Getting Back To Basics

Hello, Dear Ones. Well, it just dawned on me that my blog has gotten off track! I've been having a ball with my little miniatures and went back and counted and I've had 12 posts on miniatures just since June! This is a lifestyle blog and I've let my blog down. So I'll space out my mini posts. I think I've even lost a few viewers because it just came to me - not everyone is thrilled about looking at tiny little things! Can you believe it? So...
I decided I would put together a little vignette on my breakfast room table.
Not long ago we kept our little grandchildren while my daughter and son-in-law traveled to Portugal. Guess what they brought to me? A Portuguese Rooster napkin holder! He's so ugly, he's cute! You know what I mean. Yes, I know, the napkins look gaudy against his red but that's all I had.
I didn't have a pretty cake to put under the dome of my Jadeite cake stand so I just poked a little Rooster under there. Roosters always work.
And...you know how much I love Milk Glass so I just had to poke a little dish down and toss in some apples, faux of course.
One last snap to show you! Have you heard about the photo poodling program called Dreamscope? Well, it's free and it's fun. You can piddle with your snaps and that's just what I did and just for you!
Okie dokie, I may have some withdrawals but I promise I'll post other stuff and and space out my miniatures posts. I promise! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

 The song I'm leaving for you today was sung by Patience and Prudence and I wanted you to see how young and sweet looking they were. They had the sweetest little voices and their harmony was beautiful. Look them up on Youtube!

Gonna Get Along Without You Now

Mm-hum, mm-hum, gonna get along without you now
Mm-hum, my honey, mm-hum, my honey
Gonna get along without you now
You told me I was the neatest thing
You even asked me to wear your ring
Then you ran around with every girl in town
You never cared if it got me down
Mm-hum, mm-hum, gonna get along without you now
Mm-hum, my honey, mm-hum, my honey
Gonna get along without you now


Got along without you before I met you
Gonna get along without you now
Gonna find somebody who's twice as cute
'Cause I didn't like you anyhow
You told everybody that we were friends
But this is where our friendship ends
All of a sudden you changed your tune
You haven't been around since way last June
Mn-hum, mm-hum, gonna get along without you now
Got along without you before I met you
Gonna get along without you now
So long, my honey
Goodbye, my dear
Gonna get along without you now
