Somewhere along the banks of the River Thames lives a small group of Mice and Bunnies...they are brightly coloured and believe in food, tea parties and hot summer days. They are the Briesberry Mice and Carrotby Bunnies and wish to welcome you to their colourful world...

Festival Fun & Folics!

A week ago I left the Bunnies and Mice in charge of Nat's Nest - knowing that generally they are a very responsible bunch - and went off to Latitude Festival .

Its a music festival a little like Glastonbury - only a bit posher - and is near my original hometown in Sunny Suffolk. Along with all the fun and folics and blurry photos of Florence and the Machine, I actually managed to take some rather arty pictures too, which I thought would be good to share.

Sign Post Tree

Fashion by Central Saint Martins Graduates - this was actually really amazing - on a runway over the river!

Peace Tree

Brolly Tree

A rather spooky lamp in the middle of the woods....feeling a bit like Alice down the rabbit hole...

An NSDF production of Wind in the Willows - Toad at the top, he was fantastic.

The moon - reminds me of the Mighty Boosh!

And men with guitars -these were rather a lot of these!

Hmm...I did find some little festival mice at Latitude too - the rest of the nest are rather wary of their bohemian ways, but I'm sure they will fit right in.

Hope you enjoyed them!

After retuning from the festival, I was exhausted, but finally have recoved now after almost a week and am feeling ready for some creativity again :)

Wedding Bells Ring!

Today the Mice and Bunnies have been all excited, as the first ever Wedding took place in Carrotby ! The pirate mice supplied all the food (cheese and carrot cake mostly!) and were very nearly late as their boat hit a small whirlpool and almost capsized - but Captain Jack being the experienced pirate he is managed to navigate through it and thankfully they still arrived on time (the cheese being just the tiniest bit soggy). Here are the blushing Bride and Groom, available now in my Folksy Store...

And the rabbits of course decided they would like some Bunny - themed stationary for their wedding, and stealing the laptop, went undercover to browse through Folksy. They loved this fabulous card by Under the Stairs Studios...

And also found these rather wonderful Fortune Cookie Wedding Favours by 2 Green Monkeys

Isn't that a lovely idea?

Little bridesmaids and pageboy bunnies will be hopping their way into the nest shortly. And the mice want to get in on the wedding action too...

Nat's Nest blog will be moving shortly...please watch this space!
