A Swarm of Bees in June (Fairy) (Note Card)

Regular price $5.00

This card features Juniper, the June fairy, with a silver spoon on her nose (she's not usually so silly but I couldn't resist poking fun at her a little). It is inspired by a quote I found (and my love of honeybees):

A swarm of bees in May
Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.
-An Old English Ditty

It's part of a small drawn mini-series (featuring Bridget-Julia/February-July) done in prismacolor colored pencil.

A tidbit about Juniper:
Juniper is one of the 13 fairies that I made up once upon a time (ha ha, no pun intended...ish) when I was a composing a (as of yet and probably perpetually) unfinished story about Sleeping Beauty. There's one for every month, plus one extra. They have all sorts of alliances and suchlike and are at war, and elemental, and all have weird names that are vaguely associated with their month names, function, or holidays therein.
Juniper is the fairy of June. She's allied with Marjoram and Augustine against Moira, Bridget, and Avery. She is unique in that unlike her other sisters' alliances, she's the leader of her trio even though she is not the oldest (Marje is, but she's a little apathetic and willing to listen to her younger sister). She's a very snooty fairy and tends to think she knows better than everyone else.

Oh yeah and card details, for people who care about that sort of thing:
Cards are approximately 5 1/2" by 4 1/4", and come with a slightly larger envelope to put them in (although there is a stamp on the one in the photos there will be no stamp on the one you receive; it is just for reference). This one is also blank on the inside, so that you may fill it with the message of your choice!
