Silliness that (sort of) Rhymes

Twas the month before Christmas
and all through The Cart
The dollies were ready for the party to start.
Ginger was wearing her finest attire
(and she smelled mighty sweet sitting next to the fire).

A little angel, her light shining bright,
Held fast to her star, awaiting The Night.

All bundled up and wishing for snow drifts,
Ellie imagines a sleigh, with elephants to tow it.

Even the moon and stars don pajamas,
getting tucked in by celestial Mommas.

Bunnies dream of holly jolly things
Like stockings and packages tied up with string.

A little elf waits for Santa's call.
She does her part, no matter how small.

The Big Guy himself is packing up toys
For all the good little girls and boys.


  1. OMG your dolls are so beautiful. You have the most wonderful talent of all to be able to take cloth and stuffing, and bring them to life with your talent of painting. I am always so excited to see what you have painted. Their faces are so real looking. Thank you for sharing with me.

    Country hugs, Sherry

  8. Jo your work is so amazing. I never tire of seeing it. I love the post about the paper towel gluing! I love your technique, and had never thought of those brown paper towels! So perfect! I use brown bags for my bigger moons, and cooked flour paste.
    Have a great and creative week!

  9. Yeah... you are just an overflowing well of awesome...

    I have given you a blog award if you want to stop by :)


    You don't have to do anything with it, I just wanted to share your blog with others :)

  10. You know, Jo, there are SOOOO many tv shows where viewers call in and vote for their favorite dancers or singers or whatever, and often the talent is bypassed because a lesser competitor happens to be a fan favorite! Well, if people were calling in for best creativity, you would get the most calls BOTH for talent AND as a fan favorite! Now you have added cutest RHYMING to the mix! Is there ANYTHING you are not really AWESOME at doing? I bet NOT! (LOVE the dolls, the rhymes, YOU!)

  11. that elf! those bunnies! it's too much!!! :))))

  12. OMG! I'm soooo happy I dropped by your blog...your dolls are beyond awsome, their faces, so lifelike, you are one fantastic talent! And your poem, well, wow...I don't gush often but find myself doing so here. Thanks for a lot of great spirit.
