Mouses Houses by Maggie Rudy

A friend of mine from Ohio pointed this blog out to me the other day. Thank you Heather!

I am beyond thrilled to see this incredibly talented artist, Maggie Rudy's world of adorable mice, or as she prefers, "mouses".

Maggie lives in Portland, Oregon, which is my fair city but minutes away form my Oregon City home. I ordered her newest book The House that Mouse Built and am eager to peruse it joyfully and slowly.

Note the stove that mouse is warming himself by, for it is made of a poppy seed.

You must visit Mouses Houses and see what I am talking about! Enjoy!


  1. Absolutely adorable!!!
    I pulled awaybthe cobwebs at the very back of my memory, and remembered I had loved reading Stuart Little, .....most likely, the beginning of my love for little Mouses. Our wonderful elementary school librarian, mrs. Beasley, recognized a kindred spirit in me, for we both had the ever popular Mrs. beastly dolls...hers stayed in a cradle by her desk in the library....mine in my rocker at home...
    She introduced me to the "borrowers" as well. It nourished a love for miniatures...and the rest is history..;)
    Will have to visit this wonderful blog...thanks for sharing...

  2. They are adorable...what talent!
