cuppie


This is what Loopy stitched together for my Christmas gift. Isn't he adorable? She named him Cuppie. Loopy's biggest challenge in finishing Cuppie for the holidays was keeping him away from Duke, who somehow identified that she was, in fact, whipping up some sort of little cake and it really had his attention. He tried to steal Cuppie away from her stitching basket a few times. Even now, Cuppie is still sort of under a house-arrest in the china cabinet, away from Duke's beady eyes.


Veto and I stole away on a date to see Sherlock Holmes. I can't tell you how great it was... just fantastic. Not just the story, but the costumes, the sets and even the props. It made me want to come home and turn the living room into one giant science experiment. If you haven't seen it, be sure to. If you don't have a full-fledged crush on Robert Downey Jr., you will after this movie. 

This is a perfect role for him... especially if you loved him in Charlie Chaplin. It must be that he's so utterly charming and believable in the role of the charming but insufferable, misunderstood genius... because I think he is. He keeps picking great roles, and Guy Ritchie keeps turning out good movies.  The cinemetography is dark and moody, Holmes and Watson (played by Jude Law) have great scenes together - it's comical, so don't expect an overly dark thriller.  Just enough action to keep you drawn into the story but mostly, this is about the character of Sherlock and his unusual ways.  Oh, and even the opening and ending titles are cool to see.  Check it out.


Five Cuppies out of five!

Cuppie is just SO adorable, what with those sparkly little sprinkles and all. Very nice. I stitched up some of my own little stuff cupcakes, and my cat and dog managed to decide they -must- be toys for them. Funny, apparently animals love a good cupcake stuffie as well as the rest of us.

Can't wait to see Holmes!! Avatar must come first though, as soon as we can get in to see it.

I'm so glad you liked Sherlock Holmes. It received not so great reviews, so I was debating whether to go. And, this girl has been seriously in love with Robert Downey Jr for years now!

Oh I loved Holmes! and I've always been a Robert fan :) He has that "bad boy" thing and adorable too!
What a precious gift. That Loopy has inherited skills :)

Duke & his cupcakes. Is there doggie cupcake-athon, not in the sense of marathon, but in the sense of to address his addictions? He needs desperate reform considering his determination to get a fabric one!

I applaud Loopy for her clever craftiness. And I sooooo want to see this movie. I have adored Robert since his Brat Pack days. Le sigh. He has aged WELL.

Saucy darling, why is your blog not updating on my bloglines? When was the last time it gave me a new post? I could be here for a year.

Oh you lucky girl!!! Cuppie is adorable.....unfortunately, it is becoming apparent to me that Cindylou has no interest in crafts, cooking or her camera :( I keep trying.....maybe someday!

Robert Downey Jr. was FABULOUS as Sherlock Holmes:)
