Greetings and Good Intentions To All ! Below is another poem from Mistress Meg, with permission of course. I'll be sure to link to her when she does get a blog. I like her poems, they make me twinkle!
IT’S ME AGAIN !!!
Each day I look and live in hope
Some fairies there?..........Oh nope.
Another day - and no-one here,
A wilting fairy, me, I fear.
And so I slowly fade away,
Perhaps one will come.....another day.
Until then, I’ll bid adieu,
With glittery wishes - from me to you.
HOPE – that sure is something we all need….how can we live without it? Here are some quotes on hope to give you a bit more if you need it.
“Hope, like the gleaming taper's light, adorns and cheers our way; and still, as darker grows the night, emits a brighter ray.” Oliver Goldsmith (1730-1774)
“Hope is the thing with feathers, which perches in the soul, and sings the tune without words, and never stops at all.” ~Emily Dickinson
“Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself... 'How did I get through all of that?
I have included my COMFORT Fairy ... still have to create HOPE Fairy in the future ... may you have comfort all of your days, and give comfort and kindness to all that you meet.

Faerie – Fairy - Elven Star:
Seven Pointed Stars, called "Faerie or Elven Stars" represent a gift from Faerie to humans to bridge the understanding between the Mortal human realm and that of Faerieland. The 7 pointed star is known as a gateway symbol, a Gate or entrance between our world and that of Faery, the Otherworld. Each point on the star represents a gateway or path of the Higher Self to prepare one for entrance into Faery.
The seven pointed star has a few names: septagram, septacle, Elven Star or Fairy Star. The number seven corresponds to the spirit realm, which is why this symbol is associated with elves or fairies. It is also a representation of those who believe in Faeries, consider themselves to be Fae, or blessed by the Fae.
This seven-pointed star (septagram) represents a belief in fairies and magic. Each of the seven points is believed to have a different meaning, although there are several common interpretations. Some say each point represents a pathway, or the "seven rays of manifestation of the Higher Self."
2 - unconditional love, wisdom and growth
3 - knowledge and intelligence
4 - harmony and tranquillity
5 - the powers of mind and science
6 - devotion and honesty
7 - magic
Another premise is that the points signify the seven magical elements - earth, air, fire, water, light, life and magic - or the inner and outer elements - earth, air, fire, water, heaven, earth and self. A further suggestion is that they represent the seven directions - north, south, east, west, above, below and within.
The number seven is believed to be a magical or lucky number, and can be used to indicate appreciation and knowledge of fairies.
I have included a picture of my CREATE Fairy. I always like promote my art which you can find at my Etsy Shop ... just click on Etsy on the right. Happiness and Abundance To All and Pass On The Good Intentions To All That You Meet.

Some Moonstone Lore for your enjoyment !
MOONSTONE - "a feeling stone"
Moonstone is a “stone of new beginnings.” As its name suggests, it is strongly connected to moon and to the intuition. Like the moon, the stone is reflective and reminds us that, as the moon waxes and wanes, so everything is a part of a cycle of change. Its most powerful effect is that of calming the emotions. Moonstone makes conscious the unconscious and promotes intuition and empathy. Moonstone has traditionally been used to enhance psychic abilities and to develop clairvoyance.
Psychologically, Moonstone calms overreactions to situations and to emotional triggers. Emotionally, Moonstone soothes emotionally instability and stress, and stabilizes the emotions. Moonstone provides deep emotional healing and heals disorders of the upper digestive tract that are related to emotional stress.
Myth & Lore: Moonstone is associated with all Goddesses, but especially the Moon Goddesses. Resembling the Moon or "moonshine", the ancient Romans believed the stone was actually formed from moonlight. In the Orient, people believed Moonstones were actual rays of moonlight that had solidified, and that the shimmering light held within the stone was a good spirit that lived there. People in ancient India also thought along these lines, and the stone is still considered sacred in India today. Amulets of Moonstone were frequently hung in fruit trees to ensure fruitful and abundant crops. In Asia and Europe the stone was associated with love and fidelity and was often worn when trying to attract a faithful lover. It was believed that if held in the mouth, Moonstone would help one make proper decisions. This versatile stone was also used in ancient times to cure insomnia. Due to its association with water, Moonstone is said to be protective of those at sea. It is also protective of those that travel at night and especially during New Moon phases. It was also thought to protect against insanity, epilepsy, and any adverse wanderings of the mind. The ancient Greeks called Moonstone "Aphroselene" after the Goddesses Aphrodite (love) and Selene (moon).
Pearl, Moonstone and Alexandrite are the birthstones of the month of June.
A popular semi-precious stone, Moonstone comes in a variety of colors and shades, but is most often a whitish-blue. Other colors range anywhere from colorless to silvery-white, yellow to orange, green to gray, brown, peach, pink and a type that is multi-colored called Rainbow Moonstone. Other names for Moonstone are Ceylonese Opal, Water Opal, Girasol, Fish-Eye and Wolf's-Eye. The highest and most sought after quality Moonstones come from Sri Lanka.

Dormette (La Dormette de Poitou): A sleep fairy in France. She assures that children will have pleasant dreams. “Sweet sleep be with us, one and all!/ And if upon its stillness fall/ The visions of a busy brain,/ We'll have our pleasure o'er again,/ To warm the heart, to charm the sight,/ Gay dreams to all! good night, good night.”
~Joanna Baillie,Scottish poet (11 September 1762 – 23 February 1851)

Well, I have decided that once in a while I'll post about a particular stone or crystal as I just love the energy of these wonderful gifts from our beautiful home - Earth. So here's some information on one of my very favorite stones, or you may just consider this folklore, whatever suits your sensibility. In any event, I hope you enjoy the post. Oh, I have included some pictures of the stone as well as one of my angel pieces from my Etsy shop.
ANGELITE is a stone that can bring serenity, inner peace, and a sense of calm, relieving feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed. Angelite dispeals fear, heals anger, and encourages forgiveness. Promotes compassion and understanding. Considered a gift from the angels.
Angelite is a perfect stone to use to contact and communicate with the angels and spiritually aligned beings to receive information for yourself and others. Good for dream work and their meanings.
Considered a third-eye and crown Chakra stone. It is an excellent choice to help smooth your emotional body. Excellent at balancing, polarizing and aligning the physical body with the Aura. Helps self expression, communication, and allows us to speak our minds and become more assertive.
This stone is formed from celestite that has been compressed for many millions of years.

This is a wonderful poem by Yeats. The mermaid lore for the most part is a bit too dark for me. So, for me, mermaids and mermen are positive and beautiful sea creatures. I have created a few altered art mermaid pieces and have included the photo's here. Enjoy the day and pass on the good intentions to all you meet.
The Mermaid Poem
by William Butler Yeats
A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.

I LOVE this.
I believe in the spirit of innocence, the wonder that shapes us and leads us to dream.
I believe that life is a gift to be unwrapped everyday and given freely to those in need.
I believe that even in our darkest hour; we can take a deep breath and start all over again.
Most of all, I believe in the Power of Love and that in the end it will heal us all.
May the power of love fill your hearts and souls.
Many blessings to you on your path of light....Remember to keep our chain of love and inspiration strong....
In healing and loving energy,
Walk in peace, light and compassion....
