My Favorite Room

Hello, Dear Ones!

Here at Note Songs cottage, I dearly love my little sun porch.

It's located right behind our den and one step down.

I've filled it with wicker furniture and a few smiles! :)
Smiles are always good.

I've also filled it with lots of pillows I've made.

This is an olden table I repainted years ago and I play with vignettes here.
This is also the only 'real' wall' on the sun porch.

Sometimes I move the table over to the window and play again.
You can see this is the home of my Rooster lamp.
He never wants to perch any where else.
Do Roosters even 'perch'?

This little wagon was gift from a my mother from not so many years ago.
I always wanted a wagon as a little girl, but she thought it was a boy's toy.
So when I'm old she gets me one and I've poked in a few memory toys.

These shutters were on all of our front facing windows when we bought our house 
but they didn't work well so I just took the suckers off! 
I'm talented like that, you know! :)
So I took one, poked in the corner here and hung a couple little metal tins on it!
You can see my little shy angel approves! :)
See my cords? I hate cords!
But, alas, there are no plugs in here so I have to use extension cords and plug up in the den.

I love my little sun porch all the time really,
but it's especially sweet at Christmas time when I poke a little tree upon my olden table.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my little sun porch and thanks to Alison for hosting her party!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Since I Fell For You

When you just give love and never get love
you'd better let love depart.

I know it's so, and yet I know,
I can't get you out of my heart.

You made me leave my happy home.
You took my love, and now you've gone,
since I fell for you ...

Love brings such misery and pain.
I guess I'll never be the same,
since I fell for you ...

Well it's too bad, and it's too sad,
but I'm in love with you ...

You love me, then you snub me.
But what can I do, I'm still in love with you.

Well, I guess I'll never see the light.
I get the blues most every night,
since I fell for you ...

Since I fell for you.

Big smile here...we are both blessed in our lives to be able to enjoy our homes where laughter and love abound.
