Monday Challenge!

Over at Owlhaven there's a Monday Challenge: Take three photos in your home that are reflections of YOU! What small items or small areas do you have in your home that makes your home your own? What shows your personality?Post your photos with explanations on your blog by Tuesday evening and put the link in her comments section. Wednesday morning she'll look at all the entries and choose one that she thinks shows the MOST personality or is the most interesting. Here are three of my favorite things, ones that make my house mine/ display my personality:

The first is my side of the master bathroom sink, with all my getting ready products. What can I say? I'm a Virgo, so looking good is essential!

I collect uniquely-constructed dolls, made to sit at the edge of a shelf. This is the orignal one, an angel of sorts, that got me started. My father's sister, whom I most closely resemble, brought this to me while I was still at Baylor. The tiny card inside the netting reads: Sing like nobody's listening... Dance like nobody's watching! Behind her on the shelf is part of a collection of Matriochkas from Russia. My lovely sister, Kelly and her husband Justin brought back several: a large one for me (of course) and three smaller sets for each of my daughters.

I love this one! I love it that she is so glammed up, even carrying a shopping bag. The small 'bag' reads: Who are all these kids and why are they calling me mom? There are moments like that for me.
