Months ago Thom Courcelle sent me this crocheted lime juice bottle (who needs Absolut bottle art when Thom has his crochet hook out?) I had been greedily eyeing other IUOMA members who had received Thom's woolly wonders, so was delighted when this arrived for me! Life got in the way but I knew that I just had to share this lemony piece with you all one day. Thom says it's neither lemon nor lime, either way, I am CHUFFED.I think Thom was going to send it in a clear plastic envelope then decided against it, which I am glad about as I am sure someone in our PO would have kept it for themself...

 Then yesterday I received this FAB envelope from Thom, which has a nubile young turquoise beauty adorning the front, she's lovely Thom! Inside there is a magazine article about drawing Life Studies,which Thom thoughtfully sent me as I think he and most of you know is one of my passions, great reading thanks Thom, all the way from Seattle.....

I couldn't resist, Thom! I was inspired by Alicia and Vizma! The cat is out of the bag now... no going back. :D

It must be said that I loved your response! Alas, no clever words have presented themselves this time around...

Huzzah!  There is wit to spare zooming around this blog's comments (knit or otherwise)!  Now we know you are a poet, too, Lynn!  

I'm laughing and blushing at once...

In response to your brilliant puns.

And it weren't no sursprise

That Lynn's words were so wise

Or that mail art could be so much fun...

There once was a man named Thom.

Not Frank, or Allen, or Dom.

His brain was quite fit

and he sharpened his wit

with the needles he used to knit.

What creativity, what spark!

Each day in his presence, a lark!

Crochet, his forte.

He'd work all the day...

And yet, to him, it was play!

Alicia! Are you calling him a Knit-wit?????

Comment by Alicia Starr on May 16, 2012 at 8:40pm

a man who can knit and has a spark in his wit. Can't beat that!

Wonderful work!

Thom, you can't be serious! No dents or tarnishes allowed! They are wiped away by the sheer artistic flair you enjoy so freely! Paint away, Thom! Paint away!
