Two Contests Ending Soon!

We have two wonderful contests with time left for you to partake in!  Please enter and spread the word to others!

Juniper's Custom Item Contest
All my sweet, dear customers know what a wait my custom order list can have and how I stopped doing custom creations about a year ago.  Now, for Juniper, I'll make whatever item the winner wants for 20 cents and will send it anywhere in the world for free.   Entering is easy!  All you need to do is donate to Juniper in any amount more than $5.  We're about two-thirds of the way to covering her current expenses and appreciate all the generous help! For a chance at winning you'll need to enter by June 30th!

Errant Knight Summer Solstice Quest for the Forest of Flidais

It's that time again where the NightBlooming Knights head out in search of a legendary item for a chance at winning a special prize! View the contest listing here.

A knight-errant is a figure of medieval chivalric romance literature. "Errant," meaning wandering or roving, indicating how the knight-errant would typically wander the land in search of adventures. NightBlooming has a quest for those that would dare to take it. Though a challenge, the reward is great!

As NightBlooming's signature style is well known to our customers, we're offering up this summertime hair stick as a reward for the one who can unravel this riddle! The answer lies within one of my sold items, so the better you know NightBlooming’s work, the easier this may be.

(¸.•´ (¸The Prize:

Flidais was the Celtic Goddess of the forest, woodlands, and wild things. She was a shapeshifter who rode in a deer-drawn chariot through the thick of the wild and was associated with protection of wild animals. Built upon a spiraling stick by Elvenhair, this stick is topped with an abalone shell, dyed and coated to be a shifting emerald green full of deep blacks. It is set into the stick and accented by twin band of silver wire. Sadly, the pictures utterly fail to capture the shifting beauty of the stone.

The Forest of Flidais Hair Stick has a usable length of up to 6 inches and a total length of 7.75 inches.

We'll do another quest for the Autumn Solstice! So even if you don't win please try again then :)

Use the hint to find the right listing in my Sold Items, then look in the item description or photos to answer the question. The contest will run for a week (closing at 12am on Tuesday the 28th of June), and a winner will be randomly drawn from all those that submitted the right answer.

You are allowed only ONE GUESS and cannot amend your answer, so make your submission count! Please send me a CONVO with the your guess and a link to the listing you feel is correct. The winner will have the sticks shipped to them for free++ anywhere in the world!

Once the winner is announced they may check out with the sticks. Best of luck to you all!

Your Hint:
...Such belief is reflected in the names Fairy Caps, Fairy Gloves, Fairy Thimbles, Fairy Herb, Fairybells, Fairy-fingers, Goblin Gloves, Fairy Petticoats, Fairyweed, or Folks' Gloves, the fairies being sometimes called merely Folks since to speak of them explicitly was believed to get their attention and cause them to do mischief. In Gaelic they were Lus Mor, the Great Herb, for being the most magical of all herbs.

This hair clip may just get you into your own bit of fairy mischief.

The Question:
Praytell, what type of plant twines itself across the front of this Ficcare?


++Free shipping is via First Class USPS. If you would like a different shipping method or insurance, a small charge will apply.

Though the listing is for $0.20 as that is the lowest amount that Etsy will allow an item to be listed for, these fees will be covered by NightBlooming for the winner.
