Happy Wednesday, Friends! I'm sure you've noticed my recent affection for crafting with miniatures. There's just something a little magical about creating a miniature moment, especially during the holidays!
My latest miniature endeavor all started with this little mouse at the door. A door evokes all kinds of possibilities, but it was the whimsical mouse that first caught my eye. I immediately thought of Ginger Grand because we'd watched Stuart Little when he came to visit this summer. I fondly remembered his delight with the tiny character whose appearance was very similar to this t-shirt clad mouse. Surely this must be a Texas mouse sporting a t-shirt in December!
The door already featured charming details, but I used Mod Podge and DecoArt Glamour Dust to Christmas-fy it. I dabbed on Mod Podge with a make-up sponge and then sprinkled on the Glamour Dust. I've probably said it before, but I love that stuff. I've been using the same bottle for a year and there's still some left!
Next, the door was decked with a mini bottle brush wreath!
Want your own mouse door? I have just a few available!
Remember this little find? I knew when I saw it, I wanted to load it with a tiny bottle brush tree.
When I scored this vintage platter at a yard sale, I never dreamed how many ways I would be able to use it. Since repurposing it as a chalkboard, it was displayed on my mantel last spring, part of my fall tablescape, and now would become part of this Christmas vignette.
Ever since I saw the mouse, I was reminded of the holiday classic, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. The original version assures us not a creature was stirring...not even a mouse. In my whimsical miniature, obviously the mouse was stirring as he decorated his home for Christmas ;)
