Crystal Mouse

Late one evening when the moon was dancing high above with the stars and the crickets were just beginning to chirp, I spotted this rhinestone creature standing guard just inside the door of a ribbon shop near Sloane Square. He's delightful, but who the heck would spend time making a crystal mouse?

Just coming back from being ill with pneumonia. LOVE the mouse! Also caught up with the rest of your posts. My, you've been busy haven't you? Some great things you posted about ... that's why I like coming here. You tend to show the most unusual things we don't see everyday. I love that about you! Thanks for always being a share all sort. xxoo

Yes, I think the mouse is wearing a pink rose tutu. Also guarding the door was a black and white stuffed bull terrier in a crown fit for the Queen. The shop is a weird and wonderful place, but frankly I have no idea how they make money. They are fabulous, but seem to sell twigs and bits of flowers and a few earrings and the odd crystal mouse. If I ever find out, I will let you all know. Maybe I should try to get an interview. That would be so interesting!
