Little critters and Hawley's Corners.

"Good (early) Morning, little brown bunny."

The little critters and birds share the feeders well here.
red squirrel, bunny & mourning dove

I had the job of cleaning up all the empty shells at the foot of the maple today.
You'd think they'd be a little less messy for all the food I give them.

Home-made suet. They love it.

Waiting for Santa.

Even the shy squirrels at the back get some seed.

Hawley's Corners.
This is one of my favorite little shops that is only minutes from the mouse-house.
And it is a fun place at Christmas time.

There are four rooms in this beautiful Victorian home packed with something for everyone.
You can't leave without a trinket to pop in a stocking.
I bought a few gifts and came home with a vintage cat for the mouse-house tree. :)
Let's call him Frank
(ol' blue eyes)
As bright as the moon on a cold winter's night.

Hope you are all knee-deep in snow and enjoying the Christmas season.

hugs, Deb
