Snakey and I spent most of the weekend gardening - largely because wanted a bench....over the last few weeks that garden has become a delight - I love sitting out there, and the bench makes it just perfect (oh well as perfect as a 12 x 15 ft city garden can be) we have a mixture of flowers - I'm growing some just to pick and bring into the house - and a couple of days ago I was able to pick a big vase of roses and sweet williams - and some for colour in the garden, and then veggies - tomatoes, potatoes, aubergine (the snails ate my squash), spinach, wild strawberries, raspberries, onions and several kinds of salad, plus lots of herbs.

Sammy is not impressed. Clearly he does not like nature except for a nice brisk walk once a day. We put a rug out for him, but mostly he stands anxiously and pokes us - "errrr humans...what are we doing outside? can we go inside now, it's nice comfy and there's no nasty bugs and green things....please?" After his failures at catching rabbits, perhaps I am going to have to except that he's a city dog at heart.

I still want something for the kitchen window sill - something pretty and colourfull that likes full shade - any ideas?

somehow I need to make space in the next day or so for more offerings from my mother - she's bringing me baby french lavender and sweet williams and more spinach - a few weeks further on than mine so I can eat it now.

and yes, I have my bench - I am doing my morning sitting practice surrounded by beauty often with a cup of tea made with herbs from the garden.

yes, I can ramble on about the garden at length - I love gardening, I love the soil on my hands and under my finger nails, the smell of water on the hot stones, twigs in my hair and green things all around me.

Yes, I promised pictures!

the garden - yup, this is pretty much it - or the best shot I can get given the lack of space.

baby salad - they said sew it thickly.....I think I will spread it out more next time

I've posted about Sunrise WitchCamp before, and will be doing so again - it is a project that is dear to my heart. It is the first reclaiming witchcamp in the UK that allows children, and the first Witchcamp in Europe that allows children of any age!

This is the first year for Sunrise, and we're operating on a shoestring - the organising team are financially liable for camp, and it would be really rather wonderful to have a little extra money to give ourselves some breathing space, and also to be able to offer scholarships to people who would love to come and just can't afford it.

So!

I have made 5 wonderful dragon charm bracelets - one for each of the five elements, that you can win!

Each bracelet is a none of a kind - I will never be making any more like this, the chains are silver plated and 8 inches long (they can be reduced in length) charms are tibetan silver or lead free pewter with glass or wood beads, of which some on each bracelet are vintage.

Bracelets like these normally sell for between £25 and £50

We will be raffling the bracelets - the draw will be at midsummer, yes! time is passing, and the draw is next week, so if you want a ticket (or several) buy them now or loose out on the chance to win one of these wonderful bracelets

£1 will get you one ticket, £5 will get you six, £10 will get you 12



please put in the title "dragon bracelet raffle" and we will send you an email with your ticket numbers in, and notify you if you are a winner of course!

If you are buying tickets for someone else, please let us know in a separate email (or we'll get confused!)

Dragon Bones with Raven and Margit

Since the ancient days when Dragons were free to fly over the face of the earth, human seers have used the shapes and bones of the earth to answer their deep wonderings. Divination has taken on many forms over the ages, a handful of bones thrown into the sand, whispers in dreams, tea leaves in a cup, runes carved into stone or oghams burnt on wood, pendulums and scrying bowls and tarot cards.

Together we will watch the shapes in the clouds, the direction of bird flight, the ripples of wind on the water, we will look for clues in our dreams and search for patterns in the rocks and bones of the land. We will read cards, runes and the fall of rocks onto the earth. Using traditional tools of divination and perhaps ones that you will find for yourselves, we will learn how to speak to our inner dragons - the part of ourselves that is fierce and magical, wild and free and which burns in our hearts, minds and souls. Connected with our inner dragons we will learn to listen deeper to the land around us and hear to the secrets it has to tell.

We will ask ourselves, ask our inner dragon what it needs from us to nourish it and allow it to grow, and for us to grow with it. We will ask it what offerings we need to make and what offerings we need to make to the land around us to deepen our work. We will listen to our own dragons and their deepest desires, and listen to the voices of the dragons standing in circle with us, and the voice of the land itself.

We welcome all to this path who come with open hearts and minds. You do not need to have any experience of divination methods to enjoy this path and to fully participate in the path work, though if you have cards/runes/ogham/other forms of divination tools please bring them along with any art supplies that you feel you might like to use. Please bring comfortable footwear and something to sit on if the grounds wet. Weather permitting we will hope to spend time each day out of doors.



Dragon's Gold:
The Alchemy of Self, The Power of Storytelling and the Third Road with Chelidon and Fortuna

The dragon holds the rarest of treasures buried in its cave, as we often hold our talents, desires and beauty deep within, guarded and buried far from the light. Each of us is born with a unique birthright, possessing tales and truths no one else can tell. We all hold great power and paradox within us, but too often these precious treasures are kept deeply hidden.

In this path we will work with the deep and ancient magic of threes -- the alchemical mystery of the third road. Threes have immense power, and form the basis of the alchemy of self. Yin and Yang, light and shadow, inner and outer -- we all hold the possibility of the union of opposites within us. We all have contrasts, contradictions and inner conflicts, and we will learn to hold and wield these paradoxical aspects in ways which do not involve turning away from or cutting off parts of ourselves, but instead, honoring and acknowledging all the parts of who we are. The sacred marriage of opposites thus creates a wholly new and precious element, gleaming gold in all its strength and beauty, as we are transformed in the alchemical fires of life.

Together we will explore storytelling and myth and the eternal magic of time -- past, present, and future, was, is and will be. Who were you, who are you, and who will you be? How can you use your Will, Intent, and Desire to guide you? Using the world-changing power of story and myth we will delve into the dragon's cave and connect to our inner store of lore, which we'll mine for the paradoxes that will create pure gold. The dragon, fierce guardian of the treasure of truth, will guide our way along the third road to wisdom.

Please bring a journal and writing instrument, and if you like, divination tools or art materials to Path.




Discovering the Dragon
with Cassandra and Halo

Within us all, lies a dragon.
A dragon dreaming in the dark.
Let us wake the dreaming dragon,
And house it in our hearts!

Join us as we spread our wings with the dragons and soar through the blue skies of our dreams... join us as we find our dragon within and make friends with the dragons all around!

Through fun and laughter, song and dance, arts and crafts we will spend our path time playing with dragons! We will meet the Earth-Dragons of the land around us, and learn to hear what they have to say as we honour them by building altars and making offerings... and we'll each craft a magical Dragon Wand, a wand of fire, to take home!

Just as the earth is full of dragons waiting to awake, we each hold a dragon spirit inside us. What does your dragon-spirit look like? What does it most like to do? We will learn ways to uncover and awaken that inner dragon and to make space for this truth, strength, and compassion in our lives. It may have been a long time since we danced with dragons, but be brave and know they want to be our friends too!

Come! Find the dragon within!
What colour do your scales shine?
Come! Meet the dragons without!
In friendship our lives will entwine!

Through practical activities, the children's path will be an opportunity for the younger members of our community to get a sense of the gifts they have, and it will allow them space to make their own magic. We will also provide them with tools to take home, so that the magic can continue long after camp is over!

We welcome all young Dragons willing to make friends with Dragons, open your heart and be brave. Bring warm clothes, comfortable outdoor footwear, and your favorite magical tools and art supplies. And, if you want something special to create your Dragon Wand – your magical connection to fire and dragon power - don´t forget to bring it to camp.

These would be on amazon but amazon has decided to block my seller account owing to a prick leaving negative feedback, since I have such low turnover on my amazon sales, that gives me 100% negative feedback and is enough to close me down - sure, I can appeal the decision....but hey - we're dealing with amazon here. gits.

confessions of a pagan nun - Kate Horsley, perfect condition (un read) save for small red dot on the bottom £5 including p&p

The Embroidery Stitch Bible - Betty Barnden - also close to perfect hardback £8 including postage (it's heavy) - I realise I tend to make stitches up as i go along, and traditional embroidery isn't for me.

Soul Collage: An intuitive Collage Process for individuals and groups - Seena B Frost - brand new, never read £10 including p&p (amazon.co.uk have it for £11 not including postage). While I love other peoples collage work, I have realized I detest it as an art medium for myself, I will remain happy to admire other peoples work.

more books and music doubtless coming over the next few days.

I'm not a big perfume person - I like what I like and don't like anything more complex than err single notes - rose, amber, linden, bluebell, violet (please not mixed together)

thus, due the needing to raise money I have a odd collection for sale - offers considered, shipping £1.50 anywhere in the world. I'm happy to do a deal on postage if people want several.

if they don't sell here, I will be listing them on ebay, but I will need to open a new account to do so - to avoid messing with business records.

For better descriptions of their smells I'd suggest heading to the appropriate website

BPAL £5 each

The Raven - 5ml, full bottle, sniffed only - about 3 years old
Yew trees - 5ml, full bottle, sniffed only - about 3 years old

Lush solid perfumes £2 (5 in the shop)

Fever - smells of carnations - sniffed only
Potion - smells nice - sniffed only

Demeter - pick-me-up sprays 30mls

Lilac - what it says on the label, New, - it's pretty close (I think) I've tested it once - £8

Earl Grey Tea - ditto - I've decided I'd rather drink the tea than smell of it, this one's also only been tested lightly, but the label is a bit scruffy, and one of the old style rounded bottles rather than the newer square ones - £6

Fraser Fir - smells close to christmas trees - again, I like them in the living room, not on my skin - old style bottle again, lightly tested, label fine

Ok, this is going to break my heart if it sells. I spent about 6 months 3 years ago collecting the charms and putting it together - I wore it in ritual at camp in 2007 and not worn it since, since while I love charm bracelets, I rarely ever wear them, and I would rather it be worn, not hung on the wall.

and right now I urgently need to free up some cash, and this is one of my more valuable pieces that I can part with (more random items will be following). I would like $150, it is closer to $200, possibly more given the time and effort I went to hunting down appropriate charms.

This one a sterling silver chain with a padlock clasp and safety chain (unhooked for the picture) there is a charm for each of the major arcara, plus a little goddess to start a pentacle, athame, wand and chalice for the suits to end with. Each charm is is attached to a sterling silver clasp rather than a jump ring directly onto the bracelet, so the charms can be detached and used for divination - throwing the charms rather like runes.

The bible charm (hirophrant) opens to show pages of tiny text, the skeleton (death) is articulated, and the globe (the world) spins.

Here, is he long promised Selkie Bracelet - yea, it's taken me a while to get pictures taken. Sterling silver chain with sterling silver seal mother and pup charms with a central seal pup charms with labradorite beads,and tibetan silver moons, stars and spirals. It's gorgeous and there will be only one like it. I have enough of the seal charms or two more bracelets, which will be similar, but on silver plated chain, and without the seal pup charm.

the findings are steel so they won't dis-colour over time

This one will probably end up on etsy, I'm offering it here first. Each bracelet will be accompanied with an original (by me) selkie story, once destined for an ambitious project fell through, I dug it out of the ashes, and saw that it was actually good.

This one will be $75, buy it from me, here and that includes postage, buy it from etsy and it won't! This one is sold already, I'll be making another in a week or so, which will be around the $60 mark, so let me know if you're interested - I'm amazed at the speed that this one has sold.
