My Kitchen Countertops Are Featured


Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm so excited to tell you today that I was contacted by Laurel Clarke from Oldcastle Surfaces, Inc. asking if she could show snaps of my kitchen granite countertops on their website


Of course I said yes!
The site has lovely photos of different surfaces.

She sent me some questions to answer about my countertops and I did my best to oblige.
It's really the color of the granite she wanted to show. But I was so honored to do this and
I hope you'll pop over and check it out. I looked at some previous entries and see that I'm among good company ~ many blog friends! 
Here's the link and I hope you'll leave a comment.
Thanks again, Laurel!

Since we're in the kitchen I'll show you a little Christmasing!

 Just a wee little ornament for the kitchen.
 You know me ~ I've gotta have a Rooster around!
 I am so blessed to have such wonderful blog friends. Do you see this darling mug rug? It was given to me by the most talented Mary who blogs at Ms. Redo. Isn't it adorable with all of the Christmas fabrics and even a little red star!
 My Frosty the Snowman mug was just perfect to sit on it filled with wooden Santies.
 Christmas is a time to pull out the mixer and bake some cookies.
I have my little helpers and we're ready to go!
 Here's another corner all Christmased up.
 I just love my olden scale and can't seem to move her from my kitchen so she got Christmased too!
See the little utensil ornies in the olden measuring cup? Aren't they cute?!
Then my Jadite bowl! I love Jadite and want some more! I love my things, can you tell?
It's filled with oldies too.
I've gone a little easy in my decorating this year but can't leave the kitchen out since I spend a lot of time in here.


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)


I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Christmas Cookies

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now, Christmas cookies are a special treat
The more she bakes the more I eat
And sometimes I can't get myself to stop
Sometimes she'll wait till I'm asleep
She'll take the ones I didn't eat
And put those little sprinkly things on top

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now those sprinkly things just makes things worse
'Cause it makes them taste better than they did at first
And they're absolutely impossible to resist
Some disappear to who knows where
But I make sure I get my share
And those kids just stand there waiting for the ones I miss

Sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
Sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
She gets mad that they're all gone
Before she gets the icing put on
Sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now there's a benefit to all of this
That you might have overlooked or missed
So now let me tell you the best part of it all
Every time she sticks another batch in the oven
There's 15 minutes for some kissin' and'a huggin'
That's why I eat Christmas cookies all year long

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
