We just got in a restock on the Hobbes-esque tiger and stumpy legged donkey and a few new friends arrived too!! The long legged giraffe is one of Rosemary’s favorites for hugging and loving as well as the tiny lambey. Lambey is just the right size for her little nine-month old sized hand to get a good strangle neck grip on and carry him all around with her all day long. Oh yes! We also got in lovely chocolate bunnies who would make a great springtime gift!
We put Rosemary on top of the big pile of Jellycat plush as we were working on pricing them and she squealed with joy! You can’t miss her sincere sweet smile as she looks into the face of a new little lion friend! She really seems to be loving plush toys of all kinds more and more, she has a death strangle grip on her lil lambey’s neck right now…
If you’ve never seen them before, the Jellycat line of plush toys from England is really wonderful. Really great quality, designs and reasonable pricing! Check out the Jellycat site… we carry a nice selection of their wonderful cutie pies! Only our favorites!

Message from John Straun: “For the third anniversary of my pop art website Super Punch, I invited my favorite artists to create a work of art. Asking them to create Tarot cards seemed like a a good way to unify the creations, while allowing the artists’ disparate styles to shine. The resulting artwork includes sculptures, paintings, and digital work, and ranges from the kawaii to the macabre, and funny to faithful. Please, enjoy the show.”
We just got in a lovely pop up book of flower bouquets! The arrangements are totally intricate and colorful. Just *pop* open this book and viola instant table centerpiece that doesn’t wilt or stink! I think this is such a creative and sweet idea. My mom sent one to my Grandmother recently and she just loved it…
