Hey gals...look at this 'Make do and Mend' idea!

Don't go buying yourself a new mouse mat....this little idea works just as well! 
Yes its a quarter of a vintage scrabble board game! you must have several unused games lying around the house! The finish on them is brilliant...and just perfect for the job! and looks soooo much better too! 

I wouldn't be without mine :)

Love Happy x


  1. I find my mouse hates shiny surfaces. At the moment I'm using an old notebook with velvet leaves on the cover.

    I love scrabble letters for spelling out words around the house.

  2. What..... a..... FAB...... idea!!!!!
    Love it, gotta try it and thanks so much for sharing such creative ideas!
    Happy day,

  3. Hello, I was looking through your blog this afternoon for the first time, it was a very nice time and I do like everything you do, you are incredible creative and a great inspiration.

  4. Fantastic! Having a cool red mouse probably dosesn't hurt either! ♥

  5. Fantastic idea, looks great :)

  6. That's fun, Happy, and it ties in so well with a challenge I've just seen on I Choose Yellow - to live a year by re-using, making or buying second hand! Quite a challenge, even for those of us who already Make Do and Mend!

  7. It's darling! What a lovely idea!

  8. That's a great idea! I have a little blurp about you in my blog today. I've decided to make some changes at home and I've been inspired by your decor! Thanks Happy for always sharing your great pics and ideas!

  9. Stumbled across your blog today and really liked it! :)

  10. OMG!!! I love that idea Happy!! You're brilliant!

  11. What a great idea I'm off to do it right now.
    Have a great day
