catch a falling star

Sirena McKenna tried to catch a falling star and ended up falling into the lake. Luckily she left a few notes on how to do it.

I was feeling a little blue last night so I set out to catch my own stars.
My house doesn't have a balcony and  although I live near the river I made sure not to be anywhere near it so I wouldn't fall in like Sirena.
It's tricky catching a star you know. Some burn bright for days while others slowly start to dim as soon as you put one in a bottle.
Maybe stars aren't meant to be caught but allowed to be free and burn bright. Still I thought I could keep this one for just a short while. Surely the man in the moon wouldn't miss one tiny little star.
Hope you're having a lovely week.

Very magical...I love all the sparkle and glimmer.

Wherever did you get the bottles from? They are perfect for what I need them for. none at the dollar store!

Lovely and peaceful post.

I think he would want you to keep this star, which I am sure he sent as a gift, as long as you wish.

What a beautiful post! And such great bottles. Sorry you were blue - but I hope the process of "catching a star" cheered you. I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite books, "Stardust" by Neil Gaiman and the fallen star Yvaine.
