Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye



The whole day this outfit reminded me of this nursery rhyme:

Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,

Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,

Oh wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?
The king was in his counting house counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!

Haha! I guess it does look sort of blackbird-ish. I love the dress, it's so wonderful. Black and mustard/yellow look so great together!
