Project of the Month - Fairytale


Its that time again and this Month and the theme A fairytale for the Blog hop was chosen by Elaine
We will hold this every third Thursday of the month , we aim to give you a little inspiration and hopefully a few Oooo's and Awe's along the way.

The Dream Team is made up with some of the most talented ladies so be sure to give them all a visit starting with Elaine

You should have landed on my blog from Lori


Ok I admit it, I choose a lullaby but it is as dreamy as a fairytail so I figured I could get away with it.

The inside of the card little flower and a bit of faux stitching also the poem is added.




Below is the wonderful lullaby of Wynken, Blynken and Nod

WYNKEN, BLYNKEN, AND NOD

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night sailed off in a wooden shoe-
Sailed on a river of crystal light, into a sea of dew.
"Where are you going, and what do you wish?" The old moon asked the three.
"We have come to fish for the herring fish that live in this beautiful sea;
Nets of silver and gold have we?"
Said Wynken, Blynken, And Nod.

The old moon laughed and sang a song, as they rocked in the wooden shoe,
And the wind that sped them all night long ruffled the waves of dew.
The little stars were the herring fish that lived in that beautiful sea-
"Now cast your nets wherever you wish-Never afeard are we";
So cried the stars to the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, And Nod

All night long their nets they threw to the stars in the twinkling foam-
Then down from the skies came the wooden shoe, bringing the fishermen home;
'Twas all so pretty a sail it seemed as if it could not be,
And some folks thought 'twas a dream they'd dreamed of sailing that beautiful sea-
But I shall name you the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, And Nod.

Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes, and Nod is a little head,
And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies is the wee one's trundle-bed.
So shut your eyes while mother sings of wonderful sights that be,
And you shall see the beautiful things as you rock in the misty sea,
Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three:
Wynken, Blynken, And Nod



Be sure to pop over to Liza next I just know she will have something amazing to show you.
If you get lost along the way I have a full list of the Design Team on my side bar.


Happy Hopping!

Mo Manning said...

Jak -- I absolutely love it. I have so much fun trying to "not peek" at what you guys are up to and am always amazed and surprised when I finally go "hopping." This has to be one of my favorite hops -- books are so important to me, and fairy tales most of all. You did a FABULOUS job interpreting the theme -- the card is beautiful -- a perfect "first fairy tale"for a new baby. xoxoMo
