Lughnasa always seems like the twilight of summer to me. So rather than harvest colors of yellow, orange, and red, I tend to shades of violet, purple, greens, and greys. Spheres are champagne calcite, clear and fused quartz, and rainbow fluorite. The white pillar candle has grasses and leaves embedded in the wax, the purple pillar has a pair of tiny seahorses, shells, and sea oats. The bisque candlestick has painted harvest grapes, the stone candle cups are carved, one in quatrefoil piercing and a scroll carved border under the lip, the other in an owl and tree design. The grasshopper on the incense tray fiddles into the warm night, uncaring that cold winter is coming and he will have nothing stored to eat. A sweetgrass braid circles the stone bowl of oats, and handmade ribbon pansies circle the base of the goddess bowl.
