Girls out Shopping

shell art, #sillysaturday, shell people, shell collage

Maggie went shopping in town

Enjoying a good look around

She thought it was great

Bumping into her mate

They went to a cafe to sit down

~

They chatted over a nice cup of sea

Both of them buzzing like bees

Comparing their goodies

From high-heels to hoodies

The Sales made shopping a breeze!

The background is an unfinished acrylic painting on canvas that I have never been able to resolve. It is the result of playing with bright colours in a Process Art kind of way. It has come in handy for a Silly Saturday background giving a suggestion of the town where Maggie and Shelma can meet up for a chat over a cuppa.

So thrilled to be teaming up with Judy again.

Pop along over to Judy’s website and enjoy a wry look at life, in poetry and prose, always told with honesty and lashings of good humour.

Strictly Maggie

 

shell art, humour, silly saturday

Maggie’s was looking her best

Kitted out in her fanciest dress

She practiced her prancing

For Strictly Come Dancing

The Shells were very impressed!

 

She really got in the groove

Performing the American Smooth

Her waltz was divine

And foxtrot sublime

Maggie knew how to move!

 

There will be no more tits and arse

Maggie was a woman of class

Her lap dancing days

Though an interesting phase

Was now a thing of the past!

Judy and I have joined forces to celebrate the Strictly Come Dancing final with Maggie for today’s Silly Saturday.

Pop across to Judy’s blog to read her cheeky Christmas Limericks.

 

Muddle

As I get into a frenzy of creativity, creating patterns and people with shells, my collection gets in a right old muddle – they need sorting out again.

Joining Cathy and our wonderful band of contributors in our One-a-Week Challenge

We would love you to join us – just leave a link to your ‘Muddle’ in the comments, either here or on Cathy’s blog post.

Also joining Ronovan in his weekly Haiku Challenge

Silly Saturday: Maggie Dreaming

shell dancer

Maggie fancied trying something new

And thought about what she could do

Dancing around a steel pole

Was becoming quite dull

But what, she hadn’t a clue

 

In her mirror she struck a new pose

Standing on the tips of her toes

With a graceful demeanour

Like a beautiful ballerina

She imagined being the star of the show

Judy and I have teamed up again to be Silly on a Saturday. Our Maggie has started to dream of new areas in which to expand her talents….. I wonder where she will take us next ….. any ideas of what she might get up to?

~

Encouraged by your wonderful comments and support I am getting some of the Maggie pictures printed on Greetings Cards. I’m wondering how many to print? If you would like to buy one/some, it would be great if you could let me know by email.

Which picture you would like and would you like the cards with or without the poems?

Direct from me they will sell at £1.90 with poem and be 8″x6″ and at £1.50 without the poem, measuring 7″ x 5″.  Postage will be added depending on quantity.

I will put some cards in my Etsy shop, but they will have to sell for a little more there to cover the Etsy costs.

Please go to the Contact Me Page to send me a private message if you would like any of the cards – thank you.

Here are the Maggie Pictures to choose from, click on any to go large:

Saturday Shells

shell picture, assemblage, Grandpa and child

Grandpa and Sonny love walking

Strolling along on the sand

Or perhaps a dip in the water

With Grandpa holding his hand

 

Splashing about in the water

Frolicking in the hot sun

Enjoying precious moments together

Staying with grandpa was always such fun

 

Growing things in his garden

Fixing things in his shed

Falling asleep to a story

Whilst cuddling Grandpa’s old Ted!

I create the shell pictures, Judy writes a poem inspired by the photo I send her. We are really enjoying sharing our co-created posts with you.

Orderly

shell collection from Abu Dhabi

touch, smell, remember

how did life get so busy

miss beachcombing days

 

AbuDhabishells

shell from Abu Dhabi

All these shells and pieces of coral were collected in Abu Dhabi in January 2014.

Two weeks of warm sunshine, sitting on the beach, wandering slowly along the shoreline, knitting, reading and arranging shells ……. ah! ………… sigh …….

You might recognize some pieces that have been used in my shell pictures.

My entry for our One-A-Week Photo Challenge, this week’s prompt: ORDERLY

combining with

Ronovan’s weekly Haiku Challenge: TOUCH and MISS

I could happily spend days arranging collections of objects in an orderly fashion – how about you?

Saucy Silly Saturday

shell art, shell people, humour

The feel of the pole between my thighs

Is rather a pleasant surprise

It doesn’t feel daft

Sliding around on the shaft

You can tell by the look in my eyes.

 

My customers, I just aim to please

As I twirl and perform a striptease

I am truly delighted

To get you excited

Your desires I long to appease

 

To make me feel like a star

Stuff a wad of cash in my bra

Have a grope of my nips

As you leave me some tips

And buy me a drink at the bar!

Judy and I have had such fun again this week, I am loving how we seem to egg each other on and inspire one another – we are both prone to large doses of nudge-nudge, wink-wink humour – hope you enjoy this week’s combined silliness.

If you enjoy Judy’s poetry as much as I do – you are in luck, she has put a selection of her poetry in a book: Rhymes of the Times : a lighthearted look at life through rhyme.
