I love meeses to pieces !

Do you remember Pixie and Dixie? It seems to me the cat chasing them would always say "I love meeses to pieces!"





I agree, unless they are live meeses in my house. When I was very young, a new Mom, we lived in an old brick house that had terrible mouse problem.... We did not want to use poison, so we trapped and trapped. By Christmas, we thought we had trapped every last one..... One night, while gazing at our freshly cut and decorated Christmas tree I glimpsed an ornament move. A MOUSE had climbed the tree, crawled out on a branch and was having a little snack of popcorn that I has so carefully strung!! More traps, and that was one mouse that did not see the new year.



____________________________


This year there are new mice on the tree, and I have been having a lot of fun making them.





Wool sweaters scraps again. It's no wonder I can't throw anything out, I used the smallest bits for these mice.If you love meeses to pieces, leave a comment, just a few words is okay, I will be having a drawing on Christmas Eve to give away a Christmas mouse to hang on YOUR tree, or whatever.. They all have little loops on their backs to insert an ornament hanger. Don't give this mouse to your cat, there are tiny beads and a jingle bell that would be sure to cause indigestion. SO comment for your chance to win! ____________________

Post Script: Yes, that is a purple mouse! I like him.

I love them!!! You are soooo good!
When we moved into our house we had mice too. One walked right through the living room while we watched TV one night. They are sassy little things. Merry Christmas! Sue Wilson

My first pet was a little white mouse. My mother, poor woman, made me keep it in my room. I still care for mice and feel that they need to live too. What a sentimentalist, no?

I was more of a Mighty Mouse sort of gal.

Your meeces are adorable. Much cuter than the real deal which I dread.

Didn't our Nana make mice similar to those? I seem to remember loving to play with some made out of a different foam-like fabric...

Love your little mice. You are so clever!

I could enjoy the snow if I didn't have to drive in it with all the rush hour idiots! I need a brandy in that hot chocolate when I get home to shovel!!!

A very Merry Christmas to you and your family.
