D is for Deipnon (again!)

This was last years D topic too, but it was Hekate’s Deipnon a few days ago and so I saved this brief little post for today! I did my usual ritual in which I cleaned my shrines and cleansed my living … Continue reading

Hekate’s Deipnon and other activities!

I have stayed true to my word recently about getting my shit together again with worship. I decided to kick start this month with a proper observance for Hekate’s Deipnon, the first in a long time. I spent the afternoon of that day doing … Continue reading

New books!

  I am crazy exited about these, and can’t wait to get my teeth into them! Both of them are absolutely huge, with really impressive reference lists that I want to read! I haven’t bought a decent (non-scientific at least) academic text … Continue reading

Things I should do more, but don’t

I am actually alive! The stress of work and exams has abated, and I get my results in just a few days time. The thing is, I haven’t written an entry here because I simply have nothing to write about. … Continue reading

Evil Eye

I went to London at the weekend with my boyfriend. One of the stops we made was to Camden town, and much to his disdain I spent many hours searching through little junk shops for treasure. I came out with … Continue reading

C is for Charms and Trinkets

C is for Charms and trinkets

Even before deciding to actively pursue a path of witchcraft, I obsessively collected small trinkets that I found on my travels.

This grainy, poor quality photo shows just a few of the things that I have picked up along the way. I keep them around just in case they come in handy one day, and a few of the things already have intended uses.

In the top left is a large key that I dug up at the allotment. I plan to incorporate it into a house protection charm once I have cleaned it up a little. Directly underneath it is a small key charm that was given to me by a friend.

Below the keys are three crystals, Selenite, Bloodstone and Calcite. The first two were gifts and I found the calcite whilst on the beach. I don’t really like to buy gemstones because you cannot always be certain of their origin and the environmental impact of their mining, however I do have quite a large collection of stones that I have acquired in other ways.

Underneath the crystals are a collection of Iron nails that I, once again, dug out of the ground. The largest is about 5 inches in length.

To the lower right of the image lies some seashells that I have picked up on a beach over the years, and in the upper right hand corner there are 3 hagstones aquired from the same beach. Hagstones are one of my favourite charms and I have a large collection of them. One of the stones in this photo is a pendulum, and the other a protective necklace.

This photo was taken by me for the Pagan Blog Project.
