Witchy Wednesdays – ‘Goddess Garden Table’ by Bryanna Morgath

I haven’t done a ‘Witchy Wednesday’ for a couple of weeks- apologies for that. Oftentimes it’s because I haven’t found a killer item to share, or a new location that you simply have to visit. This week though I’ve been trolling through Xstreet instead, and I wanted to feature the work of one particular creator that I really like, Bryanna Morgath.

Bryanna makes fabulous items at very Witch-friendly prices.
There are thirteen (count em!) pages of her creations upon X-Street, and her work varies from jewellery with a Pagan bent, stained glass paintings, full altar sets, BOS and individual witch items including candles, chalices, geodes and athames.
I wanted to tell you about two of her creations today.
First up is her rather wonderful ‘Goddess Garden Table’. This is a very pretty item to feature on a patio, or if you don’t have a garden in Second Life it brings a touch of the outdoors in for you to enjoy.
This is a purely decorative item, but don’t let that put you off please because it features great textures and is beautifully arranged and acts as a gentle way of displaying your spiritual inclinations towards visitors to your dwelling. I also appreciate the fact that this comes with a temp rezzer, resulting in this item, when placed correctly, being just one prim in value!
I’ve actually installed mine in a corner in my sky box, as you can see from the photo.
The Garden table contains following items:
– 6 pots with plants
– Goddess statue
– Silver candles
– Boline
– 3 gold pentagrams
– some leaves and nuts
– seeds
– incense
– 3 crystal pointers.

As I stated before this is a decorative item only so you can’t remove items from the table surface, but it really doesn’t detract from the worthiness of this piece. Altars are ten a penny, but this is something different and very special indeed, perfect for Hedgewitches! It costs L$102 from Xstreet.
In fact, Bryanna, if you’re reading this I have a request please? Please can you create a companion item to the Goddess Garden in the shape of a small altar? ( I already have the large one that you make but I feel a co-coordinating altar set-up would be a real bonus, especially if the same technology is applied)
I must also honourably mention her BOLINES.

No, I’m not being rude!

A boline is a special, sacred knife used by witches to cut herbs and flowers for placement upon the altar, to be used as offerings or for use in spell work. It’s traditionally white-handled with a curved, crescent shaped blade. I’ve seen many bolines in real life; some are huge scythe-like affairs that can do serious damage, while others are small, tiny almost. A lot of times they are used as decoration rather than in any ritual work, but they’re a great addition to any Witches inventory in real life or second, and luckily for us Bryanna makes and sells two rather lovely examples.

First up is a non-scripted gorgeous ‘Chakra Boline’, featuring crystals upon the blade that co-ordinate in gemstone colours with the chakra points upon the human body. It’s a very simple, elegant bolin which is nicely textured and is a highly affordable L$49.

Slighty more special is her beautiful ‘Gemstone Boline’ Again, this costs L$49 but it has a lot of features. Every prim is texture changeable; there are 52 different gems in total, 4 different stones, 21 different metals and 12 different symbols including the Pentacle, Triquetra and Eye Of Horus amongst others. It’s an absolute bargain for the price and perfect to use in ritual. I’d seriously recommend this if you have a coven in-world, and even if you don’t I personally feel that it’s a must have for any Second Life Witch.

So there you go, some essential items from Bryanna Morgath, and I strongly suggest you check these out along with the rest of her collection very soon..I’m very sure that you’ll be ‘Kitty pleased’ that you did!

PS Bryanna has a store in-world too..It’s at the fabulous ‘Trading Post’ Area upon Gaia Rising.

Feelin’ Blue..

..and purple, and yellow, and all colours of the bruised rainbow inbetween!
Thank you for the messages of support that I have read from the comfort of my bed via my netbook, they’re truly appreciated.

I have managed to keep on top of in-world events, which I’ll address in another post, but for now I just wanted to share a bijou lookette with you featuring one of TRUTH’s weekly hair releases.
I haven’t gone for the ‘bacon’ hair this week, but I have fallen for this gorgeous style called ‘Iris‘, which features an optional beaded tie on one braid. The beads are colour change which allows for mixy-matchy happy with your outfits. Braids are so simple yet so sweet to wear, and this colour change feature makes all the difference and really poshes up the braids a tad. I wish I could get my braids to look like this in real life! Incidentally TRUTH has changed the styling of his blog. I heartily suggest that you go and check it out, and I note that there is a forum feature on there now. I wonder if that will allow us to post pictures of our favourite styles along with pleas for him to create them in-world? Fingers crossed!
As well as the new hairstyle I’m wearing a rather nice flannel dress that I found on XStreet which cost all of L$99. Shock horror! It’s a featured marketplace item from TART replete with mod prims, as well as two skirt options (with or without belt). It’s called ‘Dylan’ and it’s an absolute bargain for the dosh, plus it looks great worn with leggings and flats or heels or boots. Versatile wearing at a super-low price. I love checking out the marketplace items and I’m really chuffed to have made such a great find.
I’m also sporting a rosary from HOD which is my favourite place for piercings in-world. I love the little skull prim on this and it adds an edge to any outfit, and HOD’s collection is very well made if you’re on the look out for something unusual to wear.
Finally the skin is ‘Aline’ by LAQ which is my current favourite. I love the shading on this so much, I know I’ve waxed lyrical about it before so I won’t bore you with the details again, but it is a real treat to wear. I’ve teamed it with ‘Litha’, which is my current shape release and even if I say so myself I think it looks perfect with this skin. Of course the shape is a bargain at L$100 to boot!
It’s reassuring to know that while I recover I look good in at least one of my lives:)

Is it because I is bat?

Don’t panic if you’ve still not got your costume sorted, there are plenty of items across the grid and on Xstreetsl…but hurry up!!
I found this cute Bat outfit earlier – all clothing items (except boots) for L$199 by a company called..wait for it..’Spell cats’.  With a name like that I’m so going to have to check them out in-world aren’t I?
The boots are also an X Street find from Dino Hallard. they’re very nice chunky lace up boots and for L$150 you can’t really say no…
If you’ve got time, make yourself a cuppa and go to the market place on Xstreet and peruse the popular items because there are some great Witchy costumes lurking in there today, as well as some fab skeleton avatars!

It’s going to be a corking Halloween!
