Marching mice



"We are the marching mice,
We march from Here to There,
We marches up and marches down,
We do not have a care!"




"We are the marching mice,
We do not give a fig,
For bears or geese or silly dogs,
Although we're not that big."





"We are the marching mice,
We marches all night long,
And when our tails begin to fail,
We sing this little song."



PS - many thanks to CUTEABLE , for giving the Mice Brigade a mention.

Goodness, Gretel,
three little beauties,
really really great looking mice!

I cannot imagine how many hours must have gotten into creating them. Congratulations!
May I make you a pot of tea to relax with now?

Love your little mouse army. Thank goodness they are craft and not real. Been there with real mice. It's not fun.

Wow Gretel, three little mouse dears they are! I love their wooden spoon shaped ears! Always such a delight to see your accomplished sculptural work :) xxx

We've had a real mouse in our attic recently . . . these are SO MUCH nicer!

Did you pen the tune as well?

Mary Beth said...

When I win the lottery, I'm going to send you an order for one of everything you make because I love them all!

Those mice are nice! Well, PG, they are much better than nice, but I couldn't stop my fingers for going for the easy rhyme.

Hoping that your creative, yet overworked fingers are getting a bit of a rest. Back outdoor for you ... please make another of your marvelous videos with music.

City dweller that I am, I so long for a bumpy cycle ride down some tiny lane with lush greenery on each side ... and then the fork in that road.

Amazing tuneful rodents, love all their pink bits.

jfidz said...

Fantastic work Gretel. Whimsical, cute little fellows but also very feisty by the sound of it.

Jessie Lilac said...

Adorable! It must have been tricky getting them all the same!x

Rowan said...

What a great post! Love the mice and their marching song.

Sarah Laurence said...

Cute, cute, cute!

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Their ears! I love their ears!
And their delicious little green feet!

acornmoon said...

I love those "mieces to pieces!"

Francie of The Scented Cottage said...

Now those mice I wouldn't mind having in my house at all ! Of course, Willie and Wy might have other ideas...

My word verification is "verypti" and that is what the mice are indeed LOL.

Ohhh, how sweet! You just wanna sing along with them!

OldBagNewTricks said...

They ARE the living end. If I wasn't before I am now entirely enamored of your felty creatures. You're Brilliant!

And thanks for stopping by to see my fishies and their new digs. Cleaning the pond is kind of a big fuss, but only once a year. And now I have a new little baby girl -- I can't say what possessed me... maybe I ought to have fashioned her from felt!

Oh my goodness! Your creations just get cuter and cuter. It's always a pleasure to stop by and see what you're up to.

OldBagNewTricks said...

Thank you so much for that link to the elderlky UK couple being evicted because of their chickens. I hadn't thought of a celebrity connection (you wouldn't believe who Grace used to babysit.) I've contacted a lawyer and we'll see if we can gathered lots of support. I would think when every few months another bit of our food supply is found to be contaminated, we'd all want our own source of veggies and eggs. Thanks so much again for the link.

Oh I really love them. You are very talented. They brightened my day. I am a fan of all your creations. Look forward to your next post.
Warm wishes

Morna said...

How adorable is this!

spinyurchin said...

Amazing. Perfect. Adorable. I don't know how you do it. You deserve many sunny days on a blanket relaxing after those three. (I bet they were a feisty bunch and wouldn't wait for their buttons to be put on!)

liZZie said...

We are marching mice
We wave our ickle flags
And when she isn't looking
We go through all her bags.
