Saucy seaside postcards of the past were the inspiration for this piece of mail art for the Artist's Play Room  'Mail Art' challenge. 

I wanted to create a 'little-bit-saucy' card, but with my own original twist and without the gaudy colours.  And - as this is a family friendly blog - cheeky rather than 1950s saucy.

So, I present to you three lovely ladies from the seaside town of Morecambe:

          These cheeky girls are Jill, Nancy and Sue
          They once used to dance in a saucy review.

          At Morecambe sea front they are still great high kickers
          Shamelessly flaunting their pink-lace-trimmed knickers.

          So if you should go and meet Jill, Sue or Nancy,
          Don't waste any time - pick the one that you fancy.

As Eric would say - "What do you think of it so far?"
(For overseas friends, Eric Morecambe (from Morecambe) and Ernie Wise were a much-loved comedy pair.  My favourite sketch had Eric playing a piano concerto with André Previn - referred to as Mr Preview - conducting the orchestra.  Eric played a cacophonous passage of random notes.  When Previn complained that he was playing all the wrong notes, Eric insisted "Oh no, I'm playing ALL the RIGHT notes.   But not necessarily in the right order.) 


  1. LMAO! :D Loved Morecambe and Wise...can hear his voice when reading your limerick...*adding a WAYHAY!* :D XXX
