Still Fallin' Around

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm joining Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses today for a Fallen Party! Make sure you pop over to see all who have Fallen today!

Well, I am a bit embarrassed but my house has been Fallin' around! It's that time of year. So let's start at my Fallen front doors...

Yes, I know, it's pitiful! Last year I made this two wreaths for my front doors.

Oh, before we go in, look at my mailbox. I found this cute little Fallen sign to hang on it. It's shameful, isn't it? Wonder what the mailman thinks about my Fallen mailbox?

Now we're in the entry ( I showed it to you yesterday). But alas! My entry is Fallen too. What's a home owner to do? Well, there is a little wreath hanging on my very olden coat rack. Actually, I've cheated ~ this is really a little candle ring. I'm very clever, don't you think? :) I think I'm a Fallen Woman!

Okay now I will take you into the breakfast room! Oh, my goodness! My breakfast room has been Fallin' around too! I guess I'm just going to have to accept my Fallen breakfast room. Just look at her!

Here is my little hutch, my favorite play toy! She's a Fallen woman too! Pray for her.

If you visit me much you know how I love my dishes. I'm beginning to run out of room for all of my dishes.

I've used the top of my Fallen hutch to store some of my dishes. I have a basket filled with dishes and others that are just stacked! It helps a bit even if my hutch is shamefully Fallen.

I'm just loving making mosaics and have made one to show you all of my shameful Fallen things on the shelves.

I hate to say this, even though my hutch is Fallen, she sure is cute! :)

Good grief! Look at my table - completely Fallen! I don't know what I'm going to do. I guess I'll just have to show you what's been going on. There faux apples and pears under a cloche.

There seems to have been some adjustments ~ I like this better even if it is Fallen. Some rafia is tied about the little knob and now it really does look more Fallen. Don't you think? I see some little florals added too!
I wanted to show you what I found at Marshalls for $3! This precious little Rooster dish with tiny knife! Isn't this cute? I just love a bargain!

Now if you visit me very often you know when you come into my kitchen you're going to see Roosters! And that is with a capital "R". My Rooster is laughing because the hens have been squawking looking at that pumpkin and wondering what someone laid that one! :)

Well, for evermore! My pantry doors are Fallen too! Can you believe it? Never mind, let's just go on into the kitchen. We've really been in the kitchen all along, I just have little sections! :)

More Falleness! My Rooster plate has seemed to hook up with some pumpkins!

Even more Falleness! Here's a little corner in the kitchen that has completely become Fallen!

You might want to close your tiny eyes ~ this cloche is so Fallen and you can see right through it!

Oh, I feel a little better now. This is not a Fallen plate. Hi sweetness.

Shoot! I spoke too soon! My sweet plate has betrayed me and she's up and joined the Fallen crowd! Just look at that Rooster and those tiny Fallen fruits! For shame!

I think I can see more clearly now since we're standing by the window. My little white Roosters are so fresh ~ and FALLEN! How could they do this to me? They've allowed Fallen pumpkins to join them on the windowsill.

Oh, my counters are just filled with Fallen objects! Look! More Roosters and pumpkins. Do you see the cute little yellow Rooster creamer? I've been watching a Brady Bunch Marathon (...everybody's smilin' sunshine day!) excuse me ~ and I saw one that looked very similar to mine sitting on their breakfast room table. But there kitchen was certainly not Fallen!

For shame ~ the nerve ~ the Falleness! How could you little yellow Rooster creamer!

I don't even know if I can speak anymore, well type, my kitchen has completely betrayed me! It is completely Fallen. My kitchen has been Fallin' around! Really my entire downstairs has been Fallin' around! I guess I have to admit it to you ~ I am actually the one who's been Fallin' around and I love it!

If you'd like to see more of my Fallen home just look at the following post! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~
Runaround Sue

Here's my story, its sad but true
It's about a girl that I once knew
She took my love then ran around
With every single guy in town
Ah, I should have known it from the very start
This girl will leave me with a broken heart
Now listen people what I'm telling you
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue
I miss her lips and the smile on her face
The touch of her hair and this girl's warm embrace
So if you don't wanna cry like I do
A-keep away from-a Runaround Sue
Ah, she likes to travel around
She'll love you but she'll put you down
Now people let me put you wise
Sue goes out with other guys
Here's the moral and the story from the guy who knows
I fell in love and my love still grows
Ask any fool that she ever knew, they'll say
Keep away from-a Runaround Sue
She likes to travel around
She'll love you but she'll put you down
Now people let me put you wise
Sue goes out with other guys
Here's the moral and the story from the guy who knows
I fell in love and my love still grows
Ask any fool that she ever knew, they'll say
Keep away from-a Runaround Sue

  12. Greetings Sheila ~ I'm finally back from my summer long blogcation.

    I read till I touched bottom!
    Your fall decor is very inspiring, especially the autumnal colors throughout your vignettes.
    My favorite...all the ceramic/blown glass pumpkins, sooo gorgeous!!!
    We started preparing for the fall season that seemed fast approaching, including putting the AC's into storage...just to find we're heading into a heatwave this week!!!

    Congratulations to your daughter and son in-love! A Grand-baby, how wonderful!! I can't wait for that time when we get that incredible news. My kids (in Seattle) have only been married for two years, meanwhile they've blessed us with the addition of one cat and now a new puppy to their family.
    A cruise...what a fun adventure with your family. Mr. Precious is beaming in the pic.
    The bathroom Diva shot was a definite *must do*!

    I'm sooo happy to know I'm not alone in my dish addiction!! I've started to run out of hiding places. My hubs doesn't fall for the "oh these old dishes, we've had this old set for a long time."

    I've enjoyed catching up. Please stop by...I look forward to the return of your company.
    Sweet wishes,

  13. Oh Sheila, I've fallen hard for your breakfast nook. Your curtains are made of one of my favorite fabric. The whole room is adorable, especially in it's fall finery.

And my things aren't nearly as nice as your things. Waaaaaaa! I love how you put that tiny little pumpkin in the measuring spoon. You are so creative! Everything really does look fabulous, Shelia. I want some fall here! Come decorate my house for me, please!

  50. Hi Sheila,

    I just noticed the fabric in the breakfast room. Is that Queensland/crimson? I couldn't really tell from the picture.
    If it is, that is one of my all time favorite fabrics.
    All the rooms in your home look so warm and inviting all decorated and ready for the changing season.
    Just beautiful!

    I love your double door entry with the wreaths - very sheek.
    I love that "Fallen" hutch - I have my eye lookin for one - so perfect for a "dishaholic" ! You are the queen of displays....I am just drooling and I have to take another look....
    p.s. you do have the bestest rooster collection...

  59. Wow, Shelia....everything is just gorgeous! Your hutch just makes my heart sing....I always sing when I'm here. :)

    Hugs~ J

  60. Hi Sheila, you certainly are a fallen woman. These look beautiful girl. I thought I had done quite a bit..but alas I might have to add more.. lol.. I love the apples on the table. What a wonderful idea..and your cloche domes are gorgeous... I'm wondering what Chloe Dawn thinks of all your beautiful decor? hugs ~lynne~

  61. I see things have really fallen into place with The Fall Decor, it's all very lovely.
    Happy Fall,

  62. I love seeing more of your fallen-ness! Even your roosters are fallen!!!! Love it all, :D Jewel

  63. Oh wow, Sheila, such lovely things! These are all so wonderFALL! I had to scroll several times -feast to the eyes! :)

    Thank you so much for dropping by my blog! I appreciate it! :)

  64. It looks so beautiful! Your home is the perfect backdrop for Fall colors!!! Mine isn't...I want to skip Fall and start decorating for Christmas! As least I can do blue and white for Christmas!

  65. Sheila, I love all your fall decor but I'm crazy about all your roosters. They look perfect with all your Autumn pretties.


  66. Love the white cake pedestal! I've had my eyes out for a white cake pedestal for six months now, and I just can't find one that I like that's within my budget.

  67. To my favorite "fallen woman" friend- everything is so pretty and inviting! You have such a wonderful collection of roosters, pumpkins, dishes, tureens, etc.etc. And what you have done with them all is simply charming, Shelia. I always have fun when I visit. Oh, and I love that song - it's not about me, though...LOL Big hugs from a true blue Sue

  68. Shelia,
    I just love your rooster collection, the white ones in the window are just beautiful. You have done such a wonderful job decorating everywhere, I bet you can feel the warmth when you walk in.

  69. You make being a fallen woman the most glorious thing! You've put your beautiful collection together so wonderfully! Your home looks so warm and homey.

    What site do you go to in order to create your most gorgeous mosaics? I would like to try that sometime.

    I am now a fallen woman too as you will be able to see this week in future posts!



I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
