So I’m not Samwise and my kids aren’t Mr Frodo and there aren’t really Elves per say. However, we are going to Lothlorien!
Lothlorien is part of Elvin H.O.M.E. Inc, (Holy Order of Mother Earth) a federal 501c3 organization. Lothlorien is 109 acres of forested hills and valleys located at the edge of Southern Indiana’s limestone belt.
Lothlorien is a place where all earth-respecting religions, spiritual paths and beliefs are honored and respected, from those who see divinity in Earth itself to those who regard Earth as a sacred trust to those who view pragmatic protection of our common home as just common sense.
They have numerous ceremonies and festivals there. The two biggest being Elf Fest (In May for Beltane) and Wild Magick Gathering (Autumn Equinox in September). They also have smaller Festivals for Solstice, Independence Day, God/doess retreats, The Witches Ball (Halloween/Samhain related), Thanksgiving, and Yule!
So Thursday started the Wild Magick Gathering Festival. We will be going down on Saturday and spending the entire day there with the kids. They are really excited to see everything and participate in the drum circle and dancing. With it being cooler it’s also the perfect time of year to go! We’ll have to take jackets and warm stuff for the dark though.
We plan on going down for the Witches Ball in October too. I would love to go down for Yule, it would be inside obviously and is an overnight deal. So we’ll see if I can talk the H into that.
Would you all like to see photos from the festival? I’m hoping you will want to lol. I’ll try and take a lot and who knows? Maybe we will see the elves after all
I’ve told Loki we are representing yo! We’ll see how it goes
altar box for the fae plus details
i made the box on friday i completely revamped the exterior of the box plus u open it up and im gonna put all kinds of crystals and herbs inside !
the piano is a music box i found at my thrift shop that plays “we’ve only just begin” and one of the bottles has honey in it, the other has tiny gems
a white candle and some smooth black stones as well as a dried rose
the basket and small bottle have sea glass in them and the pink rocks are scent rocks!
This is one of the most delicate and prettiest little altars I’ve seen! I love it!! I used to have a music box that I wish I still had for my altar. It played The Age of Aquarius lol
Does anyone else ever wonder what might be lurking in the fog? In some cultures they say when it’s foggy spirits can pass from one world into the next.
Have you ever seen anything….odd in the fog?
