“A Different Kind of May Basket”

Any ideas of how you’ll celebrate spring? I have plans! One of them comes from the beautiful pages of Pagan Living.

Yep, The Witch of the Howling Creek has brought together a group of wonderful people who are painting, writing, crafting, spelling… spring with magical colors, shapes and words. Is that too presumptuous to say when I’m one of the people magic(ing) spring? I hope not.

I delighted in every article, and I hope some of you enjoy reading the one I wrote, “A Different Kind of May Basket,” page 27. But I must admit that I’m in love with “Tea Time & Old World Eggs for Ostara” by Andrea Brand. Take a look, aren’t these “mod-podged” papered eggs simply fantastic?
You will find Andrea’s article and many other jewels in the 2012 spring issue of Pagan LivingGo take a look-see, my Wicked Luvs. And once you are there… why not subscribe… that way you won’t miss the summer issue ;-)

    Wow I had a very interesting read, thank you for that! To start off my morning w/ such beautiful pictures, and words. And to find out about your library appearance was intriguing.  I grew up in the library (per-say), so much I take for granted. Yes I do just love those not bright pink or pastel colored eggs. It makes me want to cover some eggs now, (really) Thank you for enlightening my live! I don't write but I craft and if you ever feel like it and wish to check out my blog the addy is: http://dontbeaprude.wordpress.com/
    Right now I am having a problem w/ my blinkies on my side bar half are showing where they should (on the right hand side) and then the rest are at the bottom? But at least my posts are showing. Anyways hope you have a wonderful wicked day!
    Peace,

  9. OMG! Thank you so much for the link to this beautiful magazine and I loved your article. I could just feel your mixed emotions which flowed at that point in time.  Americans take so much for granted and it shames me to admit that there have been times I have caught myself doing it as well. It is odd, but lately I have been giving a lot of thought to the fact that we may have too much and in so many ways it has harmed rather than helped us. We forget to appreciate the simplicity of life and the small miracles in every day.  I long to slow down and just be and yet bills and responsibilities seem to whip me from behind while pulling from ahead.

    I love to see life through your eyes and heart. It always gives me fresh perspective in ways I need it most.  Stay remarkable, my lovely friend.

    I loved your story!  I remember you posting here some time ago about your love of reading and your excitement about first discovering a lending library.  It still makes my eyes water reading your words.  I have always (and still do) have such a deep love for libraries.  I go to my tiny local one often.  I just love the smell of the books - giggle!

    I hope you will continue to write for the magazine - I always enjoy your stories!

  11. I stopped by your blog and LOVED the colors and textures. The content is so great that I hardly noticed the button chaos. I doubt I would have seen it if you hadn't mentioned it. Thanks for sharing your blog.

  12. You make me feel forever remarkable. I might have to bring you home with me ;-)

  13. I was very happy when Tanae picked that one. I love everything I write, but when the story is about books, well... the love grows ;-)

    I will write for the summer issue, too. Tanae is so easy to work with, and one shouldn't waste a great opportunity. I hope to see you there, too.

    Egads, don't I have enough to read?  :0)  Going to check it out now - that looks like too much fun to miss.

  15. What a beautiful e-magazine... signed up! Loved your story too and I've got to say, not everyone is a reading fan. I've always been a bookworm, but out of my two sons, only the youngest enjoys reading but he's nowhere near the bookworm I am, BUT he only became an avid reader when Harry Potter first came out, so maybe you are right; your little princess may grow to love books when she's a bit older :)

  18. The little girl in the story is a relative, and I'm hoping for the same.

    Thanks goodness My Little Princess is as addicted to reading as I am. She asks the tooth faery for books!
