Scenery Tumblr Themes

This is my sister blog. Suited for all the nifty pagan oriented things I find.
I'm a practicing eclectic pagan with very strong Nordic principles.

Feel free to message me about anything. I'll do my best if anyone has questions relating to paganism.

A spirit doll can be an amulet or a talisman. Protection or to attract positive energy.

These are so beautiful! What a wonderful omen

i don’t believe in such things but they are beautifully made though :)

Lughnasadh Recipe: Cinnamon Braid Bread [x]

Ingredients
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup lukewarm milk
1 tbsp sugar
15 g fresh yeast (1 envelope active dry yeast)
1/8 cup (30 g) melted butter
1 egg yolk
Filling
1/4 cup (50 g) softened butter
4 or 5 tbsp sugar
3 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp grounded almonds or macadamias, optional

Directions
In a medium bowl stir yeast with sugar. Stir in the milk and then add the egg yolk and melted butter.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour and salt. Pour the milk mixture over the dry ingredients and start kneading it until it pulls away from the edges of the bowl. Give the dough the shape of a ball. Sprinkle oil onto a clean bowl, place the dough and cover with plastic wrap. Let it rest for about 1 hour at room temperature until doubled in size.
While the dough rises, whisk together the butter with sugar and cinnamon for the filling. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400 F (200 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
On a floured surface, using a rolling pin roll the dough to a rectangle of about 18x12 inches.
Spoon the cinnamon filling over top (keep about 1 tbsp of the filling for the end), spreading evenly, leaving a clean 1/2-inch border around the edges. Sprinkle the nuts over the cinnamon filling. 
Roll up the dough and using a sharp knife, cut the log in half length-wise stopping 1/2 inch from one end to keep it together.
Twist the two pieces, keeping the open layers exposed so the cut ends remain on top..Pinch the ends together and form a wreath.
Transfer it to the prepared baking sheet. Brush the wreath with the left cinnamon filling.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. For the last 10 minutes you can reduce the oven temperature to 180 C (350 F).

Witches of Tumblr - {1/?}~ Heathen Witches ~ Brynja-Storm

The lightning splits the sky

As thunder shakes the ground

And resonates deep in her soul

The power of the on coming storm is in veins,

Embedded in her heart and reflected in her eyes,

 Warrior Queen of wind and gale,

She dances in candle light hours,

Stirring energy in her wake,

Her will flies threw air like arrows,

Strong, independent, a force of nature unto herself,

Beautiful and Strong and Wrathful,

She was chosen by strong Gods, 

For only they could fuel her fire,

Bold and Passionate, and Fierce,

She is the Storm Witch

You will need:

* a blue candle

* a purple candle

* white candle

Put the candles in a triangle. The blue candle should be at the right point. The purple candle should be at the left point. The white candle should be at the top point. Light the candles in the order of blue, purple, then white….

RedSofa is a jewellery line by Montreal-based metalsmith and designer Joanna Szkiela. 

Inspired by nature and human nature, Joanna’s work is deeply ingrained with organic references and gravitates towards decidedly feral forms. 

Her predilection for dark-hewn sterling silver, unpolished gold and rough stones is a direct homage to the sculptural yet edgy side of nature. 

RedSofa’s jewelry collections capture a magical, alchemical world with unaffected style and understated elegance.
