Disheveled Dishes

Oh, my goodness! What has happened in my kitchen? Look! Well, please don't look at the old fashioned under counter lighting, that's a little embarrassing! Just look at the dishes! I can't show you my new carpet yet because the dining and living rooms are almost nekked(Texan again, for naked)! I need to clean all the wood really well and cram, um, not cram but 'place ever so neatly' all my things in all of stowaway places. I came down with a stomach bug last night and didn't feel like doing nuttin'! So, you can see my little mess!
I had to unpack my china cabinet, my Little Richard and my antique server of some of my dishes and where was I to put them - on my kitchen counters - making a complete mess! Now bear in mind, these are just the dishes I stash in my dining room. I have much more! Hi, my name is Shelia and I'm a dishaholic. Okay, on with the show...
Dishes are everywhere!

Oh, I love these dishes. Can you love Blue Garland dishes by Haviland? Of course you can!
Casserole bowls...
Beverage server, butter pat plates...
Sugar and creamer...
Even disheveled salt and peppers sitting onplates and bowls and golden disheveled chargers. Oh, my!
Look! Pink disheveled dishes!
Precious little Rose Bouquet dishes by Johnson Brothers. These were the first little dishes Mr. Precious bought for me when we first married. The pattern is discontinued now and they have my heart! Aww...
As Bo calls these, the faux Johnson Brothers dishes. I love faux dishes and my faux dishes love me! lol
Very old white disheveled dishes.
Is this a mess or what? Can anybody help me? I'm feeling disheveled around my edges!
Disheveled pink depression glasses...

Precious hand painted salt and peppers ...disheveled, of course!
Crystal, vintage and newer, depression glass - all disheveled dishes!
Even the tiniest of salt and peppers completely disheveled! I think I'm going to need help! I'm feeling rather dizzy looking at all this disheveled mess! I believe I need to go and take a nap. There's always tomorrow! :) Wanna come over and help me put these all away. Christmas is coming? Next week? Yes, I'm going to lie down now! :P

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Well, actually, would you believe I can't think of a single song to go with this post! What the heck...

I Want A hippopotamus for Christmas

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door,
that's the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses like me too

Mom says the hippo would eat me up, but then
Teacher says a hippo is a vegeterian

There's lots of room for him in our two-car garage
I'd feed him there and wash him there and give him his massage

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a hippo hero standing there

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
No crocodiles or rhinoceroseses
I only like hippopotamuseses
And hippopotamuses like me too!
