Lavender Mouse

For years I have had this delightful little pot in my studio.  It holds lavender and periodically I run my hands through the seeds just to enjoy the scent.

As you can see, my lavender pot has recently been invaded by a cheeky little mouse. Not only did she get into the pot, but she also sowed lavender all over the shelf.

What did I do?  Well of course I couldn't turn this darling over to the outdoors and all its dangers, so for now I've appointed her "Guardian of the Lavender".  I hope she takes her new position seriously!

  1. What a smart mouse! No better home than Lavender in a pot, and in the studio of a mouse lover. I just love your new friends, and I marvel at the way you add so much life and whimsy to them. Especially love the ears!

  2. :) What a tiny Guardian. "Though she be but little, she is fierce."

  3. I'm sure she will take her task seriously. She has lovely big eyes, to spot the slightest movement!

  4. I love the meerkat-style expression on her face as she pops up out of the pot. Not only has she got a safe space to hide in, the lavender scent will confuse any predators!

  5. Oh yes, she does. She is taking it VERY seriously after she found the taste of the lavender not quite to her liking! But you know how mouses are...they don't like to share so she will continue Sentry Duty which, of course, will make all the other mouses want to see all the more what is so valuable that she is guarding it 'round the clock!!
