Beechwood Sugar Skull Kitchen Wand


I’ve been known not to mind concocting a protection bath in an empty tomato paste can, or using the nearest fire-face surface to burn my cleansing herbs. Yet, I have a favorite brewing pot, and a lucky incense burner. Sometimes, though, I just want a little something extra. Witches in Fiction 2013… to the Bone’s 6th giveaway, sponsored by The Whimsical Pixie, brings a lovely tool that serves that extra bit ;-)    

Yes, my Wicked Luvs, get ready to “Stir up some magick with this Kitchen Wand featuring a sugar skull and elements of the skull decorations on the bowl, set in pyrography. Usually a candy treat, Sugar Skulls are a Mexican tradition, created as a tribute to the memory and life of a loved that has crossed the bridge to the Summerland. They represent joy, happiness and the memories treasured of time spent together.

Made from Beechwood, this spoon is heavy duty and totally usable for cooking; the angled top is great for getting into corners and is perfect for non-stick surfaces. The sugar skull design also makes a nice altar decoration for Samhain.

Whether you are stirring the cauldron or the crock pot, do it magickally with a Kitchen Wand!”

  2. Oh, decoration - that's too pretty to dunk in the sauce! It would hang on the wall near my hearth altar. And occasionally I might wave it meaningfully when things need a good stirring up. ;)

  4. Well, anything in my house *can* be a magical tool! ;) But if I could make them do anything, I wouldn't mind animating some brooms and mops and dusters to take care of a few chores on their own! lol.

  5. What a beautiful spoon! I think I'd hang it up, year round, with a bit of colorful ribbon. I love her Made to Order Flower Pentacle Altar Box, and if I could turn anything into a magickal tool, it would be my mop and vacuum so I could magickally clean my floors :)

    1. It seems everybody wants magical house cleaning. Too funny.

  6. That is the coolest spoon I've ever seen - Sugar skulls, love them! I also like her beautiful pentagram boxes.
    Your extra question is an easy one - I would make my vacuum cleaner (or broom!) clean the house on its own. I loathe cleaning, but I also loathe living in dirt.

    1. Oh, and I forgot - I would use it for cooking. It would make a rockin' addition to my kitchen! Cinnamon man always says he can taste the love in my food, with this spoon hopefully he could also be tasting a little magic :)

    2. More magical house cleaning! lol

      And I bet Cinnamon man would be all for a little magic tasting ;-)

  7. I would sooooo use this to cook with. I consider all food stuffs to be magical, and cook dishes especially to suit the mood I want to induce in my home on a daily basis (and I always use a wooden spoon!!!!) :D XXX

  11. I would use the spoon to stir up herbal mixes. My favorite item is the Apothecary Cabinet...just love rows of bottles :) Plus, it's compact enough to fit into my traveling trunk ;) I would turn my laptop into a magical tool. That way it would never be 'infected' & I could use it as an interdimensional portal.

    1. You made me giggle. I can see your trunk all packed up, and spoon on top in case you need to concoct something up real quick ;-)

  13. From the WhimsicalPixie page, I LOVE everything but I'd have to say my fav is the Brigids Cross Imbolc Altar Tile.

  14. It may be cliche but if I could turn a household item into a magikal tool it would be my broom. It would constantly be sweeping away negativity, and sweeping in all things positive. My home would be in constant balance and harmony and all beautiful 'beings' would be welcome.

    1. Not to mention that it would be perfect these days... with the price of gas and all!

  15. Hope you remember me lol.

    I would use it when mixing my dry rubs, and I do love her little fairy bottles. If I could turn anything in my house into a magical tool, I would choose my favorite necklace, and I would want it to have the ability to calm and protect me in all situations.

    I do miss you my love. I hung your gift to me in my bead cubby, and it makes me smile every time I see it, not to mention that those words speak so true lol.

  18. If I could turn anything in my house into a magic tool it would be the antique truck in my magikal office. I would make it hold a limitless amount so I could store all my witchy things where my cats can't get to them!

  19. Oh my, it is so pretty it would be hard to use; yet it has the perfect shape for getting hard to reach pieces. I think I would use but not with anything that could stain or damage it and then, when it is not in use, hang it on a special hook for decor and pleasure in enjoying looking at it.

    Love the Whimsical Fairies shop! Course I love woodburning too ... my favorite piece is the Celtic Pentacle Altar Tile ... but tell me, what is the meaning of "Ever Mind the Rule of Three"?

    Ahhhh! I would turn my colored pencils into magic! That way all I would have to do is think my way through an illustration and they would execute my commands and turn out magical pieces of art!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I decided I would not like magical colored pencils, my mind is constantly jumping from one idea to the other and the pencils would become confused and create chaos.

      So instead I would turn my vacuum into a magical tool! At my command it would becoming an all in one housekeeper and do all of the cleaning, dusting, mopping, etc. that I do not have time to do! That would be perfect! 8)

    2. As soon as I finished reading about your first choice for magical tool, I asked myself, "Really?" Then I read the next message, and said, "That's more like it!" I think your touch is what makes your work so magical ;-)

  20. What a gorgeous spoon! I would use it for everyday cooking -- the skull would remind me of my connection to Ancestors each time I used it -- and for making Ancestor suppers.

    I love the 'sun' flower in the bowl, too. It's a nice Inner world/Outer world touch. *grin*

  21. I would use that for decoration, only. Everyday. I couldn't bare to put that inside a pot of anything, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be used for magic in some way.

    My favorite item is this one! http://www.etsy.com/listing/111132055/made-to-order-samhain-altar-tile-broom?ref=shop_home_active

    Any mundane item in a house can be used for witchy purposes. So, I'm not sure what to say in that case. :)

  25. What a gorgeous kitchen Tool! That sugar skull is just darling. It begs to be dipped into bubbling, boiling, simmering things so it can fill them full of magic. Between stirring things up it would teach Kitchen Craft to my other wood spoons while resting with them in their woven basket home on the kitchen counter. I would love for any paintbrush that I pick up to be enchanted so that it would spread Love and Peace to anyone who looks at work done with it.

  31. As I saw it I thought that it is too good to use as a cooking tool... at least not for those greasy meals. if only brewing herbs, which I don't do otherwise. But I'd definitely use it as decoration for my room perhaps, and just to scare my husband :) thought he knows I'm into witchy things a little :)

  32. Oooooo... This gorgeous kitchen wand would definitely be a Halloween decoration... but since my apartment seems perpetually decorated for Halloween, it would get to hang out all year long. ^-^
    I wouldn't want to use it to cook anything greasy (because I wouldn't want to scrub it to get it clean), but I think for certain cooking adventures, it would get used... like maybe to stir apple cider.... Mmmm...
    And it would definitely get used for magic. =D I have a wooden spoon with roses burned into it that I use as a kitchen wand... and the very first drop spindle I received as a gift on Valentine's Day a few years back also doubles as a wand. ^-^

    If I could turn anything in my house into a magical tool, I'd pick the spirit doll I made for my cat, Kyo, after he died in 2008. I would imbue the doll with magic to keep my cats safe and healthy. <3

    Thanks, Magaly, and thank you, Paula, for offering this beautiful wand! =D
