Moments: Finding Rhythm

I can't complain about 2015 thus far. It has felt pretty surreal, productive, and slow and steady all at once. The other weekend we got a rug and an ottoman for our TV area, and it finally feels like we are finding a rhythm in our home. And of course the boys love the new rug and ottoman too. That is always a plus. I soon want to show you glimpses into our space. We live in a studio so it has been challenging to make it meet all our needs, and think it does for the most part now. 

And yes I live in Southern California, so it is just starting to look like fall! The good thing about living here is that we can have a garden basically all year round. We have a small little side yard and we are excited to plan a little garden more than we did last summer. I want lots more succulents, and herbs, and I want to finish my little meditation space. The last picture is my donkey tail. It was sitting too close to the birdfeeders and the birds were picking and eating it! So I moved it and it has been recovering very well! I will be transplanting it to another pot very soon.

I never really knew how comforting having a home of your own could really be. It has become my sanctuary and my place to ground myself. And though I know Jimmy and I can drive each other crazy sometimes in such small quarters, our place is full of love. And that's what counts.

Nest: Vanity Pinspiration

Recently I created a jewelry wall in the open closet in my bathroom. It looks like the sliding doors had been taken off leaving only the closet rack. Currently I have a small dresser in there where I keep my personal crystal collection, candles, incense, and other altar trinkets. Then I thought how cool would it be to put another little table and create a vanity area? So that will be my next project! Maybe I will drape curtains, add more shelving, and put my personal Goddess altar in this space. I am so excited to see how it unfolds! For now I have been pinning away inspirations! These are all off my Pinterest - so hopefully they are linked to their rightful sources!

A part of me wants to live like this...

And then a part of me wants this... The daily struggle....

Settling In

Just wanted to say hi and that we are all moved in! I am enjoying the process of nesting and cleaning and purging. My spirit needs this right now. I am allowing myself to slow down and enjoy the newness.

I won't officially have internet until Sunday, so I am taking a little break from the online world until then. By then I will feel more grounded. 

Thank you all for your patience with orders, shipments, and healing sessions while I get settled in! I won't be able to answer any emails so if you can't find what you are looking for in the FAQ please email raina.moondaughter@gmail.com!

And next Monday will be the last day to sign up for the CMP until I have it up and running again! Wow! What a journey! It has been a year already! You can sign up here and browse over the FAQ for more information.

To new beginnings!

xoxo

Nest: Terrarium Inspiration

I am not much of a 'thrifter' as I have said before, but I recently found a really funky mason jar lamp! And it was button themed! It came with a mix of plastic buttons and a button themed lampshade! Really funky. And I will show the lamp soon, I promise.

But when I saw this lamp, I automatically thought TERRARIUM! So I will be up-cycling this lamp to become a terrarium lamp! I am really excited! I won't be putting live plants in it, but I am excited to create different themed terrariums inside of the jar. 

Here are some inspirations I found on pinterest (click on the images to zoom in and the source). Not all are mason jars, but so beautiful:  

I will show you my final creation when I create it. I do need a small and cute lampshade, even a DIY. Any ideas would be wonderful!

Lunar Blessings,
