Bubble Ball and Wand by Lance McGregor & Othr

Bubbles are a crowd-pleaser on every party and this exceptional 14k Gold wand and white ceramic ball are an eye-catcher even if they are not in use. Lance McGregor created the Bubble Ball an Wand together with the 3D-printed  design and home accessory specialist Othr.

‘Rich and rare were the gems she wore’ (first line of the Thomas Moore poem). Margaret Murray Cookesley (British, c.1850-1927). Oil and gouache on oil varnish on panel. Cartwright Hall Art Gallery. 

RICH and rare were the gems she wore,
And a bright gold ring on her wand she bore;
But, O, her beauty was far beyond
Her sparkling gems or snow-white wand.

“Lady! dost thou not fear to stray,
So lone and lovely, through this bleak way?
Are Erin’s sons so good or so cold
As not to be tempted by woman or gold?”

The Badger and The Lion
  • Hufflepuff: Sitting near the Quidditch practice fields munching on a brownie and reading a book. Fall leaves fall all over and practice for broom flying is going on.
  • Gryffindor: flying broomstick and noticing the Hufflepuff has come every day. Has a bit of a curiosity even though most houses poke fun at them.
  • Hufflepuff: light gets blocked and glances up seeing Gryffindor leaning over looking at the book
  • Gryffindor: says hi. Asks what they are doing.
  • Hufflepuff: says they like to read and it's quiet for the most part. They can block out the yelling of broom riders and don't like being surrounded by people bumping into them.
  • Gryffindor: asks if they can sit down. Expecting pushback when the Hufflepuffs face turns bright red.
  • Hufflepuff: says they'd love to sit and they may not have a lot of snacks but splits the brownie in half and hands it over. Here they say with a big smile.
  • Gryffindor: sits down and munches with them, looking at the tree colors and talking about clouds.
  • A few weeks go by, and the Quidditch match goes on! Hufflepuff and Gryffindor face off!
  • Hufflepuff: wears a gold and red hat for their Gryffindor friend no Hufflepuff says otherwise and cheers too for everyone!
  • Gryffindor: bludger winds up crashing into their shoulder and they go down! Through pain slowly goes in and out of consciousness seeing a gold and red hat murmuring words with gold light coming from wand, fades out to hearing the person get sent from the room.
  • Hufflepuff: waits all day outside the infirmary gathering red leaves and flowers and pretty things to decorate the small area.
  • Gryffindor: opens eyes and sees Hufflepuff sprawled on bed snoring. Baked goods in a basket on their bed side. A card is under their hand. They take the card and read "you did great!"
  • Hufflepuff: wakes up startled and rubs face trying to wake up. Asks if Gryffindor is feeling better.
  • Gryffindor: blushes deeply and nods feeling embarrassed. Says they are happy that Hufflepuff is there.
  • Hufflepuff: sits on the bed with Gryffindor and they eat cookies and talk about what they missed. Hufflepuff hands over notes for classes they missed.
  • Hufflepuff and Gryffindor giggle and talk all day long and enjoy cups of hot coco by wand light till shooed to bed.

Earth and Water- wand!~

An interesting and unique two tone piece of drift wood wrapped in gold, swirling wire. A pink piece of dyed quartz is the focal point for this wand, with green malachite chips along the bottom length of the quartz point. Ruby Zoisite beads in various shapes finish off this beautiful design. The whole wand is 12 ½ inches long from tip to end. Perfect marriage of the elements Earth and Water!

You can find it in my shop here: The Magical Emporium!

Hestia, Guardian of Hearth and Home

Homeric Hymn 29, “To Hestia” (author and date unknown)

Hestia, you who hold as your lot an eternal seat,
The privilege of seniority, in every lofty home,
Both those of the immortal gods and those
Of men who walk upon the ground-  it is a fine
Privilege and honor that you bear; for never
Are there feasts for mortal men, unless the toastmaster
Pours out to you both first and last a libation
Of honey-sweet wine; and you too, Argus-slayer,
Zeus’ and Maia’s son, messenger of the blessed gods,
Wielder of the golden scepter, giver of blessings-
Come graciously to help, Hermes, along with Hestia
The reverend and dear.  For both of you dwell
In the splendid houses of men on earth; in your minds
You feel affection for one another; both of you
Are noble supports for households; you follow
In the train of intelligence and youth.
   Hail, Cronus’ daughter, both you and Hermes of the gold wand;
But I shall remember you and another song as well.

  Ἑστίη ἣ πάντων ἐν δώμασιν ὑψηλοῖσιν
ἀθανάτων τε θεῶν χαμαὶ ἐρχομένων τ’ ἀνθρώπων
ἕδρην ἀΐδιον ἔλαχες πρεσβηΐδα τιμὴν
καλὸν ἔχουσα γέρας καὶ τιμήν· οὐ γὰρ ἄτερ σοῦ
εἰλαπίναι θνητοῖσιν ἵν’ οὐ πρώτῃ πυμάτῃ τε
Ἑστίῃ ἀρχόμενος σπένδει μελιηδέα οἶνον·
καὶ σύ μοι Ἀργειφόντα Διὸς καὶ Μαιάδος υἱὲ
ἄγγελε τῶν μακάρων χρυσόρραπι δῶτορ ἐάων,
ἵλαος ὢν ἐπάρηγε σὺν αἰδοίῃ τε φίλῃ τε
Ἑστίῃ· ἀμφότεροι γὰρ ἐπιχθονίων ἀνθρώπων 
ναίετε δώματα καλά, φίλα φρεσὶν ἀλλήλοισιν
εἰδότες, ἔργματα καλὰ, νόῳ θ’ ἕσπεσθε καὶ ἥβῃ.
   Χαῖρε Κρόνου θύγατερ, σύ τε καὶ χρυσόρραπις Ἑρμῆς.
αὐτὰρ ἐγὼν ὑμέων τε καὶ ἄλλης μνήσομ’ ἀοιδῆς.

Vestal Virgin, Jean Raoux (1677-1734)

Bubblestand


“Ah, what a wonderful day. The sun is out, the clouds are shimmering, birds are chirping. So peaceful,” Corrin said as she walked out into the fresh air of the Nohrian fortress. This was quickly followed by racket as she had dragged out some wood and nails and began to hammer them together.

A grumpy Gunter looked out the window of his room in the fortress. “Can we lower the volume, please? I can’t work with all that racket going on!” he called out.

“Oh! Sure thing, Gunter,” Corrin replied.

“Uh huh, right,” Gunter grumbled. What could Corrin possibly be doing with all that wood?
