Salem Sea Magic of Winter Island

A few photos of Winter Island in Salem MA. It is here that i gathered the sea water on Mabon 2018 for the Salem Sea Magick Spell Bag. https://whispersoftheofae.com/salem-sea-magick-spell-bag

Salem Sea Magick Bag

 

Winter Island is one of my most treasured places to hang out in Salem MA. It has two beaches, one is mostly rocks and the other, Waikiki Beach is an actual beach with sand, rocks and waves. This is also where i collected the sand and shells for the Magick Spell Kit. You can feel the magic of the sea here. Nothing like the sound of waves, the theraputic aroma of sea air and a bit of sand on your shoes to calm the spirit.

 

Waikiki Beach is filled with all kinds of sea treasures. On my birthday i was able to find gorgeous European Oyster shells with hues of pinks, greens and purples, Slipper Shells and tiny moon shells. There are always a variety of clam shells, crab shells, rocks and sea weed to add to my growing sea shell collection. Many of these seashells are now in the process of being wire wrapped with semiprecious stones, crystals and baubles for my next line of magical jewelry. 

 

 

There are a few hiking trails here and an old fort to explore. During the summer people camp here too. Lots of wildlife to see - groundhogs, geese, sea gulls, ducks, sometimes a few foxes, small furry creatures that look like groundhogs and rumors of a coyote.

During the winter there are a few visitors but for the most part it is nice to have the beach to myself and the sea gulls! Learn more at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winter_Island

New Spirit Art Doll - La Befana

La Befana Spirit Art Doll

Just in time for Epiphany aka Little Chrismas!

La Befana is the legendary good Italian witch aka Buona Strega who delivers goodies on the eve of Epiphany, also known as Little Christmas. Every January 5th, Epiphany Eve, Italian children put their shoes out near the fireplace or in the kitchen so that the good witch aka buona strega La Befana can fill them with candy, coins and trinkets.

As a child i was always baffled why we were the only kids in the neighborhood that La Befana came to visit. My Nonna always said it was because she only came to see Italian children. Of course i believed her! I still put my shoes out every year on January 5th, a glass of wine and some sort of treat for her. 

This is the second Befana doll i have made. The first one sold a few years ago. She is pictured below. 

I wanted to create another La Befana art doll this year before Little Christmas which is next Sunday 1/6/19. Now that i am living back in the Witch City, Salem MA i feel more inspired.

I found a few vintage embroidered table pieces that reminded my of my Nonna at the thrift shop, along with a vintage head scarf.

 

I like using recycled fabrics and materials for my spirit dolls. A nice way to be eco-friendly. I also use paper clay instead of fimo or sculpy since those are made from PVC and never break down. Not to mention they are toxic!
