Eeeek! A Mouse in the House; decorated shelf

I got up this morning and found a mouse in the kitchen...and he is eating the tarts!




And they are eating the cake!




How on earth are they getting in? Oh, my.




This is totally out of control...




I will have to call in some help!



(This is my beautiful Mozart who really wouldn't know what to do with a mouse.)


I stole the idea for the mice blatantly, and without shame from my daughter who used this idea so charmingly in her post: A Halloween Corner Cabinet. If you would like to see her post and download the link for the mice pattern go to: http://loveandlifeatleadora.blogspot.com/.

Tip - in order to make the mice silhouettes stand upright I hot glued a one inch cube of floral foam to the back of each mouse.

Isn't decorating for Halloween fun!

  1. Love it! Love it! I was wondering how you got the mice to stand up. Very clever! Mozart looks quite ferocious!

  2. Ha, what a great display. I will remember this for my next cheese platter. I will label each mouse with the type of cheese he is next to. Thanks.

  3. you make the holidays so much fun! i can't believe i don't decorate anymore.
    i'm hosting "Bunco Babes" in November... perhaps you can keep a look out for something cute to put at each table setting? btw - we aren't playing bunco (the dice game) we are bringing our decoration "cast-offs" and exchanging them... whatever is left i'll donate to the women's shelter.

  7. Oh god, I don´t think I can be friendly with them... I live in the country side and mice are something difficult to control here... so I don´t want to see them ever!!

  9. A find tribute to a very handsome Mozart! He is the ever watchful gentle giant that makes his presence known with his strong silence and requests for special treats. Love him

    And your mice are just too cute! Wish I had time for a bit more decorating but closing up the garden is a full-time job...
