Tickled Pink!

Flossy and Sophie are both tickled pink! They've received some amazing gifts from two of the loveliest people ever. First, look what Carmen of mi pequena evasion blog sent:

Carmen is so talented and generous!

Cupcake Cottage now has a whole new set of gorgeous shabby chic dishes, a beautiful tin biscuit box, a darling shabby spider plant growing in a tin can, and so much more. Carmen gave prizes to her top five blog commenters recently. Her prizes were so thoughtful and perfect for Cupcake Cottage. Thank you sooooooo much, Carmen! I love everything you sent. It is a pleasure to leave comments on your fun blog.

Next, look what happened when I made purchases from Magda at 1717mk on Etsy. First, I bought this sweet red tea kettle, and look at how it arrived from Poland, wrapped up like a tiny masterpiece:

What a treat to receive this specially-wrapped purchase!

And here is the same darling teapot in Cupcake Cottage:

Chocolate chip cookies and Magda's darling red tea kettle.

Then I saw Magda's new line of needle-felted miniature furniture, and I just had to have a small hand-painted pink stool that she made. This is how the stool arrived:

Magda's amazing miniature diorama!

Can you believe it?! She made me this gorgeous diorama with the stool, and she even included one of her darling signature miniature teddy bears! Notice the curtained window behind the bear. Wow!!!!! Her little bear is settling in in Cupcake Cottage's bedroom now:

Look at that cute face!

Thank you soooooooo much, Magda! There are no words for the gratitude I feel. Magda's blog has more incredible photos of her work. Don't miss it!

Darling cookies and cupcakes from Sweet Petite Shoppe.

Last, but not least, I'd like to introduce you to a fun new blog. Catherine of Sweet Petite Shoppe on Etsy has a new blog showcasing her darling miniature needle-felted animals and tasty sweet treats. If you have a chance, please visit her blog and give her a big blogland welcome. You won't be disappointed in her gorgeous creations.

Next post I'll tell you some amazing dollhouse news. Yes, it has all changed again, and that's why Sophie the bear is nowhere to be seen. I can't wait to share the news with you. xoxo Jennifer

  7. Hi Jennifer!
    I see, tiny bear is so happy in new house :) when he knew, that his favorite stool takes off to America, hooked to this! I had to do tiny window, because this bear so like to look out of the window! Now, I see, he was right, he missed his friend dog, now are together;)

I think this will surprise you... but I really love this little cute bear! ;O) But everything else is fantastic, too - so many thoughtful gifts, Carmen is as talented as generous (You know I was lucky to be among the Five, too) and the items you purchased at Magda's and what she added is stunning. But now I'm totally curious about the big news - don't let us wait too long...
