New Chick on the Block


Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, we're back from the ball and I told you I would take snaps.
 I didn't get to because I had a couple of responsibilities that kept me busy before it started.
But I did try taking a few snaps with my tiny little pink Olympus, but the lighting was low and they just didn't turn out.
But...we had a marvelous time and Mr. Precious and I did get a snap taken by the photographer and when we receive it, I'll show you.

Okay, it is good to be back home and I wanted to show you 
'the new chick on the block'.

 Isn't she a looker?
Oh, I just love these chicken candy dishes and think I've started a new collection for myself.
I pick them up when I find one at a good bargain.

 I told you she was a looker and at $7.00 I just screamed!

 This little gal is a tad bit different from my other ones.
She's a little bit smaller, her little head is turned slightly and her tail feathers are separated.

 Not to mention her color.
Isn't this pretty?
It's sort of a greenish blue.

 She looked so cute and was so happy to pose for a snap.
The lighting in my kitchen was J.U.S.T.  R.I.G.H.T.  :)

And besides, I wanted to show you my new olden scale again.

I'm joining A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Chick-Fil-A Song (to the tune of "God Bless the U.S.A")


If you lined up all the restaurants
Where I've eaten all my life
Give me five bucks, some napkins
Plastic fork, a plastic knife


Then you gave me the choice
To pick where I'd eat today
That's a real easy decision
One that's not too tough to make


I would proudly go for some waffle fries
And a jumbo size sweet tea
And I won't forget the chickens who died
Who gave their life for me


So I grab this sandwich - Take a bite
Put it back down on the tray
Yea there ain't no doubt I love this place
God Bless you Chick-Fil-A


From the city of Atlanta
To the hills of Tennessee
Louisiana and Texas
New Jersey and DC


So people up to New York
And all over LA
Will be craving Fudge Nut Brownies
And the Diet Lemonade


And I raise a toast with my milkshake
To the mocha with caffeine
And I won't forget the chickens who fried
Who gave their life for me


So I grab this sandwich - Take a bite
Put it back down on the tray
Yea there ain't no doubt I love this place
God Bless you Chick-Fil-A

  43. Love your little hen, she reminds me of the collection of turkey candy dishes that Martha Stewart has, and used in her first PBS special, way back in the early 80's...

  44. I love her, Sheila. She's so stylish as she's Pantone's color of the year: Emerald. Their version of emerald is more blue green. Great find, and I would have squealed at the price, too! :D
