Our Annual Membership Mice

By Sharon Fenner

We'd like you to meet our membership mice for 2020!  It is rare that we hand-paint our membership mice; only happened in 2009, and again in 2010 which was our 20th year. 

The lily is the flower that represents the 30th anniversary.  Susan Bryan has adorned our Ruby Red mouse with a beautiful white lily.  It can be yours for $60. 

Our Teal mouse has a balloon bouquet; one balloon is especially for the 30th year.  Truda Mendenhall created this little cutie.  You can add this to your collection for $50.

They are available to all NFGS members who are current in their 2020 dues.  They are limited to one of each per Primary member/household for the 2020 membership year.    


Celebrating our 30th Year!!!

Think Spring!!!

By Sharon Fenner

Spring means baby animals! Frances Burton has created an adorable medium iceberg with a sweet kitten, fluffy chick, and a little mouse checking out pretty purple pansies. Bright yellow butterflies are flitting about. ($90.00)

Below we have a cheery Teal Carnival mouse, cluching a white bunny and yellow daisies.  On the back is a garden of daisies hiding a couple colorful Easter eggs.  Trudy Mendenhall was the artist on this 'happy' mouse. ($60.00) 


Last, but not least, we have a Crown Tuscan Working Elephant designed and hand-painted by Frances Burton. Her design complements the elephant beautifully! ($105.00)  Available March 10, one per Primary Member/household.
