So, I just came back from a ski weekend.... cabin in the woods. Mice abound in the kitchen. They have a gizmo that makes noise that is supposed to keep them away, but instead we find mouse droppings on counters, in pots and pans, in cuttlery, all over every clean tea towel. Everyone is ticked off about it, but personally I think we can learn to share the cabin. So I made this card and hung it up above the stove for all future renters to consider...



The droppings glued to the bottom are real...
The outside is birch bark that I pulled off a dead tree.

The inside is watercolor and pen and ink.

Be careful, you can get sick from mouse droppings, although the card is cute.

I did wash my hands very thoroughly after handling.  Thanks for caring, Barbara. (-;

Lovely.   
I believe a tray of used kitty litter is supposed to deter mice. You don't actually need the kitty  Smiley

This is the cutest card...and such a good idea to leave it at the rental house. My girls and I would always leave friendship bracelets and extra floss for others when we vacation at retal homes.
