ARE YOU READY for some CUTENESS....?????

HEY, YA'LL...


WHAAAAT....??????
You haven't...??

I am already doing a bit of CHRISTMAS shopping and her  shop is one I've been stalking.....


She sells her originals so fast, they don't stay around long...
but



she has an ETSY SHOP just full of some original art...
lots of awesome prints....

and she does the neatest thing with mounting your choice of prints
on boards.

I am lucky to own ONE of her originals...and hope to get more later.
In the meantime, her PRINTS are so great, it's almost as good as the original.
 

 .....hey, NANA DIANA...
I know YOU think your SWEET CHEEKS is the sweetest...and I think so, too.

THESE cheeks are kinda sweet, too....
little hearts...
and just take a look at those little heart shaped, pursed lips...
sooo  stinkin' cute...



This one I am showing was for my daughter*in*law's birthday....

It's mounted on a board and I gave her a pretty, fancy little easel to hold it.

She's partial to anything patriotic so I knew she would love this little touch of AMERICANA and a bright color spot for one of her rooms.



...isn't she so adorable !!

I ordered several more for CHRISTMAS GIFTS so they can't be shown on the blog just yet... 

but, they are all SOOOOO cute and I can't wait to give each one picked out especially for that one special person in my life.
You KNOW I'll share them with you after Christmas...
(omygosh..it's right around the corner)

OOO, OK....
 


I'll share PART of another one with you....

 This one is so stinkin' cute, I don't know what to do....




Somebody in my family is gonna looove this for their very own....

 

and on a
RANDOM NOTE:

It was like finding a CHRISTMAS present when I found this at the grocery store....

We luv popcorn...
too high in calories....
we can't have it often...
but with THIS
Biggest Loser Approved
popcorn,
we can have a tiny snack of it and not feel so bad.

Look for it at your market...
WalGreen Drug
also carries it....

Not as good as if it was covered in salt and drenched in butter....*heavy sigh
but....it's good.






LOVE YOU ALL...
bj

Vee said...

Another day, another great new look around here! You should be designing blogs! I am also impressed that you have already started Christmas shopping. I need to take lessons.

Blondie's Journal said...

Thank you for the link...her artwork is one of a kind and just SO cute!! I have to have a peek. Good for you thinking of Christmas already!

I have to try that popcorn...if you eat the healthy stuff for awhile. you can indulge in the salty buttery stuff every once in awhile! Well, that's my motto anyway! :)))

XO,
Jane

Sarah said...

Cuteness for certain. I'm off to visit her shop.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love Diane's art and have a couple of her prints, too! The beach art...and Christmas are my favs! Sweet hugs!

Becky said...

Hi BJ. This artwork is adorable. I love it.
I especially like the patriotic too. Sooo cute.
Whoever are getting these will love them. Seems like we just had Christmas but here it is again. :)
Have a good evening BJ. Blessings.... Becky

Linda said...

My Summer would love Diane Duda's art! She collects Americana so I am always looking for things as gifts for her. I'll have to stop by that Etsy shop!

Vee is right - you are so good at blog designing! Amber has to do mine or I would be using a standard template - and nothing wrong with that!

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

Hi, bj! Diane's artwork is adorable! It just makes you smile. I bet your DIL loved her gift!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

She does great work - love the sign.
I need to get crackin on my Christmas shopping but have to get a few Bdays out of the way first.
Have a great weekend. When are you moving to the summer house?
Mary

Terra said...

The artist is darling and talented, thanks for pointing her out here.

NanaDiana said...

OMGOSH, bj. Those are the cutest SweetCheeks. Not quite as cute as the REAL LIVE SweetCheeks but pretty darned cute. I have to head over there-wouldn't that be a great gift for SOMEONE with cute cheeks in MY family? xo Diana

ps. The other day SCheeks other grandmother said- Julia (her real name). She looked at her and said- You know-YOU can just call me SWEET CHEEKS cuz that's my SECOND name! lol

Irene said...

I am so happy you buy from an artist. Will go to her site.

Pondside said...

BJ, you KNOW your cuteness! Thanks for the tip - I'm going to have a look.

Britta Hill said...

Dear BJ, so Christmas is nearing (yes - in one shop I already saw Lebkuchen - although we still have warm summer temperatures). You are planning far ahead - but that is good, especially if one finds so cute presents!
XO Britta

Beverly said...

There are going to be some big smiles in your family Christmas day. These are darling, BJ.

Happy Pink Saturday, my sweet friend.

Theresa said...

Oh so cute! I am going to shop too:) Have a blessed day dear BJ, HUGS!

Diane Duda said...

Thanks, BJ. You're the best.
Did you even know you were featuring me on my birthday?!? xo di

Donnie said...

You always find the cutest things. I definitely will be checking her out and start hunting for that popcorn. Yum. Take care and have a great weekend.

Patty Patterson said...

Those are really cute! And I eat the unhealthy popcorn. Either the Pour Over Movie theatre variety or the Caramel. I'm even getting tired of the word healthy. It's beginning to sound a bit profane. LOL The sugars and fats are the yummy stuff.... and while they may kill you, to die is gain... right? Heaven is a wonderful place... full of glory and grace.... I wanna see my saviour's face, cuz heaven is a wonderful place. *singing*

Madeline's Album said...

Cute. I love the patriotic one. Have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend. Madeline

Jeanne said...

Happy weekend.

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

Loved your folksy art! Cute. I bet I would love the popcorn too but not just one cup!

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

I am running right over to check her Etsy shop....her work is wonderful!

Sam's has some wonderful and healthy popcorn called Skinny popcorn. It is addicting. I haven't seen this brand but will be looking for it, too! I love my popcorn!
HPS!

LV said...

How lucky you are to have an original of one of these cuties. I love them.She does great work.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

...and I THOUGHT I knew that woman!!! I had NO idea what a talent she was! She never told me and we have been blogging back and forth..exchanged note...wha' the heck??!! LOL You are so right...just cute as heck. I think I see a bit of "Sweetcheeks" in those faces...don't you?
Hugs,
Mona

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Ohh...HOW ON EARTH DID I GET THAT WRONG?? I feel SOOO much better. I thought Diana was keeping something from me...and heavens, we couldn't have that. However...I did get it right that those paintings resemble our little Sweetcheeks for sure! :) Even Grandma thought so.
Hugs...
