The Mother Goose Blog Hop & some Blog Candy!

Welcome to the Mother Goose blog hop! 

Sweet Theresa, The Scrapbooking Queen has gathered a gaggle of gals together to showcase some of our favorite Mother Goose nursery rhymes, too fun!

I attribute my fondness of pumpkins to reading Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater as a child.  As I recall, I even wanted to live in a pumpkin house when I grew up!    Of course I don't live in a pumpkin now, but I have my great room decorated in autumn harvest & pumpkins year round!

If you're hopping with us today, you should have arrived here from Abby's blog, Scrapbookaholic, if you need to start at the beginning, for all the prize details, hop over to Theresa's blog, The Scrapbooking Queen!

Here's my nursery rhyme card...
Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,
Had a wife and couldn't keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.

Pin It
