This One's For The Girls





Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, I'm still playing in the breakfast room and thought I'd show you my little baker's rack
filled with everything just for us girls.


 First I'll show you my little shelf above it and where I decided to put my Royal Sealy Heritage Blue canisters. You can read about when I got them HERE
 They're pretty girly, aren't they?

 I know you so want to see what is on each shelf so I'm gonna show you! :)
There's my new coke bottle green chick front and center 
sitting in front of an olden Pfaltzgraff platter.
A sweet blogger told me that was the color and she is so right! 
It's exactly the color of an olden coke bottle.

 Cute little companions to a pancake breakfast!
That's a very girly breakfast too.

This is one of my favorite thrifted pieces. 
Isn't she and her babies darling?
Girly, girly!

 I decided I'd bring out all the girls for a little stay in the breakfast room.
I think I need some more.

 Girls...
 girls...girls.
 I thew in a little girl pie bird for good measure. 
Never know when you might need a girly black pie bird! :)

Here's my Le Creuset shelf with a few Roosters poked down.
They're interested in the girls! 

This shelf stays the same...
I keep my olden girly rolling pins in the left basket and my girly salt and peppers in the one on the right.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave your with a little Note Song ~

This One Is For The Girls

This one's for all you girls about thirteen
High school canbe so rough, can be so mean
Hold onto, on to your innocence
Stand your ground when everyone's giving in
This one's for the girls

This is for all you girls about twenty-five
In a little apartment, just trying to get by
Living on, on dreams and spaghetti-o's
Wondering where you life is gonna go

This one's for the girls
Who've ever had a broken heart
Who've wished upon a shooting star
You're beautiful the way you are
This one's for the girls
Who love without holding back
Who dream with everything they have
All around the world
This one's for the girls

This is for all you girls about forty-two
Tossing pennies into the Fountain of Youth
Every laugh, laugh line on your face
Made you who you are today

This one's for the girls
Who've ever had a broken heart
Who've wished upon a shooting star
You're beautiful the way you are
This one's for the girls
Who love without holding back
Who dream with everything they have
All around the world
This one's for the girls

Yeah, we're all the same inside
 From 1 to 99
This one's for the girls
Who've ever had a broken heart
Who've wished upon a shooting star
You're beautiful the way you are
This one's for the girls
Who love without holding back
Who dream with everything they have
All around the world
This one's for the girls
Yeah, this one's for the girls

Mantelfestation


Hello, Dear Ones!
Come on in to my den and I'll show you my mantel.

 I really don't have Valentine decorations but poked up some red and thought that would do it.

 There's Chloe Dawn trying to get into the shot!


 I just had to show you my new wreath that a friend gave me.
Now guess what?
These little roses are made from wood shavings.

 It's really pretty and I love it.

 If you visit me much I'm sure you've seen these urns with the topiaries.
They hopped back up on the mantel.

 I filled a little crystal bowl with faux sugared fruit.
You know me and my fauxs.

 Then a couple of little Staffies ran out of the doghouse and hopped upon the mantel.

Love my little Staffies!
This is as close to a Valentine mantel as I'm gonna get.
But believe me I'm gonna get close to some Valentine candy!
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

My Funny Valentine
My funny Valentine, sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable, unphotographable
Yet, you're my favorite work of art

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't change your hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay!
Each day is Valentines day

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't change your hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay!
Each day is Valentines day

More Glitter (less) Houses


Hello, Dear Ones!
Guess what?
I was walking through my dining room and looked at the china cabinet and realized I still had these little glitter (less) houses sitting on the shelves.
Well, POOP! I said.
Poop has been on my mind lately because poor little Chloe Dawn has had diarrhea and I've been been cleaning up...well, you get the picture.
Now back to my glitter (less) houses.

 I grabbed a handful of glitter (less) houses and poked them on this empty tray and thought...
hum, this is kinda cute!

 So, I'm showing you a tray filled with little glitter (less) houses that I made back last summer.

I'm sure this has just made your day, hasn't it? :)
Lie and tell me it has! :)
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ ( I couldn't help myself with this song)

Cow Patty


He'd cut you just for standing
And shoot ya if ya tried to run
He was big as a tree and did as he pleased
And everything he did was bad
And they said if you was to kill him
It'd only make him mad

From the good lands came the cowgirl
Patty was her name
She was hot on the trail of that killer
On a moped she called Flame
Coz the killer had killed her daddy
For spittin' in the road
You only had to kill her daddy once
To get that girl P.O.'d

Yippie eye eh Cow Patty
Yippie eye eh Cow Patty 
She rode into town to find the man that killed her daddy
Yippie eye eh Cow Patty

The killer hit town at daybreak
Ate the door of the local saloon
He started to drink you could tell
He was thinking there'll be a showdown soon

Patty hit town in a cloud of dust
Ol' Flame was buzzin' like a saw
And the whole town got quiet as a church
When the killer stepped out for the draw
Forty shots rang out
Forty people fell
Patti and the killer missed each other
But they shot that town to hell

The killer took a step towards Patty 
Said it's time I gunned you down
But he slipped in something that was layin' in the street
And was shot before he hit the ground
Yes, the killer slipped and it cost him his life
And Patyi said as she roared out of town
You gotta watch your step
When you know the chips are down

A Little Tablescape


Hello, Dear Ones!

 In my last post I showed you my little breakfast room hutch with a little Valentining and now I'm going to show you my tiny table with a little Valentining.

 Didn't want to disappoint anyone so I poked down a couple of my yard birds.

 I found this bowl a few years back and it just screamed "Valentiine Me!"
So...

 It was poked full of little homemade hearts.
Valentined as promised!
Just so you'll know how talented I am - I made the hearts! :)
Please know I'm teasin', sort of! ;)

 Oops! Looks like one little heart fell out of the bowl.
That's okay. It's my favorite color - today! :)

Now maybe I should bake some Valentine cookies and then my life would be content.
Well, maybe a little ice cream on the side would make it perfect! :)
Yep, that would do it.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;) 

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I Just Fall In Love Again

Dreaming, I must be dreaming
Or am I really lying here with you?
Baby, you take me in your arms
And though I'm wide awake
I know my dream is coming true

And oh I just fall in love again
Just one touch and then it happens every time
There I go I just fall in love again
And when I do, I can't help myself
I fall in love with you

Magic, it must be magic
The way I hold you when
the night just seems to fly
Easy for you to take me to a star
Heaven is that moment when
I look into your eyes

And oh I just fall in love again
Just one touch and then it happens every time
There I go I just fall in love again
And when I do
I can't help myself
I fall in love with you
Can't help myself
I fall in love with you

Valentining in the Breakfast Room Hutch


Hello, Dear Ones! 
I did a tiny little bit of Valentining in my breakfast room.
In my little hutch.
I'm still loving my sweet green color of it.
I believe 'green' is my favorite color ~ today!

See?
Valentining!

 I always start at the top.
Poked up a trio of yard birds.
You know how I love my yard birds.
Can you love yard birds?
Well, you bet your chicken feathers you can!

 As you can see, I mixed a few different dish patterns.

 Here's a coffee server with sugar and creamer 
(different patterns but same colors ~ I'm just so clever to mix patterns like thisyou know).:)
These are sitting on a crocheted doily made by my grandmother many many years ago.

 I poked a few little homemade hearts here and there.

 Now on to the second shelf.

See that purdy yard bird?
He was a gift from my sweet friend, Jeanne from Backyard Neighbor,
who came to see me last year. 
I still love him, Jeanne! Thank you! :)

Another sweet little piece all Valentiney looking.

 Then the top shelf.

 Another little heart poked down.

Thanks for popping in to see me today and  hoped you've enjoyed seeing the Valentining that is going on in my little hutch.
Now where did I put that chocolate candy? :)

I'm joining Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday

I'll leave you a little Note Song ~

And I Love Her
I give her all my love
That's all I do
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too
I love her

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my lover brings
She brings to me
And I love her

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her

New Chick on the Block


Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, we're back from the ball and I told you I would take snaps.
 I didn't get to because I had a couple of responsibilities that kept me busy before it started.
But I did try taking a few snaps with my tiny little pink Olympus, but the lighting was low and they just didn't turn out.
But...we had a marvelous time and Mr. Precious and I did get a snap taken by the photographer and when we receive it, I'll show you.

Okay, it is good to be back home and I wanted to show you 
'the new chick on the block'.

 Isn't she a looker?
Oh, I just love these chicken candy dishes and think I've started a new collection for myself.
I pick them up when I find one at a good bargain.

 I told you she was a looker and at $7.00 I just screamed!

 This little gal is a tad bit different from my other ones.
She's a little bit smaller, her little head is turned slightly and her tail feathers are separated.

 Not to mention her color.
Isn't this pretty?
It's sort of a greenish blue.

 She looked so cute and was so happy to pose for a snap.
The lighting in my kitchen was J.U.S.T.  R.I.G.H.T.  :)

And besides, I wanted to show you my new olden scale again.

I'm joining A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday
Be a bunch of sweeties,

Chick-Fil-A Song (to the tune of "God Bless the U.S.A")


If you lined up all the restaurants
Where I've eaten all my life
Give me five bucks, some napkins
Plastic fork, a plastic knife


Then you gave me the choice
To pick where I'd eat today
That's a real easy decision
One that's not too tough to make


I would proudly go for some waffle fries
And a jumbo size sweet tea
And I won't forget the chickens who died
Who gave their life for me


So I grab this sandwich - Take a bite
Put it back down on the tray
Yea there ain't no doubt I love this place
God Bless you Chick-Fil-A


From the city of Atlanta
To the hills of Tennessee
Louisiana and Texas
New Jersey and DC


So people up to New York
And all over LA
Will be craving Fudge Nut Brownies
And the Diet Lemonade


And I raise a toast with my milkshake
To the mocha with caffeine
And I won't forget the chickens who fried
Who gave their life for me


So I grab this sandwich - Take a bite
Put it back down on the tray
Yea there ain't no doubt I love this place
God Bless you Chick-Fil-A
