TABLESCAPE THURSDAY AND OTHER FUN STUFF


"Hi, my name is Matilda. I use to live in Georgia with Sue at
Rue Mouffetard, but she decided I should move west and live with another old bird named Sally. I was in this hot box forever, and you would have thought Sue could have at least packed me with real Georgia peanuts and not these faux ones! They stick to everything."



"I've been checking this new place out, and I think I will like it here. Maybe I should live in the bathroom and be a Bathroom Diva - what do you think, Sheila?"


"Or, there is the computer room where all of this blogging stuff goes on. Looky see, there is Maude, my sister, with all of the other ladies at Sue's house."


"On occasion, I could become the next Samantha Brown and travel the world. These folks have an honest-to-goodness chicken traveling cage."

"How about outside? I could be a real 'Farm Chick' among the corn and tomatoes. Yum!"


"This tablescaping gig looks pretty fun."



"I wonder what's for dinner?" " FRIED CHICKEN???!!!!!!"


"Maybe, if I hide back here no one will see me."


"If I survive this fried chicken crisis, I really do think I will enjoy being a tablescaper. Please go by Susan's of Between Naps on the Porch to check out the other tables. Maybe, they are having something better to eat."


"Oh yes, Sally says to tell Sue thank you, and that she is the best blogger that sends the best presents!!"

Oh, Sally, LOL! This is delightful! I love your chicken, and I love your tablescape. If both are missing, there will be magpie clawprints in the dirt outside! ;-) Great TT post! Hope yours is happy...
