HM #366 Sweet Mouse

 


A recycled pill bottle, beautiful florist paper that looks like marble, and reused twine.  Filled with little sweets, just perfect to tuck in someone's pocket.  The florist paper is from flowers we received for moving to our new house.

Recycled: pillbottle, florist paper, twine

Here you can see the florist paper, very subtle marble pattern:

After our move, this is what my craft space looks like, so I had to keep it simple with a little mouse I had previously coloured.  Hopefully I will be able to find everything soon.

Spots/Striped Hugs

 


At the Crafters Cafe the theme is Spots &/or Stripes - I did both, and added checks too, plus some sparkle.  Also snippets of ribbon, washi & stripey paper.  I don't usually use precoloured images, but I used this one to save time as I'm moving house.   Check out the design teams inspiration and enter here:  crafterscafechallenge

Each week, Lysha puts up a photographic challenge with prompts for us to look out for, then we share on Lysha's Saturday (my Sunday). Get inspired!

This week the prompts were: plant quarterly, inside out, split, green, your choice.

Last photos from the house we are leaving behind.  

Plant quarterly:  the peace plant, having a nice long drink.


Inside out:  


Split:  A mirror that splits images.  Not much use, but lots of fun.


Green:  This is commonly known as a mouse tail plant.  They look like mice with their heads buried in the leaves.  They eventually develop long thin tails, these one haven't got to that stage yet.  The tails start to grow as the  flowers turn over to look like little bums (am I allowed to say that here?).  A tiny woodland plant growing in our garden: I must remember to take some with me.


here is a botanical drawing I found on the net (with tails on)

Arisarum proboscideum (Mouse Tail Plant)



Your choice:   This past week we had to say goodbye to our chookies, We had to split them up (another split) and send them off to their new homes.  Spicy (in the foreground) went to Suz place and the others went to Jan's orchard.

Check out how others have interpreted the prompts, here:  ispy-70
