Mademoiselle Bloom at home ....


..... at Cottage Garden.


The delectable Mademoiselle Bloom - full name Mademoiselle Bloom Where You Are Planted - arrived from France some weeks ago now (I am so behind with my blog posts) and has settled in very nicely.  However the inclement weather has kept her indoors and she spends many a day looking wistfully out of the window at the late autumn garden.  She will be a very happy hare once spring arrives and she can sit outside and enjoy the delights of Cottage Garden, her flopsy ears and pretty face undoubtedly tilted to the sun.

In the meantime she is peeping out at garden views from various windows in the house, more of that in a later post perhaps.  She has proved very popular with everyone who visits and indeed Bobbi in particular is very taken with her, athough I am careful not to leave them alone - Bobbi can be quite boisterous:-)

Mademoiselle Bloom's outfit is beautifully detailed with antique lace on her linen pantaloons topped by a charming tunic with lace neckline.  Stephanie has embroidered delicate and exquisite stitching on an ear and on one pretty turn of an ankle; her expressive face is a joy! 

Many of you will already be familiar with Stephanie's wonderful collection of hares but if you have yet to discover her blog or Etsy shop you can find them here and here.  Enjoy!

Have a great weekend.

  1. Hello Jeanne:
    She is absolutely lovely and we are sure cannot wait for spring to arrive. And whilst you are perhaps wise not to leave her alone with Bobbi, spare a thought too to newly planted carrots and lettuce seedlings next year!

    We leave for Venice within a few hours and will be 'off air' for a week or so. But we shall look forward to catching up on our return.

    1. Have a lovely time in Venice my dears. A perfect time to visit I feel - my OH took me there in December 2004 for my birthday and it was magical. Look forward to hearing all about it on your return. x

  2. She's gorgeous and looks as though she's settled into Suffolk life very well. I'm glad Bobbi is making her feel welcome too :-)

    1. She is lovely isn't she Su. I'm so pleased with her.

      Bobbi would love her own special little hare but has re-discovered the pleasures of playing with her cat-nip mouse! x

  3. Perhaps she is a little homesick for France? I am sure she will be less pensive once the spring arrives and maybe Bobbi is helping her to settle in to her new life too? She is very beautiful.

  8. Dear Jeanne,

    Oh my goodness me! Such kindness and sweet words have left me a little pink in the cheeks and most grateful. Thank you for this sweet tribute to such a shy and gentle hare.

    I mostly hope you are feeling more uplifted than at the onset of autumn.

    Warmest, most grateful wishes from misty France.

    Stephanie

  11. Dear Jeanne,

    I enjoyed seeing Mademoiselle Bloom in your house. She looks enchanting with her white linen trousers and floral top. We still enjoy her friend, mademoiselle country garden very much! I have given her a prominent place on a table in our bedroom :-) When spring arrives I will take her to my garden. Stephanie is really talented to make such beautiful hares!

    Wish you a lovely weekend!

  13. A most charming addition to your home Jeanne - Mme Bloom looks a most sweet and elegant creature and it's much to cold for her or indeed hare to be out in the garden just now.

  14. Enchanting - especially with her pink flower choker!

  17. A big snowy winterhug to you dear Jeanne. I hope everything is fine with you and that you're enjoying these last weeks before Christmas. Here in south of Sweden we took the step into December with lots and lots of now. So the Christmas feeling is definitely on. :)

    Take care!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for indulging me in my musings. I enjoy reading your comments and will reply, time and tide permitting, on this page... at some juncture ... which may be several days later ... oh to have more time to blog!

I love to visit you in return also.

Jeanne
