About Me

I have loved knitting ever since I was a little girl.I use to make dolls cloths for my dolls just out of the top of my head...I love making socks,slippers, mittens, dishcloths etc...I love drawing & cartoons & making patterns out of them...

My Grand Mother Burhoe & My Great Aunt Marjorie McCoubrey taught me how to knit when I was a little girl...When I use to go to my Aunt Marjorie's house I would stay over night she live in the high rise across from market square & we would knit & look out her window & watch the boats...Some times we would go out on the board walk...Then we had our walks to Market Square, we would go in all the little shops & look at all the ornaments & novelties...Some times we would buy something & get a piece of fudge at the fudge stand in the center of market square... When I would go to my Gram's house I would also knit when i was there...Gram was always knitting socks, mittens & she made me a blanket witch I still have...lol It has come apart several times & she would always fix it for me...I still use it to snuggle & the kids are not allowed to use my blanket because it is so warm & cozy...lol I actually made my daughter her own blanket & I will have to make 3 more for all them to have one...My mother inlaw taught me how to follow knitting patterns. God rest her soul. She is truly missed.

I love the 80's...Especially the 80's Cartoons, tv shows, Movies etc...When ever I come upon something from the 80's I gotta have it...lol I have uploaded pictures of things I have collected over the years so far...I hope to collect more...None of my items are for sale...I am just posting them for your viewing pleasure...Enjoy

Do you remember "Clapping Games & Skipping Games"?

  • Miss Mary Mack

Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back.

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For 50 cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

They jumped so high, high, high
They reached the sky, sky, sky
And they didn't come back, back, back
'Til the 4th of July, ly, ly! 

  • Oh Playmate, Come Out and Play With Me

Say, say, oh playmate,
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree

Slide down my rainbow
Into my cellar door
And we'll be jolly friends
Forever more, 1-2-3-4

It was a rainy day,
She couldn't come out and play
With tearful eyes, she breathed a sigh
And I could hear her say:

Say, say, oh playmate
I cannot play with you
My dolly's got the flu
Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo

Ain't got no rainbow
Ain't got no cellar door
But we'll be jolly friends
Forever more, 1-2-3-4 
  • A Sailor Went to Sea Sea Sea

A sailor went to sea sea sea
To see what he could see see see
But all that he could see see see
Was the bottom of the deep blue sea sea sea

Oh, Helen had a steamboat
The steamboat had a bell
When Helen went to heaven
The steamboat went to ______

Hello, operator,
Just give me number 9
If the line is busy
I'll kick your big ______

Behind the old piano
There was a piece of glass
Helen slipped upon it
And hurt her little ______

Ask me for a muffin
I'll give you some old bread
And if you do not like it
Just go and soak your head.

  • Miss Susie

I had a little puppy
His name was Tiny Tim
I put him in the bathtub, to see if he could swim
He drank all the water, he ate a bar of soap
The next thing you know he had a bubble in his throat.
In came the doctor, (person jumps in)
In came the nurse,( person jumps in)
In came the lady with the alligator purse (person jumps in)
Out went the doctor (person jumps out)
Out went the nurse (person jumps out)
Out went the lady with the alligator purse (person jumps out)

or
A 'Miss Susie' variation...
Miss Susie had a baby,
She named him Tiny Tim
She put him in the bathtub,
To see if he could swim
He drank up all the water,
He ate up all the soap,
He tried to eat the bathtub
But it wouldn’t go down his throat.
Miss Susie called the doctor,
Miss Susie called the nurse,
Miss Susie called the lady,
With the alligator purse
In came the doctor,
In came the nurse,
In came the lady,
With the alligator purse
Mumps said the doctor,
Measles said the nurse,
Hiccups said the lady
With the alligator purse
Miss Susie punched the doctor,
Miss Susie kicked the nurse,
Miss Susie thanked the lady
With the alligator purse
