Wish Upon a Star

Star Light, Star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have this wish I wish tonight


I know I can't be the only one of us that looks up to the stars at night and makes a wish. I'm almost obsessive about it. Once I see the night sky and spot a star.... well I consider it bad luck to not recite the poem and make a wish. And it has to be the first star I see... sadly that sometimes turns out to be the light on an airplane and I have to begin again but not before I wish the passengers on the plane a safe journey. :) Can you say OCD?


Our members are fabulous artists for sure but today I've reached outside our little bbest universe and into the vast Etsy unknown to bring you a peek at some other beauties.

What do you wish when you see that first star?


Tonight, along with my standard ... "I wish I don't wake up 3 or more times to use the bathroom" I will wish that you all take a second to look up into the magical night sky.... and
that all your wishes will come true.


Life is good.

OOOh what a fabby post!!!!

I remember when we lived in Ireland, we lived right out in the country high up on a hill. At night I used to stand outside (weather permitting!) and look up. All I could see was some deep, dark, blue/black rich velvet with brightly coloured sequins shining brightly. Many a wish was spent up there!

Love this post, Chauncey. I often look up at the sky, not to wish, just to dream. There has to be something out there, doesn't there?
Wonderful choices in art I must say! I think I might have to own one or two or four or all of them!!!

Very fun, Chauncey -- I remember saying the little poem while riding in the car at night as a little girl. Then, that took me down memory lane to a song, "I see the moon and the moon sees me. . ." my mother would sing as well. Plus, very lovely items you discovered -- and inspiring!

I am like you Chauncey. One night I was looking up into the sky and talking in my mind to my father who had passed away, and a shooting star shot across the sky! I had never seen a shooting star before. It was too cool, and I was very much affected by it. Love the selections!
