Real mice creep me out.It's their tails that make my skin crawl.If it doesn't have fur on it's tail....I'd rather be in a room with a lion! However,this sweet little critter,well....I knew the minute I saw it Lilly would love it. I got the pattern here. http://motherrhythm.blogspot.com/2010/07/seriously-cute-mouse-tutorial.html
Then I found this at The G.W. Boutique.That's just a fancy name for Goodwill! This would be a great home for a mouse family.
Then, I felt a story coming on.You're only getting the teeny,tiniest version!
I got to work and made this sweet little family.The rug was cut from a felted sweater and glued to the inside of the lid.The wall art is vintage crocheted flowers.A mouse house!
Daisy and Violet are lonely, old spinster mouse sisters.
(Table and chairs from Dollar Tree. I just put my own touch on them.)
They just love to decorate with found treasures.
(A thimble bouquet.Straight pins and decorative sequins.)
The best part,Santa left a baby at their door! Now their home is complete and a little girl is thrilled with her gift.
