Pure Delight!

This past Valentine’s Day marked some very special transitions. David and I held our own lovely celebration, but that day also opened a new era in my personal life, especially related to writing fiction. Always in eerie sync, my sweet friend Tania Marie opened her new Etsy shop that day. She had texted me previews of the photos, but clicking on The Magick Rabbit shop link brought new levels of delight.

As I sat at my writing desk in my blue office, staring at the waterfall tapestry with a blue velvet “watery” chair beneath, I just knew I needed a “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea DIY Rabbit Fairy Crystal Garden Kit in Tortoise Finish Indoor Planter Pot Seashell Conch Fairy House.” How could I resist? This precious little bunny in a boat makes me smile every time I see him:

I love all of Tania’s whimsical creations. If I had the room, I would give every single one a spot, but I love this one the best. I also wanted to support Tania’s new venture, and it felt like a perfect Love Day gift to my creative spirit and inner child. I understood the concept: Tania procures and designs the “gardens,” ships them to you, and then you can assemble per the original design or make your own. I was not prepared for all the fun, though!

The box synchronously arrived on Tania’s birthday:

It felt like my birthday, too! Look at the adorable packaging, customized to me with a fox and owl:

In fact, the package critters were so cute that I added them to decked out walls of my office closet turned secret library:

Then I got back to assembling the “Voyage,” which also coincided with me reaching the part in “The Lord of the Rings” where they hear the falls of Lothlórien. At first, I situated him at the foot of the falls, seen here from my writing desk:

That’s a nice spot for him, but my office walls have all that blue. The next thing I knew, it was “row, row, row, your rabbit, gently down the stream … merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream” … all the way back ‘o’ beyond to my blue desk:

He likes both harbors, and I can see him either way. Under the blue desk, he sits beneath “Arthur,” aka “The Blue Lemurian,” also from Tania:

Almost exactly a year ago, I found Arthur “activated,” so you can see it’s a potent spot:

As of this morning, my little boat bunny returned to the waterfall/chair zone:

It’s a joyful journey for both of us, wherever he rows. So silly, I know, but I do love creating spaces and “listening” to the tales they tell. Sacred Decorating makes life extra special. Thank you to Tania for TheMagickRabbit shop. And thank you to everyone who continues to engage with childlike wonder and beauty. I’ll leave you with Enya’s Lothlórien, inspired by “The Lord of the Rings,” from her Shepherd Moons CD:

From Wikipedia:

In J. R. R. Tolkien‘s legendarium, Lothlórien or Lórien is the fairest realm of the Elves remaining in Middle-earth during the Third Age.[3]

The realm, a broad woodland valley, plays an important part in The Lord of the Rings[4] as the Elven centre of resistance against Sauron and is a symbol for the Elves’ aesthetics of preservation[5] which provides a space ‘out of time’ for the characters who both live and visit there.[6]

  1. Aww, I’m so happy you love him and his mini world. It’s so perfect in your room with the colors and energy. The theme of his adventure parallels yours. It makes my heart smile to see how cherished he is and that these creations are touching people’s hearts and inspiring creativity and inner child joy. That’s why Astrid and I created them, birthing on Love Day and sharing a birthday celebration sale through end of today. So much pure imagination flowing. Love you! 💚

  2. Love you, too! Yes, I can’t stop smiling at him. The colors, the blue glass and blue moss “waves,” the shells, the faery house … all of it. Just so special. Love to you and Astrid! ❤

  3. I can feel the joy and the motion of the ocean in your words! Yay! That’s how I feel looking around my office and at all these gardens housed next door in the guest room for now. I’m likely secretly trying to figure out how to make an enchanted rabbit house to display them all 😉

    I just love this sweet share from dear Laura about her magickal mini rabbit garden that floated into her life. There are many beautiful tie-ins with the one she chose that make it meaningful and we couldn’t be happier to hear how its tickled her heart, as it has ours. She has a great link in the post also about Sacred Decorating – something she and I both feel strongly about and the mention of the Blue Quartz, Arthur, also ties in with all of the recent crystal activity that continues. We (Astrid and I) are so moved by all of the wonderful words and experiences we’re hearing as feedback from our creations that are finding their way into people’s hearts and homes. It means so much to us that they are doing what we had hoped, inspiring creativity in others and sprinkling some joy, inner child wonder, and enchantment into people’s hearts. One of the things I love most is inspiring others to tap into their creativity more, especially when they feel they aren’t creative, have a creative block, or feel they don’t have time, and part of why we created these mini rabbit garden wonderlands. I’m so happy to continue hearing feedback that reflects this is actually in activation. Thank you so much Laura and everyone. And for anyone else who feels drawn to a little extra magick, you can still bring something sparkly home at discount today at https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheMagickRabbit
