Been so Busy!!!

Jimi and I have been spending most of our days at the Tea Shoppe. 
Thought I would share some photo's of a few things and progress♥

These awesome and totally rad pieces were speakers covers to a 70's speaker cabinate I found at Habitat for Humanity.  Three of the panels were detached from the cabinet so I asked to purchase the pieces. I purchased all three for only $11.00, how cool is that?

I Plan on attaching them to the unit you see below them which is going to be the counter in our space.  Of course, I will share photo's when it is all complete!!!

Also, I decoupaged a cabinet to hold some treasures at the tea shoppe that have been gifted to me throughout the years, plus a few other lovelies.  Take a peek at this progress♥

In addition, I have been working on creating more Prayer and Blessings Candles for purchasing at the Tea Shoppe.

Each have a specific intention and are infused with oils and herbal blends to coordinate with each intended prayer/blessing.

Also, finished the Bee Goddess Coins of which will be added to my Etsy Boutique and will also be available at the Tea Shoppe♥

I would say....I have Been so busy!!!

Hope youe week has been lovely thus far!

More From The Tea Shoppe and Magical Spaces of Home

Jimi and I were working at the Tea Shoppe the other night and we hung up this Woven Art Piece that has a lot of History for me...I posted this on Facebook about it...
~The wall hanging on the wall is a woven piece I did on a large weaving loom while in high school. My Dad had kept it all these years and just recently gave it back to me. After hanging it up tonight, I got a little emotional as I never imagined when creating it all those years ago that one day my art work, this piece would be hanging up in a place that I had dreamed about owning one day.
Thanks for letting me share this story with you.

Also wanted to share a project that I have been working on at home.
It was definitely time to reorganize my Herbal Apothecary.  I recently ordered lavender flowers and decided to place them into a large pickle jar that I have been saving.  I painted the lid a gorgeous purple color and labeled the jar.  I also transferred  my Lavender salts and Rose Salts into taller jars and added them to my apothecary area that holds my Celtic Salt, gifted from my beautiful friend Robin,  my mortar and pastel, a jar filled with rosehips and a few other lovelies.

and one last thing that makes my heart go pitter, patter♥

A jar filled with dried Blue Hydrangea Flowers.🌼
~I absolutely adore Blue Hydrangea Flowers as they remind me of days gone by as a girl at my Grandparents house.
My Hubby gifted me a beautiful plant for Easter....after enjoying the blooms. I of course had to preserve them as a remembrance Potpourri for he knows what always makes me smile!
I have placed this jar on our Altar/Mantle for Beltane.  I hope to film a video on our Beltane Altar soon♥

Sending you Beautiful Blessings for a week filled with Positive Energy!!!!
Much Love,
Milady Leela

Happenings This Week ~Painting at the Tea Shoppe and Planning/Journaling Treasures

On Monday with a little help from our Friends, Jimi and I painted the Tea Shoppe.  We kicked it out in 8 hours.  Check out the Album here on Facebook:
It is truly coming about and we are so looking forward to this new adventure in our lives.  I have been working like mad, creating new inventory for the shoppe.  The Prayer/Blessings Candles are really beautiful and smell so lovely with the addition of herbs,oils and spices that I have put into the wax.

Also, I have added a new collection to my Magical Coins.  This is what I posted about it on Facebook..
"Working on creating a New Collection of Magical Coins. This new collection is going to be called "The Goddess" Collection...these precious little gems can be placed in a space that Is sacred to you or held within your pocket or handbag. All are created with intention to bring you peace, love, prosperity and protection.
At the moment, you can visit my Etsy Boutique to purchase from "The Faery " Collection..."

Once complete, I will be placing these sweet magical coins at the Tea Shoppe too.

Well..still have work to do to get the Tea Shoppe ready for opening so stay tuned with me here and on Facebook at

I also want to share the treasures I found at Michaels this week for my Planner and Journals.  I am so excited about all this has truly become an addiction, Oh My!!!
I posted this photo on Instagram and it got such attention, so I am not the only one who is a Planner Nerd...Tee Hee!!!

Let me know if you are a Planner Nerd too...I would love to see some photo's of your Planners and or Journals. Haha.. I am (planning) to film a video of how I use my Planners and Journals and what they look like inside so stay tuned for that if you will.

One last thing, I put together this collage of photo's that you can print out to use as Journal Cards if you wish.

They are all so lovely!!! You can also frame the entire Page for a lovely wall collage photo.  I do recommend that you print it out on quality card stock paper for best results♥

Wake Up and Smell The Coffee

Last  week, I created a beautiful body and facial scrub using coffee.  I filmed a video on how I did this.  It was so much fun to make as my Grand-daughter helped me to do so.  This Scrub smells so fabulous and is perfect for moisturizing and energizing your skin.  Give it a try, I know you will love it!

If you enjoy the smell of coffee...this is the perfect way to wake up and energize during your morning routine.

Magical Spaces of Home

Sending you Many Blessings for Beauty, Love and Compassion
Today and Always

 This Lovely Candle is placed in my Kitchen.  I have a tabletop Altar and I love it so very is a constant reminder that there is peace within these walls.
 I adore creating Prayer Candles. I created this candle to remind me to Live Life Beautifully by Showing Compassion, Peace and Love and Leading by Example.
These Prayer Candles can burn for seven days and can then continue to be used even after the wax has been burned.
You can see how I create these types of Prayer Candles by visiting me on my YouTube Channel.
There are two parts to the video : DIY Ostara 7 day Candle.

Much Love,
