Well, I did it! I stepped outside of my black cat, owl and bat box to try my hand at a mouse! After several nudges and a number of suggestions from my collector friends, I thought it was time to give mouse-making a try. I must admit, my first attempt at a pointy-nosed whimsical rodent occurred last winter, and I failed miserably. I was trying to make a teeny weeny mouse ornament, and it ended up as a pile of papier mache mush in my anxious hands! Luckily, I had more patience this time around, and I think "Jerry Juggler," my first official mouse, turned out quite swell. See for yourself by visiting his eBay Auction page. I will include a few teaser pics below, but there are lots more images along with descriptions once you visit Jerry's listing. He's up for bids for 7 Days this time, so keep that in mind. His auction ends on Sunday, July 10th at 10pm EST, so save the date. Good luck and many thanks to any and all of you who offer us a bid :)
* I think this photo really captures Jerry's flirtatious side!
* Another sweet little frolicking mouse is painted on his spherical base and depicts a whimsical juggling scene..... Cute as a mouse!
* The stage curtains are pulled to reveal this jovial scene, and they wrap all the way around this unique piece....
* A peek at the underside reveals that Jerry Juggler is indeed my first mouse! I'm hoping to create a few more mice in various forms before Halloween ~ mouse tails are crossed!
OH ~ and check out The Haunted World of Bumble Bindlegrim! Looks like my mouse has inspired him, and I'm in good company.... Take a peek at all the Halloween eye candy....
