Wimpy Wimpy Wimpy - Hefty Hefty Hefty!

Hello, Dear Ones! I'd like to share some happenings in the dining room!

I 've had these little lamps sitting on my "Little Richard" in the dining room for some time. I took a good look at them and realized they were so wimpy!! Too dinky!!

So...

...from wimpy wimpy wimpy to hefty hefty hefty! I'm loving these new lamps!! Went shopping at Hobby Lobby and these were half off! Fantastic! Love a bargain and love my new lamps! Can you love new hefty lamps? Well you bet your little light bulbs you can! :)


Here I will give you a closer look.

I'm just loving everything about these new lamps. Look at the pretty finial, tiny little edging, a little bit of gathering on the corners of the shade, pretty shapely body and the base is just so nice. Also look at the top photo on the right - the lampshade is lined with this pretty paisley fabric.

Well, with a change of new lamps on the "Little Richard" (olden buffet that once belonged to my friend Richard) I was going to have to make a change on the top of the "Little Richard". You do name your furniture too, don't you? :)

Ta dah!! Newness of top on the "Little Richard". A little bit of springness!


One more look at my new lamps! I'm milking this aren't I? As they say, milk does a body good ya know! :)


Nothing like a little springness in the dining room to put a smile on my most gorgeous tiny face! :) You know I'm kidding!

It's beginning to look a little like Easter on the "Little Richard", don't you think?


These are some sweet little rabbits I've had for sometime but they live upstairs and I'm always forgetting about them! Shame on me! They're so cute!





This is a fashion plate that I made last year. Well, I didn't exactly make the plate but I did Modge Podge the fabric to the back and I love it! Can you love Modge Podged fashion plates? You bet your stuck together fingers you can! :)


Can't have Easter without an Easter basket and I have the perfect one! Olden glass Easter basket filled with eggs! Lovely faux Easter eggs. Faux eggs are great because they will never go bad and will never smell rotten. Not that I've ever experienced that, I'm just sayin'. :)
Now if you'll look ever so closely at the base of the Easter basket you'll see a teeny tiny little bunny spreader just in case my little rabbits need it to slice their little eggs! They have such nice manners! ;)


Well, there you have it, Dear Ones...a change in my dining room!

I'm joining our Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday.

I'm also joining our Dear Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

I'm joining our Most Beautiful Cielo at The House in the Roses for Show Off Your Cottage Monday.

And, last but certainly not least, I'm joining our Dear Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Wonderful Wonderful

Sometimes we walk hand in hand by the sea And we breathe in the cool salty air, You turn to me with a kiss in your eyes And my heart feels a thrill beyond compare Then your lips cling to mine, it's wonderful, wonderful Oh, so wonderful my love. Sometimes we stand on the top of a hill And we gaze at the earth and the sky I turn to you and you melt in my arms There we are, darling, only you and I What a moment to share, it's wonderful, wonderful Oh, so wonderful my love This world is full of wondrous things it's true But they wouldn't have much meaning without you Some quiet evenings I sit by your side And we're lost in a world of our own I feel the glow of your unspoken love I'm aware of the treasures that I own And I say to myself, it's wonderful, wonderful Oh, so wonderful my love!
