Jolly! Jolly! Jolly!

This weeks theme over at Every Inchie Monday is Jolly-Boat.  I had to research what a Jolly-Boat was.  Wikipedia (gotta love Wikipedia!) says that a jolly boat is, "The jolly boat was a type of ship's boat in use during the 18th and 19th centuries. The origins of the name is the subject of debate, but it was by the 18th century one of a number of ship's boats, and was used mainly to ferry personnel to and from the ship, or for other small scale activities. The design continued to evolve throughout its period in service."

Now this being said, I decided that since the time frame of the term "jolly-boat" was from the 18th and 19th centuries; I would go with something from that time period.  A Jolly Roger.  Wikipedia says that Jolly Roger is, "any of various flags flown to identify a ship's crew as pirates that were about to attack. The flag most commonly identified as the Jolly Roger today is the skull and crossbones."

I mostly decided to use a jolly roger because I used a boat back on 10.1.12 when the theme was "Boat".  I didn't want to have one again so I came up with the Jolly Roger.

For this weeks inchie I used Black and white delicas.  I really love how cute he looks as well.  I may have to make this again as earrings or charms.  Not sure yet.  Hope you like it.

Don't forget to fly over and check out all the other great art work over at EIM.  I am sure they are all rocking it out.  Have a blessed and creative week!

  2. That jolly roger is so cute and a definite must for earrings and necklace. Funnily enough your other boat is very much like mine for this week! (I didn't know jolly-boat was an actual thing!)
