I was sitting looking at this yellow page in my art journal a couple of days ago and thought it needed a green apple on it. Then I thought of a pear and then the cockney rhyming slang "up the apple and pears", popped into my head. Up the apples and pears means stairs. Just a bit of silly fun!!! I lived in England for fourteen years, five of which was spent in Haverhill, Suffolk which isn't too far from London.
I got my Christmas decorations out of storage today ready to decorate tomorrow. I look forward to having my tree and lights up this year, some years I don't feel quite so in to it.
Hope you are all having a great week.


  1. 'Up the apple and pears' - great expression!!
    (btw - could you please email me your snail mail addy so I could get your magazine off to you.... marmic1954@hotmail.com. Your comments are set to 'no reply' so I can't talk to you that way. Thanks!!)

  2. A lovely happy picture! I love rhyming slang....

  3. Such whimsical art journal pages. Same here, I'm about to take our my fairly small X'mas assemble this week and start decorating. ;)

    You have a wonderful day!
