I just received a bronze mouse named Nosey courtesy of my friend Steve Worthington, animal sculptor extraordinaire. Steve ran a contest over Christmas on his blog to win a mouse and I won! Steve is a fantastic artist. His wicked British sense of humor and childhood fascination with all kinds of critters have combined to create a wonderful bronze menagerie. If you haven't yet, please check out his blog and website.
Nosey arrived yesterday afternoon and immediately set out to explore. Click to see a closer view!
Nosey quickly reintroduced himself to his buddy Chubby.
He then decided to explore the library. Note Lonesome Dove and Emily Dickinson on the same shelf with Emerson. I will have to speak to the the librarian about that!
Exhausted, he and Chubby decided it was time for a snack.
