I have a fondness for mice; as kids we kept them as pets and I actually don’t mind it when Bronts brings them in (even though it is a faff to catch them. Oh, and one once hid in D’s buggy and I nearly deafened those in a five mile radius when I screeched in shock.)
When the lovely people at Museum Selection offered me something to review, I really was spoilt for choice; there’s loads for the discerning Christmas shopper. After perusing the items on offer, I chose this little mouse and conker ornament*. I thought he’d make a good paperweight on my desk and the description of him as a ‘tim’rous beastie’ sold it to me, as it’s one of my nicknames for D. Although, D is certainly not a timorous beastie, I do like the Burns poem!
He’s a lovely heavy little chap and he’s very lifelike in his details. I’m now eyeing up the curled fox sculpture to add to my ever-growing woodland animal collection…
If you’re looking for Christmas presents with a twist, do take a look!
