Yes,you in the far corner over there!!! Correct! First you clean. Then you cleanse. With sage. Of course.
So after vacuuming out and wiping down, I placed bunches of dried sage into my small cauldron, then lit it and saged the heck out of my new-old cupboard. (the dining room, living room and kitchen got saged pretty well too!)
This cupboard is called a Larkin. It is what falls into the category of a "Hoosier" cupboard---a baker's cupboard. I am not sure of the age of this cupboard, probably made in the '30s. Solid maple with all the wonderful drawers and cupboards. The "counter" space needs work, as someone had glued a piece of linoleum on it. Looks like the original wood is still underneath the old dried up glue.
I'll show better photos after I get it fixed up and filled with "stuff".
After lighting the sage and saying some ritual words about chasing negativity away, I let the sage in the cauldron burn until it goes out. It's a good thing to do to dispel dark or negative energies that may cling to an object.
Glorious autumn day today!! Take care. Hugs from Robin.
