Nursery rhymes

I'm using these pictures of a vintage nursery curtain to experiment with picture layout.

And it's been fun spotting the nursery rhymes:

Simple Simon (met a pieman) 
Three Blind Mice (see how they run)
Sing a Song of Sixpence (a pocket full of rye)
Goosey Goosey Gander (whither shall I wander)
The Queen of Hearts (made some tarts)
Humpty Dumpty (sat on a wall)
Hey Diddle Diddle (the cat and the fiddle)
Little Miss Muffet (sat on a tuffet)
Old Mother Hubbard (went to the cupboard)
Bye Baby Bunting (daddy's gone a-hunting)

Are children still taught these I wonder.

Ha! I see it didn't work at all when I published - nothing like the preview.
Back to the drawing board.


  1. Yes, my boys are learning all these, too. I can't resist saying them to them... the rhymes are so much a part of my memory!

    And thank you for your heartfelt thoughts at my blog today... just knowing that there are others out there that care means so much to me.

    Blessings, Katrina.

  2. Yes, my little ones are learning them too!

    Thank you for such a gentle, warming blog. I have you bookmarked!
