BUSY USING "WHAT I HAVE"- BUT NO PHOTOS

It's been a busy day making things, using what I have of course....
- Stock for a "private showing" that Miss Marzie and I are doing for
a customer and her friends.
- A blanket for a baby who has just entered the world. Welcome Little Evie. Pictures will come.
- And trying to make something out of this find. Not sure if it's a winner yet. I'll do a post on it soon.

In the meantime I thought I would share a little poem with you. We are A.A Milne fans in this house. I love reading this one to my chicks.

The Three Foxes
Once upon a time, there were three little foxes
Who didn't wear stockings, and they didn't wear sockses,
But they all had handkerchiefs to blow their noses,
And they kept their handkerchiefs in cardboard boxes.

They lived in the forest in three little houses,
And they didn't wear coats and they didn't wear trousies.
They ran through the woods on their little bare tootsies,
And they played "Touch last" with a family of mouses.

They didn't go shopping in the High Street Shopses,
But caught what they wanted in the woods and copses.
They all went fishing, and they caught three wormses,
They went out hunting, and they caught three wopses.

They went to a Fair, and they all won prizes -
Three plum-puddingses and three mince-pieses.
They rode on elephants and swang on swingses,
And hit three coco-nuts at coco-nut shieses.

That's all that I know of the three little foxes
Who kept their handkerchiefs in cardboard boxes.
They lived in the forest in three little houses,
But they didn't wear coats and they didn't wear trousies.
And they didn't wear stockings and they didn't wear sockses.

- A.A. Milne.

Just one question. What are copses and wopses? My Dad probably knows.

I'm assuming just nonsense rhyming, like Jabberwocky, my favourite ;)

( and wopsers would be like 'catching a whopper' ?! )
