Sweet Swap With Sanne, Plus Cakes!

I'd wanted to do a swap with Sanne for several years, and recently I finally had my chance! Sanne made the cutest, most wonderful gifts, including some fun, colorful drinks with tiny umbrellas and straws. Flossy and Sophie just adore them, especially during the heat wave we've been having:


Plus Sanne sent all of the other goodies too (two pretty buntings, a tiny book, a yummy cherry cake under glass) and the wonderful shabby chic butterfly blackboard and framed pictures below. Mmm, that cake looks so tasty to Flossy and Sophie. Flossy is planning to rip open the cover and start gorging on cake as soon as we all look away. I hope it doesn't turn into a brawl! That would be so unladylike. :-D


Oh, we can't wait to start decorating with all of these cute things! But there's more! As soon as Flossy saw these adorable tiny stuffed bunnies and cat that Sanne sent, she had to steal away to her bedroom with them for a fun snuggle:


Aren't those tiny stuffed animals the sweetest?! Have you seen Sanne's blog, Sannen vintilla - In my attic? If not, you're missing something. I love Sanne's special style, and I see pictures of her dollhouse interiors frequently on Pinterest. Her blog is not to be missed! If you'd like to see the swap gifts I sent Sanne, check out her post here. Thank you so much, Sanne! This swap was a total blast!

Then I just have to show you these wonderful cakes and ice cream from Jane Smith of Minifanaticus blog and Minifanaticus on Etsy. All we can say is yum, yum, yummy:


Sophie has nearly gotten the cake nearest to her into her left paw. If she eats the whole thing in one bite, do you think Flossy will notice? ;-) Is it my imagination, or have Flossy's eyes narrowed at the sight of Sophie's paw near the cake?


Seriously, Jane made these wonderful treats with my birthday cards in mind. She even looked through my Pinterest boards for ideas. How thoughtful! Thank you so much, Jane! You're the best! I'm putting on weight just looking at these delicious treats! :-D Next time I'll have some Sylvanian Families scenes to show you all, plus more. Until then, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

  5. Hi Jennifer! Wonderful swap gifts! The stuffed animals are sooooo cute!! The mounted butterfly pictures are very well made. Thanks for the link to Sanne's blog, I'll check it out.
    When it comes to food there seems to be some serious rivalry going on between Sophie and Flossy!
    Kind regards, Brian.

  26. Jennifer,

    What fun and cute little things! I'm glad you finally got to do your swap.

    I am worried about Flossie and Sophie though! They seem to eat an extraordinary amount of sweets! You almost never see them eat anything else! Maybe they need some carrots or some other veggies in their diets. I'm just sayin'.......

  27. The butterfly frame is so cute! The cakes look real! You know my penchant for sweets, whether they are life-size or miniature :) The mini plushies are wonderful props! I think it's impossible to make such small things!!!
