"Can LOVE travel back in time and heal a broken heart?... I'd like to think so.   
There are some things I know for certain:    
Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder.
Keep ROSEMARY by your garden gate.
 Plant lavender for luck"

Roses are worth the thorns.

"Being NORMAL is not necessarily a virtue.. "

Make room for Fae.

Twinkle lights are always a good idea.

costumes are a necessity.

destinations may be in more than one direction.

find comfort in rain.

"Magic ... has power because you BELIEVE it does."

sometimes it's best to throw off conventional formality and...

be as silly as possible.
*purchase me here*

love what you do.

"Twelve's BETTER"
*purchase us here*

stand in awe of the world.

smiling makes more than just you happy.

"There's a little WITCH in every woman"
*purchase me here*

karma will care for  betrayals.

trust in your guardians.

celebrate change.

look for guidance from your elders.

find strength in silence.

do with intention.

believe that the stars will guide you.

"And fall in LOVE whenever you can."

live well.
love each other.

There are some things I know for certain:
"Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder.
Keep rosemary by your garden gate.
Plant lavender for luck." <----I wrote that down after I heard Sally say it in the movie, I liked it so much! ;)

I had to leave you a note to let you know that I have finally posted about your fabulous the give-away that I won during the Mad Tea Party. I found a darling small birdcage and he lives there while he watches looking over my shoulder as I work in my studio. We have become artful collaborators. I hope that you like what I have done with him.

Annabelle said...

Sometimes arriving late gives you the best surprises.
I adore your trail of virtuous words to live by.
I shall keep them in mind always. The photos and artwork all Magical.

Thank you for the lovely post.

Susan said...

AWESOME, awesome post!! it was MAGICAL :)

questions: I am new at there a spell to have Kharma be working?

How do I find out who my guardian(s) is?

I was told the best book for me to read first is "Wicca for dummies" would you agree with that?
