*gasp* Baba Yaga...

Ohhhh my goodness....its Baba Yaga...

For the record, I have adored Baba Yaga since I was a little girl. She just wasn't scary to me...she was the stern exterior grandmother with the mile-wide soft spot. If you found the soft spot, she was awesome. That didn't mean she couldn't kick ass...that's what made her an awesome grandma. But there was the comfort of knowing she wouldn't do something bad to someone who didn't deserve it.

And I find that there's a contest for her over at Mrs. B's. Well, not her, obviously, but a wall hanging of her. And it's beautiful. It pictures her flying around in her mortar (I would assume) with her broom sweeping away any sign of her passing. Granted that may be the pestle that allows her to steer, but it looks like the broom. Don't take my word for it, go look! Ahh, Baba Yaga...grandma, will you come home?


  1. Yep, that's her mortar that she's flying in and the broom for her tracks. Not sure where the pestle is! Baba Yaga was the first not-quite-a-Goddess that I wrote about on Goddess a Day. But, as I said then, if I say she's a Goddess, then she's a Goddess.
    If you don't win, there is another card of her in my shop. It's not exactly the same, but pretty close, and when she sells, I'll probably replace her. She has been popular, both as a card and a charm.

  2. Yay! You won! She'll be in the mail today.

  3. Yeah, I was really happy to find that out! ^_^ Looks like grandma will be coming home after all.


I love hearing from people! ^_^
