Got Milk?

Hello, Dear Ones. Hope you all are having some cooler weather. We are and I'm loving it! High 50s - heavenly.

Now on to the milk...
I'm always changing things up and my tiny little round table in the breakfast room is no exception. I've taken my milk glass container and filled it to the brim with breakable pumpkins that are not edible that were bought from the dollar store a few years ago. I've also tossed in a few wooden acorns. I suppose you could chew on these if you really wanted to. :)

Here's a closer peep! Breakable pumpkins but not edible, wooden acorns which you could chew on, all floating in milk glass! Milk glass does a table good! You know I'm a silly. :)

I've placed two wooden candlesticks on each side of the milk glass and placed two more breakable and not edible pumpkins on each. Did I mention the pumpkins were not edible? :)

Pumpkins on pedestals but not edible. I'm so creative you know with my words! :)

The black and white ribbon was woven in and out of the milk glass way back in the summer. I liked the look and it just stayed. The ribbon is not soggy at all!

So there you have it ~ a tiny little centerpiece on my tiny little round table in my tiny little breakfast room. Milk does a table and breakable but not edible pumpkins good! :) Oh, and wooden acorns you chew on if you really wanted to. :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate, (hold hands up)
The first one said "oh my its getting late," (hands on cheeks)
The second one said "there's a chill in the air," (hug self)
The third one said "but we don't care," (shrug)
The fourth one said "we're ready for some fun," (jump)
The fifth one said "lets run, run, run," (run in place)
So woo went the wind, and out went the lights,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight (sit down).
~sung by my breakable but not edible pumpkins


  1. Silly Shelia!! I have the same pumpkins (mine are from Dollar Tree) that aren't edible either. What shall we do about it? Guess I'll buy a can of pumpkin for my pie next week. I think the family will appreciate that. Have a great weekend. Sally

  2. Shelia,
    Liked your song! I haven't heard this one before. Think your grandbaby will enjoy seeing you do the motions as you sing the song.

    Won't Christmas be a lot of fun this year? What do you suppose she'll do when she sees Santa at the Mall? Picture time.

    The ceramic pumpkins are a hit. I like the ribbon around the milk glass holding the decorative pumpkins. Last year I bought decorative pumpkins from Walgreens. This year I bought some pumpkins from Dollar Tree. Sure do like them!

    May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    God bless,

  3. Your song is so cute, along with the sweet breakable pumpkins and milk glass. I got one of those little pumpkins a couple of years ago, and you're right, they really are breakable...not that either twin admitted fault ;-)

  4. Sheila, Sheila, you are a treat! Love the pumpkins, but oh the milk glass does it ever bring back memories? I bought a whole box of "stuff" at an auction one night, the box was full of milk glass. I didn't love it @ the time - finally got rid of it. :( wish I hadn't after I saw the ribbon running through yours. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! p.s. I sent you an e-mail of you know who in the you know what room! Did you get it?

  5. Beautiful and I love that ribbon on the white tray. Gorgeous.

  6. Hi Shelia, Love the ribbon through the milk glass! I also love the pumpkins on the candle holders. By the way, I took my neighbor to a tea room for her birthday. They had one of those candle holder "thingies" in the fireplace and instead of candles, they set teapots on each one! It was cute as could be!
    Wishing you a special weekend.

  7. Oh, dear..Like Sally, I will have to buy canned pumpkin for my Pumpkin Cake...I have so many pumpkins all around and not a single solitary one is edible.
    Mine aren't nearly as pretty as YOUR glass ones, tho. :)

  8. mmmm...sounds tasty...if you're a termite but it is oh so that milkglass!!!

  9. G'eve sweet Shelia ~ Boy, that milk glass brings back memories. I still love it. Your decor is another 2D4 ...

    Have a beautiful Thanksgiving ~
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  10. My pumpkins have been around since early October and they all the mini ones. Don't think I want to eat any of them. So our pies will be made from canned pumpkin. A lot less trouble. LOL
    Happy Turkey Day! ~ Sarah

  11. Lovely piece of milkglass! I love how you used it! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  12. Shelia, you are so much fun! I enjoyed seeing your pretty centerpiece, and I smiled my way through your post. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving. laurie

  13. Your just adorable. God Bless Trish

  14. the dollar store? those unedible pumpkins are QUITE lovely! i MUST visit the dollar store more often! i have 2 lovely wHiTe unedible pumpkins but i paid $7 each for them (too much conisdering your lovelies were only a dollar!)

    love the milk glass, and that black and white ribbon makes me think of oreo cookies wrapped around that milk glass, just waiting to be dunked! yUmMy YuMmY! just delicious looking!

  15. sweet, tiny lady!! You always make me smile! Would you believe..........the squirrels were getting all of my pumpkins on the porch and I replaced one with a BAKING pumpkin from the grocery store...and they won't touch it!! Apparently there are different types and they don't want the real deal. Little monsters. I guess it's a little long in the tooth to have pumpkins displayed but I'm stubborn that way.
    Loved your post, sweet one!


  16. Beeeutiful, Shelia!

    My daughter was asking about you today. She wanted to know who the lady is who always signs, be a sweetie.:-) I told her you are a Texas lady who is a sweetie.:-)

  17. I love the way you put your 'punkins' together! A beautiful arrangement. I have a couple of the Dollar Tree pumpkins and wish I had bought more!

  18. Love the milk glass with the ribbon. I do not want to get rid of my edible pumpkins but Christmas is coming! ♥O

  19. Very pretty setting for your breakfast room table...if only they were edible... :o)

  20. Whenever I see milk glass I think of an aunt of mine. Your table is lovely...and you are so cute with your story!

  21. Sheila, that is such a pretty dish and I love how you displayed it with your pretties. I hope you have a great weekend and Thanksgiving in case I don't get to tell you later.

  22. Oh, Shelia,
    Your silliness is delightful! I always read your posts with a big smile on my face!
    I do love your breakable-but-not-edible pumpkins and your wooden-acorns-that-you-could-chew-on, and your milk glass and threaded ribbon!
    What a sweet vignette!

  23. Oh Shelia -- you are the silliest of sweeties! And we love you for it! Love your pretty centerpiece -- is it edible? Just kidding!

  24. I love those $ store pumpkins; I wish they still had them for sale.

    Once again, you've made a pretty table to sit at or simply gaze upon. You are Special!

    Blessed Thanksgiving, Shelia.

  25. Hi Sheila, I too love the milk glass with the ribbon woven around the edge. Your pumpkins and acorns look very festive. Very welcoming and pretty. I wish I had found the pretty glass pumpkins at the #1 store.

    Wishing you happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
    Warm hugs, Jeanne

  26. Hi Shelia,
    What a sweet and healthy full of fun and vitamin D!

    Love the milk glass bowl with the added pretty ribbon and of course the non edible pumpkins.


  27. I do so love pumpkins and will hate to see them all put away for another year. Yours are just lovely!
    You do know the words to the song "Smile" don't you? I said you did. :)

  28. Lovely Sheila! Some how I missed out on those pumpkins...DRAT!! You've displayed them perfectly...loving the milk glass :)


  29. Hi Shelia, I like that centerpiece and love the ribbon on the milk glass. The contrast sets everything off in a lovely way. Glad you "got milk". Happy Thanksgiving! Linda
