Vintage Witch Boots

Witch Boots, VIntage Shoes from Zwzzy on Etsy size 6.5

These boots from Zwzzy are size 6.5. Hello, I love you. Why can’t you be my size?

I’m not sure what anyone says but these could be a great witch boots to adorn your shoe collection. I’m not so sure I’d wear these every day, as I think they would transform my feet into something unrecognizable, worse than a pile of rubbish. Not to mention us “witch folk” must stay incognito, right? So today you should put away your broom and check out these great finds from Etsy.   I’m thinking these vintage witch boots could be for special occasion only, or as that Halloween Costume (when you are really not in costume). I do hear that clicking them together all the time makes for great fun, but sorry, no trip to Oz.

What are the Characteristics of a Witch Boot?

So just what is deemed worthy? Small heeled pointed toe boots that say “Don’t mess with me or I’ll turn you into a newt” that’s what. Suffice to say most of the authentic Victorian era shoes resemble what appear to be witch boots, but were worn with daintier dress toting upper class genre, with parasols, certainly not the witch at the end of Eastwick boulevard . The problem, most sizes are small, so teeny in fact, that you would have to put your foot in a press for weeks to make them fit.

Many shoes were custom tailored back then or made for certain individuals of upper society aka “high society” by a shoemaker, so good luck finding proper sizes. Many times you will find stock codes in the inseam but no actual sizing.

Madonna meets Stevie Nicks meets Cowgirl: Find these at RoslynVTGTradingCo on Etsy

A small resurface in the 80’s because of what was her name , oh yeah, Stevie Nicks – (I know her name) means you should be able to find wider size and slightly lower priced This is the time shoes were starting to be made in China but seemed to hold up a bit better.  Let’s not forget the short squatties that came out in teh Madonna craze. Yeah, I’m old enough to remember that. Today, adding something like this to your collection is well worth it. They  are getting harder to find in the proper sizes.

Flora Goddess Spell – New Beginnings

Flora Italian Goddess Witch Spell

Witch Spell Requires Help from Goddess Flora

This spell is original to my family, and I thought I’d share it today. First you should know the spell is chanted to Flora, she was a goddess of flowers and springtime (and some say fertility) in Roman Mythology.  The celebration honors her, for the return of flowers to the earth in springtime, from the long cold winter.

From my family to yours: The Flora Goddess Spell 

This spell calls on Flora to help you with your New Beginnings.

We find this good for helping your desires as it pertains to New Beginnings, for instance, you lost your job and you are trying to welcome a new beginning (or job) into your life. You lost your lover and are trying to start anew. These sort of circumstance.  The spell will not work for specific requests, as the power of Flora is to use what she thinks is best. For instance, if you ask to win the lottery, you could not ask for that. You could however have in your mind new financial beginnings if you are having issues. The spell works best when greed is not used, but practical things that the Goddess will take pity on you for. Remember, in her time, wealth was not monetary, so some do not understand how she answers. If you believe in her however, she will answer.

The spell is most powerful April 28-May 3rd when others are calling her name; legend says at this time, she seems to be listening.

Depending on the climate you are in, this spell may prove difficult, as sometimes on the East Coast the long hard winters may prove uneasy to collect the necessary components for the dates suggested.

You will need:

To collect one petal from twelve different wild flowers in various places. You must leave the original flowers in tact, but steal a petal from each. For instance, a wild daisy, just pluck one petal.  A dandelion, one petal, so on and so forth. Purple flowers are the strongest in power, they say, but this will prove hard to collect twelve different ones.

The flower petals must be collected within the same day, and set in a cup of fresh stream water.

This spell requires you to wait until the moonlight appears, or if the moonlight does not, the stars will suffice.

You must now see your vision in your head of what you need. For instance, you need a new beginning in your love life.  Now, chant the following holding the cup above your head and into the moonlight, yet when it is time you will need to expose your left breast, so some prefer to do this semi nude.  You must chant the following total of three times, getting louder each time:

Flora,  Goddess! Skin so White!

Please hear me this very night

Guide me into beginnings of new

For this is your specialty I call upon you

From thy bounty of flowers I offer thee

Twelve random petals four times three

The beauty in each I promise true

I shall respect nature and always, you.

REPEAT louder.

REPEAT even louder, and now slowly  pouring the cup with flowers down your bare left breast. * Let them fall to the ground from your breast naturally, as your breast dries.

———————————————kindly dispose of the cup in the proper manner.

*Flora is associated with fertility, so pouring down your left breast equates to nurturing the growth of flowers and awakens the height of sensitivity inside both you and the Goddess.

The spell is strengthened if you have a coven of three others and yourself, all with their own found cups and their own wishes, chanting together and return to the place you found the flowers.  If you do this, you must turn to the witch on your right when it is time to pour, and one at a time pour on the exposed left breast of your sisters or brothers until everyone has taken turns pouring, then hold hands and your spell is sealed.

Each summer, around the same time, don’t forget to thank Flora if she has granted the wish you seek.  Remember, she will grant your wish in how she sees fit.

Embued Bloodstone Rock Chalice Nectar and The Nine Trees

I actually had this spell cast on me by a 91 year old witch in a time of utter stress in my life. I cannot find anything more about it, except, that it’s amazing she picked it for me since the trees and I go way back. If you know anything about this spell, please leave a comment.

Chalice Nectar and The Nine Trees

Name: Chalice Nectar

Objective: Healing, Visionary, Order, Anti-aging

Class: Olde Craft

Rock Imbued to “replenishes, empowers and elevates” the Owner. Halt damage to the body, mind and spirit, as well as granting higher access and visionary experiences”.

Not only will the embued stone “remove harmful and damaging energies from one’s field, it will also prevent harmful energies from re-entering one’s field”. This will assist the bearer in gaining enhanced healing abilities as the body, mind and spirit are strengthened by removing the “distracting interference” of damaging energies. The owner will see the advanced improvement of one’s appearance and feelings of well being as the effects of aging are “slowed down”. She also added that “aches and pain have been known to suddenly cease” as a result of this piece!

Noted that one will soon experience “higher access” to information from the astral plane and…

Witches Wiccans Make the News in Anchorage

Witchin’ a  Thank you to the Anchorage Daily News

Kudos to Victoria Barber who put a story in the newspaper of a real live “Witches Ball” taking place in Anchorage, Alaska. Not only did she interview the witches in charge but put a link to the ticket sales page.

I read four take-aways from the article that I am sure the public is going to need to know.

1. Witches are scared to come out of their broom closets to their bosses, family or friends.

Sadly I never understood this. Witches, you need to get on your merry broomstick and go talk to a gay guy who has come out and ask him how to do it.

2.  In the official meetup group 120 members strong, only 50 are active.

This just goes to show that over half the witches are hiding!

3. Thank you for the clarification “All Wiccans are witches but not all witches are Wiccans,” which is often so misunderstood.

If I had a dollar for every time I had to repeat this I’d be a rich old witch.

4.  The witch says to Barber, “Wiccans aren’t out to convert anyone, or even talk about their beliefs.”

Um, hello, they are not the Jehovah Witnesses. They don’t go door to door, and believe it or not, they won’t turn you into a rat.

Blue Hair Wigs and Extensions

Blue Hair Wig Cloud9Jewels Etsy Shop

Blue Wig is $75 on Etsy shop Cloud 9 Jewels

Well, I’d say that as a witch you are already daring to be different, so why not have hair that sets you apart from others? This post will show you the best blue hair, synthetic blue hair wigs and instant hair extensions a girl (or witch) can find!  Before dying your hair blue for real, why not try blue on for size to make sure it fits?

The magic of it all is they are easy to take care of, and you can shop right from the comfort of your own favorite chair.  Above, we have beautiful cool blue locks, which Cloud9Jewels on Etsy refers to as “mermaid hair.” You can wash this wig with regular synthetic wig shampoo and style it with a hot iron. This one is $75, and so we love it!  Below, for $116 ExandOh has a lovely blonde and blue mixed wig!  That is their Cyber Monday price!

Blue Hair on Etsy ExandOh  $116 Cyber Monday Sale

Blonde and Blue Wig so lovely, $116 on Etsy at Ex and Oh

Of course there’s always an element with changing your hair color that you could change your overall look from regular chick to burlesque sex kitten, add curls or dreads and if you are in that kind of mood these clip in black and blue curls are a great price at HeadRazor on Etsy.  They say, “To use simply Clip over a ponytail or bun, Our Hair falls can be worn by both Women & Men.” You get two of these ‘hair falls” in blue and black for $50.

Hair falls by HeadRazor, 2 for only $50 on Etsy

Most good synthetic hair wigs will run you average of $50-$100 on Etsy from US stores.  I am all about supporting local US businesses, but if you are on a limited budget and want to experiment with many different looks in hopes of eventually dying your hair that color, you can check out ore LincoFashionWigs from China does offer low end pricing on their wigs and has various hues of blue.  Though I am not quite certain they are as good of quality as the ones you can find elsewhere, their average wig price is around $17 with a $3 US shipping cost. For twenty bucks, it’s a great way to try out some fake hair to see before you actually dye your hair the color.

Blue Hair from Etsy

Blue Hair from Etsy Shop Linco Fashion Wigs, this is only $16.99

 Here are some selecctions. Above, we have  and below, dark blue halloween wig is 26 1/2 inches , both for only $16.99. If you want to try a mixed color wig, they range about $20-$30 still a fraction of what US sellers are asking.

Now if you’ve done all that and are ready to take the next step , good luck finding a salon to dye your hair blue. You will have to find the hippest, trendiest place around and if you are going two colors expect to pay upwards of $300 in fashion salons.  The local CVS or Walgreens will sell dark blue hair dye, usually. Or, you could buy semi permanent coloring which allows you to have fun and change up your color often. For this we recommend checking out the colors at Lunar Tides Hair on etsy.  They have tons of blue hues, and of course, if you ask for our recommendation it would be none other than the color, “Sea Witch.”
