Merry Mouse

 A little mouse crept into our house on this last weekend before christmas.......her name is Merry.....and although she is quiet and rather timid she is a very merry and smiley mouse too.......
 .....as mice tend to do, she has been popping up here and there around the house, watching as we get on with our christmassy preparations, and as we come and go on errands and trips, she is always waiting when we return......
 ....she is a little white mouse with red skandi print ear linings and she has an embroidered felt top and a dala horse printed skirt......
 ......and a red bead for her nose (i looked in my bead box and there was exactly the one i wanted)....
 ......Merry Mouse is waiting beside the new musical biscuit tin, hoping it will soon be opened and there will be some treats for her to nibble......
 .......and just after the little mouse crept in this weekend, a wonderful parcel arrived........
 ...i was one of the lucky winners in the wonderful Bee Happy blog giveaway last week and the parcel contained this beautiful scarf......so soft, in subtle pretty colours, and so warm too...perfect to wear right now....thank you to Deb at Bee Happy for such a generous giveaway gift, I am really delighted.....do go and visit Bee Happy, and see her etsy shop, and  folksy shop too....
                           ......thank you to Bee Happy for knitting this lovely warm cosy scarf........
....now i think it's almost time for a mid morning cup of tea, and a little look at my list or i should say lists as i have quite a few of them now...the work/commission list, the christmas present list, the crafts i want to make list, the food list, the christmas to do list, and the every day to do list......yes, lots of them to keep track of...i might need a mince pie as well......
Thank you for dropping in to visit me today....i hope your lists are getting ticked off and all is peaceful where you are....enjoy the countdown and keep cosy....i'll be back soon xxxxxx

Oh Helen - she is lovely!

Just a perfect edition to the family and how fitting for Christmas -

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

What a dear little mouse - be careful she doesn't get at those mince pies before you do though you know what mice are like! Hope all your lists get ticked off and that you will have a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.

Merry Day to you Helen,
Speaking of Merry, oh how I love your Merry mouse. She is so sweet and I can hardly hear her. Not a peep, but you better watch out she may get a burst of mischief and eat all your treats!
My lists are endless also.........but let's enjoy, as we check them off. xoRobin❤

Hello, Helen
I've just popped in this morning, a little before 8 am, to get a dose of prettiness before fine tuning my list for the day. Merry is lovely, just the kind of mouse one appreciates scurrying about!

Merry mouse is gorgeous and I love her festive name too! The little stitched details are perfect and her clothese are adorable, Helen I just love her! I hope you are getting all your lists in order now and you can start relaxing and enjoying some Christmas crafty time! Sorry I've not popped in for a while - hoping to have a big blog catch up over the festive period, but from what I've glimpsed, your house looks beautifully decorated (though wouldn't have expected anything else from you! hehe) Have a lovely rest of the week, Jenny xx

I love the scarf and the mouse is so cute. You must spend a lot of time doing your crafts. Does it take very long to finish the mouse.?
