Just Playin'

Yep, Dear Ones, I'm just playin'. I visit so many of your blogs that are so romantic looking. Your decorating is filled with whiteness, vintageness and clouds. So, I wanted to pretend that my home was filled with whiteness, vintageness and clouds too!

I found this olden tray last weekend at a garage sale and it started the tiny wheels in my head spinning! That could be a dangerous thing! :) But in this case it started my fun.

Just look at the pretty detail on the handle. I'm lovin' it!

So out came some laceyness and I poked all sorts of silvery objects onto it. Good thing our Shelia, Mrs. Magpie, is on a blog vacation or she'd be stealing my shinyness! :) Gotta love that Mrs. Magpie!!

Sugar scuttle filled with silvery salt and peppers! Is that a hoot or what? :) I love this! Can you love sugar scuttles filled with silvery salt and peppers instead of sugar? Well, you bet your high blood pressure you can! :)

Silvery cups: one up - one down! :) I'm loving this stuff! :)

Oh my, more salt and peppers! Little Fostoria crystal individual salt and peppers. Just perfect to poke down on a breakfast tray. How did that little rabbit spreader get there? Well, he's all ready to do his tiny job of spreading something sweet upon your toast.

A lovely olden sugar bowl (unshined of course) missing it's lid and is filled with tiny little butter knives and olive forks.

Now this looks like a wine bucket but it's very tiny. Perhaps it's supposed to hold my olden tiny bottle of Dr. Pepper - 10, 2 and 4 of course. You won't get this if you're not olden like me! :) I did stuff it with some olden Battenburg lace napkins!

Oh, and just because it's pretty, I've poked down a silvery dipper (you know that's just southern talk) tarnished of course! :)

Lot's of pretty laceyness and some candles. I didn't light the candles because I love my home and didn't want to start a fire and burn it down! :)

How did I do? I have tried something different and stepped out of my world of much colorness into the world of romanticism. Did I accomplish whiteness, vintageness and clouds?

I'm linking up with Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday
Artie at Color Outside the Lines for Vignette Friday.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Both Sides Now

Bows and flows of angel hair
and ice cream castles in the air

And feather canyons everywhere,
Ive looked at cloud that way.

But now they only block the sun,
they rain and snow on everyone.

So many things I would have done
but clouds got in my way.

I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall.
I really don't know clouds at all.

Moons and Junes and ferris wheels,
the dizzy dancing way you feel

As every fairy tale comes real;
I've looked at love that way.

But now it's just another show.
you leave 'em laughing when you go

And if you care, don't let them know,
don't give yourself away.

I've looked at love from both sides now,
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall.
I really don't know love at all.

Tears and fears and feeling proud to say
"I love you" right out loud,

Dreams and schemes and circus crowds,
I've looked at life that way.

But now old friends are acting strange,
they shake their heads, they say

I've changed.
Something's lost but something's gained
in living every day.

I've looked at life from both sides now,
From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall.
I really don't know life at all.
