Sweet Prizes From Ana of Mi Mundo en Rosa Blog

I remember feeling both shock and overwhelming gratitude when I won the recent giveaway from Ana of Mi mundo en rosa blog. I adore her handmade shabby chic dollhouse miniatures, and her prizes were absolutely perfect for Cupcake Cottage.


It's the detail in her work that makes it just so precious. I adore the itty bitty bowl of cupcake frosting with the tiny wooden spoon, the one unfrosted cupcake, and the colorful cupcake cookbooks (Ana sent an extra one as a gift--how thoughtful!). Both the picture frame and the hanging picture (which is covered with so many tiny flowers!) are so sweet--I can hardly wait to place them in Cupcake Cottage!


The cookies look amazingly realistic, and the hanging ornament for the drawer pull is so tiny that it's hard to believe! Really, I adore everything in Ana's Etsy shop, Mundorosa, and everything she sent. Thank you so much, Ana!


Speaking of giveaways, some of you may have noticed that I haven't joined as many as before. I've been really looking at what I can use for my projects and joining giveaways based on my project needs. Many of you can relate to having more ideas and miniatures than you can really use. Between giveaways, swaps, dollhouse shops, and miniatures fairs, it is very easy to accumulate a large number of miniatures!

I never want to offend anyone by not joining their giveaways, but I let those who can really use the prizes join, and I stay out of the giveaways if I know the prizes won't fit with my decor or current or upcoming project ideas. I love all of the sweet prizes up for offer, but I can't fit them all in my house! ;-) Thanks for letting me get that off my chest! :-) Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

  1. that bowl of frosting with the tiny cupcakes is amazing! so realistic! I know what you mean about giveaways- i try to only enter the ones that I feel i would actually use as well so that others can have a better chance at winning. i think it's a good thing.

  8. You're not alone there, I don't sign up for giveaways where the items don't really fit into my projects or style; leaving the odds higher for those who want them :)

  13. They are truly beautiful miniatures Jennifer - I agree Ana's work is wonderful!
    I understand completely about your views on accumulating miniatures - it is so easy to do & my taste have changed so much (which hasn't helped). That's why I have been furiously repainting everything, lol!

  14. Jennifer... I love your HONESTY! I think it's good to focus on giveaways that fit your decor in minis. So agree!! Hope you are feeling better..I'm on meds now...grrr, couldn't kick it without a doctors visit.
    So sad that we aren't at the Good Sam..omg, I bet there are tons of great fantastic minis to be had. Darn. Don't you have a show in Portland this weekend...maybe you are feeling well enough to troop on over. Good luck if you get to good. And, congrats on all your winnings...love the cupcakes. Be well my friend. xoso Sandy

    I agree with your opinion of the give away's, I practice it the same way, if I can't use it for one off my project then others should have a chance for winning the price.
    Have a great Sunday !!!

  30. Such a lovely prize you got, they all look so realistic, and cute! I agree with what you say about giveaways. They all are lovely, but it's better to concentrate on one's own needs for specific projects. Too much of everything just distracts one's thoughts and plans. Hugs Sanne

  50. Hmm ... You touch a mild button, I thought a lot about this topic and I absolutely agree with you: the give away is a sign of friendship precious, and for that I thank you forever, but I am involved in extraction ONLY if I think I can use the prize in a current project, so as not to take away the chance to win to other people.
    Of course, in this case, the prize is perfect for your cottage :-)
    In the past I have also been equally blessed by luck and I won a prize by Ana, and I must say that she becomes every day more talented :-)
