Playing With Little Richard

Hello, Dear Ones! I want to thank you all for your suggestions about whether or not to paint my little antique table in the entry. I've decided to leave it as it is. I thought long and hard and think that's the right decision. I can always count on you, my sweeties.

Okay, it's time to play and it's Little Richard's turn. Do you give some of your furniture names? Well, I kinda do and if you haven't met him yet...I'd like to introduce you to Little Richard.
 I changed up the top and wanted to show you what I did.
 That's Little Richard way back there in the corner behind the piano. I'm going to paint him but just haven't done it yet. One of these days. You've probably seen this snap before.
 I like this angle as I can see my balloon valance in the mirror. I'm milking it, I know! :)
Always love to have a few little birdies around and they flew right down here for my vignette!
 Again, bringing in more blues, I poked down my large Blue Willow platter.
 And these little bitty butter pat plates, not sure what they are but I have six of them and poked them under a cloche.
 Just having fun and playing with Little Richard.

One more little peep at my balloon valance! :) I'm milking it, I know! 
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

  2. Well, that balloon shade is cute enough to get a few "milkings" out of it. lol
    You can always paint the table someday but you can't UNpaint it....good choice, I think.
    Happy to see Little Richard dressed for the Sunday show. xo Diana

  3. You're too funny. I've never heard of naming the furniture. I'm going to have to think on that one. I am loving all the blue pieces along with the birdies. How charming.

  6. I hate to see good furniture painted especially if it's a quality piece. Little Richard looks great all dressed out!

  7. I can understand milking the lovely valance :)

    I like to see good furniture retain it's original finish if possible :)

  12. Well, of course Little Richard was one of my favorite R&B's singer, back in the day. :)
    I like YOUR Little Richard, too. Your new home is sure coming together and getting your personality added.
    Love it.

  13. Hi Shelia,

    I think you have more fun in your home(s) than should be legal!

    I'm glad you're not painting some of your wood furniture; that means you agree with me!

    Thanks for playing today.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  14. Love Little Richard and all the beautiful things he holds, especially the birds! I also like the little plates under the cloche -- that's a different way to display them and very effective!

  16. Hi Shelia, LOVE little Richard. How gorgeous you made him look with your Blue Willow Platter and all the pretty accents. Got to have a few little birdies for the springtime and how sweet they are on the books. Darling little BW plates under the cloche. I must add a few to mine from your inspiration.
    Sweet view in the mirror too.
    You home is lovely and you sure have done a lot since you've moved in. With your talents, you've made her a charmer.

    I'll be bopping to that tune all day now. LOL
    Hugs, CM

  19. Little Richard's lookin' good, Shelia! VERY tutti frutti! Your home is so welcoming. Very fond of that blue!

  20. And well you should "milk" it, Shelia! : ) You did a great job on your valance! Love your vignette with the blue and white. I have some small Johnson Bros. Friendly Village dishes that, I think when I shared them, people told me they were berry dishes. I think they make for a nice side dish for vegetables (not that I've used them that way yet).

  26. That is such a beautiful vignette, Shelia! I don't name my furniture, except for the occasional "this old icky thing," but that's probably not what you are getting at....lol! I think Little Richard looks very handsome with all the blue and white dishes.
