Hello again....

Hi everyone...I apologise for not posting more consistently....it has not been one of the best years for my family.....we lost two of our loved ones very tragically..... I will be writing more about it later but I want to wait until after the holidays.... For now I want to focus on the meaning of this holiday season....Already it has become so commercialized I want to scream!!  I saw Christmas decorations out on the shelves three weeks before Halloween... Like everything else in our society  it has become for profit only..... This is also a time of year where the depression & suicide rates spike....
so it is time to step back & take a breath....

I have decided to spend this month recapturing the spirit of this season....I have found over the last few years that combining elements of Solstice, Yule & Christmas makes for a time much more spiritual & magical....  

I thought I would spend this month sharing what I am doing....So to start I thought I would get my presents for everyone finished first....Not a Black Friday or Cyber Monday kind but handmade gifts... So yesterday I went into the woods to collect moss... I have had some admiration of our terrariums the Hubby & I have created so I am making two hanging ones for gifts... they will look similar to this but I want to create something special for each of the young women I am making these for....

For the next two weeks, the moss will be in quarantine to make sure anything moldy or bad is discarded.....I will post the finished pieces then.... Here are some pictures of our latest creation....the only thing we bought was the organic potting soil & charcoal...the terrarium was picked up by the Hubby at the local transfer station & he made the wooden top & the plants & bark came from the woods....

 The beginning.....
adding some steps for the fairies...
The roof... the Hubby is going to put a band of iron around the edge for me...I love iron!!  
 early morning sun.....


the arbor...
some mica for a fairy ring....

which lights up at night under a LED light....
If you haven't tried one yet I highly recommend this...
especially if you have kids or Grandbabies... 
They love it...
