bohemian wall hanging
Sirianna is inspired by the sea, and by the mermaid. ~ Laura, www.rootsandfeathers.com
So, the more the merrier, right? To help spread the word about this new transition and private pre-launch party, I'm holding a gorgeous giveaway! This captivating bohemian wall hanging is made by Laura Mazurek of Roots and Feathers and oh my gosh, makes my soul swoon. Laura writes,
Sirianna is inspired by the sea, and by the mermaid. She is made from vintage green velvet, recycled leather, long golden tassels, a feather, a huge sea spike, deerskin, hemp twine, white driftwood, seashell, and a hint of sequins that remind me of a mermaid's tail. She completely embodies the ocean. Driftwood is 11" wide. From driftwood to bottom of sea urchin is 13." 
I am blessed to own several works of art by Laura and they are all so magical. It's a holy-hush honor to offer this piece for you!

deep honor system

In order to qualify, each entry must be verifiable and I need you to keep track of your moons with each comment. For example, if you currently have 5 moons and you share on twitter earning you an extra moon, in that comment please state total: 6 moons, or something equivalent so that you keep a tally as you go and your last comment reflects the highest number. I will monitor this but greatly appreciate your help! :-)

let's wrap up
  • Keep track of your moons.
  • Don't feel intimidated if you are limited on ways you can share. I believe that whoever wins, it's meant to be. So please join however you can. <3
  • Giveaway ends at 5 pm CST on Friday, May 10th.
  • Winner must be willing to disclose their name and mailing address. How else can I ship it to you, love?
  • I will edit this posting to announce a winner and will contact the winner by email. If your email address is not in your profile, visible, or easily accessible, please share it in a comment or email me. If I am unable to confirm contact within 24 hours of announcing winner, I will select another winner.
  • If I've done my math, (admittedly dubious!) the maximum moons available are 33 43 (I added tumblr and pinterest!). If there's a tie, I will draw names. Depending on total number of entries (i.e., if there are tons of ties and I'm handwriting lots of lovely names (so much sweeter than random.org I've learned) and verifying moons), winner will be announced sometime during the weekend.
  • I cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage during shipping. Cannot guarantee arrival date. I will mail via USPS with delivery tracking for the continental United States only. Willing to ship outside the lower 48 and internationally but cannot be responsible for condition of arrival. 
now, about that party ...

For the record, here I am purring over organic, homemade Lavender Caramel made by Katelyn Demidow of Gypsy Moth Sol. You know the extra giveaways I mentioned for my private party? Among them all I'm sharing some delectable treats from Katelyn's shop and when she shipped them to me she included this succulent indulgence and OH.MY.HEART. I texted her: "I'm totally sitting in my car eating your caramel straight from the jar right now." And a few minutes later I tagged her on Instagram and ordered her to marry me. So there you go, the story behind the story. There is no caramel left to giveaway, alas! However, you can order some. :-)

unveiling

The lovely lavender-caramel-creator, apothecary goddess, and earth mama Katelyn is one of the artists I'll feature during my private pre-launch party. I'm so excited ~ can you tell? I've needed a new space reflective of the new soul-space I'm floating in these days and life has unfolded for me in surprising and humbling and breathtaking ways. Truly magical. I'm so honored to share this with you and can't wait to reveal more and more over the next few weeks. This new sacred space is ME. And ~ soulsigh ~ I have so much to give you. So much to share with you. If you're not a current subscriber, please join me?

Note: save the date! My virtual soiree is one day only, Tuesday, May 14th. I know ... a Tuesday? It's simply the right time. My schedule is full and luscious with heart-soaked projects. And the moon is waxing then, meaning growth and newness and fertility. My full website launches May 15th.

Thank you for journeying with me. <3
_____
 *I reserve the right to reschedule if, due to unforeseen events, I am unable to launch on time.
**Current and new subscribers: please note that the email address for my mailing list will change just prior to my site launch. I will send a private invitation from my new account with a password for my virtual soiree. Must be an email subscriber to receive.

  1. I am so excited for your new space. Your blog has been a source of inspiration and soul comfort to me since I found it last summer. I think you are such a beautiful person.

    And I love that wall hanging, all of Laura's stuff is so lovely! I would hang that in my study/altar room, probably right above my altar so that it can become a part of my sacred, magickal space. I think it would make the perfect addition.

    1 moon!

  8. That is so beautiful. And it would be prefect hanging in my art space next to all of the other beautiful love I have there... Looking so forward to your new soul-space.

  9. Oh, she's so lovely! I know I probably won't win her, however, I will honor her. I would hang her in the corner of my room near my colorful bookshelf, where the sun sets and shines on the wall every evening.

    I should make my own hanging with a shell, no matter what happens. I am sure I could. :)

    This is all so exciting ... your soul is positively exuding all these fragrant juices ... can't wait to see what it's been making.

  10. Oh. I'm in love. I love all of Laura's creations but this one really sings to me. I grew up by the beach and the shell on it is my favorite that I've collected over the years. I would hang this above my creative space where I make all of my clothes. Then I would hang it in our gypsy bus that we're building to live in <3 LOVE. Looking forward to your new space.

  14. Oh this piece is stunning!! I would hang it up above my altar, between Buddha, love letters and crystals. Although I don't really follow the path of shamanism, the roots always seem to call me back... with a text, a blog, a piece of art like this one, sticks and stones... ahhh, love it. Thanks for this opportunity! :)

  31. If I were to win this I would put it up in a special corner of my bedroom. I won't get into to much detail because it is kind of personal but lets just say when I took care of my mom there was a special space she enjoyed looking at from my bed. It would go right there and I would think of her.

I've got a sort of wall altar going on there now, with rocks and driftwood wired together and hung in cairn-like stacks (all from places I've been, lived, or visited), and this would be a great focus piece to bring everything together and, well, focus on as a center point. It's just gorgeous. (6 moons total)
