Show and Tell Already??

I don't know where the week went, but here we are at Show and Tell Friday. I always like to participate in this fun at No Place Like Home. This week I am posting especially for my blogging friend Charlotte at At Home in Scottsdale. Charlotte always posts such beautiful dolls that she has made. These are a couple of my little dolls that I especially like. These were from McDonalds Happy Meals several years back. I bought Minnie, but Mickey was no where to be found. I finally found him on Ebay. I always had them at my desk at work to remind me of the little girl in me!
Last week Charlotte showed an figurine that I believe is from the artist Betsy Pease Guttman. I have these little plates that I just think are so cute. I placed them on a doilie so you can see they are small.

This little box was a gift to my daughter when she was little. It is the size of a matchbox. Inside was
A Puzzle. I saved this from one of her room cleaning days. I always thought it was just too cute.
So you can see the size.
I guess my show and tell today is small items that I think are so cute. I have always wished I had a dollhouse, I guess these satisfy some of that desire. I have many other small items. Most are put away, but I may just have to bring them out someday and enjoy sharing them with you.
I am anxious to see all the lovely show and tell items this week.

How sweet you thought of me. The little dolls are darling. The plates and tiny puzzle are nice too. I passed an award on to you. It is on my doll blog.

Carrie said...

All your mini items are so sweet.

Carla said...

Yes, please did out and share your small things! I have decided I DESERVE a dollhouse, and hopefully soon will be able to work on the kit I bought at Goodwill. I want it for my grands to play with. I love small things, and yours are sweet! I love the artwork of Betsy Pease Guttman. She captured such softness. Thank you for sharing your little treasures!

I have got to show the Dolls in Mickey and Minnie clothes to Ed. He will love them! Love the other precious goodies as well. That puzzle is so tiny!

Dawn said...

Thanks for stopping by today - I love having S&T visitors. And you're right about how fast the weeks roll around to Friday again! Such cute little things you showed today - I bought miniature shelves for both kids when they were young, but I don't know what happened to everything that was on them! Sad.

I'm also with you on the feelings that come with autumn - but when I can't sleep, I definitely don't get in the mood to clean! Too funny.

Hi again!

I did see your profile and congrats on being a survivor! ChemoAngels is a non profit organization made up of all volunteers that matches Angels with patients on cancer. The Angels don't live near the patients but are given a small set of answers to questions about the patient's likes and hobbies etc. The Angel sends a card or small gift and words of encouragement once a week while the patient is on treatment. is the web address. I started as an Angel and now I also help with the Administrative work keeping track of Angels and patients - that type of thing. You can read more at the website!

What cute mini's! I bet that Mickey cost a lot more than the Minnie in the Happy Meal!

I love Bessie Guttman (sp?) paintings. The tiny box and puzzle are so cute.

You have a great blog!! Thanks for stopping by mine and writing what you thought was going on in my picture. I think that the older lady and the younger lady are the same person..they have on the same house coat if you noticed. i believe the older lady still thinks of herself as young in her heart..she is pointing to the heart of the older lady. I believe the older lady is about to pass on...Thanks again for stopping by..i love your blog it is nice and cheery!! Sandy

Juri said...

Hi! I saw that you left a comment on my sister's blog about chemo....what a wonderfully honest statement! I was forced into the chemo club, too, and I loved how you worded your encouragement to my sis! Of course, I had to rush to your blog and see who you were...and was so glad I did...what a great blog!!! I will be back, for sure!

Hi Ceekay,
So nice to see you and thank you for your visit. Yes, I have been busy trying to get back in the swing of things since vacation.

I love your show and tell. The puzzle is just too sweet. The plates are wonderful. In fact, The plate with the little girl in the corner is called In Disgrace. I did it in a hand crewel for my mother many many years ago. I just love that sweet scene.
You are very blessed to have those darling plates.
Have a great evening and see you again soon.
Blessings, Celestina

Joy said...

I found your key wall picture. It looks great!
I also fell in love with your tall cloche, so when I found one just like it, I HAD to buy it! I just need to find a black plate to put under it like you have.

Sandy Toes said...

Mini items and decor are the best!

No, we do not live by the water but we have a family cottage on the water that is my mom and dads up in Michigan.

I have family that lives in Scotsdale!
Have a Happy Monday!
