Follower Feature Friday: simply_hibiscus

Happy Friday, Folks!  It's time for another follower feature!  This week's follower is simply_hibiscus, who makes some of the cutest plushies this side of... well... anywhere.  A visit to her shop is like walking into a very eclectic and somewhat odd zoo.  You'll find all sorts of critters from owls and octopuses to dinosaurs and yetis, with a healthy dose of adorable monsters thrown in to the mix.  Here are some of my favorites...

Melvin 

Melvin has got to be the world's cutest yeti.  That hair... Those eyes... He may be the strong, silent type, but inside he's just begging to be cuddled.  And who wouldn't love to cuddle a yeti?

Lucy the Owl






















I love me some owls, and there seem to be plenty of them floating around the Etsyverse.  But Lucy here stands out from the crowd.  Lucy is an owl with attitude.  Or maybe... hootitude?  Whatever it is, she's got it.  And then some.  As the entry reads, "Checkered, round, gray, and small, she's the owl that has it all."  I couldn't have said it better myself!

Wub

















I don't know about you, but I didn't know monsters could be this cute.  In fact, this little guy - with his big, round eyes and somewhat uncertain expression - is so adorable I kind of feel bad for calling him a monster.  Perhaps "unidentified creature" would be better.  I'd hate to hurt his feelings.  He seems like kind of a sensitive little guy... 

Now, if you don't see anything in the shop that really tugs at your heartstrings, don't fret.  Simplyhibiscus takes custom orders!  And if you wanna give a little Wub to a someone special, you can have your order gift wrapped for just two bucks! 

So what are you waiting for?  Go pay simplyhibiscus a visit.  And let me know if you see any octopuses.
