We're Nekked!!

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Monday!! I'm joining Blue Monday hosted by our Dear Sally at Smiling Sally, Met Monday hosted by our Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch and Mosaic Monday hosted by our Dear Mary at Little Red House. Make sure you go visit these ladies and be very inspired!!

Now, I'm just shocked at my home! Yes, I am! It's NEKKED! That's Texan for naked, ya know!
Just look in the living room...

My tables are baring their all! Their tops are nekked! Oh, Lord! I'm so ashamed. Then..

My breakfast room hutch is really nekked! She is showing everything she has! Why am I showing you all of my home's nekkedness? Because there is a solution to this nekkedness problem. We'll start with my little hutch.

Ta Dah!!! The solution to furniture nekkedness is to cover her nekkedness with stuff! Now the fun begins!

Whew! See? There is hope for nekked furniture pieces! I feel so much better now.

Although my little hutch was never without her hat, her shelves were showing her nekkedness. I'm kinda fond of the yard birds so that is just what I poked upon all the shelves!

I learned a little trick from my sweet friend Lynne at Lynne's Gifts From the Heart! See the little napkin draping over the top shelf? Well, Lynne had talked about the texture of fabric and letting it drape down a bit over a shelf to give more interest to your vignettes! Did I do good, Lynne? :)

I received these darling Rooster dishes for Christmas from my Mr. Precious! I also created a tablescape with them a few weeks back. If you'd like to see it you can click here . When I had placed all of my Rooster dishes on the shelves, something was just missing. It didn't look right! :( It was just too blah! Now I can't go from nekkedness to blahness so I started poking in some white pieces and I think that looks so much better.

White Roosters. Don't they just make you happy? They'll cover up nekkedness every time! :)
See that sweet little child's teapot? I found that in a thrift store a few years back and it's just so sweet with the little baby chicks. See the blue Sally? If you listen really closely you can hear their tiny little cheep cheeps! Can you hear them?

Here's a little Rooster picture filled with hydrangeas. I love hydrangeas, don't you? Mine are faux of course! Gotta love faux flowers to cover up a multitude of sins - I'm speaking of nekkedness. Nekkedness is not a sin (well, that's debatable isn't it?) but flaunting it like my tiny hutch was doing ~very bad news! Trust me and please say a prayer for my hutch!

Now we're looking at the bottom shelf and all of the yard bird business is doing a wonderful job covering up nekkedness. See? Even a little runner over the top of the shelf.

Praise the Lord! We're decent now! :)

Here is the cutest little ole Rooster pitcher. Can't remember where I found him but I've had him for a few years.More blue, Sally! Pretty little Fitz and Floyd salt and peppers are standing tall here. Love my s & p!! Can you love little salt and peppers? You bet the shirt off your tiny back you can! :)
See the cute little odd plate in the background. Another willing little soul to cover up some nekkedness! What little troopers my yard birds are!

Let me tell you a little story and you know how I love to tell you little stories. A few months back I was strolling down the aisles of Marshalls with my tiny dainty fingers clutching the handle of the shopping cart looking for special treasures! Well, my tiny most gorgeous eyes spotted this little sugar and creamer set! I feel in love immediately, popped them into my cart and brought them home. They've been playing around in my kitchen for sometime.Well, Christmas time came and I took this little pair away and brought on the red and green. When I started to cover up the nekkedness of my little hutch I thought about this little duo. Pulled them out of the cabinet and my heart skipped a beat! Yes, Dear Ones, it really did! They were the perfect match to my Rooster Christmas dishes! Hallelujah! Woo Hooness! Was I happy! Now wasn't that a great story! A match made in Heaven or a match made in Marshalls! You decide! : ) and this is not THE END! :)

Here are some of the humongous mugs with the set and another little odd yard bird plate to fill in the gaps. See those precious little white napkins rings? They're really not covering up any nekkedness they're just for adornment! My sweet friend Jan at Rose Haven gave these to me. I love them. Smile sweeties!

Now any decent hutch would not be complete without a tassel. Yep, that's right! Tassels just make the furniture! :) Here is the perfect one to finish our ensemble! A Rooster tassel! Fluffyness abounds here and a wee bit of embarrassed fuzzy photoness! I love this stuff!

There you have it, Dear Ones! From nekkedness to clothed and decent in just a short amount of time!

Now when you come to see me I won't be embarrassed of my silly hutch showing all of her splendorness in a very embarrassing way. She looks so much better and has calmed down a lot. Thank heavens!

uh oh...

What's a mommy to do? Doggy nekkedness! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Lady Godiva

Seventeen a beauty queen
She made a ride that caused a scene
In the town

Her long blonde hair
Hangin' down around her knees
All the cats who dig striptease
Prayin' for a little breeze
Her long blonde hair
Falling down across her arms
Hiding all the lady's charms
Lady Godiva

She found fame and made her name
A hollywood director came into town
And said to her
"How'd you like to be a star?"
"You're a girl that could go far"
"'specially dressed the way you are"
She smiled at him
Gave her pretty head a shake
That was Lady G's mistake
Lady Godiva

He directs certificate 'X'
And people now are craning their necks
To see her
'Cause she's a star
One that everybody knows
Finished with the striptease shows
Now she can't afford her clothes

Her long blonde hair
Lyin' on the barber's floor
Doesn't need it long anymore
Lady Godiva
