  5. Hello Elizabeth


    I love it all from the pattern on the china to the innocence of the mouse. No whiskers on humans, much more attractive in the animal kindgom

  23. See, I saw this as a drawing of a normal-sized cat in a giant tea cup. I suppose that's because I really, really love tea (and would love a giant tea cup).

    Thank you for popping over and visitng my blog! :)

  24. Yes of course, the animal type! (Of most things, in fact. Feet for instance. How cute are animal feet? Human feet? Not so much!) Super, super cute. I should get something out for this fine topic but I've been doing secret santa things and they are secret. Arrrgh! :)

  26. Oh, little Teddybear, do come out. There’s nobody here who would hurt you. Not even those who think you’re a mouse.

    1. Haha! You are funny and observant, U. I actually have worked a little more on him, since I decided he was missing his stripes. He is now a Tiny Tiger. Maybe I should post him?

  27. Most definitely! I'd MUCH rather rub noses with these type of whiskers. Less itchy and a tons cuter. Cheers!

  29. Saw this yesterday, ERS, with 44 comments or so. Stayed in my mind. The teacup with whiskers idea brought to mind a cracked shaving mug on the sauna windowsill from my childhood. Love how these juxtapositions poke windows in to memory, send me to places I love. Tiny perfect image. Lovely.

  30. So cute. I only find soggy tea leaves in my cup.

  31. He's cuter 'n a bug's ear and the color is very nice on this one, too, but it's not finished; you need to draw in the rest of the cup and saucer carnival ride.
