Tony's Forge

Last night we blessed Tony's forge. Friends came over & brought with them a candle that had been lit from another candle that had been lit from Brigid's Flame in Ireland. St. Brigid is the patron saint of blacksmithing. February is her month, so it seemed like perfect timing to bless Tony's forge. We lit a special candle from their candle for Tony & then he lit his forge with that flame. We also blessed it with water that came from the White Well at the Chalice Well in Glastonbury, England. The White Well is Brigid's Well. He hung a Brigid's cross that I made for him over the door of his shop. It was very cool! Can't wait to see what he makes! Stay tuned!

Well done. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes from this new forge!

I can't wait to see the forge! And, just like your art, I'll put Tony's stuff in my store if he wants to do that. I'm sure he's going to be amazing! After all, he's your husband. :)
