Would you?

If you were told the moon was a balloon and you were the only one to see the string, would you pull it close?  Would you be tempted to make friends with the man in the moon?  And if you did and a small boy was standing at his window, scared because he'd had that same dream again of being chased by a tiger with a crown on it's head, through the jungle, and he saw you and he ran to his parents to tell them that he saw the moon slowly descending to earth, and they just tucked him back up in bed telling him shhhh, shhh it's just another dream, would you keep giving that string a gentle tug?

Or if you grew fairy wings would you fly up to the moon and tell the moon not to be lonely anymore because you were there and would visit often?  Would you become friends with the moon and tell each other stories.  Learn what it is like to be up in the night sky, and share with the moon what it is like being earthed, with daisies growing at your feet?

Beautiful cards in our store, illustrated by the very talented Lisa Falzon, which inspired a little bit of fantasy and thought.

Hope you've had a lovely Easter.
Don't tell anyone but I'm sitting up in bed eating chocolate!!
