Cora! She has given me a blog award! So sweet! So I send her my thanks. Now my charge is to make a list of 7 favorite things, and then pass the award on to 15 other bloggers who I have discovered & think are terrific.
My 7 will be witchy-type books or other essential crafty stuff:
1. Terry Pratchett's witch books: Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky, Wintersmith, Wyrd Sisters, Lords & Ladies, Carpe Jugulum, Maskerade...there are more. I love all Pratchett's work, but I have a special place in my heart for the witches.
2. The Mists of Avalon. There was a reason I read this over & over again in high school and undergrad!
3. Essential oils, especially lavender, geranium and lemon.
4. Phyllis Curott's Book of Shadows. I got the quote that names this blog from this text. It's one of the first serious craft books I read. I highly recommend it, especially for a newbie who likes to think of herself as sophisticated, educated & skeptical ;).
5. Starhawk's The Spiral Dance.
6. The Paulina Tarot <3 <3 <3
7. The Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells by Judika Illes!
Now for the bloggers on whom I bestow the Beautiful Blogger Award:
Ok, that's 13. But that's a good #, too. I really enjoy reading you all! Please pass this award on to other beautiful bloggers, and let them know that you have honored them.
