day 2 of a witches tea!

Are you enjoying our weekend long tea party? And can you believe I'm actually running late for the second day of my own party! Life just has a funny way of not cooperating with our best laid plans sometimes.

But I made it and I'd love to have you come and share a cup of tea with me.

Have a seat and make yourself comfortable.

This mini tea party is about remembrance, gratitude,
nurturing and honoring our magical selves.

For today's party I brewed a cup of pomegranate tea to honor
the divine feminine within all of us...

served in a mini cauldron mug of course!

I am grateful for friends I've made through this wonderful blogging
community and the kinship and sisterhood you have all shared with me.

(I love these goodies sent to me by the lovely Wendy and sweet Linda.)

I remember dear ones that have my dad, my dear lola (grandma)
and my sweetest furry baby Kushka.

(I miss her everyday)

And I honor my journey, the wisdom that it has brought me
and the doors that have both closed and opened for me.

I mentioned during last month's party that I am going through an emotional
time so much of what I'm doing is healing.

I am trying to do this by pampering myself, remembering that we
are all goddesses and powerful inside, and by finding my way
back to my art and my muse.

So today I'd like to share with you a few little things that make me smile.

A wise owl for your own sacred or creative space, wonderful English herbal tea bags to
bathe in and soothe your body and soul, and a glittery frosted petunia bracelet just
 like my own that I wear everyday. A reminder to myself that life is beautiful and magical.

Anyone that left a comment on yesterday's post and on this one will be entered in my giveaway. I'll also add one or two artful surprises to go along with them.

Now it's time to carve a few pumpkins, add another tombstone to our yard
and check on the candy supply.

Thank you so much again for joining me this All Hallow's weekend!

Have a most magical Halloween...

a very blessed Samhain....

and be sure to indulge with a festive spirit or two!

Oh Anna, what a lovely post. I was thinking of those who have gone today too. My darling Lucy, my cat whom I named my shop after, is always with me in spirit but I miss her everyday. Thank you so much for hosting all of the parties. I am pretty new to blogging and I have so much enjoyed becoming part of the blogging family. Joining you parties has really made me smile.

Thanks again and Happy Samhain

Blessings & Bliss

What a wonderful tea party you've hosted Anna! I'm sorry I was unable to participate this year. The end of the month simply crept up too fast!

Keep pampering and believing in yourself...there's no better way to heal.


btw..please don't include my name in the drawing for this give away. Although they are lovely gifts, I wouldn't feel right since I didn't participate in the party.

Thank you so much for hosting this lovely party! October seems a good month for mourning, when leaves fall like tears. Ask Luna for some kitty purr-magic and take care.

Everything is breath taking beautiful...

I love knowing that the veil between the living & spiritual world is lifted. AND on All Hallows' Eve at the stroke of midnight you can hear whispering in the wind...
