Bits & Pieces


Hello, Dear Ones!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
This post is going to be a little bit of this and a little bit of that!

 After church, we came home, got comfy and I finished our Easter lunch.
Here's Mr. Precious and Chloe Dawn. 
She looks so disgusted because she's been begging for ham 
and I hadn't given her any yet.

 You may have seen my Easter table already.
Well, here's Mother and me getting ready to put more food on the table. 
Oh, I'm trying to let my little tiny boy hair grow out some. I hope I can stand it! :)
 
 Okay, do you know Michael Lee at Rattlebridge Farm?
She hosts Foodie Friday and is Bloglands most wonderful author.
She showed a cheater's cake last week and I thought, I'm gonna try it for Easter.
You can visit her and see the cake HERE.
Just so you will knos, hers is much prettier.
Dear Ones, it was easy, pretty and tasty! :)
Thanks Michael Lee! 

My friend Linda from A La Carte came for a visit and brought me gifts and chocolate!
You can read about her visit HERE if you'd like.

Then I purchased a little darling vintage Rooster pitcher from Beverly at How Sweet The Sound.
You all know she hosts Pink Saturday but did you know she has started hosting a weekly linky party called Blog Shop for those of us who want to sell off some of our loot.
If you'd like to find out about it, you can go HERE
This was her mother's little picther and I just fell in love with it!

 This is my little grand daughter, Carter, and she has just celebrated her 3rd birthday.
It's hard being a very loooooooooooong distant grandmother.
But I do the best I can with pictures and Skype.
 Our daughter loved My Little Ponies when she was little. I had saved them for her and we took them to Carter this past fall. Carter fell in love with all the little ponies and when her mommy asked her what kind of birthday cake she wanted she said, 
"Rainbow Dash!"
Well, my daughter made her one. 
No mold. She just baked two sheet cakes, put them together and cut out the shape.
Isn't it so cute?
Look at all of the different colored icings she  made.
I was so proud of her and Carter loved it!

 One more cute shot of Carter being a princess and as you can see ~
 she can fly! :)
Look at those little tootsies!

Like I said y'all, this post is just bits and pieces of little tidbits of my life!
I just love bits and bobs, don't you?
Oh, and of course chocolate! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The 59th Street Bridge Song

Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.
Hello lamppost,
What cha knowing?
I've come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in' doo-doo,
Feelin' groovy.

Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.
~ sung by Simon and Garfunkel
