Whiteout on the Table

Hello, Dear Ones!

I've changed the top of my coffee table in the den.
A kinda whiteout!

 I'm still being a bit lazy and just took my big ole pitcher with the tulips off my mantel and poked it down on my coffee table.
Hope it's still okay be tuliping in May!
I'm a poet too! :)
Well, I poked it down on a silver plated tray.

 I love this big ole white pitcher and my faux tulips!
Can you love a big ole white pitcher filled with faux tulips?
You bet your allergied itchy eyeballs you can! :)

I had just turned around to answer the phone and when I looked back at my tray,
a mother bird and her two little babies had landed. 
I think they're making this there home for the moment.
They have certainly contributed to the whiteout! :)

Hope you're all getting warm weather where you are now.
It's been in the high 80s here and my allergies are pounding in my tiny head!

Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Bird Song

All I know is something like a bird within her sang,
All I know she sang a little while and then flew on,
Tell me all that you know, Ill show you snow and rain.

If you hear that same sweet song again, will you know why? 
Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passin by,
Laugh in the sunshine, sing, cry in the dark, fly through the night.

Dont cry now, dont you cry, dont you cry anymore.
Sleep in the stars, dont you cry, dry your eyes on the wind.

All I know is something like a bird within her sang,
All I know she sang a little while and then flew off,
Tell me all that you know, Ill show you snow and rain.

~ sung by The Grateful Dead


  1. Lazy works got me! We're going from warm, dry weather on vacation to moderate temps at home. I'm getting anxious to putter and fuss with my 'stuff' at home.

  2. It's almost time for the "lazy days" of Summer. Love those little birds that landed on the tray. And, speaking of the tray, I've envious.

  3. Shelia, I love your white out. I'm a white lover from way back.

    Looking forward to seeing you this weekend at The Pink Saturday Fourth Birthday Celebration.♥

  4. I love all your 'whites', Shelia. We are having hot, humid weather, too. It's more like July than May. Ver stange, isn't it? Have a wonderful Memorial weekend. Enjoy! Hugs, Deb

  5. Hi Shelia! I love those sweet birds who came to roost while you were on the phone. I hope they stay for a while!

  6. Looks fabulous and I love tulips, I think they are fabulous anytime. Great birds too. Hugs, Marty

  7. Lovely white-out, with some beautiful little birdies like that would fly into the house and land on my table :) Sorry about your allergies, hope they clear soon. We're expecting temps in the high 80s this weekend in VA. Hugs ~ Mary

  8. I'm so sorry to hear that your allergies are acting up. I suffered for several weeks with mine in early Spring. Thankfully, they're gone now. You must have something blooming around you that is triggering it. Love all your white accessories on the coffee table. I love white, so you know I approve! Ha!

  9. Sweet birds and I love the tray too. I say tulips are for spring and summer too:)
    Have a great weekend.

  10. It all works for me! I collect white ceramic anything and I also have birds all over the house. And yesterday I added my white silk flowers to my white pitcher...Great minds think alike!

  11. Love it! Happy Memorial Day sweet lady. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  12. Beautiful!!! Oh Yes, My tulips are still OUT TOO! Your display is SO SWEET. LOVE those little birdies "Singing Your Song"!!!
    Have a fun weekend,
    Big Hugs,

  13. Loving the 'white out' on your table!

  14. The white vignette is very pretty and fresh! Love the little birds! :)

    Hope your headaches get better! We have had the longest season of allergies I can remember in the Carolinas!

  15. What a "White Out!!!" Love the tulips, I've got them out too! Aww, those are just the sweetest little birds ever! Great little vignette, sweet Shelia!

    Have a great weekend!
