apple wood BRiZEL BRiGiT CROSS house blessing FUNDRAiSER FOR TWiLiGHT by Brizel4theanimals' Shop

Brizel Brigit Crosses are a very unique adaptation of a Brigit Cross, made of apple wood which Brizel grows and prunes herself, and is perfect for your home or as a housewarming gift ! These crosses are solar symbols, equal armed and stretching in four directions, which symbolically encourages the strength of the Sun through our front doors and into our homes. The wood is carefully sewn together with colored hemp string... purple in the center and an elemental / directional color for each of the arms of the cross. There is a loop at the back for it to hang from. The artist owns some 20 acres up in the mountains of no. Cal where she has planted orchards and floral gardens. Funds will be put towards helping to sustain this habitat which attracts birds, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, bats... and it is also a mating ground for dragonflies ! Brizel, aka Nicole, works to provide a safe loving home for her animal pack (3 canines, 1 feline- all rescues); participates in EFA's COTM program; and volunteers for EFA'S MONTHLY CHALLENGE.
