Honey Spas 2016

Getting Dressed

Getting Dressed

Because it is August 14th today, Carrot Soup is getting dressed in the Quimper Hitty’s traditional Ukrainian finery (which was made for Tansy two years ago when she went to visit our Ukrainian Hitty friend in Winnipeg).

It is believed that today the bees stop collecting nectar, roses stop blooming, the swallows start their migration south and the dew on the grass becomes cold.  This celebration marks the beginning of the end of summer. Honey Spas is celebrated in Russia and Ukraine.

Happy Honey Spas

Happy Honey Spas

Happy Honey Spas, and blessings on the honey.  We hope people everywhere are able to celebrate a joyful and abundant honey harvest…

…and do everything they can to make the world a better place for bees!

  1. Can’t take my eyes off of that wonderful dress and headpiece with those intricate little beads and ribbons. Beautiful. Love it. I hadn’t heard of “Honey Spas” celebration day but it’s lovely. Wish our “dew “would catch onto that day…yesterday on our porch (in the shade) the thermometer registered 110 degrees. Come on cool weather!!!!

    • We love the outfit too! I believe it was a collaboration of two and possibly three generations of Ukrainian-Canadians, who loved Tansy and her spirit of adventure…click here to see the post with Tansy dressed in this outfit for Ukrainian Easter.
