Mouse-sized World

I've been thinking about what Mouse's living quarters must look like in Parson's church.  I picture it similar to the scene in the children's book by Audrey and Don Wood entitled, The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear.

As a child, I loved the book series The Littles, by John Peterson.  I read each of those books over and over!  I also had a doll house.  I don't remember actually playing with the doll house, but what I loved to do was make my own furniture and accessories for it.  You know, like take a sticker and "frame" it for the artwork on the wall. Or use a toothpaste lid stuffed with a dab of play dough for a "vase" that a little twig could stick into. Or find a little box and a fabric scrap and fashion them into a bed.  You get the idea.  The illustrations in The Littles books inspired me, and I loved to think of what a miniature world would look like.  Nowadays there is Pinterest.  I browsed for awhile and came up with a few projects to share.  I'm pretty sure Mouse would love a few of these in his living quarters.  Aren't they adorable?  Which project looks fun to you?
