Mavis Mouse Remembers Her Wedding Day

Mavis Mouse's sailor husband went back out to sea not long after Mavis married him. Since then she had a baby, and her mother has moved into the big, lonely house to help out. Sometimes Mavis thinks wistfully about her wedding day not so long ago....

Mavis has pulled her wedding dress out from storage.

She pulls it up against her body, remembering that special day.

Mavis twirls around...

...and twirls back again.

She sighs. Now it's back to the kitchen to cook up
more tasty treats. :-)

Mavis as reflected in the mirror, still holding
her dress.

Until next time, keep it fun! xo Jennifer

  3. Poor Mavis! Being alone with a baby shortly after her marriage is very sad.
    I wish something very good to happen to make her feel more upbeat.

  4. What sweet and tender photos! Having to go back to the kitchen is the fate of all women, fortunately they can dream.

  5. Hi Jennifer! Very poignant. I'm sure her treats will cheer her up a bit! Mavis can dream and plan for the day her husband returns and they can properly celebrate as a family. I hope! Do you have any story plans for Mavis?
    Kind regards, Brian.

    1. Hi Brian, We'll have to see about the story plans. This was a story I'd wanted to do for a long time. Looks like I might have to do another with a happier ending, though. ;-) xo Jennifer

  7. It's so nice to have wonderful memories to think back on. Maybe, Mavis and her husband, one day should renew their promises, so they create more wonderful memories.

  20. O, poor Mavis... You get married, think you are going to be independent and happy, instead, your mother moves in and your husband moves out...
    Mieke's dress is beautiful and please do continue the story with a happier ending please? :-)
    Hope you've recovered from your cold.
    Hugs,
