Fresh & Fun ~ Autumn Kicks Off With New Vibe & Shop Updates
I was hoping to get the Magick Rabbit Shop updates posted yesterday, but this week was fuller than planned, yesterday was Equinox hair and intentions refresh time, and the Autumn vibes plus good quality air again have had us back out enjoying Nature immersions. But here we are, as promised with a small shop update of a few seasonal treats and some fun vintage, one-of-a-kind, discontinued, or simply whimsical wardrobe pick-me-ups.
These are just transitional items, as I had inspiration to create just a handful of sweet Autumn pieces – all of them under $20 each – to include three enchanted decorative/gift items and one simple necklace. I only have one of each. You’ll find them in the Magick Pumpkins, Autumn Magick and Crystal Pendants sections.
And then, of course, the clothing pieces that you’ll find in the Closet/Vintage/Thrift section. I’ve had a lot of people ask me about the rabbit and whimsical clothing I find and if I can let them know where to get them, or find some for them. So, I decided both to put up an “Out of Closet” offering of a couple of my own pieces and then also procured a few vintage, unique, or discontinued items from various places I thought you might like. There’s currently 8 pieces available and you can check back, as I may have a couple more when I get time.
Again, both the seasonal and clothing items are a fun detour for just right now that I felt inspired to add.
The last new items you’ll find are two custom listings.
These can be found in the Custom Magick Portals and Custom Magick Chests sections. I have a limited number of each and once they’re gone I won’t be getting/creating more. There’s 5 Magick Portal size options and 12 Magick Keepsake Chests. These will be available until they run out. People have asked about commissioning these pieces and things like wondering if I could do their animal companions, etc. so now there’s an option.
All of the details are in the listings, as to ideas for inspiration on how you might want these created and how you use them, but I’ve included some of that below.
For instance, alongside painting your Magick Portal theme choice, they can also be adorned with crystals and/or feathers if so desired. The Magick Keepsake Chests will also be hand painted and crystals are an option there too.
For each, here are ideas:
Of course I love painting Magick Rabbits, but am open to other enchanting ideas. Other things I love to paint include faeries, gnomes, animals, flowers, plants, mushrooms, butterflies, dragonflies, and anything Nature, Cosmic, faery tale, or magickally themed. I have also loved creating crystal illumination portals that are painted around a particular crystal or crystals as a way to harness and focus the crystal’s energy into your space and life. Other ideas include adorning the perimeter of the plaques with crystals and creating an amplified portal or looking glass into another world or energetic experience. Another idea is to have these painted with your beloved animal companions to celebrate, honor, and cherish them forever.
The Magick Portals are created on cross-cut, oval, round and irregular-shaped basswood plaques that have a finely sanded surface and natural bark around the outer edge. They can be placed in a stand, leaned against a shelf, wall, or top of a mantle. Or, if you desire hanging it, we can discuss options when you order. They can also make a great base for candlescapes, flower arrangements, or the base of an altar space.
And of course the Magick Keepsake Chests are the perfect place to store special jewelry, crystals, hand written notes to yourself of nurturing and intentions, to keep keys easy to find, safe-keep special little mementos and treasures, are sweet gift boxes, and make wonderful Reiki boxes. The ways in which these can be used is only limited by your imagination. Some people use chests to store the ashes of beloved companions or other memories of their sweet babies.
Anyway, these are the new additions for now that Astrid and I felt inspired to add to the Magick Rabbit Shop.
Last night the sweet little bats were at it again, flying above our deck. Some of the things bats symbolize are transition, initiation, and new beginnings – basically rebirth.
And yesterday’s Equinox was a symbolic rebirthing or recreating of sorts for me, as I chopped off 15 inches of my hair! Yes, that’s right….15 inches. Since the average hair grows at a rate of about 1/2 an inch per month, that’s about 2 1/2 years of growth that went buh-bye with a quick snip-snip!
Anytime I let go of that much hair at once, it is a huge release. And although I didn’t do anything drastic with styling this time – keeping it very simple for now – it still was drastic to drop that many inches overnight and release all that was stored in those ends from the years of stuff they contain.
So my intention of fresher, lighter, and softer was achieved. I feel freer and even more invigorated. Also feels fun and more reflective of my childlike ways and sense of wonder.
And I have to say I really love it and my hair stylist did exactly what I envisioned for this initial change. I even had fun doing a mini selfie photoshoot to celebrate the new vibe fresh off the presses, as they say! And to honor and anchor the deeper transformation that is taking place within and without. I feel that a pause of presence with each step, including bigger initiative ones, is important and to take stock of how far we’ve come, what we’ve been able to overcome, and what we’ve created. There’s enough “out there” that can put a damper on things, so to celebrate hurdles and milestones, as well as even the smaller steps without known outcomes, and the ways in which we have opportunity to make life brighter, are worth taking pause for.
Dave was busy with some things so I just snapped away on my own. Weeeeeee!
I always wondered what my natural silver stripe highlights would look like with shorter pieces of hair around the face, but I actually think they ended up looking more face-framing and perhaps even, artistically deliberate (more so in person, as you can see them a great deal more).
I love that my silver feels fully integrated into who I am now. I don’t know me without it anymore, and I celebrate what it stands for and all of me that is embedded in each strand. Chopping off the ends also leaves my hair fully natural of outgrown old transitions I went through creative exploration with. And fully me is where I stand now and always.
Indeed a new vibe is sweeping through here with fresh, fun energies.
Not only did the shop and my hair get a little pick-me-up change, but many other aspects of my life have and are too. Even my garden and yard between now and the weekend are reflecting my hair and our shop, as they will have new babies planted for Spring and old growth cut back to prep for the Winter. 🙂
Do you find yourself in any way changing and refreshing aspects of you, your inner world, or parts of your life?
Cheering and loving you on.
