The confluence of multicultural
Festivals of Light — Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa,
Divali, Santa Lucia, Soyal — that surround the Winter
Solstice are all holidays of hope and cheer. Lighting
a light at the darkest time of the year is a pledge somehow.
A promise. A sacred vow. Such a small, symbolic gesture.
So elegantly simple. So significant. Each tentative flicker
of each flame is a reminder of the fragility and pulsating
persistence of the life force. Each spark, a signal flare
So light some lights! Throw some illumination on your
life and out into the world.
Check out the Candles
and Burners Page for a selection of special and unusual
candles and candle holders. I especially recommend the
Tea Light Lamp. Not only is it beautiful, but it is
healing, as well. The heat of the candle diffuses negative
ions into the atmosphere of your room, which removes toxins
and negative energy.
Candles make wonderful gifts. The Brass
Buddha and Kwan
Yin Taper Holders are very sweet. Not only do they
serve to hold candles, they also remind you to keep a
calm radiance. The Brass
Candle Holder and the Beaded
Candle Holder are really beautiful. They make a lovely,
elegant addition to any room.
Jewelry is always a perfect present. And the Jewelry
Page is stocked with fascinating hand crafted multicultural
goddess pendants, pins and charms.
The renown jewelry designer Judith Mullen has created
a fabulous suite of
silver and gold earrings, necklaces, pins and bracelets
with imagery of the Venus of Willendorf and the Sleeping
Maltese Goddess. Check out her wonderful Venus
of Willendorf book marks/money clips.
“What about the kids?” you ask. Check out
the Zip Stones
on the Magnet
Page. Kids love these amazing magnetized singing hematite
stones. They are soooo cool! And there is a range of interesting
and unusual Percussion
Instruments from Chile, Viet Nam, Kenya, Burkino Faso,
Mexico, Puerto Rico and Guatemala. Create a family drumming
circle or band and ring in the New Year with music.
My gift to you for all orders over $50 (received by December
31, 2018) is my Purple Joie de Vivre Blessing Oil. This
oil/herb blend is formulated to facilitate the utterly
luxurious release of that last tightly held, clenched
breath. And to stimulate the giggle that bubbles up to
fill the vacuum!
My best blessings for a jolly holiday season.
