Each year on the blessed night of Christmas Eve, the mousers and their children make the long trip deep into the woods to The Great Tree.

Here all of the animals of the forest will congregate. The ground is a blanket of new fallen snow and the air is filled with the magic of sound as they sing their beautiful carols to honour The Child born that very night so long ago.

Up for your consideration is a five-piece Mouser gathering which includes a prim decorated tree complete with mini lights. All of the mice are made of aged osnaburg and are dressed in quilt shop quality fabrics. Their faces are needle-sculpted, eyes are black seed beads, ears of aged wool felt and whiskers of sisal. Their tails are rusty wire and they all have on spectacles made of rusty wire.

Pa Mouser is 7.5 inches tall to the top of his black wool felt hat. He wears a coat of black flannel and a scarf of red/black striped homespun.

Ma Mouser is 6.5 inches tall. She wears a coat of black flannel. Her coordinating red scarf and red/green striped skirt are made of homespun.

Lil' Tim is 5 inches tall. He wears a coat made of black flannel. His scarf is red homespun and he has black ear muffs to keep him toasty warm.

Tess is also 5 inches tall. She wears a black flannel jacket and coordinating red/tan mini-checked skirt and red scarf.

The tree is approximately 12 inches tall to the top of the rusty star.  It is adorned with rusty bells, homespun ties and mini-lights. I am also including the vintage glitter drape snow to aide you in creating this wynter-thyme gathering.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

O Carol how beautiful. I can't believe how much detail you put in those mice.

Oh, Carol, this is absolutely adorable. It must have been a huge hit, because the Mouser Family sold immediately and you have orders. Wow, they will surely brighten the homes that they go to.
