Lovely Finds: Maileg

“If you can dream it, you can do it.

Always remember that this whole thing

was started with a dream and a mouse.”

                                                ~Walt Disney

Just a dream and a mouse!

Under the tree this year were adorable

mice (and matchboxes!) designed in Denmark

by Maileg offered by an online shop

of which I’m a huge fan:

Splendid Willow Avenue.

No, not for my kids. For me, for corn’s sake!

I adore the quality and the future heirloomliciousness

of these mice and their tiny accessories!

Thank you, thank you, for introducing

so many of us to such Scandinavian splendor, Monika!

I will be collecting more Maileg

mice, matchboxes, and even…

blue wooden pram

a wooden pram!

Shut my mouth.

Are your pants totally charmed off too?

Peace to you right where you are.

    This is so cute and so well represented. I would like to live in this mouse world for a time! 🙂

    Yes. Yes. Yes. I would love my house infested if it is these mice we are talking about. They are stinking cute.

    So cute Mich. I am getting that classic "get them" itch.

    they really are all that.

    my little sis got me the big sis mouse and the angel one for christmas, and my inlaws surprised me with the newborn twins!

    my sons think i'm a nut.

    oh for cute! this post is so nostalgic and inspiring. love the photo of little mousy in the aqua and red stroller – instant happy. : )

    A nut you are not. Just a most wonderful friend, mother, blogger, stylist/photographer, writer and artist.

    I am sitting at Starbuck's right now and almost started to cry when I popped over to say Happy New Week to you and saw my little friends featured. What an unexpected treat! I know that they found a fantastic new home and I do not need to worry about them! (:

    Crazy that I never connected the dots between you family members and these mouse box orders. Will need to go back and see if there were any messages.

    Love to you and Happy New Week!

    You are the best.

    Oh my gosh these could not get any cuter!!! I love them so and I can see why they have made a home with you. 🙂

    I saw these and fell in love with their charm too!! When I read your title, Mouse therapy, I thought maybe you were spending some time on the computer, just moving the mouse here and there, too funny. I like your little mouse therapy much better than a computer mouse! Happy monday,

    Hi Michele!

    My friend Emma sells these little mice! All my friends were buying them at Christmas for their little ones and I was sorry later that I didn't buy one!

    So cute!
    Thanks for sharing. Your
    photography is stunnnnning.
