~ C Richard MilesThe Shy Christmas Tree
Went for a walk this morning to discover the pink Camellias are beginning to bloom. Just a wee bit early, as they usually make their arrival in January. The weather has been unseasonably warm, even for the south.
Not too long ago we attended a local festival where I picked up this little Indian deerskin medicine bag with a pretty butterfly. I keep my rose quartz crystal tucked inside.
If anyone desires a wish to come true they must first capture a butterfly and whisper that wish to it. As a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly can not reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all. In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly freedom, the Great Spirit will always grant the wish. So, according to legend, by making a wish and giving the butterfly its freedom, the wish will be taken to the heavens to be granted.
Today I made some Pink Peppermint Rose foot soak. A nice treat for tired tootsies after a long day of baking up Christmas treats. Tied up with a pretty ribbon and a rose along with a vintage silver spoon for scooping.
I told you this was a random post!
