No, not live ones (ugh!!) but cute ones you can buy.
We have Wrendale Mugs. These have always been a favourite and there are several versions, including a larger mug for an extra shot of hot chocolate.
We also have Cheese Knives with Wooden Mice Handles, that would make a nice hostess gift. Placing these knives next to a block of cheddar cheese would make the cheese look interesting. Who wouldn’t want to cut the cheese (play with the cheese) just so you could use one of these knives?
We have Greeting Cards with happy little mice. And while we are discussing rodents, we even have a squirrel card.
We have Mice Card Holders, to let quests know the names of the cheeses on the table. Or you could subtly sneak one near someone’s breakfast dish to remind them about the job that needs doing.
Finally we have Saxon Chocolate Mice. Milk, Dark, White, your choice.
I want to find one of these in my Friday leftover lunch. It would make me forget the limp carrots, questionable tuna salad and bruised apple that I have to eat first.
See you at Scoop N’ Weigh, the Candy Store for Grownups!
P.S. Speaking of Wrendale, the Christmas display is out. I know I am breaking rules about nothing Christmas before November 1, but there are more cute animals than cute Christmas animals and I didn’t want anyone to feel left out, so out they all went. Besides if you have to choose, you need to see all the choices, rather than having more sprung on you at a later date.
There are new things that match the mugs – bowls and appetizer plates.
The bowls and plates actually come in set of four. But being a single person household, (Gov’t of Canada’s label, I prefer to think of myself as exercising an option to hog the bed) I only want one or two. And I think I am not the only person that does not want a set of four. So we open up the packages and sell the bowls and plates as singles.
Besides, what if you don’t want a variety, or only want owls or squirrels?
P.P.S. There are other accessories like coasters, place mats and tea towels. Again you can buy one or several and go with a theme.
P.P.P.S. Finally I couldn’t resist these cake stands. They are sort of Christmasy, but really red berries can be used all year long.
P.P.P.P.S. We were talking about animals, we also have these Dog Dishes They are heavy ceramic and, just like dogs, in two sizes – large and small.
P.P.P.P.P.P.S. Happy Halloween, I thought you might get a laugh out of this Halloween costume. I definitely had to give the picture a second look.
