While walking in the woods one day

Went for a walk in the woods by my house today and discovered MORELS!!!!
I love mushrooms and Morels are super yummy and not all that easy to find round these parts so I was super excited. We will be frying up these bad boys for supper tonight.
I also discovered a huge patch of wild strawberries that I will be back for in a couple weeks :)
The other big surprise of the day was this wee little Oak tree. Oak trees do not grow in abundance in this part of Canada so I was very pleased to make the acquaintance of this little man and I will be visiting often to cultivate a relationship with him.
Unfortunately there is not alot of wild space around where I live but you would be amazed at what you can find.

Just as it was time to go home one last gift. What a wonder filled day in the woods.

Thrift Shop finds

I Love second hand stores! It doesn't matter where it is I can usually find something I adore. I am the Queen of knick knacks. I try not to go often as I have very limited space and over the years have collected quite a bit of "stuff". I consider it one of the ultimate recycles and what better way to help Mama Earth :) Today I found.......

This amazing ceramic green dragon trinket box
isn't it cute! It was $2.49

Then I found this ......I was so thrilled
She will sit on the ancestor alter for offerings. I paid .99 cents. So It was a very good day for bargains.

Dipping in a toe to test the waters

So I have flirted with the idea of a blog for a bit now and finally have decided to give it a try. I am not entirerly sure what I want to do with this yet but what I do know is that it will be Witchy and Mine. My Opinions and My Stuff so if you do choose to comment make it nice or it won't stay long enough to matter :) With that said an introduction is in order. I am Avalon child of Raven and Skywolf, born and raised in the beautiful country of Canada. I am a Witch. I am a Priestess of the old ways. I am a Mother. I am a Wife. and I am Gaea's Dragon!
