“The Witch,” 1882. Between 1879 and 1895 six editions of Ardern Holt’s Fancy Dresses Described; Or, What to Wear at Fancy Balls were published in London. The book is partly a how-to guide for those planning on making their own costumes for a costume ball but the book is also part-advertisement for the costumes available at Debenham & Freebody of London, England.
WHAT IS A HEDGE WITCH? A Hedge Witch is a solitary practitioner of the herbal arts - both, medicinal and spiritual. Her cupboard contains the remedy for what ails you - physical and spiritual. A Hedge Witch does not belong to a coven. She does not follow the tenets of any sect or organized religion. Her craft is her own - usually handed down to her by family and honed by her own experience and research. )O( ~Krystal~ )O( (from The Pagan Circle on Facebook)
