A Little Bit of Yellow Sunshine



Hello, Dear Ones! I just have to share with your something! I have some sunshine in my tiny breakfast room sitting on my little round table! Oh, it makes me happy and I love to share my happiness with you! :)

Pretty sunflowers, filled with sunshine! Sunshine, sunshine in my soul today!
Isn't that a song? :)



So what do I do when I have sunshine on my little round table? Set up a vignette!



First I have this lovely little square plate ~ it's hip to be square! Isn't that a song? :)
The pattern is Bluebird of Happiness, I believe by Dario Farrucci.


I have a little matching jar, maybe it is a canister. You know you just never can tell!
Was that a song title too? Maybe Chuck Berry. :) You know I just can't help it! Help!!
By the Beatles! I've got to stop this! :)
Anyway, precious birdness on it!


Sunflowers filled with sunshine! Yellow ~ Mellow Yellow! Yep! :) Donavan!
Are you with me?


Olden vase. It looks like my Fostoria crystal but it's glass called Whitehall.
I can see clearly now!
Wasn't that a song too? :)
Olden vase filled with yellow sunshine. Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy!
Yep! John Denver! :)



Then I've set up a little vignette with birds in the sunshine!
Bird is the word!! Isn't that a song too? :)


Wink!


Basking in the light!



A little fruit to please me and our birds! Oranges!


Hope you like my little vignette filled with sunshine and a few song titles!
You know I'm a silly. Can't be any other way! :)




I'm joining Our Dear Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday,
Our Dear Sally at Smiling Sally for Blue Monday,
Our Dear Cielo at The House In The Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday,

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a day that I could give you
I’d give to you a day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I’d sing a song to make you feel this way

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a tale that I could tell you
I’d tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I’d make a wish for sunshine all the while

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high
Sunshine almost all the time makes me high
Sunshine almost always
~sung by John Denver

    What a very very sweet vignette you have on that shining little table.
    The bird plate is darling and the little birdies especially the little winking one.

    I LOVE sunflowers...next spring you must remind me to plant some! I forgot again this year until it was too late.

    Doesn't that table just brighten your soul and make you smile...it does me. *hugs*

  22. It is wonderful here
    and very fun!
    I love sunflowers.
    And John Denver was my favor.
    and still is.

    It would be great
    If you could play on the piano and sang these beautiful songs.
    Maybe someday
    you do it on YouTube.

    THANKS!!!
