The accepted idea of medieval use of herbs follows the idea of the household herb garden. Herbs were very important to several aspects of the medieval home and didn’t just provide a medicinal function. Herbs were also used to season food and to ward away unwanted…

So, it dawned on me last night as I was writing this out in WordPad that maybe other people would want this list, too, eh? So, here are the days of celebrations that I have on file with the dates I’ve calculated them to fall on within my own fixed calendar.

Questions for Tess Dawson

Mine was one of the comments that were censored by Ms. Dawson. This, however, really does not matter in that I have a habit of keeping record of absolutely everything I post, including commentary on blogs, on Facebook, etc. This is a very good habit to get into, btw.
Ms. Dawson, et al will note that none of the questions posed by Grim’s Wolf have been adequately answered. While some may feel that she is, “0ne of us”. I however, adamantly and resoundingly disagree with that sentiment. Disingenuousness is never appreciated in any context at any time. Being somewhat of a celebrity in the Pagan / Reconstructionist etc. communities also does not give one a “pass”.

Sekhem Pendant

I just got my new pendant from my friend, Aidan Wachter, who does some amazing pendants in silver. He also does custom work This is a one that I helped design. I received it just before Yule. To put it mildly, I absolutely love it!

He will be offering this particular piece in the future on his website which can be found at.

Aidan’s work is top notch, the highest quality silver and he has very reasonable prices along with just being a generally very cool person. Check out his work!

EDIT: I have been indirectly coaxed into trying my hand at the 30 Day Talisman Challenge as proposed by author and podcast extraordinare, Andrieh Vitimus. My spiritual sister, Ashtoreth Eldritch became involved and it looked like a great way to start out the New Year. And so now, I am under the wire in telling Andrieh, “Hey! I want to be included!” So here I am.

The next post in this blog will likely be the ritual that I have been writing surrounding the dedication of this particular amulet. I have also been toying with the idea of video blog that I will upload to YouTube as well.

The Kemet is Cool Project

pendant In my travels, being fresh from bed and my 30 second commute to my office, I was thinking that the prevailing theme here on my blog, on Tumblr and on my Facebook page is all about Kemet. All in all, I find that it doesn’t really matter what anyone’s individual opinion on Kemet is. For all of us, its the art, the religion, the culture and the history are truly what draw us. What matters to the most people is just that we are drawn to it – the why sometimes is rather intangible. There is a simple, yet sophisticated beauty that is timeless and it is that which speaks to the deepest part of our individual psyches.

So, that focus is going to be reflected here on my blog at fannyfae.com and on my Facebook page (as usual). It seems to be what people most resonate to, and it gives me a chance to show others with the same love of Kemet or Ancient Egypt things they may not have heard of, aritists they may not be aware of that do fantastic work.

I look at this as my effort to get away from the infighting and the petty squabbles that seem to plague so many groups. I don’t care if the resource is Kemetic Orthodox, Reconstructionist, Afrocentrist, mainstream Egyptology or what have you. One truth remains: We each love the Two Lands for our own reasons, and no one else can dictate those reasons to us except by the callings of the deepest place in our kas. This project is specifically about that and that alone with no other agenda.

Ankh, udja seneb! (Life, prosperity and health!)

Kemet Is Cool

In my travels from just fresh from bed, here to my PC, I was thinking that the prevailing theme here on Tumblr, my page on Facebook and my blog is all about Kemet. All in all, it doesn’t really matter what anyone’s individual opinion on Kemet, its art, religion, culture and history truly are. What matters to the most people is why we are drawn to it. There is a simple, yet sophisitcated beauty that is timeless that speaks to the deepest part of our psyche.

I have a new favourite artist, and I have found him quite by accident. Done in the style of “The Prince of Egypt” Sanio has some wonderful art of Ancient Egyptian historical figures that is not to be missed.

If this guy is not doing full animated films yet, someone at Dreamworks or Disney needs to snap him up quick! There is just too much talent here not to take a good, long and appreciative look!

sandrosanio:

Merit- Amun

This is the first daughter born to Ramesses from his chief queen Nefertari. She is wise but very snobish. She knows that she is the daughter of Ramesses and she uses that when ever and where ever she wants.

I added two servants with her, maybe her good friends.

This is the first time I shade the characters very careful and I asume there are huge anatomy mistakes but give me a break, it is my first time! 😛

Anyway, I was playing with shades, blurie characters in the background etc.

Maybe I’ll submit only characters without the backgorund and bluriness so you could see all the details I drawn on them.

(also I’ve added the mature content because there are visible breasts! (I hate that because ancient egyptians weren’t ”chaste” as we are.))

Hope you like it! 🙂

I know I do! 

Cheers! 🙂
