More Microfiction #74



Never did like using conventional money boxes to save my pennies in...



The Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe needed my Fairy Dust-Puffer to make this one habitable. Its last occupant had athlete's foot.

Two versions of the same thing for Susan's MFM today, because I like fairies...

And because Susan's Mr Linky List didn't seem to like the first time I put my name in, there's a third Napple Notes MFM today too - over HERE!

  4. Wonderful what you male of the prompt, and it's picture. How do you achieve the "gradients" in the background shading?

  5. Loved both...a shoe box for pennies...normal when my nephew put his coins in a globe...
    Poor old lady, hope the fairy is apt at magic...she will need a new home otherwise...

  6. Lovely sentiments, both -- and I agree that your fairy magic on the illustration has made it more ... fairy-like!

    Just one typo -- and I mention it because I often forget myself -- it's is only used for the contraction "it is" ....

  23. Hope that fairy dust has an anti-fungal ingredient in it! I toyed with the Old-
    Woman-Who-Lived-In-A-Shoe theme, but couldn't come up with anything good. Yours is great!

  24. I don't fancy a used shoe money-box. As for athlete's foot, the best remedy is a dog licking and nibbling to effect a complete cure. It's true!
