Blessing At Mabon - And the Winner Is

First and formost, Blessed Mabon to each and every one of you out there in blogland.  Fall came officially last eve at 10:09 pm central time.  A beautiful full harvest moon accompanied her.  It was simply a beautiful night to be outdoors and enjoy nature in all her glory. It has been windy and balmy here the last few days yet a cool front is promised to arrive tomorrow bringing with it the cool crisp days that I look forward to so in Autumn.

The last few days have been full of busy work.  Doing last minute things for my son's wedding the first week of October, celebrating my sisters 50th birthday, running Winston to the vet (he has had a bout with the stomach flu), and all the regular chores and events of everyday life.  Yet sprinkled through these times have been a few wonderful blessings. 
 First off a package was waiting for me when I arrived home last week from a dear friend in Wales.  Many of you know her .  Inside was a beautiful crooked hawthorne wand and some of her wonderful homemade incense.  The box smelled absolutely wonderful. 

Then a few days later, I received another package from Candace at Howling Moon.  I had won a giveaway earlier and inside was my prize.  A simply adorable Santa orny with such intricate work and detail  Although I know Yule is some time off, I can not bare to put it away til then.  It will definately be out on display for the rest of the year.

Then to top it all off...
 Yesterday I received my Mabon exchange box from Linda in New Mexico. 
It was filled with tons of goodies all tucked inside a cute little wooden basket.
Spicey spices from green and red chilles, carmel corn...
A beautiful pair of acorn ear rings, and so much more.  Needless to say I feel quite spoiled at this moment. 

Then I realized that today was the day to pick the winner for my giveway.  A wonderful way to give back for all the goodness and blessings that I have been receiving.  Of course I carefully wrote everyone name down and jumbled them up good, reached inside and pulled out the lucky person's name. The winner of of my 300 follower giveaway is Kally 83 over at Kally's Cauldron.  Congrats Kally if you could shoot me your mailing info I will get your goodies together and have it shipped off to you shortly. 

You may be wondering when my next giveaway will be.  I am participating in Mrs. B's 31 days of Halloween and will be donating a set of my willow runes to her many items.  I will also have a giveaway of my own during the month to involve her event.  Be sure and keep a look out for the details.  Thanks again to all of you who left such beautiful comments in regards to my blog, it is only what it is because of you. 

Blessed Mabon and Full Harvest Moon, may the rest of your week be joyful.

It is always so nice to have something in the mail besides bills. I'm happy for you! I so wish I'd been able to see the beautiful moon last night, be we had too many clouds. Hopefully, I'll get to see it tomorrow while it is still close to full.

Tammie said...

Jasmine said...

mmmh! Those spices look HOT! I can see many a cauldron bubbling with delicious fare with these ingredients. Your runes look fantastic. Happy Mabon xJ

Congratulations Janie...I can't think of anyone who deserves it more than you do! What a very nice gifting!

Lots of goodies I see! :)

We had overcast weather so I couldn't see the SuperMoon but I was able to see it the night before...and hopefully I will be able to see it tonight as the clouds are starting to part a little right now. Mabon is one of my favorite times of the year! I love celebrating the Harvest Abundance and Being Grateful to Mother/Father for all of the Blessings that so abundantly come our way!

Blessings and Peace to you Dear Heart! :)

As I wander about looking at the pages of each of us who participated in Faerwillow's exchange and posted, I just feel more and more at peace. What a lucky bunch of ladies we are.

Being from Texas, those spices you got just look scrumpti! And while I know what I'm mentioning next wasn't part of the exchange, your runes look so charming and that Hawthorne wand from over the's all just made me smile.

I can't help but feel more and more blessed as I travel about. Thank you gals for that.

Faith, trust, and faerie dust,
