A continuation on the article ‘5 inspiring fantasy Etsy shops’. There are still many inspiring Etsy shops within the Fantasy genre. That's why I made a new list with 5 new Fantasy Etsy shops. Every shop has a link to their Etsy store.
The Rowan tree is a real witches tree. The Rowan tree has long been known for being a magickal tree. It’s has an important role in many mythology and folklore stories.
The Rowan tree is a great protector, it protects against bad luck & evil. It has been used for many years to make walking sticks and magician's staves, as well as Druid staffs and wands. Even today is is still one of the most sought after woods for wands and amulets. It is believed to help psychic abilities and connections. If you look at the berries when you remove them from the stick you will notice the pentacle symbol where they were attached.
Technically we don’t have a Rowan tree in our garden, but our neighbours do. It’s in their front yard and most branches overlap to our side. I don’t mind at all, I think it’s a wonderful tree. It’s not a very big one, but it is absolutely a pretty one. It’s also very handy because I have Rowan berries and leaves within reach.
No matter if you have a creative job or an office job, everyone needs time for themselves. Lots of creative people I know, are also nature lovers. The nature is a perfect place to find some piece and quite. Empty and order the thoughts in your head to make room for creative new ideas. I love finding my inner self in nature. And when I am walking through nature anyway, I can make some pics :D. Nature is a huge inspiration source for all my work, so enough inspiration to find.
