'Tis Easter time


'Tis Eastertime and whilst the bunnies are scampering across the country side delivering oodles of chocolate treats; in my humble abode the itty bitty 'meeces' have decided to come out and play.

Whilst all the critters are away, the meeces have scuttled out of their hidey holes to have a tea party atop a table dressed with a pretty, crochet tablecloth.



There's Rufus playing peek-a-boo inside the teapot!


Oh he's a cheeky little mouse!


Sweet, sweet Lobelia dressed in her Sunday best, is stirring the cream. Oh do be careful, Lobelia, we wouldn't want the cream to curdle!


There's George and Matilda seesawing on a teaspoon. Weeeeeee.......'tis such fun teetering on a teaspoon.





There's Bridget and Seamus twirling round and round in pretty teacups. Bridget is clapping her tiny hands for joy. Don't get dizzy now!







There's Walter clambering up a pile of sugar cubes. Oops....be careful Walter, don't topple over.


The cute li'l meeces are having the funnest of times, smiling and giggling as they party to the melodic tune of Tea for Two.


Looks as if the itty bitty meeces have enjoyed the most tea-lightful time! You had better stop those shenanigans now and scurry away.....it won't be long till those rascally bunnies return. Perhaps there will be some leftover, chocolate goodies for you.



This sweet, sweet musical piece was a gift from my husband many years ago. It is an ENESCO musical piece, which when switched on, the mice stir the cream, pop up and down in the teapot, seasaw up and down on a teaspoon and twirl round and round in tea cups; whilst the tune Tea for Two, mellifluously sweetens the quietness. It is very sweet.


 This Easter time may you experience a sweet renewal
of faith, hope and joy.
Wishing you all a safe, happy and blessed Easter.

  1. Thank you for the kind wishes. I so enjoyed your post today. I loved all the little mice and seeing what they are getting into. What a sweet gift from your husband. I would love to sit down to a cup of tea and join them. And I am sure that you have added some of the excitement around the mice with your talent of adding all those special touches.
