Explorations Into Liminality
“and there came an arm and a hand above the water and met it and caught it, and so shook it thrice and brandished it, and then vanished away the hand with the sword in the water.”

Witch on Wheels


Witches in the world never cease to amaze me.

I was in the company of many of them on Friday, fortune be mine, and I wanted to share my great good luck in meeting one in particular. With the full moon at hand and my Cancerian nature being pulled into customary lunacy, I was flying off my broom handle and in rare form vending at the Spiral Dance ritual. I shared my table with someone who was organized and calm in the midst of my maelstrom of madness, but despite the disparate energies we brought, we got along fabulously and found fun and common ground at what turned out to be a less than monetarily abundant event.


Witch Rebecca made these poppets, Dammit Dolls.
Ferociously charming creatures. She was also selling mini witch hats and crocheted wacky adorable beanies for friends.




She drove up in her Witchmobile, all eyes riveted with fascination and barely-veiled covetousness (you must click on that link and see all for yourself!). She oozed great style and artistic precision, if you can imagine.















What I didn't find out until a couple of days later, is that she *made* the Witchmobile, and it is not her only automotive creation. She also constructed Carthedral.

This is just one amazing photo, and you will be all the poorer if you do not view all of them on her website. I am utterly flabbergasted and delighted to the point of jumping up and down. Repeatedly.









Rebecca Caldwell just began a blog and she is off to an amazing start. Check her out. Look her up. She oozes witchy feminine creative girl power, and you will be inspired.

Thank you so much, Julie! It was so fun meeting you at the Spiral Dance! I'm still trying to figure this whole blog thing out (I'm a little slow!) but it really is fun. I figured out how to enabled comments after deciding not to be such a worry wart. Thank you!

Wow. I had no idea there was such a thing as ArtCars! Almost makes me want to glue flat marbles to the hood of my car, too. Your friend is quite talented. The Witchmobile is awesome and the Cathedral ... stunning.
