miss mouse reads in her new sweater

miss mouse got her new sweater, and a scarf and bloomers, and it's a good thing because aside from a few beautiful spring- and even summer-like days, it is mostly still damp, chilly and cloudy here in seattle!
hoping for warmer weather, she is reading my beloved old The Bunny's Nutshell Library--four magical little books, created by the genius Robert Kraus, published by Harper & Row in 1965.


  1. I would love to be dressed in miss mouse's outfit. She looks sensational. Maggie...I was thinking of you yesterday when I was reading a book at the Children's Hospital called Ruthie's Teeny Tiny Lie.
    This little girl Ruthie loved everything teeny tiny. You'd love it. She is so YOU!

  2. She looks so sweet with the sweater :) I found you on my blog comments, thanks and you are welcome to feature Mr.Tadpole. I am now your new follower :D
