January Basket

Hello, Dear Ones! Being that's it's still January, it's a little early for tulips so I thought what kind of flower can I use in my basket for January? Hydrangeas, of course! Well, I know they're not growing on your bushes yet but I think they work any time of year especially when they are faux. I love my fauxs and my fauxs love me. :)
 So I poked in hydrangeas, pine cones, little dried green things and berries and sticks! Sticks say January don't they?
So there you have it - my January basket filled with fauxs!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

You're So Vain

You walked into the party
Like you were walking on a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf, it was apricot
You had one eye on the mirror
And watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain,
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
Oh, you had me several years ago
When I was still naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, you're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
Well I hear you went to Saratoga
And your horse, naturally, won
Then you flew your Learjet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well, you're where you should be all the time
And when you're not, you're with some underworld spy
Or the wife of a close friend,
Wife of a close friend, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, you're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
~ sung by Carly Simon
