Violet a 3-3/4" Needle Felted Pixie Mouse By Barby Anderson (SOLD)

I hand appliqued a very old antique piece of handmade butterfly bobbin lace onto the Pixie mouse dress.  Love that lace!

Helen Priem made the beautiful Pixie doll and bird.  Liz Stevens made the darling house.





It is known that the Pixies of the forest tend to many creatures in need.  One day a Pixie found a lace butterfly trapped in a cage....
The Pixie knew butterflies are always meant to live free......
She quickly set free the lace butterfly .... low and behold the butterfly morphed into a beautiful lace Pixie mouse before her eyes!
The Pixie mouse was so thrilled to be free and vowed to help care for the creatures in the forest.....
She brought them flowers in her tiny basket....
Warned them if danger was near....
Brought them bread crumbs from the delicious bread the Gnomes made...
And helped them build their wee nests!
In return the birds of the forest sang sweet songs to the Pixie mouse....
Offered to share their nest with the wee mouse....
And best of all.... they became great friends with the mouse....
One day the birds asked the little mouse to follow them.... and to her surprise they built a home for her!
It was beautiful!
And little butterflies floated over the flowers around her new home....
For it is also known that this Pixie mouse has a great love of butterflies!
It was truly an enchanting home....
And the birds chirped their sweet songs above her head....
It was a grand day, yes it was....
And as the little Pixie mouse went inside she could smell warm cheese biscuits that were baked just for her.  Welcome home little one, welcome home!
