Ostara, Herbs, and Mad Tea Parties

Hello friends!

Firstly, I have redesigned my blog to suit a little forest girl like myself!  I am longing for green forests and trees once more...

My my March is a busy and buzzing time.

The Spring Equinox has arrived, despite the frigid temperatures we are experiencing here in the North.

We are still buried under the snow.  I am a Northern girl, I must embrace this, though I do admit I long for warmer days sitting under trees reading books a la Frodo Baggins and picking wildflowers.

I was lucky to get out and snap a few shots on Ostara.  In my Damsel in this Dress corset and with flowers in my hair.

As a hedge witch I am embraced herbal remedies and magicks.  I have organized my little herb cupboard with burlap ribbons and rustic mason jars.  I think it looks delightfully primitive and old fashioned.

I was blessed to attend a Mad Tea Party last weekend.  My dear friend Natasha decided that for her birthday party she would host an unbirthday party for all of her friends!  As she is allergic to gluten all of the desserts were gluten free, and they were so yummy!  Cupcakes, cherry tarts, chocolate fondue, macaroons!  And non-gluten free tea cup and tea pot shaped cucumber sandwiches that were simply divine.

Natasha's home is filled with trinkets and whimsical pieces that her and her family have collected throughout the years on their travels and adventures.

The have a little shrine to scotch in their dining room that has been in place since their travels to Scotland last year!  

I am finished my semester, actually pretty much my entire undergraduate degree next week.  I snapped this picture of the moon as I left my class last week, twinkling above the twilight skies and beyond the skeleton tree.

Soon this eternal Mickey Mouse devotee and Potterhead will be off to this castle..

And this one too!

I shall see you when I return!

Love from,

Your Stevie Nicks wrap is just fab, I love your outfits!

My niece has celiaki and I would love to see a recipe, if there was something especially scrumptious at the party you can share with us.

That is a great idea. If you have not finalized it yet I think you should also take a look at best party venues in Houston. The ambiance is great and I am sure you will love their services too.
