The Three Muses - Fun and Games

"It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye." Did anyone else hear this in their childhood? My Mom used to say it when we were tearing around the house hooting and hollering and generally making nuisances of us. The theme of The Three Muses challenge this week is "fun and games" and this is what popped into my head.

wonderful piece, heather!
the saying here is "...until somebody cries" - well, the loosing of an eye is a bit more dramatic, of course;))

Goodness, never heard that saying, Heather. My Mom was always saying "There were 7 of us kids at home and we didn't make as much noise as you 2!" I love your vintage piece, and you little "king" is adorable! Thanks for joining us.

my grandmother always said, "be careful, you'll put someone's eye out with that thing." it didn't matter what the "thing" was, she always had to offer up this pearl of wisdom. LOL!! i love your vintage looking piece, it's outstanding.

There'll be tears before bedtime is what my Mum used to say to us when we were laughing and having too much fun. She was usually right. Gorgeous piece Heather and I love those 'dice' wheels.

My guess is that your mother had a wicked sense of humour! What a great quote. I hadn't heard it before but I am saving it for my small grandchildren (and the safety of their eyes).
Your collage is exquisite. I love the vintage touch with the little king taking centre stage. Wonderful artwork.
