A visitor came calling at Cranberry Cottage.....


I was watching Jos saw some wood for a project in the cottage when I realized straight across from me, this cute mouse was also watching Jos too!


"Once upon a time there was a woodmouse, and her name was Mrs. Tittlemouse.
She lived in a bank under a hedge.
Such a funny house! There were yards and yards of sandy passages, leading to store-rooms and nut cellars and seed cellars, all amongst the roots of the hedge."


“Tiddly, widdly, widdly! Your very good health, Mrs. Tittlemouse!”

Quotes from The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse by Beatrix Potter

Have a great weekend!

  1. that mouse is telling you that you do not need a cat. I will be your pet it says. That picture could win a contest. You should write a kids story and include your very own little mouse. I know a perfect name for her, Matilda.
    Your other name. lol
    Love you, Mom
