It happens to be one of those days where I can't seem to find my words since my mind is in such a jumble. For the last couple of months the schools in Flagstaff, one in particular, have been the target of what I would call school terrorism. Notes have been found talking of school shootings etc, with dates and targets, and it has everyone on edge. For the second day in a row, my son's girl friends school has gone into shutdown under threats and more notes found and I find my brain isn't on work as much as it is on the safety of not only my own children but all of those effected by these circumstances. We all have drawn a bit closer in the last few days and I am in contact more frequently with my man, basically pulling my family close to me like the mother hen I am. So excuse me for not having much to say the past few days, my mind is occupied with all kinds of things right now, which means anything I write turns into a jumbled mess. So enjoy the song, and check out these amazing new releases from Hudson's, Tameless, Essences and more!

Lyrics:
well i don't know how and i don't know why
but when something's living well you can't say die
you feel like laughing but you start to cry
i don't know how and i don't know why

well i don't have many and i don't have much
in fact i don't have any but i've got enough
'cos i know those eyes and i know that touch
i don't have many and i don't have much

but oh darling my hearts on fire
oh darling my hearts on fire
oh darling my hearts on fire
for you

well i don't know where and i don't know when
but i know we'll be lovers again
i'll see you some day before the end
i don't know where and i don't know when

oh darling my hearts on fire
oh darling my hearts on fire
oh darling my hearts on fire

you know those love songs will break your heart
you know those love songs will break your heart
you know those love songs will break your heart

oh darling my hearts on fire

Welcome to the Coven, enjoy your first tea party! Featuring LiViD

It has been over a year now since I have blogged anything from LiViD, and whether that has been unconsciously on purpose, of if I have just missed the deliveries with my absences, I don't know.  But for the year prior to that, almost every post I did for LiViD I did in combination with one of the most amazing women to ever walk this planet.  Last April she left this world which was filled with pain and illness for her, and entered the world of angels, which is appropriate, since that was her name.  When I saw the delivery at the end of last week from LiViD I actually smiled and got excited about doing a post with my friend on my mind.  I could hear her in my ear as I decorated this scene, "put this there", "that looks stupid woman, move that thing," and instead of feeling the intense sense of loss that has accompanied my thoughts of her over the year, I was smiling and blew a kiss to the heavens, it was refreshing, to say the least.  Grief is a fickle flower in my opinion, because it often jumps up to bite you at the most unexpected times, and it isn't until a moment like this that you realize you have moved past the grief to a better place.  I miss her terribly and every day she is on my mind but it no longer paralyzes me, and I hope those who shared her light are starting to feel the same way.  And to celebrate that, let's have a tea party with your local witches or the Coven next door.


LiViD has released two different tea collections in April, the Coven Tea Party set is a new release in the store that comes complete with tables, chairs, tea, as well as Tea Leaf Reading and Rune sets, and an adorable black cat curled up on the ottoman.  Also, the Witches Tea Party set is party of the Egg Hunt going on in the store, which has several pieces not featured here so make sure to "hop" by the store and get your hunt on to check out all the truly fabulous pieces from LiViD.  Every piece in both collections is incredibly well made and textured with an amazing attention to detail.  Check out that leather texture!  It is truly gorgeous and you can count on these chairs becoming a permanent part of my home (when I finally get one set up again)!  I love all the little details in these sets, like the Raven holding the invitation, tea leaf reading cups, to the Black Hat Society Memorial which I thought belonged up on the mantle, but of course pick yours up and decorate until your heart is content!  Be sure to check out the list below so you can also pick up the altar from Soy as well as the pentacle rug from unKindness, a past release, which happen to work quite nicely with the sets from LiViD.  Enjoy your shopping and remember being a witch isn't just about Halloween, so invite your favorite witch over for some tea and make their heart happy!
