Away with the Faeries…

Hello out there Earthlings!

The darkness of October and the imminent Canadian winter has encouraged me to start a blog.  Here,  I hope to share small parts of my day living in the country, artwork and sketches, knitting and patterns, herbalism, our quest for self-sufficiency and last but not least, my love for tradition and folklore.

The name “Finfolk & Oak” stems from where my family and I live, by the sea and with the trees.  Moreover, the magical connotations of the finfolk or sea people of folklore and the majestic oak tree point to our love for the Otherworld.  I tend to walk through this life always thinking about things that arguably aren’t there…>.<

  1. Via your Instagram, I found my way here. And am so very, very, very happy that I did!!!

    Such a joy, this blog will be! All you plan to share with us! Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes.

    I am on IG as to_notice_ (https://www.instagram.com/to_notice_/). And I blog from Moon Spinners blog. (http://moon92spin.blogspot.com/) I leave this links, this way, because I am not familiar with link-leaving, on WordPress.

    Thank you so much, for doing this blog.

    Late Autumn blessings,

  2. I don’t remember how I came to find you on IG, but I’ve been following you there for quite some time. I feel a kindred spirit – the drawings, nature, elementals & faeiries, PEI, Nova Scotia, and of course the Lopi knitting. I’m SO glad that you have ventured into the blog world, for you have much to share with the world. Blessings & abundance to you! 🍁🍂🐏🐑✨✨

    1. Hi Bonnie,
      your message has really warmed my spirit, thank you so much! It;s so heartwarming to me to know that there are others who feel kindred with art, nature, the otherword and knitting. I feel like it’s such an odd combination and have felt really quite alone in my interests.

      Blessings & abundance to you as well! (how sweet, I really love that!)

      1. Hi Julia,

        Yes, one can feel quite alone with regards to the other side of the veil. It is sad that most of the human population sees only the physical realm in front of them and takes that as their only reality. And yet, I have hope that as the consciousness of the world shifts to one of Light, Life, Peace, & Love, more people will open up to what the true reality is. I have been conversing with nature (on both sides of the veil) since I was a child. It feels so natural.
