Isn’t this #marigoldmagic tea just stunning 😍
I love nothing more than to take 10 minutes out of my day to sit and watch my tea bloom 🌸 and then mindfully slurp it’s deliciousness 😋
These beauties are now available on my website in packs of 4 💕
This weekend was pretty JUICY despite mostly working. Can you BELIEVE the colour of this calendula oil?! That’s going all over MAH BADEH! Spent some sweet time out in the garden, making tea - picked nettle with my bare hand for the first time 😱😱 #babyherbalist#thrilled 😆
Saw mum in passing a couple of times but we still managed to drop into conversations about anti capitalism and non linear time. Things are changing. 😂 Chatted with Chris about our intentions for the outbuildings and how we’d like them and the veg/herb garden to be a safe space. It’s time for some radical togetherness.
This chat helped me out of a shame spiral and I really felt my craving for community, to be a useful part of one (or many), and to get out of my self absorption/individualism. Village mindedness. That’s where it’s at! Chris is already doing this with the shop and by building a bike trail and encouraging people up there, it’s a real hub now- I’m proud of him ☺️🧡
I listened to @rachaelrice on the @welldamnlifestyle pc discussing whiteness and wellness, @gottesss chatting moon magic with @carmenspagnola on the Numinous Podcast, @adriennemareebrown discussing #emergentstrategy on lots of podcasts (thank you thank you!), and many more on anticapitalism, apocalypse, herbs etc. I felt so FULL and inspired. And also think I might have overloaded my brain somewhat as a migraine set in Sunday evening 😂💥Oops💥!! Anyway I’ve rambled enough for one post. Cariad mawr pawb. 🥰🥰🥰🥰❤️❤️❤️❤️🧡🧡🧡🧡
One of my favorite Summertime jobs is stringing thousands of marigolds into garlands and crowns that I sell at Arcata Farmers Market on Saturday’s with our farm, @happyheartsfarm stand.
I can’t wait for these beauties return!!!
Pre-order Marigold Finds the Magic Words today and help make his birthday an extra special celebration!!!
Dreaming of marigolds & dyeing with homegrown indigo!
Oh how I love S P R I N G in California ✨✨✨
Marigold’s message: you are brilliant, shine your light in your unique way. 💥
Remember the @quinceandco Owl skeins I posted a few days ago? Here they’re after they got dyed with marigolds! The ones on the right went in the dyepot first, the ones on the left went next, in the exhaust dyebath. I used 2:1 fresh/frozen flowers to fiber ratio.
PS: These skeins were originally in the Abyssinian colorway (natural, undyed, heather beige-ish grey)
We made this beautiful marigold dye pot in preparation for our Michaelmas Celebration at @bloomplayspace tomorrow night. Looking forward to making another with the children who are joining us. #michaelmas#marigoldmagic
Merry golds! Drying these for winter dye and ink projects. ✨💛✨
It’s Virgo Season!! Here’s how you can tell I’m not a Virgo.... my pen and cap are two different colors and the crystals in the drawer are not organized by color and shape 😜. Yet bowing to the power of the virgo energy to bring in energy of inspired organization. I’m really excited about getting this desk set up for writing. It was a full on chaos altar before and now I have moved the crystals to the desk. I would like to share other items on here. I’ve got a vase of marigolds grown locally and the vase is made by my 💗 @jessopottery. Blessing the gold leaf altar energy I have a crystal from John of God given to me by my mother @faithlegal and an optical calcite. In the dropper bottle, I’m working with @ancestralapothecary Luz de Abuelita that is also a marigold so I thought it was perfect to go with the flowers that were given to me this week. I also have some moldavite oil and a 🐝 wax candle. I have two notebooks. One is for dream study and the other one is for exploring expressive writing prompts from @leesareneehall ~ I’m really excited to have set up this altar and writing space. What is Virgo energy bringing in for you after this potent new moon? #virgoseason#newmoon#desksetup#highvibes#marigold#marigoldmagic#crystaldrawer
