The evening of Sct.Hans where all the witches flyes to Blogsbjerg

This my witch flying peacefull, in my garden today,was realy supposed to be
eighter burned or have been flying to Blogsbjerg
on the night of 23/6  Sct.Hans evening,-lol

But she looks very happy to still be here.

and not ending her dayes on this fire.!!
Every year this night, fires are made in Denmark  all over,
to symbolize the witch burning in the middle age, where every wice woman,being able to
make "witchcraft" was burned if catched.
A very terribly ,terribly, law.

Tomorrow my two sweet grandchildren comes to visit with us, for the next
8 dayes.

Playing around here, watching the bies collecting honey in all the beautifull flowers

or watching the swaans on the East Sea,
I`m sure we will have a very great and happy time together, and I can`t wait
to hug them tomorrow, when arriwing.

But that also means, not very much blogging,
so I hope you will wait for comments from me ,on your blogs ,till the two
dears, are back home again.
I will miss you, but sooo enjoy the kids,
so till then, everyone have a wonderfull week, -take care, and enjoy
your dayes.
---------------Extra note:  I have got the most wonderfull gifts on my birthday,from friends and blogging
friends, ------They will all be photographed ,for you to see,
when I`m back again,after following the two "babyes" home.

Love and hugs, to all, and see you soon.

Dearest Dorthe,
I hope you had a wonderful birthday. Yes that was a terrible law with the burning of witches. So many lost their lives.
Have a wonderful time with the grandchildren, some of my favorite memories are when I visited with my Grandmother. We will miss your posts and will catch up soon.

Dorthe, grandchildren are the most precious gift, you enjoy them to the full and spend every minute you can with them!

Your witch looks very mischievous, that twinkle in her eye promises lots of naughtiness! She is adorable.

Your witch is fabulous, sweet Dorthe! She looks like she is up to something and I wonder what that might be. I love her outfit and her wonderful hair. The wart on her nose is a great detail too!
Enjoy the time with your grandchildren, dear and have a lot of fun!
Lots of hugs and kys,

your witch is fantastic! I just love her face - so detailed and perfect. I signed up for KC's class and am super excited. Thank you for sharing that info.
Enjoy the time with your grandchildren! :)

Hopemore Studio said...

Such an intriguing celebration of sorts. In the US it seems we try so hard to forget the witch trials and such. Perhaps the night of burnings is a way to remember what happened, even if so long ago, and to remind ourselves of better paths to follow.

I look forward to hearing about all the grand times with the grandchildren.
