A Swarm of Bees in July (Fae and Furious) Bookmark

Description

This bookmark features Julia, the July fairy, with a fly. 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 Julia:
Julia 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.
Julia is the fairy of July. She's loosely allied with Joanna (January). The two of them are pretty neutral. Julia is the third youngest fairy.

This bookmark measures 2" x 5 1/4". All my bookmarks now come in plastic sleeves!

20% of the proceeds for this piece will be donated to The Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees. (.50 will be donated for this print.) Check the Bee Charitable section of my shop for more Honey Bee benefiting items ;)
