    I think it looks like a string of little mousies. :) Round butts, pointy noses and big ears. :) I love this and of course, the workmanship is excellent!!

    I don’t know what it is with my pieces but this is the second one I have made that some of you see things in them that I totally didn’t think of while making it.Well I’m happy to be a designer that thinks outside of the box:)
