Leprechaun Mouse

A darlin' wee mousie who needs your help to watch out for those troublesome tell tale rainbows.
Available for sale at CobblestoneCreations.net

This wee one is soooooo richly detailed.

Much research has gone into what makes a leprechaun ~ and I do believe I have captured all the enchantment of those delightful creatures in this piece ~ at least that is what I have been told by the one who lives in my garden.

I do hope you'll take a momnet to visit his sale page and
read about all the details that went into making him.

Little Miss Muffet

from the Cobblestone Tails series

Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider and sat down beside her and frightened Miss Muffet away.

~ Sold ~

Hmmmm . . . she doesn't look frightened . . .  

Way to go Miss Muffet!

My latest commissioned piece

Inspired by the beloved character from Gone With The Wind  . . .

                 ~ Mammy ~

Had to share a few pics of my latest commissioned mouse.

Even got to do some carving to create the tiny rolling pin.


She was such fun to make!

In defense of the season

This morning from AP: "PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. – The groundhog has spoken. And it's bad news."

Bad news?!?!?!?!

Despite the negative aspects of the other three seasons (Spring's mud, Summer's mosquitoes and roaring lawnmowers, Fall's decaying garden cleanup), Winter is the only season that has a holiday stuck smack dab in the middle of it whose sole purpose is to say "Hang in there folks ~ it's half over!"

At what point do all the children who become giddy over fresh snow and windows covered in lacy frost, change into people who look at Winter as something they have to endure? Those who know me understand I am the opposite of this increasingly vocal majority who fill the airwaves and blogs with their longings for the first day of Spring. I, on the other hand, am one who anxiously anticipates Dec 21st and delights in glistening flakes blowing off the rooftops like magical fairies dancing off to grant wishes.

What if we designate August 2nd a holiday as well ~ which btw just happens to be National Ice Cream Sandwich Day.  (Who knew!)  We can all eat our deliciously cold ice cream sandwiches and dream of waking up to tree branches lined in white, skiing in the soft purple glow of snow at twilight, bustling about on nights illuminated by twinkling holiday lights and snuggling close to the one we love. Sound good to you? Now all we need is a name for that holiday . . . I shall give it some thought.

But for now ~ instead of succumbing to the despair being touted on the news today, I gently invite you to take a moment or two to appreciate the enchanting beauty of Winter.

And you better hurry ~ it's already half over!
