We Do!! Squeak!! Handmade Needle Felted Mice Wedding Cake Toppers Bride & Groom Mouse

We're getting married in the morning! :D

Ding dong the bells are gonna chime!
I had great fun making these two little wedding cake topper mice. And until they've been sold, they're a lot of fun to have around. They're on our dresser and they now have lots of fans - when our friends come round, we can't seem to help singing 'We're getting married in the morning' in very high pitched mouse like voices. We all sound completely crazy, but I bet you'd do the same. Haha! :) We'll miss them when they go!

These two little mice are more in love and happier than any mice have ever been!
The little bride mouse is wearing a handmade antique lace veil, with a vintage pearl and pink rose tiara, and holding a bouquet of flowers. Her groom is wearing his best waistcoat with vintage pearl button.

Please note: The colour of the bride's flower and flower bouquet can be changed to match the colour scheme of your wedding. Just send me a message via my Etsy shop below, letting me know the colour you would like.

The groom measures approximately 6" tall. His bride is a little smaller, at about 5.5"
The width of both of them is approximately 4".

They are ready to ship, and to bring their love and happiness to your special wedding day.

Handmade with ethically produced, high quality British wool.

A new product line for Mrs Plop's Shoppe - Country Chic Hand Painted Hare Cushion With Ticking Fabric

Ok, I know it's not felting, but Mr Plop and I are very proud of our new product line. This is hand-painted by myself, not printed, so each one is completely unique and one of a kind.

When I finish the painting part, it's over to Mr Plop who does the sewing bit. Fab! because sewing really isn't my forte, but luckily Mr Plop is an expert! His ancestry is in the textile trade, his Grandparents owned a haberdashers shop and he was taught to sew when he was very young.  Oddly, my ancestors were in the textile trade too! I only found out recently that my ancestors on my Father's side were all in the trade in the North of England. It's a shame I didn't inherit their finesse with a sewing needle, but I guess my roots have shown up in a roundabout way with my needle felting.

If you would like to order one of these cushions, you can see the listing in my Etsy shop here: OOAK Hand Painted Hare Cushion by Mr and Mrs Plop

Miniature Felted Mouse, Miniature Painted Bird

This week I made another tiny needle felted harvest mouse who I named Maggie. I made her dress out of antique lace and I had some vintage 1920s sequins trim that I attached for her tiara.

Here is the reason she is named Maggie....

When harvest time is over, she has her own special harvest - She collects antique beads and lace, and makes dresses and tiaras out of them. She loves to sew, and she loves anything shiny. This is how she got the name Maggie, because she is like a little Magpie :)
She is for sale in my Etsy shop Maggie Harvest Mouse by Mrs Plop's Shoppe

Here is Maggie Mouse....

I've also been painting  - a lot. I haven't mentioned my painting on this blog, because here, I concentrate on needle felting. But I do have some of my paintings in my Etsy shop. Today I finished painting a miniature art canvas of a blue tit bird in acrylic. I LOVE painting!

Here is the blue tit miniature painting.....
