OHHH Crash! Bang! Wallop!...

...Wot a picture! Wot a photo-graffff!!!!
As Tommy Steele once said...seen him live I have...he's very short...(not Hannah Gordon short mind) and that folks is a Mimi-music FACT!
Right that's enuff show biz gossip for now...so remember this wee fella?



Well I've only gone n finished it! I know!
Now you may recall a while back inspired by and featuring one of my Dad's fabulous tunes, I did this...




...well I've used one of his nursery rhymes this time. He came up with this when I was about 4 or 5. I had a Fisher Price wind up fake radio thing; it had a bit of a clock affair on the front, which you wound up and it played Hickory Dickory Dock, kind of a pre-cursor to an I-Pod/Ghetto Blaster only all sharp pointy corners, lead paint n marginally less entertaining. Oh the merriment was relentless!

So in another collaboration I give you...
PlateSmashingLoonthankyouverymuch




Yay!
(To the tune of Hickory Dickory Dock...)
OH! Hickory Dickory Dockery
The Mouse smashed all the crockery
He smashed a plate
He smashed a glass
So along came Mummy
And smacked his...





See the little bugger!



He's smashed Wedgewood, Hi-Balls, Royal Doulton and Tumblers!
Loads of glittery sequins wot I have fashioned to look like smashed up crockery and shards of glass are hidden amongst the grassy embroidery...



Mousey mates are of course denying all responsibility..Mickey n his chum say "Not us!" (altho he was the little bastard who'd eaten all the cheese!)
Mighty Mouse say "NOT ME!"
Danger Mouse is having none of it either!



Big old patch of leafyness in bright reds and clashing pinks and oranges are festooned with glittery glass beads in shades of green adding a wee bit o glitz to the general mayhem



So if you're after a bit of Mimi memory mayhem in mousey form, head on over to my Etsy shoppy and spend like the wind!
And a right big thank you...THANK YOU!!!!!!!... to the divine Wardi (I've been a huge fan of her work for many a moon now!) for featuring my works over on Feeling Stitchy x

Pip pip for now and thanks for droppin' by x:)
