Bluebelle and Sophie Give Thanks!

Poor Bluebelle! She was working all day in her cake shop with nowhere to sleep after a hard day's work! Now she finally has a sleeping nook in the rafters of her shop where she can sleep at night or even take a cat nap in the middle of the day, when there are no customers, of course. ;-)

Look how peacefully she rests on her perch in the rafters! I think she's snoring! tee hee!

And then she can fly down to the cake shop to start another day! Bluebelle is definitely doing a little happy dance and giving thanks for her new bedroom, and it wouldn't have been completed nearly as quickly if I hadn't seen Jane's post on using foam core board in miniature building. (Shh! I didn't even have to glue in the loft, since I cut the foam core board slightly large and squeezed it between the walls of the cake shop! It's very stable and so simple! ;-))

Next, Sophie is giving thanks for two things. First, we won Lisa's amazing autumn "Give Thanks" giveaway over at Mini Addictions blog, and Lisa wrapped everything so beautifully and sent so many gorgeous prizes and extra gifts! Mmm, look at that tasty pumpkin pie and those gorgeous Georgia peaches in a handmade basket!

But that's not all! Lisa also sent all these goodies, including this incredible dollhouse miniature Halloween rug:

Can you believe how tiny the stitches are?! Lisa used a magnifier to make it--what a very generous and thoughtful gift! Thank you so much for all of these autumn treasures, Lisa--we love everything you sent. Check out Lisa's blog, Mini Addictions, if you haven't already. She's a very talented miniaturist with a fun blog and amazing giveaways!

There's one more thing that Sophie is giving thanks for: my husband cut some extra windows in Sophie's house:

Now I can get better light in Sophie's cabin for taking photographs. Sophie loves her new windows and is planning to put some pretty curtains up next. Where's Flossy? She's ecstatic with the gifts she received in the mail from a very talented artist. One of the gifts is a pretty new outfit, which Flossy is trying on right now. :-) You'll see Flossy in the next post! Until then, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer

    Great way to use the foam core board! And congratulations to the fantastic gifts!

  7. A very good idea making a loft bedroom for bluebird. It's so important to get a good sleep after a hard day's work.

    Hugs, Drora

  17. Congratulations on your prizes, Jennifer, Lisa's work is wonderful, enjoy it all :D!! I love Bluebelles' sleeping nook, what a great find.
    But maybe you still have to glue this foam core board in place, because it can go loose by the (heavy) snoring of Bluebelle :D LOL! No, I am just teasing you, it all looks wonderful.
    I wish you a nice weekend!
    Hugs, Ilona

  22. Que feliz se ve a Bluebelle con su rincón donde dormir. Yo tambien estaría bailando.
    Los regalos de Lisa, son preciosos.
    Que los disfrutes.

  23. What a wonderful idea for Bluebelle's private place... it looks so cozy and nice, no wonder she is happy. Just the perfect solution for a birdie... but I really don't think she was snoring... no, no... I bet this was just a case of... eh... let's say... heavy breathing... ;O) And great that your hubby brought more light into Sophie's home, this will be welcome during the dark months. And about your presents - simply stunning! Enjoy!


  24. Has encontrado un bonito y tranquilo rincón para Bluebelle. Los regalos son preciosos.

  25. The loft is perfect. And how cute is that pompom garland!!! I love your winnings. The rug is so adorable. And so are the pumpkins, pie and the bunting.
    I'm sure the extra window will be very helpful with your photos.

  26. I particularly loved Blubelles tea pot high up under the rafters. That way she can begin a new day with a nice cup of tea :). Lucky she can fly and no ladder is needed atall. Such sweet cake, pumpkins, rug and all. Can't believe the patience that must have gone into that rug. Blessings, Pam xx

  27. It's so cute, at always!
    I love the nook for Bluebelle ^^
    Greetings for your husband too
