I've Not Fallen Yet

Hello, Dear Ones.
Before I get to my post today I have a couple of little things.
First of all, thank you all who went over to visit my new blog friend Sue at Sprucelake Cottate.
You are all such sweeties and always pull through.
Thank you! :)

Secondly, did you notice my header?
It's much prettier and Fallier isn't it?
 Wish I could tell you I'm so wonderful and made this myself but I can't tell a lie.
I didn't do it.
My sweet friend Sonny at 155 Dream Lane made it for me!
Isn't it beautiful?
As much fun as it was playing at making my header at,
I'm going to keep this up until we start Christmasing!!
Besides, this one is soooooooooooooo pretty and I just love pretty!
Thank you, Dear Sonny.
If you're not familiar with her blog ~ pop on over ~ you'll love it!

Okie Dokie...
 I do see so many of you are Falling all over your blogs.
I really haven't starting Falling around my house yet.

You may remember these darling dishes I found a few weeks ago ~
Apple Valley by Pfaltzcraft.
$12 for a service for 8 plus a platter and veggie bowl.

I just couldn't bring out my Fallen looking dishes yet 
without setting up one tablescape with these little cuties.
I didn't get a good snap of my napkins but I made eight reversible ones.
Now this is because of my friend Lynne at Lynne's Gifts From the Heart. 
She is so talented and has been making these wonderful reversible napkins ~
so I copied her! :)
You can see the little print here and the reverse side is a creamy print. 
I love this idea!

I popped down some of my very olden pink depression glasses.

In honor of the Apple Valley dishes, 
I'm using some little apples instead of eggs in these little eggs cups.
I found the little egg cups at Cracker Barrel a few years back and they are reversible too.
There are little rabbits on the other side and little rabbits are peeping out all over on these dishes.

I took this floral arrangement I made a while back in this pretty milk glass basket
and poked in a few little apples!
I'm pretty clever, huh? :)
You know I'm teasing.

See? Ain't this cute?

I poked down some apple salt and peppers.

Oh my!
This little bunny is waiting for me to turn my back so she can take a bite out of those apples.

Well, every time I turn around, more bunnies are popping up.
These two are so in love.
Especially since the bunny on the left lost her ear and it was miraculously restored.
Now she can hear her honey bunny say, "I love you!"
Melts my heart!

Uh oh!
Two more bunnies.
I do believe the little one on the right has apple stuffed in those little cheeks.
Now I think I'll go buy some apples and make Mr. Precious an apple pie!

Pin It

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I'll Be With You in Apple Blossom Time

I`ll be with you in apple blossom time.
I`ll be with you to change your name to mine.
One day in May, I`ll come and say
Happy surprise that the sunshines on today.
What a wonderful wedding there will be.
What a wonderful day for you and me.
Church bell will chime,
You will be mine,
In apple blossom time.

I`ll be with you

In Apple blossom time
(Then what will you do?)
Then, I`ll be with you to change your name to mine.
(When will that be?)
One day maybe in May,
(Then what will you do?)
I`ll come and say to you dear
Happy surprise that the sunshines on today.
Then what a wonderful wedding there will be
What a very, very wonderful day for you and me dear.
Church bell will chime,
You will be mine.
in apple,
in apple blossom time.

  33. Hello Maám Sheila,

    Wow! Those new dishes to die for. They are adorable.

    Yes, I am with you. I am NOT into Fallen, either. We don't even have summer, yet? OMG... but I guess I can fell that Fall is not that far, what you think, Maám Sheila?

    Have a nice pre-week end.

    Hugs from a chilly Stockholm,

  34. Love that pretty header! :) And I haven't started decorating for Fall yet either! I LOVE Fall, but it's just too hot and humid to get in the mood. (Still upper 90's here!) I have to be inspired that way! ha! I did make two pumpkins, but they didn't quite light the fire either! LOL! ...anyhow, I love your tablescape! The centerpiece is so pretty!

  35. I love your song, before I saw the title, I was thinking you might use the song "Don't sit Under the Apple Tree". :)
    You are very talented and you have a wonderful sense of humour, I always enjoy your pretty blog. And I LOVE that header. I've got to get a new one made.
    Have a delightful weekend.
    Hugs, Cindy

  36. Shelia,
    Your header is stunning, indeed!!! You have such a beautiful blog, Miss Shelia!!! I adore your apples on the tablescape with your lovely new dishes! Apples are Harvest...Harvest is Fall...your tablescape is an introduction to Fall. Now about that Apple Pie...that one has to be my favorite Fall pie!!! I'll be right over! Ha!

  37. That is so'n the apple theme.

  38. I am loving this table, Shelia. Very pretty and the bunnies are so cute!

  39. Your table is gorgeous Shelia. I too am not ready for Fall. Living in the deep south, we have balmy weather almost year round, and although the month says September, it still looks and feels like July. Have a wonderful weekend.
