‘Digital collage using a vintage theatre poster for the musical comedy The Earl and the Girl and several pieces of ephemera in my collection. Produced by William Greet, it was first staged in 1903 at the Adelphi Theatre, London, before transferring to the Lyric Theatre in 1904. The show was also produced on Broadway in 1905 with Eddie Foy in the lead. The book was by the then well-known actor-manager Seymour Hicks, with music by Ivan Caryll and lyrics by Percy Greenbank.’

This has taken all morning to load and reblog on this dratted mobile. I now have to lie down and think beautiful thoughts about sugar-plum fairies to ease the stress!

First Night Design

Having just sold five sheets of Angel Love address labels — leaps in the air with excitement — I thought it was high time I said something about Christmas.  Or, rather, said nothing about Christmas but simply gather more designs for you to choose from.  They have a multitude of uses: parcel labels, gift tags, wrapping paper fastenings; in fact, you can stick them anywhere!  Perhaps I should rephrase that and say merely that you can label anything you choose with these Avery delights.

Take care and keep laughing!

'Twas the Night Before Christmas Throw Pillows
‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Throw Pillows

The mice attacked the Holy Family –
The one I bought in Prague, made out of straw.
By Christmas, Joseph was an amputee
And Mary and the baby were no more.
But I have other treasures to display –

Father Christmas Gift Wrap

Two perching birds, a Santa Claus, a clown,
A rooster from the church in Santa Fe,
A little harp and drum, a shoe, a crown –

Collected in the years I’ve lived with you,
The years of warmth and love and Christmas trees,

And someone to come home to, someone who
Can share what I bring back from overseas
And sometimes travel with me. Darling, look –
Our moon from Paris, glittering on its hook.

The Snowman Envelope

‘Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end’. Virginia Woolf

‘I don’t want to push the envelope. Let the envelope stay in the middle of the table. I’ll just make you laugh.’ Rita Rudner

‘Alongside my ‘no email’ policy, I resolve to make better use of the wonderful Royal Mail, and send letters and postcards to people. There is a huge pleasure in writing a letter, putting it in an envelope and sticking the stamp on it. And huge pleasure in receiving real letters, too.’ Tom Hodgkinson
