Is There a Mouse in the House?
It has been told that I collect mice. Since I was a little girl. I even named our little house we lived in "The Mouse House". I love tiny and small and cute and mice are just that to me. So...when decorating for Christmas all the special Christmas mice come out for Joyful Sentimental Times.
Each one has special meaning for me. For Mr. C they are just...well let's not tell that!
There were times when I had little money for living expenses however I managed to acquire a new mouse each year during after Christmas Sales.
Through the years I have quite a collection. Each one unique and each one makes me smile with happiness.
And then there are the very special mice that have been gifted to me from family and special friends. This Mr. and Mrs. Santa Mice are extra special because a dear blogging friend whom I was lucky enough to meet in person actually created these for me. You might know her and her blog. She is Jillayne of A Fine Seam and her blog is Quilting Fabrications. I adore her and her magic she creates with fabrics and thread and needle. Thank you Jillayne. I am eternally grateful.
I don't usually post gifts I receive from blogging friends. I feel it may be uncomfortable for others who either don't get a gift or may not be able to give a gift. I am beyond thankful for each and every card and gift my blog friends share with me. I hope you know how special you are! Thank You.
As the days are checking off I am accomplishing enough to not get all stressed out this year. I hope you are able to enjoy this wonderful time of celebrations and merriment. I realize it is not easy for some. Mr. C is in this group and I try to respect his feelings. The other day he requested home baked cookies with icing and sprinkles. I was so surprised and felt badly because that is not my area. So this weekend it is my task to shop for supplies and then hopefully bake and decorate cookies for him. After all it is such a simple request from such a caring and loving man who is living with hundreds of Mouses in his House. Let us all keep the true meaning of Christmas and enJOY this magical time...
