Blossom Fairy Art Card - OOAK - Quote and Poem by William Blake

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~Anais Nin

The Blossom ~William Blake
Merry, merry sparrow!
Under leaves so green
A happy blossom
Sees you, swift as arrow,
Seek your cradle narrow,
Near my bosom.
Pretty, pretty robin!
Under leaves so green
A happy blossom

I'm highlighting my Blossom Fairy Art Card ACEO which I just re-listed today at my Etsy shop.  Embellished with a vintage, Art Nouveau touch.  Enjoy and thanks for looking.   

Peace, Joy and Happiness to all.

I love the card, so ethereal. Love both the quotes too, although I think the one by Anais Nin is my favorite.

Blessings to you and yours,


P.S. I hope the smudging worked. Here's another way to cleanse a space if you have access to a free flowing spring or creek (my Cherokee grandmother used this method): Pluck one frond from a Cedar tree, scoop some of the water into a non-metal container that has been left out for one night in the light of the full moon. The next part is done on the first night of the waning moon: Walking through the space you wish to cleanse, dip the Cedar frond into the water and, with a flick of your wrist, sprinkle the water around the space. The strength of the Cedar Spirit and the flowing nature of the Spring, or water, Spirit will combine with the 'drawing away' energy of the waning moon to clear your space of bad spirits.

Oh, Victoria I am so glad we found each other. I also love the quote the best. We still smudge most days and I have to tell you I do feel "lighter" when we do. No concrete results yet, but I know I have to be patient even though we've been waiting for a change for over five years now. I just have to have faith that the Goddess is with us and for some good reason we are where we need to be right now ... but it can be so difficult. I love the suggestion and will type it up and put it in my special book where I keep all kinds of knowledge and mementos from my life. I do know and feel we are all connected, we are part of the all, we are one and that includes everything on this beautiful planet our Mother Earth.

Happiness and Peace to you.
