I believe we can be anyone

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best to make you like everybody else is to fight the hardest battle you can fight--but never stop fighting! E.E. Cummings

Spring is here!! Goddess Spring Altar

As usual, it's been a while.  I cannot believe it's mid April already!  Yikes!!  Where has the time gone??  I don't know about you, but gosh, the last six weeks have been challenging.  I felt exhausted a lot of the time and really heavy energetically, even with sleeping a solid eight hours.  I certainly haven't had any problems sleeping.  When I fall asleep, I am OUT!!  There has definitely been some shifting happening on our planet.  The more I speak with people, the more I have heard similar comments from others.  I'm glad I'm not the only one and that it wasn't just "in my head"!

Despite all that, I have done my best to do as much as I could throughout all this shifting and healing, giving myself as much rest as I needed, listening to my body as best I could and not pushing myself too hard. 

On Sunday, April 15th though, I finally felt a shift in energy and I had more energy than I had since going through that six week period.  I definitely know what having energy feels like and what NOT having energy feels like.  This is going to continue to be a BIG year of letting go of the old!  It's time.

A few days before spring officially arrived, I could no longer wait to take down my winter altar and so, I set up my spring altar and would like to share some photos of that with you.  I love the simplicity of this altar with the white and crystal and just a splash of color.  Usually I will put an altar cloth down, but it wasn't necessary this time.  I enjoy combining recycled and used pieces with a few new ones every now and again.  I absolutely love it and hope you do too!

This will be short and sweet for now.

Bringing you beauty and inspiration.

Blessings to you all.

I often use pretty greeting cards for display as art.  I definitely am addicted to beautiful cards and have quite a collection.  I picked up this "card holder" at a used store a while back and it's come in quite handy for displaying cards like this.

These tiny eggs I picked up at Winners before Easter.  I placed them in a crystal bowl I have owned for a long time.  The crystal vase I've had for a long time too.  I love the purple bird and silver crystal branch which I picked up recently at Chintz at Christmastime.  It looks great in this vase.  I placed a couple of shiny silver beaded "necklaces" in the vase which holds the branch in place quite nicely and blends in well with the silver theme.  They are "party beads" I picked up at a Loonie store.

The silver angel wings came from a store called "Angels"  http://www.ourangelscenter.com/ in Marda Loop.  They are just GORGEOUS and the shine on them is amazing.  The photo doesn't give them justice, but you get the idea!

Garage sales are great!  I picked up these 2 Ikea frames for $5 each!   Again, I decided to place greeting cards in them displayed as art.  I've decided I'm going to change the theme of these every change of the season.  That way, I get to enjoy different cards all year long and the art keeps flowing through!
