Welcome Breed !

I've been looking forward to putting together this Treasury for weeks now... Inspired by the beautiful sunny weather and 80F temperatures today... I took the leap towards the sunbeam ! "Welcome Breed, ohhhhh Breed is come, Breed is Welcome !"

Brighid, Brigit,
Breed, Brit
... Brigid, a Celtic Goddess of many spellings highlights this Treasury dedicated to our upcoming cross quarter sabbat... a ceremony also known as Imbolc, Candlemass, the feast of St Brighid and the festival of lights.

Imbolc, St Brigid's day, Candlemass, the festival of lights is fast approaching !

Up here in the mountains of No. California, it is a magical time when we experience a spring in the midst of our rainy winters.

It is a time for reflection & a time to feel light renewing within ourselves.

I've been cleaning house, watering my gardens, pruning my apple trees & getting ready to make this year's apple wood Brigid Crosses...

"Brizel Brigit Crosses are a very unique adaptation of a Brigid Cross, made of apple wood which i grow and prune myself, and is perfect for your home or as a house warming blessing gift !

The wood is carefully sewn together with colored hemp string... purple in the center and an elemental/directional color for each of the arms of the cross. There is a loop at the back for it to hang from.

This particular Brizel apple wood Brigit Cross measures approx 5.5" x 5.5" (14 cm)

If you'd like me to custom create a Brigid Cross for a specific household... please see this listing:
