Yes, More House Mouses...
Here we are on Monday morning of Christmas week. It is still dark outside and it is pouring rain. We are getting lots of rain and the ski resorts are getting lots of snow. Just the way it should be and we thank you Mother Nature!
I will try to NOT post any further photos this year of my ever expanding mouse collection. I do love each and every one I have. I enjoy clearing the Cherry Wood shelves in the Great Room to make way for Christmas themed mice. I think by this photo and the previous post you can see how Mr. C is overrun with the little cuties which he does not have any fondness for.
This is a lifetime of collecting and as you can see my tastes vary.
And through the years I have actually edited and passed along some of my mice. After all I don't want to seem greedy.
Here we have some interlopers of Angels and Santas. I do love them also. My Grandma made the stitched plastic canvas Angel which is second from the left. I really cherish this handmade Angel.
And these little cuties just joined me this year. They were sent by a very good friend who moved away and she hasn't forgotten my love of mice. Thank you dear.
Yesterday I was able to spend some precious time with my sister and we exchanged our Christmas gifts. We know one another so well and it is easy to please us with our thoughtful gifts. The best gift of all is spending quality time together.
No shopping for me this week unless I need something special at the local market. This will be a week to enjoy friends and small get-togethers. Family time will be via telephone this year.
I have managed to enjoy Christmas Calm so far and I see no reason why it can't continue. What is done is done and the rest is not critical. I am enjoying all the wonderful cards and letters that are arriving daily and I truly appreciate the time spent to write and mail them. Thank you everyone.
I have a lot of clean up and organizing to do in my studio. I am also gathering a truckload of donations for our local charities. There always seems to be far more supplies than I could ever possibly use so I like to share with others. Warm coats, gloves and umbrellas will be very welcomed by the shelters this rainy Winter. Be Kind To Others and your spirits will soar. Blessings to all...
