Flippin' in the Dining Room

Hello, Dear Ones!
I've been changing things up and spiffing up the dining room.

Wanna see?


I fiddled with a vignette on the table.

I admit it! I'm lazy.
I took the flowers out of my Currier and Ives casserole and just poked it down in this little fruited tureen. Lazy, lazy, lazy!



I've used my little table runner that I made last spring.

Then I messed with the buffet that you've seen 10 million times.
I love her though and she serves me well.
I never get tired of my dishes on the wall.

I've used some of my Dessert Rose Old Franciscan dishes to prettify the top of my buffet.



Don't you just love cloches? 
Anything looks good under them.

Some of my Dessert Rose is olden and some pieces are newer. 
The sugar, creamer and little salt and peppers are olden.

Now it's Little Richards time.

This is a pretty cake saver my mother gave me for Christmas.
I think the cut work all over it is so lovely.
If you're wondering, I've poked some pears underneath the top.

Here's a cute little olden Fostoria Colony footed dish.
Poked on a pear! 
I love pears. Juicy ones!

Here is a little sugar and creamer. 
More olden Fostoria Colony.
Just a very simple vignette atop of Little Richard.

Peeping here.

Peeping there.

I know you've seen my High Boy before but have I told you lately how I love this piece.
(kinda stole a few words from Rod Stewarts song, well actually it came from Van Morrison first).
I keep some tablecloths and lace doilies and such in these drawers.



Don't think I've shown you the ceiling medallion in here. 
I should do something to it.
Paint it? Any suggestions?

I've fiddled and now I'm done!
Well, for a little while anyway. :)

Pin It


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Have I Told You Lately That I Love You

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness, take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do

For the morning sun and all its glory
Meets the day with hope and comfort too
You fill my life with laughter, somehow you make it better
Ease my troubles, that's what you do

There's a love that's defined
And it's yours and it's mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray to the one, to the one

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness, take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do

There's a love that's defined
And it's yours and it's mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray to the one, to the one

And have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
You fill my heart with gladness, take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do

Take away all my sadness, fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do
Take away all my sadness, fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do
~ sung by Rod Stewart
