    Have you ever just ordered something online because it looked like it would make you happy? Even if it was something totally random and unlike you to do?

    A week or so ago, PW posted up a link to an Etsy seller on Facebook and I clicked on it. It was an Etsy store that sells totally handmade small animal plushies.

    The plushies were adorable and really realistic looking (and priced WAY too low) so I had to order one. I ordered a guinea pig and forgot about it until I walked to my mailbox.

    It came in the mail today and it is just... so happy! The packaging was adorable and the guinea pig is an AMAZING plushie.

    So, I just wanted to share it's adorableness with everyone! It even came with a little carrot. I mean, how CUTE is that?! Haha :p

    That's an awesome plushie alright.

    To answer you question, I guess not really though I did order a random lot of tropical seeds from California and it's been super fun watching them germinate next to my computer :D

    Those are simply adorable :)

    I think Clive will be getting a guinea pig stuffy soon, even if he's not really a stuffy kind of guy;)

    i looked at the site. They are pretty amazing. I cant believe she even has Agouti plush. How did she ever find that? The Agouti and white piggie reminds me of my favorite piggie ever, Mehitabel.

    So now I'm trying to decide if I need to order the chocolate chip rat... Or maybe even the mulberry mouse.

    I think the world would be a happier place if everyone received at least one of these plushies in the mail!

    Seriously, the whole experience was so cute. The box had little stamps as you opened it, and it was just such a good presentation with the product.

    SO CUTE!
