DIY Wind-catcher Mobile Roundup
Windcatchers are a beautiful way to collect and display objects of importance to you and your craft. The pictures above are just a few of a myriad of ideas that could be put to use in the creation of a windcatcher.
Windcatchers can be made of wood, metal, or any other material. They can exist in any number of shapes, and hang herbs, crystals, candles, shells, glass, bottles, dried fruits (such as orange or cranberry), feathers, beads, twine, paper, chains, rope, bones, teeth, wire, flowers, doilies, crochet, leaves, bells, leather, ribbon, keys, gears, lace, fabric or flags, even spoons and forks, acorns and nuts, among so many other things I could not count them all. Found objects, craft objects, shiny, dull, new, old. Windcatchers can embody a certain season, ritual, or goal.They can include elaborate macrame or simple tying and glue. Even such things as dream catchers can be incorporated into a windcatcher.
The possibilities are endless and gorgeous. For more inspo, check out windcatchers on Pintrest.

Advice on starting to work with Morpheus
I was thinking about starting to work more with Morpheus. Do you have any advice?
Do I have any advice? Mostly just start talking to Him to learn what He’d like you to do and learn Hellenic practices so you can honor Him properly as a Greek god. Gosh, asking me for advice. Alright, let’s see if I can help you further than that basic dulldrum that I’m sure you’ve heard from everyone else. ;D
When To Cleanse Your Tarot Deck.
Making a Kitchen Cabinet Abundance Jar
- a small jar
- kosher salt
- a few coins
1. Take a small jar and fill half full with kosher salt.
2. Add a few coins (pennies are fine) to the jar, then fill the remainder of the jar with alfalfa.
3. Screw the lid on tightly. Holding the jar in your hands, visualize your cupboards, pantry, and refrigerator full of healthy foods and say,
Bless this home with abundance. May it always be filled with enough to share.
4. Place the jar to the back of a shelf and let it be. Once a year, refill the jar and restate the prayer.
As promised, the place I live in for now. And my silly kitties :)
A broom dropping in front of the door means company before the day is over.
Herb of the Week-Pine
Among all the trees belonging to the coniferous genera, the genus Pinus is perhaps the hugest and most significant. Precisely speaking, this genus encompasses as many as 95 species and several ranges and crossbreeds. Trees belonging to the genus Pinus are extensively dispersed, especially in the Northern Hemisphere where they are found growing naturally from the sea level to the Arctic or Antarctic limit of tree growth (timberline). Pines may be found almost everywhere from Scandinavia to North Africa, from Alaska to Nicaragua and Siberia to Sumatra. While a number of pine species like the Scotch pine are extensively dispersed ranging from Scotland in Great Britain to Siberia, there are several species that are found growing in very restricted locations. For instance, the species called Canary Island pine is only found growing in the wild in the Canary Islands, while only a small number of trees belonging to the Torrey pine family are only found growing in two localities in California.
