Girly Girl

Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, I'm seeing some of you are already thinking and poking up 
a little Autumn decor in your homes.
I'm behind. I don't think I've changed my mantel in months
so I decided to redo it.

 I just girly girled it up. 
Yep. Chicks, white and pink. Girly girl all the way.
 I added this sweet little pink checkered pitcher up on a little pink cake stand
and poked it full of pink hydrangeas. Faux of course.
 I don't think I've ever put tureens up on my mantel before, especially chicken tureens.
Here I've added a big one and then a silly little one.
 The other side, another big chicken tureen and two little Roosters on stands.
But for the sake of my mantel I'm pretending these are chickens on stands.
 Okie dokie. My girly girl mantel. 
Kinda plain and simple but definitely girly girl.
Pink and white.
 I almost forgot. I got girly girl on the hearth too.
Grabbed a little tool box, poked in a pink and white doily made by my grandmother.
Then...I poked in some more hydrangeas. This time a little darker pink. 
Girly girl.
There you have my girly girl mantel. 
I asked Mr. Precious what he thought and he just smiled! 

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~  I love the group Bread and I love this song

It Don't Matter To Me

It don't matter to me
If you really feel that
You need some time to be free
Time to go out searching for yourself
Hoping to find
Time ... to go to find

It don't matter to me
If you take up with
Someone who's better than me
'Cause your happiness is all I want
For you to find
Peace ... your peace of mind

A lot of people have an ego hang-up
'Cause they want to be the only one
How many came before it really doesn't matter
Just as long as you're the last
Everybody's moving on and try to find out
What's been missing in the past

And it don't matter to me
If your searching brings you back together with me
'Cause there'll always be
An empty room waiting for you
An open heart waiting for you
Time is on my side ...

'Cause it don't matter to me ...
It don't matter to me ....
It don't matter to me ....
It don't matter to me ....
It don't matter to me ....
It don't matter to me ....

'Cause there'll always be
An empty room waiting for you
An open heart waiting for you
Time is on my side ...

'Cause it don't matter to me ...
~ sung by Bread

  3. very sweet just like Miss Sweet n Petite.. that looks mighty pretty and its still summer.~! Folks need to quite rushing fall. Bloggers are like retail stores, I'm sure Christmas decor will be posted before we can enjoy Halloween. I should be used to this after 5 years, but I'm not...

    Enjoy your pink every moment.

  13. Shelia, you are so cute -- I love to read your posts. :) Your mantel looks charming, very girly and oh so cheerful! I love the pink checked pitcher and I NEVER tire of hydrangeas. I especially like your rooster (chicken) finials. I agree with Sonny that everyone needs to stop rushing the seasons; I'm glad to see you're still enjoying summer.
