"Oh, you snuck up on me, you were quiet like a Church Mouse."
An image of a very delightful yarn shop on Bainbridge Island named Church Mouse Yarn & Teas came across my mind, it came across on a big screen, I looked at the barista dumb founded and asked, "Are Church Mice quiet?" Thinking he might know something about the subject that I might like to know. He said, " I think all mice are quiet." Ironically I was handed an up cycled bag from that very yarn shop in the afternoon, but it wasn't until dusk while walking uptown on the lookout for little mice that I realized the barista had used a cliche, he had said Quiet like a Church Mouse rather than Quiet as a Church Mouse and at 7:30 in the morning it completely threw me off. Half asleep and standing up just imagining a fun yarn shop and whether or not mice in churches are quieter than mice in barns.

magazine featured this sweater skirt combo a few months ago.
It is a cabled fisherman's sweater, like the ones you might see in Alice Starmore's
book of the same name, paired with a black tutu-sort of thing with black socks
and patent leather lace-up boots. A delightful combination for winter!
