Parties and To Redo or Not To Redo. That Is the Question :)


Hello, Dear Ones. 
Hope you're all having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and my sincere thanks to all who have served in our nation's military - past and present.

Last week I didn't attend any parties. 
Can you believe it?
I love all of our parties in Blogland but I feel I need to hang back for a while.
There are so many many parties now and of course I want to come to them all.
I think I've let my partying get in the way of why I started blogging in the first place.
I've read some posts from other blog friends who feel the same way.
Please know I love all of you party hostesses and I'll still be popping in to visit and soaking up the inspiration but just not joining any parties for a while.


Well, enough of that!

To redo or not to redo?
That's an easy question.

 It was time to do a redo on my breakfast room hutch.

 Yard birds hopped up on the top of my hutch to keep watch.
I poked some greens in my little metal Rooster container.
Done! 

 See this plate? 
I was introduced to a new little thrift shop 
and was told there were some Rooster dishes there calling my name. 
Yep, they were and I brought them home.
Don't you just love the pattern?

The dishes are made by Knowles.
Don't know nuttin' about Knowles but I do knows I loves these cute retro Rooster dishes.

 1 Platter
9 Dinner Plates
7 Salads Plates
5 Dessert Plates 
for
$10.00

 Was that a good deal? 
I don't know, but I think so and besides...I love them! :)


 Now if you know me, you know I love my yard birds
 and they've just hopped all over, above and in my hutch!


I grabbed my little wooded tray, poked down some greens, a handmade tea towel, childhood Roosters Salt and Pepper shakers, and olden rolling pin and a fairly new white Rooster! :)


Now my hutch has been redone for a little while anyway.
Redoing is always fun! :)

Be a sweetie,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Time to Change

Sha na na na, na na na na na, sha na na na na
Sha na na na, na na na na na, sha na na na na

Autumn turns to winter,
And winter turns to spring.
It doesn't go just for seasons you know,
It goes for everything.

The same is true for voices,
When boys begin to grow.
You gotta take a lesson from Mother Nature,
And if you do you'll know.

When it's time to change, then its time to change
Don't fight the tide, come along for the ride, don't you see
When it's time to change, you've got to rearrange
who you are into what you're gonna be.
Sha na na na, na na na na na, sha na na na na
Sha na na na, na na na na na, sha na na na na

Day by day, it's hard to see the changes you've been through
A little bit of living, a little bit of growing all adds up to you
Every boy's a man inside, a girl's a woman too
And if you wanna reach your destiny, here's what you've got to do

Autumn turns to winter,
And winter turns to spring.
It doesn't go just for seasons you know,
It goes for everything.

The same is true for voices,
When boys begin to grow.
You gotta take a lesson from Mother Nature,
And if you do you'll know.
