Hello all, Alison (butterfly) here with a pair of tiny hangings offering a fleeting glimpse of the creatures I'm sure are at least partly responsible for all the faerie mythology down the ages (though obviously there are real faeries to be found too, if you look hard enough).
Words and Pictures, but this one's irresistible!).
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Don't forget to come and play in our August Challenge - share your Postcards, Travel and Holiday themed projects to be in with a chance at the prize draw at the end of the month. See you soon!

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, -
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
'Neath billowing skies that scatter and amass.
All round our nest, far as the eye can pass,
Are golden kingcup-fields with silver edge
Where the cow-parsley skirts the hawthorn-hedge.
'Tis visible silence, still as the hour-glass.
Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragon-fly
Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky: -
So this wing'd hour is dropt to us from above.
Oh! clasp we to our hearts, for deathless dower,
This close-companioned inarticulate hour
When twofold silence was the song of love.
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
