So I haven’t really had a chance to “chat” since I returned from Vienna. I am happy to report that we had a fabulous time. Vienna is an amazing city full of history and, consequently, the most incredible buildings and architecture. The Christmas markets were in full swing and looked so pretty lit up at night. There was even a little snow flurry on the Friday. My only disappointment was that I didn’t eat as much cake as I had planned! I have a few photo’s to show you.

Whilst we were away we did of course miss the huge storms that hit the UK and I do hope that you all survived. It would seem that the storms didn’t have as great an impact in Sheffield as they did elsewhere. We did wonder if the weather might affect our return flight but in the end it was problems with air traffic control computer systems that caused a slight delay.

So to today’s project which I shall be sharing over at Every Inchie Monday. The theme this week is “found.” At first I was going to portray the things that I commonly lose and then inevitably find – keys, purse, credit cards, phone and glasses. Of all those it is usually only my glasses that are genuinely lost and yes, they are sometimes on top of my head! However, something stirred a memory deep inside and the nursery rhyme Lucy Lockett sprang to mind:

P1060704Unlike many of my fellow players over at Every Inchie Monday I am not great at drawing but was lucky enough to find some fabulous digi stamps. I played with the images, cropping and shrinking them, to get the three final images, printed them on to beige card and then coloured with Promarkers.

I printed out some impossibly small text of the nursery rhyme words and then inked with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I don’t think you hear much of this nursery rhyme these days but it is certainly one that I remember fondly from my childhood. Even now, to me, Kitty Fisher was always some sort of cat.

Thanks for buzzing by.

    • Strangely I didn’t – which was probably a mistake. I’m already regretting not buying more of some things that I saw!!! I’ll have to go back.

  1. Oh wow, these are fabulous. Your inchies are stunning and I love the digi stamps.

    I also love the photos of your trip, it looks amazing and just as I imagined.

  2. Perhaps it’s an age thing. It even has a tune. I can remember we sang it at school and I remember my mum used to sing it, but I’m 63, perhaps you’re younger and didn’t learn it.

    • Now you have said that about the tune it is beginning to ring a bell! However, my Mum quite often used to sing poems so I don’t know if she might have sung it rather than spoken it. I do love the old traditional rhymes and would hate to see them forgotten – so glad you remember it too.

  3. Oh, Vienna sounds amazing! Your pictures are wonderful too!
    I love the nursery rhyme inchies! I remember reading this one in a huge book of nursery rhymes, but I don’t think it’s as popular anymore.

    • I’m glad you remember the rhyme and I think you’re right – it’s not one that people use any more. It’s quite interesting reading about the origins of it too.

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
