So sweet it is and the little poinsettia tickles me...delicate and detailed. I really like creating with yoyos and the flower in the middle 'steals the show'. The little ornament is cute...love those big hats women once wore.
Her little note enclosed reads-
'MERRY CHRISTMAS! Use bale for pendant or ribbon as mini ornament.'
It's the sweetest JoAnne...thank you! I will treasure it for many years to come. Merry Christmas to you too!
A little Christmas memory to share today, Sunday, December 19, 2010 ~ One year at Christmas time when we were visiting my Mom she said excitedly to my children and I "My Christmas mouse had babies come see!"
I smiled because her Christmas mouse lived somewhere in the Christmas tree...a stuffed mouse doll wearing a red and white gingham dress with a lace apron...and a bonnet, very round about 8" tall and was made of fuzzy gray flannel material. When 'Grandma Jacky' took the grandchildren to the tree she said "You will have your own Christmas mouse this year." The kids thought looked and smiled real big...at the three new baby Christmas mice. Three Christmas mice (stuffed animals for my two sisters and I). They looked exactly like my Mom's Christmas mouse except they were much smaller, about 5" tall. Every year since then (for about the last 30 years) we place our Christmas mouse in the tree somewhere. The story is that Christmas mouse keeps an eye on everything, visits and watches Santa fill stockings and place presents under the tree. I think Mom dreamed up this fun & I love her for all the fun she gave year round.
Maybe it's time that our Christmas mouse has more babies.....
