This all started with the Gingersnap Creations fairy challenge.
While surfing in cyberspace for inspiration and freebies, I was taken by this manuscript found on the Graphics Fairy site: a few lines in a poem entitled Night from the Lady's Tablet of Friendship, which is a pre-civil war autograph book:
Tis one of morn, the silent hour
When sprites and spirits glide around,
When fairies sport in forest bower,
And moonlight silvers o'er the ground;
Then there's the Dorothy Gale intro to the Over the Rainbow song in the Wizard of Oz:
A place where there isn't any trouble....Behind the moon.....
