Playing On The Table

Hello, Dear Ones.

I decided it was time to put something on the coffee table in the living room.

 I also changed out the pillows on the sofa and added these soft mossy green ones.

 I pulled out a couple of cloches and poked them down on the table.

I found these little mossy balls at either Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

 So I sat the big one on a little crystal vase and squshed it under the cloche.

 Did the same thing with a medium sized green mossy ball.
I just left the third green mossy ball sitting on a soft mossy green runner all scrunched up.
I learned to scrunch up runners from Marty at A Stroll Thru Life.

As you can see, my little helper/companion is never too far from my side.

Hope you're all doing well.
I've been busy teaching myself to use Microsoft Excel because I need to make some spread sheets for Mr. Precious.
I'm doing it and stretching my tiny mind! 
You know I just amaze myself sometimes! :)

I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Green, Green

Green, green,
It's green they say,
On the far side of the hill.
Green, green,
I'm going away to where
The grass is greener still.

A-well, I told my mama
On the day I was born,
Don't you cry
When you see I'm gone.

You know there ain't no woman
Gonna settle me down.
I just gotta be traveling on,

Nah, there ain't nobody
In this whole wide world
Gonna tell me how to spend my time.
I'm just a good loving rambling man,
Say, buddy, can you spare me a dime?
Hear me crying, it's a...

Yeah, I don't care
When the sun goes down,
Where I lay my weary head.
Green, green valley or rocky road,
It's there I'm gonna make my bed.
Easy, now...
~ sung by The New Christy Minstrels

  42. Good morning Shelia, I love your pretty green balls displayed so sweetly on your coffee table. Simple elegance.

    I have been fighting with Excel too. My garden club yearbook is a mixture of Word and Excel. I holler for Bill when someone sends me a page on Excel. It is just different but I know people love it. I am not so sure I do. HA!
    Have fun learning. I know you can do this my sweet friend.
    Love, Jeanne
