Mavis Mouse and the Homemade German Delicacies

Mavis mouse has been in the kitchen again.


This time she made a giant feast of German delicacies. There's a selection of fancy meat dishes, fine wine, sliced dark bread, potato salad, and cucumber salad. Yummy!


Looks like the German egg salad is even more enticing than her other favorite food--cheese! ;-)



Good thing Mavis Mouse received such beautiful foods and fancy wine (everything but the cheese plates) from her good friend Mieke of Petite Victorian Rose blog. :-) Mieke made all the foods herself--wow! Thank you so much, Mieke!

Notice the hutch in Mavis Mouse's kitchen? I made it from a Chrysnbon kit after procrastinating for a year or two. I just finished it last night so I could show Mieke's beautiful gifts. Yay!

In addition to all of the homemade German delicacies, Mieke also sent a gorgeous handmade table runner that has become the perfect rug in Mavis Mouse's bedroom:


Last but not least, Mieke also sent this gorgeous handmade dress and purse set for Orange Blossom, one of my vintage Strawberry Shortcake dolls:


There's a tiny red butterfly button on the front of the dress--so whimsical and wonderful. Thank you so much for your sweet and gorgeous gifts, Mieke, and for your precious gift of friendship! I feel so lucky and grateful. Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer
