I'm Back With Bells On and Tablescape Thursday!

Hello, Dearest Ones!! I'm back with bells on! Can you hear them? Ting a ling a ling!!

Oh, how I've missed you! I appreciated reading all of your comments and thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your sweet kind words! You are all so very special to me.

Now, I must tell you about my blogging break! Mr. Precious and I went to Washington to visit our daughter and son-in-law and what a wonderful time we had! We poked Mother into an assisted living place as a guest while we were gone. Well, we didn't actually "poke" her in there - we gently "poked" her in a sweet little apartment for a week. You know I'm kidding about the "poking"! She had a marvelous time herself!

More about my trip later, but I wanted to share a little tiny Tablescape with you - after all - it's Thursday! So I hope Dear Dish Diva Susan at Between Naps on the Porch won't kick me out for not doing a full bodied tablescape! My bells are still ringing - ting a ling a ling!



I have a little Easter tablescape vignette for you, just sweet and simple. If you know me, I'm don't do simple very often! :) Just a little tray filled with Easter sweetness sitting on a round crocheted doily.
Just a little Easter tureen - a lettuce bowl sitting on a little lettuce plate with little tiny adorable bunnies popping out of the lid! Aren't they precious?!
Just some of my JoAnn shop Easter egg cups filled with faux eggs! Shh...don't tell the little bunnies!
Just a nice creamy jug filled with faux yellow tulips! Again, please don't tell the bunnies because you know I love my fauxs and they really do love me! Hope you've enjoyed my little Easter tablescape vignette! Don't forget to visit our Dear Dish Diva Susan to see beautiful tables that will knock your socks off!

Now you know I have to show you a bit of my trip. I don't want to bore you, but I am so excited that we were able to visit our Darling Daughter so I have to milk this just a bit! My bells are still ringing! Listen...ting a ling a ling!! :)

No matter how old our Darling Daughter is, she'll always be our baby! Here she is sitting in Daddy's lap in all of her 34 years of babyness! :)
This is our most lovely granddog, Finnley! He's smiling for the camera! He's so proud of his little pearly whites! He's a chocolate English lab and really is adorable! They got him as a puppy when they lived in England.
You know how important 'snapping' is to me. I'm even letting you see me in all of my tired wornoutness, puffy eyes and all...but my joyness is overflowing - snapping with my baby!
On with the sightseeing...





We ate the best crab cakes in the world!! Yummyness!

Downtown Seattle, Washington

Down by the water to Pike's Market
The very first Starbucks




Posing for a bit of funness...
More posing, more funness
Being silly for Mommy. People say she's takes after me, wonder what they mean? :)
My baby! I have to be careful...son-in-law doesn't like me to post his picture. I did slip a couple in, but don't tell him! :)

Oh, it's so good to be back Dear Ones!
You are my sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you will a little Note Song~ ting a ling a ling!

Til There Was You

There were bells on a hill
But I never heard them ringing
No I never heard them at all
'Til there was you
There were birds in the sky
But I never saw them winging
No I never saw them at all
'Til there was you
Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn and you
There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No I never heard it at all
'Til there was you
Then there was music and wonderful roses
They tell me in sweet fragrant meadows of dawn and you
There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No I never heard it at all
'Til there was you
'Til there was you
~sung by The Beatles
