SpiritsOfTheForest's Shop Announcement

MARCH 2013. GREETINGS TO EVERYONE FROM MY SOUTHERN FOREST, I CAN SMELL SPRING IN THE AIR, EVEN AS THE WINTER RAINS ARE STILL WASHING THE EARTH, THE BUDS ARE ANXIOUS TO BURST FORTH. LET US ENJOY THE WONDERFUL GIFTS OF NATURE~!~
SEPTEMBER IS HERE~!~ AUTUMN IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. MOTHER NATURE HAS HAD A BUSY SUMMER, MY TREES ARE FULL OF ACORNS AND SOON THE SQUIRRELS WILL BEGIN THEIR HARVEST. I TOO, HAVE BEEN BUSY IN THE FOREST GATHERING WONDERFUL PLANTS AND HERBS TO SHARE. .FEBRUARY 2012.. THIS WINTER HAS BEEN MILD IN MY SOUTHERN FOREST. I HAVE LOST MANY OF MY OLDEST TREES DUE TO STRONG WINDS, BUT I HAVE LEARNED THAT BIRTH ALWAYS FOLLOWS DEATH CLOSELY AND THE FALLEN LOGS ARE ALREADY MAKING HOMES FOR MANY OF THE FORESTS SMALLER CREATURES. ONCE AGAIN I REALIZE MOTHER EARTH KNOWS BEST......SPIRITS OF THE FOREST HONORS THE GIFTS FROM OUR WOODLANDS GIVEN TO US BY MOTHER EARTH. ALL ITEMS ARE GATHERED WITH LOVE AND PACKAGED WITH CARE. VISIT ME OFTEN TO SEE THE NEW GIFTS SHE HAS PROVIDED FOR US.I LOVE TO HELP WITH LEAF AND WILDFLOWER COLLECTIONS. THERE ARE ABOUT 50 DIFFERENT TYPES OF TREES GROWING IN THE FORESTS NEARBY AND MANY WILDFLOWERS THAT CHANGE WITH THE SEASONS.
I WILL BE ADDING A FEW NEW SECTIONS TO MY SHOP.
FOREST READS: WONDERFUL VINTAGE BOOKS ABOUT THE FOREST AND VINTAGE CHILDRENS BOOKS THAT SPARK THE IMAGINATION AND ARE EVEN MORE MAGICAL WHEN READ IN THE FOREST.
FOREST FINDS: A DELIGHTFUL ASSORTMENT OF VINTAGE AND UNUSUAL ITEMS FOUND ON MY FOREST WALKS. USUALLY BOTTLES AND SUCH, BUT SOMETIMES SOMETHING MAGICAL APPEARS AFTER MOTHER NATURE WASHES THE EARTH WITH A HEAVY RAIN.
I HAVE HAD SOMEONE INQUIRE AS TO HOW I FIND SO MANY TURTLE SHELLS, THERE IS A RAILROAD TRACK THAT RUNS THRU THE MIDDLE OF MY FOREST, THE LEVY IS QUITE HIGH AS IT IS A VERY SWAMPY AREA FOR MUCH OF THE YEAR, IT SEEMS THESE GENTLE CREATURES CAN MANAGE TO CRAWL INTO THE SPACE BETWEEN THE RAILS , BUT DUE TO THE WAY THE TRACKS ARE MADE, MANY OF THEM CANNOT GET OUT. I AM ABLE TO RESCUE SOME AND HELP THEM ACROSS, BUT IN SOUTHERN HEAT THAT REACHES OVER 100 DEGREES MOST DAYS THEY DO NOT SURVIVE LONG WITHOUT WATER .I TAKE THEM TO A SPECIAL PLACE IN THE FOREST WHERE THE BEETLES CLEAN THEM PROPERLY AND THE SUN DOES NOT CRACK THEIR BEAUTIFUL SHELLS.
JULY 2011. IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE I HAVE ADDED NEW ITEMS, THIS SPRING WAS HARD ON MY SOUTHERN FOREST. MOTHER NATURE BROUGHT DEVASTATING STORMS AND FLOOD WATERS TO THE FOREST. THE WATERS HAVE DRIED NOW AND I HAVE FOUND MUCH BEAUTY AMID THE DESTRUCTION.ANCIENT TREES LAY ON THEIR BACKS BLOCKING TRAILS AND PATHS, BUT THE FOREST CREATURES HAVE MADE NEW TRAILS AND THE WATERS HAVE UNCOVERED MUCH, I HOPE TO SHARE SOME OF THESE THINGS WITH YOU.
ENJOY THE BEAUTY!
