I've Fallen in the Dining Room!

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I've done it again and I've Fallen in my dining Room. You know this time of the year I just can't help myself.


Here we go walking in from the entry. My dining table was bought in 1975 and it has special little memories. Sometimes I'd like to get a prettier table and get new chairs but then I think of the time I walked in and my little son was sitting there just scrapping his pencil up and down as fast as he could on the edge of the table! He wasn't trying to do damage - he was just thinking, he said. :) This table still holds the scar! More sweet stories so I'm keeping it. ;)



Well, I've been Falling all over my olden table and put together a little centerpiece.


I've used my recent garage sale find - my silver tray and poked down three little silvery pieces and poked Fall things all around.


Here's a little closer look at all of the Falleness on my tray!

I placed my tray on a table runner where I've folded up the ends. Then I sat a couple of tarnished silver candle holders down just in case I need a little candlelight! :)


Now on the other side of the dining room we find a little more Falleness! I've just Fallen all over my olden server.


Poked down a Fallen looking runner, some cloches (pretend you don't see them because I'll be showing these for Marty's Fallen Cloche party Friday) and lots of leaves and little nuts! Hey, I'm a nut too! :)


On the other side of the dining room you'll find Little Richard. I've Fallen all over him too! You know I can't help myself! :)


You can see my fairly new buffet lamps sitting on top of Little Richard. There's another Fallen colored table runner and my little silverware box sitting here. I've got a silverware box on my olden server too. I'm really enjoying using these boxes as another level to poke stuff on top of. I poked a doily on it and placed little cupcake cloches (shh, please pretend again you're not seeing these) on it and they're filled with pumpkins and all sorts of little pine cones and nuts. Now Little Richard is so Fallen! ;)


Well, there you have it ~ my Fallen dining room.

Uh oh...


Chloe Dawn, what are you doing? This is were she loves to sit and guard our house. She does a wonderful job of it too! I think she's pouting because I've been so busy Falling around in here she thinks I've ignored her.


I'll see if I can make it up to her. Chloe Dawn, Darling, Mommy loves you. Wanna give me a kiss? Pretty please? Well, I guess not! She'll get over it though when we sit down to eat dinner! :)


Oh, before I leave I wanted to let you know I'm having a party next month and would love to invite you to come.


It's all about showing off our kitchens and should be a fun party. You can go HERE to find out more about it and I'll continue to remind you and give more info when the time gets a little closer.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you a little Note Songs~

Scarborough Fair

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt
(On the side of a hill in the deep forest green)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Tracing of sparrow on snowcrested brown)
Without no seams nor needle work
(Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain)
Then she'll be a true love of mine
(Sleeps unaware of the clarion call)

Tell her to find me an acre of land
(On the side of a hill a sprinkling of leaves)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Washes the grave with silvery tears)
Between the salt water and the sea strands
(A soldier cleans and polishes a gun)
Then she'll be a true love of mine

Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather
(War bellows blazing in scarlet battalions)
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
(Generals order their soldiers to kill)
And gather it all in a bunch of heather
(And to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten)
Then she'll be a true love of mine

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine
~ sung by Simon and Garfunkel
