Breaking News!

Our Morning Mr Magpie range will soon be available from Paperchase
Happy thoughts are fluttering around the butterfly house today as this will be our fifth collection to grace the shelves of the high street favourite. So pleased!

Morning Mr Magpie

125 x 125 mm, blank inside, cello wrapped with a recycled brown fleck envelope.

Always elegant in its appearance, this iconic member of the Corvidae family is believed to be one of the most intelligent and expressive of all birds (and animals). It is known for its cognitive behaviour patterns such as being very strategic and organised, as well as having the ability of self-recognition. It is also known to imitate human sounds.

In British Folklore,  the lone magpie is associated with bad luck, sorrow or grief. As a result of this superstition we are encouraged to salute the bird with the traditional greeting of “Good Morning Mr Magpie” as a mark of respect and to ward of misfortune,

Here at Symetria we like to view this incredible creature with a less somber association; we are celebrating the Magpie as one of the only birds we actually take the time to greet.

In celebrating the greeting of the magpie, and in keeping with the occasions on which people send cards to one another, we feel this version of the well-known poem is an apt choice for a greetings card collection.

One for sorrow
Two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
Five for silver
Six for gold
Seven for a secret ready to be told
Eight for a wish,
Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a time of joyous bliss.
