First Friday Home Tour Featuring Sweet Nothings

Good morning peeps!

It's my favorite day of the month when I get to share the home of another sweet blogger with you. This month's feature is the sweet, spunky, and always fun



BJ's blog was the very first one I ever stumbled across many years ago and I'm still a faithful follower of hers. BJ and Mr. Sweet Nothings live way out on the other side of Texas but one of these days I hope to meet her in person. Now let's let her show you around and then be sure to pop over to her blog for beautiful decorating, amazing recipes, money saving ideas, and family fun all with a little faith thrown in.





My thanks to Stacey at Poofing the Pillows
for inviting me to show  a few snippets of our Summer House.





Our son and DIL so generously offered their beautiful pool house
to Mr. Sweet and I for our home several years ago.

We are blessed.


This beautiful pool is right outside our doors....



and it is MOST BEAUTIFUL when it's full of grands..






Summertime bedding...



Wintertime bedding...
red warms everything up.




Our dining room is, by far, our favorite room...




Our dining room is such a delight...
 large...
bright...
happy




 Plants do so well in this bright room...


...growing little starter plants in this fabulous southern french door....










Black and white just "speaks" to me...


checks...
signage...
a pretty checked mantle scarf...
I just love it all...

Thank you BJ for allowing me to share your gorgeous cottage this month. 
Be sure to visit BJ at Sweet Nothings and if you have a moment, her husband needs your prayers.

I have been friends with BJ for so long, I feel like I could walk right in and have biscuit with her! I have loved her style in both homes, her old home was such a reflection of the love and warmth she exudes, and her new home is just the same. She's the best of the best. Thank you for showcasing her lovely home :)

Bj knows just what brings her readers into her home! She shows the best food photos and her decorating just makes you want to go in and visit for awhile. Love seeing her beautiful home!

Kim said...

I have visited BJ before and her blog is always a fun one to read!! :)

Jeanie said...

I, too, follow BJ's blog and have picked up some wonderful ideas from her! I wish she'd stop showing all those fabulous food and cooking shots, though, because whenever she does, I find myself completely out of self control and hungry! Her photography and blog is delightful and so is her home!

What a fun gal and her blog to feature, Stacey! I've been a regular reader of sweet bj for years, too. I think what I love the most about her adorable home is the LOVE she has for it - appreciation - loving family - every time I visit there I end up happier for doing so.

Thanks for letting me smile here today, too!

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Hugs. ♥
