Corner Houses

Hello Dear Ones!
I hope you all had a marvelous Easter Sunday with your family and friends.
We had a wonderful day of celebration and eating! :)

Speaking of eating, seems I always wind up in the kitchen. 
I've washed and put away all the dirty dishes and decided I'd
 play in my corners again and wanted to show you what I've done.
All of this was accomplished while I was eating two cookies!
I'm so talented like that, you know. :)

 Here's my precious little house cookie jar flanked by the salt and peppers in this corner. 
I saw these years ago at Marshalls and just fell head over heels (that's really hard to do, you know) and bought all the pieces I could find.

 Then I found out that Susan at Between Naps on the Porch had all of the dishes to go with these.
I looked my most gorgeous peepers all over to find some of those darling square plates.
Nada! Nothing! No way! 
They were totally gone. 
I cried a bit but just had to get over the fact I would never had the wonderful sweet squared plates.
: (

 I'm okay now, so I'll continue. Here are the cute little salt and peppers. 
They look wonderful planted on each side of the little house, don't you think?
One corner down and one more to go! :)

Here's the other corner. I just love my kitchen counter corners.
You may ask, can you love kitchen counter corners? 
Well, you bet your stale bread crumbs you can! :)

 Isn't this a wonderful piece! A HUGE house pitcher! 
We could fill this to the rim with peach tea!

 Here's the little guest house creamer but I could be sad again for I do not have the sugar bowl! : (

 See that sweet little tray? I think the salt and peppers are supposed to sit on it, 
but it could be the bottom of the butter dish. 
I DON'T KNOW!
But that's okay because it's Spring and a little bird has built her nest in it.
I see she's already laid some eggs.

Uh oh! Don't get to close. 
By the look on her tiny little face, she's quite edgy!
She's saying, "Don't you touch my eggs!"
So my little corner houses will just have to stay put for a while.

Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Our House In the Middle of Our Street

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our 

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our 

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep
He can't hang around

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our 

Our house it has a crowd
There's always something happening
And it's usually quite loud
Our mum she's so house-proud
Nothing ever slows her down
And a mess is not allowed

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our...

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our...
Something tells you that you've got to get away from it

Father gets up late for work
Mother has to iron his shirt
Then she sends the kids to school
Sees them off with a small kiss
She's the one they're going to miss
In lots of ways

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our...

I remember way back then when everything was true and when
We would have such a very good time such a fine time
Such a happy time
And I remember how we'd play simply waste the day away
Then we'd say nothing would come between us two dreamers

Father wears his Sunday best
Mother's tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Brother's got a date to keep
He can't hang around

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our street

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our ...

Our house, was our castle and our keep
Our house, in the middle of our street

Our house, that was where we used to sleep
Our house, in the middle of our street

Our house, in the middle of our street
