Changing Things Around


Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, after putting away all of the Christmasing I wanted to start with a clean slate so I cut back on my vignettes in the kitchen.

 Just a little tray of cuties.
 Got a new man for Christmas! Don't you love my Jadite Rooster! He's so handsome and I love him. Don't tell Mr. Precious! ;)
 This is the time for lemons to become ripe so I've been enjoying fresh lemons.
I've always thought fresh lemons were a nice Christmas present from God to me! :)

 Some of the lemons have those little black specks. Maybe they are from birds pecking on them? I just don't know. Anyway, lovely lemons in my lovely vintage Pyrex.
 Then I simplified the Baker's Rack.
 This may be a little too simple for me. I love color so I don't know how long I can stay with the white. But it's just January.
 Then to my little hutch in the breakfast room. 
I'm thinking the top of the hutch is too heavy with stuff.
I love my stuff.

Again, this is simple for me - my girls with one green Rooster.
I'll see how long I can hold my resolve. I have to admit, it does feel nice to decorate a little more simply. My 'simply' may be too much for some.
This year has started off with a bang! We've been going through the house and tossing out the junk, decluttering and rethinking what we really want to keep.
Aww...it does feel good to know that behind those doors in the cabinet - it's neat and orderly.
Wonder how long it will stay that way?

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

You Make Me Feel Brand New
My love, I'll never find the words, my love
To tell you how I feel, my love
Mere words, could not explain

Precious love, you held my life within your hands
Created everything I am
Taught me how to live again

Only you came when I needed a friend
Believed in me through thick and thin
This song is for you
Filled with graditude and love

God bless you
You make me feel brand new
For God bless me with you
You make me feel brand new
I sing this song 'cause you
Make me feel brand new

My love, when ever I was insecure
You built me up and made me sure
You gave, my pride, back to me

Precious friend, with you I'll always have a friend
You're someone who I can depend
To walk a path that sometimes bends

Without you, life has no meaning or rhyme
Like notes to a song out of time
How can I repay
You for havin' faith in me

God bless you
You made me feel brand new
For God bless me with you
You made me feel brand new
I sing this song for you
