salt and bone


Altoid tin witches travel kit.

I always like to keep certain magical supplies on hand when I’m on the go, but I tend to put a vile in this pocket and a crystal in that pocket and I forget what is where.

Altoid tins make great organizers for when you’re out and about. I’ve also seen many people make travel altars with these for when they are away from home or if they are still in the broom closet.

This kit can be anything that you find is most important to have based in what you do. I’m a stickler for cleansing and protecting my surroundings. So my kit includes:

- Sea Salt
- Dragons Blood Salt
- Rosemary
- Smokey Quartz Crystal
- A wand (one that I made myself using fox bone, clear quartz point, and some tigers eye and fire agate beads)
- A Tea Light and some matches
- A striker for the matches glued to the lid
- Mini bowl made from epoxy clay
- Home made mini runes also made from epoxy clay.

What I love most about this tiny tin is that it can fit into a bag as small as a clutch or even your pocket and you’ll have everything you need.

So have fun and be creative with your kit.

12x10 rewatch: gosh, dean really hates how the “lily and her daughter” story went down in 1901. it probably reminds him of the fact that cas is not human and used to be a real “angel’s angel” back in the day (even if we know he’s always had a tendency to rebellion and compassion, but i dont think dean knows). 

dean can’t even look at cas after he knows what happened with lily (well, the “official” story)

(poor sam, always in the middle)

and before that, cas was so afraid of what dean and sam would think of him (but mostly dean).

anonymous asked:

Do you have any WWI/WWII books that you could recommend, after reading Salt to the Sea I'm obsessed with historical fiction🙌🏼

Oh man we’ve got some good ones! 

The Devil’s Arithmetic by Jane Yolen 

This award-winning novel about a young Jewish girl who finds herself transported back in time to the middle of the Holocaust is a can’t miss read full of emotion, horror, heart, and power. Jane Yolen is a master storyteller who handles history with a deft hand. Her newest book, Mapping the Bones, is also set during the Holocaust, and will be in stores next March. 

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys

If you loved Salt to the Sea you’ll also love Ruta Sepetys other WWII book, Between Shades of Gray about a young girl and her family as they are sent to a prison camp in Siberia after Soviet forces invade her Lithuanian village. Full of heart, hope, and tears, this is one book you’ll never forget. 

Flygirl by Sheri L. Smith 

All Ida Mae Jones wants to do is fly, but as a young black woman in 1940s Louisiana, she knows she can’t… that is until America enters World War II, and the Army forms the WASP - Women Airforce Service Pilots. Ida uses her light skin to pass as a white, but struggles with the internal repercussions of her actions. Moving, hopeful, and self affirming this is one you don’t want to miss!

Haven’t been crafting as much lately for my etsy to start making myself a few things to beautify my home. We got the exciting news that we are moving into our house march 1st, which means we finally get to be somewhere where we feel settled! I made this little sectional box out of an old wooden box I found at work ❤️

Okay, but like imagine ten-year old Sam coming home one day in some uniform and being like “Dad, Dean, I joined Boy Scouts at school.” And Dean and John are part amused part bemused like “Why the fuck do you wanna join Boy Scouts, Sammy, you’ve got more survival skills than all of them combined, including the teacher.” And Sam just rolls his eyes and starts packing his bag and is super exasperated like “Duh, that’s exactly why. They’re staying at this camping ground a few miles out and all the older boys are scaring the younger kids and telling them Cabin 13 is haunted n’ that they should go and investigate. Someone’s gotta look out for those dumbass amateurs. Hey, where’s the iron poker?” And John and Dean are this close to telling him the hell he’s going alone and little Sammy marches to the front door and holds up his hand all sassy like “I got this one, guys, I’ll call you when it’s done. Also Dad, I forged your signature on the admissions slip,” and John doesn’t know whether or not to be impressed and Dean’s like “Sammy, you don’t even own a phone!”

And of course they follow him and camp out far enough with binoculars so Sam doesn’t notice them and they’re kinda proud because Sam asks the older kids the serious questions and tries to get as much info about the history of the place and he writes it in a journal just like John’s. Then two nights later Sam follows a bunch of kids to Cabin 13 and Dean and John follow Sam, when the ghost starts attacking the kids and Sam fights it off with the iron poker and tells them to run and John and Dean are freaking out because Sammy’s run inside the cabin with a vengeful spirit. But then five seconds later the doors and this ten-year old hunter is walking out and talking to a ghost kid who’s crying and Sam’s all like “Look, I know you wanna play but kids these days just don’t understand, okay? Also frightening people like that is totally not cool, man. So let’s just get your bones and get you outta that house. No more cabin fever for you. Dean and my dad leave me alone all the time and it drives me crazy so trust me, kid, I know how you feel.”

And then John is mad and afraid like what the fuck, Sammy, don’t talk to it, and Dean has to hold him back and let Sammy finish working the case because he knows how proud of himself Sam is gonna be and that he’ll want to tell them all about it like look, I did this all by myself, so he manages to drag John far away long enough for Sam to salt and burn the bones and wish his new ghost friend goodbye. Then they hightail it back to the motel and pretend like nothing happened and the next day and they’re watching TV and cleaning out their guns when Sam calls Dean using a payphone to tell them “It’s done. Can you pick me up?” and so Dean and John drive all the way back and Sammy hops into the back and they’re both so proud of him when five seconds later he bursts into tears and John nearly swerves off the road when Sam climbs into the front seat and cries because “I was soooo scaaaared! Deeeean!”

And Dean and John just look at each other and smile and Dean just holds Sammy until he passes out and that night they have pizza and soda and pie and celebrate Sam’s first solo hunt.

Touchy, feely. [Jackson x Reader]

request by a super cool anon 

summary: You have been dating Jackson for  a year but you’ve known GOT7 since even before they were GOT7. One afternoon you and the GOT7 boys get a little touchy while hanging out. And this doesn’t sit well with your boyfriend… and it seems you are in real trouble.

genre: angst/smut 

a/n Mature content warning. if you’re not into it you should probably not read it lol. ~ JJ 

 You drove to the dorm and then buzzed yourself into the building with the code Jackson gave you.You knocked once on the door and it immediately opened before you tried knocking again. 

NOONA~” Yugyeom said giving you a running hug. It had been awhile since you’ve seen them. You let him squish you in his arms and yell “Gyeomie!” When he releases you are greeted by a hug from Youngjae, a high five from Mark, a tight squeeze from Jb, A cheek kiss from jinyoung and (just to piss Jackson off) Bambam kissed you quickly on the nose. “Yah Bambam!” You say more playfully then upset.  “Hey, babe.” You say as Jackson approaches the parade. “Hey, beautiful,” He says kissing you on lips. “Ewwwww” Bambam, Mark and Yugyeom exclaim. “Oh shut up you three.” 

They lead you to the living room where they set up a whole table of food, some board games, cards and soju (lots of soju). You looked back at Jinyoung who was behind you and who you suspected did most of the work and mouth wow. He winked at you and put his arm around your shoulder. “Guys this is amazing.” You all sit and eat as well as start taking shots. 

What you don’t notice is Jackson who is getting impatient at your skinship. But he doesn’t say anything since it has been awhile since you’ve seen them. Mark sat next to you pouring shot after shot both of you hammering them away at a staggering pace. Mark looks at you with a knowing look “Should we show them American style,____?” You nod back as everyone stares at you both. You grab the salt shaker and mark grabs a lime from the kitchen. You shake the salt on your collar bone. The boys sit in amazement watching Mark take a shot then lick the salt from your collar bone slowly and take the lime from your mouth. “What the fuck that’s so hot!” Jaebum says in a daze. 

 You guys play a bunch of random games when Mark suggests “Let’s play a game of dare. But if you don’t do the dare. You get hit in the butt” Everyone agreed excitedly. And immediately begun spinning one of the empty soju bottles to play. Except for Jackson who said nothing at all, but no one noticed. You end up getting hit on the butt by Youngjae and Mark for chickening out of their dares. It comes back to you again and it is JB asking this time “Okay _____, I dare you to makeout with Bambam.” You could feel your brain telling you “no” but you were drunk and everyone else (expect your boyfriend) was too. And your butt still really hurt from losing twice. So you say “Oh, what the hell” And grab the back of Bambam’s neck pulling him into a kiss that lasts 10 seconds.It is a sloppy, drunken and rough kiss  “I think that’s a success” Bambam says when you pull back. 

At this moment Jackson gets up without a word, grabs something from the counter and storms out of the apartment. You all sit in stunned silence. You can feel the alcohol still in your veins but this moment was enough to make you feel soberer.
