Yes just as I promised my next giveaway is starting today and will run through February 14th - Valentines Day. In the beginning my plans were to center the giveaway around "love"... yet as we all know it is difficult if not impossible for me to not allow my thoughts or plans to grow. I wanted to somehow also incorporate Imbolc within my giveaway as we will celebrate it in just a little over 10 days. Also as you all know I have been itching for the arrival of spring or at least its subtle pressence since Yule so.... well you all know I don't need to explain it "again". So on with the explanation what all the things within my bounty.
The first item is a wonderful numbered print from Illustrated Ink. I have grown to love her work and when I seen this in her Esty Shop I had to get it. Of course I have one for myself yet wanted to also share it with all of you. (well at least one of you). It portrays love in a beautiful sense. As the artist explains; it represents that love never dies even after death.
Next is a perfect little flowering pot to start some growth inside. Along with some seeds of herbs and assorted flowers. Honestly you may feel that this is just too cute to plant in and decide to use it for something else. You can not see them yet tucked down into the pot is a nice ample supply of some of the best chocolates I know of. I can assure you that you will love these. These are the kind that you simply take one (if you can only eat one) and enjoy each bite. The white chocolate center is simply wonderful.
Of course if one is going to be planting they need to have a trusted Priapic wand. I have fashioned this one of a wonderful piece of Apple wood that I have had for some time. Atop it sits a small acorn from my little oak. I will say that the wand is not finished yet I wanted to have it in the picture .
Lastly is a small sachet I made, filled with herbs and scents of Imbolc, Myrrh, Violet, and others. As we all know this giveaway could still grow a bit more before it is all said and done yet this is the general idea of it all. Now for the guidelines: They are simple as always yet I though this time I would put a bit of a twist in them. Just for the fun of it. See below.
