This wand is for those that work in blues, pinks and greens, Springtime and early Summer, moving Water, Fairies and Sun and the Maiden Moon.

This beautiful vintage piece comes to us from Pascalene’s ETSY site whose shop has many nice vintage and collectable items. The write up on this wonderful piece:
Offered for sale is an unusual walking stick.
The walking stick is made of a large piece of natural shaped tree branch.
Covering the branch is a genuine snake skin. I have been told that this snake skin came from the southwestern United States, but I am not a herpetologist able to verify t
he snakes’ species.
The top of the walking stick features the snakes entire head and black eyes.
The bottom of the walking stick shows some minor wear from touching the ground and was covered with a black rubber tape to avoid any further damage.
Otherwise the snake skin and walking stick are in really nice condition.
The walking stick measures approximately 5 6’ Inches long.
It is very kindly offered at $110.00
These beautiful and useful root sticks come to us by way of Liorah Liucu of ArtisanWitchcrafts.
Roots in general, make great grounding tools. And as Liorah writes specifically about the licorice root:
Chewing on a LICORICE ROOT STICK is said to induce passion, attract love and ensure fidelity. Often added to love spells, lust sachets, mojo charm bags and lust mixtures, LICORICE ROOT STICKS make useful magic- enhancing wands as well. Some people chew on LICORICE ROOT STICKS to help them quit smoking.
As a wand these are shorter than I like, however I am willing to stretch and be a bit flexible. I am looking forward to using these both as a wand and perhaps a magickal stirring spoon. If you have used one yourself I would love to hear from you.
These come in 7″ to 8″ and for $1.95 per wand/stick the price is right.
If you want any please hurry as I will also be buying some!

“Hermione” By CutomWoodChuck is this weeks choice for my wand-at-the-ready! Beautifully crafted from Rosewoods both Santos Rosewood and East Indian Rosewood, a special combination for a special Witch, Druid or Collector.
A variation of Hermione’s original wand from the Philosopher’s Stone and Chamber of Secrets film.
Wood: Santos Rosewood & East Indian Rosewood
Diameter: 1 1/8″
Weight: 2.2 oz
Crafted: November 8, 2012
Magical qualities of wood used in making wand:
Wood Origin: Brazil, Bolivia
Gender Association: Feminine
Planetary Association: Mars, Moon, Venus
Elemental Association: Spirit, Fire
Other magical properties:
This wood’s energy is primarily feminine, and focused on spiritual, intuitive health and beauty. Bolivian Rosewood is motherly, spiritual, and nourishing. It lends a boost to intuitive thought and feeling, and is thus excellent in divination and scrying. A healing wood, rosewood can be used in all healing rituals but is especially effective in spiritual healing. In matters dealing with beauty, rosewood can be very effective. Carried or worn as a charm, this wood will enhance female beauty and feminine grace. It would be good for love spells as well, but only those conducted with maturity and wisdom. Frivolous energies will not be enhanced by this wood.
Rosewood (East Indian):
Wood Origin: India
Gender Association: Feminine
Planetary Association: Moon, Venus, Saturn
Elemental Association: Fire, Earth, Some Water
Other magical properties:
East Indian Rosewood has a very magical energy, but that of dark magic, mystery. Darkness is not a negative thing, but it is that which is not usually focused upon, the hidden things in life that escape the notice of most people. This wood will help a person work with these energies. For this reason, this wood is highly recommended for all magic involving divination, communication with the dead, and internal truth. In addition, this wood is excellent for magic involving health and beauty, physical things that you can see and touch. Physical healing or the clearing up of cosmetic flaws would be good uses for this wood. A very grounded wood, it can also help bring about positive change, even if that change does include some conflict. It can help bring about a feeling of being at home.

A Beautiful way to start the new year! This wonderfully crafted walking stick from WoodenImage will get you there and back again!
This wizard walking stick is carved from 1” square basswood stock, 68” tall (5′ 8”). It is carved from the top, extending down 20″, and sports two faces, back to back. The first 6” or 7”consists of the wizard from the tip of his hat to the bottom of his Fu Manchu mustaches, and the remaining 15” consists of the runout of the beard carved into a distinctive patterned design.
It is hand-carved, one-of-a-kind, unique, and different from the rest. Each has several coats of Minwax combination polyurethane/honey maple stain finish, which is then sanded to a 360 grit sandpaper smoothness, and then has several coats of a special mixture of tung oil and spar varnish applied, and steel-wooled between coats with 000 fine steel wool.
The bottom end sports a durable and non-scratching hard rubber tip, that gets good traction on most surfaces, especially sidewalks and pavement. If you would like one with a spiked point for ice and slippery trail walking, I can do that if you are willing to pay the extra cost.
These walking sticks are great for hiking, especially for those of us whose knees aren’t quite what they used to be, and especially walking downhill, when your knees can take a real pounding. And with a walking stick in each hand, you will get maximum support, and they are great for crossing creeks and rivers with slippery or rolling rocks beneath the water. They also look pretty cool leaning against your fireplace mantel or sticking out of your umbrella stand.
