Samhain Swap Details

Date: 10-31-12
Names: Samhain, All Souls Day, All Saints Day, Witches' New Year

Excerpted from Wikipedia:
Samhain is one of the eight annual festivals, often referred to as 'Sabbats', observed as part of the Wiccan Wheel of the Year. It is considered by most Wiccans to be the most important of the four 'greater Sabbats'. It is generally observed on October 31 in the Northern Hemisphere, starting at sundown. Samhain is considered by some Wiccans as a time to celebrate the lives of those who have passed on, and it often involves paying respect to ancestors, family members, elders of the faith, friends, pets and other loved ones who have died. In some rituals the spirits of the departed are invited to attend the festivities. It is seen as a festival of darkness, which is balanced at the opposite point of the wheel by the spring festival of Beltane, which Wiccans celebrate as a festival of light and fertility.

As this is a short swap, we are going to do a size-free, goodwill swap. This means you and your partner determine what is appropriate for swapping between yourselves. There is really a 1 pt small minimum but most people will likely exceed this by at least 1 other small. How big you go is up to you. Offer what you feel comfortable, it is on everyone to just craft the best you can no matter how many or how few objects.

Plan to post updates on progress weekly, make sure you are getting DC numbers on in-country packages and keeping receipts for out of country swaps.Also please make sure to take pics of what you send and what you receive to post in the gallery.

Mabon Harvest Swap

Excerpted from http://wicca.com/celtic/akasha/mabon.htm

Mabon
Autumn Equinox, 2nd Harvest, September 21st

"Mabon, (pronounced MAY-bun, MAY-bone, MAH-boon, or MAH-bawn) is the Autumn Equinox. The Autumn Equinox divides the day and night equally, and we all take a moment to pay our respects to the impending dark. We also give thanks to the waning sunlight, as we store our harvest of this year's crops. The Druids call this celebration, Mea'n Fo'mhair, and honor the The Green Man, the God of the Forest, by offering libations to trees. Offerings of ciders, wines, herbs and fertilizer are appropriate at this time. Wiccans celebrate the aging Goddess as she passes from Mother to Crone, and her consort the God as he prepares for death and re-birth.

Various other names for this Lesser Wiccan Sabbat are The Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, Equinozio di Autunno (Strega), Alben Elfed (Caledonii), or Cornucopia. The Teutonic name, Winter Finding, spans a period of time from the Sabbat to Oct. 15th, Winter's Night, which is the Norse New Year.

At this festival it is appropriate to wear all of your finery and dine and celebrate in a lavish setting. It is the drawing to and of family as we prepare for the winding down of the year at Samhain. It is a time to finish old business as we ready for a period of rest, relaxation, and reflection."

To celebrate the balance of light/dark and the Second Harvest, we are focusing on crafting a 3 pt swap with at least one item intended for altar or travel altar use. Examples could be mini-shrines, altar cloths, offering containers, candle holders, etc.

See previous swaps to get a sense of size. One could craft 1 large item, 1 med and small items, or 3 small items with freedom to go larger based on partner agreement.

15  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Weed or comfrey? Anyone know? on: June 03, 2012 08:31:43 PM
This is a plant I discovered in a used to be flower bed...I looked it up and it looks like comfrey but I'm not sure. I would be grateful for a second opinion.

Thanks for looking!

The plant that is flowering purple buds with the large dark leaves


16  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / The incredible edibile garden....2012........ on: June 03, 2012 08:26:07 PM
I have never posted on this forum before...be gentle (lol).

I decided to show off the area I am in some ways most proud of... my beginnings of a garden. We have had unusually warm weather this year so I used that time to get ahead. It's already grown quite a bit from these pictures...hope it stays that way!

Behold...my plantings!

I have an identical row of tomatoes...we used hoops to wean them out to the outdoors....



Rhubarb with my hand for reference of size


Lettuce and onions


My dad built the cold frame from an unwanted door and scraps. It gave me lettuce by March!


Chive blossoms that have become chive vinegar


Blossoming sage behind the chives


Spinach!


Kidney bean sprout! Hope I get lots, I love chili!


This year's experiment crop, sweet potatoes!


Not edible, but pretty!


Grape vines that will turn into wine for next year!


On the porch is lemon balm, aloe, and mints in pots.

We also planted but didn't get pics of watermelon, 2 different squashes, loofa plants, corn, parsley, basil, asparagus, and onions. And I already have a baby green pepper on the plants!


Hope you enjoyed your "visit" to my garden! C&C welcome!  Cheesy

Anyone down for a Wholock swap? If you don't know what it is, check out youtube! A really fun mishmash of two awesome genres...probably not for Who/Holmes purists!





This could be a swap of any combos of Holmes/Dr's.
