You can even say it glows…

Twiddles is a reindeer mouse.  Little is known about this rare breed of mice found only in a small patch of vegetation west of Melbourne.  Scientists are baffled why reindeer mice, usually looking like any other mice on any non-public holiday, suddenly sprout antlers and red glowing noses come mid-December.

With a diet of peppermint lollies, eggnog, and fruit cake, reindeer mice have a perpetual sugar high.  Pretty handy during that mad rush to prepare for the silly season.  Twiddles helped me, or tried to help me, decorate the tree. The trimming and fairy lights do bring out the natural red glow of his nose.

Twiddles has already left for the north pole (with my trimmings and fairy lights!) to join the annual sleigh ride and nibble on the sack of goodies before kids around the world receive their presents.  On Christmas eve, aside from the usual milk and cookies, please do leave a peppermint lolly for this little hitchhiker.

Merry Christmas everyone!

The Life in a Jar Bell Mice & Gnomes Adoption Agency: Strawberry Sam

See that teeny tiny link on the sidebar about “The Life in a Bell Jar Mice & Gnomes Adoption Agency“? It’s the only place where you can adopt a mouse or a gnome from the Bell Jar Village.  The Adoption Agency will be opening early next year.  I’m about to give you a taste of what’s to come.  It tastes like strawberries actually.

Meet Strawberry Sam. Born on December 3, 2011, this mouse likes picking fresh strawberries…from the fridge.

Strawberry Sam likes hot cocoa and marshmallows. Oh yeah.. he also likes long walks on the beach.  A true romantic.

A strawberry hat makes this mouse incognito in a bowl of strawberries, although his pink tail is a dead giveaway.

Coming soon to the Life in a Bell Jar Mice & Gnomes Adoption Agency.  Please adopt Strawberry Sam!  Fresh strawberries not included.
