The House of Mouse

I was originally going to post this sellers work on my Etsy Monday
But the more I looked at their items I decided I couldn't pick just one item
The House of Mouse create themed little mice, and they're so good!
I love the Edward Scissorhands, Gizmo, Freddy Krueger and The Beatles ones the best!
Check out the shop and the flickr
I guarantee you'll fall in love!
These are the cutest mice I've ever seen!

A little Fox visits

I don't know if I've mentioned it before
But we live in the basement and our windows overlook the neighbours garden
Outside our bedroom is a little wall that Sisco sits on when she wants to be let in
Paul went to let her in today and spotted this little guy at the bottom of the garden

I zoomed in a lot
Sisco was sitting there looking at him (or maybe her)
She wasn't scared at all and the fox looked at Sisco and just looked away
He just slept there and after about 10 minutes, ran after a bird
I know foxes have a bad reputation, but I think they're beautiful

Little cutie

Sassy Sisco

I just realised, I haven't posted a Sisco photo in a while!

It's been very humid and it knocks poor baby out
She gets a bit cranky when it's hot, even a brand new cardboard box didn't amuse her today
I got my 1st birthday present today, 5 days early!
I gave it to Paul quick to hide
I want to open it
we'll see!
Also I've decided to do a little giveaway on my blog for my birthday
I'll be posting that next week!

My Sticker Collection

Before I went to Wales I wrote about my sticker collection
When I got back to Wales I found some of them
Unfortunately I couldn't find the Lisa Frank sticker sheets, but I found two of the books!
These books are about 17 years old!

Thankfully, my handwriting has improved!

I LOVED Trolls!

Remember the little stickers at the top?
You used to put them on as fake earrings, and you thought you were so cool?

I remember the ice cream stickers were scratch and sniff vanilla scented

Ahhh, good old Lisa Frank!

Whenever we went to Florida I would collect lots of 25c and spend them on these fake tattoos!
I actually wore them and thought I looked pretty tough!

I also found this embroidery I did for a competition in my 1st year of high school!
I came 2nd place!

This is my first cat I had, Kissy
She was a stray and I remember being about 6 and playing outside the front of my house
I heard lots of hissing and found Kissy under a car, backed up against a wall
She was being hit and hissed at by a few other cats and was so scared
I lay down and slid my legs under the car and tried to push them out of the way
Kissy eventually came out and followed me home
Mum tried to find out where she was from
She asked around, put up notices, went to the vets and people told us she was a stray that hung around
So we kept her!
She was one of the most loving cats I have known
We said she was like a little Koala because if you picked her up she would cling to you and not want to be put down
Whenever I had pens or pencils out, she would come over and pick one up with her paw
And every night she slept on my chest or shared my pillow with me
She was a real unique little girl

Next time I go to Wales I'm definitely going to bring back more photos to post of Kissy
It was really nice going through things from my childhood, I'm glad I was a bit of a hoarder!
