Do you remember swinging between your parents, how they would lift their arms in unison so you could "fly". Do you remember standing on your fathers shoes while he "danced you round the room. Did your dad pin you down and rub his scratchy whiskers against your cheek, or hold your wrists and make you smack yourself whilst you squealed with laughter, begging him to stop. Sometimes the simple memories are best. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’– #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #hp_little

Could it be true that when you hold a conch to your ear you can hear the ocean?. wouldn't it be perfect if by simply holding a wooden spoon in your hand you could smell the resinous leaf mould of the forest floor, if running your thumb along the vein of a feather found you soaring over treetops, the wind biting your skin. Suppose rolling a pearl in your palm left you drenched in tropical seas, the turquoise water closing over your head or if by smelling the waxy skin of a lemon, you were transported to an Italian hillside, sun baking your back. Could it be that we all have the place of our birth flowing through our veins. Could it be that you can take the shell out of the ocean, but can't take the ocean out of the shell. ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #hp_little

Some things look just too odd to make sense, but apparently there is a reason why certain dogs are clipped to resemble a collection of pom-poms. In the 17th century poodles were used as water retrievers, the name "poodle" comes from the same old German word that brings us "puddle" and roughly translates as "splash" hound. Apparently shaving their back end stopped them from becoming heavy and waterlogged whilst swimming, while the big "mane" kept the vital organs warm, likewise shaving the face allowed them to see where they were going, whilst the "topknot" was often tied with coloured ribbons helping the owner identify his hound from a distance. There doesn't seem to be any credible explanation for the bizarre pom-poms on feet and tail, but there's no harm in a bit of decoration #aravisfantasyfruitnveg ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative

The TV only had three channels when I was a child, and as my mother had a strange prejudice against ITV, we only really watched the BBC. Childrens TV was a low budget affair in those days, limited to a couple of hours after school. I had to walk back from the village primary and would always come in tired and hungry, my mother would never have dreamed of giving us food to eat in front of the TV, we would sit up in the kitchen gulping down sandwiches and milk, maybe a slice of cake so that we could watch the children's TV shows. It always started with โ€œPlay schoolโ€ this was a program for babies, we thought condescendingly, they sang nursery rhymes and played games with a collection of unattractive toys, Big Ted, Little Ted, baby doll Hamble, rag doll Jemima and a big stuffed Humpty Dumpty, there were three different shaped windows, each day they would zoom in on one or other of the windows and show a short film, maybe something being made in a factory or animals playing. we had little interest in this juvenile offering. Next it would be Jackanory, even lower budget than Play school, this was simply someone reading a story book, the only interest being the illustrations being flashed up on screen every so often. Then there would be cartoons, which were nearly all American imports, Scooby Doo or the Whacky races, the English animations were usually paper cut-outs, often looking like they had been coloured with felt pens jerkily moved around in a sad approximation of the slick American shows, but in spite of their poor quality we still watched Mr Ben, Captain Pugwash or Paddington bear. Then after โ€œNewsroundโ€ an attempt to get little English children to take an interest in current affairs, came the flagship (literally) of children's TV โ€œBlue Peterโ€, A magazine program with cooking, craft, interviews, fund raisers, and interesting articles, you can tell the age on most English people by asking โ€œwho presented Blue Peter when you were littleโ€ for me it was Peter Purvis, Valerie Singleton, and dear, dear, John Noakes...cont...#jj_forum_1789

I will eat my five a day and I will do my best to get my seven hours sleep, I'll take the requisite amount of exercise, but when the government tells me not to drink coffee after lunch, it is going too far, "don't tell me what to do" ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ #aravisfantasyfruitnveg #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #ig_4every1_greenandwhite #numberof5 #jj_forum_1789

Like many of you I have always read for pleasure, I buy nearly all my books second hand, it allows you to be more experimental, after all if you are only spending 50p it's not the end of the world if it turns out to be disappointing. This method has allowed me to discover some truly inspired authors. I have just finished reading "Ahabs wife" by Sena Jeta Naslund, for the second time. The premise is simple, there is a passage in "Moby Dick" just one paragraph, which refers to the fact that Ahab had just married a young bride. Naslund imagines what sort of girl would marry the wild eyed obsessive Ahab. Una's story takes us from a rough Kentucky cabin, to an island lighthouse, adventures on a whaling ship, a shipwreck and life on Nantucket Island. I'm not giving too much away, just the outline, there's a lot of flesh on the bones of this sensitive 650 page adventure.. What are you reading? ๐Ÿ“– ๐Ÿ“’๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“™๐Ÿ“’๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“™๐Ÿ“’๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“™๐Ÿ“’๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“™ #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #gotd_1381 #jj_forum_1789
