I'm Tasseled Now and And I've Had An Exciting Three Weeks! :)

I'm so thrilled because I have two exciting things to share with you today! First of all, I have met Susie at susieharris.blogspot and she is just the most precious thing! Besides, being precious, she has an amazing talent of making gorgeous tassels. Well, I love tassels and found a couple she'd made that I just didn't think I could live with out so I ordered them! She sells her amazing works on Etsy. Here is the link to buy homemade things along with other precious cuties:

I received a little package in the mail yesterday and oh, oh, oh, I was jumping up and down and Chloe Dawn was barking at me!!
I opened up the box, and look...pretties!
Susie had put in the box these marvelous rooster tags that were tied with green and white checkered ribbons! She knows I like the roosters. What a surprise! See, I told you she was precious!!
Then in the bottom of the box were these two white parcels wrapped in white tissue paper. Be still my heart! Well, don't be 'still' but just calm down a little!

First of all, I unwrapped this gorgeous little chicken tassel! I thought I needed at least one cute chick to keep all the boys on their toes. Isn't she darling?
In the other parcel was this most charming little tea pot tassel you've ever seen! Look how very dainty this is!
Now, I knew immediately where I was going to hang Ms. Prissy. Yep, done named her! She would be awesome looking hanging from the knob on my pantry door. This way she would be out of reach from those old roosters!
Her colors just match my kitchen perfectly! Even looks good with my 'Martha Pot'.
Now to the little dainty tea pot tassel. I could hang her here on my hutch in the breakfast room...
Look again at how beautiful this is!
Or I could hang her from the little knob on these little shelves in the breakfast room...
or I could bring her into the dining room and hang her on the knob of my china cabinet. Yes, that's where I think I'll let her hang out for now! Tomorrow is another day! No telling where she might end up!
I love my new tassels! I feel as if Susie made them just for me! Please go and check out her tassels, they really are wonderful. I think I'm going to start my Christmas shopping early this year. Now ____ needs a kitty tassel, and ____ needs a doggie tassel, and ...


I Have Had An Exciting Three Weeks!!

Dear Ones, the second thing I'd like to share is, I've been blogging for three weeks now! This has been such a wonderful experience and fun time for me! You have all welcomed me with open arms into Blogland.

In just three weeks I feel I've made some wonderful friends. Some of you I met through Rate My Space and now it's such a joy and privilege to see your sweet faces and be able to chat with you more. I've enjoyed getting to know a little bit about you so much in these three short weeks: how you decorate, your wonderful recipes, your precious pets, your craftiness, your trips, your happiness, your sadness, your expectations, on and on I could go. My journey is just beginning and I thank you all for your kindness, encouragement and the technical help you've given me!

Love you all and just wanted to toast to our future days together ~ blog on, dear ones!

Kisses, hugs and remember to always be a sweetie - Shelia ;)

  1. I love that Rooster tassel!!! It looks perfect right where you hung it, too! How fun :) PS: I am here on your page so I can do the Song Tag today...I will let you know when I have posted it :)

  2. You're right! Susie makes adorable tassels! I have one too. I'm so glad you're enjoying your blogging experience. I'm relatively new too and it's been so wonderful to meet so many amazing women.

    Keep at it!

  3. I love tassels and even tried, as failed, to make some myself. I am so going to visit Susie's site.

    I can't believe I've only known you three weeks. You already feel like a good friend and I'm so happy to have met you.

    Thank you for sharing your memories of little Sugar. My husband rarely reads anything on my blog but I made sure he read your comment. We were both touched.

  4. Hi Sheila, I just posted my Song Tag post, that was fun :)

  5. THREE weeks? That's all? I can't believe you've ONLY been here for 3 weeks!! It seems I've known you longer than that!!!

    Boy, the tassels are gorgeous. Her "link" in your post doesn't work for me...and I'd really love to see what she has.

    You know...I have to check your blog a couple times (or more) a day!!! You're always adding something!! Yep...cutting my own hair is sometimes a "pain"...and I have to be in the mood to cut it...or it has to be soooooooo unmanageable that I CAN'T STAND IT NO MORE!!! That's what it was the other day, when it got cut!!


    .........running out the back door now...tag sales, garage sales beckon~~

    \0/ <---that's me waving!!! LOL!

  6. What gorgeous tassels! You are so blessed. They are perfect in your home. Wish I could stop by and look for myself! Would you just enjoy them for me? ~Adrienne~

  7. Good morning Sheila,
    I just found your blog. I am not too sure how this works yet. You have given me so many nice comments on my spaces at RMS and it is so nice to see you in person here. You have a beautiful blog setup and I have enjoyed seeing it. God bless you. I too am a Christian and sing and write songs also. Have a blessed day. I am "penndelgirl" on rms. Phyllis from SC
    Love those tassels!

  8. I love your tassels! If you get the chance come see the one I ordered from her! I just love it!

    Laura :)

  9. I love these! I hate to sound uniformed but what's Etsy and do you have an address to it? When you said "tassels" I never expected something so cute!

  10. I love these! I hate to sound uniformed but what's Etsy and do you have an address to it? When you said "tassels" I never expected something so cute!

  11. Love those tassels! Your home looks lovely...
    Thanks for visiting me!


  12. Those are some sweet treasures! Is it Christmas already? :) Thanks for your advice on my pink bathroom yesterday, I really appreciate it!

  13. Oh Miss Sweet Shelia... I cant believe you have been blogging for only three weeks... I feel like I have been your dear friend forever... Thank you for allowing me to appear on your blog with all of those nice comments... My week has been made by you!... (((hugs))).. Susie h~

  14. It seems like longer than three weeks though, doesn't it? And hasn't it been fun? I was just telling hubby last night (not that he was listening) that we've made such a beautiful little blogging community between the bunch of us that visit each other daily. I actually get a little choked up when I think of how much you all have come to mean to me. We have the opportunity to get to know each other on a totally different level than we would have had we met in a store, or a restaurant. Imagine meeting someone for the first time at a restaurant and telling them your food quirks, or how you peed the bed! NOT!

    And oh my, those are the most gorgeous tassels I've ever seen in my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I liked the way the tea pot looked with your plates!

    Justine :o )

  15. wow Shelia, when you said tassels I was thinking tassels to go on your pillows that you make LOL LOL those are fantastic ohhh I think I need some, lol so far I have 2 pictures on my new blog whoo hoo! trying to add one of those birdsong tags & it just wont go on there, oh well it'll all come out in the wash LOL

  16. Hi Helen, I still can't find a place to leave a comment on your space, so I'll just leave it here. Now about that piano playing the background - that's similar to how I like to play old fast hymns - a little jazz touch to 'em.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  17. I think that Rooster tassel was envisioned just for you.
    Congrats on your 3rd work anniversary. We have you hooked now. You'll find quickly that it's hard to live without Blogland now. Thank you for being such a sweetie!
    *hugs* Shimmy Mom

  18. HI Shelia, I had the guest book taken off my website a long time ago due to people leaving links to nasty sites yuck ! anyway's as soon as I get the hang of the blog you'll be able to comment there, it's a lot different set up than I have over on my bravenet one , but I'm getting there LOL

  19. Shelia, love both of them!We need to get more of the RMS into blogland. Would love to Vicky Darnell, decoratior 101 and a lot mor. Kathy

  20. Oh how precious those tassels are!!! She is one talented lady! What a good idea you have for xmas shopping too. I'll have to go take a look see! Oh and ditto on the making such wonderful blogging buddies, love y'all!!

  21. I'm feeling rather tassel deprived all of a sudden and the link on your page isn't working.... I even went to Etsy and typed in her name and that didn't get me there.

  22. Kay, the only way I know to respond to you is right here. Thank you for stopping by. I have just tried my link for Susie and Etsy and they are both working.
    Come back and love you.

    Shelia ;)

  23. Oh my goodness! I agree with the other ladies- it does seem like it's been longer than three weeks! You do seem like a dear friend already!!!
    LOVE the tassels- I really do need to get over there and order one but I am really having a hard time choosing!!
    I love where the teapot one ended up! That was my choice!!!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Have a great evening sweetie!
    -Heather :)

  25. Wow what great photos you took! I need to get me some tassels too. I love the one with the rooster.

  26. Sheila, I can't believe it's only been 3 weeks since you've started blogging, you have such a beautiful bloggie home! Your words and smiles jump through the computer and makes me think of tea time :).

    Your tags and tassels are gorgeous!

    Kathi :)

  27. I love those tassels! They are beautiful and are perfect in your home.
