Randomness

I spend a lot of time in my dining room and kitchen..
it's a favorite area of the Summer House
with so much natural light flowing in thru 2 sets of French doors
and the 5 large windows.




 The plants think this is a GREENHOUSE...
they are all doing so well.


 ...just take a look at the fern on the floor...
it's so healthy and green and......growing !




 "SWEET AS sugar"...a sweet gift from sweet grand, COURTNEY


 New sconces from Kirklands that I really love.



 I use a LOT of PIONEER WOMAN'S recipes and I
LUV her pretty cookbooks.



I am going today with my girl, STACY LEIGH....
we are heading to a great place not too far away
that has SHOP after SHOP after SHOP.....
a great time to go and I just know we will find lots of fun things
for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.

I have a little bit of extra money (if there IS such a thing)
since I sold a bed we no longer needed....
sooooo.....
hoping to find lots of goodies for all the stockings
that will soon hang
 by the chimney with care.

which reminds me that I want to show you this adorable stocking
from JOHANNA GAINES
new line at TARGET.











She has a lot of cute things at reasonable prices there.

LOVE TO ALL,
bj

  2. BJ your home is gorgeous and your plants are amazing . . . I wish I had a green thumb, but when it comes to house plants, I have zero talent. It is a true sin for me to even bring one into our home, because I can not make them thrive. Outdoor garden plants are another story . . . they love me. I think it's all the manure I spread, LOL. I pinned that little sign "Please Close the Gate" . . . we need one like that. So, if you don't mind, I'll be copying it to hang on our front gate. Every now and then the Fed-Ex or UPS puts something on the front porch and forgets to the shut the gate. I'm afraid that our little Butchy will get in the road. Many of your neighbors have lost dogs to the road through the years and we don't want to be one of them. Well, I have certainly wagged my tongue a bit here . . . but once more, beautiful home and I love the black and white checks . . . have fun Christmas shopping.

  7. Oh my . . . your green plants look wonderful . . .
    They must be saying, thanks for the sunshine, by staying so green and full!
    Lovely home you have bj and lovely decorative pieces too.
    Enjoy shopping with Stacey . . .
    Shop for the stocking stuffers but don’t forget to buy something “sweet” for yourself!
    (Years ago, after a day of shopping with my mother, it always ended with a stop for “a sweet”,)
    I love my “momma memories.)

  13. Love the sconces and your pretty room- love all those pretty plants, too. Mine are still outside as summer is still sticking around. It won't be long until I have to de-bug and bring them in, but I have no place to put them. Heading into a sad holiday time (first without my mom) so I am trying to think of new and different things to add to old favorites to change it up a bit. Blessings!

  14. It's looking amazing and you have made everything so inviting and comfy there bj. We don't have enough light to grow much indoors, but I have started two amaryllis which hopefully will grow and bloom for the holidays as we plan to be at home this year.
    Love those sconces - what a great find.
    Happy shopping!
    Mary -

  15. BJ, The sconces look fabulous like that. I would love the wire baskets with liners. I love things organized...not that I am any more. LOL. I love have lots of light in my home too. Hope you have a great time with Stacy. I am eager to see some of Joanna's things in the stores. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  32. Lovely, simply lovely! I really like Pioneer Woman's recipes too. Have you ever tried making her apple dumplings? We all love them, including me who had never liked baked apples of any kind before.

    Blessings~

  33. Plants breath such life into a home don't they?! It is no wonder that yours are putting on such a good show, it's a virtual hug from the universe to say we're all doing pretty good :) Have fun shopping!

  34. I always enjoyed the photos from your dining room before and now a whole new pleasure. You've done a spectacular job which I suspect is only the beginning ;)
    P.S. I noticed the sconces first thing and wondered if they were new. (I almost said scones but they will no doubt appear at some time--haha)

  35. I would spend my time in that beautiful sunny space too.

  39. The kitchen is the heart of the home and large or small it seems to be where everyone congregates. I can see why yours would be a magnet. I'm wildly envious of your beautiful light -- my area is so dark. It's just a wonderful place and so cozy.

    Your day sounds wonderful!
