This year, the Autumnal Equinox is winking at Halloween. I suspected they were sweet on each other, but it wasn’t until Ms Misantropia decided to play matchmaker that I found out just how serious these two were.
How do they show their spooky fall(ish) love, you may be asking? Via secret patsies: I knew the identity of my recipient, but had no idea who would send me a gift. Are you wondering who showed me Halloween love on the week of the Autumnal Equinox? I hope you are… since I’m telling you anyway. I was delighted, by the talented, super thoughtful and imaginative, Nadine.
The first gift (and my favorite!) is a stunningly stitched crimson journal. I fell for it the moment I set eyeballs and hands on it. Its new home is my old dictionary.
Then these three witchy ladies flew in… I just love that their brooms match their hairs.
Remember that bit about Nadine being super talented? Well, she crafted almost everything I’m sharing with you today, including this painting. Isn’t it perfect?
My Montauk daisy, under the autumnal sun, wasn’t the creation of Nadine… But I had to share it with you. See how happy the Equinox looks when courted by Halloween?
This red, black and silvery beauties, on the other hand… Yep, more by Nadine.
She also sent me an Autumn Magic scented candle, from Witch City Wicks. She’s shy—the candle—and asked me if she could keep her dress on. “Of course” *cough*.
I had to share another photograph of my stunning journal enjoying its new home.
Ms Misantropia, thanks so much for making this possible. My sweet Nadine, your gifts brought all kinds of grins to my witchy heart. I was having a rather trying week… But the thought you put into all this reminded me to focus on the gigantic wee bits that balance light and dark, and make life just right. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!
For you, my Luvs, I’m hoping the Equinox (Autumnal or Vernal) brings wonder, magic, love… and a cornucopia of wishes waiting to come true for you and yours. ♥
