The spooky ornament

Many many years ago on one of my charity shop hunts I Bought this ornament and had no idea why,when I got it home it freaked me out,I did not like the hooded figure so I put it away in a drawer thinking I would sell it at a bootsale,I forgot all about it.

When I became Pagan \Wiccan I remembered the ornament and realised that it was probably a handfasting (pagan wedding ceremony) gift,that the hooded figure symbolised the priestess who joins the couple together !

I looked in the drawer,it was gone,it drove me insane for about 8 months,I knew I would not have thrown it away and I did not remember giving it to anyone !

When my dad was dying in hospital my uncle had cleaned up the house for him and there on the sideboard was the ornament ! It really was not my dads sort of thing,I have a sort of idetic memory but had no memory of giving it to him, I could not question my dad as he was too unwell ,so I asked my brothers if I could take it home,

A week later my dad passed and not long after that I went to put something in that same drawer only to find a photo of my dad in his younger years staring up at me ! That photo had not been there before.

I suddenly realised the link with the mysterious ornament and it being found at my dads house….

I was obviously drawn to it because I was going to become Pagan in the future ! (At the time I was a Buddhist)

Due to family members who messed up my life I did not know who my real dad was until I was 27 ,he just missed being at my wedding 😦

We planned to have a pagan handfasting so that he could attend some kind of “wedding” but that did not happen in time before he died ,due to a few people letting me down on the robes 😦 knowing my dad he probably would of found a handfasting weird but he would of attended ,he used to call me “a ippy” (dropped his H’s as he was a cockney)

So in some small way,the ornament ending up at his house and picking up his energies means that when we do finally get our handfasting I can have the ornament there,his presence will be around that way.(he is always making himself known anyway, bless him)
