Got You Cornered!


Hello, Dear Ones!

 Thought I'd show you one of my little kitchen corners.
I'm just showing you one because my Christmas present,
the new KitchenAid mixer, is presiding  in the other corner now - permanently! :)
 Okay, you know I love my little olden scale.
A blogging friend pointed out that it weighed in grams instead of ounces!
I had not even noticed this!
Anyway, she's sporting another doily made by my grandmother and a tiny little cloche with a teeny little apple poked underneath.

 Another favorite piece is my olden Jadeite bowl filled with apples and grapes.
Very healthy and faux, of course.
I love my fauxs and my fauxs love me.

There's my little corner all filled with favorites and fauxs.
You know I love this stuff! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~ 

You Make Me Feel Brand New

My love, I'll never find the words, my love
To tell you how I feel, my love
Mere words, could not explain

Precious love, you held my life within your hands
Created everything I am
Taught me how to live again

Only you came when I needed a friend
Believed in me through thick and thin
This song is for you
Filled with graditude and love

God bless you
You make me feel brand new
For God bless me with you
You make me feel brand new
I sing this song 'cause you
Make me feel brand new

My love, when ever I was insecure
You built me up and made me sure
You gave, my pride, back to me

Precious friend, with you I'll always have a friend
You're someone who I can depend
To walk a path that sometimes bends

Without you, life has no meaning or rhyme
Like notes to a song out of time
How can I repay
You for havin' faith in me

God bless you
You made me feel brand new
For God bless me with you
You made me feel brand new
I sing this song for you

~ sung by The Stylistics

  3. Oh I'd like to have cornered some things as pretty as these things you have, and yeah, younger families don't, so I do hope some day my girls like these lovely things too. Thanks for sharing, sweet Shelia! Have a great weekend.

  4. I love that little scale you have. The cloche would look adorable with a bird and nest vignette inside if you changed your decor over for spring. Lots of love

  17. Love the scale vignette. I know the metric system better because of being a nurse. I have to ask Joe about pints and such all the time-he thinks me unbalanced:}

  26. I'd love a little corner like this to decorate. My big 'ol microwave is in the corner! I adore your scale, I have been wanting one FOREVER! Is yours new (as in not old!)? I've seen some on ebay with prices through the roof.

  31. Your little corner is beautiful, I was surprised to see that there were no hens or roosters hiding out there, though. :) The scale is beautiful as are the faux fruit.
