Mother Goose Blog Hop!





Welcome to the Mother Goose blog hop it runs from October 21-23rd.  Our wonderful host is Theresa the scrapbooking queen.  Theresa www.thescrapbookingqueen.com so that is where you will want to start this hop.  There is a lot of talent on this hop so come along with us through the Mother Goose Rhymes. There is also a GRAND PRIZE.

If you came from  Vicky's blog then you are on the right track.  We all picked a rhyme that we liked to make something from.  The rhyme I chose was Humpty Dumpty, I used to love that rhyme as a child so I hope you enjoy this project for this hop.

History of Humpty Dumpty its interesting:
The imagery of Humpty Dumpty
Humpty Dumpty was a colloquial term used in fifteenth century England describing someone who was obese. This has given rise to various, but inaccurate, theories surrounding the identity of Humpty Dumpty. The image of Humpty Dumpty was made famous by the illustrations included in the 'Alice through the looking glass' novel by Lewis Carroll. However, Humpty Dumpty was not a person pilloried in the famous rhyme!

The History and Origins of the Rhyme
Humpty Dumpty was in fact believed to be a large cannon! It was used during the English Civil War ( 1642 - 1649) in the Siege of Colchester (13 Jun 1648 - 27 Aug 1648). Colchester was strongly fortified by the Royalists and was laid to siege by the Parliamentarians (Roundheads). In 1648 the town of C
olchester was a walled town with a castle and several churches and was protected by the city wall. Standing immediately adjacent the city wall, was St Mary's Church. A huge cannon, colloquially called Humpty Dumpty, was strategically placed on the wall next to St Mary's Church. The historical events detailing the siege of Colchester are well documented.

Humpty Dumpty poem
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses, And all the King's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again!
Alternative Words...
Humpty dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty dumpty had a great fall;
Threescore men and threescore more,
Could not place Humpty as he was before.

The GRAND PRIZE is a MOTHER GOOSE DIGI ASSORTMENT

New Charms and a Favor for a Friend!

A friend of mine at work looked at my blog and saw that I was a crafter and asked me to help him with a very special anniversary gift and I was more than happy to help him out!
