Happy Fall Ya All Mouse

My "Happy Fall" Mouse is a new design for me...first time I have made a mouse that has his head looking up at you, instead of being shy & looking down.. A simple change...but never the less it took a few tries & a few mice later until I was happy with this look. I have another design similar to this one but with a tilted head & a longer nose...but that is for another day.

This wool felt mouse is hand-painted with chenille stem feet, glass bead eyes & a suede tail. He is holding a metal wand that reads Happy Fall. I have perched him on a comfy hand-dyed wool cushion which is attached to a paper-mache box...I have covered the box with vintage fabric look scrapbook paper.

I have placed inside the box a small collection of old buttons, a rusty star, sewing bobbin, pins & needles.
To complete the look I have lovingly aged the box & given it a nice old patina with the use of crackled paint & a good dose of walnut stain.

This piece is 7" inches tall from the top of the wand to the bottom of the box & is all done up in wonderful fall colors that will warm your heart.

The price for this wee fall mouse is $85.00 US plus $12.00 US for shipping to anywhere in the US or Canada.
All my wee critters are shipped by airmail with insurance.
This is not a toy & is for adult use only.
If you should have any questions regarding this piece please feel free to email me as I would love to hear from you.
This item will be listed on the TDIPT Mercantile site the evening of August 31st.
Please come by the Tdipt Mercantile for a visit as there will be a lot of wonderful art created by a very talented group of women.
Thanks for popping by & have a wee wonderful day!!!

It is so cute, love it. I have a tiny box like that, figured I would make something out of it. Maybe if I figure out a good felted animal, I can make a nice pin cushion for a christmas present.
