Cressida and the Christmas Pudding

Hi friends!

I do hope all of my American friends had a lovely Thanksgiving.

I have been so very organized getting everything done so I will be able to relax during December!

Some winter cleaning, finishing up assignments, wrapping gifts (my shopping has been done since October haha!)

We just threw away two big huge boxes of old Christmas junk.  I'm an organizing freak and my mom doesn't care as much about it.  When we put up the decorations this year I made sure we got rid of all the junk from Christmas pasts.

I have decorated my altar with lights and a tree.  I have two in my room alone!

I have created a new primitive folk art piece for Yule and Christmas, based on English Christmas desserts and sweet cooking ladies.

'Cressida and the Christmas Pudding'

Cressida is available in my Etsy shop!

Clickable link below and in the left sidebar for primitive art treats, tarot readings and magic spells!

Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season, and the snow fairies are visiting many of you!

Much love and brightest blessings,

Enchanted Treats and Sparkly Things

Hi friends!

How is the festive season treating you?  Any snow appearing in your neck of the woods?

We keep getting some magical snow that keeps melting!  I love every season for what it's worth, but there's something about the coziness of snow that makes me feel happy.

I think we should be celebrating yuletide things well into January just so we get the adequate supply of snow to go with it!  My apologies to those who don't get any snow at all, but I think Christmas in some place like New Orleans would be delightful as well.

I've added sparkly stars above my head while I sleep!  The blue ones are made in India and have a gorgeous paisley design on them.

I also received this lovely treat in the mail from Debi at Puddleduck Grange just before Halloween.  How beautiful is this enchanting blue-skinned vampiress?!  I just love her.  You are such a talent Miss Debi!

And some sparkly jewel treasures from a marvellous and magical Etsy shop called Lotus Fairy

How wonderful, tarot card ring, a ouija board ring!  The eyes (except the eye of horus) are from ebay!

And this mystical necklace with the astrological symbols on it!  So perfect for a fortune teller.

I have been listening to and taking so much inspiration from Miss Stevie Nicks.  I just love her gorgeous sorceress style, I've been buying so many gypsy-chic clothing pieces trying to emulate her fabulousness!

I've been doing a bunch of yuletide decorating.  The stockings for Mr. Jamie and I are hanging on my fireplace and a Leaves candle from Bath and Body Works (best, most cinnamon apple smell ever) burning on top!

I have been working very hard on my term papers but had to return to mystical magical land to take a peek at your beautiful blogs, and share some of my recent comings and goings as well.

I've been feeling very invigorated recently as I have decided to pursue a master's degree in History, and will be working on my first thesis next year!

I also wanted to mention my beautiful friend Sara of Snovits Apple has created her own etsy shop!  Her shop is filled with beautiful wearable jewelry and art, and every piece has a description and story that will take you away to some magical place!  Next sale in my shop means I can purchase a piece I have my eye on ;)

Hope you're all having a gorgeous November.  I'll be back soon ;)

Lots of love,
