October Note Card Party and many other GREAT parties to visit....

 Time once again for our friend, VEE and her OCTOBER NOTE CARD PARTY.

 In SPREADING THE WORD of the
FIGHT FOR BREAST CANCER,

my cards, this month, are a glorious 
"PINK"


"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."
Audrey Hepburn


"I believe in pink.
I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and...
I believe in miracles."
Audrey Hepburn



"Opportunities don't often come along. So when they do, you have to grab them. "
 Audrey Hepburn

 

" Paris is always a good idea."
Audrey Hepburn
 *********************************************************


Please remember to schedule your annual mammogram SOON...
and take a friend with you for her to get hers, too.
THEN
you can share a fabulous lunch together.

Hello BJ
I think you've got the same book on Audrey as I have - I know all those quotes!!!

A beautiful story for a set of note cards - perfect to send to your family and friends - what is nicer than a mug with "joy" on it!

Gorgeous cards! I love all the pink, and I love the quotes that go with them. She is a favorite around here. Miss Whimsy has a big old Audrey painting in her room at the sorority house.

Love all the PINK!! Great photos and wonderful quotes- that Hepburn was a smart lady- Paris IS a great idea!

Britta Hill said...

I love your quotes by Audrey Hepburn - and your photographs. Pink is my most beloved colour, you'll always find one tiny (or not so tiny) dot on my wardrobe of the day.
Fighting breastcancer: so important. In Germany we have a Screening program that triese to reach all women.

Gayla said...

Beautiful! I wish I could buy these for my friend. She is actually the daughter of one of my best friends and an Audrey Hepburn fan... She's expecting a little girl! Do you know how I could get these? Or even... Could I gave your permission to actually make them on my old Printshop.program?

W. Latane Barton said...

A great reminder, bj. I had mine done back in the summer. The report was great so I feel blessed and pretty doggone pink!!

Lavender Cottage said...

Perfect note cards for this month, that pink donut is calling to me! I like the mug too, it could hold a hot cup of tea.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I'm all in awe.

Your Cards for the Cure are awesome bj!!

Jeanne said...

Good morning bj, We can't say enough about the need to watch out for breast cancer. I do believe talking about it on our blogs is the best reminder. Good for you for keeping watch for this dreadful disease. Your note card is awesome.

Your photos knock my socks off, as always. I do hope you are more settled in your new home. Having moved here six years ago I do know what a huge undertaking it is for you.

Love and hugs,
Jeanne

Vee said...

Just popping in because I can to say that I am thinking of you as you get your blog back to good working order. Thank goodness for helpful and smart daughters!

Just Ducky said...

Tried sending this to your email but it kept bouncing back. I have several pages of paperdolls that I have saved from ME magazines including 5 different Tommys. I would be pleased to send them your way if you are interested. Let me know if there are any others in particular that you are looking for.

TO ALL MY FRIENDS.....
First I lost my DESIGN page so no new posts coming up any time soon...
then, I lost my DASHBOARD...now, I am having a really hard time getting on FACEBOOK....
...just so you know I am not ignoring any of you...I am just in outer space, floating around, not knowing where or if I am going...I hope to see you again here....
love, kisses and most of all blessings that whatever happened to MOI doesn't happen to you.
bwaaaaa...I am so so stressed.

Ricki Treleaven said...

I love this post, BJ. My sorority's philanthropy is Susan G. Komen. :D

LOVE the pretty shades of pink in this post!

bj said...

After spending 5 days googling everything we can think of, we have found there's nothing left to do to recover control over my original blog, SWEET NOTHINGS....all I can do now is start all over, losing 6 years of blogging, followers, page views...EVERYthing.
So look for a new blog soon....
Thanks, bj

Vee said...

Oh no... I'm so sad for the loss of all that is here. Can it be printed? I will look for you in your new incarnation. Gosh this is depressing news.

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I love the pink. I don't think I own anything that is pink and yet when I see it on the blogs, I love it!

I'm due for my mammo, have the paperwork out to call. This week is flu shot. I like to only have one medical thing a week if I can make it happen that way!

Curtains in My Tree said...

I have been wanting to ask you if you are the lady in the AARP medicare commercial I see on TV ?

I want a pink donut now LOL

amy @ Life in Pink Hi-Tops said...

I'm tickled pink at this post! Beautiful photos and beautiful words.

Susan K said...

BJ, sooooo sorry to hear of your computer problems, but so very thankful all is well with you otherwise...I was getting a little worried since we hadn't heard from you in awhile...and I DO miss reading your blog! I feel so bad that you lost all that work from the past 6 years, I can't imagine how you must feel. I am looking forward to seeing the new one! BTW, LOVE the pink, Hugs, Suzy from PA.

Jeanne said...

Hey bj, I hope all is well with you and yours. I came over to say hello and you haven't posted. Thinking of you my dear sister friend.
Love, Jeanne

Maria Kristina Maano said...

Hello BJ, thanks for following my page and for your comment. ;-)

Your post inspires me to be more vigilant in my job of inspecting the quality of mammogram machines. I hope by doing what I do, I can help in better detection of breast CA.

Have a good week!

From the Kitchen said...

I just came over to check on you and hear that you've lost your blog. Oh dear! Waiting to hear where you pop up.

Best,
Bonnie

Junebug Furniture and Design said...

Oh! your white pumpkins in your header are so cute!

Beth said...

BJ, There are several articles on blogger account recovery on the blog called The Real Blogger Status (what Blogger won't tell you).
Here is one: http://blogging(dot)nitecruzr(dot)net/2013/09/account-blog-recovery-may-involve-your.html
Best of luck! I have missed you!
Hugs, Beth

Beth said...

BJ, I just had another thought about your blog recovery. Ruth of Antiques and Teacups, Kathy of A Delightsome Life, and Judith of Lavender Cottage all had some serious issues with this/possibly someone else assuming control of or stealing content. I'm sure any of these ladies would be glad to let you know how they got the issues resolved.
Hugs, Beth

Terri Buster said...

Lovely pinks and a lovely way to get the word out about mammos!

Creations by Marie Antoinette and Edie Marie said...

Hi BJ!

This is a fabulous post! Breast Cancer Awareness is such an important cause to break out some pink. Your picks are great.

I've enjoyed catching up with everything you've been doing... moving is such a huge task. Your new home is gorgeous, what a kitchen! Oh girl you got it goin' with that stove now! You must feel like you're on vacation opening those french doors and walking out to a pool. I'm so happy for you in your new digs.

Have a blessed day sweetie! Edie Marie
