Gumball machines, lucky dips, tombolas– I love them all. Perhaps it’s the anticipation, or that it reminds us that everything and nothing is random. Sometimes things find us, or we find things.
Summer is the perfect time to try your luck– I’m having a Lucky Dip for the next two weeks in July. With every total purchase of £25 pounds or more, the gods of randomness will select a prize for you. You can suggest to them that you would like either a necklace, ring, earrings or a bookmark, with the secret code “luckydip” left in the “comments to seller” box at checkout. Bare in mind the gods can be tricksters and may switch prizes if one has run out! Giveaway is good only at my independent shop, feralstrumpet.net
I’ve been adding new vintage pieces every week– colourful, fun pieces that are perfect for summer.
A blessed Litha to all my friends, readers and shop supporters. This longest day brings many blessings– not least of which is a little Victorian terrace house for my husband and I, right outside the medieval city walls of York. Finally, we might be able to put down roots and perhaps our nomadic lives can shift to nesting in earnest.
I compiled this Flower Moon treasury on Etsy in honor of tomorrow’s esbat. Right now the cottage garden is alive with an ever-changing array of blooms, like a kaleidoscope of days the spring is passing into summer. What are you doing this full moon to celebrate?
