Time to Meet the Shopkeeper

Last time, Sophie the bear was trying to keep Luna the puppy from gorging on delicious cake. Now Sophie takes a closer look at all of the colorful cakes in the cake shop. "Oh, how I miss baking cakes since I've moved into my own house. Flossy the bunny and I were busy from dawn until dusk baking desserts in Cupcake Cottage. Those were such sweet times."


Luna makes a small whimpering sound and jumps on Sophie's leg. Sophie looks up. "Welcome to my cake shop!" chirps a sweet bluebird.



Sophie and the bluebird-shopkeeper start chatting like old friends. The shopkeeper is very outgoing and friendly. "Please sit down for a piece of cake." "Oh, I wish I could," says Sophie, but I must get home. It will be dark soon." "No problem! I hope you'll come back soon. You're welcome to my cake shop anytime!" says the bluebird.


"I will definitely come back tomorrow, and I'll bring my friend Flossy with me. Goodbye! See you soon!" "Goodbye!"


Sophie hurries home to call Flossy with all of the exciting news. "Imagine that! A bluebird owns a new cake shop in town."

Now, dear readers, I must ask your advice on a name for our new bluebird character. She makes friends easily and is honest and trustworthy too. If I ultimately choose a name you suggest, I'll send you a special prize. Be a follower of this blog and leave any name suggestions in a comment or comments on this post. I'll announce a winner within a couple of weeks. Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

  6. Привет, Дженнифер!
    Я рада, что в магазин прилетела синяя птица! Мне кажется, что она прилетела из дальних стран.
    Хочу предложить дать ей русское имя Дарья. Ласково можно звать - Даша, Дашенька. Это имя очень популярно в России.
    С наилучшими пожеланиями. Елена.

    Hi, Jennifer!
    I'm glad the store flew blue bird! It seems to me that it has arrived from distant countries.
    I would like to offer to give her Russian name Daria. Tenderly - Dasha. This name is very popular in Russia.
    Hugs ♥

  7. I'm thinking either Piper or Bess. Those seem to fit in with your other name choices, sweet with a touch of vintage :)

  8. Hello Jennifer,
    How great, a new friendship starting! I do not know why, but being the owner of a cake shop the name "Meringue" popped into my mind.

  9. Hello, Jennifer: I have two. Skye, for pretty obvious reasons or Annie. I'm not sure why Annie, maybe because my husband and I each have an aunt named Annie. Annie the baker.
    Anyways, whatever you name her she is very cute.

  17. Jennifer, you have done it again! You have created another sweet little character and I adored it the moment I set my eyes on it. It is just so fetching! I had decided on Bluebelle but then I noticed that Fabiola had the same inspiration. So I will forgo since nothing else comes to mind that really does it for me. First come first served basis applies here. I guess great minds think alike. The name Bluebelle just simply popped into my mind. I think it suits her to a T.

  18. Such a sweet shop owner! She sells cakes and probably cookies too, so why not name her Cooky. Adorable new character!

  20. Hi Jennifer:) The bluebird is so lovely, she's very lucky to have this wonderful cake shop:) About the name... maybe Daisy? I don't know why, this was the first name I thought about when I saw her and her flowers... I think Poppy is a nice name too:)If you want to know it, the translation in Spanish is Daisy: Margarita, Poppy:Amapola. I love these flowers, they are so wonderful , like your bluebird:)

    Hugs, Candy:)

  22. oh Id call her Milly and make her a nice apron since she bakes a lot. you wouldnt want her feathers to get singed from the hot oven. (I was going to say Molly but that reminded me of Molly Coddle and I dont see the blue bird that way)

    We think she should be called "Lola" or "Bree" or "Tiani".

  26. Hi Jenifer! I enjoyed meeting the new character to the wonderful scenes in your blog.
    In Portuguese, the children call the birds "Piu-piu", I believe that the sound in English is Peew-peew. Maybe you want to to think about. ;)
    Hugs.

  27. Periwinkle! Because she's blue and she wears a periwinkle flower in here hair and her lovely new shop can be called "Periwinkle's Pastries". You know Jen, you have such a talent for making cakes in mini. They look so fabulously real.

  28. Jennifer,

    I love your little bird. She is very colorful and sweet. How about Gwendolyn for her name? Not only does it have a nice old-fashioned quality, it was my Mother's name!
    Mom loved the color blue and She was one heck of a fine baker too.

  31. Hi Jennifer! First off, a charming new character to add to your stories, she looks so sweet! Secondly, (I'm going to get a bit technical now...) the bluebird species is called 'Sialia' so I'm championing the name 'Sally' as the nearest to it! Kind regards, Brian.

  32. In Australia we often call people by the opposite of their name or characteristics. So if your bird is blue you would have to call it red. Weird I know.

  35. Hola mi querida Jennifer, hace mucho que no entro por los blogs por falta de tiempo.
    Me han encantado esas deliciosas tartas, veo que estoy de suerte al menos para participar en tu premio.
    Es una linda pajarita y se le ve muy coqueta...el nombre... déjame pensar...
    Yo la llamaría DULCE y además le viene bien ya que está rodeada de rica pastelería.
    Te deseo un feliz fin de semana.
    Mil besos de tu siempre amiga...Julia.

  36. Ah!!!
    En Español el significado de DULCE es el sabor del azucar.
    Más besos.
