Soup's On!

Hello, Dear One! Well, the soup is not really on but the tureen's are out!
 I have to admit, since spring I've been a bit of a lazy decorator. I got all inspired when spring came and I did decorate my home but I just kinda left it that way. Grandbabies were here, we traveled, I was know, excuses! :) So I came into the dining room and tore it up! Took everything off the tops of every thing and out of everything and dusted and cleaned. Made me feel so good. But you can't leave a room nekked can you?
 I have a small collection of tureens and thought they might just look nice poked down upon my server, which I never named by the way. I do name some of my furniture pieces, do you? Well, I'm getting off topic.
Now you can see them a little bit better. I have a couple more chicken tureens that you've seen that are currently in my breakfast room hutch. There is one more tureen sitting in the middle of my table that you can see in the first snap.
All are white and picked up at different thrift shops through the years. It was fortunate for me and my tureen that they all had their ladles. Now that Fall is close upon us, I thought with all of my white here I could just add some pumpkins and such and I'd be all ready for the season.
You might see a little white cow creamer blending in with the tureens. I thought I needed a cute little cow creamer in the vignette. She is actually a bigger cow creamer. I love my cow creamers and have neglected them for some time. She wants to be Falled up too when the time comes.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow

Tonight you're mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment's pleasure
Can I believe the magic of your sighs
Will you still love me tomorrow

Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I'm the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now and I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow
Will you still love me tomorrow
Will you still love me tomorrow
Will you still love me tomorrow

  1. Hi friend! Oh, how I love your collection. I've visited a few blog friends today who are experiencing cooler temps and are in the mood for soup! I posted about filling a jar will fall potpourri and the "blog police" gave me a hard time for rushing the season! lol lol Show us your vignette again when you DARE to add the pumpkins! ha ha

  2. Naw Mildred, fill up the Fall potpourri all you want. The heat has been relentless here and anything Fall is good:). Sheila, love the tureens and honestly I've been wanting a cute cow creamer and PW has some cute ones too:). Embrace the last days of summer and your beautiful Fall before Mr. Winter knocks at your door.
    Love Carole King, had her Tapestry album. Kathleen in Az

    1. Yes, she does. I have the little white one with flowers on it and just love it! I know, that Carole King wrote some wonderful songs.

  3. Shelia, you have quite the tureen collection! They are all so pretty. I could see your sweet vignette all decorated with Fall accents! You're halfway there!!

  4. Wow, that is an impressive collection I love them all.

  5. You have a pretty collection of tureens. Your all white display will look beautiful when you add in your fall colors!

  6. Love your tureens! I need to think about Fall decor but it's still too hot!!

  7. I do love your collections. These cooler temperatures do have us thinking about fall. It was 60 degrees in Ohio this morning so these cool mornings have me considering making some soup.

  8. Hi Shelia, I was able to visit with my phone!! Love your gorgeous collection of tureens. The arrangement you display is stunning. I have 3 white tureens in my little collection but after seeing yours I am inspired. Looks so good with the redware.
    Have a great week. Blessings xo

  9. I love Carole King and of course all of your pretty white dishes. I have a small white tureen. Hugs, Diane

  10. Those are just GORGEOUS! Will look so pretty with fall colors too. I see my cows cousin prancing around there! Lol i do love my creamers!

  11. Tureens! Oh how I love them! I have a white tureen packed away from a move or two ago. I must, must find it! Love your sideboard too!

  12. Now Miss Shelia...where or where do you store all those beautiful serving pieces you have? Simply beautiful! I have a weakness for soup tureens! Hope you have had a lovely summer...are you ready for fall?

  13. Love your collection! And the little cow creamer is cute ♥

  14. Look at your beautiful tureen's! Love them! I cannot believe that I actually passed up two tureen's recently at a thrift store. DANG IT! Love the white! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  15. You are giving me a wonderful idea! I have a beautiful tureen that I rarely use and it's all fall colors. Coming up from storage soon! Yours are fabulous!

  16. I've been seeing such wonderful white tureens every time I snoop through thrift and antique shops. I've had to be brave and not buy them all. Not the time to to start another collection - but I would if I thought I could get away with it! Love your tureens and love what you've done with them.

    P.S. - My blog is down and I'm struggling to get some support to fix it. Hope it's not long before it's up and running.

  17. Nice collection of tureens. Look great on your server. They will look nice with pumpkins scattered about in the fall.


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
