This and That

Hello, Dear Ones. Today I thought I would just have a little random post. Hope that's okay with you all! :)

My sweet friend Sally at Salmugundi asked to see this plate I have handing on the wall. I have two on either side of my highboy in the dining room. I got these plates about three years ago at either Ross or Marshalls. I do love these plates being all toile and all! On the back they say - Toile! That was a smart thing to do, wasn't it? :) So this is for you, Sally!

Here's another little cuteness of plate hanging on the wall in the dining room. I have four of these two hanging on either side of my china cabinet. My Dear Daughter gave me these years ago. I love those little swirlies on the corners.

Then I have this cute 'forks' picture...

and this cute 'spoons' picture. I found these at Kirklands. Very appropriate for a dining room, don't you think? Let's eat! Well, I don't have anything cooked for you at the moment. :)

Then this olden vintage picture which is so hard to get a snap! I found this at a garage sale a few years back for $20. I love it. It speaks to me. Wonder if these flowers are faux! :)

Then to top off my randomness, I'll show you a little tassel that has found it's tiny way to the china cabinet for now.

Well, hope you're all doing well and I just love it when you pop in to see me.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

I'm Easy

It's not my way to love you just when no one's looking
It's not my way to take your hand if I'm not sure
It's not my way to let you see what's going on inside of me
When it's a love you won't be needing, you're not free

Please stop pulling at my sleeve if you're just playing
If you won't take the things you make me want to give
I never cared too much for games and this one's driving me insane
You're not half as free to wander as you claim
But I'm easy
Yeah I'm easy
Give the word and I'll play your game
So that's how it ought to be
Because I'm easy

Don't lead me on if there's nowhere for you to take me
If loving you would have to be a sometime thing
I can't put bars on my insides
My love is something I can't hide
It still hurts when I recall the times I've cried
I'm easy
Yeah I'm easy
Take my hand and pull me down
I won't put up any fight
Because I'm easy

Don't do me favors, let me watch you from a distance
'Cause when you're near, I find it hard to keep my head
And when your eyes throw light at mine
It's enough to change my mind
Make me leave my cautious words and ways behind
That's why I'm easy
Yeah, I'm easy
Say you want me, I'll come running
Without taking time to think
Because I'm easy
Yeah, I'm easy
Take my hand and pull me down
I won't put up any fight
Because I'm easy
Yeah, I'm easy
Give the word, I'll play your game
So that's how it ought to be
Because I'm easy

  1. Sheila,
    Love all your prints and plates! Very pretty!

  2. Hi Shelia,
    I like your ramdomness! It's always fun to see different things throughout others homes. Afterall I think we bloggers are peeping toms! LOL!
    Love the plates and the fork and spoon pictures are divine.

    Thanks for the little diddy song too.


  3. Thanks for the "peeks" you I love hanging plates on the wall!!!

    May I join your bathroom divas??? The above link has the pix I made...

  4. I LOVE those toile plates! Thanks for the up close look at your walls. I like your wall color too!


  5. Hi Sheila
    Your home is full of such lovely treasures. I especially like both the toile plates. I am a big toile fan.

  6. I love your toile pictures, Sheila.
    I have some toile in my home.
    Your silverware pics are just right for the dininjg room. Haven't seen them before. You have so many cute things!

  7. OOooooohmy, I love that tassel, honey!

  8. Love the toile plates!!

    ...and who knew Keith Carridine sang?? I'm gonna have to go listen to that!

    Have a great day!

  9. Hi there...I love your plates and pictures too, they have character! Oh, and I am sure those flowers are faux too! Thanks for sharing your pretty things :D

  10. Thanks so much for showing me a close-up of that wonderful plate. I'm so envious - I would have bought it in a minute, if I had seen it!! The plates your daughter gave you are pretty special, too. Have a great week. Sally

  11. Sheila, I love those toile plates. I can't believe you found those at one of the discount stores. Good deal!

  16. Hey Miss Shelia!!! I have that same tassel in my bedroom - I got it at Marshalls for like $5! Is that where you got yours??

  17. Love those silverware photos and the flowers are beautiful, it is hard to shoot glass, I was trying to do mirrors the other day without me in them, flash in them, and no unwanted reflections of the mess in the background. Uffda!

  18. Oooh love the plates, Shelia. I also love decorating with plates. I have 3 yellow and blue rooster plates hanging in my kitchen that give my wall just the perfect touch. I found them at Goodwill for about a $1 each. What a find!

    Lots of love to you friend,

  19. HOW I do love tassels! I love them. I am shopping for another one and so far the one sent to me by Gloria cannot be topped. It is red and black with a rooster on top...adorable. :)
    I love the pictures...are they in the dining room?
    How I would love a clip of your songs, with you at the piano playing and singing...I just keep hoping...and hoping...
    :) (ok..I'll shut up!) LOL
