Would you rather… have a sugar mouse or a chocolate chunk?

5 Apr

Have I mentioned how much I love sugar mice?

Well, I do. Like crazy, insanely love them.

I suspect it’s due to my mother’s very strict no sweets policy when I was a kid…

Strict except every now and then (in a blue moon) she decided to allow me either a bag of sugar letters or a sugar mouse.

(As you might guess, I have a thing for sugar letters too.)

Anyway, so when I saw a tweet by Little Doodles mentioning a sugar mouse necklace, I was sold.

And so I came across Laura Tabor’s jewellery…

Now the sugar mouse may have brought me to this collection but then I saw the gobstoppers, the cola bottles and the chocolate ring.

Oh my, I was like that big-eyed kid in the sweetie shop all over again… a rather expensive sweetie shop it has to be said!

So what’s your favourite? And why?

Are you a  chocolate girl or just a sweetie at heart?

    I’m sure I inherited my sweet tooth from my Scottish ancestors. 🙂 I love chocolate but I think I’ve got to say my fave sweet is always got to be thelemon drop. I have an idea to make a lemon drop necklace with some really swell glass beads — just not entirely sure how I’m going to arrange it.

    Love that sweet ring! I’ve never had a sugar mouse – think I need to rectify that shortly.

    those are very cute, sugar mice remind me of christmas, mum used to always put pink ones in my stocking. I’m a chocolate girl at heart though…

    Those are a lovely idea, so creative. I too had a sugar mouse in my stocking as a child and love them for that reason! My favourite sweets, though, are jelly babies and M&S percy pigs, but very sadly they’re not suitable for veggies so I’ve been stoically doing without for a couple of years now. I just found out yesterday that you can buy veggie Haribo though so all is not lost!!

    I’d have to be a gobstopper girl: it has the pleasant side effect of making the husband happy too!

    I’d have to take a gobstopper, they are all amazing.

    sugar mice are, pretty much, the best sweetie ever…they far surpass chocolate any day…

    also love the little mousy bracelet, quite fancy the idea of two little mice running round my wrist!
