Flossy the bunny, as usual, has been busy baking cupcakes at Cupcake Cottage. This time it's vanilla cupcakes with creamy coconut frosting and a cherry on top. These are definitely a Cupcake Cottage favorite!
Flossy has been using a favorite cookbook, but in case that's not enough, look at all the darling cupcake books sent by Anna of LITTLETHINGS blog:
Aren't these tiny books precious? Anna also sent a pretty card and two more books, including a vintage one for my mid-century modern dollhouse and a special bear bedtime stories book. Sophie the bear has already gotten her paws on that one and has moved it to Brambleberry Farmhouse. ;-) Thank you so much for your thoughtful birthday gifts, Anna. We all love them!
Next up, Maria of Pretty Things Ireland blog sent a wonderful birthday package filled with darling minis and craft supplies:
Isn't her card beautiful? And that miniature bicycle is too cute! See the tiny red lipstick on the white tray? Flossy has put that in her bedroom already. :-) The pink hat and purse were hand crocheted by Maria too. I keep the tiny guinea pig candle holder near my computer monitor, so I think of Maria often. Thank you so much, Maria! You helped make my birthday so special!
Finally, I received a wonderful package from Sans! of The Dollhouse Diaries blog. Sans! offered her readers some miniature paper sunflowers, and I jumped at the opportunity. Then Sans! surprised me by sending all these:
As soon as I received the package, I started making mini bouquets with the tiny rosebuds. You'll see some of them in future posts. I'd also love to make a mini pond with huge pink lotus flowers, so maybe you'll see that one day too. Thank you so much for your thoughtful gifts, Sans! You really brightened my day with all of these gorgeous flowers.
Blog friends are real friends--isn't it so? I feel very blessed indeed. Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer
