Fairy Cuisine, in the Raw

Pink roses, azalea, sweet lilacs, bleeding hearts, quince blossoms and pansies sit waiting in a bowl. DSC_1633Washed and picked for sugar coating they await their transformation…they will become sugar coated flowers. Lovingly painting their petals with a brush, I cover the flowers  with a special mix of frothy white of egg, a touch of confectioner’s sugar and lemon juice.  Some flowers can be dipped into the liquid. I then pour crystal showers of finely ground, almost powdered castor sugar over them in waves until thee petals are covered. I do it again , catching the empty spots until they are all covered , then allow them to dry. The flowers can be gently placed on a sieve or a screen placed over a plate to catch the excess coating that will drip off the petals  while drying. More o the fine castor sugar can be poured over the drying blossoms and after sitting overnight they will be dry and sugar coated and sparklingly preserved. The crystal covered flowers make wonderful cake decorations , especially for fancy tortes and cakes made with rose petal jam.  DSC_1710DSC_1772


June Roses

ROSEangelaOdalisquetiny2Blessing us with their beauty, the roses bloom, celebrating Midsummer. Regardless of the madness of our human world and the aspects of the stars. they whisper love as summer graces our world once again… filling me with inspiration.Roses


Fire signs… entering Aries

TASHARAINBOWGoldenshaktiAngeltiny copyMars in Sagittarius, trine Sun and Mercury in Aries, all so combustible. We are feeling the aftermath of the eclipse… and must hold on to our vision of love and expanded heart as we transition from  our sojourn in the mystical seas of Pisces into a brave new world…


Libra and Pisces in the Boudoir…

Libra and Pisces make the best photographers and models, I think… Both are double signs and are so sensitive to the other. Libra’s love of harmony becomes an easy flow of give and take, and they create an aura of beauty around themselves and whatever they touch. Pisces intuits and brings out the inner dreams of a subject as a photographer or morphs into any fantasy as a model… This  is a perfect time to indulge in the pleasures of a romantic, boudoir photo shoot. Venus seduces us so cleverly in Aquarius, unique, eccentric  and somewhat detached, while Neptune in Pisces takes us on a flight of dreamy and muted passion. Lit by the Pisces Sun, our spirits opened by Neptune can soar in dreamy flight through a voluptuous sky flowing with grace… Our lens becomes all soft focus now as we flow  with beauty in a cloud of  Pisces love…Angellegsinsatintiny


Madonna of the Lake

JenMadonnatinywThe Madonna of the Healing Waters… The Moon,  recently full in Virgo  in opposition to Neptune, lord of the seas and Chiron the healer, in Pisces  is pulling us. She beckons us to enter the endless sea of Divine Love. A portal opens at every New and Full Moon, and we can sow our seeds of hope in prayer , and manifest our dreams and intentions flowing with her cycles. Birthed at the New Moon in Aquarius, my Madonna is reaching her final stages of completion asNeptune and the Moon pause in their opposition in the skies . She keeps growing and expanding in my minds eye, and I am now ready to bring in the next phase as I pay homage to the Goddess of this potent  Virgo Moon.


Angel Walking

Angelbodytiny.jpgShe walks through mists, and  she dances, stepping lightly through the clouds as Lilith  comes to meet the Sun. Happy  in Aquarius, she floats through Heaven watching , flirting with the stars…

My image has morphed into an Aquarian – a sky clad being… Clouds and sky are breaking through her body and skin.

The Aquarius Sun liberates our spirit with ingenuity, dancing in tandem with the joyous heart of the Leo Moon and freeing us to be inventive in our playfulness and creativity…. and I am feeling it. The planetary lineup has Mercury retrograding as wild Lilith crying out for her freedom and Fortuna join Pluto in the heavens as Neptune casts a dreamy spell upon it all …

NeoVictorian Winter…

 

Siver Fox

Winter has come, and I seek out the old places. Hand carved stone speaks to me –  a lady in red in winter with pearls… Red Velvet and furs and ancient walls.. I walk , and seek others … the bland modernity keeps me in the Victorian streets, away from the modern world encroaching upon everything around me…

Winter velvet

Winter light warms my heart. I am not alone… there are others, and we feel each other…

Gaze in Winter

We seek out the old places to hear whispers from the past..We seek warmth and winter romance…

Our hearts are exposed, wearing red, like roses in the snow… We hear the voices of the past, and step into another world …and find others of our kind in out of the way places… away from the encroachment of modern time… Distillery Steam Punk.
