Who's Hiding In That Pickle Jar?


My collection of vintage baby shoes is sprinkled about the house
 and I stash the rest in this huge pickle jar.
 After seeing Manon's post featuring the cutest little red shoes...
I decided I needed this tiny red pair for a Christmas display...
 ...so I dumped the jar out on the table.


Wait!
 Do you see what I see?


Look at this charming little fellow nestled in that old shoe!


Where did he come from?
hmmm....I have no idea....


OK, so I told a tall tale....(tail?)
:)
My girlfriend Paula gave me this cute little Christmas mouse in the old Victorian shoe when I visited last week.
Thank you Paula!


He is a Cathy Pendleton original creation.
Too cute!

Just one more sleep till Santa comes!
Merry Christmas friends!
:)
