Twelve proverbial silhouettes

Twelve proverbial silhouettes given a literal depiction: the fat is in the fire, to have a finger in the pie, sending coals to Newcastle, one sows and another reaps, the last drop makes the cup overflow, to hit the nail on the head, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, tall oaks from little acorns grow, to lay up for a rainy day, early to bed early to rise, straws show which way the wind blows, a rolling stone gathers no moss.
