Fruit Loops


Hello, Dear Ones! I'm still piddlin' around in my home and the other day when I showed you my breakfast room some of you said you liked the set up on my table. So, I thought I would give you a little closer look.

Here's the view of my tiny little breakfast room you saw a few week ago. I love my olden tablecloths and this blue and white one is one of my favorites! Yep, those are bottles of water you see poked under the high chair. Just keeping it real folks! :)

Fruit loops! I know it's silly, but I'm a silly! Three blue bowls filled with fruit - fruit loops! Makes sense to me. :) Do any of you remember the department store called Mervyn's department stores? Well, my son worked there for a couple of years outta high school and told me about these bowls. I went right away and purchased them. I've had these for over 20 years. They're very heavy and I bring them out occasionally.

Baby blue blow is filled with pears. Faux, of course! :) You know how I feel about my fauxs. I love my fauxs and my fauxs love me.

Mama bowl is filled with faux apples. They are so pretty and shiny!

 Papa bowl is filled with mixed fruit! Hey, we could have a fruit salad couldn't we?

Now I just have to have a few yard birds scattered around. This most gorgeous couple was gifted to me by a sweet blogging friend. I think they're having a lover's spat at the moment because they're not speaking to each other.

I do hope my little couple make up soon because this silence is not golden! It's Blue, actually! :)

Grab a bowl and I'll get you some fruit loops! :)

Stylish Once Again for Restyled Sundays

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~
Crazy
Crazy, I'm crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy, crazy for feeling so blue
I knew you'd love me as long as you wanted
And then someday you'd leave me for somebody new
Worry, why do I let myself worry?
Wond'ring what in the world did I do?
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you
Crazy for thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying and crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you.

  9. Just heard the song on the radio, that's weird. Not the song, the fact you have it as your note song today and that I just listened to it on the radio on my drive home.
    Love your breakfast room, the hutch is charming and the blue and white tablecloth really pops there. I love your fruit loop bowls, I'm sure you have enjoyed them over the years. Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one with real stuff everywhere!
    You are a charmer today sweet Shelia………
