Shake Ya Groove Thang, Yeah Yeah

Oh, Dear Ones! I just had to poke in a quick post to show you what I found. Mr. Precious and I took off today to play! We poked around in antique malls and thrift shops. On our last stop I found these and I just had to show you...


Ta Dah...

Rooster canisters! Well, maybe they're chicken canisters. Heck, I don't care. I love 'em!


Is this not just the cutest little thing you've ever seen?


Look at that little Rooster or chicken face! Adorable!


Did you see that? He or she just shook it's tail feathers! Did you miss it?


Look at the darling little scrolly thingys on the lids.


Oh, Rooster or chicken heaven ~ that's what I'm in!


Of course I always look on the bottom of things to see if there is a brand or marking, Well, this one, Dear Ones, says ~ June ~ 1974. Well, I guess Ms. June must have made these little darling canisters in a ceramic class in good old 1974 ~ during the year of Disco!! I wonder where Ms. June is today? She probably has forgotten all about making these little precious things and she certainly doesn't know that she has made my day! Thank you, June!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Shake Your Groove Thing


Shake it, shake it

Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah, yeah
Show 'em how we do it now
Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah, yeah
Show 'em how we do it now, show 'em how we do it now

Let show the world we can dance
Bad enough to strut our stuff
The music gives us a chance
We do more out on the floor

Groovin' loose or heart to heart
We put in motion every single part
Funky sounds wall to wall
We're bumpin' booties, havin' us a ball, y'all

Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah, yeah
Show 'em how we do it now
Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah, yeah
Show 'em how we do it now

We got the rhythm tonight
All the rest know we're the best
Our shadows crash in the light
Twistin', turnin', we keep burnin'

Shake it high or shake it low
We take our bodies where they wanna go
Feel that beat, never stop
Oh, hold me tight, spin me like a top

Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah, yeah
Show 'em how we do it now
Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah, yeah
Show 'em how we do it now

There's nothing more that I'd like to do
Than take the floor and dance with you
Keep dancin', let's keep dancin'

Shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it

Groovin' loose or heart to heart
We put in motion every single part
Funky sounds wall to wall
We're bumpin' booties, havin' us a ball, y'all

Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah, yeah
Show 'em how we do it now
Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah, yeah

  4. Oh Sheila Sweetie...
    These canisters appear to be chickens and maybe roosters? But are they cute or what? I can just see them on your counter shakin their grove thing. Tail feathers all together now. Love it sweetie. I just love it. The color is exquisite and such detail.

    Are you ever lucky? I adore them. You get tired of them, I know of a good home for them to come to.

    Sounds like you had a wonderful Saturday sweetie. Country hugs...Sherry

  24. I bet they are happy to have found such a wonderful home and someone to love them.
    Back in the day those would have been happy sitting on my avocado green formica countertop. (I actually had the orange top mushroom/toadstool canister set.)
