from a play day................did you know that the Crooked Man nursery rhyme has a basis in history? No, neither did I till I looked it up yesterday!
Yesterday my good friend TRACY and I decided to have a play day inspired by this blog NORAHS and this blog SOMETHING SUBLIME, while we were playing it occured to me that the houses reminded me of the crooked man nursery rhyme but neither of us could remember it exactly so I looked it up.
Go HERE to see the history behind it.
PAPERBAG STUDIOS stamp plate called DOODLES AND DATERS.
Remember the peeking Stampotique girls from a couple posts back? I really liked the way they looked so used the idea again here.
When Tracy left last night these pages were almost done and I had another spread in a smaller journal (with brown pages, from Paperchase) part done, I sat and finished them both in front of the TV!
THE STAMP ATTIC this next week.
Now I have to tell you the risks I took to take the photos for this post! I like to take my pics outside as the light is generally better than in the house, so there I was this morning in me dressing gown and a pair of flips flops in the garden in a very blustery wind risking exposing meself to the neighbours any minute, conjures a picture I know.........SORRY! Seconds after I came back inside the heavens opend an it POURED with rain! As I say the risks you run!!
