So, I became a mom to 107 new succulent babies that arrived yesterday! Yay! Added to my 28 already that are part of Faery gardens and topiaries that makes 135! These new ones are part of “project decoration” for my office/faery/bunny/cosmic magick creation and play room to come. Can’t wait! Will share the finished product when complete. 🌱
It’s not a number I planned or anything. It just turned out that way and I kind of like the 9 energy of it creating a full cycle. There may be more to come, but for now these should do.
And today I got word that the second part of “project decoration” has shipped out and is on the way. All of this, plus some other things all seem to be coming together in perfect timing, as I haven’t been able to set up my room yet, but will be able to in the next week or two.
I LOVE succulents and find them so easy and fun to love and nurture, and with a very short growing season here in Lake Tahoe, I’m much more apt to create indoor Faery gardens as extensions of the Great Outdoors brought indoors, than spending tons of time with that externally except for simple things, rock gardens, and such. Especially since I spend so much time out in Nature.
Besides, I have a whole forest as my backyard, so everything is naturally manicured by Mother Nature.
So my intent is to create my room like an indoor Faery garden itself and like an extension of the forest, inside with portals and fun, so that when I AM inside and working on creative projects, I will feel like I’m out in Nature still and in my own creative, cosmic reality.
Faery fun soon to begin! WEEEEE! Can’t wait!
These are simply magickal in every way…divine portals in the woodlands of Southern France. Thank you Shay for sharing these with me…you always know what speaks to my heart!

And for more information, here’s Jenny Zhang of http://www.mymodernmet.com sharing about Spencer Byles’ creations:
Deep in the woods of southern France, artist Spencer Byles transformed the forest into a mysterious wonderland through a series of spectacular, organic sculptures. Byles spent a year immersed in the woodlands of La Colle sur Loup, Villeneuve-Loubet, and Mougins for this ambitious project. Surrounded by flora and fauna, the sculptor used only cables and natural, found materials to create his stunning, large-scale works of art.
According to Byles, many people come across his sculptures by chance in the woods. Met with the sight of towering, woven structures and suspended symbols made of twined branches, the viewer may question whether the mysterious installations were formed naturally, assembled by human hands, or left in the forest by supernatural forces.
The ephemeral nature of Byles’ creations is integral to his work, as each piece exists in its completed state for only as long as the elements permit. The sculptor says, “The temporary nature of my sculptures is an important aspect of my experiences and understanding. I feel my sculptures are only really completed when nature begins to take hold again and gradually weave its way back into the materials. At this point it slowly becomes part of nature again and less a part of me.”
