The Mini-Me's Are Here!

We read about Mini-Me's at genji's corner.  Lynne at Dip-Dip and the Bridge makes them to order. I clicked over to her blog to find out how to get Mini-Me's for Those Brindle Kids.

Look what arrived today - a package from across the pond!
Cool Royal stamp!
Via Royal Air Mail!
Those Brindle Kids had to check the package out.
Truly giving the package the once-over.
Walker doing same.
When I stopped taking pictures of the package, I opened it.  Inside were three little bundles.
Truly sniffs the bundles first.
Here's what we found -
The card reads, "Handmade Gifts by L
Sewn and Crocheted Gifts for Everyone
Those Brindle Kids' Mini-Me's!
Truly in the background..  Maggie in the foreground.  Look at her eye - she's so excited!
Truly with his Mini-Me.
Maggie and her Mini-Me.
Walker and his Mini-Me.
Lynne got everything right - from custom-made "brindle fur" all the way down to the white on the tip of Maggie's tail.
She even got their ears right.  Truly and Walker flop their ears about while
Maggie usually keeps her ears back against her head.
Walker is especially fascinated with the Mini-Me's.  He badly wants to play with his.
But no, they're not for playing.  They're for traveling.  When we travel, but can't take Those Brindle Kids with us, the Mini-Me's will get to go.  Here's what we were doing prior to the arrival of the Mini-Me's.

Many thanks to Lynne at Dip-Dip and the Bridge for sharing her amazing crochet talent with us and to Gyeong at genji's corner for pointing her out to us.  Two more reasons why I love the blogging world!


  1. That is such a cute idea! I'm totally stealing it.

    Matt and I are taking Sophie on her first vacation soon. . . crossing our fingers that we won't have to revert to a mini-Sophie!

    1. Steal away! I do it all the time! In fact, I used your Glee reference, Slap him down like the hand of God, recently. It felt good!

      I'll wait to hear how Sophie does on her first vacation. We actually cancelled a Thanksgiving trip to the beach last year because Walker (and his anxiety) was so new to us.

  2. Oh, that is a great idea for traveling! If I get to go to conferences again this year for the blog, it might just save me from coming home with an Italian Greyhound! :P They are all adorable!

  3. Just love the Mini-Me's. Totally for the humans. The pups would have been happier with treats from the UK. I never thought of taking them on the road with me. A little bit of home.

  4. Guess what?! We got mini me's in the mail today too! I'm going to post about them next Tuesday. It will take me that long to get any good pictures (ha). What a cool idea to travel with the mini me's. Lynne sure is a talent lady.

  5. Ohhh, I love seeing your mini-mes with their much bigger name-sakes! I am really happy you are pleased with them. It is so much fun seeing them on your blog over there.

    What a fantastic idea to take them on your travels - that is the sweetest thing I ever heard :)

    Thank you very much for your order, it was my pleasure to make them for you all!

  6. They are so cute! Traveling with them is a great idea.

  7. So lovely. Your brindle gang looks happy with their mini-mes. The bandanas are a nice touch!
