Once Upon a Fairy Tale )O(

Merry meet all,

I had a ton of fun at the Once Upon a Fairy Tale Faire. I dressed as the Lavender Fairy. I suffered it out in a corset, the costume and wings. I absolutely loved the Faire.I had the most wonderful time.

 

I was sorted by the Sorting Hat (same one as at Hogwarts0. I got Hufflepuff. I then set out on having fun and wreaking mischief, though I had a lot of the former, not the latter… well….

So I set out to see the different vendor’s pretty wares ok some scary. There were great swords too heavy for me to lift, fudge for me to sample (mm), costumes, jewels, elf ears, leather wares, deer and horse skulls, herbal teas, Mad Hatter Tea Parties, and so many other wonderful treasures. They were all made possible because of the crafts people’s dedication. There was a huge castle made of balloons, yup I know, a large, mock fencing tournaments, and lectures about the herb mandrake, having faeries in your home. It was so much fun.

I bumped into Cathy Kempton, my first witchcraft mentor, and a few other people I knew. I was delighted to see her again. This kid walked in and wanted to know where the faires were- so the father asked me. Yup I was a fairy. A lot of people loved my costume and even took pics of me. If they only knew how I suffered in it……

I got a beautiful fairy butterfly necklace, a vial of fairy dust, a fairy offering of a teapot and tiny tea cups, incense, herbal death teas, I sampled teas and fudges, and was even treated to tea and cakes by the Red Queen in the Mad hatter tea party – I got a ticket from soneone when I wasn’t supposed to have a ticket.!!!!!! I curtsied in front of the Red Queen!!!

i did collect biz cards. Good thing I didn’t have a $100 could easily have spent it there on such magical wonderful treasures. I took many pics. Doing it all over again next year. I loved every moment of the magial faire. I would do it all over again. I felt truly pretty and light with the wings and skirt. I fairy blessed everyone- my friends, children and some adults too.

 


There were many fairy homes made of moss and this stuff. I fairy blessed everyone. I had pizza and pop for lunch I Sure suffered in a corset and wings.What a time I had trying to sit in a chair or in my friend’s car or even get through a door way in wings. Oy or even sit on a toilet or even wrap my shawl around my shoulders. We visited Mike at work and we found out he wanted the glow in the dark ouija board. So we went back to the fairy event, bought it for him, and gave it to him at the witch shop. His grandmother forbid Mike to own one so we had to return it.

It was hard going in a costume. I leaned forward during rides in the car with wings on, I perched carefully in a chair at the fairy event, I tipped my wings way forward, put on my shawl and then stood up and got my wings back on my back and adjusted my shawl in the bathroom. Eventually I learned to remove the wings in the car on rides. I had two necklaces. When I got out of the wings, the wings caught on my crown twice and on my outfit. I had to get detangled. Ugh what a time. I would do it all over again.

Blessed Be Lady Spiderwitch

Finale of the Dark Season

Merry Meet All,

I am of mixed feelings of this time of year. As any self-respecting Witch worth her salt will admit, the Crone’s time of year rules all. I love autumn and fall. I love Mabon to Samhain. I like it that it gets dark early at night, awakening in me my darker true nature.

This post is to be a bit different than my other recent posts. But one cannot have dark without light and vice versa. Without the Crone, there is no rebirth. The Crone is now morphing to the Maiden. Beltaine is the next Sabbat in the Wheel of the Year.

Hence my sadness of the return of the light and the fading of the Crone. I recently picked up an amazing book that I hope some of you are familiar with. The book is called Nocturnal Witchcraft by Konstantinos. I love this book, having at long last found my kindred spirit. At last, someone understands me. He talks about nightkind, which I consider myself to be, and how it should not be feared. He sheds light on working nocturnal magick at night. At last. I decked out my altar according to the method provided in the book. I found what I need and did not need to buy any magick tools. I have to get candles and incense, but that does not need to be expensive. I have a black velvet hemmed altar cloth. So the silver and black look beautiful. I have not added any of this to my BOS yet, but I do plan to.

I love to perform magick at night. I feel alive when I do. I might need the assistance of caffeine, but that is a small price to pay. I like this book because like I said, I always felt alive at night. I perform most of my rituals indoors, with the exception of my backyard garden, but there is a different energy indoors. We are limited by indoors. I could bring an elemental object in from outside, such as herbs, bark, seasalt, salt water, stones, tree leaves (taken in kind), or even grass clippings. The point is that I can bring an item inside and draw energy from it for my magickal workings. The book can also provide guidance when and where I need it.

As you can see from earlier posts, I love Samhain. I like cawing of crows, toads who swim by lilypads, crafty cunning spiders, cats, horses, swans, and owls. I do not fear the darker creatures that roam the earth. I love the creaking of tree boughs and years ago, I forced myself to overcome my fear of cemeteries. I crossed a graveyard and haven’t feared them since. I know that book is not for the faint of heart, but Witchcraft is not for the faint of heart. The true and fierce heart of a Witch is his or her strength. Facing your fears can strengthen you as well as truly knowing yourself before you delve into darker magick.

I have been excited to see cheerful and ambitious sprouts emerge in the clayish soil of my garden. I know the plants died back to be reborn in spring. I know the buds shall open and splendor the trees with greenery. But the time of the dark half of the year is my most favourite and I await -somewhat patiently- the return of Mabon. If I am patient, it’s return will be more appreciated.

I would love to know if some of you out there have read this book and also share a kindred sense as you read it. Let me know!! Till then, many blessings on your magick and your gardens, or indoor gardens.

Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch )O(
