Song Title Twist

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I've had so much busy going on in my life right now that I thought I would pull up a post from a long time ago - 2010 to be exact! I've been blogging for a long time.
Okie Dokie! Now you're going to see my dining room table from my former house all decked out for Easter. So I decided I would add little song titles to each little spot! I'm so clever like that since you know I end each post with a song title! :) So here goes and I hope you like it.

I've set the dining room table for Easter with lots of sweetness. I just love sweetness. You may ask, can you love sweetness? Well, you bet your pink and yellow peeps you can! :)

As I said, I'm going to change the wording of my post from last year. I believe I'll just caption each picture with the name of a song. Would you like that? Would that be okay?

Okay, here goes...

Don't Leave a Mess at Lunchtime -preschool song

Polk Salad Annie - Tony Joe White

I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket - Ella Fitzgerald

Anticipation - Carly Simon

Build Me Up Buttercup - The Foundations

You Don't Bring Me Flowers Anymore - Neil Diamond/Barbara Streisand

I Never Promised You a Rose Garden - Lynn Anderson

Long Tall Glasses - Leo Sayer

Dizzy, I'm So Dizzy - Tommy Roe

Red Roses (Hydrangeas) For a Blue Lady - Wayne Newton

In Your Easter Bonnet - Fred Astaire

A Tisket, A Tasket - Ella Fitzgerald

I'll Get By With a Little Help From My Friends - Ringo Starr

And Then He Kissed Me - The Crystals

You Lift Me Up! - Josh Groban

I Only Have Eyes For You - The Platters

Baby Love - The Supremes

Come On Baby Light My Fire - The Doors

He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother - The Hollies

You've Got a Friend - James Taylor

I Saw The Light - Hank Williams

Happy Trails To You - Roy Rodgers and Dale Evans

If you've lasted this long, I thank you so much and hope you've enjoyed my little revisited post.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll  leave you with a little Note Song ~

It's Yesterday Once More

When I was young I'd listen to the radio
Waitin' for my favorite songs
When they played I'd sing along, it made me smile
Those were such happy times and not so long ago
How I wondered where they'd gone
But they're back again just like a long lost friend
All the songs I loved so well
Every sha-la-la-la
Every wo-o-wo-o, still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they're startin' to sing's, so fine
When they get to the part
Where he's breakin' her heart
It can really make me cry, just like before
It's yesterday once more
Lookin' back on how it was in years gone by
And the good times that I had
Makes today seem rather sad, so much has changed.
It was songs of love that I would sing to then
And I'd memorize each word
Those old melodies still sound so good to me
As they melt the years away
Every sha-la-la-la
Every wo-o-wo-o, still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they're startin' to sing's so fine
All my best memories come back clearly to me
Some can even make me cry, just like before
It's yesterday once more
Every sha-la-la-la
Every wo-o-wo-o, still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they're startin' to sing's so fine
Every sha-la-la-la
Every wo-o-wo-o, still shines
Every shing-a-ling-a-ling, that they're startin' to sing's so fine
~ sung by The Carpenters


  1. Sheila, such a great table and I love the song titles for captions. Dizzy is one of my favorites. Your granddaughter is just beautiful. I know you are already spoiling her!

  2. You have such fun Easter critters upon your table! Carter is so precious -- Please keep us supplied in pictures -- she's just a doll!

  3. Beautiful table, Sheila...love the kissing bunnies.
    Beautiful little granddaughter. I really like her name, anything out of the ordinary and unexpected is right up my alley.

  4. Love the table and the song titles were so fun. That Carter is a doll!

  5. Hi Grandma,What a little cutie...You are going to have so much fun.... My new little one is 1yr and 5 months...I am having a blast...Do stop over I have pictures up...Oh and I love the tabel

  6. Lovely table setting! I knew all the songs you chose!

  7. Sheila, I love your 'almost new' post!! But more than that, Carter is such a beautiful baby!!! I love the 'bathroom diva' shot on your side bar too!! I bet you are quite comfortable in your grandmotherness!! Easter blessings to you and your family!

  8. Little Carter is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing her with us!

    The tablescape is gorgeous! I didn't see it last year. The songs idea is so cute!

    I love that little duck in boots!


  9. Noooope, it never wears off, sweetpea. I was wondering if we'd see another pix of that doll at the end of the post and you didn't disappoint. BUT now you'll have to see endless pix of our Miss A (since they haven't settled on a name yet I'm calling her by her last name from here on out, honey! Be prepared in June to see lots of pix of her.... LOL

  10. When your table is that beautiful, it is definitely OK to use it again. Just gorgeous! And the last picture is by far the most beautiful! Congrats on that Cutie Pie!

  11. Sorry but the grand mother-ness just gets worse...or should I say it gets better and better, cause it does!
    I loved the song titles with each pictures..very cute and everything is so beautiful..love it all.
    I tried to re-post and older one today but on everyone's list it still shows my previous post but when you come to my blog it's there...so I am confused, it's been all day and I don't know what I did wrong. So good job..I loved it all. Come say hi :D

  12. This is just too much fun! Adorable table. LOVE the china, the glassware, well just everything! And the "commentary" is just perfect! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Easter!!

  13. Beautiful Easter Tablescape my sweet friend... I loved it! And you could never post to many photos of sweet little Carter... We love seeing them! Have a wonderful day Grandma...

  14. Sweet baby and a sweet table. I just love your plates. Joni P.S. and the song titles!

  15. Morning Shelia

    it is a great table and I am sure you have lots of new followers who haven't seen it before. Love the way you have added the song titles. Best of all that beautiful grand-daughter, Carter the best addition to any post!!

    Jackie in UK.

  16. Sheila,
    Thanks for sharing this beautiful tablescape from last year. And thanks for changing up the wording. I laughed and smiled all the way through that. You are a very clever girl. :)
    Love the little bunnies kissing.
    Cute grandbaby post.

  17. Shelia, I didn't see this table from last year, so it is a lovely inspiration to me now!! Gorgeous dinnerware! Love all the little song titles to caption your pics, too. :-)
    How sweet your grandbaby is.
    Happy Easter, toots!
    hugs, Sue

  18. Oh, Shelianess, this is a most delightful and fun post. I do remember your beautiful post from last year but with the song twist, it is all fresh and new and chock full of cuteness.
    As for GRANDMOTHERNESS wearing off...NEVER...NEVER...NEVAH !!

  19. It is all so pretty. I especially love the duck with the rain-boots. That made me laugh. Enjoy Easter with your family and just keep on posting those grand-daughter pics. Love it! Deb

  20. Dear Sheila, I had so much fun reading your post today. Your tablescape is awesome. I adore all your sweetness and prettiness. I am glad you shared this post again. I don't remember it. Your sing choices made me smile BIG!!! I too love music, even though I haven't a musical talent at all.

    I love Carter Ashlan to pieces. She is beautiful and I think she has her grandma's wonderful personality already. Lucky you and all the family to have such a wonderful blessing as a baby girl.

    Your daughter's home is very attractive. No surprise to me!!! I love the very whimsical color purple in her kitchen. It is all lovely.

    Since I have been gone too, (10) days, I have had little time to visit. I have missed you too.

    Hugs xoxo,

  21. Stunning just stunning.
    Love the captions!

  22. You are so clever. Lots of memory songs titled there. Carter is adorable - I told you it was unbelievable being a Grandmother. Happy Easter to you and yours. Sally

  23. Your table and the baby (OF COURSE!) are beautiful! Happy Easter to you and your family!

  24. Ooooh! Little Carter is so adorable! We need to introduce her to little (well not too little anymore, lol) Nathan. We need to put him on a diet. Nope Shelia, grandmothering excitement and pride never end. Your bunnies and other accessories are just so lovely and you know I love those plates. I have the Spode Emma's Garland set also and my stepdaughter just sent me the green buuny Bordallo Pinheiro set. Love the song title caption....Christine

  25. Your Easter table is so worthy of showing again first time I got to see it and Carter is a doll....I would love to show my grandchildren to all my blogging friends but I just can not bring myself to post thet're pictures on the internet...I've tryed to and changed my mind it causes me great anxiety.Trish

  26. You made my day- what a wonderful post!! Carter is beautiful-lucky you!! And no- the grandmotherli-ness does not ever wear off (spoken as the adoring Grandma of 2 little angels) and you certainly don't want it to! I LOVE your dishes too
    xoxo Pattie

  27. You are so funny! Your granddaughter is precious, and yes, I am a tad jealous. My son just won't get with the program...

    Aside from little Carter, my fave is that Ella Fitzgerald Egg! But the whole table is gorgeous.


  28. Oh my goodness isn't she precious Shelia! You are a very blessed family. Gorgeous!

    What a beautiful tablescape for Easter. You made me smile with all of your song titles. Too cute!

    Thank you for your kind visit. That is just too funny you said that about cutting my hair off. HeHe! I really have been thinking about it. I'm a big chicken to cut it too short though. I do need a good trim soon.

    Happy Easter! ~Melissa :)

  29. I love the baby photo and I am laughing when I see the photo of all 3 gals in the bathroom mirror. Too funny:) Happy Easter.

  30. You are a HOOT....Love your sense of humor and creativity....what a nice twist on the standard descriptions to use song titles....loved all of them...
    beautiful tabletop too!!Sharon

  31. Wonderful post, great photos...esp. that little bundle of joy! I love the pink stemware, the lidded eggs...it's all so beautiful!

  32. you had a blast! so many cute things, happy easter!

  33. So glad to see this again, it's just beautiful! Happy Easter and congrats on you sweetie Carter! She's a looker just like her grandmommy!

  34. You my Dear are a Joy. Its a joy to see you posting, a joy to view your beautiful table and all your Easter decor and a joy to see the smiling faces of some of the happiest grandparents I think I've ever seen..
    Thank you for always bringing JOY into our lives..

    Happy Easter to You and Yours

  35. HOW do you stand it! She is just such a little dolly! Your Easter tablescape is lovely enough to do you for years to come! I wouldn't even mind seeing it next Easter. I am sincere when I say it is exquisite! Now...back to our little Carter... :) Our tiny one is already nearly two..and I am ready for another!

  36. We forgive this time for using an old post and spicin it up alittle. When I think of Polk Salad Annie, The King , Elvis Presley jumps into my mind. Huge Elvis fan of course! Hope everyone is doing well. Thanks for sharing! Happy Easter!

  37. Your table is just lovely, so springy! So many combination's!
    I hope you are loving the new grand girl to pieces. A more precious gift you will never get..well maybe baby # 2 and 3..LOL
    Have a glorious Easter with your new bunny!

  38. Clever, clever and beautiful settings to go along with the songs. And, NO, "grandmotherness" should NEVER wear off. I'm jealous. Adorable.


  39. I liked your Easter post - but I especially like the last one about the new grandbaby. Yes, being a grandparent is one of God's greatest blessings! And I know you are a special gramma. Your little one will love your singing all your songs to her!
    Happy Easter.

  40. What a lovely table. What a harmony of colours make this mixed plates. And my favorite is this rose decorated porcelain egg with stands. I am sure next year your little granddaughter will have much fun with the Easter decorations of her granny.

    Wish you a happy Easter.

  41. Very clever Miss Sheila!
    You have created a gorgeous table, every little item is so special! I wish I knew how to fold napkins like that! And the baby girl is adorable, enjoy your Grandma-hood~
    Hugs and Happy Easter,

  42. I wish you a Happy and Healthy Easter!

  43. I wish you a Happy and Healthy Easter!

    You are a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  45. Sheila, it looks absolutely new - and beautiful, too. I see lots of pink.

    You've got the very best pink in the world now. Your beautiful Carter.

  46. Beautiful tablescape! I'm sure you're jumping up and down over grandma-hood. (She has your nose.)

  47. Hi Shelia
    Happy Easter! And you now have your own little baby girl bunny too, Carter. Next year you can start hiding Easter eggs for her..*s*...though she might be a little too litto to eat them.

    Your tablescape is gorgeous. You did a great job humming and making it new for this Easter. *hugs*

    Have a beautifully Happy Easter ..
    all blesssings..

  48. Oh Sheila, I love your table. And you have got me singing all the songs (at least the ones I know, which were most of them). That was fun. Thanks for sharing. Your grand baby Carter is just precious. You are a lucky Grandma. Have a Happy Easter. And thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.

  49. I love the little "cabbage" bowls ! All adorable !
    The Little Things

  50. I didn't see it last year so it's new to me ;) Beautiful table! I love all of your charming Easter decor and that new babe is a sweetheart.

    Happy Easter!


  51. Sheila....that is THE most beautiful Easter table I think I have EVER seen!!!! You, nor anyone else could EVER top that! You just can't do it! I just love those little bunny critters under glass...it's the sweetest thing...not sure why but it is. Oh...that little Carter is a doll and your daughter and hubby have a beautiful house. The apple does not fall far from the tree....she takes right after you Sheila. How lucky are you to be grandma to that precious little angel? What a beautiful gift from God. I have been praying every morning for little Carter and your daughter and son in law and you and Mr. Precious too. Happy Easter to you all....what a blessed time this is for everyone.

  52. Oh Sheila...love your gorgeous table but that precious angel just steals the show. What an absolute slice of perfection...you are sooooo blessed!

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter!

  56. Sorry, I almost missed this post...lovely...and loved the songs!!!

  57. Your granddaughter is just beautiful!We are expecting our first grandchild in July - also a girl! Also have a grandpuppy but looking so forward to the human variety! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I invite you to become a follower.

  58. You had me smiling the whole way through this post! Shelia, I love your sense of humor and your beautiful tables! Wishing you a great week and a happy Mother's Day!

  59. What? No China Grove? Ha! You are so clever and creative. Just love it!

  60. Shelia, that was absolutely the cutest post I've seen! I'm still smiling, it's just beyond perfect! You clever one, you!!!

    Hugs, sweet and busy lady!

  61. Oh Shelia!! How beautiful and wonderful!!! I don't know what you do or did for a career, but you should have been a stylist or window dresser or something because you really do make the most beautiful arrangements of things that could be quite ordinary, but in your hands become something so pretty and lovely to look at!!! I love your arrangements always, but this table does seem to be particularly pretty to me!! Shows that your blogging has only gone from strength to strength along with your decorating skills!!! xx

  62. I started to pick a favorite song..and I can't. I loved so many of them ..and a part of my life with memories attached to each of them.. I think most of us are like that..music associated with the times of our lives. "I had the time of my life" reading this post. I loved it. But then..it was written by one of my favorite bloggers!!
    Much love to you and thank you for sharing remembering with us.

  63. Hi Shelia, Oh this was just so cute and you did so good matching the songs to your pics and table setting. Everything was so pretty in 2010 in your olden house. Love it and how time has gone by blogging. I started in 2007 when everything was so new and we didn't even have a following, google friends or all the new gadgets in blogland today.
    You are so creative and this was so much fun.
    Hugs and Blessings, CM

  64. Oh Shelia, you have such a cute personality, and you are very talented. Matching all those songs to the table-setting took talent. By the way, I love the table-setting. It is gorgeous! Hope you are doing well. Hugs to you my friend, Karie

  65. What a most gorgeous Spring table!...glad you brought it back so I could enjoy it!

  66. I know most of the songs :)

    Your table is so pretty. Lovey dishes and decorations.

  67. So enjoyed your gorgeous table and the sweet song titles too!

  68. Shelia, I love it.......................I love it..................just gorgeous!

    Happy Mother's Day!

    Barb xo

  69. How cute is this! Great job tying in the songs to the pictures!

  70. Very clever post and I enjoyed it vey much!
    Have a great day

  71. Cute and clever, remember so many of those songs which brought back memories! I enjoyed your post! Happy Mother's Day!

  72. So cute, Shelia. I love the table with all the fun decor. Your song choices were spot on!

  73. I actually remember that Easter tablescape! We've been blogging friends a long time ;)



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 :)
