#SillySunday Cool Penelope PomPom — July 7, 2019

#SillySunday Cool Penelope PomPom

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.

Yesterday you met Penelope Pompom who was suffering as a result of the menopause. Today after chilling out at the beach with her friends and family she is a little more chilled… Why not check our #SillySaturday post about Shelma and Maggie some of our Shelby friends!

Penelope Pompom was cool

She didn’t like following the rules

She still wanted to be naughty

Despite being past forty

And just loved acting the fool

***

She kept herself looking good

The envy of the Mums in the hood

With her spiky green hair

And bright pink outerwear

She worked it like nobody could!

***

Her kids just thought her the best

She could twerk and floss with the rest

Their friends would come running

When they saw Penny coming

She would always make them less stressed.

Meet our old pal Maggie the Poledancer, who is off to an audition for a part in the local Pantomime. Click here to meet some of her friends.

A Panto was coming to town

Maggie donned her best gown

She was going to an audition

For the Cinderella position

And didn’t want to let herself down.

The producers were very impressed

And thought that she was the best

Her smile so disarming

She won over Prince Charming

And outshone all of the rest.

Maggie’s career had come very far

From her lap dancing days in the bar

How she loved being on stage

But missed the large wage

She could get from the cash in her bra!

Meet our old pal Maggie the Poledancer, who has taken to a very different kind of dancing. Click here to meet some of her friends.

Maggie’s was looking her best

Kitted out in her fanciest dress

She practised her prancing

For Strictly Come Dancing

The Shells were very impressed!

She really got into the groove

Performing the American Smooth

Her waltz was divine

And foxtrot sublime

Maggie knew how to move!

There will be no more tits and arse

Maggie was a woman of class

Her lap dancing days

Though an interesting phase

Was now a thing of the past!

Meet our old friends the Aliens. This time they are getting into yoga and rather enjoying the benefits. Click here to see more shell friends.

This yoga is really quite good

Sometimes it’s been misunderstood

When feeling depressed

Or when life gets you stressed

It can help to lighten your mood

It can make you look and feel great

Helps you focus and concentrate

The different types of positions

Help some medical conditions

There’s even one for the prostate!

Those earthlings have got it all sussed

This yoga lark is a must

You don’t have to be wealthy

To keep yourself healthy

With a body strong and robust.

A beautiful fairy one day

Flew into Scallop Shell Bay

To visit her friends

Where fun never ends

And now she has decided to stay.

 

She is as cute as she is pretty

Smart, funny and witty

Titania Tinkershell by name

But she loves it the same

If you just refer to her as ‘Titty!

Here is our little story for this week. The Shells have got together in all of their finery for Halloween for some dancing and a special picnic.

The Halloween party was in full swing

On the beach, in the middle of the night

The Shelleys were doing the ‘Moonwalk’

Under its bright, silvery light

Later, when they got hungry

There was plenty for them to eat

Ghoulash, or stake and chips main course

Key Slime Pie or Pustard for sweet.

Drinks or course were a-plenty

Snot chocolate or a nice cup of pee

Maybe some whine would be better

For their Halloween festivities.

They all held hands as they walked home

Dressed as they were, all in white

I bet that if you had seen them

They would have given you a hell of a fright!

On the scariest night of the year

The Halloween Disco was here

The Shelleys were so cool

Dressed as ghosties and ghouls,

Looking rather scary and weird

 

Thriller got them up on the floor

Monster Mash had them begging for more,

Bewitched went down well

As did Bat out of Hell

They danced as they’d never done before

A Very Special Package — October 21, 2017

A Very Special Package

I received a very special package today from an equally special person! This is what I found inside.

 

Can you guess what is in that precious little bundle? Well, here is a clue. can you see the little shell legs poking out at the bottom there?

 

 

 

 

As some of you may know, I have teamed up again with the talented Sandra (or Daffy as I like to call her), from Wild Daffodil and we are collaborating on some on some fabulous art that  Sandra created. She is incredibly artistic and creative, and I just love the images she has created out of shells, stones and flowers. So much so that I thought that they deserved little stories attached to them. I express myself better in verse so I wrote some little rhymes which Sandra kindly agreed to put with her characters.

We have created a few together now, and I can tell you, it is such fun working with Sandra. I love seeing what she is going to make her characters do next, we have had a pole dancer and aliens doing yoga so far!

The exciting thing was that Sandra got some of these made up into greetings cards, some with and some without the poem, plus she has also made some beautiful mandalas made with flowers, one of which is on the cards. I was extremely excited to get some in my package today!

A Very Special Package

The quality of these cards is lovely and they really are unique! If you would like to get your hands on some then please visit Sandra’s  Contact me page here.  

You won’t be disappointed!

The Ugly Shell Show

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.

The beach is where I spend my days

With my crew I like to play

 

We often meet up on the shore

For fun and games, never getting bored

Riding on the waves in the clear blue sea

You’ll find the Stone and the Shell family

 

I will introduce you to everyone

So you can join in with our fun

Whether in the sea or on the sand

I want to welcome you to Seaside Land!
