The Holey Stone

 (aka Faerie Stone, Odin Stone)

a Stone with at least one naturally eroded hole going all the way through it


Okay, so... What made the hole?

That was the Dollmaker's first question.


Was it an ancient worm?

Tunneling through the mud creating long hollow tubular shaped burrows-

 Maybe these stones are cross-sections of worm tunnels!


hmmm... or....maybe not....

...eons of rolling... pushed around by glaciers and rivers....


A lot can happen when stones roll!

Maybe the holes were caused by pebbles lodged in the stone, and the pebbles popped out!

Or maybe there were softer areas within the stone

which wore away quicker, leaving a hole.




The Faeries did it! 

Folks DO call them "Faerie Stones", after all...

    Under the Spell of the Fey   

 Looking through the Hole of a Holey Stone

is said to grant hapless Humans the Power of Second Sight!

That they might SEE (and be seen by)  the Fey!


It was after collecting hundreds of Holey Stones

from local (Texas) riverbeds and beaches, over a period of years,

and having curiously peered through each and every one of their Holes...

that the Dollmaker became enslaved by Faerie Magic, without even realizing it,

while following a seemingly natural compulsion to create (around 8000) DOLLS...


Holey Stones are "Gateways" to new Behaviors!

 The Power of Stones to cause tectonic plate shifts in Career Direction,

revealed through incidents like these,

applies even (especially) to the modern Human

for whom the Mystical and Magical Aura of Stone Power

encourages the selling of (quite ordinary) Holey Stones on the Internet

for as much as $150 apiece! Yowza.

The Power of a Holey Stone!

Ah yes, my friends, never underestimate the lowly holey stone...

Here's why:

Amazing Amulets, Nature's Gifts

The following is probably the most common definition for the word amulet:

An amulet is a natural object used as a charm. 

Amulets may include:

stones, crystals, fossils, bird feathers found on the ground or in trees, 

four-leaf clovers, pieces of wood, nuts, shells 

(especially cowrie shells), dried flowers or other herbs, and seeds.


A good example of an amulet is a holey stone.

These have long been carried and worn as charms.

The holes are considered doorways or portals

through which someone can draw or repel energy.

For example, the holey stone can bring luck

or send away misfortune,

bring wealth or banish deprivation, and so on.





Many cultures use holey stones for divination. (knowing the future)

To divine with a holey stone,

the holder of the stone peers at the MOON

through the hole

to see visions and gain wisdom.

Holey Stones are excellent for meditation  and creative visualization. 



Some fossils, such as this ammonite (ancient squid) also have natural holes in them and assume the same magical qualities as a holey stone.

Stones talking to one another?

and may communicate with one another

through their

"common ground"....

"In the garden more grows than the gardener sows."

 Old Spanish proverb


SUMMER Vegetables! Everywhere!

Ah... the Dollmaker waits for this all year! Home grown tomatoes! yay!

This year there's even a new Farmer's Market across the road!


And in the Back Yard....

Mason, the Dollmaker's faithful companion of thirteen years,

 standing beside the Daylilies


Remember all those caterpillars a few weeks ago....

Walking out the back door, the Dollmaker spied

a butterfly hatching in the weeds...
