On the Twelfth Day of Hallowe'en...

I spent a good portion of my day cleaning my apartment in preparation of my annual Autumn cleansing. With the approach of Samhain, this has always been the perfect time for renewal, protection and banishing spells around the home. First thing I like to do before any sort of spellwork is physically clean my space from top to bottom, alleviating any clutter or dirty nooks and crannies where negativity can linger and hide out. Tomorrow, once I've finished my deep cleaning, I'll get to the witchy work of shooing away the negativity that's collected in here, cleansing my home and renewing protection spells.

I've got my four thieves vinegar a-brewing and I'll share more about how I go about the magical side of my cleaning ritual tomorrow after I've finished. To relax after all of my scrubbing and tossing out of things today however, I did some light decorating around the living room that I thought I'd share.

This Lolly is all Mine!

Those two fellows came to live with us after we picked them up in New Jersey at a consignment shop for the unbelievable price of $3 each! And they aren't small or chintzy either.
