There was a mouse, where?..........

Hello lovelies...
I have had such a warm response to my brooches. I am enjoying making these little mice and bird brooches so much, that I thought I would add the designs to a coin purse. I used plain cream cotton and covered each side in muslin....textural goodness :-) Then applied two little vignettes of mices. I think I watched too much Tom and Jerry when I was little.


I have popped the purse into my Etsy Shop, but I won't be sorry if it doesn't sell, 'cus it's a real sweetie...if I may be so bold!
Then we go onto birds, one below is Betsy bird and then, hopefully flying away soon, are Peter and Paul!
Am I sounding too cheesy here? I think there is every chance the answer maybe 'yes'!

Thanks for putting up with the cheesaliciousness content of this post!

Before I go, I wondered if you could spare a minute or two to visit a couple of newish blogs.

Firstly angela is a good friend of mine. She is a jewellery maker and has lots going on. We used to live next door to each other and share a Studio at one time.

Secondly you may already know 101birdtales if not, well worth a visit. Amelia's current post, may just be of help!

A touch of nostalgia here ..... produced by Fred Quimby and very apt for Thanksgiving.

Thank you all once again for your supportive comments and for stopping by. x

A little mouse with clogs on, well I declare going clip clippety clop onto a Hens teeth purse!

Where else would these little meeces rather be? I shouldn't think these will hang around your Etsy shop for long Viv, they are gorgeous.

I am off to light the fire and read the papers it is tipping it down outside and cold too,

Love Sarah x

Cheesy? I don't think so, but even if it was - they're mice! Of course there would be cheese around. Cute purses. xx

Lyn said...

The mice are so cute, they remind me of the mice in Bagpuss. I like the birdies too, you are so talented.
Love

The Tom and Jerry cartoon sure brought back memories. I use to watch them when I was a little girl and I'm 60 now!! They don't produce funny, endearing cartoons like this anymore.
