Penguin's dream of flying

It seems that to be able to fly is an eternal dream of us. 
We envy birds for the way they conquer the sky and how beautifully they float in the air.
However, some birds never have chance to enjoy the spectacular view high up. 
This is a dream of an Emperor Penguin who wants to see and conquer the world. (He's an Emperor after all). :)

The magic hat

One day, Boy A found a magic hat. Where did the hat come from? No one knows. 
(Although I am the creator of this drawing, I don't know either. The only thing I know is that, the hat will change Boy A's life forever.) ^^
Inspired by the wizard's hat from Tove Jansson's Moomin books

Bottle postcards (3)

Let's see, what Grandma has in her garden: Strawberries, snow peas, daisies, yellow pansies and lavender. :)
The strawberries look yummy. Such a shame, because of an allergy, I cannot enjoy their tasty flavor.

Bottle postcards (2)

If we could put one's memories into bottles and lay them on a shelf, I wonder, how many bottles we would need? 
As child I used to live with my grandparents at the seaside. To me, memories of the sea are memories of the childhood at the same time. As teenager I was asked, if I were a thing, what I would like to be. I remember to have answered, that I'd like to be a lighthouse. :)
However, today's theme for the bottles of memories is Love. Van Gogh's painting "Starry Night" and a heart carved in a tree as symbol of puppy love were my inspiration.
Actually, I didn't have either memories of  a romantic starry night or a heart carved in a tree. How about you?

Bottle postcards (1)

Don't throw away empty bottles.
Let's fill them with a lot of beautiful memories that you're afraid you will forget.
These two belong to a set of postcards about my favorite motive: treasures in a glass bottle.

A brand-new speed post service offer for lovers of culture of writing and vintage style or eco-warriors...
Be bored with Airmail etiquettes and troubled by greenhouse effect?
Let's GO GREEN by the use of our new Snail Mail stickers! 
(Caution: This is just a work of fiction.)
I wonder whether Mr. Postman could feel offended due to delivering this postcard. :P
