White Wonderland Portal

Hello Everyone,

I am wishing for everyone on the planet, deep peace, much beauty and lots of love.

Today I made something to keep my mind off of events of late,

But again,

breathe....breathe again........

I seem to be craving a cooler place, a whiter place, a sparkling place, and its not here in South Florida.

I want a bit of this........

 and a tiny bit, for a short time.....of this......


but alas.......


I had to find something to do and I saw something online as I was browsing for chandeliers because I need a tiny one for my bedroom, and I found something so enchanting,

and since I had a hangy thingy I didn't know what I was going to do with, but I knew something, well, this picture became my inspiration for what to do and I had everything, so no cost, and those are the best!
The advice said to just add some pearly Christmas garland and some snowflakes and ornaments and add them to your chandelier and that's it! I can do that! even without a chandelier because I had a silver hangy thingy I picked up from the thrift for $2  that I just KNEW would come in very handy soon  :D

So I made one.

It's not a light, not a candle holder, has no purpose really but it looks like it can be a portal device to a Wintery Magical Land like this.........

or this.........

it could couldn't it ???

So I thought making this device was in good strong order!

This thingy was rusted a bit and had some cheapy plastic crystals that I removed, then I spray painted it....

Then I went through all my Christmas things and took out the clear and sparkly pretties and it looked so beautiful all together!.....I haven't used these things for years.

And this crystal tassel I just got from Michaels as the star of this little show.....

some details of the things I had, acrylic prisms in a jar.......I had to make hooks for all of these.....

beautiful iridescent glass snowflake and an iridescent heavy crystal prism....a few of those...

years ago I bought these wired pearl garlands for a couple dollars each....I never used them....
and some old loonngg white pearl strand garland for trees I haven't used since I don't do Victorian Trees anymore :D

glass irridescent icicles which I love!......can't find them anymore.....

Then I slowly began to put it together, and I got this......eventually.

No sun but it still looks purdy :D

The sun came out and I just knew this would look more beautiful and it sparkled alot!

white and sparkly.......

I think its purdy, :D:D:D and its a source of smiles when I see it and it will remind me of Winter somewhere, not here, and a Wonderland, I'm trying to create here....and sparkly light reflecting magical things.

I'm leaving it outside.

I think I love these kinds of things because they remind of me the sparkly light of the Inner Spirit and the stars in the cosmos......cannot get enough of the sparkle!

You can make one too.....what do you have lying around that you can use in a different way??

Magical blessings for a Sparkly New Year!

Welcome to White Bohemian Beauty

Welcome to White Bohemia,

where my love and embracing of White in all its shades is at home with me and where I bring it to life, in a life in which I have always celebrated my unconventional ways, rejecting a robotic society and finding wisdom and sanity along the way. It suits the life of this Domestic Mystic who makes a Sanctuary out of 1100 square feet of Earthly real estate, who makes what was mundane, magical.... and what was secular, Sacred. It is the Holy Spirit within that makes it so, and is why I have called myself A Domestic Mystic, as so many of us are.

"Three Graces" by Botticelli

This is a new place, a fresh face, one that had been not lost, not destroyed, but only buried by a lifetime business of a loud outer noise called "the real world", a patriarchal one, in which I have finally fully rejected in a Spiritual Coup d'etat to create another kind of world of my own, a beautiful, pristine, white, serene sanctuary.....a proper place for my soul.....where prose becomes poetry and less is more. I'm feeling the power of this two fold gesture, the full out rejection of the vulgar and simultaneous reward of what I'm creating. I know alot of women in blogland and elsewhere have done just this, create that nourishing Home, to keep them sane in an insane world.

"Mother Mary" by Cher Lyn

I have been inspired by so many women of this world who have done just this. I have been inspired too the Grand Dames of White Living Bloggers showing that it CAN be done......a way to manifest this Heavenly White Frequency into the world I live in, make what I possess inside, visible and tangible in the outer world.....a world that has been so brutal to my gentle soul that it hid for so long and didn't want to manifest anything. I believe it is an Angelic Frequency, and I am at Home in this.

And thus, finally I have found a better way to silence the noise of the outside, and create something that did not exist before......where now silence is sweet and soothing instead of uncomfortable. This Sacred Silence comes in the form of quiet for the eyes, and peace for the ears, while the senses within this silence are then invited to become heightened, more sensitized to take in the voluptuous beauty of the Spiritual World. The unfolding continues to be profound.

Here in this blog I will be expressing what is happening in my now Whitened Life, and whatever I find to be beautiful, spiritual, some occasional rants, and more.
And  maybe hopefully inspire those still quiet and gentle souls who have hitherto been in hiding, to come out, come out of hiding, because the piece of land you walk upon desperately needs you, your gentle soul, your White Spirit to manifest itself where it lives now.


I welcome both myself and all of you to a fresh White, and expansively imaginative world.....where the Spirit is Innocent, Wild and Free.

Please join me and invite your White Loving friends to come and visit and play with me in this venture that is  this Love of White.

About Me

"Where better to care for the soul than in the details of our daily lives?....The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought... An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul, to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination where we find value, love and union with the world around us. As mystics of many religions have taught, that sense of rapturous union can give a sense of fulfillment that makes life purposeful and vibrant." ~ Thomas Moore.
