Eek mouse!


I have become the woman that stands on a chair at the hint of a mouse or in other words I have become my mother !

The dry weather has seen an increase in the dirty rotten things and I am becoming a bit obsessed with them .

These little fabric ones that I'm making for the Mothers Day stall at school are the only ones I want to see in my kitchen and even these are starting to creep me out a bit .

Oh don't talk to me about mice.
We have a Houdini mouse...Just can't catch the little bugger!
But I actually like the type your making...
I have three little felt mice I think are so cute!

How cute are they. Love fabric mice - not the real thing however!They are sure to be good sellers.

Joy said...

Can't help it ... I think mice are cute!! We had quite a few as pets when the kids were little. Of course, I prefer the caged variety to the wild ones any day ;o).
Your little mice are adorable ... probably the safest kind to have around!!!

Clare,
Love your mice,how cute are they.Toatally understand how you feel about them.When I was growing up i remember the house being over-run with them.When mum went to light the oven for the roast about a dozen of them scattered in all directions.Yuck,yuck,yuck.Barb

Eileen said...

Those are very cute mice.. but I have to agree with you.. if they would be in real mouse color.. they would look a bit too real!

I'm hoping you are enjoying some nicer cool fall weather.. we're looking forward to spring as you know. :-)

Those are so cute.....and you are right, don't want to see a mouse or anything resembling that in my kitchen.

Kylie said...

Those mice are the cutest - definitly nicer than the field variety that have taken up residence in my rock feature and garage!

Thanks for your comment on my blog - sending you an email now!

The mice are too cute. I did have a giggle as your description of your dislike of the real thing reminds me of my own mother.

Now I love those mice Clare! I hate the ones that are finding their way into my house at the moment....gee they do make a mess! :(

Kerryanne English said...

Oh no... they are too cute to be creepy.

Maybe you need a cat to help with the problem?

Mice are certainly popular at the moment. I prefer yours and my cloth ones over the real ones taking up residence in my garage however!
