Dinner now over, everyone moves into the log cabin’s cozy living room, filled with antiques and art.
Settling herself in a large comfortable chair, Ocean begins opening and enjoying the various gifts that some of her friends have chosen to give her to celebrate this birthday.
A beautiful nautilus shell from Ghostie
who clearly knows my love for spirals and seashells!
A Learjet…so I can fly to Ireland any time I want! Thanks, Vikee!
A fairy goblet from Wolf Wind…
which will certainly come in handy for enjoying my mead!
A wave from the ocean, as photographed by Robin
What could be better?
A beautiful candle, just waiting to be lit in celebration of my special day!
A gift from Gigi
Knowing my love for handwoven items,
Kristen has given me this gorgeous jacket.
A Tiffany-Design Journal Book from Cedar
Perfect for jotting down thoughts and ideas for future books!
“Advice From a Horse” pillows given by Crystal
Perfect for satisfying the equine lover in me!
A beautiful Mosaic Ashiko Drum, to replace the one stolen from my car
A gift from Hawk
Because she knows my love for spirals, handmade pottery, and teapots
A teapot and matching teacups from Willow
FireSpirit gave me this beautiful pair of earrings
made with ocean jasper beads & brown sea glass worn smooth by the waves
To honor my love of both Ireland and horses,
here is Jane’s gift of a hand-carved wood wall plaque
representing Epona, the Celtic Goddess of Horses
Ireland may soon have a rival for my list of favorite international places to visit…
once I return from my all-expenses paid trip to Barcelona, Spain!
I’m packing my bags for this gift from David
From Dave comes a new home to relax and enjoy.
“For your birthday, I found the perfect home.
I give this to you so:
you can have firm Earth under you;
the peace of Water to meditate by;
plenty of Air to renew your soul;
the Fire of inspiration (and no fear of setting your house ablaze)”
Once I get back from my Spain trip, my bags and I will move right in!
And when I feel the need to get away from it all and escape to nature
I can do it in this Mini Pop-Up Camper Trailer
A gift from Hawk and Willow
Robin sends me a Magickal Ball of Birthday Wishes
with this photograph of a dandelion
These delightful little birds, an actual species known as
Purple Crowned Fairy Wrens
have been summoned by Wolf Wind to delight us all
and wish me a most blessed Happy Birthday
What wonderful presents!
I have throughly enjoyed each and every one of them.
A very heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you for your gifts,
and especially the gift of friendship.
As the sun begins to set, the lights are turned off, the candelabra is lit, and the birthday cake is brought out to the acclaims of all:
Then grabbing a cupcake, everyone heads back outside to sit around the fireplace and enjoy the flames.
Thank you for joining me at my party.
