Sharing Sundays!

No, I haven't forgotten about Sharing Sundays! :)

What is that expression, "If you want something done, ask a busy woman."
I just might be that woman. ;)

If you had forgotten what Sharing Sundays is, it is when I share with you what is in my private collection of miniatures and I share where or who I got them from.
My attempt at trying to catalog my minis. :)

I apologize for the not so hot photo, not really much time for playing and at least I did get in this little bit. I'm beginning to think my pictures all look the same, I just keep tending to gravitate to my favorite items. :)

Photo credits below.

Okay, lots to share with you, today! :)

Thought I would share with you some of my wall art, especially since I've been adding a lot to that collection as of late.

A Monet replica from LittleTimeWasters.

I love Monet! 

It's a nice large painting that will be wonderful above the couch or above a fireplace.

This was one of my first purchases from etsy.
Originally her shop was called SandBoxArt, but now she goes by the name DollhouseLittles.
You know how partial I am to pink. :)

It's kind of become a joke anymore, when ever someone lists something that is pink they are always sure to let me know. :)

These last three items come from LyssasBudgetMinis.
Lyssa and I did a trade a while back and she painted both of these special for me and added in this cute little crate.

The crate is doing a great job of storing the artwork, don't you think? :)
These all have been sitting on my desk, since... since... well, you can barely see the desk given the piles of paperwork on it and around it. Let's just say that several months have passed. ;)

Come to be that just recently, Lyssa had a giveaway on her blog and I was a winner.
I think it's only like the second time I have ever won any thing, so that was nice. 
Very nice indeed, thanks Lyssa! :)

What else to share with you?


Well, Caterina is holding another holiday swap, if you have never participated before, give it a try. She does a great job of running the swap- it is a lot of work to run and it is also so much fun, like Christmas morning! You can find her blog here.
I've participated in a couple of her swaps in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Jazzi Minis is doing something really fun, perhaps you will want to join in on this. I know I am signed up. :)
Jazzi is sending the mini version of herself around the world and it will be documented by all of the bloggers that are participating. Doesn't that just sound like such fun? Kinda like the "Traveling Gnome."

I've been trying to catch up with as many of you and your blogs as I possible can. Life has got to slow down at some point, doesn't it?
LOL! We shall see, we shall see.
Here's to hoping that your week is off to a good start. :)

    besitos ascension

    1. Gracias, la Ascensión. Tengo el sofá de la tienda del museo Art Deco en Miami Beach. Mi hija se dirige hacia allí pronto y le dije quiero más minis de allí. :)

  5. Good to read your post again Dale and I have seen you popping up in blogland. Looks like you are catching up eh? :):)

    Lovely minis !

    1. Thanks, Sans! :) I am trying my best, it seems if I am doing one thing, another is left to go asunder, oh, well! ;)

  6. Now that is an art collection.
    You really have some beautiful pieces!

    1. Thanks Giac and I have more to come. Just like in my real house, I have a strong desire to wall paper the walls with art work. :)

  7. :D Heeeeeeeeeee. Featured me. Yea. :D. I am signed up for Jazzi's fun trip, too. And I just might sign up for the swap.. Havne't done one since... yours!

    I should be sending your prize soon. ♥

    1. Lyssa, you have no idea how long they have been sitting on my desk waiting!

      Jazzi's trip sounds very exciting!

      I am so looking forward to it. :)

  8. Getting behind in blog land is an easy thing to do! I can totally relate there! LOL!
    I think the artwork is fantastic.

    1. Thank you, Caroline! Boy is it ever! You can't do everything all at once, as much as I try to, there simply are not enough hours in the day. :)

  9. Despite the fact that my minis collection is way too messy to be ever organized, I love your idea of Sharing Sundays. Thanks for showing us these little treasures! :)
    Big hugs from Venice,


    1. Thank you, Mijbil. That is the very reason I am doing this. I am tired of having them all in their packages, I often forget what I have bought. :)

  10. ¡Que maravilla de colección! Gracias por enseñarnos estos tesoros...un beso

  11. Maria Blanca, Muchas gracias, muy apreciado! :)


I love to hear what you have to say! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. :)
