Creating a Sacred Space

During the last year or so, we have all been spending much more time at home, and for some of us, our home has become a quiet Sanctuary for Reflection and Meditation. With that in mind, we began to see that specific areas have been created, some of our curtains became backdrops for personal altars.

To Create a Sacred Space or Altar, try to choose a part of your home that has little daily family traffic. Not an easy thing to do for most of us!! It is a good idea to “clear the air” by burning sage in a safe vessel such as a seashell to wipe away the negative energy and start fresh.

Choose a lovely small tabletop for your altar, and put some of your favourite objects on display for an uplifting inspiring spot.  Remember, this is a space for gratitude and inspiration, where you will connect with your inner creative soul.

Sacred Spaces

Some suggestions for your Altar Objects might be Candles, Feathers, Crystals, flowers and herbs, Favourite stones and shells, spiritual figures, Special textiles to place your pieces on, and of course,a journal to record your thoughts.!

We will be offering some divine beeswax candles for you to enjoy shortly. If you are subcribed to our Newsletter, there will be a special offer on these beautiful hand dyed beeswax candles, Can’t wait to share!

Goodnight Goodnight!

Getting Ready For Bed should be a leisurely experience as you unwind from your busy day.

Fabrics for nightwear should be as comfortable as possible,………..

It’s a delicate balance between being cool enough and cosy enough!

Our cotton nightgowns, in combination with your favourite bedding,

will ensure a good nights rest.

After all, we spend a third of our lives sleeping, so let us make the best of it!

Sweet Dreams!

that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow”

The Colours of Fall

There is a certain warmth to the colours of Fall this year.

An apology for that early frost. The pinks and corals are popping out everywhere,and white pumpkins are replacing traditional orange.

Last of the Summer Flowers

It’s August, and it is time to reflect on the joy and pleasure that flowers give us all.

I love to watch the hummingbirds and butterflies fly from blossom to blossom

anointing each one with their presence.

Spring Cleaning

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful ” …….William Morris

As we say goodbye to winter, and usher in Spring,

it’s the perfect time to clean and organize and perhaps purge as

Mr Morris suggests!

One of our favourite ways to start, is to banish all heavy drapes and dark pillows to the linen closet, and hang simple light reflecting fabrics and lace at the windows.

Bring wildflowers indoors, and force branches of flowering trees by simply placing in water filled vases. Within a week you will have flowering blooms!
