Charming Creativity...

In my wonderful world of blogging and following other creative souls I found Michelle Palmer and her super creative pen and ink drawings. She does the most detailed and amazing tiny birds and nests and lots of other cuties. However it is her tiny little mice that I fell in love with.
One morning I got up early and was enjoying my blog reading when I saw this adorable little pink baby dress with the strawberry eating mouse. If you follow Michelle and her art you know it gets purchased as quickly as she can list it in her etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/MichellePalmer?ref=seller_info
and therefore I had missed every previous mouse. I was determined I would not miss out on this little pink dress mouse. I ran upstairs for the plastic and whew! I didn't miss this one. I was so excited I was shaking.
Even Mr. C knew exactly what I bought when I said Michelle Palmer. He knew exactly where I would display my newly acquired treasure...on the line he made me in the laundry room. How cheery it is to do my chores with strawberry mouse watching over me.
Isn't this just the cutest?!! My patience paid off and now I have my very own adorable pen and ink drawing. Michelle is so well known and respected that people commission her work. Thank you Michelle for sharing your charming creativity.
I love my little strawberry mouse on the tiny pink dress. This is a true collectible.

  9. I love Michele's work. I almost ordered one of those sweet dresses for my grand daughter for when she gets older as a keepsake but didn't. Maybe someday. Yours is amazing and I love where you have it hanging! Just incredibly adorable!

  11. Hi,

    I have one of Micheles beautiful dresses as well. I bought the little honey bear called Lil Gem.
    My first grandaughter will be coming this November and I knew this is one item that I needed to get for her.

    I love how you have displayed the dress. Simply gorgeous!!

    Hugs,

    Susan
