I Wanted a Hippopotamus for Christmas.....

........but I got something much better. This here is my favorite Christmas dress. It was decided that for the evening I was channeling Miss Yvonne.
Being silly in front of the Christmas tree!!
This dress was hand made for me by Mr. Tiny of Mr. Tiny's Southside Market, and of the Wacky Tacky blog. The top is made of an old table cloth that was beyond repair, and thrifted green fabric makes up the skirt. The shoes were thrifted long ago.

What a nice guitar, to bad it doesn't belong to me!!
But why should I covet someone else's lovely instrument when for Christmas I got a MOUSEKULELE!!!


To be quite honest I was not hip to the Mousekulele until I saw one in my friends studio, and thought it was the neatest. I have a cheap ukulele that I taught myself to play on, but this is much more than just a regular old ukulele this is a Mousekulele. This ukulele was produced by Oscar Schmidt, but the graphics which make it super awesome were created by my friend's Kevin and Jody! I am not going to lie, I am a crier. When they gave it to me in front of a room full of people I started crying, I was beside myself. Go ahead laugh at me, but at the end of the day I am crying with a beautiful ukulele in hand.

I am so grateful for my new Mousekulele!! It is way easier to care for than a hippopatomus.

And I leave you with a little jingle I was messing around with this evening with my new Mousekulele.

  2. Lovely song, great dress! Just because one receives a far superior ukulele to the ukulele that one already has does not mean that one should bad mouth the lesser ukulele on which one learned to play ukulele in the first place. In other words, don't look a ukulele gift horse in the mouth. Did I mention that your dress is neat?!
