More Olden Stuff

Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm just having the best time with my olden things.
Hope you're not tired of seeing them.

I just love setting up little olden vignettes in the kitchen.
A few months back I purchased this most darling little Rooster pitcher from Beverly at How Sweet The Sound. She has a Blog Shop party each Monday. It's for bloggers who have a few things they want to sell and they can link them to her party! I saw that pitcher and had to have it. It belonged to Beverly's mother. I love it, Beverly.
Look at these most darling oil and vinegar bottles. I fell in love with them too. They're just perfect!
If there's a Rooster on something - I'm a goner! ;)
This is my newest olden purchase. I had seen this at Beverly's party and thought - I need that.
Then while poodleing around town I found this one for $2! Bingo!
I can tell you the Rooster and little cow get along very nicely.
Precious as Pie.
And a cock-a-doodle-doo!
Look at this olden worn butter dish I found!
It was truly love at first sight!
This must have been a very loved and used butter dish.
Look at all of the cracklings. Is that the word?
Anyway, love love!
I poked in an olden cookbook of mine! 
The first publishing was in 1948 but mine was published in 1970. 
Vintage all the way, baby! :)
Just a bunch of pretties!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Honey Honey

Honey honey, how you thrill me, ah-hah, honey honey
Honey honey, nearly kill me, ah-hah, honey honey
I'd heard about you before
I wanted to know some more
And now I know what they mean, you're a love machine
Oh, you make me dizzy

Honey honey, let me feel it, ah-hah, honey honey
Honey honey, don't conceal it, ah-hah, honey honey
The way that you kiss goodnight
(The way that you kiss me goodnight)
The way that you hold me tight
(The way that you're holding me tight)
I feel like I wanna sing when you do your thing

I don't wanna hurt you, baby, I don't wanna see you cry
So stay on the ground, girl, you better not get too high
But I'm gonna stick to you, boy, you'll never get rid of me
There's no other place in this world where I rather would be

Honey honey, touch me, baby, ah-hah, honey honey
Honey honey, hold me, baby, ah-hah, honey honey
You look like a movie star
(You look like a movie star)
But I know just who you are
(I know just who you are)
And, honey, to say the least, you're a dog-gone beast

So stay on the ground, girl, you better not get too high
There's no other place in this world where I rather would be

Honey honey, how you thrill me, ah-hah, honey honey
Honey honey, nearly kill me, ah-hah, honey honey
I heard about you before
I wanted to know some more
And now I know what they mean, you're a love machine
~ sung by Abba

  4. Lots of nice roosters in your olden vignettes.

  5. Oh yes, precious as pie! I'll have to check out that blog shop party! ♥

  6. Love the crock, butter dish with crazing, and the oil and vinegar jars. I went to an estate sale this weekend two days in a row that had a table full of vintage roosters. I had to stay away as I bought a chair and a dresser. and pillows but the roosters get to me too. xo, olive

  7. Ohhhh, the rooster pitcher if perfect, I love it:)

  8. Love your new-to-you treasures of oldie goodies, Shelia!

    I am lovin your country farmhouse vibe!!

  9. Oh, I love it all! I have a sweet spot for roosters in my kitchen! these pieces are all great!

  10. I just LOVE your Olden Roosters :-) ! Hope you and your hubby had a safe trip to see that lovely grandaughter of yours!

  11. Your roosters look so happy! I love the chippy and cracked look of them also. Sweet finds!

  12. You always find those roosters, don't you - and the cutest little things to add to your collection! ♥

  13. I pinned some roosters on Pinterest a little while ago, and thought of you!

  14. You have the neatest old pieces, Shelia! You really have quite a collection going. I just love how you put things together. And that song? Oh- I can remember dancing to that- I was the Dancing Queen (another Abba song!;>) xo Diana

  15. Shelia, I have a slightly older edition of the same cookbook. My husband bought it for me, because I needed simple recipes like how to boil potatoes. I'm not kidding, I needed step by step directions then...maybe still! Love your new toy/RV. Y'all will have fun with that, but nothing can compare to your grands.


  16. I just love that you use the word "olden." You are a unique thinker and I love that! The cookbook looks like something I could sit and read for a very long time.

  17. Fabulous shares of your roo treasures, Shelia. Hope you join me on bloglovin' also.
    Happy safe 4th, my friend ~
    TTFN ~

  21. Hi Shelia, We too hve been gone with our kids camping as usual. Now they ae all here for another week so I have not been on my computer much. I caught up with your posts and Carter is just beautiful in the sweet photo you shared. Have a wnderful time with your dtr and family.

    Love your mini RV and the inside is just too convenient. No wonder you are in love with it. We love our RV fifth wheel but it is a pain to haul it around. Have fun taking trips in your new fun RV.

    See you soon I hope.
    Love, Jeanne
