Happy Hallowe'en!

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.

(Mum recited this poem to me last night, at half-past midnight. Can you believe the cheek of Peter???)
Illustrator: Maxfield Parrish

Thank you. I have been trying to think of Maxfield Parrish's name for so long. I have one of his prints and half the time I can't think of his name.

I used to play this on the piano, Peter Peter ...

I use to say that all the time and never realized until I was older how violent it is.

Hope you are having a good day.

Love Renee xoxo
