hey hi hello ✨
so today i re-arranged my bedroom & i love how it’s turning out, a change is needed sometimes to remove old, stagnant energies.
consequently, i moved where my altar is placed, and, in true casey fashion; i changed the set-up!! [again😂] here is a sneak peak [pictures tomorrow??] ft. my beautiful, huge, new pine-cone 🌲 im loving my altar space right now, it’s probably looking the best it ever has + i’m super excited to show you tomorrow 🌞
anyway, i’ll speak to you guys either later on this evening or tomorrow 💖✨🌙
It's Self-Love Monday !!🤘😀🖤⠀
The last of the Year 😱⠀
So I thought I'd jump on the #bestnine train and talk about goals, achievements, and take a few minutes to remind each and everyone of you that WE MADE IT !!⠀
We made it to another year, lots has happened, good and bad, but we're here and we all have things to be proud of and celebrate 🥳🤗⠀
Looking back, 2018 has been crazy, intense and amazing for me. I had lots of goals, didn't do or finish all of them but I reached some of the most important and scary so a big fucking YAY to that 🍾⠀
And even though sad and scary things happened too, looking back, I'm getting out of this year feeling confident, empowered, inspired, proud and happy.⠀
And that's something, hell yeah !!⠀
My journey here on Instagram with you all has been just the best, I adooore the exchanges we have, the real friends I've made, how we get each other and how inspiring this community I'm lucky to have, is 🙏🖤✨⠀
I am beyond grateful for you all reading, not reading and the people who don't know me but that I follow and admire !⠀
This year, one of the things I'm proud of is that I worked hard, chased my dreams and listened more to my heart, because everything I wanted to achieve and dreamt of is happening. ✨⠀
So, how about you ? How do you feel about 2018 ?⠀
Share with me in the comments at least one thing that makes you proud of yourself this year !! I want the comments section to be overloaded with cool accomplishments from badass people 🤘♥️⠀
This top 9 is fun to look at, there's bit of everything in it haha except for abstracts but they were sooo close behind haha too bad :p⠀
Do you have a favorite ? :)⠀
Have the best Self-Loving Monday and again congrats to making it to another year !! 🖤✨⠀
The Wood Wife
In the deep Nordic forests it’s the Wood Wife who rules the realm!
As much a part of the forest as it is a part of her, she is able to take the form of any animal, a tree, a rock, or even a patch of moss.
When she’s feeling a bit more human the Wood Wife is said to resemble an old female troll with sagging breasts which she likes to throw over her shoulders to keep them out of the way!
However, she can also sometimes appear in the form of a stunningly beautiful woman.
There will always be something just a little bit “off” about her though. Her back might be covered with a layer of bark, her skin may have a greenish glow, or she may even have the hooves and tail of a goat.
The Wood Wife has complete power and control over her woodland domain, and whoever enters her forest must do so on her terms.
She can be extremely unpredictable and tricksy, or helpful and kind as the mood takes her.
When she’s feeling kindly she will look after children who become lost in the woods, and help to find missing cattle.
But at other times she will distort people’s vision so they loose their way in the trees and wander forever in circles. The only way to combat this is to turn your clothing inside out and this will set you on the right path once again.
Another way to avoid the Wood Wife’s wrath is to leave her offerings of coins of food placed on a tree stump.
This will ensure that travellers can pass safely through the forest and that any hunters can shoot as much game as they wish without angering her.
Sometimes the Wood Wife will try to seduce a man who wanders through her woodland home. If a man starts a relationship with her he will find it extremely hard and even dangerous to end it. This is because the Wood Wife can destroy him with her powers by driving him mad or making him seriously ill.
If the man is happy to stay with her though he will be successful in all his ventures and live a happy and prosperous life!
Have you heard of the Wood Wife before?
Will you be taking offerings of coins with you next time you go for a walk in the woods?
Better safe than sorry, right?!

Why are cacti and succulents so cute?? As much as I love flowers, the thought of having little cacti plant babies around the house is very appealing. Are you a cacti or succulent parent? What’s it like taking care of them? 🌵
How do you like to decorate your home for the holidays? Do you celebrate Yule, Christmas, or something else? How do you think your spirituality affects how you decorate your space? For me, I celebrate both Yule & Christmas. I try to decorate for Yule by using as many natural materials (like the tree, garlands, and candles) as possible to bring nature inside and remind myself of the beauty of this season. Though, I also celebrate Christmas with my family as they are Christian and I’m totally fine with the idea of celebrating both holidays. After all, there are so many Christmas traditions & decorations that originate from Pagan Europe. What holiday do you celebrate and how do you like to decorate for it? 🎄
So what was supposed to be #fridayintroductions became #mondayintroductions because I forgot. 😂 rest in pieces.
I've been getting a lot of new followers lately, and while most of them have been bots, this is for those of you with a pulse.
NOW FOR THE INTRO: My name is Prue, and I'm an pro artist (currently on an art hiatus for health reasons, but planning a graphic web series) and hobby writer! 🖌
I'm wife to a pro gamer named Alex, who loses to no one but me 🤣 and mom to a aggressively adorable black cat named Phephe.
We currently live in Eastern Washington but dream of our forever home in Portland, OR where we want to open a brick & mortar store for ecclectic and wonderful things, like handmade soaps, wooden toys and magical potions that may or may not make you taller. 🤞
I love magical and mythical aesthetics, and my favorite things (after God and my hubby) are the moon, crystals, candles and plants ... I guess you could say I'm pretty witchy but what woman ::since the beginning of time:: with a voice of her own, a bag of essential oils and a green thumb wasn't? 😂
I'm also a member of the #spoonie community, and have several chronic health conditions which limits my energy most of the time, but I'm on track to semi recovery, and am always trying to keep those positive vibes up as high as possible. ✌
Please, leave a little something in the comments so we can get to know each other and be friends! 😘
How perfectly dreamy is this dream catcher by @byamillia ???
Little fairy wings and baby roses! The details are just magical!!
