I have teamed up again with the talented Sandra (or Daffy as I like to call her), from Wild Daffodil to bring you another bit of silliness this Saturday. Sandra is incredibly artistic and creative, and I just love the images she has created out of shells, stones and flowers.
One of the nicest things about Sandra’s blog is that you never know what she is going to get up to next, from beach art, to knitted wigs, and mandalas to making spirals in her garden.
Here is our little story for this week. Meet Grandpa and Granny out for a walk, when they bump into some rather scary characters! Check out last week’s story here.
Walking to the seaside one day
Grandpa and Granny met friends on the way
They had quite a fright
Realising something wasn’t right
At a loss to know what to say.
There was an Ugly Shell Show
And the friends had decided to go
They transformed their features
Into hideous creatures
That, Grandpa and Granny didn’t know.
Granny had got such a scare
What had happened to poor Wilbur’s hair?
And Micky’s disguise
With massive bug eyes
And those lips…Wow, what a huge pair!
Even their little Sonny joined in
With the sockets of his eyes coloured in
Jill’s face was so flat
Like she’d been hit by a bat
Now who you YOU think will win?
I have a message from Sandra again this week
I expect you know by now how much I love to join forces with other creative minds. If any of the characters that appear on our Silly Saturdays spark an idea for a story or a poem, please get in touch. Judy and I are tentatively thinking of putting a little book together and we would both love it if it could be a group effort from our wonderful blogging community. All very much in the early stages and we welcome thoughts and ideas. I’m wondering about an ebook with sales going to charity … but all those details are up for discussion. Here’s a reminder of the characters so far.
