A Little Living Room Change

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, you know how it is after you take down all of your Christmasing ~ your rooms look bare. I thought I do a little switch-a-roo in my living room. Now first of all I'm going to tell you it's been pretty gloomy looking outside and my living room doesn't get much light anyway, so I've tried to do my best to lighten up my snaps.
 So you see anything that looks different?
 Well, my six legged table (as my little mother always called it) is still in the front window with a new vignette on it. But there's more...
I decided to move my two winged back chairs to sit on either side of the table. They were on either side of The Finn and have been sitting there ever since we've lived here. I'm liking this look. The true color of my chairs doesn't really look this reddish in person.
I'll leave you with one more little snap as it's beginning to get a little darker outside. Think I'll curl up in one of my chairs with a Diet Dr. Pepper and a good book! ;)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Anything Goes

Times have changed
And we've often rewound the clock
Since the Puritans got a shock
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
If today
Any shock they should try to stem
'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
Plymouth Rock would land on them.
In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking.
But now, God knows,
Anything goes.
Good authors too who once knew better words
Now only use four-letter words
Writing prose.
Anything goes.
If driving fast cars you like,
If low bars you like,
If old hymns you like,
If bare limbs you like,
If Mae West you like,
Or me undressed you like,
Why, nobody will oppose.
When ev'ry night the set that's smart is in-
Truding in nudist parties in
Studios.
Anything goes.
When Missus Ned McLean (God bless her)
Can get Russian reds to "yes" her,
Then I suppose
Anything goes.
When Rockefeller still can hoard en-
Ough money to let Max Gordon
Produce his shows,
Anything goes.
The world has gone mad today
And good's bad today,
And black's white today,
And day's night today,
And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once had several chateaux.
When folks who still can ride in jitneys
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitneys
Lack baby clo'es,
Anything goes.
If Sam Goldwyn can with great conviction
Instruct Anna Sten in diction,
Then Anna shows
Anything goes.
When you hear that Lady Mendl standing up
Now turns a handspring landing up-
On her toes,
Anything goes.
Just think of those shocks you've got
And those knocks you've got
And those blues you've got
From that news you've got
And those pains you've got
(If any brains you've got)
From those little radios.
So Missus R., with all her trimmin's,
Can broadcast a bed from Simmons
'Cause Franklin knows
Anything goes.
