What Cha Doing?

Hello, Dear Ones.

Like I said, what cha doing?

I've been as busy as a bee with life. 
Just like so many of you.

I'm glowing with glitter again...

making Glitter House.
Oh, how I love making these little cardboard houses.
I'll show you when I'm finished.

I'm resting a tad and a sweetly scented candle is always calming.
Notice the scent ~ Lemon Pound Cake ~ works for me! :)

Well, my resting time has to stop ~ gotta fix Mr. Precious some dinner.

Oh, I did make some peanut butter fudge.
Just sayin'.

Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The Candyman

Bill: Who can take a sunrise
Sprinkle it in dew
Cover it in chocolate
and a miracle or two?

The candyman

The candyman can
The candyman can cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow

Wrap it is a sigh
Soak it in the sun
and make a strawberry lemon pie?

Children: The candyman?

Bill: The candyman

The candyman can
The candyman can cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

Willy Wonka makes

Everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes
You can even eat the dishes

Who can take tomorrow

Dip it in a deam
Seperate the sorrow
And collect up all the cream?

The candyman

Children:Willy Wonka can

Bill: The candyman can cause he mixes it with love

And makes the world taste good
And the world tastes good cause the candyman thinks it should

  4. Hi Shelia, I've been right out straight since I got back from my daughter's 2 weeks ago as my sister has been home visiting. This week she is at our sister's so I've had a bit of a break and am trying to catch my breath! We've had a wonderful time galavnting around the countryside and taking tons of pictures. It's been a busy but very good summer! Take care! Hugs, Pamela

  5. Are you kidding me, peanut butter fudge and we're the last to know?!

  8. Hello Sheila,

  9. Hi Shelia *hugs*

    I can't wait to see watcha making with the glitter...I know its a cute house with glitter. You are so good at that. Now are you using other cardboard than the cereal...or you have been saving them for a while?

    have a wonderful long weekend...hope that nasty ole weather is not around your way...

  10. Oh yummy!!! I love peanut butter fudge. Beautiful vignette on your island!

  11. Shelia- Are you making those little glittery houses that look like they are dusted with sugar? I hope if you are that you might be able to share some type of tutorial on them. I would love a little village for my Christmas mantle. Stay busy and stay sweet-o Diana

  12. Shelia: How could you forget to mention that fudge?! Love your red and white message and looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful glitter houses. Shhh. Just keep this between you and me, but I'm already looking at some of my old Christmas magazines! I just can't help it..Happy Thursday..Judy

  17. Hi Shelia,
    Can't wait to see your glitter houses!

  18. Glad you are having a good time, glitter girl!

  19. I have been sick, so not much has gotten done. I am trying to play cash up now. I just took a break to check out my blogger friends.

  20. Busy as a bee... yet cheerful as always....! Ah.. can't beat that! :)

  21. a good productive day, & that peanutbutter fudge looks good!

  22. I could just dive in on the fudge an eat a big chunk right now,have you already shared the recipe? if so point me in that direction cause I want to "pin" to my recipe's.

    Can't wait to see the glitter house.

  23. It sounds so relaxing, Shelia, I am so jealous cause I have so much to do today, clean up after Hurrican Isaac. Wish I could have some of those peanut butter fudge right now! Your vigentte looks so pretty...Christine

  24. You are killing me with fudge and pound cake(candles that smell of food make me hungry). Love that pitcher Shelia.

  25. No, no, no! Don't show me fudge until Christmas time! PLEASE! ;)

    I think since you've been making so many glitter houses that you should give some away. Don't you agree? ;)

    I've been purging and packing over here and trying to keep my back in line. No easy feat! Other than that, I'm also feeling really bossy. :)

  26. Ahh! Can't wait to see what you've been up to! I like your picture in fact it reminded me of some I took and never posted. That peanut butter fudge looks awfully good!
    I'm hanging out around my home- moving sprinklers to keep things watered and reading blogs!
    Take care, have a great weekend!

  27. What am I doin? I am drooling over lemon pound cake and peanut butter fudge. Yes I am. Thanks to you. HA! I am also picturing you making yet MORE of your darling houses. I still haven't made one but I copied your instruction sheet and I am doing it as soon as I catch my breath from all the goings on here in our small town that has BIG activities. LOL.

    Tomorrow I am going to a giant Flea Market. YAY!!! Hold me back and don't give too much money Bill or you will be sorry you did. Note: I do not need a thing but that won't stop me.

    Happy days to you and yours Shelia.
    Love, Jeanne

  28. Oh dear, I think I have to work out after reading this post! Ha! Love Lemon Pound Cake candles and your red roo & pitcher too! Jane

  29. OH, such lovely things make up your vignette. Love the color and toile! Such a sweet little pitcher. Oh my that fudge! Would love to join you for a chat and treat.
    Have a safe and Happy Labor Day Shelia.

    The French Hutch

  30. Always so love your beautiful home decor, Shelia. You have a knack for rich warmth. BUT... where's MY fudge? Hmmmm? That is like dangling a million $$$ bill in front of someone. Mother used to make the old fashioned kind that you sat for HOURS & beat until your arm newarly fell off. Then she would put it in the pans to set. THEN she would hide it ... & the search began. It was her special gift to many at Christmas. Well, one year I found the entire batch & we 5 kids enjoyed ever licking (notice the world licking) bit ... & didn't sit for a good while.

    Enjoy your holiday weekend ~
    TTFN ~
