Mouse Trap

For any of you who happen to follow me on Twitter, you're probably aware of the recent arrival of my new roommate - an invisible mouse. Earlier this week I ran into Belva (landlord) and while we were chatting in the hallway, I saw a mouse scurry across to a small crawl space on my side of the building. The next afternoon Pennie and I were snuggling and watching the most recent episode of Pretty Little Liars (no teasing!) when we heard a scratching noise coming from the kitchen. Pen bolted to investigate and I wasn't far behind. After searching for twenty-ish minutes, I gave up and let my kitty stand guard...


That night I spent far too long researching the most humane way to catch the little bugger. Well, here is what I ended up with:

Yep, that's a picnic basket, wood cutting board and toilet paper roll. I had hoped to entice the mouse with a glob of peanut butter, yet, after hours of waiting my basket is still empty.

One thing is for sure - there is NEVER a dull moment inside my apartment.

Have the loveliest of evenings!


  1. I literally laughed out loud about your little mouse trap! I just picture a little mouse falling from the tube. I hope it works for you!
    The bright yellow wedges really make this outfit, I always love little pops of color.

  2. Such great wedges!! Pretty Little Liars is one of my faves...such drama!!!

  3. Thanks, Mackenzie! Just for the record...I have still not caught the mouse.

  4. Such a great story & little contraption of yours! Too funny.. & I love those wedges. super cute!
