Pretty Sky Viewing

Pretty Sky Viewing

Tomorrow night will be another Venus-Moon conjunction. Yes, we had a spectacular one with the crescent moon in December, but this one is special too. Our beautiful crescent Moon will be mesmerizing-ly close to Venus. Why is it special? Venus is at maximum brightness, being twenty times brighter than Sirius, the brightest star in the sky. It can even cast subtle shadows on the ground! All this from the reflection of the Sun’s light on the planet. For North Americans, […]

Stevie <3

Stevie <3

OK, I love Stevie. And I have posted before that I believe she’s an undercover witch. This is an old video but….she all but admits here and says in not so many words, “I am a White Witch, not a Black Magic Witch”. Would anyone care to discuss after watching this? This is my idea of totally mindless and frivolous blogging, but I love my Stevie. BTW, I have my Fleetwood Mac tickets all set for April. Waaaaahoooo!

Chakra Cleansing and Energy

Chakra Cleansing and Energy

Thanks to the wonderful article that SunTiger wrote, Easy Chakra Rehab, I was inspired to do some further practice with my amethyst pendulum. I have worked with my pendulum for years after first hearing about it in ’92 from Deepok Chopra. I have never gotten further than practicing swinging it with my mind and asking it yes or no questions. I’ve always known that it was capable of so much more and after reading Sun Tiger’s article I grabbed DH […]

Minty Mermaid Cold Cream

Minty Mermaid Cold Cream

Making a mess in the kitchen again! I made up my favorite cold cream. Its luxurious and moisturizing for removing my make up. I use straight olive oil for removing my mascara and this for the rest of my face. A year or so ago I went from oily skin to medium/dry skin and this concoction does the trick. It glides off my make up and dirt from the day while super-moisturizing my skin. The aloe soothes and helps cut […]

Nightstand Tag

Nightstand Tag

I got this idea from my subscription to Discover magazine. In each issue they interview a famous scientist of the moment and the end of the interview always asks them for a list of what is on their nightstand at that very moment. Leave it to a GEEK! It’s always my favorite part of the interview. So interesting at times. So Valentine’s Day (which was very nice BTW) morning I thought it would be a fun idea to try with […]

Done with Transferring Posts

Done with Transferring Posts

I am finally done transferring posts from old blog to this one. That was no easy job. Now the time jumping around will end. I just didn’t like the idea of having some of my older posts residing somewhere else. I’ve been blogging since 2001 in one place or another. My posts may not be numerous but they go back to the beginning of blog-time, so there’s a lot of history there for me. I like to look back on […]

Beachy Mermaid Mailbox

Beachy Mermaid Mailbox

Here is my beachy mermaid mailbox I’ve been working on! DH and I have fallen in love with it. This very same mailbox was so ugly before. Its the same 1963 mailbox that came with the house. This is how mail gets delivered to Mermaids. Teeeeheeee!

Full Moon

Full Moon

Once again, all I did for the Full Moon was cleanse a few of my rocks & crystals. I only did the ones I’ve been using the most lately.  I did admire the Full Moon quite a bit since it was just so gorgeous on that night! LOVELY!

Mermaid Inspiration Galore

Mermaid Inspiration Galore

Thanks to both Sage Moonstone’s Hocus Pocus blog and Little Faerie Tales’ blog , I have been inspired in a big way!  After reading these two posts a fire was lit under me that touched my mermaid desires. Let me explain a bit. I have had a mermaid motif for my master bedroom bath in mind for some time to go along with my beachy theme in the bedroom, but I wasn’t sure how to go about it exactly. I […]
