Meet Mauer

Every city girl has to have some wildlife in the house.... it is obvious Mrs. Whiskers does not qualify as wildlife, so we got a MOOSE.

I wish I could say that we have a real moose hanging out in our yard, but Mauer lives inside and came from the Land of the Midnight Sun... IKEA...  When we first "adopted" Mauer he had a little different look to him.  He was red and unfinished wood, and although still cute, he just didn't fit in here in GR.  So with the loving, kindness of our neighbor Ms. Julie, Mauer transformed into more of a city moose.  From the pictures you can see that he is very handsome now with dark grey accents and an embossed silver body.  Ms. Julie did a fantastic job, you can check out her blog to see all the other amazing projects she has done (

And while we are on the subject of Moose ... I have to show you our other "new edition."  This moose doesn't have a name yet, but he was a Christmas gift from Matt several years ago.  He has moved from room to room in the house and now we have settled on a permanent home from him in our family room.  Right along side Mauer.
