For those in you who like to use salt when casting a circle. Has anyone ever considered making a portable outdoor circle by taking a large hula hoop and pouring salt inside it? This way you could have salt and not be harming the environment.
Also you could decorate it with colorful tape to represent the elements. Or raise energy by hula hooping. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm
Sometimes I feel like the Vanir are the gods I come home to, while Odin is like the friend who shows up every so often and you tell yourself you’ll behave yourself with him this time but suddenly you’re double fisting bottles of jack in the middle of the desert howling with coyotes while Odin shoots guns at saguaro cacti from horseback.
Pictures taken at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. Formerly known as the Weston State Hospital (built in the mid 1800’s). I took these photos on a trip to West Virginia in the summer of 2011. The 4th and 5th pictures in the series are of a small storage unit used to temporarily hold the bodies of patients who passed away at the hospital.
Apparently at its height the hospital was a big source of revenue for the town. Since its closure a couple decades ago, the town has fallen into a horrible state of disrepair and driving through Weston to get to the hospital left us feeling a tad unsettled. An amazing building to visit and tour through, however.
All photos were taken and belong to Sharon Porter. Please do not steal or use anywhere else without permission.
This location needs to be turned into a haunted house.
It basically has been. They are restoring it and giving tours.
Anonymous said: I'll admit, this is partially nitpicking. But I recently saw a post going around regarding heathen witches and I thought that the Norse had a term to cover magical practices? (seidr I think?) Wouldn't it make more sense to use that word instead of such a long phrase?
Witchcraft and seidr are not necessarily the same thing. People who don’t use it don’t for a reason.
I believe this spell is called “Fuck You I Am a Goddamn Witch and Don’t Have to Tolerate This Bullshit”.
Let’s see how well this plays out for the offenders.
oooooooh what’s it do?
I wanna know, too. It’s cool as fuck.
lol, may as well. I’m having some issues stemming from an old friend and their newest romance. So, I’m intervening. The candles stand for the both of them. Each stone is an issue that’s come between them that they’ve ignored. As my curse burns through each of them, each issue will be brought to the surface and drop to begin building a barrier between them. By the time it’s finished, I don’t expect them to be speaking any more.
*drools intensely at the magick*
My Mom, after having made the courageous decision to leave my incredibly controlling and abusive stepfather of 18 years, is saying she wants to get back together with him. If you don’t mind, I’ll be using this incredibly beautiful spell of yours.
I am flattered you like this spell enough to use it! And I hope I’m not incredibly late to let you know however that this (as I performed it) is NOT a guaranteed break up spell. If the targets are able to work through their issues as they bubble to the surface and truly care about each other, this spell would theoretically only make their relationship stronger. But that of course is why I love it, it was designed to be a relationship version of The Tower. :)
I remember thiiis
This is gorgeous.
Iced Sweet Potato Bites, by Ms. Graveyard Dirt
These iced “pumpkin” [sweet potato] bites are disappearing fast.
INGREDIENTS: SWEET POTATO BITES
* 2½ cups (310 g) all-purpose flour
* 1 tsp (5 g) baking powder
* 1 tsp (5 g) baking soda
* 2 tsps (5 g) ground cinnamon
* ½ tsp (2 g) ground nutmeg
* ½ tsp (1 g) ground cloves
* ½ tsp (3 g) salt
* ½ cup (115 g) butter, softened
* 1½ cups (300 g) white sugar
* 1 cup (245 g) sweet potato puree
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
INGREDIENTS: ALMOND ICING
* 1 cup (120 g) powdered sugar
* 1 tbsp & 1½ tsps (20 ml) milk
* 1½ tsps (7 g) melted butter
* ¼ tsp (1 ml) almond extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.
To Make Glaze: Combine powdered sugar, milk, melted butter, and almond extract. Add additional milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.
MS. DIRTY’S NOTES:
To make these cookies celiac-friendly I used a pre-blended gluten-free flour (Doves Farm produces my favorite), gluten-free baking powder and about a teaspoon of xantham gum for elasticity. If you’re cooking for someone with special dietary needs be sure to thoroughly check all ingredients being used so your culinary efforts - and your guest’s health! - aren’t compromised.
