Would you just look at this beauty!

How lucky am I? I mean, really. This lovely was made for me by Catherine over at her blog, House of Trouble. A short while back, she posted a blog entreating her readers to suggest a few names for her, then unnamed Muse. She then listed some characteristics and the naming began! I had suggested Puck; for the mischievous little imp who served Oberon (and himself.) After some research done herself, Catherine most appropriately chose the name Persephone. Aptly so, I thought once I read her reasoning. And what a poetic name for an art's muse!
Though she went with a name chosen herself, I was the proud winner of a custom embossing! She knew that she would plan out a Bosch-inspired mermaid, but she asked me for any symbols that are near and dear to my heart. That was a task, let me tell you! I offered the symbol of Libra, a dragonfly (one of my Spirit Guides) or the Goddess symbol of the Full Moon with a crescent on either side. The Moons have it! And I think it worked out just magnificently! I am so thrilled to have her framed in my room next to my door. Now I see her every time I walk in or out of my thicket of solitude!
This wonderful experience has inspired me to get back into my own fantasy art. Let's hope this time is the charm!
Thank you, yet again, Catherine for your art, inspiration and creativity! You shine brightly, indeed.

Really Quick

Nothing to do with Paganism. I'm just extremely excited for the opening day of the Barnstable County Fair this year. Why? Well, let me give you a quick back story to the enigma that is me. Growing up in Bad Axe, Michigan, I didn't listen to the mainstream music that was, and always is so abundantly available on the radio. In fact, I practically begged the bus driver and my parents (against my sister's wishes) to listen to the oldies station. This was my music of choice until we moved out her to the East Coast and I couldn't get a signal for any oldies station to save my life! Now, the exciting part.

Yep. Herman's Hermits, one band among the plethora of oldies bands I enjoyed as a child, is the big name on the stage for opening night! Weee!!!! This must be what it feels like to feel tipsy! I've already seen The Monkees (in 1996 when I was 12) and The Moody Blues (in 1997)! Who knows? Maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to see Paul McCartney in concert. *Wish*
