Thank Yous and Divas :)

Hello, Dear Ones! I want to thank all of you who came to my Heart of the Home Party! Wow! There were 102 kitchen entries! Isn't that fantastic? Oh, and I've had the best time visiting all of you and if I didn't leave you a comment, please let me know, I'm getting olden and sometimes loose my place! :) I certainly want you all to know how I appreciate your taking the time to spiff, clean and decorate for little ole tiny me!! :)

Oh, the kitchens...each one so individual and filled with love. Needless to say I've had a ball. I do hope you've had the time to go and pay some visits to the Dear Ones of these marvelous kitchens. We just may have to make this an annual event! What do you think? Well...


Attention! Attention!! We are interrupting this regular scheduled post to bring you the latest breaking news in the Land of Blog! Yes! We will always keep you up to date on what is happening!

Now I must tell you the invasions are continuing in Bathrooms across America! I, your Most Marvelous Queen of the Bathroom Divas will never let you down, Most Precious Ones! I am here to do my business ~ my Bathroom business.

I've said it before and I'll say it again ~ there are impostors among us who would like to trick us and ease their way into our most elite club of the Daring Darling Bathroom Snapping Divas. But your Most Fabulous Queen of the Divas will not let you down as I have special Bathroom powers! Now, on with my business...would you please stand aside, Most In The Way Ones, and I'll do my inspection.

What have we here? I do see two Most Gorgeous Ones with the creamiest of complexions, the most gorgeous peepers filled with starlight, gorgeous locks filled with Bathroom highlights (you can't get those highlights from a box, Most I Have No Grays Ones), bodies clad in the most stylish of clothes, the pearliest of whites and a smile to boot to beat the band! The most slender of arms with wrists attached to the daintiest of fingers grasping a camera. Well, one Most Gorgeous One is very sneaky and she is a magician and is hiding her most dainty fingers! :)

There you have it...two more genuine Divas!! Woo Hooness!!

Yes, Yes, Most Excited Ones, we have two new Divas! Now, Most Inquiring Minds Want To Know Ones, who are these lovelies?

This Most Gorgeous Ones looks so familiar, yes yes, this is our very own Kristen from Kristen's Creations.

Taking Care of Business

You get up every morning
From your alarm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
And I'll be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Work out
If it were easy as fishin'
You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar
Chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows
People see you having fun
Just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid
And we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day
And we be...
Taking care of business every day
Taking care of business every way
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine
Taking care of business and working overtime
Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day whoo!
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business

  10. Dear Sheila, I miss so much since I just can't get around to so many blogs anymore, but just wanted to say that your kitchen is SO pretty. I loved looking at all the details.

  11. Hi Sheila, I was gone all day visiting Penny at Lavender Hill. She had a blogging party and we had such a wonderful time. There were about 14 bloggers there and everyone had so much fun meeting each other. I will blog about it on Monday.

    I did enjoy your wonderful kitchen party. I tried to visit everyone too but missed a few. I think it would be fun to do this again. In honor of your bathroom divas maybe we should share our favorite bathroom. HA! just a thought. Congrats to the new divas. such pretty ones. Smile!

    Have a wonderful Sunday.
    Hugs and love,

    PS: I forgot to mention the night I posted my kitchen I was up until 3:00 am. I couldn't sleep either. Actually I was still awake when you wrote your comment to me but I had gone to bed. I bet you were tired the next day. I sure was

  12. I am totally OUT of the loops 'cause I've been gone and not reading blogs for over 10 days.
