The Good Life.

Dearest Universe, and all the powers and strengths and Gods and Goddesses within.

I'm so excited and eager for this move.I am in Love with The Good Life.  I thought I was ready before... all the things that have come to light in the last few weeks have shown me truths, and truly  made me ready to purge and go.

Solar Panels. Yes!
Bee Keeping. Yes!
A Garden that GROWS! Yes!
Dancing and Music and Laughter! Yes!
Spirit Work and Love Work! Yes!
Balance within and without! Yes!

I walk in two worlds. They want to keep it that way.

I have agreed.

Gazing Sphere! Fast Manifestation - What a Gift!

Today was AMAZING.

I had a reading out in a beautiful area, on a magical piece of property on Peek a Boo trail, in Toanche.  WHELMING. The energy was BIG.

I read for 4 ladies - every reading I wanted to go over in time! The last lady was the owner of the house. This house was completely made out in native decoration, a fantastically decorated home. I read in 'the library' - a room that had shelves from floor to ceiling, on all 4 walls. Filled with books that could have been on my own shelves (and some of them are!). Herbalism, Shamanism, Healing, Magic. I didn't see the stacks of tarot and divination cards until she and I had finished our readings. I remarked that I had a deck (Quester) that she had, but I hadn't touched it yet. I think after today, I'm ready to.

Anyway, at the beginning of her reading, before we even started, she said She had something she's been hanging onto for years. She knew it wasn't for her, but she had to have it to caretake for whoever it was for. And do I like round... you know...(and then she made the shape of the ball with her hands.) 

"Crystal Balls?" I said

"Yes! I have one for you. If you want it."

Sitting with my little bowl of penny wishes

 Absolutely, I said. I was looking online last night at some, and said to the Universe I'm so excited for MINE to come to me!

I'm surprised and pleased that it came to be so QUICKLY.

What's even better - I KNOW it was meant for me. The base is represented by pagan/wiccan Maiden/Mother/Crone. Not a native imagery. I made a girlish noise when I realized what was on the base.

Check this out:




Each of the vine leaves are perfect.
She also giften me with a painted stone with the native wheel she painted on it.
It sits with the other stones and crystals I have, on my makeshift altar. There's NO room on my altar for the gazing ball. It's currently filled with the God of Summer, and a mermaid! Oh, and the clock that represents timelessness! See the copper coil? It's for the orgonite I'll be making - apparently pretty soon!!
Today I feel blessed. I think I was given a wonderful gift with todays readings.

The Garden. It's trying so hard.

Wild Rasperries in the Garden!
I'm so excited! Had to get a pic first before I picked 'em.

Row on the left is zucchini (summer squash.) Row on the right is Beans

Bean Flowering.

Only ONE of the squash from this box made it.

Beans didn't make it at all in this box. A few tomatoes. And weeds. Yup. More garden statues in this pic than plants.

Swiss Chard gone Mutant.

More wild rasperries on the other side of the garden.

Side garden, with smallish tomatoes, and cardboard. My intention was to cover it with soil. Which I never ordered.

Snow peas.

Few more squash having a hard time of it, in the side garden.

Morning Glories.. getting ready.

Hostas are happy. Morning Glories catching up.

Lilies with... what I'm hoping is not bindweed.

Crazy flowering vine... gotta check the interwebs to see if it's something horrible. Flowers prettily though.

GAIETY pattern - Satin White W. H. Grindley & co Ltd England

This is the set that I made girlish noises over winning at the Salvation Army Thrift Store auction. 
The pattern is called GAIETY. I couldn't for the life of me find any images to help me date it.  It's not perfect - definately was well loved and used. There's only 4 tea cups left, and there's some mad crazing and cracking on a few of the pieces. 

That will make it easier for me to love. And use. The size of the tea pot is fantastic. And the blue is just close enough to my Great Gran's pattern, that they will mix and match quite nicely. I have 6 tea cups from my Nanny's pattern, just incase more than 4 show for tea. 

Oh yes, ladies and gents. There will be tea.
