Sweet Dreams and Cupcakes!

We had the first frost of the season this morning, so it seems just the right day to share this new cosy image, don't you just feel like snuggling under a quilt on these chilly days? I must say when I finally finished this new Print and saw her printed out I felt like a little girl giggling with delight! This little Mouse was a little shy about saying hello, so I have been working hard to finish a darling new Print for my Friends for Tea Series so that Bunny could keep her company on Etsy. Both Prints are available from my Etsy store. So without any further ado I would love to introduce you to your new friends -

Sweet Dreams
It had been a long day of playing out in the Bumpkin woods, Mouse always wants to keep up with the bears. As you can imagine with such little legs she gets ever so tired! Her Mother got together all her favourite pillows and tucked little Mouse in to sleep under her cosy patchwork quilt. "Sweet Dreams my dear", she whispered as Mouse drifted off to sleep.




Bunny and her Cupcakes

Don't you just love having Friends for Tea, using your sweet antique china? I can't think of a better guest than a wee fluffy Bunny, but you'd better eat some cupcakes before they are all gone!! Bunny much prefers her cupcakes to the healthy carrot option! This is the third in a darling series of Friends For Tea which will be available as an adorable Set in my Etsy Store.





Right, time for a cup of tea, all those cupcakes have made me hungry! Then back to my latest commission Bear. More soon. Hugs, Catherine xx

  14. Dear, dear, Catherine,

    I am really so happy that you stopped in to see my kitchen post. I have seen your blog name floating around people's blogs, but you know, you just can't visit everyone! I simply love your world; I too love rabbits and bears! My blog is a rather tempered down place of my art, but in reality, I am a dreamer and love nature! Tea time is a ritual chez nous, and your post just hit the spot. Please, please come back again! Anita
