Can't wait for spring, Very Happy
last night it has been snowing again, now it is cold, rainy and stormy.... I am glad to be inside my house.

I had to look up Imbolc, it really follows well last month's challenge of new beginnings, renewal, spiritual cleansing, and yes... not only spiritual cleansing, time to sweep your house and make it all clean and proper... lol! , I am so glad to be on holidays and find time for house cleaning! cat Very Happy

symbols for imbolc
candles, fire, stars, sun
first flowers like snowdrops, crocusses,
ivy and wreath

milk and eggdishes as a symbol for fertility and new life
colours white yellow green..

my bracelet is far too small for all those beads Very Happy so I had a hard choice,
most important the sun circle for me! and that celtic little bead as a replacement for the lovely Brigid's cross...
and transformation...

Very, very beautiful! Love

I can so relate! I love all the seasons, and enjoy winter in December and January. But when February comes, I just long for spring, for the colours and the flowers, the smell of spring in the air and all that really fresh green. Thus, for me February is the hardest month of the year: Spring is in the air but seems farer away than in January. The air teases me with spring smell and then February gets cold and grey and snowy, again...

But with a bracelet like yours winter is being kept at bay and spring is a lot nearer - and the days are getting longer and the sun is a bit warmer sunny

Gorgeous little Celtic silver. Love how the Troll Tree Lock looks in this context - how appropriate - its buds will soon be bursting into life.
