Fairy Dust!


Hello, Dear Ones! I'm so excited to tell you my home is filled with fairy dust!

Yes, ma'am! 
There's fairy dust on the floor, on the tops of my tables, 
on the bottom of my tootsies and on my most gorgeous face! 
What? It's not fairy dust? (as I blink my baby blues)
Um, well, it just may be glitter as I'm busy taking down all of my Christmasing!
Shoot! There goes my fantasy! 

But I do have something to share.
I received a gift from God and my lemon tree...

 Ta dah...!

 About 2 dozen yellow lemons!

It's such a treat to gather the fruit at Christmas time. 
Thank you, God!

 I never have never figured out why my lemons get those little picks all over them.
I don't think the birds peck my lemons, but maybe they do. 
It could be the thorns on the bushes. Don't know.

 So after a nice soapy bath, I sliced one of my lemons so show you how pretty they are.
These puppies are BIG too and soooo juicy!

The smell is so heavenly. Take a whiff..

Sniff sniff sniff...
Yes, ma'am. That smell is sunshine to your nose.

I'll see you in a few day when I get all of the fairy dust, I mean glitter, cleaned up!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

When You Wish Upon A Star

When a star is born
They possess a gift or two
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true

When you wish upon a star
Makes no diff'rence who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind

She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

When you wish upon a star
Makes no diff'rence who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind

She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
~ sung by all the dreamers in the world :)

  3. I think the fairies had a convention at my house! I like to leave my tree up to the 6th, but I am not so sure about that.......love those lemons. What a treat to live in a climate where you can grow your own citrus. xo

  4. You're just too funny! You are lucky to have such wonderful lemons of your own now. I love lemons! I cut them up and put them in my water everyday. I even heard there are a lot of medicinal purposes for lemons (including anti-cancer). How bout that? Enjoy your lemons!

  6. Isn't glitter a form of fairy dust? Oh...don't burst my balloon!!
    I have to sweep for about a month before the last of Christmas is off the floors...I am not kidding...I think it is gone, and then poof...more there!

  10. I have some of your "fairy dust" too (as well as a bit of dust dust)!

    The lemons are fabulous and am surprised that you have them at this time of the years. I think I should move closer to you...I prefer a more temperate climate than North Texas! ;)

  11. Oh if I had some I'd make a lemon pie. I make them like an apple pie, rhine and all, so good. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  20. Oh my, some of those same fairies have been visiting my home, too! They shared some dust with me as well! LOLOL!

    How neat to harvest lemons this time of year! Or anytime, for that matter! That truly is a blessing from God! :)

  21. Is there anything more beautiful than a fresh bowl of fruit especially the sunny colored lemon? They look like they would be perfect for one of my family's favorite, lemon meringue pie. Yummy. Take care, Shelia and don't work too hard!!-------Shannon

  22. Shelia,
    Your "fairy dust" made me laugh! at least it's sparkling...unlike "dust bunnies" here on the Prairie! Ha! Your gift from God...lemons...are so beautiful. I could almost taste the juicy sweetness! Enjoy your "gift" while you glitter around the house!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  27. I can smell them, Shelia. And, they smell and look heavenly. I love the scent of lemons.

    Fairy dust! I like that idea, and I do believe you can find some fairy dust around my house, too. It seems so much more acceptable when referred to as fairy dust.

    How is your sweet Carter?

  30. Mrs. Shelia! You never ever fail to bring a smile to my face and a song to my heart. I can almost smell those fresh lemons from here. Aint God Good! :)
    So glad to hear you tiny wee one is feeling better. Now I must go and have a glass of lemonaid in honor of you. Maybe I may just find some fairy dust here too. Wishing those fairies would clean my house while they are here..ha! Big New Year Hugs to you friend~

  31. LOL I have some of that fairy dust too! I love lemons and my taste buds are working overtime now! I miss my Mom making me lemon meringue pie! I often chose that for my birthday rather than a cake!!
    Your table is sweet and I love the tree under the cloche! Too cute! You did well with those dishes from Target! I love a good bargain!
    I couldn't help but notice your tile floor! It looks just like mine! We remodeled in '95 and I chose 8 x 8 tiles. I can't tell if yours are that size but they look like it. I used a taupe grout and yours looks similar!!
    Hope your holidays were great, I'm just catching up on some blogging now! Cheers to the new year!! Liz

  32. I have some citrus as well - so exciting: meyer lemons, key limes, clementines. Yum!

  33. Shelia, I've also noticed the fairy blew through here...right before the temp dropped to 18!!! Your lemons are amazing and perfect on the inside...that's what counts! Think of me when you have lemonade!
    Happy New Year,
    Helen

  36. Shelia, how I've missed your posts! I'm so sorry for not having visited more. It's been nuts over here!

    I love lemons and I wished I lived near you. We are still figuring out our lot for future landscape but hopefully I can squeeze in a lemon tree in there somewhere! Hugs and Happy New Year!

  37. Wow - home grown lemons - gorgeous! I can't imagine having my own lemon tree. Evidently it likes "living" at your house. Now, let's see....lemon pie, lemon cheesecake, lemon pound cake, lemonage, etc......Linda

  38. Shelia, I have some of that dust here also. Wonderful how it got all the way down here. Haha.

    Love those gorgeous lemons!
