The head irons of Tom Otter, who was gibbeted in 1806 for the murder of his wife Mary. After his body started to rot a family of willow biters nested within his skull, inspiring the rhyme, "There were nine tongues within one head, the tenth went out to seek some bread, to feed the living within the dead." #folklore #folkhorror #myth #legend #ghost #haunting #haunted #history #lincolnshire #tradition #weirdlincolnshire #skull #skeleton #folktale #occult #pagan #macabre #countryside #rural #rurallife #witch #witchcraft #magic

Something I like in December, is preparing decorations, hand painted boxes and handmade greeting cards to stick on wrapped gifts!!! I like when packaging is like a part of the gift and when people want to keep it afterwards! 🧚‍♀️🎨 I wish you all a good Saturday night and week end🎶🎶🎶 . . . #giftideas #christmasgiftidea #fairytale #folktale #outsiderart #outsiderartist #originalwork #adelineishavingfun #illustrationoftheday #illustratorsofinstagram #artprocess #repurposingart #paintedleaf #boc #deco #decoratedboxes #artisticpackaging #handmadegifts #handmadelove #folkart #folkartist #handmadepattern #patterndesign #surfacepatterndesign #flatlay #handmadegreetingcards #paperart #papercutting @adelwins

Swipe to read 2 versions of the Christmas Spider!🕷🕸🕷 Having a spider ornament is supposed to promote good fortune, and finding a real spider on your tree is a good omen. I love little folktales like the story of the Christmas spider. It's a little pagan and spooky, perfect for a goth Christmas! . . . . #pagan #witchesofig #witchesofinstagram #witchythings #witchcraft #witch #modernwitch #christmasspider #christmas #xmas #christmastree #folklore #folktale #christmasornaments #treeornament #treeornaments #christmasdecorations #christmasdecor #xmastree #gothgirl #gothicgirl #metalchick #altgirl #gothchristmas

The history of the Yew tree is steeped in magick and mythology. Yew trees were revered by the Druids as a symbol of life & death, resurrection & immortality as the long branches grow downward, take root and form new trees. Often planted near churches and graveyards because the roots were thought to thrive off of corpses and hold the dead in place, Yew branches were sometimes buried with the dead. Most parts of the Yew are highly poisonous but an extract from the bark is still used in modern pharmaceuticals today. It’s wood was traditionally used to make long bows including those used during the Hundred Years’ War, but there are many who still think cutting down a Yew will bring bad luck and omens of death to ones family. In Shakespeare’s Macbeth the king makes a poisonous concoction of “slips of Yew, silvered in the moons eclipse” to kill his rival. Sacred to Hecate a goddess associated with witchcraft & necromancy and a guardian of the underworld, it was believed this magical tree was a portal to other realms and a shelter for witches. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #flowerfairies #flowerfairy #yew #fae #faerie #december #magick #fairytale #fairytail #nostalgia #yule #yuletide #seasonal #vintage #vintagebooks #folklore #antiquebooks #folktale #cozy #candlemagick #cinnamon #holly #hollyking #hedgewitch #greenwitch #practicalmagic #witchcraft #witch #witchaesthetic #witchesofinstagram

“The Song of the Yew Fairy Here on the dark and solemn Yew, A marvel may be seen, Where waxen berries, red and new, Appear amid the green. I sit a dreaming in the tree, So old and yet so new; One hundred years, or two, or three Are little to the Yew. I think of bygone centuries, And seem to see anew The archers face their enemies With bended bows of Yew.” 🏹 Cicely Mary Barker ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ #flowerfairies #flowerfairy #yew #fae #faerie #december #magick #fairytale #fairytail #nostalgia #yule #yuletide #seasonal #vintage #vintagebooks #folklore #antiquebooks #folktale #cozy #candlemagick #cinnamon #holly #hollyking #hedgewitch #greenwitch #practicalmagic #witchcraft #witch #witchaesthetic #witchesofinstagram

Mergen and his friends A Nanai folk tale Translated by Jim Riordan Illustrated by Gennady Pavlishin 🏹♥️ The Nanai people are indigenous people who have traditionally lived on the basin of middle Amur in what is now the "Far East" in modern-day Russia. The Nanai, who still live in Russia and China, used to practice fishing and hunting as their traditional occupation. 🦌🐅 Mergen and his friends is a Nanai folk tale about a skilful hunter named Mergen. The tale begins as he sets out on a hunting trip but ends up showing mercy on three different animals. They all promise to repay Mergen for his kindness. Later, he is invited to be the guest of an old man in an unfamiliar village, where he falls in love with the old man's daughter. The old man sets him three near impossible tasks, upon fulfillment of which Mergen could marry the maiden. The tale is about how Mergen fulfills the tasks and not just marries the maiden, but also frees all the slaves of the old man. 🐜🦈 For older kids, this book can serve an introduction to the culture of Nanai people and the geography of Siberia. The Amur River, the basin of which the Nanai people have traditionally lived, plays an important role in the story. Despite being a hunter, Mergen's characterization reflects Nanai tradition of respecting nature. "He would slay no more than met his needs" - this sentiment is perhaps more relevant today than it ever was. It is Mergen's acts of pity on the animals that eventually help him win the maiden's hand in marriage. Mergen's proclamation that "we shall all be brothers and live in peace" instead of accepting the slaves the he was offered makes him more than a bold huntsman.

Why the Sun and Moon live in the sky - A folktale.⁠ Part 2.⁠ ⁠ The sun promised to build a huge house, and soon afterwards he returned home to his wife, the moon, who greeted him with a broad smile.⁠ The sun told the moon what he had promised the water, and the next day they began building a large house to entertain⁠ the water and all his family and friends. When it was finished, the sun asked the water to come and visit him.⁠ When the water arrived, he called out to the sun and asked him whether it would be safe for all his family and⁠ friends to enter, and the sun answered, “Yes, you may all come in.”⁠ The water began to flow in, followed by the fish and all the other water animals.⁠ Very soon, the water was knee-deep in the house, so the water asked the sun if it was⁠ still safe, and the sun again said, “Yes please come into my house,”........⁠ Part 3 and the end tomorrow!😊🙏⁠ ⁠ #folktale #moonandsun #theend #friends #sky #heaven #life #blessings #gratitude #happiness#love #lightworker #medium #guidance #spiritualguidance #tarot #healing#gammawavehealing #lawofattraction #coaching #icf #icfcoach #lifecoach#withtheabilitytochangeyourperspective
