Lucy Locket

The theme for the In my Pocket challenge this week is ribbon. I immediately thought of this nursery rhyme, and dug out my Children's Treasury that I was given as a little girl. The book is in tatters now, having travelled across the world, but I still look at the Kate Greenaway illustrations with fondness.
The ribbon forms the frame around the text. The flowers match the paper colours better in real life.
