A Little Ditty

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm so glad to have all the Christmasings put away now and am trying to get back to a little more simpleness. My home looks a little empty without the Christmas tree which we always place right there where the little table and lamp are.

I'm so thrilled in fact, I'm going to sing you my version of 'O Christmas Tree'. Ready?

Ahem, cough, clearing tiny throat...hummmmmm...


No Christmas tree, no Christmas tree
I do not miss your branches



You sprayed your glitter everywhere
floor, carpet and it's in my hair



No Christmas tree, No Christmas tree
I do not miss your branches



No Christmas tree, no Christmas tree
You are the tree that's put up
Your lights that were just shining bright
Are wrapped in boxes, taped so tight



No Christmas tree, no Christmas tree
I'll get on with my life now!!



...uh oh!!
Shoot!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I left you a little Note Song~

  2. Lovin' your song Sheila! Don't ya just hate it when you turn around and find something you forgot to put away! That one usually ends up getting tossed on top of the boxes to fend for itself:@)

  4. Lookin' good, Shelia!
    There is one more tree left, at home. I'll get to that, next week. We've enjoyed this time away at the lake and actually got some things done here and other projects started.

  16. Great song and I guess I should start singing it as I have yet to get my Christmas down! Was hoping it would be today but it was not to be!

    This weekend is not looking too promising for it either- maybe I will just keep it up till next year. just think of all the time I would save!!

  21. You crazy FUN girl! :) (Have I called you crazy before? You know I do so very lovingly!)

    That was just too cute and so true! I continue to find things left out. Looks like Mr. Brown Socks will have to make at least one more trip up to the attic!

  23. LOL! Loved this, Shelia!

    Here's my song:

    Oh, hacking cough, oh, hacking cough...
    I long for you to stop now...
    Oh, hacking cough, oh, hacking cough...
    All I do is hop now...

    I hop to grab a tissue true...
    I hop to grab the Nyquil, too...
    Oh, hacking cough, oh, hacking cough...
    It's time I want you to be whacked now.

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  31. Hi Sheila,
    Your song is wonderful!!! And, your home is beautiful! I think this is the first time I have been here, I see your lovely face and comments everywhere, though. You have a lot of friends and I can see why. Every one likes to be called "dear ones". I know I do, I enjoy your sweetness.

  32. That is too funny! And your last picture made me laugh! I call those our strays!I have a pile on my entry table right now waiting to be taken upstairs and put away! Can't be in too big a hurry...I'm sure I'll find another one!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have collected mine on the dining room table. Okay, inspired now. I wanted to sort them so I'm glad I saw that you do, too.

    Love your new header! Now off to find boxes, and there should be many here, for my newly organized Christmas decorations.

    ReplyDelete
  34. LOL! I am glad I am not the only one that ALWAYS - and I mean ALWAYS finds something I forget. You just get so used to seeing it all for so long, that it begins to just blend together!
    This was an adorable post! You are just too clever!
    I will pass around hugs to all from you next week in AZ!
    Have a great weekend! Hugs! Karen

  36. Very cute! I could just here the emphasis in that "Shoot!" haha! You have such a beautiful foyer and entry way outside. I've never seen the outside and only glimpses of your foyer! They are both stunning! I hope you'll come over and follow me on the new blog now. I always enjoy hearing from you.

  37. Hi Shelia,
    I am going to have this song in my head the rest of the day, thank you!!! LOL!

    I'm glad to put it all away too. I really enjoy it but I also love to tuck it all away to next time!

    hugs

  39. Shelia, I finally got my trees taken down and all the ornaments are now packed away. Just need to get the tree box back upstairs to the storage closet. That will be tomorrow when I can have a little help. ;-)
    Beautiful foyer!

  40. It was all good while it lasted and before you know it you'll be putting the old christmas tree back up again....I hope we are all still here to see it. Take Care Trish

  41. Shelia, you are so funny! What a cute song! The funny thing is that we keep doing this over and over each year. It's kind of like childbirth....you forget the pain...hee hee hee. Oh, I've been meaning to tell you - I really do like your new blog header - beautiful! Linda

  45. Shelia, I just love that song! Some glitter got on my hair, too! lol Happy New Year, dear one and we, too are still taking down decor and organizing all boxes as we dumped our paid storage just last week. You have a beautiful home!

  46. Lovely little ditty. I am still working to put away my tiny amount. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Cute! And there seems like there's always at least one escapee!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Shelia,
    I love the words to the song, especially sung in your lovely voice!
    I think it is a requirement to work hard getting it all put away and then find a least one thing you missed. Or 4 or 5.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Great song! My tree is down as of today and it feels so de-cluttered! If I had known your song, I'd have been humming along. lol I'm like you though - I always spy something that forgot to get packed or 1 ornament left (never fails) taking the tree down. Oops!

    You always make me smile.

    Have a great week!
