Wrap it Up with Laura Lasorda: Cookie Style

As you may recall, our forever friend of the Habersham Forest Laura Lasorda is a pro when it comes to wrapping gifts. She has a special and creative touch, using embellishments and other items that jazz up any gift. In fact, we love her wrapping so much that it pains us to open them up (although, of course we do).

For the holidays Laura shared a little something different with us….and although I am not supposed to eat chocolate  (because I am a pekingese and mom says chocolate is bad for dogs), I can’t help but crave a cookie out her delightful and beautiful basket.

What a great idea for the holidays. Whether you need a gift for your neighbor or are simply hosting a party at your home, wrap it up: Cookie Style.

Love,

SASSAFRASS Jones

Holiday Decor: Wrap It Up with Laura LaSorda

20151129_154818_001Welcome to a new a series we are going to start called Wrap it Up with Laura Lasorda.

For those of you who do not know me, I am Sassafrass Jones, a perky Pekingese with “Cateye” glasses who finally found her “Forever home” in Habersham Forest. In other words I am a dog and now, thanks to my mom Cathleen Smith, I have my very own Steiff dog with my name on the tags. 20151019-03

I blog about all things, but especially all of the exciting things that happen in our home, The Habersham Forest. Currently, my mom has just released her second book of the Sassafrass Jones series called Sassafrass Jones & Her Forever Friends ABCs. She wrote it with the ultimate Steiff authority, Rebekah Kaufman. But the book is just the beginning. There are  jewels and crowns and dresses for all of us animals in the forest.

This post focuses on one of my favorite things: gifts!  Laura Lasorda, my mom’s “forever friend” is a pro when it comes to giving gifts and especially the wrapping of the gifts. Sometimes the wrapping is so cool, that we don’t even want to unwrap the package (but of course, we always do).

My forever friends and I can always spot a Laura Lasorda gift a mile away. From the adornments and color to the themes and shapes, Aunt Laura is  the “wrapping queen”.   Her gifts (aka works of art) are magical, and the latest batch that arrived for us just the other day was no exception.

xoxo  Sassafrass Jones

My Friend, The Princess of Beverly Hills

With Thanksgiving approaching, I wanted to talk about one of my very special friends. Her name is the Princess of Beverly Hills and she is the best friend a girl could ask for.

Our moms get along very well because they both are devoted to making about1people happy and doing great things for the world.  Her mom’s name is Stacey Whitmore and we had so much fun last month at Haute Dog LA fashion show benefitting Canine Companions for Independence.

So, here she is, my special friend…a total glamour puss but a true gem.  And she has some of the best jewels I have ever seen on a canine. But even more than her beauty, she has a good heart. She is the sweetest little dog and shows kindness to others and is always nice. Since she was the runt of the litter and adopted into her Forever Home like me, I think we have a lot in common.

Now, you too can  own a stuffed animal version of Princess of Beverly Hills. While she may not bark or listen to commands, she is still a cuddly ball of love and fun.  The Beverly Hills Palace and Plush Playset is super cool.

palaceHere is what the description of the palace that I found on Amazon. Sorry princess, but I am not always the best with words.

 Princess of Beverly Hills from Nate and Jules is a real life fairytale about the runt of the litter who is adopted and moves to Beverly Hills. She grows up to be a smart, caring, beautiful, talented Princess and lives a happily-ever-after, fabulous perfect life. and although she’s beautiful and glamorous, Princess knows it’s how she treats others that matters most. Plush toys feature finest materials, including upscale brush able hair for ears, paws and tail. Comb included.  Click here to buy yours now before they sell out!

What a great holiday gift for every little girl and every dog lover!

Love you Princess!  Hugs and Kisses from Sass in Habersham Forest!
