Look What We're Up To! 🤩
This is me over here trying to contain my excitement about these teapot mouse houses. We were inspired by the beautiful illustrations in the book Before We Sleep, in which animal friends are getting ready for the change in seasons. We've had so much fun imagining the perfect cozy homes to curl up in when it's coooooolllllld outside!
