Free Whimsical Fairytale Illustration for Cardmaking, Collage, Crafting or Scrapbooking: Overheard Between the Mice

A little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest men.
Roald Dahl

A very sweet black and white fairy tale illustration from 1901 that shows a mischievous garden fairy with butterfly wings, creeping up close to listen in on a couple of mice's whispered conversation as they huddle under a tangle of nasturtium leaves. Originally captioned "Overheard Between the Mice." I wonder what they are saying?
