Everyone should have a place of one’s own–a place to read, write and ponder. The mouse who lives in this house is especially creative. Look closely. Everything in the house, even the orange crate that it’s made of, was originally used for something else. Mice have to use the materials at hand (or paw, as the case may be), and this mouse house is a perfect example of recycling, repurposing and reusing cast-offs. It’s as comfy-cozy as they come, from the glowing coals in the fireplace to the abundance of fancy foods in the kitchen. Two mice babies snooze in a walnut shell near the wood stove and the exterior of the house features a Celtic mosaic chimney.
Created by one of Elite Repeat’s artists-in-residence, all the materials that went into making this lovely, little house were either found or donated to our shop in bits and pieces then carefully, imaginatively assembled into this fairy tale cottage. It’s on display this week in our storefront window. Do come by for a look! It will be available on Monday, Dec. 5, at 10 am for $125.
Pricing Update: As of May 1, 2012, this miniature mouse house is still available. It’s been marked down to $100. It’s waiting for you to take it home!
