#April Showers #Handmade #Folksy

Todays blog is the April Show-ers listing club. We haven`t had one for several days so it`s their turn. Not so many listing over the holiday so the forums were quiet. With children off school and all the sunshine, who can blame them. I`ve just been going on early and then late afternoon, early evening time.
Not quite sure where yesterdays verse disappeared to, will have to make sure I double check everything is where it should be before I set it live in future. Apologies to those who were disappointed. Hopefully today`s mega verse will make up for it.
The other morning I wrote a little verse and posted it as a new thread on the forums. It was called `Ode to the Sales Fairy` a little tongue in cheek piece of verse because it has been so quiet. I was surprised at the response, several other people added their own bits of verse and they were really funny, some of them. Well they made me laugh anyway. So I decided to ask permission from the other participants to show their work here. I`ve shown it in the order it appeared.
As ever, to see a larger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
Have Fun and Enjoy. Disclaimer: If you hurt yourself laughing too much it is your own responsibility.

Please sales fairy won`t you come and view
the delightful goodies in my shop for you.
Such a variety, you wouldn`t believe
and still more ideas up my sleeve.
So please help me out and buy a few
because that will be my cue
to make even more delicious delights
so wonderful they might cause fights.
So come along quick, all One Of A Kind
if you want to buy lot`s, I don`t mind!

By Brenda from GweddusArt.
The sales fairy is on her way
She should be with you any day.
As soon as they have cash to spare,
The customers will all be there.
So if you all can wait a while
The Sales Fairy will make you smile

By Artmagic.
The sales fairy is still on vacation,
(she can only afford a staycation),
She knows we have been waiting a while,
To sell some stuff and raise a smile.
So hang on in there, she’s about to pack
And before you know it,
She’ll be back!

Mine
I don`t mind if she buys out of pity
or even because she likes my ditty.
As long as she comes to see,
my shop and have a spree.

Brenda at GweddusArt.
the poets on here are very clever,
let’s hope she returns and stays forever.

Mine
This making up rhymes is fun
don`t know when we`ll be done.
But I like rhyming so much
I`ll be keeping in touch
to see what comes next
or should that be text?
Maybe it`ll make the sales fairy laugh
that`ll be better than making her barf.
We`ll all do what we can her return
maybe I should see if I can gurn?
Maybe not, a terrible sight that would be,
not one she would want to see!

The Crafty Bride.
Sales Fairy long time, no see
Won’t you please come visit me
My jeans have split right up the bum
and that makes those behind me very glum
Oh please visit me I need the money
To buy new jeans and look like a honey

Brenda of GweddusArt.
Crafty Bride, that’s very funny,
Hope that fairy brings you money.
I really don’t know what I’d do
Confronted with that dreadful view

Aunty Joan Crafts.
Teabreaks I’d shut my eyes
Thats what I’d do
But then I’m wise
Don’t know about you!

Brenda of GweddusArt.
Aunty Joan, I’m very nosey
I’d spy that botty, round and rosey.
Take some pictures, one or two
Facebook next is what I’d do…….

Brenda of Gweddus Art after I asked for permission to use the verse here.
Be my guest and use my wit….
I’m already quite a twit
A little touch of the “Pam Ayres”
Might help us to sell our wares.
Crafty Bride can get new Jeans
And I can buy a tin of beans!
Hope that fairy’s on her way
To bring us lots of sales in May

This last piece was added when I said I waiting for permission from one of the other participants.
Brenda of Gweddus Art
I’m sure she’ll join in all the fun
After all, she shows her bum !!
