New Yard Birds!


Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm so excited today to bring you into the den to see my new Yard Birds!

 You know Yard Birds aren't just for the kitchen, don't you?

 I found this precious pair and just had to bring them into the den so I could see them all the time.

 Aren't they the most darling little pair?
 Dashing Mr. Rooster...
 and most gorgeous Mrs. Hen!
 When I saw them, I just flipped!
Madly in love, I was and had to have this little pair.
So I immediately started grabbing things to make a vignette.

 I poked down this sweet platter that I fiddled with a few years back.
This is a Fashion Plate with fabric mod podged on the back.
If you'd like to see how I did it you can click HERE.
 These greens are found sitting here on this table a lot so today is no exception.

I'm as happy as a dead pig in the sunshine with my new Yard Birds.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

 Barn Dance

One night as I was sleeping 
Something awakened me  
There was a light on in my barn so I went down to see
I peeked through the big ole crack in the door  
And what do you think I saw  
The animals were havin' a barn dance right in the horse's stall
And there was the chicken doin' the chicken reel 
 And the muskrat rambled on  
The old cow did the cow-cow boogie and the rooster crowed a song
A mouse came out of his hidin' place 
And he danced on one leg  
The old hen got so tickled that she almost laid an egg
They were all dressed up for the barn dance  
It made me want to laugh  
The rabbit wore a big bow tie and the pig was a looking in the looking glass
And the goose danced with the gander till an old dog buddied in 
The horse was horsin' around a lot till the mare got mad at him
And there was the chicken doin' the chicken reel  
And the muskrat rambled on 
The old cow did the cow-cow boogie and the rooster crowed a song
A mouse came out of his hidin' place 
And he danced on one leg 
The old hen got so tickled that she almost laid an egg
And there was the chicken doin' the chicken reel  
And the muskrat rambled on  
he old cow did the cow-cow boogie and the rooster crowed a song
A mouse came out of his hidin' place 
 And he danced on one leg  
he old hen got so tickled That she almost laid an egg

  17. Shelia your new 'yard birds' are very cute and look great in the den! I expect they will 'roost' several other places before you are done with them! It's a beautiful day here and I hope you had a great weekend also. Sending you and your Mom a hug and hoping she is doing well!
