as a present to Eim I thought I'd look up housemaid's knee and got this as an image….............
attributed to the painter Susan somebody Flint and you can get your own print for just $195.00

….........so following a conversation with Eim about why I have Denture Cleansing Tablets in my bathroom, the latest blog poll is
"what's the most embarrassing item you've ever bought?"
feminine hygiene products and contraceptives not allowed (unless you are a priest)
and a special Gordon Prize if you can guess why i have such tablets in my bathroom.

Writing about web page http://www.thingsthatmakeyousmile.com/
as a brief update I have been attempting to lure Eim out of her dissertation hell and back into a happier world where children are polite, neighbours are friendly and Carter laughs merrily in the background as a theme tune to our lives.
having just 24 hours until Roisin and Dave of Belfast/Canley fame (such a cosmopolitan house) arrive back to rescue Eim and Carts from their despair I thought I should do my best to cheer Eim up. A task that befits someone's other half (and that apparently is me and not Carter).
living in this virtual world and having the my eyes glued to a computer screen when they are not attempting to pierce through Carter's skin in an attempt to see what he is really made from, my first port of call for Operation Cheer Up, was as you've all guessed google.
feelling all inspired i put in my request
"make you smile"
and cross my fingers for something inspiring and smile making.
what I then find myself confronted with is this absolute living hell that should be banned as it will give children nightmares
all set to the most bizarre tag line:
"Primitive Folk Art Dolls with a Touch of Whimsy"
please someone explain what a touch of whimsy is as it's beyond me and my IQ is around 155.
please just click on the intro and look at the awful, sad sad pictures.
sample of this whimsical delight we have
Sallie is made from aged fabrics. She has been out in the fields picking strawberries and her basket is full.
and here's a close up…....
then to be sure you haven't missed the delicacy of these creations, another close up
Strawberry Sallie's hair is hand-dyed wool and her eyes are antique shoe buttons
and Sallie's best friend here is Prairie Girl
not quite Little House on the Prairie, rather Button Face (close relative of Leather Face) attacks poor Sailor Doll and attempts to stab him with her pointy feet whilst hiding behind her immense sized nun-type cowl.
now if Sallie didn't put the jeepers up you check these one's out – a delightful collection for you to make from an original pattern and distribute as presents for Christmas/Thanksgiving. These are what I call "The Hanging Collection" …
this is Cassie, such a sweet name, just look at her face
an old fashion pumpkin to be sure, one that seems to be hanging from his neck!!!!!!
now we have what I term the "Disturbing Countryside Collection"
this delightful lady is rightly called old hag
this wee chap is called Percival and although he's a bit fuzzy I think he's holding the Grim Reaper's sythe
again slightly fuzzy but the title of this fellow is too much candy corn. God in heaven knows why.
who is riding a cockrel instead of a reindeer. This is clearly what happens at Christmas in middle America.
if you are tempted to check out this website then take note of the Blair Witch style star that follows your mouse around and also that 'no right click functions' are allowed. The owner is that scared of people copying these delightful, whimsical pictures from their twisted and warped website.
another horrifice website that will make you gasp and probably quiver under the bedclothes is
this must end.

this just in from the Penguin Warehouse
This little guy will brighten your home with his crazy antics! Give him a pebble and watch him go!
but if the average cost of a penguin is too much (around $1300)
then $14.95 will buy you this…...
