Olden Vignette


Hello Dear Ones.
I sat up a little vignette on my breakfast room table and wanted to share it with you.


 This little cutie is the central attraction here on my table.
I found her recently at a thrift shop and she stole my heart.
Don't think all I do is shop! :)
I poked a few little flowers in the baskets she's carrying.

Look at her darling little face and little kerchief around her little head. 
She looks like an olden piece, doesn't she?
I believe she is but there's no markings on her.

 I added this teapot given to me by my daughter many years ago.

 If we're having tea we need cream and sugar.
More olden pieces.

Please sit down, grab you a cup and we'll have a spot of tea!

Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Take A Chance On Me


If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(That's all I ask of you honey)
Take a chance on me

We can go dancing, we can go walking, as long as we're together
Listen to some music, maybe just talking, get to know you better
'Cos you know I've got
So much that I wanna do, when I dream I'm alone with you
It's magic
You want me to leave it there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can't let go

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(Come on, give me a break will you?)
Take a chance on me
Oh you can take your time baby, I'm in no hurry, know I'm gonna get you
You don't wanna hurt me, baby don't worry, I ain't gonna let you
Let me tell you now
My love is strong enough to last when things are rough
It's magic
You say that I waste my time but I can't get you off my mind
No I can't let go
'Cos I love you so

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa ba-ba
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

  4. I can't decide which piece of this darling vignette I like best! I think the tea pot would be first, then the statue and sugar & creamer tying for 2nd place! xo

  16. Hi Shelia, Yes, we had a grand time being together. One sister was missing. she had to take her daughter to the doctor. This week we sisters are all together helping my oldest sister move into a new home. We are having fun painting and decorating etc. AND CLEANING...Yuck!

    Your table looks very pretty as always. Your girl with the baskets is darling. A great find. I love thrift shopping too. A big dose of happiness is always a great feeling when we find a treasure.

    Time for bed so goodnight my dear sweet friend. I hope we can meet up in June.
    Hugs, Jeanne
