I’m enchanted by frogs, daisies and skulls. Aren’t these earrings just lovely?
when in doubt, frogs daisies, and skulls are usually a safe bet ;-)

After saying that, let me move on to a bit that might make me sound like an ungrateful jerk.
I have very caring friends. One of them emailed me a few months before I turned thirty-four, and asked what I wanted for my birthday. “The Mother aspect of my Goddess really needs a Horned God,” I replied.
A few weeks later I got a package from my friend. I opened it with excitement (and a big knife) and found this:
“Really?” I said. “Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam for a Witch’s altar? Are you freaking serious!”
Thank goodness she wasn’t serious. The statue was a gag gift. She wanted to hear what I would say after I opened the box. I said a lot of things, but that would be a different post. My friend made it all better by later sending me this lovely Horned God.
He goes perfect with the Mother, doesn’t he?
We have been friends for a long time, so she always knows what to get me. The truth is that a person who reads Pagan Culture doesn’t need to know me all that long to figure out the kinds of things I like. For instance, I did some ghostwriting for an author friend. She has helped me in the past, so I didn’t feel right charging her for the work. She wanted to give me something anyway, and she made my winter with the practical and super cute pairs of boots I talked about in my “Friday Lavender” post.
I can’t say the same about some my closest friends and certain family members. They are not the best on the giving the right things department. Last All Hallow’s Eve, I got three copies of Kim Harrison’s Once Dead, Twice Shy; two copies of Llewellyn Witches’ Datebook, an illustrated Christian Bible and some gifts I still have no clue what to do with—I actually don’t know what they are.
This year, I’ve decided to make my wish list public, in hope that my darling family and friends will take a look-see when in doubt. I’ve even added things other than books to it. Okay, so I revised the list after someone made fun of me for wanting only books. Here are some of the things currently on wish list:
|Oracle of Shadow & Light by Jasmine Becket-Griffin|
Colorful Drip Candles
Mythologies of the World by Michael McKenzie
So… how many naked Adams do you think I’ll get this year? And what’s on your winter holidays’ wish list, my Wicked Luvs?
And are you wondering who won Dracula in Love?
The Wicked lucky winner is KimR
Congrats! Please send me your mailing info, and I’ll sent your book ;-)
