A New Toy!


Hello, Dear Ones! I'm saying "A New Toy!" like the guy did on The Price Is Right when he'd say "A New Car!" Just wanted you to know what I was thinking!

Well, my new toy started with these...
 my Le Creuset pots! Mr. Precious gave me the dutch oven a few months back and for Christmas he gave me the stock pot and a matching Le Creuset tea pot! As pretty as they are, I just couldn't keep them all on my cooktop! So I said I was on the lookout for a baker's rack.

 Enter Mr. Precious again. I had been to Hobby Lobby and they had their metal furniture on sale. I saw this one, told him about it and he got it for me! See why I call him Mr. Precious? :) kiss kiss...

 It wasn't very expensive, it's not too big, but plenty of room for my pots and for me to play with! I just love to play!! :)

 So I'll show you how I've played with it! Oh, this is so much fun! Look at the top! Had to poke my favorite Rooster up here.

A shelf for my pots and a few little extras.

 A great shelf to poke on some of my dishes.

 I ran to Target and grabbed a couple baskets to poke on the bottom shelf. I knew I'd have to fall on my tiny knees to reach that shelf to dust and I didn't want anything to do with that, so baskets were the answer. I have a set of dishes in the first basket and salt and peppers in the second basket. I've placed matching napkins over the tops to help them stay almost dust free! I'm so clever! :)

Well, you know how it goes! You go into a store in search of something and come out with something else. That's what I did at Tuesday Mornings, looking for baskets. Didn't find any baskets but I did find this tiny little tool box and it was covered with Christmas. Cute as can be but I wanted to use it now ~ so out came the spray paint and the rest was history! Tiny and cute, napkined and Roostered! Right down my tiny alley! ;)

Oh, one more thing. The shelves are black and I could just see dust bunnies hopping all over the place so...I made shelf runners! Yes, I did... burgundy colored on one side and a red toile on the other! 


 If you visit me very often you may have wondered where my barrister bookcases went. Right here they are! They are very olden and we have another set upstairs in Mr. Precious' office.

 I love these bookcases as they house my cookbooks! I love my cookbooks! You may ask, can you love cookbooks? Well, you bet your folding in egg whites you can! :) Here's the top and I see I must make a new  runner for this to match my runners on my new baker's rack!

 Now you can see where my toys are located. Those swinging doors take you into the laundry room thus why you're seeing a wire hanger up there on the hanging rack.

Yep, I've got lots of stuff crammed into this little breakfast room. My little breakfast hutch is on the other wall opposite the table.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my new toy! I just had to leave you with a view of a cute little fuzzy behind belonging to my little Chloe Dawn! :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Shake Your Tailfeather

Well I heard about the fellow you've been dancing with
All over the neighbourhood
So why didn't you ask me baby
Or didn't you think I could?

Well I know that the boogaloo is out of sight
but the shingaling's the thing tonight
But if that was you and me a now baby
I would have shown you how to do it right
Do it right (U-huh)

Twist it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it baby
Hey we gonna loop de loop
Shake it out baby

Bend over let me see ya shake your tailfeather
Bend over let me see ya shake your tailfeather
Come on let me see ya shake your tailfeather

Hey we gonna loop de loop
Shake it out baby
Hey we gonna loop de li

Twist it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it baby
Twist it, shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it baby
