The Cobbled Together Bathroom Progress, Elegant Economy And A Bit Of Advice For Women's Mental Health

"I cannot rest; I must draw, however poor the result, and when I have a bad time come over me, it is a stronger desire than ever. For quiet, solitary and observant children create their own world and live in it, nourishing their imaginations on the material at hand.”~Beatrix Potter

Hello, my dear mermaid hearts, 
As of late, I’m working around the clock to keep me and my betrothed out of the Victorian workhouse.

Most recently, I've learned a bit more about myself, and I must confess that as I have stayed sat in one attitude, I am most proud and deserve the word. I realised how much I've grown and progressed in the state of affairs when it pertains to cutting things off at the crosswalk, for as much as many may not like it, I am quite severe on my own sex, and my timing has become matchless.

Women can be quite dodgy (because of deep insecurities and perpetuated jealousy), and whereas I'm not here polishing a halo, I am forthright in my ethics as well as my ability to summon things as I see them. Life is entirely too precious to waste our time, allowing other women to take us apart like clocks. If you feel a pull that someone is gossiping or talking backwards nonsense, let them go, my darlings. Absolutely, let them go about their lives and make haste when performing such matters. There is no need to take vengeful action; allow karma to take its course at its perfect timing; this way, we do not heap like coal reverse karmic debt upon our own heads. I am contemplating making a video for YouTube all about the details of how karmic universal law works. I've yet to see anyone know it as well as I do, much less explain it properly and accurately. And while I am at it, I am planning a video all about forgiveness and how Neville Goddard squares this extremely controversial subject up in such a perfect way that there'll be no need ever to have it explained again. Yet, I most undoubtedly will speak about it because repetition (at nausea) is the best way to assist someone in understanding a subject. Most folks do not change unless one thing occurs, and that is to understand something. People fear what they do not comprehend. It's okay, my darlings; I'll die on the hill, or the sword, or any other accoutrement you'd like to toss my way as sharing my views on the points of life is my forte; no one is better than I rest assured.

Yes, I speak with authority and experience on the matter. I've also exercised (most recently) my psychic abilities in receiving downloads to understand it from a universal (Collective Consciousness) perspective. The knowledge will assist in my helping women feel proud and confident.

This week, I uploaded several videos on ye olde YouTube in reference to which I am speaking. I’m a writer; therefore, my employment is to make notions convincing as well as be as truthful and complete of transparency as i possibly can, whilst also refraining from intimate exposure as i am consciously aware there are some dodgy folks in our realm too.

My painting and new little storybooks are swimming along nicely, and my folk's little bathroom is taking shape rather superbly, too.
These are the progress images. Much has changed even from now. However, I wanted you to see what ole' Razz has been getting up to as of late.  

This window is framed outside of the original. I am on a budget for my parent's cottage bath; therefore, rather than install a new window, I opted for a frame, and I will place stained glass and candles that are battery-lit behind the window. 

When I've accomplished a few more of the particulars, i will share images and links in case you are interested in the Victorian sources. For now, though, here are a few progress images. 

Have I told you most recently how much i love writing, painting, farming and slow living? I've found my house of belonging. I suppose the reason for sharing my appreciation for the excellent life is rather a vital notion to testify of, for we know life can be challenging sometimes. Therefore, it is essential to be grateful and show forth that to the universal spirit, which will give us a return tenfold on our gratitude. I informed Jeffrey Shawn yesterday that’s why I fall into an olde-fashioned, cottage core slow living way of life. I find romanticising my life and playing house in a cosy Victorian fairytale cottage such an escape. I am rather fond of isolation, and it indeed has valuable benefits. To be alone is quite normal, an attribute for a Pisces Sun, Cancer moon and Sagittarius rising. However, Pisces also needs change. In fact, we thrive on change. Oftentimes, I've heard folks complain that Pisces are unmanageable because we are onto many different paths seemingly all at once. I want to dispel this myth; we are indeed flowing in opposite directions; however, that makes for a very unpredictable multi, multi-faceted mermaid. She's quite unpredictable as she possesses all of the signs of the zodiac rolled into one. If you have a Pisces in your life, know full well we are magnificent beings. We have too long received opinions about ourselves that i consider backwards nonsense. Well, note that those olde beliefs went out with the babies' bathwater long ago. 

I must confess, having a life that is slow living and focused on a timey life comes very naturally to me. Jeffrey Shawn said once that i honestly had to have been born in another time, reincarnated many times. I agree with him. I've always known that about myself.  In my previous marriage, i would most often have a difficult go of things because my deepest innate desire (even from childhood) was to live on a little farm with chickens, bunnies, and sheep, walk, garden, write novels, self-help and children’s storybooks, living a lifestyle like Tasha Tudor, painting and writing, modelling the tone of Beatrix Potter. I am living that little dream. For many years, I was told by others not to “big myself up” about achieving and manifesting my demonstrated goals, and I now find that quite displeasing. Let us share with others the knowledge that they, too, can also achieve their dreams as well. If we remain quiet all our lives, we will not be an example to other beautiful women that dreams do indeed come to fruition.

"We cannot stay home all our lives; we must present ourselves to the world, and we must look upon it as an adventure. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit world of childhood?"~Beatrix Potter

I have closed down (for the interim) my Patreon; however, I have placed all of those videos onto my YouTube channel for you to enjoy for free. Here is the link. I would ask that if you feel any resonance with my content either here on ye olde blog or my YouTube channel, would you please subscribe?

How To Sew A Tasha Tudor Apron, And How To Wear A Tasha Tudor Scarf

Hello, my dear mermaid hearts, 

I am working on a video for making a Tasha Tudor apron and a bonnet (which I wear daily around my farm). I know Tasha wore a scarf, so I'll show you exactly how to create a darling updo, just like Tasha. I'll also have several of the scarfs with the exact prints she donned (the same company Tasha bought from), which was her signature look. I will have a selected few available for purchase; therefore, look boldly to that, my darlings.
I will also be diving deep into one's voyage of how to have the self-confidence to embody the life Tasha (and myself) dress and live. A little hint: it's not merely putting on the clothes for a day of cosplay photos for Instagram. It is an absolute mindset that requires many things to become the woman you wish to be; nonetheless, don't fret, my darlings; I am here to guide you on your pilgrimage. The great focus I will concentrate on is embarking on the style of Tasha's (and my) clothing and wearing them daily. 

It's a place where women feel safe sharing and building relationships with one another whilst also having like-minded ambitions. I am incredibly proud of our Stillwater- A Petticoat Society because you don't have to be any religion, and there is a placidness for feeling we are all in this thing called life together, for we are friends. Thank you for supporting my work. I am very appreciative. I love you each very, very much!
Be sure to collect my books on Amazon.

A mischievous and disobedient young Mermaid, Scarlette Rose, is chased about the water garden of the antagonist, Sir Mr Barbaric. Finally, she escapes and returns home to her mother, who puts her to bed after dosing her with tea. It is a tale that encourages following one's heart, seeking joy and trust in ourselves. Hence, if we believe in our power, we will always find our way home {true north}. It is also a tale of sowing and reaping and is derivative of The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter.

Sawyer and Johnny Lamb are sent away on a spirited adventure where they become lost on the way to town. The butcher takes Sawyer Lamb in, who has already stolen another lamb (Briar Rose), and the butcher's intentions are less altruistic than the lambs expect, and things go off course.

Have a lovely day, my friends.

Ewe Have My Heart

Good day dear mermaid hearts, 

I spoke often and jotted down the desire to have a little flock outside my cottage garden window, and now we're in the process of its manifestation. Wait, I've already shared that news, haven't I?
Here's another charming picture of a flock of sheep. Do you like how I have everything in a sepia tone? If one adores the olde, timey ways, of course, you change the filter to a sepia or black and white. Actually, that is my brilliant idea to have all of your coloured photos switched into black and white or sepia and then hang them back up. I've been doing this for a little over 30 plus years. (Remember when we’d have to send away our film to have it developed and then have a drug store change the colour for you? Yes, that long ago, my fruits.) Since my early childhood and throughout my life, I've always been ahead of my time with most things; such as I've been saying there will come a time when olde timey clothes will come back into fashion (hence the cottage core phenomenon), women will begin homeschooling their children and learning homesteading skills, styling a home a particular way etc.) It always makes things look like the Victorian era in your little abode, and we all know I am a sucker for the Victorian-era English cottage charm. If it sounds posh and arrogant that I stake claims that I'm ahead of my time, I am no longer in the business of dimming my light to make others comfortable. That there ole’ gal died a long time ago. I've spent too many years of my life making allowances simply for others to disrespect me brazenly, and that is no longer a tolerable favour. 
Okay, my dear mermaid hearts, where was I? 

I am one for endlessly getting sidetracked.

Oh yes, I was banging on about manifestation and how we dim
our dreams. 

Often, The truth is we will place barriers for ourselves, immediately creating resistance where there needs to be none. How often than not have you indeed sent off an inner desire, throwing caution to the wind but then directly back peddling your passions with abandonment because the dream isn't practical? I speak of this because I know how notorious I was for doing this to myself as if I wasn't worthy of having what I wanted. Bestowed upon us as women is a learned behaviour that we aren't worthy of having what we want. Perhaps a blessing each of us could clutch onto is the remembrance of our most authentic passions. It's rather enlightening to uncover that often what a woman calls the search for belonging isn't what she thought at all; it arises to be her repressed desires she loved as a young person that imprinted on her heart, made her feel alive, joyful and an undeniable bliss for life. 

An artist and a writer takes time to conquer. There's an art in waiting, and as of yet, I've not had the pleasure of mastering it, but I am getting there. Patience requires time and knowledge, which makes perfect sense; look at a gardener understanding the cycles of seasons. 

"He'd talk, and I'd lose sight of the truth." ~ Elizabeth, Deceit and Dissension  
I've got a million and one matters on the ole' boiler at the moment, one being I am deep into research and plot for my 19th-century British romantic novel Deceit and Dissension. 

You can right jolly bet I am loving every aspect of it. This book is pure perfection. I use my imagination and think of what actors and actresses I'd like to play my characters if the book became a film. It's indeed perfect enough. 

I have also been doing a bit of gardening. I cooked several fresh garden greens, turnips, and collards for the new year. I also have some onions too. The rabbits loved the greens; they devoured them straight away. 

I've also been doing a bit of organising and proper cleaning of the cottage. I am making more plans than ever. You know me, I've got a million ideas and want to accomplish them all. What fun to have exciting little projects. One project is I took up all the bricks in front of the cottage doors, and I will bring in flagstone and a fun little Irish moss-type ground covering to grow between the stones. I've also become aware by little chitchatting birds that I may have to go with another clever notion. I've read up on Irish Moss in Florida (zone 9), and it struggles to survive. We shall see, though; perhaps I manifest it thrives where I plant it. Nothing is beyond me manifesting. I'll tell you that, my friend. There's an illustration I painted for you of the path. Unfortunately, I don't have a picturesque real-time image (to show you) yet, but we shall get there, my darlings. All things in due time. Though the painting is quite charming, don't you think?
The tea cups and teapots are officially on their way from England (Staffordshire). Thank goodness, perhaps they'll be here in time for our first 2024 small gathering of The Petticoat Society (aka The Carter Settlement). I'll explain that bit of news in the next post. Please sign up on my email pop-up list, and you'll get notifications. I rarely (and I mean rarely, if ever send email newsletters, or you can constantly check here on the blog) about announcements of when and where I will be and what events I'm at. I'm more than happy to post about particular events here on ye olde blog, so check back occasionally to see what sort of mischief I've got up to, if you, please. Teehee.

Have a wonderful weekend and toddle-pip!
