Junie's Place: Life is just a......

Life is just a......

Visiting Pea's blog today I saw she had bought a nice bowl of cherries yesterday!


...funny how this blogging thing works, isn't it? You read something or see a picture on someone's blog and it sends your mind on a trip of it's own...thoughts pop up that were triggered by another's post...

OK - Pea's bowl of cherries brought to my mind immediately the old saying, 'Life is just a bowl of cherries!'

...but then I remembered ...

This is a little doll my daughter Tina gave me. It's by Madame Alexander ~Mary Engelbreit's ,

'Life is Just a Chair of Bowlies!'

Very interesting artist - Mary Engelbreit!

More of my dolls and collectibles can be found HERE!

I saw the cherries at Pea's...I bet she makes a pie or crisp with em...
I know I do get inspired by others during blog visitation...and like you I try to give credit where credit is due.
I truly thought you might have gone out and purchase some of your own when I first started reading...but you included one of your collectibles...which btw...
That is a cute saying!
I wonder how many will be inspired?

:) and here am I - looking up all the 'Life is....' sayings! Started out to look for 'Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries' lyrics-or-quotes...(Didn't know for sure if it was a song- but , of course, it was!)

LOL! I have fun with this computer stuff, don't you!!!

I just love Mary Engelbreit. My daugter, Julie, had that very picture...."Life is just a Chair of Bowlies" framed for Bella's room. It's great because Bella's last name is Bowley.

Hi Joy,

That's amazing! :) "Someone" should get Bella that little doll!

This little picture card came with the doll. The doll is 8 inches tall.

The only reason I'm here is I thought I heard someone say cherry pie.

She has the bowl of cherries. I just have a 'Chair of Bowlies!'

Good morning dear Junie:-) I'm trying to get caught up with everyone today!! Glad my bowl of cherries inspired you to show us your little doll, it's just adorable!!! I've always loved Mary Engelbreit's art and throughout the years have bought many of her calendars, stationery, stickers, etc. I hadn't realized that she had dolls available too...how wonderful!! Have a terrific day my friend:-) xoxo

I've always liked Mary Engelbreit's work. Her stuff is what I would call "whimsical country."

That doll of yours is so cute.

My MIL and SIL are visiting until Saturday. I've tried to catch a few moments here and there to visit blog buddies. I hope your week has been a goodie!

I will post something new on Sunday. :-)

Hi Rachel,
