Merry meet to all!
Thank you once again to all of the blessed souls who joined in for last week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge - Magickal Blessings
With our blessings counted and cast, it’s time to share a bit of that magick with the world around us.
The theme for this week’s challenge was offered by the kind @Kasandra and is…

Just a spoonful of magick to something on hand-
will make something wonderous of that which was bland.
Unwanted scraps or beloved jewels,
Magick turns things into great witchy tools!
