He's So Fine

Hello, Dear Ones! First of all, I want to thank you all who came to my Heart of the Home - Roosters and Chickens Party! What a wonderful turnout and I have loved visiting you and seeing all of your yard birds! I've decided to extend the party until Thursday evening because there were a few late comers. I will announce the two winners on Friday morning of my giveaway. So go ahead and bring your yard birds to my party. Just go to my previous post and link up!

Again, I love you all and thank you so much for coming to my party! Yard birds reign! :)

*************************************

Speaking of yard birds, I took a little ride yesterday and visited one of my favorite thrift stores and there HE was! HE was staring at me and it was love at first sight.


Yep, another Rooster! Isn't HE beautiful? Well, handsome? HE's so fine. I had to have him and you know the rest of the story.

HE's so fine! Look at that body! Do you think HE works out? And HE's so neat and pulled together!

So what am I to do with one so fine? Poke him down on my dining room table and set up a vignette! :) I love this stuff.

You just might remember my little tool box/caddy! Well, I'm loving this treasure too. I knew I could use it in my display and poked in some hydrangeas.

So pretty, right? Full is always better to me. So I poked and poked and then poked some more flowers in my little wooden tool box

I laid one lone hydrangea down to look as if it had fallen out of the tool box. I'm so talented like that you know! ;) I'm teasing.

Then I grabbed an olden Colony Fostoria crystal bowl and poked it full of pears - faux pears!

All my treasures are sitting on a table runner that is scrunched. I have learned to 'scrunch' from Marty at A Stroll Thru Life. You all know what wonderful vignettes she sets up!

Well, there's my dining table vignette with my new main man! HE's so fine! HE's so fine here.

HE's so fine there.


And HE's so fine everywhere! Just look at that face! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)


I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

He's So Fine

Do-lang, do-lang, do-lang
Do-lang, do-lang

He's so fine
(Do-lang, do-lang, do-lang)
Wish he were mine
(Do-lang, do-lang, do-lang)
That handsome boy over there
(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
(So fine)
Oh yeah
(He's so fine)
He's so fine

  14. Of course you had to have him Shelia! He looks so good with those pink hydrangeas. Yet we know boys don't like pink, so I hope he didn't hear me! Enjoy your new find and have a great Thursday!

  35. Shelia, love your new roo and your pretty table vignette. I've been so out of the loop in Blogville that I just found out about the party! Thanks for extending the time to link up. Hope it's okay that I copied an old post to link. laurie

  36. You are too cute. Loved the addition of the song. :0 Your rooster is a real score. I have always wanted to collect them but my mom and daughter aren't on board with the whole rooster thing. What do they know, right? He's fabulous and I would have bought him too. He looks right at home in your sophisticated country vignette.
    Thanks for stopping by I reaffirming my decision to paint my little oak piece raspberry pink. Your kind words bolstered me up.

  41. Hi Sheila, Excuse the ... post above. I had written a comment and it said I was not authorized to use my acct. or something like that. So I was testing it out. Anyways, it's working now. Thanks for your nice comments on the arrangements and frames. I am so glad I am feeling creative again. This summer I have just had the blahs! I know alot of it is the heat. The weather has always affected my moods! I'm excited for the fall months ahead and am feeling back to my old self again! Sorry I missed out on the rooster party. Since I have been out of touch I missed out on alot of good stuff! Count me in on your next party for sure! Have a great day! Kristen

  44. Now that is one handsome, hunky Rooster! What a beauty!
    AND I MISSED YOUR ROOSTER PARTY!
    As Lucy Ricardo would say, "Waaaaaaahhhh!!!!!"
    You really do have the BEST collection of roosters and chicks I've ever seen -- they are gorgeous!

    And I love that you used "he's so fine" -- reminds me of an old college boyfriend.... (don't tell hubby!)
    Hahaha -- have a great weekend, my friend!

  46. Hi, I don't know you, but we must be kindred spirits. Somehow, I got to your blog -- your favorite cupboard party -- and I just loved your pantry. Well, I just have to share this...yesterday on lunchhour, (I'm a Goodwill regular on my lunchhour) I was browsing the books. I picked up a "projects you can build", was thumbing through it, and there it was, "your" pantry. The "project picture" shelves appear to be less wide than yours, but basically it's the same concept. I still had my finger holding the page as I checked out! Thank you for sharing your favorite cupboard.

I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
