Wishcasting Wednesday


So another Hump Day has rolled around and it's back to making sure that I've manifested magic into my daily world by joining in Jamie's Wishcasting Wednesday. I have to admit, I really missed being part of this powerful circle while I was away.

This Wednesday, the prompt asks, "What frivolous treat do you wish for yourself?" And, I thought it might take me a few moments of consideration, because Jamie's picture with the prompt is a killer pair of sparkly pumps. But, I'm not much for shoes. Now, niece Laura? Oh, yeah, so all about the shoes.

She lived with me for about a half a year when she was in college. And, it took hours to move her bags, let me repeat, BAGS of shoes. In my lifetime, I've never had that many shoes. I'm wondering if Livy is going to get the shoe gene?

I'm not much for clothes, or girlie things like purses or accessories. I am all about the jewelry, but Michael surprised me with quite a lovely piece while we were on the cruise, so that is not on my list currently.

So frivolous? I think girls who were raised Catholic don't know how to behave frivolously at least not out loud and not where people can see us! I'm fairly certain the Frivolity Police show up and drag you away...so it's really going to be wishing joined by the collective to get me to stop being jittery and just ask...just wish!

Why does this make me nervous? Can't I want something and manifest it into my life just because I want it? Where's all this guilt coming from? The internal static? It's just an exercise...

Okay, here goes...I wish to have a gorgeous and expensive teak wood bench for my new back garden. A place where I can sit and watch my gardens from a different angle. Commune with the garden sprites that tend the new plants. A new bench made of expensive wood that will withstand the elements and grow to the beautiful gray patina of grand garden furniture. One that will last years. One that looks like it came from an established and stately English garden!

I can see me, book in hand, a pillow, a glass of sweet tea, under the trees lounging about. Or, holding hands with Michael as we watch the evening shadows grow toward dusk. Or, if you come for a visit, you can join me as we talk about this and that and sip something refreshing.

Yeah, that's it. That's my frivolous wish. I wish for a teak wood garden bench. A Teak Wood Garden Bench. A fabulous, sturdy, beautifully crafted, bench. Frivolous it may be, but oh, wouldn't it look divine, just there? Can you see it, too?

So mote it be!

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly aka The Garden Gnome

I think a little "wish dance" is due for you as dancing is one thing I do well and if that bench magically appears in your garden....well then all my hip shaking and shimmying will be worth it !

A divine & frivolous - one of the best combos ever! How delightfully beautiful and inviting. I'm sure we'd all love to join you on your beautiful teak garden bench for a cup of tea, great conversation and some wishing!

hugs,
Jamie

I can easily see this bench, growing old and beautifully grey in the elements.

As Holly wishes, so do I wish for her also.

My own teak wood bench was bought by CDM for our dock at the creek house. It is a place that has given me more than one story of magic and where Spirit spoke to me on a day in October 2000.

It has had a lovely home now here in my own back patio/garden and I enjoy my quiet time there.

They seem to invite Spirit closer, so I wish for you your own garden bench and many Spirit-filled hours together!

The image you painted of your garden made me feel like I was sitting right beside you on the beautiful bench.

May it be.

Teak far surpasses guilt, Baby! As Holly wishes for herself, so I wish for her also ... for her and cuz I want to sit there with her when I come visit.

I like wishcasting wednesday (now why does that spelling look wrong?) A teak garden bench sounds very...welcoming, sturdy, "chique".
I wish I had more time today for this but I have a ton of work to do.

KnittingJourneyman said...

I can so see you and Micheal, the birds, the bees, the garden, the patina developing, all so clearly in my mind's eye--such an enchanting wish....
surely the time is Now for this wish to come true...

As Holly wishes for herself, I so wish for her as well, with all my heart....

As Holly wishes for her teak bench, so I wish for her also!

I love the teak bench image. It sounds so peaceful. I can so relate to the guilt and fear of wishing for frivolous things. I too was raised Catholic and the guilt comes with the territory. I look forward to taking in nature, enjoying smoothies and practicing Reiki on your teak bench!

This is not at all frivolous, and I can imagine your enchanted summer evenings fading beautifully as you take it all in.
