When I was a little girl I longed for an old-fashioned rocking horse. I got a doll’s house, a blackboard easel and books but never a rocking horse. I feel the lack to this day!

The above collage was one of my earliest efforts and contains several artefacts relating to mine and my parents’ childhoods including a doll called Suza that belonged to my mother and my father’s baptism certificate! The rocking horse is a miniature bought eight or so years ago from a local charity shop when we were still living in London.

Ride on a Rocking Horse was created with the illustration of a boy and his horse from Wikimedia to which I added this little ditty:

A ride on a rocking horse now
Forward and backward we go
With a hand on the mane, a grip
On the rein,
A frightening speed,
To and fro again.
Gee up, gee up, gee whoaooh
Gee up, gee up, gee whoah.

I’m in the mood to do another rocking horse and am considering what I can do with this image, also via Wikimedia, taken at the Beamish Museum, County Durham, England.  Textures are in order. Watch this space!

I may not be around much in the next week as my eldest niece is coming to stay. Have a good one.

Take care and keep laughing!

No news is bad news when it comes to my internet connection! If you want to know how I’m feeling, simply visit this recent post by belsbror who suffers the same frustrations.

Royal English Opera's Ivanhoe Mousepad

Arthur Sullivan’s Ivanhoe was the only opera ever produced at the Palace Theatre of Varieties. ‘The Handsomest Music Hall in Europe’, it was originally built as a venue for opera by Richard D’Oyly Carte. The theatre was renamed the Palace Theatre in 1911, a name it retains to this day.

News: I have a shiny new computer but a duff connection! It’s taken a day to create this post!

‘Coughs and sneezes spread diseases,’ as British comedian Tony Hancock (1924-1968) recited and sang (to the first few bars of Noel Coward’s London Pride which happen to match the first few bars of the German National Anthem) in the classic episode from Hancock’s Half Hour, The Blood Donor [1961].

At this time of year, we are all prone to the throat tickles that herald nasty coughs and colds. If you want to send something a little different to cheer up a suffering friend or relation, Medicinal Collage, created from a wealth of vintage health advertisements, is the perfect salve.

When I first added the design to Zazzle and chose my keywords, I included the word ‘cocaine’ (see top right advert). It’s been a long time since cocaine was freely available! I was told that unless I removed it as a keyword, I would not be able to sell the image. I was also not allowed to include that corner of the design on a US postage stamp. Ha!
