Gifts and Divas!

Hello, Dear Ones! Oh, I just have to share with you the wonderful giveaway I won from Shari at My Cottage of Bliss. Just look! I received all of these wonderful paper goodies in the beautiful colors of pink and green! Yay, for me!

I spread them all out on the table so you could see how much Shari sent me!

Look at this most beautiful little card. A lovely little watercolor.

Oh, tears popped up in my most gorgeous baby blues reading these sweet words from Shari!

Just look at all of my goodies...a sweet little journal, gorgeous file folders, a sweet little clipboard, pretty tags, grocery list pad, writing pad and note cards! There is also a matching pen to write with, but I failed to put it in here for the photo...I had just written something down with it! :)

Thank you, thank you, Shari. How very sweet and generous was this lovely giveaway. I really appreciate you drawing my most tiny name. Don't you just love this stuff?


Attention! Attention!! We must interrupt this post today to bring you the latest breaking news in the Land of Blog! Yes, Dear Ones, we do cover news stories in our most wonderful Blogland, but not just any newsy story...but Bathroom Stories! Yes, yes, Most What Are You Talking About Ones?

If you happen to be new to my blog, let me introduce my self! I am the Queen of the Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Divas! Yes, yes, Most Thinking Is She Crazy Ones! I am qualified to determine once and for all who is worthy to join this most elite group of Bathroom Snappers. I have just been informed we have had a Bathroom invasion and I am here, johnny on the spot, (cute, huh?) to do my Bathroom Business!

Okay, let's get down to the real Bathroom Business! I see a Most Gorgeous One, do you, Most Wided Eyed Ones? Yes, yes, just look at this most fashionably dressed one standing in a very lovely Bathroom! Her hair, oh, just look at her hair, Most Only Her Hairdresser Knows For Sure Ones...these most gorgeous locks are just shining with Bathroom highlights! Oh, hand me my shades, Most Squinting Ones! Thank you. Oh, she has the most creamyness of complexions and the most gorgeous peepers. Look at her smile ~ the most beautiful pearliness of whites! I see the most slender arms with dainty creamy fingers attached to a CAMERA! Yes, yes, yes! We have another honest to goodness Bathroom Diva, Most Jumping Up and Down Ones! I'm so excited! Okay, let's all catch our tiny breaths and see who this lovely one could be. Let's see...hum, she does look very familiar! Do any of you want to guess? I know, I know! This is our very own Penny from The Comforts of Home! I believe she is standing in her new Bathroom to be in her new home! Welcome, Dear Penny to the Bathroom crowd.

Oh, just a minute, just a minute, Almost Leaving Ones, I've just been handed another alert that another Bathroom has been invaded. Oh, my Bathroom job is just never done. You know I love it! :)

Okay, on with the Bathroom show, Most Getting Settled Ones...

This is getting so exciting! I mustn't let my guard down, because Most Gorgeous Ones are crashing through doors and invading Bathrooms all over Blogland. As I've said before, Most Don't Bore Me With the Details Ones, there are imposters out there, but I, the Bathroom Snapping Diva will not allow them to enter! No, no, Nannette!

Okay, enough of the Bathroom Details, I see another Most Gorgeous One! Can you see her, Most Farsighted Ones or is it Nearsighted Ones? She is beautiful! Look at her dress ~ she is dressed to the nines here! I see the most beautiful smile filled with the most pearlyness of whites! Lovely smiling twinkling peepers! And hair! Can you see those most gorgeous curled locks filled with Bathroom highlights! You can't get these kinds of highlights just anywhere! No, no, Nannette! Only in Bathrooms. I see the most creamyness of complexions and the most slender of arms with dainty creamy fingers attached to a CAMERA! Yes, yes, Dear Amazed Ones, we have another Diva! Do we know her? Why yes, we do! This is our very own Nikki from The Scarlet Rose Garden. She even cut some of her gorgeous locks for us! Actually, Dear Ones, Nikki is a returning Diva! You just can never snap enough for me! :)

Oh, Most Can You Believe It Ones, I love my job! Yes, I do! Now would you please hand me my crown, golden toilet brush. Oops, where is it! Just a minute! I can't go on without it! What am I going to do? Oh, there it is, Most Helpful One, just where I left it - by my golden toilet! What? I don't care how much gold is an ounce, these are my priceless golden jewels. Oh, never mind!

Now please stand in front of me, Dear Penny and Dear Nikki, as I crown you with the most sought after title in the Land of Blog! Oh, yes! Many have tried and failed! Many have coveted this title, but they were not worthy! But you, Dear Penny and Nikki have pushed through the Bathroom Door and snapped snapped away! Now, Dear Ones, I now crown you as Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Divas! You will be one now and for ever and ever and until the twelfth of never! Please take the Bathroom Beauty Snapping button that I have made with my own tiny hands and shine it proudly on your blog! Now, go and snap for the world to see, Divas Penny and Nikki!

Oh, Bathroom business does a body good! If you're wondering if you can be a Diva too and join this marvelous gang, yes, you can if your daring and brave enough. Just run into a bathroom of your choice (in my olden age I'm getting easy and will allow you to snap in front of any mirror), turn your camera's little flash off and snap your most gorgeous smile in the mirror. Post it on your blog or either email your snaps and I will post you here on Note Songs and crown you before all of Blogland. Then you can take our little Bathroom button that I so meticulously made with my own dainty creamy tiny little fingers and proudly display it on your blog. Now don't be a little chicken, just do it! Snap snap snap on, Dear Ones!!

I'm exhausted now, Most Please Shut Up Already Ones, and I think I'll retire to my throne! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Keep Smiling

Keep smiling, keep smiling, keep smiling, keep right on smiling

I know sometimes your whole world seems blue

Seems like the whole weight of the world is resting on you

But remember when you hang your head, it’s hard to see the sun

There’s a brighter day, yes it is, just ask and I sure will come

But you’ve got to keep (keep smiling) well, ooh, yeah

(keep smiling) keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on

(keep smiling) ooh, ha (don’t you ever stop smiling)

Oh, don’t you ever stop, no, no, no, oh, when you’ve got to keep on stepping on

You know that you’ve got to be strong and understand the facts of life

You won’t get no place until you make some sacrifice

Try to make it a little easy when you’re doing it on your own

Once you think you’ve got everything, the next day it’s all gone

But you got to keep (keep smiling), well, well, well, well (keep smiling)

Oh I know it’s hard, I know it’s hard, but you’ve to keep (keep smiling), oh---

(don’t you ever stop smiling) yeah, yeah---, oh-----, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh---

Yeah, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, (keep smiling) keep a grin on your face yaul

Keep on stepping now, (keep smiling) oh, keep your head up to the sky

(keep smiling) oh-got to notice on the tip of your eyes, (keep smiling)

You’ve got to keep on, keep on, keep on, (keep smiling)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, (keep smiling), ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha---

(keep smiling) oh--keep on (don’t you ever stop smiling) smile, smile---

(keep smiling)
