A Poem and a Prize

{turtle blog giveaway}
~ ~

While I was working on this little turtle, a childhood melody kept coming to mind...


I had a little turtle,
I named him Tiny Tim.
I put him in the bathtub
To see if he could swim.


He drank up all the water,
He ate a bar of soap,
And now he's sick in bed
With the bubbles in his throat.


And then I added:
I made this little turtle,
And now she needs a home.
Leave a comment on this blog post,
And she could be your own.

{Pattern found here.}

Cute! I've been on the lookout for a cute little pattern for a while now - I thought I could make you a new turtle for your collection. But you have beaten me to it :)

That rhyme was a jump rope game when I was a kid - but it started off "Miss Suzie had a baby, she named him Tiny Tim, she put him in the bathtub, to see if he could swim..." and he tried to eat the bathtub... and Miss Suzie called the doctor... Can't believe how easily that came back to me - haven't heard it in years!

Lovely turtle Deb ... if I was to win him, I think I'd send him off to Australia to look for another Tiny Tim - my geocaching travel bug that went missing around a year ago!

This is so cute,Deb.....learning to crochet is definately on my 'to do' list.

Lizzie said...

I love that little Turtle,
I think he is so sweet.
If I should win him for a prize
Well, that would be so neat!

Lizzie said...

I love that little Turtle,
I like him oh so much,
I "Liked" him with my Facebook page
Y'know "LizzieMade" and such...

Lizzie said...

I love that little Turtle,
I do still like him so.
I also clicked on "Like"
On my own profile you know...

Lizzie said...

Hope you like the little poem(s)!

I "liked" your Facebook page, with my own profile and my Page too - so that's 2 new "Likes" for PaperTurtle - yay!

I will post you a "News" link in my blog's "Stop Press" column. XX

He is a very nice little turtle - I love his flower and his paws... awwww...

Whiskers seems quite interested too!

Rhona said...

I have a feeling Lizzie would really like to win your turtle ;o). He turned out so cute, well done! I imagine you could guess where he'd go if I won him ;o) xx

Robyn said...

you are on such a role with these, Deb! I want to put in an order for a Charlie Brown doll! :) Or a robot! THAT would be cool!

(wait…I just saw that by commenting I am entering to win this. Woah! you are one generous girl, Deb!)

Alison said...

I've not heard that rhyme before but I can see why it sprang to mind!
Such a cute turtle really needs to go on an adventure holiday over the seas to England ;-)

Margaret said...

Is that really the Dradle song?

Karen514 said...

I remember that song!!! Liking you on Facebook was easy---I already like you a lot! Since I'm highly unlikely to learn how to crochet, I'd certainly love to be the winner!

Becky said...

What a gorgeous turtle and I love the rhyme, I'd never heard it before!

Mom said...

This turned out so cute! Little Tiny Tim Turtle--gotta love that guy! Don't send him away till after I see him next week!!! Love you! xo

Karen514 said...

Now there's a link to this post on my blog! Opting for as many chances as I can get. :-)

Mary Lou Kemp said...

What a precious little turtle. A friend of mine has decorated her son's room with little turtle and if my name gets picked thats who I will give it to.

Miriam said...

Oh this is so beautifully made, I would give him a lovely home here in the west of England, warm and sunny and by the see, please pick me, pick me, pick me xx

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...
