Fall On The Drop Leaf Table

Hello, Dear Ones! First of all I would like to thank you all who commented on the Anna costume I made for little Carter! She wore it proudly. And, I'm feeling so much better this week. Thanks again for your kindness to me!
Okie dokie! I thought I would show you a little vignette I set up on my old Duncan Phyfe drop leaf table. I love this old table and it made it's way into our den.
This is a very old nine day clock (it winds down after about nine days and you have to take a key and wind it back up) that belonged to my great grandfather who gave it to my mother and she gave it to me. It was made during the late 1800s. We had it worked on once and the lady's hands were shaking as she looked at it. She said she'd never seen one this old in this good shape! Made me love it all the more. Anyway, it made the way from Texas To New York. We did let the movers pack this for us. It has the most lovely tick tock.
Here's my little Fallen vignette.
If you visit me very often you know how I love my little Staffordshire dog figurines. Well, some are Staffies, some are fake Staffies and some dog figurines are just cute. This little honey is just cute and he looks pretty Fallen so he got the job!
He's so happy to do his part for Fall. Look at that smile. He got a couple of pun'kins to pose with him.
Don't we just love our cloches? Well I poked some hydrangeas under mine, placed some tiny little pun'kins inside a tiny little birdcage and added one more pun'kin! I'm so clever you know! :)
Oh, I told you what the packers did to this lamp. Broke my heart. Mr. Precious had given this to my little mother many years ago and I was just treasuring it after she passed away. When I opened the box to unpack it, the dodos had placed the base of the lamp in the bottom of a big box and packed all kinds of things on top of it and bent it all up! The glass globe would not fit. Well, the insurance we bought for the move paid to have it fixed, well sort of. It's not perfect and the globe sits a little crooked but at least I can use it.
So there you go ~ a little spot in my den. I am going to hang up some pictures on the blank wall but just haven't done that yet. I  love lots of stuff! I don't show you much of my den, except my mantel because it usually looks like this...
toys, toys and more toys. This is the grandkids room and they play in here when they come over. That's okay, I love it.

Thanks for popping in to see me.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Time Is On My Side

Time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is
Now you all would say, that you wanna be free
But you'll come running back (Like I said you would, baby)
You'll come running back (Like I told ya so many times before)
You'll come running back to me, yeah
Time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is
You're searchin' for good times, but just wait and see.
You'll come running back (I said you would, darlin')
You'll come running back (Don't you reckon my life [Incomprehensible])
You'll come running back to me
Go ahead, baby, go ahead. Go ahead and light up the town.
Baby, do anything your heart desires remember, I'll always be around
I know, I know like I told ya so many times before
You're gonna come back, yeah you're gonna come back, baby [Incomprehensible]
Time is on my side, yes it is
Time is on my side, yes it is
'Cause I got the real love the kind that you need
You'll come running back (I knew you would one day)
You'll come running back (Like I told you before)
You'll come running back to me, yeah
Time, time, time is on my side, yes it is, I said
Time, time, time is on my side, yes it is, I said

Time, time, time is on my side
