Under a Bridget Moon (Fairy) (Note Card)

Regular price $5.00

Along the lines of my Pagan-y greeting cards, I offer these full moon name cards. This one features two of the names for the full moon in February; the budding moon (Chinese) and the bony moon (Cherokee). The lighter part of the moon is painted with with the texture of a hip bone and the the darker areas are colored with the velvety petals of iris buds. It also features the faint outline of Bridget, the February fairy (of my tradition).

The full moon is done in watercolor; the fairy is drawn in chalk pastel.

Perfect for February birthdays, holidays, esbats, or whatever suits your fancy.

A tidbit about Bridget:
Bridget 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.
Bridget is the fairy of February (as one might suspect). She is named after Brighid, who is associated with Imbolc (February 2nd, or Saint Brighid's day more or less). She is allied with Moira (the 13th monthless fairy) and Avery (April), She is the 6th oldest (all the fairies are sisters), and likes to start fires. She's a bit mischievous.

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 (these ones are white, 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! (Such as "Happy Birthday!") And it'll be packaged in a cardboard mailer, so it won't get all bent up.
