SCRIBBLE PICNIC ~ GRANDFATHER CLOCK

Click to Enlarge
Grandfather Clock is the word for this week.

I hope you will indulge my "warped" sense of humor.  When the fractured Nursery Rhymes first came out I did get a laugh or two from them.  My Scribble Picnic will feature one of them.

Hickory, Dickory Dock
Three mice ran up the Clock
The Clock struck one
The other two 
Escaped with minor injuries

Having a new word each week is really a lot of fun.  I hope some of you who enjoy "scribbling" will join in.  Just click on the Scribble Picnic Badge on my sidebar and see all the other takes on "Grandfather Clock" and join the fun.

  1. this is fun, I like the loose style of drawing, this fits the nursery rhyme very well. I like that the plant looks like a creature with wild hair and it's smiling & perhaps watching the mice

    have a lovely day.

    1. There were so many very serious pieces already on Scribble Picnic, I almost feel bad for making mine so silly. But I must say that was the first thing that popped into my head. I enjoy a good "twist". Thanks for you comment, and yes, that does look like wild hair...haha

  4. I love the idea of a whole family of mice running up the clock - and a little footstool there for me to jump up on when they come back down to the floor, eeeeeeeeek!!!!!!

    Cute idea, nicely illustrated Wanda.

  6. You do have a warped sense of humor, I thought of the song The Old Grandfather Clock---ninety years without stumbling,

    1. That song was used by several of the other artists. I had never heard it. One artist even put a video and I so enjoyed it.

  7. This is so cute, Wanda! I must say, we recently added an artificial cane palm plant to our living room (we have cats, so unfortunately it had to be artificial), and my eye was immediately drawn to your plant and planter in this drawing! I love them both, haha! Would love to have them in my living room. Lovely take on the theme, such fun!

  8. Ha! Thanks for the giggle. Great take on the theme. I'm reminded that my husband put two mousetraps out in his workshop. Caught one mouse and something escaped with the other trap. Has still not found it!

  9. I love the whimsy, Wanda. Thank you. Well drawn and painted too. Love that slightly twisted rhyme too. Too funny! haha. Your post/addition is not too silly at all--look at mine! :)

    Great write up. Thank you so much. BTW, I am thinking of you and praying for you and hubs too now that he's 80 this year. It is such a sobering time enterng one's 80's and 90's i imagine. So glad you have your strong faith and have built up so many others aroudn you including your family that I know, come what may, you will always have love and support around you....well deserved too, I might add. May all our clocks keep ticking for a lot longer! :)

  12. At first I thought it was three blind mice
    But they seemed to know where they were going
    So then I quickly thought twice
    It must be Wanda's mind controlling!

  13. HaHa on the fractured rhyme! Now if they can just catch those other two mice!
    I do like your clock, and by the way, mine is definitely a scribble and not serious this week.

    1. Well there was also "Little Miss Muffet, sat on a tuffet. Along came a spider and sat down beside her, and she took off her shoe and smashed it" Or "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the kings horses and all the Kings men had scrambled eggs." But then you know I also like Far Side jokes. HaHa. Maybe you are just too young. HaHa

  17. I love it! Can you tell I'm catching up with your posts his morning? I have a couple of friends who do this with mine. All of a sudden I will get comments from one or the other on the last dozen posts or so! Guess I'm doing that same thing! It's like reading a chapter book this way!
