Some of the most amazing art that I have ever seen is something that can be worn. Look at how gorgeous these lariats are. Can you imagine a wonderful fairy, elf, or other fantasy costume with this spectacular embellishment?
I own a Merimask original, and I can honestly state that her work is impeccable. Every detail is hand-carved and labored over, so you are truly getting a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Please check out her shop and share!

It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “Find your passion” and “Know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.

Them: So you’re dying paper with witch tea.
A very black metal moth visitor - Clymene Moth, Haploa clymene. I’ve always wanted to see one of these and finally one has stopped by my place.
The Clymene Moth is a moth of the Tiger Moth family. Clymene is the name of several characters in Greek mythology, one a Titan, and another a nymph, wife of Helios the sun god. Perhaps the latter origin fits the moth best.

Hindwing has 1-2 dark brown spots near anal angle. Wing Span: 4 - 5.5 cm. Life History: Conspicuous on leaves during the day; active both day and night.Caterpillar Hosts: Eupatorium species, oaks, peach, and willow trees; other plants.
