A Pocket Full of Posies

Ring-a-around the little grand daughter loves this! She asked me what a pocket full of posies were for. I didn't want to give her the real grim details but, I did want to make her a pocket full of posies card.For those interested in the grim details of the popular nursery school rhyme; here it is:

---"Ring around the Rosie"--refers to a red mark, supposedly the first sign of the plague
---"A pocket full of posies"-- refers to sachets of herbs carried to ward off infection
---"Ashes, ashes" --either a reference to the cremation of plague victims or to the words said in the funeral Mass..."Ashes to ashes, dust to dust." Sometimes line three is rendered as "Atischoo, atischoo"--sneezing, another sign of infection.
---"We all fall down." -- The Plague was not selective in its victims; both rich and poor, young and old, succumbed. -  by:
Magistra Nicolaa de Bracton

As for me; I just like holding hands with my grand daughter singing the nursery rhyme, watching her laugh as we dance around in a circle then, plop to the floor, giggle some more and wait to hear her ask me; "Let's do it again grandma!".

The posies came from Google Images. Yes, another pretty little freebie graphic. The button was made with several layers cut from my sweet Cameo. The button has a shiny look to it like a real button. I used Paper Glaze to give it this look.


  1. This is so sweet! Love the idea.

  2. That is so sweet. Great detail. I think I am going to have to make a pocket full of posies for my granddaughter. She would love it. Also I haven't made any buttons but have seen the button file in the library. Think it is time I made some up.
