We are again preparing for our St. Brigid's Day celebrations. The Celtic Saint who lived in our area. She is the symbol of Woman in many religions. In Kildare there are many events taking place to celebrate her life.
Solas Bhride, an order of Brigidine nuns, founded by St. Brigid (who are unusual as they are Catholic and also celebrate the Goddess) hold workshops and events all through the year. A yearly event for us locals is a visit to the holy well a walk around the Cathedral, a visit to the mighty oak, and home for tea and cake. The reed cross will be made tomorrow for pride of place in the home for the year ahead.
Happy La Fheile Bhride (Happy Saint Brigid's Day) everyone.
Elly at My Everyday Things sent me a wonderful Christmas package with beautiful items, an angel a star, a heart, a sachet of Christmas scents (everything so thoughtfully chosen, perfect gifts) and a drawing by her daughter(very special as there were some greetings written in Dutch), and a very sweet card with red and white (so you Elly) images on the front. They arrived all beautifully packaged. ( I was so excited I opened them before taking a photo). Thank you both for your thoughts and kindness it really means a lot to me.
This week another pretty package arrived this time from Marjolijn at Something White. I just about managed to contain myself and take a photo before I opened it up.
Lindt chocolates in a pretty pink tin, a magazine (I am going to look at now with a cup of Earl grey tea), a linen bag, serviettes, soap, body wash and L'occitane products and a beautiful card all tied with care and attention. Thank you my dear friend, I am delighted with your gifts and your kindness.
Marjolijn and Elly you are both very inspiring and creative, I am humbled by your generosity.
