settled by Halloween?
Can you tell I am feeling just a tiny bit insecure here? LOL :):):)

Jeanne said...

Picnic basket photobomb! It has such personality. Great summer notecards.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Ok, ok, I'm back for a second look at the picnic basket...I'm thinkin' I love it! Honest! I never choose blue for anything..but what a fine, cool, and lovely Summertime color..How pretty it's going to look out by your pool...and isn't that color in your new rug? I keep thinking there is a touch of it...
Anyway..I DO like that basket and it is gorgeous with your little Summertime picnic display!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hi BJ!
LOVE that blue picnic basket -- great inspiration for your note card series.
And I'm thinking that in the old days when you could find great JUNK at a dump, that I might just have been up for a picnic there! Nowadays, too much garbage bureaucracy. :-)
Best -- Cass

Can I come along to your picnic BJ - you make it look so special!
A wonderful set of note cards as reminders of warm lazy days spent with family and friends stretched out of the rug chatting and having fun!
What could be nicer?
That blue basket is adorable!

I love your blue picnic basket! I have been looking for the perfect old basket for a little bit now. I love picnics as well and you have captured it well it your pictures. Stopping by from notecard Wednesday. It is always fun to stop in and see what other people are seeing through their camera lens.

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

What a pretty blue basket. It would make a lovely addition to any picnic.

I noticed your comment at the top of your blog about Google+ comments and getting the 'no reply' return.

Mmmm...I noticed that too and wondered how to reply to a person's comment.

Wishes for a happy day!
Brenda
