The admiral, mrs. croft and friends set out on a holiday camping adventure over the labor day weekend. They are, of course, glampers. The kind of mice who feel a chandelier, china, carpets and a proper bed are bare necessities. (PS – note on the photo – the fire is pretend- photoshopped in)
Do you know some very nice mice who love to camp?
The little tent is made from this free pattern with some adjustments. Print the pattern at 85% and cut out on the cut line. I did not sew it. It’s just one layer of fabric (a vintage feedsack I’ve been saving for just this sort of occasion). The edges are raw. It took about 5 minutes to make.
The mice are made from another free sewing pattern.
The diy for the little dishes is right here.
The wire bed diy is here and the mini chandelier is here. and some more mouse house details here.
Have your very nice mice had adventures? Let us know in the comments.
This summer, at Echo Lake, a troupe of birds attempted a theatrical presentation: the cautionary tale of a little bird in a red cloak and a bad wolf. Selected scenes:
And everyone lived happily ever after.
You are walking in the forest and come upon a tiny theater……..
To be continued.
A group of little birds attended Camp Wapameo on the shores of beautiful Echo Lake in Rhode Island (thanks bettyann) over the July 4th holiday. The weather was disappointing and I suffered unimaginable insults from insects ( and vice versa I suppose), got poison ivy, accidentally rolled in goose poop repeatedly and had a fabulous time. You can see some of the highlights below (click the pictures for a larger view). The campers are ( from left to right): rex, finn, minter, liney, ashley, jane, betsy, flora, and georgie.
