Nosey and Chubby

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.

Thanks Steve!

Thanks Deborah!

Glad to see Nosey found a great home.
Although, unless my eyes deceive me it looks like Natty hanging out with Nosey...unless Chubby struck a new pose for the photo's of course; they are a bit mischievous after all!
Mine get up to all kinds of trouble all the time.

I have just interrogated him and he insists he is Chubby. Yikes! Rodent identity theft!
