My heart is breaking and my prayers have gone out to the folks in Boston and West.
God, cover us with Your protection.

Hello, Dear Ones!
for featuring my home tour! Your comments just blessed my heart!
If you missed the tour of my home and would like to see it, just click HERE.
If you don't know Cindy, please pop in to see her as her home is gorgeous and she's as pretty as a picture and just as sweet!

Okie dokie!
Some of you mentioned you liked seeing Edra so I thought I'd give you a closer look at her.
What? You don't name your furniture? :)
This is just one of my many talents...naming my furniture!
You know I'm teasing but I really do give certain pieces names.

This is Ms. Edra who lives at the top of my stairs.
She is affectionately named after my mother whose middle name is 'Edra'.
I think it's a pretty name.

This is how Edra looked in all of her glory after I had purchased her from Craigslist.
My little Mother went with me and she talked the lady who was selling her to come down on the price quite a bit! So naturally I had to honor my little Mother with a namesake! :)

After I had painted her red, she stood in my entry for about a year!
I had fun changing her dress out for each season.
See her cute little shelves on each side?
This was also before we changed the flooring to granite tiles.

She's a different looking little piece don't you think?
Kind of a cross between a secretary and a hutch.
And just look at her shapely legs.

The first Christmas I had Edra, she had to be moved from the entry so we could set up the Christmas tree there where it always goes.
Well, she's been at the top of the stairs ever since.

I usually keep dishes in her and right now she's sporting these olden ones.
A closer peep at my olden dishes, Homer Laughlin China ~ Brittany Majestic pattern.
The bowl in front is something I found at Marshalls years ago.

Just in case you were wondering, this little white box is one of Mr. Precious' play toys.
He has security cameras up around our home and he had the audacity to set one on top of Edra!
Well, Edra doesn't seem to mind. She thinks she's a hotty and the camera just adds to her mystique.

I certainly hope you've enjoyed viewing Edra today.
She has really enjoyed all of the attention! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


She's got legs, she knows how to use them.
She never begs, she knows how to choose them.
She's holdin' leg wonderin' how to feel them.
Would you get behind them if you could only find them?
She's my baby, she's my baby,
Yeah, it's alright.
