This past Full Moon, cupped in a juniper tree.

It's a funny thing, living in a town like Manitou. Even if you could possibly forget the night of the Full Moon, the incense and the sound of drumming pouring out of half the town would remind you.
Hope you all had a lovely Esbat!

...A Segment of the Rainbow I Have Clutched

"The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched."

-Henry David Thoreau

A work in progress, still on the needles. My take on the traditional witch's hat: not a somber black, but the whirling color progression of the Wheel of the Year. Wool, with a kiss of silk and kid mohair.

The funny lumpy bits at the bottom are the brim (in progress) and will look much less ornery when bound off.

Winner of the May Give Away

Posting a day late: a thunderstorm knocked out most of the power and internet service here in our mountain valley yesterday. Sorry for the wait!
Coyoterose is the winner for the May giveaway.

Thank you all for entering, and next month, I think we'll be offering a runner-up prizes as well, so stay tuned!

Blessed Beltane, and May Giveaway!

This months giveaway is a psychic self defense set, including:

War Water:Our War Water is made during the waning Moon, with water from the legendary Iron Springs, at the foot of Pikes Peak, and antique railroad spikes. It comes in a generous 8oz brown glass bottle.

Uncrossing Oil: A traditional blend of herbs, formulated to break and reverse all malevolent magic thrown your way, including Malocchio (Evil Eye). This oil is also very effective when used in combination with stones and crystals, particularly double termination quartz, herkimer diamonds, obsidian, black tourmaline, or others associated with psychic defense.

Banishing Powder:Heavy duty formula, stinky and effective. My Banishing Powder has successfully gotten rid of two lazy bosses, one psychotic ex (they found him a month later, in a remote corner of Montana, covered in ticks), and a few crack head neighbors. A must have for your magical survival kit!

3 Double Action black and white soy candles: Burn these double action candles to undo a jinx, crossed condition, or a string of bad luck, and bring positive energy into your life.
We created these with the spell caster in mind, as commercial double action candles are, unfortunately, made the wrong way up (and have been for many years). This requires the spell caster to buttress the candle, exposing the wick on the bottom and leveling the top. Our candles are made the right way up, and require no buttressing.

This set is perfect for getting rid of the nasties in your life, and making way for the season's positive influence to flow and flower.

To enter, leave a comment on this blog post, and we'll pick the winner with a random generator.
