Flowers, decorating, and a wonderful RAK

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies! ~ Thank you so much for stopping by today! I do appreciate your visits!
Now I do not have a green thumb. I always say that it is brown! LOL I even have a stitched pillow with a design from Bent Creek that says so. I'll have to show it again soon. Anyway... I am amazed that my rose bush is still alive and kickin'! I was looking at it the other day and noticed that several of the buds are turning two colors. It was a cream colored rose bush for the longest time and now some of them are starting to turn pink! Hopefully you can tell in the picture that there are two different colored roses on this bush. I guess it is trying to show support for Breast Cancer awareness!

Well every now and again I like to change things around in my house. I get a little bored with things sometimes and go on a little decorating jag. Lately I have been attacking my kitchen and small bathroom. I rearranged my shelf in my kitchen and adding a few things. Below is some things I have added. I love the towel from Dan DiPalo and I decided the shelf needed a small bowl of eggs (plaster of Paris ones) . On that shelf I have a milk bottle from a local dairy, Memory Lane. I found a new home for a very old Coca-Cola gobblet that used to belong to my grandpa. I thought with it being glass and having red on it, it would go well. I added a wonderful little fresh eggs sign that I got at Hobby Lobby and also a rooster hook that came from Jo-Ann's. I love the way it turned out!

I received a wonderful RAK in the mail from Myra. I have wanted this chart for quite some time. My mom used to sing this song to me when I was little and I STILL sing it to my 13 year old son sometimes! For those inquiring minds that want to know, YES I started it already! LOL.

So also sent me one of her adorable little birds she makes! Isn't it sweet? I have it on a cabinet nob in my laundry room that hangs over the washer. It cheers me up when I'm back there doing the dreaded laundry task! I picked the basket up at Jo-Ann's.

Well , hopefully I will be back this week with some decorating I have been doing in my Patriotic bathroom. Thank you all so much for all of your wonderful comments! They keep my going and really make my day!
'til next time,
don't be a stranger,


  1. Lovely gifts from Myra - love that little bird! Your shelf looks great, too!

  2. Love your shelf and all your goodies!! Isn't Myra a sweetie!! I love the birds she has done - enjoy yours! I have that dreaded laundry task to do today!!

  3. what a cute bird :) That would cheer me up too especially while doing laundry BLAAHHH LOL

    I have this chart, bought it for the same reason, my mom use to sing this to me at night, even when I was a teenager I use to ask her to sing it to me..

  4. I really like your shelf. I have blue strip pottery bowls and chicken stuff that I display on a bakers rack in my kitchen. Myra's bird is adorable!

  5. My grandmother and I also sang that song. Can't wait to see your finish!

  6. I just love roses! We have a couple bushes that do okay but they came 'with the house' so to speak. I don't have a green thumb at ALL and am still trying, after 7 years, to get my lilac bushes to bloom with any regularity. :(

  7. I love what you did with your shelf. Hobby Lobby has the best signs to hang around. I am glad you are enjoying the little bird and the chart. La-D-Da really struck a chord with a lot of us with that design. :o)

  8. We're different - I'm the type that puts something in a certain place and it stays there.

  9. Those roses are beautiful! I have a bush that always blooms in March right before my bday with bright pink flowers, and it's one of my favorite parts of spring.

  10. What great gifts from Myra! Isn't she the best?!

    Your little shelf looks great, Sharlene--love all the little personal touches you've added to it...

  11. Lovely gifts from Myra! I love your decorating, and the roses are beautiful!


Thank you for your comments. They just make my day! Thanks for your visit today!
