THIS IS FOR TRACEY!

I've created one of my Doggerel Doodles as my 'good wish' Christmas card for Tracey as my piece for the Paint Party Friday surprise 'Tea Party for Tracey'.  Here's my 'card':

POLLY PUT THE KETTLE ON  - JEZ
(Click to enlarge)
A NURSERY RHYME FOR OUR TIMES

"Polly put the kettle on",
That's what her mother said.
So Polly did as she was told,
And put it ON ……… HER HEAD!

I don't know how it happened,
(Though her hair IS fiery red),
For the kettle boiled in no time,
And "Well done!" her mother said.

Poll put the teabag in the pot,
On a doiley nice and lacy,
Then took it in the living room
And gave it to Our Tracey.

---oOo---

Paint Party Friday asked us to create a tea-themed piece , and it's been a secret for several weeks.  PPF have collaged together the pieces everyone taking part has sent in, and we have been asked to post our own picture on 20th December to celebrate the 'uncovering' of the event.  It's been fun.

Happy Christmas Tracey and may you and yours have a happy holiday.

  17. Jez this is simply perfect and I love the teapot on her head. I immediately started thinking about how I could attach one to the turban thing I wear constantly. That would be quite the thing I think. Thank you for your thoughts and support and always upbeat generous heart. You inspire me constantly and I hope that your Christmas will be a special one.
