Flossy and Sophie's Reminder

Hi everyone! I was sick with the flu over Christmas, so I wasn't able to post anything sooner. Although I wasn't feeling well, Flossy the bunny and Sophie the bear were having their own mini party without me. Look at the yummy mini holiday treats they were munching without me! Cake and cookies and ice cream sandwiches and bowls of peppermint ice cream, oh my!

Oh, and they both received wonderful gifts from our dear friend Jane of Minifanticus blog too! Jane has such a fun miniatures blog and never fails to leave sweet comments on Plushpussycat blog. She's also so generous and thoughtful, often sending friends surprise gifts in the mail. Flossy and Sophie were over the moon with happiness when she sent them some dream-come-true gifts.

First, Flossy received this lifetime dream of a mini glitter village:

Flossy says she's never removing it from this spot! Here's how it looks in her bedroom:

Flossy and I are so grateful! We love the way it brings some fun color into the space. And if that wasn't gift enough, Jane sent a special bumblebee cup as a housewarming present for Sophie's new home, Brambleberry Cabin:

Now Sophie feels like Vanna White, showing off her new cup! Ta dah!

The cup is so tiny and detailed, with the handle a tree branch with leaves and a bumblebee on top. Perhaps you can see in the above photo that the bumblebee's head is facing to the right, away from Sophie.

The bumblebee's tail is facing the camera.

Sophie only uses this cup now, as it is a treasured gift from a treasured friend. Jane also sent some darling bear cookies and golden reindeer for crafting, but alas, I wasn't able to catch them properly with my camera. I'll show them another time. Thank you so much for ALL of your precious gifts, Jane, especially your priceless gift of friendship.

Flossy and Sophie have a reminder for all of you: The miniature dessert giveaway featuring mini cakes and pie from Kim Saulter of Kim's Mini Bakery ends Thursday, January 9th. Please make sure you are a follower of Plushpussycat blog with Google Friend Connect and that you have left a comment on the giveaway post. Good luck to everyone. I will announce the winners Saturday! Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

  49. La habitación en rosa es una dulzura. Unos regalos estupendos.
    Besos, Narán

  50. Vos photos sont tres belles ! J'aime beaucoup la cheminée et les petites maisons.

  51. Oh, dear. So sorry to read you had the flu over Christmas. :( It's really debilitating and takes a while to recoup from, but I do hope you're feeling much better now.
    Thanks for sharing those gorgeous pix, especially the glitter village and Flossy's room. Also, thanks for featuring my mini treats!
    Take care and Happy 2014!

  52. Hi Jennifer, I am so glad to hear that you are on the mend. The flue bug that has been going around knocking people off their feet, has been a difficult one to get through. Several of my family members have had it and had them flat on their backs, as well. It is good to start out 2014 feeling better than you did in 2013 though. :))
    The gifts from Jane would make anyone feel good! :D And I can perfectly
    understand why Flossy would never want to remove the glitter village from the mantle. It looks Perfect there and adds even More charm to an already charming space. And Sophie's bumble bee cup would be my favorite as well. Jane certainly has a Magic Touch and she has made your day and ours much brighter. Thank you for sharing them with us Jennifer! :D


  53. Dear Jennifer,
    I'm sorry to hear that you have been with the flu since Christmas, after all: even in my house have all been sick, and I did not do nothing but cook, wash, iron and aiding and treat inside and outside the home.
    Honestly, I could not wait that would end the festivities!
    It is better now, I'm taking control of the situation.
    Of course, I look forward to the extraction of the winners of the giveaway, and meanwhile I take this opportunity to wish you a peaceful and prosperous year 2014.
    I hope that we will be more in touch (my good resolutions for the new year)
    Lovely hugs my friend,
    Adorable gifts for Flossy and Sophie

  54. О, Дженнифер!
    Я надеюсь вам уже лучше! Такие прекрасные подарки должны поправить ваше здоровье! Я обожаю маленькую блестящую деревню!! Джейн прекрасный и талантливый художник!
    Выздоравливайте и наслаждайтесь волшебными подарками!

  55. Bellissimi regali! La camera è stupenda!

  56. Your photos are beautiful Jennifer!! :)

  57. So sorry you were sick over Christmas! I can sympathize a bit as I had Bronchitis over New Year's for a whole week and had to miss a lot of the 2014 festivities. Looks like you got some wonderful little gifts in the mail to cheer you up! Annndd those pancakes look absolutely yummy! :)
