Spring On The Windowsill

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm still in the breakfast room decorating for Spring and thought I would show you what else I've been doing.
 I just adore this windowsill and have so much fun decorating it whenever I like. I do tend to go a bit overboard sometimes and I think this time is one of the overboard times! :) You know I'm so talented like that. I felt all villagey and went to town setting one up on the windowsill.
First I tossed down an old runner I made years ago and it's the same fabric as the chair seats in here. It also has all of the same colors as my curtains do. See, I'm talented like that! :)
Little bit of Blue for Blue Monday
 I've had these little pieces for a very long time now. I don't have the dishes that go with them but if you visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, she usually has her little porch hutch set up with these. Here sits a big cookie jar and little creamer, both poked upon a little chest topped with a Battenburg lacey.
 See? Cuter than a pumpkin's ear is this large pitcher. I'm supposing this is the local Starbucks!
 Then the salt and peppers. They make wonderful bushes for my little village. I don't believer the little tray goes with these but I'm using it anyway. Hey, it's a flower bed!
 Here is another cookie jar I've had even longer. My daughter gave me this many years ago. Alas, there are no cookies in either cookie jar. I didn't eat them though, just sayin'. :)
Every village needs a pink cake stand with a pretty white pitcher filled with flowers too. Nothing like a neighborhood community flower garden.
 There is also a little pink cake stand with another little house sugar bowl on it. It's covered with flowers and this is where the 'flower lady' lives. Do you see the two little white houses with blue roofs? Well, we flew KLM one year back from Italy and they gave each of us a little house. For years I just thought they were cute and picked one up to dust it one day and heard some liquid swishing around in it. Well, what do I know? These little houses were filled with some sort of liquor. Since I don't drink, the liquid is still in there! :) There is some wax on the chimney that has it sealed in. I'm guessing the town drunk lives in one of these houses.
 Just a sweet little village street filled with darling little houses and blooms and a little liquor.
 Lots to see on this village street with flowering cottages, bushes and a village flower garden. Not to mention a Starbucks.
You just never know when you're poodling around town and driving through neighborhoods what you're going to find.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Our House

 I'll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase
That you bought today

Staring at the fire
For hours and hours
While I listen to you
Play your love songs
All night long for me
Only for me

Come to me now
And rest your head for just five minutes
Everything is good
Such a cosy room
The windows are illuminated
By the sunshine through them
Fiery gems for you
Only for you

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you
And our la,la,la, la,la, la, la, la, la, la, la.....

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you
And Our

I'll light the fire
And you place the flowers in the vase
That you bought today
