Thieving Bigots

A couple of days ago I got wind that there were some neo-Nazis/goosesteppers using this photo I took a couple of years back on their social media to promote hate. To me Brigid represents the fires of the hearth, community and hospitality. So the exact opposite to hate, xenophobia and all other forms of bigotry. 

Should you happen to see any photos that I have taken to promote these things, please know that I do not condone them. As for the bigots, use your own photos as you are not welcome to mine.

Finding Lost Treasure

While doing some deep cleaning in preparation for Imbolc, I have come across some forgotten treasures. It is probably safe to say that I have a thing for hagstones, which are already scattered all over my home, so what are a dozen more? I found these pretties that I had stashed away for some reason or another, which can again enjoy the light of day on shelf that seemed to be made just for them. 

Perhaps my most happy find, a crow's foot that I scored in a swap a few years that I had fitted with a clear quartz point, a gift from someone dear. The intention was to make a devotional piece with it along with some raw amber beads that were also found again. Embarrassingly, that was over three years back. Hopefully I can get that done before I forget about it again.

If I were to be rewarded like this every time I did a deep cleaning, I would definitely do it more often.
