Baba’s Last Blossom ~ My Baba’s Garden Ritual Seed Box

CAD $165.00

My Baba was an amazing lady. When people would ask about her, I would always say, “Oh she’s good; she’s a brick shithouse!” I know that sounds kind of glib, but she was a powerhouse of a woman. Bordering on 6 feet tall, she could and would do anything she set her mind to.

She would speak to me in slurred Ukrainian English, and it was not till later in life while sitting in Ukrainian school that I realized I understood more than I thought.

“Don’t sleep in the moonlight! It will make you strange!” she would tell me, though I continued to inch forwards towards it. “Figoosmakam!” she would yell in slurred Ukie-English, meaning “a fistful of poppyseeds” when something was worth nothing.

I love her and miss her so much.

She would craft, garden, & bake like you wouldn’t believe—ice cream pails full of perogies and cabbage rolls. It didn’t matter who you were; if you came to her home, she made sure you were full of food and drink. I want to share her struggles, strength, and fortitude with you all so I have decided to create this magical tribute to her on this her birthday month. (she would be 104 on March 23rd ). 2024’s offering is a beautiful handmade and hand painted vessel from Ukraine and it contains some very special items.

This magical box has been hand painted and lacquered. It is a piece of art that is a traditional Ukrainian decorative painting style, originating from the village of Petrykivka in Dnipropetrovsk oblast. This painting style is traditionally used to decorate house walls and everyday household items. The earliest known examples of it date from the 18th century, but it continues to thrive and develop as a modern art form.

Nestled inside are packets of seeds of all types of plants. They don’t appear to have a rhyme or reason to them.. But they do. They were all growing in my Baba’s Garden, and this is where I played when I was a child.

Now my Baba always believed that seeds and plants grew better if they were  either raised by you or… let’s say “liberated”. Every seed contained in this set has either come from a plant grown by myself, which are always lovingly whispered to with spells and prayers or some of the seeds may or may not have been stolen from an alleyway…..

The last item you will receive is one magical ritual oil that has been made for my Baba’s Birthday. It is limited and only one Mother bottle of the EOs has been mixed, no recipe has been written.

Only 16 of these magical boxes exist. When they are gone they are gone.
