Tablescape Thursday - It's All About You!

Hello, Dear Ones! Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by our marvelous Dish Diva Susan at Between Naps on the Porch! Make sure you visit her to see many more gorgeous ways with dishes!

We're all so busy taking care of our families, being busy with friends, and jobs we rarely take out a little time for ourselves. So in honor of you today, I would like to send a little blog hug yourway.

I came out on my sun porch and made a little breakfast tray for you to enjoy! This little tray is the removable top of my tray table. I put a nice crocheted doily on it to frilly it up just for you!

I know most of you probably like coffee, but I've made you a pot of tea today! Just good ole hot tea. I've put out some milk - I like milk in my tea! There's sugar in the creamer for you.

I've put out my oldest silver for you to use and the special napkins sent to me by Martha! Thank you again, Dear One!

I must tell you, this is the sweetest little tea set that was given to my by my Mr. Precious for Christmas a few years ago. So you know how special you are to me when I bring this set out to use.

Don't you just love the pretty little hand painted flowers?

Are you ready to sit down now? Look at your special tray I've set just for you! Are you hungry yet?

I made these special honey bran muffins just for you along with strawbabies, blackbabies, cherries and bluebabies! (these were my children's words when they were small and they just stuck!) All this goodness is sitting atop my darling little pink cakestand surrounded by a few little babies' breaths. Faux of course! My saying goes...I love my fauxs and my fauxs love me! :)

Now the muffin is still warm so I've put you out a little pat of creamy butter in it's own individual butter pat dish! Isn't it so cute? I just love cute! Can you love cute? You bet your giggly hee hees you can!

Okay, please sit down. I've put a sweet little quilt over my wicker love seat to calm you down with soft colors and even put the pillow shams at the back for your comfort! I've even placed a wonderful decorating book out here for you to browse through - Welcome Home by Emily Barnes. I was introduced to her and her lovely home through my sweet friend Mona because her daughter lives in Ms. Barnes home now. If you want to see that marvelous house, please go visit Mona ~ she's so sweet and her door is always open!

Okay Sweet Dear Ones, sit down and enjoy and I'll pull up a chair - you see, I have my tiny plate already fixed and I'm going to join you! Hope you've enjoyed your Tablescape Thursday Huggy from a Note Song gal! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

You've Got A Friend

When you're down and troubled
and you need a helping hand
and nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.
You just call out my name,
and you know wherever I am
I'll come running, oh yeah baby
to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
all you have to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You've got a friend.
If the sky above you
should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
and soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
all you got to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold.
They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again.
Oh babe, don't you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
