Bestest Christmas Gift Ideas No.2 – Maileg Mice in matchboxes (but they’re all mine, mine, mine)

I just can’t tell you how sweet these Maileg Mice are. Sweet, charming, traditionally quirky and SO pretty you simply have to smile.

Armstrong Ward is one of my favourite take-five-minutes stores, with too many yum things to tell you about here. But I just couldn’t resist these adorable Maileg mice when I spotted them, and felt a Bestest Gift Idea whoosh over me when he arrived in the post.maileg mouse in matchbox

They totally live up to their picture – the mouse is soft and sweet, the bedding is soft and snuggable – and I want to climb into his box with him. Bear adores hers (*whispers* Mummys quite keen on her starting a  collection…ssshhh)

Do be sure to take your time and wander around Armstrong Ward lifestyle while you’re there – I’m very confident you’ll find at least one ‘Oooh’, and one sudden gasping stab of longing within its pages.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
