Our House is Infested! Well…sort of. :)

Before I get into this post, I wanted to thank all of you for your comments on my Sweet Pea Ladybug post.  I’m sorry I didn’t get to get back to everyone individually, but we were hosting KY’s Worship Conference at our church and we were in charge of putting it all together, and to say we were busy, is a major understatement! (We’re worship leaders at our church..in case you’re new to my blog)  So thank you all so much…we love our little ladybug! (and I love all of YOU!)

Now, on to the post! :0)

We have mice…..cute little mice cut out of paper that is! LOL

Carson and I had a great time putting all our little mice into place!
We found the template on Martha Stewart’s website..you can get them HERE if you’d like to cut some out as well.

The first time Sweet Pea came to visit after we put them all up, she just kept pointing and saying, “what’s that, what’s that”?!  It was so cute!

The template didn’t include the little mouse “holes”, so we cut them out on our own….after all, mice need a place to live too. :0)

We put the mice all the way up both flights of stairs and I do have to tell you they creeped me out the first couple of nights because I had forgotten about them, and I’d go up the dimly lit stairs going to bed, and they’d scare the bejeebers out of me!  It was funny! lol

Carson is really enjoying our little critters….I’m just glad they’re paper and not the kind that leave little “gifts” behind all over the house! :0)

Hope you’re having a nice Fall season!

My mom's power was out after the first heavy snow that we had so I brought her down to stay with me. I have a HUGE polar bear that I made for a project at school and had to move "Daisy" out of the bedroom where my mom was going to sleep. I just put her in the doorway across the hall from my bedroom and the first few nights/early mornings, she gave me a scare, too. Daisy--not my mom! Your mice are cute, especially this time of year.

I really love these! The only kind of mice I'd want in the house!

How cute! They would probably have freaked me out at night, too!!! What a creative idea!

Mice are the thing this season it seems...not only for Halloween but for Christmas as well. I've seen several blog posts that have decorated their stairs with these little creatures....but not me!!! It gives me the weebie jeebies just thinking about the possibility of them coming to life! **shiver** You can keep them at YOUR house. Thank you very much. ;)

Hi, I'm Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Too too cute! With that many mice you must be Cinderella. :)

Hi Missy, I just found your charming blog ~ yes I meant that to reflect your cute name too. I was looking around houzz when I had to click onto your kitchen. I'm so glad I found you. I love your blog and I'm your newest follower. I could have commented on every post I looked at, which was a lot, but it's late/early and I really have to hit the sack.

Love the cute mice.

I hope you'll stop by and visit my blog too.

Hugs...Tracy @ Cotton Pickin Cute

Not that I need any more mice around the house, this is very cute. I had seen the kits for sale at Michaels with the Halloween merchandise.
I love that you added your own spin to it.
