WOW!  What a glorious Mother you have!

Makes you wonder where on earth you got your love of tiny, intricate things that take a lot of patience to put together from really...........

What a lovely present, and it did make me laugh..

I suddenly have a sneaky desire for a squishy house to play with. My little grandson would love your house, Zoe. Could I use him as an excuse to try to make one?

Gloriously wonderful!  I adore soft sculpture and here, combined with a mini home --- what more can one wish for.  A very Happy Birthday to you :)

What a splendid creation!  I would have loved this as a child and my youngest would love it now to play with!

Hope you had a wonderful birthday Zoe! The Mouse House is just delightful and well done to your Mum. I love the way it opens and it looks so cosy and homely inside. She is a genius and it is such a special present that couldn't go to a nicer person!

Many happy returns, too, Zoe.  That little house is wonderful!  It satisfies all my needs of comfiness in miniature.  Your Mother is Magic!

I adore it. Your Mum is really talented.

You may think you inherited her slightly bonkers trait, but I think you should also thank her for her delightful miniature creativity.

How charming - so cosy.  What a wonderful present.  Well done Mum!

Did she have a dolls house when she was young?

Just gorgeous.
