Myth & Magic #Handmade #Folksy

I need a Thursday theme! Actually that goes quite well together, Thursday Theme, it sounds good. Now I just need to find something that matches that.
Hah! I found something wonderful to have as a theme. Myth and Magic. All sorts of great craft items with magical themes behind them. Wizards, hobbits, fairies and unicorns to name a few. I hope you enjoy them. I suppose it couldn`t really have been anything else with the rhyme. That came first today, although it does vary. Sometimes it doesn`t appear until I have finished putting things on here.
Had a busy day with my youngest grandson. We had a little trip into the city and visited a couple of toy shops while we there. He had an ice cream and there was hardly any mess, bless him. He is only 2 yrs old. He`s always so good, stays close, holds my hand and walks well, rarely wants to be picked up and soon insists on walking again if he does.
The 12 yr old went fishing with his uncle after school, his first time, so I`m hoping he got on okay. Will ask after school today. Fishing isn`t everybody`s cup of tea, not sure I would like it. I could do the sitting and gazing out over the water and would happily sit and crochet, just couldn`t pull in a fish or reel in, whatever. Don`t get me wrong, I like to eat fish I just wouldn`t want to catch it myself and see it looking at me imploringly. Mind you, I wouldn`t like it if it was cold either. I do like my home comforts, not much of a roughing it girl. I use the term `girl` loosely. Inside I`m still a girl, it`s the outside that lets me down. Not that I really care, I`m happy as I am.
Oh my goodness, look at that I`ve been waffling on and forgetting myself.
As ever, to see a description or larger picture, just click on the item to view it in the shop.

The moon behind the tree, hung low
it had a very strange orange glow.
It seemed to glitter through the tree
as though it was trying to get free.
The moon hold such a fascination
maybe because it`s part of creation.
I love to stand and stare
mainly because it`s there.
It affects the tides, the tug and pull
and most of all when it is full.
It can affect how people feel too
does it do the same for you?
It can affect the way we sleep
others, it can make them weep.
Yet still we love that ball of light
when it`s a full moon, a wonderful sight.
Copuples whisper sweet nothings below
concious only of love`s grand flow.
Me, I love the way the world turns bluey white
the way it changes things, can give a fright.
But mostly it glows that ghostly light
brightening up the darkest night.
I just love to see it anytime
I love including it in my rhyme!!
