Sunshine and Light


Hello, Dear Ones!
I wanted to share my little breakfast room table with you.

A table covered with sunshine and light.


I love my little covered chicken bowls.
I think we'll have a bit of chicken salad placed in these.

Next I've popped down my decoupaged plates.
A little more sunshine.

Then! Ta Dah!
I found four of these plates and one little dessert plate for $2!!
Can you turn a cartwheel for me!
I rock, don't I? :)

I'm using these sweet little green plates as chargers.
So many of you have them and they're so cute!

Hop a long little bunnies.
Do bunnies and chicks go together?
Well they do on my table!
Just sayin'.








Here's a simple centerpiece filled with sunshine and light.

You may remember these mums from my almost dinner party.
I'm milking the heck out of them!
They're still filled with sunshine though.
I poked a few in my little pitcher and then sat it down on my only dessert plate.

Nothing like a proud Rooster! :)

This is one of my most favorite pieces.
I adore this darling hen with her chicks vase.
It's olden and precious!
She's also holding a touch of sunshine.

Well, there you have my table filled with sunshine and light.

Pin It


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

Harmony and understanding

Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

When the moon is in the Seventh House

And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius
Aquarius!
Aquarius!
Aquarius!
Aquarius!

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in

Oh, let it shine, c'mon

Now everybody just sing along
Let the sun shine in
Open up your heart and let it shine on in
When you are lonely, let it shine on
Got to open up your heart and let it shine on in
And when you feel like you've been mistreated
And your friends turn away
Just open your heart, and shine it on in
~ sung by The Fifth Dimension

  4. Mums always make a room prettier.. They added even more light bright and happy to an already beautiful setting.. I love the scape you did for many reasons but mostly because , while I would feel special sitting there, it wouldnt make me nervous like some table settings do.. umm did I make sense with that comment. Please know I mean it as the highest compliment.

    I also want to thank you for visiting me and leaving such kind, uplifting comments. I look forward to your words and your sweet smiling face.

    xoxo

And, I see you sing "You Are So Beautiful" to your Schnauzer Girl too!!!!! I was sure I was the only one!!! We must be kindred spirits!!!

    1. Hi Kathy! It's so nice to meet you and I'm just thrilled you like my blog. And...you have a little Schnauzer! Aren't they just hoots! I went to reply and you don't have a blog. So I hope you'll come back and visit me often.

  12. Shelia,
    "Walking In The Sunlight" is what came to my mind as I viewed this delightful tablescape, dear friend! Lovin' those mums and the bunny plates! I've been considering making a purchase of cabbage salt & pepper shakers to go with my cabbage tureen...almost, you've persuaded me! I have two of those covered chicken dishes from my beloved Mother ~in ~law, but hadn't thought to put a salad inside. Neat idea! Thank you for your continued sweet comments and visits On Crooked Creek. I feel so blessed with your friendship!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  34. That is a darling table setting! I love how country it is and fresh. The light lemony yellow color mixed with bright white and green looks so cheery. The personality you added with the roosters is just right. I'd gladly sit at that table and have a continental breakfast if I could.

  36. This truly IS filled with sunshine and light!!! Very nice!!! I'm so glad you've gotten a lot of mileage out of your flowers, too. I had some that literally stayed in pristine condition for three weeks!!! Lots of bang for the buck there! I really like those covered rooster dishes, too. They would be cool with SO many table designs!!!

  44. Shelia, I love your pretty chick and hare table. Could be billed as a harry chick flick! Love all your sweet little roos. The one standing tall on the orb looks like he is ready to announce the dawn. The colored chicken vase is my favorite of all. She really has class. Love it!
