save the faeries home!

next door to my home is a vacant block of land... not very big, just over 1/4 of an acre... it is a wild jumble of plants - grasses, blackberry, wattle trees and old fruit trees from a long ago orchard..... and among the tumble of plants live faeries, gnomes and dryads, I am sure......

I think I see an orb in the middle of the photo, but I am not sure

yesterday, I heard a tap, tap and looking out my window I saw a real estate agent hammering in a sign - FOR SALE.. I am devastated... we can't afford the asking price of $200,000 so all day yesterday I was manifesting a means of buying it... I rubbed my wishing bowl (the one Sr.K sent me) with spikenard oil and put a note in saying that we wish to buy it, I placed a garnet (a stone of Mary Magdalene), a citrine for abundance and a moss agate for the land... and I blew my hardest into that bowl... I called in my ancestors, Mary Magdalene and the faeries... and I am calling in the gnomes.... they are the guardians of the land, so I am sure they will help me somehow..... and I am asking each of you, my friends to be on my team to save this small block of land here in Woodford, for the faeries - just a wish sent out to the moon and stars or sign my petition to the Goddess(let me know if you want to sign it and I will write your name on a piece of paper and drop it into my dreaming bowl) .... I want to own it and keep it just as it is... wild and carefree... not with some monstrosity of a new home built of bricks and aluminium....but a gorgeous wild parcel of land, where faeries and elves can be. Where birds and butterflies can fly and dragonflies can hover....

the past month or so, I have been doing a intuitive art class, where you wack the paint on the canvas and let it speak to you... this is what I did yesterday:.. started off with a blue background, having no idea what I wanted to paint and when the background dried, there was an outline of a mermaid.. (more to do on her of course.. but I just let it come when it is ready!)

we are off to the Gypsy Caravan this weekend, being the Queen's birthday weekend, we get a long weekend with Monday a public holiday... it is raining but I don't mind.. I love walking on the beach in the rain and this time I hope to find something to make my runes from... and maybe a small piece of driftwood to make a sea-side wand from.....
don't forget to visit the Enchanted Forest... time will fly and it will be closed before you blink!

Please add my name.

We have been a similar situation when we lived in Toronto. A lovely piece of unused land owned by the railways. It was full of wildflowers, tree's, foxes and all kind of wildlife. We thought it was safe but it wasn't. It was bought by a developer and now it's full of these tall, narrow four storey homes that are going up everywhere.

I'm glad I don't live there anymore...

Add me to your goddess petition I have faith they will do the right by all.

I don't why someone want to live in a monstrosity home.
I find it on greedy side.
There people who don't have any place to live.

Sacred Suzie said...

Perhaps you can do a dreamboard for it? I'm doing one and helping others get ready for the full moon? I think this is perfect for you Robyn, that wild land is gorgeous and should be yours!

May your wish come true, and that you can preserve that piece of enchanted land! xoxoxo

Bimbimbie said...

Of course add my name on behalf of the birds and dragonflies and fairyfolk to keep that a wild place for them and you xxSmilesxx *!*

tinker said...

Please add my name! I hope and pray you can somehow keep it that way. They've been building all over the fields down the hill from us, and it's so sad to see it all go away like that. Keeping my fingers crossed for you~XOXO

oh put my name to the Goddess petition and i shall send out my thoughts when i attend my alter.
so much beautiful open land is vanishing these days to developers and it is heartbreaking. a farmer is soon to be selling a wood up the lane from us and like you we would never be able to afford it but being where were are i dont think anyone would get planning permission~fingers crossed

Island Girl Spirit said...

The Mermaid is beautiful! You can write my name down on the Goddess Petition, and the land and your idea will be in my thoughts and prayers . . . Blessed Be, Kel.

motherwintermoon said...

Add my name to the Goddess petition. I'm sending prayers to Mother Earth to save the wildness of this piece of land. May your wishes to preserve it manifest into reality.

I can hear Joni Mitchell singing, "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

LoVe the mermaid, she is delightful!

When I was up in Scotland last year I was staying at St. Fillans. A developer had started to build around their fairy stone.

Whilst I was there I helped the fairies move elsewhere... at least I think so... they were asking for a new home and I think I helped somehow...
