Is such an illusive thing and where does it all go...I'm always left playing catch-up to it. But I must say I'm ahead of the game for once , here are my latest works, I hope you enjoy " the fruits of my labor "

Candy Apple Bitemares

“Whole Worm”

I was aghast, shocked and suprized ,
As was the creature before my 2 eyes!!
Oh how nasty , oh how crude and
Oh so positively rude!!!
But I must confess, I just have to laugh,
Better to have found a whole worm than half !

Christmas Wumbles

Down a cwooked widow wode
Wiv a funny bunce a peepoh,
Called “ Wumbwies “.
I see dem ehwee mohning wif
Dayoh widow biwee pets.
But day don’t see meeee, cause
Ahm vewee sneaky.. hehehe!

Wee Winkies " Shimmers"

“ Joyful “
A gentle snow is falling once again
And one can hear the lovely voices,
Every now and then.
Shimmering softly as they gather round,
Singing sweetly as a choir
With a joyful Christmas sound.
by Flora Thompson

The Reverend

“A Smile “
They called him “ The Reverand “ a lifetime ago,
To weddings and blessings and funerals he'd show.
He now lives in a world of meager existance,
Always looking at life from a cautious distance.
A solitary soul, a creature of habit,
Satisfying his bloodlust with an occassional rabbit !
Although tired and weary, still he remembers
a life lived less dreary and once in a while
It brings him a smile...

Fatties Santa

“ Oh Dear Santa “

Oh dear Santa !
It seems you've put on more weight I fear ?
So the footsteps I heard were yours
and not the reindeer ?
Oh dear Santa !
Then less cookies and candy and all that
good cheer,
Will make for a Santa , who'll bring me
my presents each year !
by Flora Thompson

Christmas time or any time, it's always the right time for SpookyTimeJingles!!
So might I suggest you go and find a perfect gift where everything co-mingles?
Buy a few items if you want, but if you can't decide on just one thing, then of course buy many of the them in singles!!hahahaha!

Mark your calendars for the 13th of this December please, see ya!!!

Such whimsy and imagination!! :) As a fellow artist, I can appreciate the thought and time that go into each one of these pieces. I also admire someone who make such creative use of found objects. I have tried time and again, and, well, I always go back to the canvas. :)
