Just A Piddlin'

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I'm not doing too much at the moment. No big projects. Not even been using a can of spray paint! I guess I'm kinda resting. So I thought I'd show you a little bit of my spiffing in the dining room.

 You've all seen my olden buffet before. She's scratched and a bit battered but do I care? No, no Nannette. Not in the least. She has stories to tell but she's not talking! Shoot! :) That's a very olden mirror too and it's really not dirty, you're seeing the spots where the mirroring is fading. I kinda love that!

 Now I put together this floral arrangement more years ago than I would want you to know. I continually think I'll take it apart. But some how I just never do. I love the artichoke and the persimmons. So here it sits again and will probably sit here again in the future!  I can be kinda boring like that you know.

Oh, I almost forgot! Mr. Precious gave me these candle sticks for Christmas. They're very simple but can be used in so many upcoming vignettes. I love them too! Can you love very simple but pretty candlesticks? Well, you bet your dripping wax you can! :) Clever, aren't I? :)

You've seen this too...an olden hand painted tea service given to me by my mother so many years ago. I do love it! Look at the dogwood blossoms. Now you may ask, can you really love an olden hand painted teas service? Well, you bet your sugar cubes you can! :)

Across the room from my olden buffet is my Little Richard. I love him too! He's holding a tea service too! This is a little sweet set my mother gave me also. She loves me you know! :)

 A little closeup of my little pretties.

 I could offer you a cup of tea but these little cups are so little you'd take two sips and the tea would be gone!

These olden candlesticks were given to me by my aunt. She's in heaven now and I know she'd be so proud that I still use them from time to time. 

Well, like I said, I'm just a piddlin' today. Not up to much. Don't have words of wisdom to leave with you ( I don't think I ever do!). Don't have a wow your tiny socks off project or even a tasty morsel to show you...just  me a piddlin' in the dining room.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~ I heard President Obama sing a bit of this song and I can't get it out of my head. I do love this song...enjoy

Let's Stay Together

I'm, I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is alright with me
'Cause you make me feel, so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Me sayin' since, baby, since we've been together
Ooo, loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me, be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue
Ooo baby

Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Oooo oooo ooo ooo, yeah
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why somebody, why people break up
Oh, and turn around and make up
I just can't seeeeeeeee
You'd never do that to me
(Would you baby)
'Cause being around you is all I see
It's why I want us to

Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad

Let's, let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether
