The Spirits that live unseen in our cottage are
most definitely feminine. So to honour them &
the Divine Feminine I brought back from Glastonbury
this figure and in her belly sit my favourite crystals.
This is the most important area of our home, in my mind
I call it the 'engine room' for from this small space is
delivered the sustenance that drives our lives.
Our array of storage pots, you will notice two coffee
jars and that is because we blend two different types
& sometimes we make a brew from just one of them.
The brandy was there just to remind me that I still
had to make another coffee liqueur for Yule.
I have a deep curiosity of looking at other peoples
storage cabinets when visiting their homes & so
just to correct the balance, I thought to display ours.
Our collection of jugs, pots and vases sitting safely
on a beech shelf next to the books.
Shelves of curiosities from from a quaint musical box
to willow plates, a smoker's cabinet & the requisite
drinks shelf with a dish of crystals that separate
Wine from Whisky
All of the willow ware shown here was purchased to display in Mrs H's recent series of paintings.
I hope that you have enjoyed your visit to our home.
