Roo on the Countertop

Hello, Dear Ones! I thought I'd play in the kitchen again and set up something cute on the counter top. I love my Roosters (with a capital "R") so I just had to poke this guy down.


Isn't he handsome? He thinks he is handsome too and his colors look so well in my tiny kitchen.


I've been piddlin' with my sewing machine and have made a few table runners.
This is one I made for my little round table in the breakfast room
and thought I'd toss it over my wanna be island.
You can see I used a contrasting fabric for the little ruffle.
I'm so talented to think of that, you know! :)

Now that my wanna be island is covered with my newly made table runner,
I poked down some more things.
I've used my 'was alive but is now dead and dried out' roses.
I just love how they look and their bright yellow color has dried to a goldeny hue.
They look like paper roses, don't they? Oh, that's a song!! :)
I just amaze myself sometimes! ;) You know I'm kidding!

Then I've added these two cute little Rooster salt and peppers!
They're just as cute as buttons.


Now I want you to see Mr. Rooster's most gorgeous little tiny face!
This is his good side.

Or is this his good side?
I'm not sure, but he's just so fine don't you think?

Well, when I pop into my tiny kitchen ~ I see this and it makes me smile.
I want to wish you all the most blessed Mother's Day
and pray it will be filled with love and lots of smiles!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

He's So Fine

He's so fine

(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Wish he were mine
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
That handsome boy overthere
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
The one with the wavy hair
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
I don't know how I'm gonna do it
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
But I'm gonna make him mine
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
He's the envy of all the girls
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
It's just a matter of time
(Do-lang-do-lang)

He's a soft [Spoken] guy
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Also seems kinda shy
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Makes me wonder if I
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Should even give him a try
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
But then I know he can't shy
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
He can't shy away forever
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
And I'm gonna make him mine
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
If it takes me forever
(Do-lang-do-lang)

He's so fine
(Oh yeah)
Gotta be mine
(Oh yeah)
Sooner or later
(Oh yeah)
I hope it's not later
(Oh yeah)
We gotta get together
(Oh yeah)
The sooner the better
(Oh yeah)
I just can't wait, I just can't wait
To be held in his arms

If I were a queen
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
And he asked me to leave my throne
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
I'll do anything that he asked
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
Anything to make him my own
(Do-lang-do-lang-do-lang)
For he's so fine
(So fine) so fine
(So fine) he's so fine
(So fine) so fine
(So fine) he's so fine
