Mature Corner

Hello Dear Ones. I've decided I needed to arrange a vignette in my little kitchen corner. A more mature corner. I usually poke down a few of my yard birds and other silly little things. I get so inspired by Our Dear Marty at A Stroll Thru Life as she sets up the most beautiful vignettes in her kitchen and wanted to have a more mature vignette set up in my corner. So here's what I came up with.

What do you think? Is more mature looking?


I used a large metal tray I've had forever to ground the vignette.


Then I sat down a tiny little chest I found this summer at a garage sale and spray painted. I placed my cabbage salt and peppers on top. I also added my lidded artichoke bowl.


I placed down a wire basket and filled it with faux fruit. I just love my fauxs - flowers and fruit! Can you love fauxs? You bet your seedless grapes you can! :) So, how'd I do? Is my corner more mature looking?


Shoot! Who am I kidding? ;)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Cinderella

She spins and she sways
To whatever song plays,
Without a care in the world.
And I'm sitting here wearing
The weight of the world on my shoulders.

It's been a long day, and there's still work to do.
She pulling at me saying, "Dad, I need you.
There's a ball at the castle, and I've been invited.
And I need to practice my dancing.
Oh, please. Daddy, please."

So I will dance with Cinderella,
While she is here in my arms.
'Cuz I know something the prince never knew.
Oh I will dance with Cinderella.
I don't want to miss even one song.
'Cuz all too soon, the clock will strike midnight...
And she'll be gone.

She says he's a nice guy, and I'd be impressed.
She wants to know if I approve of the dress.
She says, "Dad, the prom is just one week away.
And I need to practice my dancing.
Oh, please. Daddy, please."

So I will dance with Cinderella,
While she is here in my arms.
'Cuz I know something the prince never knew.
Oh, oh, oh I will dance with Cinderella.
I don't want to miss even one song.
'Cuz all too soon, the clock will strike midnight...
And she'll be gone
She will be gone.

She came home today, with the ring on her hand,
Just glowing and telling us all they had planned.
She says, "Dad, the wedding's still six months away.
But I need to practice my dancing.
Oh, please. Daddy, please."

So I will dance with Cinderella,
While she is here in my arms.
'Cuz I know something the prince never knew.
Oh, oh,oh I will dance with Cinderella.
I don't want to miss even one song.
'Cuz all too soon, the clock will strike midnight...
And she'll be gone.
