I've Flipped

Hello, Dear Ones.
I felt it was time to do some flippin' on my baker's rack in the breakfast room.

Here it is all dusted and flipped!

This is the way it was formally dressed.

 Well, I decided I would lighten and brighten it up a bit.

 Here's the top shelf. 
I brought in more whites and summery colors.

I've found a few treasures in the past weeks and the chicken tureen is one of them.
Isn't she cute? 
I'm loving her all cute like and sitting on her little nest and some cookbooks.
She can't read so I know it was okay that I poked a chicken one under her nest to raise her up a bit.

 I was just thrilled to find this pretty Westmoreland paneled milk glass pitcher.
So I poked in some blooms - faux ones, of course! :)

 Here's the second shelf. 
When I first got my baker's rack, I made little reversible runners for each shelf.
 I flipped them over to the toile side 
- lighter and brighter.

 I love my little hens on nests and have a couple more.
I'm always on the lookout for these!

 I kept out this cute little dish rack so I could poke some of my dishes in it. 
Look really closely on these first little plates you'll see some very sweet Roosters.
You know how I love my yard birds. :)

I keep a couple of my Le Cruset pots here so when I need one, they're handy.

Well, I've flipped! 
I'll be looking around my house to see what else can be flipped! :)

Pin It


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll live you with a little Note Song ~

The Change

One hand 
Reaches out 
And pulls a lost soul from harm 
While a thousand more go unspoken for 
They say what good have you done 
By saving just this one 
It's like whispering a prayer 
In the fury of a storm 

And I hear them saying you'll never change things 
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing 
But it's not the world that I am changing 
I do this so this world will know 
That it will not change me 

This heart 
Still believes 
The love and mercy still exist 
While all the hatred rage and so many say 
That love is all but pointless in madness such as this 
It's like trying to stop a fire 
With the moisture from a kiss 

And I hear them saying you'll never change things 
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing 
But it's not the world that I am changing 
I do this so this world will know 
That it will not change me 

As long as one heart still holds on 
Then hope is never really gone 

I hear them saying you'll never change things 
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing 
But it's not the world that I am changing 
I do this so this world we know 
Never changes me 

What I do is so 
This world will know 
That it will not change me

  3. Love it Shelia,
    Every detail is perfect ALTHOUGH I loved it before too! I'm "IN LOVE" with your bottom shelf with the Le Cruset pots(I have the one on the LEFT as my screen saver as a BIG HINT to Hubby that's it #1 on my WISHLIST). The little salt and peppers WON MY HEART TOO! """AND""" love the dish rack! I REALLY REALLY want a few of those to display "DISHES"!!! You understand, hehe! I WISH they sold the ones that they use in TJMAXX,etc to display the plates for sale. I would LOVE to have those for my cupboards...
    Thank you for the PEEK into your kitchen!
    Have a fun week,
    Big Hugs,
    Donna

  4. Hi Shelia, I'm back to blogging and visiting again. We had a fun two weeks with running the roads and shopping etc. I will be posting about our fun soon. I am happy to be visiting you again.

    Your new look is very nice but I like the before too. You remind me of my mom the way she changed things around constantly. I would come home from school and never know which way the living room would be decorated. HA! No matter what you change it always looks fabulous. I mean it!!!
    Love, Jeanne

  24. Hi Sheilia,
    Oh I just love your flipped baker's rack. Nothing like a little refresh now and then to give the whole room a new look. Love the red toile on the shelf and your whites are lovely. I adore your sweet chicken tureen. And, your milkglass pitcher is beautiful. You sure have the touch for display and it turned out fabulous. Those baskets at the bottom are perfect.
    Thank you for stopping by today and your sweet comment. So wonderful to see you.
    Have a blessed week.

  33. Shelia, I love how you flipped!! Woo hoo, love the changes for summer. I thinkk your chicken is too cute, as are the hens. I love the Westmoreland pitcher, too. I have that same Le Crueset red dutch oven. It's so heavy, isn't it?? Good thing you keep it close by. I have to lift mine out of the cupboard!! I also loved seeing the rest of your Currier and Ives collection...lucky you!! Love that cake tin, too. We were married in 1970. xoxo
