Jay 3-3/4" Needle Felted Mouse By Barby Anderson (SOLD)


Helen Priem made the stunning Blue Jay named "Blue"!



Legend has it that there was a wee mouse that lived in the beautiful forest of "Rodanta"....
The little mouse was given the name "Jay".....
One day the most stunning bird flew down to greet "Jay" ......
He had the most beautiful feathers that "Jay" had even seen.....
"Jay" called his new friend "Blue" because the colors of his feathers were so lovely....
On a sunny morning "Jay" asked dear "Blue" what it was like soaring over the forest trees....
And "Blue" lifted the wee mouse onto his back and soared up, up, up...... and "Jay" squeaked with excitment!
Gently the beautiful blue bird floated down to the forest floor.... what a ride the little mouse had!
As a harvest mouse from the well known "Harvest Clan" he knew how to forage for many seeds, nuts.... and even corn from the fields beyond the forest...
His new friend "Blue" loved corn....
The gorgeous bird flew "Jay" home to his soft nest and the wee mouse fed him some corn from his acorn cap...
One kernel at a time....
What a strange sight to see such a friendship when they come from different ends of the forest!
However, a great friendship developed and they loved being in nature with all the forest creatures...
"Jay" even found a peanut that a squirrel buried....
Many times you would see the two sharing a peanut....
Because that is what friends do!
And when their tummies were full....
The beautiful blue bird lifted the wee mouse to lay him down in the soft nest....
He gently tucked in the mouse.....
And was glad to give up his nest to such a dear friend....
And so "Blue" and "Jay" were seen through the forest often.... and to this day look to the sky and you may see a Blue Jay!

How sweet was Blue giving little Jay a ride. I am so pleased he shared his corn and nuts with him. Forrests are such frienly places.
