posy + thimble

In November, I made the spur of the moment decision to purchase a pair of mice. I’ve always wanted mice…they’re so bookish and classic and cute, and now I have some! Two sisters, Posy (blond) and Thimble (gray.)

Would you like to meet them?


Does that elephant look frightened to you?

Thimby is shy and more difficult to photograph…
And they’re very literary. Of course.
Thanks to Birdie/Fairlight for the photo shoot!

    How sweet! It all reminds me so much of Cinderella and I love that they’re into books. Just as long as they don’t get TOO into them!

    Have you ever read “The Tale of Despereaux”? It’s a fun story about a mouse who loves books and goes off to save a human princess from a nasty rat (of the rodent species). You should definitely give it a try if you have time!

    OH, OH, OH!!!

    They are so precious! Oh my goodness! I love mice so much (and that is a terrible understatement). Though we haven’t had any in a long time, over the years, we’ve had 15 pet mice total (not all at the same time). I had a very special pet mouse once. Her name was Debbie… We were soulmates, hehe. Okay, I’m notorious for rambling about mice, so I shall stop after I say this: I am very happy to meet you, Posy and Thimble. :)
