First up the Mice. They come from Amsterdam! I was over there for New Years with a good friends of mine, and one of the days we were there we went for a bit of a wonder & stumbled on an interesting shop (pictured). I found the mice earrings & they had to come with me :)
The cheese earrings were another recent etsy purchase. They are my second purchase from Monica (owner of etsy shop Mother May I & My Little Lunch Box). I seem to have a thing for food earrings & these cheese earrings are nothing short of awesome! (You may remember my first purchase from Monica.. the Severed Finger Earrings!)
When it came to photogging these earrings for my collection I had to combine the two! I had one perfect idea in mind but had a bit of trouble sourcing a new wooden mousetrap (all the others I found were those plastic ones.)
I knew my parents had a few, so when I visited last I found one & took a few photos. (Sorry Mum! I know you said it was gross & not to use it because it was used for real mice - but I couldn't find any others & I sterilized the earrings afterwards!)
Earring Trivia: I like the word 'Cheese' more than I like Cheese & can say it in a few different languages.
P.S here is the alternate ending from that photo shoot..
