Jack and Jill went..........

up the hill!.. we all know this nursery rhyme but do you know where it's origins lie? Now for the education bit! The Jack and Jill refered to are Louis XVI who was beheaded (lost his crown) followed by his Queen Marie Antoinette ( who came tumbling after).
You never know when this bit of trivia might come in useful! These Jack and Jill stamps are part of the Mother Goose collection and you can see them here The door hanger is hand cut from chipboard and covered with scaps of patterned paper. The text is computor generated. The hanger and text are inked with the new Tim Holtz distress inks... Victorian Velvet and Pumice. and an old favourite Shabby Shutters. Don't have the right colour flower.......... no problem just get these and use your inks to colour co-ordinate Add a few Dew Drops for that bit of understated sparkle Hope you like it!
