Poking Stuff on the Dining Room Table

Hello, Dear Ones! We're covered in snow and more seems to be coming but we're excited about it all. So...I had a little time on my hands and since my dining room table was nekked (that's Texan for naked but since I live in New York now, I guess it's transplanted Texan) I decided to fiddle with it.
 I grabbed my olden glass punch bowl. I didn't have to travel far to get it since it was just on the buffet but I did grab it gingerly. :)
 I grabbed my faux fruit which I love. Can you love faux fruit, you might ask? Well, you bet your apple seeds you can! I started filling up the punch bowl with apples, pears, oranges and all the other little fruits that make your mouth water. I did poke in a few artichokes so they wouldn't feel left out.
 Grapes are cascading down the side and I left a few fallen pieces on the tray. I love that.
 Do you like this? I love this olden punch bowl and underplate and it was given to me by my Aunt Alma and was made by Heisey glass. I have the punch cups too.
 I folded and pleated up both ends of my olden crocheted runner. Now I wish I could tell you I crocheted this but I can't. I found it at a thrift shop a few years ago.
 The sun is shining bright through the windows and smiles down on my little dining table vignette.
 Here you can see this side of my dining room. Now PLEASE ignore that disco ball chandy. One day we'll get another one. Still on the lookout for a rug to go under the table and chairs and then will I be done? Probably not! Are we ever done with decorating our homes? ;)

Do you like my new header? Well, I can't leave well enough alone but thought this one looked more like 'me' than the one I had before! :)

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

You Needed Me


I cried a tear, you wiped it dry
I was confused, you cleared my mind
I sold my soul, you bought it back for me
And held me up and gave me dignity
Somehow you needed me

You gave me strength to stand alone again
To face the world out on my own again
You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me, you needed me

And I can't believe it's you I can't believe it's true
I needed you and you were there
And I'll never leave, why should I leave, I'd be a fool
'Cause I finally found someone who really cares

You held my hand when it was cold
When I was lost, you took me home
You gave me hope when I was at the end
And turned my lies back into truth again
You even called me friend

You gave me strength to stand alone again
To face the world out on my own again
You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me, you needed me
You needed me, you needed me
