Hello, Dear Ones.
You know how it is ~ some days you just don't quite feel right.
But I figured out what was wrong with me. I'm so talented like that you know! ;)
I needed a bit of THERAPY.


any act, hobby, task, program, etc., that relieves tension

Yep, that's what I needed! 

 I got out and went thrifting and here's what I found!

 A darling bunny candy dish for 50% off! I love that!
I used this puppy for Easter and just may just have her hang around a while longer!
Paid $4.50 for it. 

 Ain't she purdy? :)
She's a very light yellow and so sweet.

 Then my most tiny heart skipped five beats when I saw this chicken and her chicks vase!
Oh, how I love her!
She's looks rather vintage and I am thinking of all kinds of ways to use her.

 My tiny heart was still skipping beats when I spied these two tiny chick lidded dishes.
Now I have four! Woo Hooness!

 Then I found this beauty!
An almost basket! 
It's not very baskety on the bottom so I'm calling it an almost basket.
But look at all the pretty fruit!

I know I can use this lovely piece many ways.

Now I feel so much better after I had my therapy treatment.
You may want to try it too! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

They're Coming To Take Me Away

Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to

leave because I'd go berserk?? Well...

You left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see

I've gone completely out of my mind.. And..

They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!

They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa
To the funny farm. Where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be
happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!!!

You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I had said

that loosing you would make me flip my lid.. RIGHT???
I know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed you laughed and
laughed and then you left, but now you know I'm utterly mad... And..

They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa,

They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the happy home. With trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket
weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haaa!!!

I cooked your food, I cleaned your house, and this is how you pay me back

for all my kind unselfish loving deeds.. Huh??
Well you just wait, they'll find you yet and when they do they'll put you
in the ASPCA, you mangy mutt!!! And...

They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa.

They're coming to take me away, ho-ho, hee-hee, ha-haaa.
To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy
to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they're coming
to take me away, ha-haaa!!!
To the happy home, with trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket
weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes and they're
coming to take me away, ha-haa!!!
To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time...

  1. Hi Shelia!

    Well I hope you are feeling better after your therapy... I know I always do ;)

    Now I am REALLY coveting that little Hen and her little chicks... what a darling little vase!!! Love those colors and vintage look.

    xoxo Bunny Jean
    Wednesday's Bunny Hop Party!

  2. You are so funny. I've had too much THERAPY lately. Gotta stop or my Mr. AGPMan is going to commit me.

    Love your finds!


  3. Hi Shelia,
    I'm going to therapy this weekend!
    I'm meeting up with my sister and brother and we are going to the big flea market in Raleigh,NC and having some serious brother sister time!
    Love all your finds. The almost basket is a winner and so are the chicks.


  4. All fun finds Sheila! Love the planter, it's so cute:@)

  5. I need some therapy, too! Love what you found and just know you'll enjoy each thing.

  6. Ah! There is nothing like retail therapy! Nice finds!


  7. Good morning Shelia, We have been in Fl and it is good to be home. I hope you had a lovely Eater. We sure did.

    I love your version of therapy. I also love each little treasure you found. They are right up my alley. HA!

    Have a happy time finding some perfect places to share them with us. You are so good at that. Smile
    Hugs, Jeanne

  8. Oops, Easter. Sorry about the typo.
    Me again

  9. Love the vase and all your nice finds. Yes, therapy is what I call it too. Sometimes you just gotta do it!

  10. I know if it worked for you that it will work for me. I'm planning some therapy this Friday, and I can hardly wait.

    I hope my therapy is as abundantly successful as yours.

  11. What great finds Shelia! Hope your week is going well!

  12. Your chicken candy dishes must be all the vogue. I have seen them on two more blogs recently. I love the rabbit. You are too cute with the "almost" basket. hugs, olive

  13. I DO LIKE YOUR KIND OF THERAPY MY DEAR! Roooster Hens and Rabbits are a must have.

  14. Oh I love your therapy treatment! Pain free and pill free! Ha! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  15. There is nothing like a little bargain hunting! Enjoy your new treasures!

  16. Yes, retail therapy is the best and I need some, too. Great little purdies.

  17. Shelia that's the BEST kind of therapy!! Great finds, I love that fruit basket!

  18. My kind of therapy! hehe! Love the little chicks, so cute!


  19. Shelia oh my goodness, what amazing incredible finds!!! I guess that was a very successful (and affordable) therapy!!! Loving your chicks and bunny and your almost-basket - gorgeous! Hope you'll be okay after this ;) Hugs ~ Mary

  20. Shopping (in a thrifty way) is my favorite therapy also! You found some really fabulous items this trip. Love that bunny dish and the chicks vase is adorable. That basket is a great find also. I think I feel a 'therapy' session coming soon! Hugs, Linda

  21. Retail therapy is a wonderful stress reliever. The little milk glass chicks are my favorites. I have one just like it from my childhood. Enjoy your day! Sally

  22. So cute!! I love that sweet bunny the most...not any shock there right? *laugh* I think I need a little therapy too!!! : )

  23. Great bargains and lovely finds on your therapy trip !

    I have a blue and white serving platter just like the one in you pic background. On Easter, my DIL said she inherited a whole set that matches that platter from her Grandma so I offered it to her ( I got it for FREE ) She said the dish set was in the attic somewhere...I said get it down and use it, enjoy that your Grandma wanted you to have her dishes !!!

  24. Oh what great finds. I love them all. The bunny, chicks and the roos vase, how fun is that. The fruit basket is stunning. I know you will really enjoy them all. Hugs, Marty

  25. That kind of therapy always helps me too Shelia! Everything looks lovely! :-)

  26. Seems like your therapy was very successful! You are really good at "therapy" too!
    We really sould go to therapy together some time!

  27. Shelia,

    A little retail therapy is good for the soul and you chose some wonderful things.


  28. Now that's the kind of therapy I like too! Looks like you had a great therapy session. Love all of your finds. The little chicks will look great in your home. I know they are all very happy to be in your home with someone that will take good care of them!

  29. Love all of your finds especially that basket! So pretty!

  30. found some great goodies! That basket has me green with envy...the fruit is so shiny, it looks new! And I'm glad you were able to add to your collection of covered dishes with the hens! Do you feel better now?!


  31. I love your new bunny dishes and the chicken vase is really cute and colourful. I remember that silly song in the 60's. Hahaha...

  32. Sheila, I want to go thrifting with you next time, wow! You brought home some very pretty items. Smiles...Lu

  33. Now that is my kind of the sweet little bunny...


  34. You are so smart!!! You knew just the therapy that you needed.:) You found some lovely stuff, I adore the little chicken with the chicks, just adorable!
    Hugs, Cindy

  35. I am a big fan of therapy! I need to go find some myself!! I love the hen and chicks vase. xo

  36. Hi Shelia,
    Your therapy looks like a great idea! I see three garage sales in the paper this week and 1 starts tomorrow! Love it!

  37. You got a lot of great finds, Sheila. I like the little mini white chicken pots and love the chicken and her chicks! BUT: Oh my Lord, I remember that song from when I was little! It used to scare the sh*t outta me!!!! When it would come on the radio, I'd have to run and turn it off. (Especially the end where it would be manipulated for his voice to be really high and maniacal!) Now you will have me thinking of that all night. LOL!

  38. I love your therapy Sheila! I did a little therapy myself today! Great finds!

  39. Shelia, I got some therapy today too and I feel great, too.
    The downside is that my therapy was more expensive than yours. I went to Hobby Lobby and Marshall's and it was difficult trying to keep myself from buying lots and lots of pretty spring things. I did enough shopping to help the country's economy so that made me feel patriotic and good. You found some very cute and useful things so no wonder you feel good, too. Enjoy you cute new finds!-----

  40. I am so glad you got your fix, Shelia. Anybody would with all those beautiful items....Christine

  41. Shelia, I'm loving it all. The glass bunny rocks. Love it.
    Thanks, Helen

  42. I've been in therapy for years now and I always feel so much better after a session! I had one on Wednesday and will be good for another week. LOL
    Like your finds, Shelia. :-) Sue


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 :)
