Got My Ride and My Tree

Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, I was popping in on a few blogs this morning and went to Jennifer Rizzo's blog and she had bought a little Harley Davidson truck from Hobby Lobby and painted it red and poked a little bottle brush tree in it.

Well, I coveted that cute little red truck all day long. 
I have been on the lookout for a little red truck to decorate with but no luck in finding one.

 I could stand it NO MORE!! And around 3:30pm I went to Hobby Lobby.
I was looking for a Harley Davidson display...couldn't find it.
I was about to burst out into tears and then I saw it.
 A little red truck! Completely perfect! Only one and it was mine!
It was cute and olden looking and did I tell you it was red?
It was $29.99 but I had my 40% off coupon so it only cost me $17!
Did I tell you it was already perfect and red?? :)
I poked a bottle brush tree in it's bed and I was off to town!
Well, Christmas decorating anyway.

Thank you Jennifer for making my day!
Did I tell you the little truck was perfect and painted red? :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in ev'ry store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots
Is the wish of Barney and Ben;
Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere you go;
There's a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well,
The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.
~ sung by Johnny Mathis

  5. I LOVE IT Shelia!!'s the perfect shade of red!
    Happy Thanksgiving my sweet friend!

  6. Oh Shelia, I'm enjoying catching up on all of your recent posts. I've been rather slack lately!

    I adore this posts song - ain't it true?!

    and yessiree, that is the perfect find - perfectly red and perfectly olden! Well done!

  7. I have been looking for a red truck for a couple of years now and I may just have to visit Hobby Lobby also! It is so cute!
    Hugs, Linda

  8. Thou Shalt Not Covet Thy Fellow Blogger's Harley Davidson Truck

    ~ God

  9. Yay! Glad you got that little hug from God! ♥

  10. Boy did you score on that truck!!! looks fantastic!…I wish I saved my son's old trucks…saved many of his toys but not the trucks…
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  11. So cute. Glad you found a little truck of your own :)

  12. Totally cute! I need to look at HL here. My sister would love one of these.

  13. Very cute Sheila! I carried a small red truck ornament around Target the other day, planned to do the same thing but ended up putting it back at the last minute... Might rethink that! Happy Thanksgiving-enjoy:@)

  14. It is perfect Sheila, I have a blue one done in the same way on my cupboard on the dining room. So cute!

  15. That truck is awesome! but honestly, Shelia, we kept waiting for you to tell us what color it is - maybe in tomorrow's post :) haha, you're so funny, and I love that red truck!!!

  16. That is the sweetest - I've seen those little trucks many times on Pinterest and love it every time, I need one too!!

  17. Your little red truck is perfectly adorable!!! I love it. I have an old wooden one that I will show one day. It doesn't have a tree in the bed, it is filled with peppermint sticks. And that makes it almost as cute as the tree.
    Hugs, Cindy

  18. How cute, Shelia! SO glad you found exactly what you were looking for!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  19. I wish I had a real truck like that to use when I fetch my tree!

  20. Hi lovely lady.
    Your red truck is so sweet and I am happy you found one.! I am also hoping you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family.

  21. Love it to the max! Glad you found just what you were looking for!

  22. Shelia,
    It is a PERFECT little red truck, indeed!!!
    I'm sure "Mr. Precious" is enjoying it (almost) as much as you!!!
    Have a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving, dear friend!!!
    P.S. Sorry I've been MIA, "Mr. Ed" has had a terrible sinus cold and I've been Nurse Pat all week!!!

  23. Pefect - I love it! Makes me want to head to our craft store and see if they have one!!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  24. Oh I just love your little red truck with the tree in the back! That is fun, Shelia. I wish you and yours a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving this week. Hugs. Pamela

  25. So, so cute! Love it, and you got a great deal with your coupon!!

  26. Is the truck red and is it perfect? Is it olden, too?

  27. The bed of that truck looks like a perfect spot for a Tilda too! Happy Thanksgiving sweetie. xo

  28. So glad you found you little red truck! Happy Thanksgiving!

  29. Oh, Shelia. I love the little red truck, almost as much as I love my little white one. There is something about a little old truck at Christmas. Just the same to me as a pretty, shabby chair with a plant on it..Happy Thanksgiving..Judy

  30. I love your little red truck. It reminds me of an old truck my grandpa used to drive, except his was green. Very cute display!

  31. Good morning Shelia, Thank you for BIG smile this morning. I too love your little red truck and your tree. Most of all I love your enthusiasm and delightful personality.
    Wishing you a sweet Thanksgiving with your hubby. No cooking would make me happy!!!
    Love, Jeanne

  32. Oh my gosh! It's PERFECTLY perfect! Just for YOU Shelia!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  33. This is wonderful Sheila! Happy for you, can't wait to see all your Christmas decorations all done! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  34. How lucky you are Sheila - and to think - it was already red. What fun!!! I am looking forward to seeing your Christmas decorating. I have been wondering why I am in such a happy Christmas mood. I think I know the answer. I am so happy because of all of the beautiful Christmas decor I see out there in blog land. Before I forget - I had been planning to use the lyrics to " It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" for my post Friday. Please don't think I am being rude and copying from you. I do believe in being inspired by other blogs, but not blatant copying.

    You will see the theme of my blogs for what I am doing from Friday through to Christmas (if I have enough energy that is to carry it out that is).

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

  35. Your lil red truck is adorable - just like YOU!

    A truly blessed and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!


  36. How sweet is that little red truck??!! I LOVE it, Shelia. I also checked out your Tilda doll and the darling chairs. Your talent is simply amazing. Thank you for the inspiration and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. xxoo

  37. I LOVE it! I saw a yellow truck in a quaint, little shop a year ago - and I've been 'kicking' myself that I didn't buy it! I wanted it so much but thought I would find one a bit less expensive. I recently saw some pink trucks with bottle brush trees in them - and I started longing for a yellow truck all over again! We don't have Hobby Lobby here. Maybe I can find one somewhere else!


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
