For The Sunday Muse which is hosted by Carrie💜





1Shabby chic he calls it. I’m not sure about that. Shabby yes, but more cheap than chic! His furniture looks so tired; the grandfather clock nodded off at twenty-past eight, just look at the miserable expression on its face!

It’s the height of domiciliary fashion he told me. Really? More trashion than fashion I think. An eclectic mix he claims. That’s one way of putting it I suppose!

A miscellany said he

A jumble said I 

A gallimaufry, he

A hotchpotch, I 

An omnium-gatherum, he

A what? I 

A salmagundi, he

You’ve lost me! said I.


Well, he likes it, obviously. Me? I’m an Ikea kinda guy.


Minimalist said I

Basic said he

Modern, I

Characterless, he

Contemporary, I 

Floccinaucinihilipilification, he       

I beg your pardon said I. 


Our discussion was going nowhere. Time to find some common ground.


A glass of wine? said he

In a modern glass? said I

Oh shut up, he!

Vive la difference, I

Cheers, said he.

    Great word play Keith – the old and the new – there is always something in common if you look hard enough 😂
