Rabbit House Euphoria




 
 

We are at the Periwinkles' on a Saturday afternoon. Mommy and Daddy have put aside the books they have been reading to have some tea. They are enjoying the comfort of their new living room. Jemima is sitting on the green sofa with Mommy. Molly and Quackie are listening to her while she tells them a story. Little Pip is sitting on Jemima's rocking horse.



After a while James goes into the kitchen to prepare supper. He loves their new kitchen. It's so big and so bright, even on rainy days, due to the yellow tiled walls with blue flowers on them. They now have a large kitchen stove to cook their tea on, a hutch containing all their kitchenware, a sink to wash the dishes in and even a new yellow washing machine for their towels and clothing.


  
James especially likes the new white refrigerator. Not only does it keep all his favourite cheese from melting, it also helps keep Jemima's milk fresh, as well as Molly and Pips's cat food. James is preparing carrot and Camembert casserole. After taking some vegetables, Camembert and a packet of butter out of the fridge, he starts chopping up the carrots. 



Meanwhile, in the living room, Jemima and Quackie are climbing the stairs. What are they up to? And where has Mrs Periwinkle gone? Let's see if we can find her...



Oops, Julie is on the toilet. Better give her some privacy!!



Back in the living room, Molly and Pip are having a drink. 



Oh wow, Pip is really thirsty

Let's see what Jemima is doing.



Jemima is sitting on the carpeted floor of her bedroom with a dreamy expression on her face. She is wearing a basket on top of her head and her collection of My Little Pony horses is spread out before her. These MLPs look like vintage ponies from the eighties! Maybe they used to belong to Mrs Periwinkle when she was little? "What are you doing Jemima?" I ask her.



"Mima is da Queen of Ponylan! All da ponies come to show me dere spesho powass!"

I think she means "special powers". :) It sounds like a fun game. Can we play? Oops, Quackie is giving me a very stern look... She doesn't like to share Jemima. I don't want to start a fight, so I'd rather get back to James or Julie.



Aaah, Julie has made herself comfortable in the green armchair. She is holding her knitting in front of her and is looking out the balcony window with a faraway look on her face, just like Jemima some moments before. 



"Isn't this pleasant?" she thinks to herself. "It's simply wonderful to have a warm and spacious home! I can sit here by myself, next to the cosy space heater and just knit and relax. And the view is lovely, too!" She adds.

The Periwinkles are really enjoying themselves today. I am very happy for them, after all, the move was a lot of hard work. Let's see if Daddy has finished cooking.  



It looks like the casserole is in the oven. James is standing in front of the fireplace, kindling the fire. He seems to be looking into the distance, while Molly snuggles up on the sofa cushion behind him and Sukie, James's plant makes a soft little sound while scratching her tummy with one of her leaves. 

"This house is just perfect for us. We should have moved a looong time ago..." James says to himself while continuously scraping away the ashes. 



James stays immersed in his thoughts for such a long time that he doesn't notice the light fade. "Oh, it's gotten dark!" He suddenly realises. "Lovely. Now we can relax by the light of the fire, kids," he says to Sukie and Molly and they quietly agree.

Thank you! :)

    1. Cutata, thank you so much!! :)

      Jemima has a great imagination and she is always making up new games...

      The place where I have lately bought my Re-ment items is a website called Plasticpop. They sell Pullips (and other dolls) and Re-ment.

      Have fun looking. :)

    1. Hallo Kyra,

      I agree, Sylvanians on the toilet make me laugh, too. :D Maybe because they are so cute, no matter what they are doing. ;)

      Ganz lieben Dank für's Vorbeischauen und für Deinen Kommentar und Dir ebenfalls einen angenehmen Sonntag! :)

  5. Das Schicksal einer Mutter... nie hat man seine Ruhe... nicht mal, wenn man geschäftlich unterwegs ist... *grins* Kein Zweifel möglich, die Perwinkles haben es richtig gut getroffen mit ihrem neuen Heim, so richtig ein Platz zum Wohlfühlen. Bleibt nur zu hoffen, dass James vor lauter Begeisterung nicht seinen Auflauf vergisst... Und wer weiß, vielleicht werden wir irgendwann doch mit der Königin vom Ponyland mitspielen dürfen... wenn Quackie uns lässt...

    Liebe Grüße
    Birgit

  7. The house looks even better in a story! I love the way you have set this building up (though I've told you that already ;D) - I agree, the kitchen looks so bright and airy with the wallpaper. And the washing machine and fridge look great in there too! Little Jemima is so cute with her toys :)

    1. Hello Aranera, thank you for your comment!! :)

      I agree with you. I am also happiest with the new house when the Periwinkles are working away (or relaxing! ;) ) inside it. Especially since they are enjoying it so much. :)
