Fresh Pineapple, Ice Cream and Cockles and Mussels(alive, alive oh!)

Today I put together three different carts from Papertrey Ink’s Make it Market, Market Street kit.  I started with the brown woodgrain looking one, as I want to make a layout of my upcoming visit to Dublin, featuring the statue of Molly Malone selling/singing, “selling cockles and mussels alive, alive oh”.  You might wonder at my fascination with this song/theme/image, and even if you never wondered at all, I am going to tell you about it.  I heard this little ditti as a child, as my tone deaf mother  (and she sounds like Adele compared to me) would sing it while doing housework.  The problem was that as a landlocked little girl growing up in Saskatchewan, I had never heard of “Cockles and Mussels” and it all sounded bizarre and somewhat perverted to me.  The memory stuck with me for many years, until I was finally enlightened about cockles and mussels.

The lovely lady is pictured above. The picture is from Wikipedia Malone 073007.

First picture is my Molly Malone cart followed by the Fresh Pineapple and Ice Cream cart samples.  I may try to make some little baskets like in the statue picture when I make a flat version of the cart for the scrapbook layout.
