This month at Marsch Inspiration is a little fun for those warm summer days. This month Owner Melissa is doing a “Message in a Bottle” promotion this month. She has a Treasure Chest with mini bottles inside. You pick one out and each has some form of savings inside, so it’s up to your luck how much you can save! They also have lots of new items coming in daily, including by the end of this week they will have hand blown glass fountain pens! As a fan of pens, this is a must get item!
Also on the 21st are having another Free Skin Care Clinic for Rodan + Fields. For those that don’t remember Rodan + Fields is changing skin and changing lives by partnering with Marsch Inspirations to bring innovations in anti-aging skincare to everyone. Founded by world-renowned dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, the creators of Proactiv® Solution, Rodan + Fields’ patent-pending AMP MD™ System makes real results possible at home without injections or other invasive procedures.
What is a “Witches Ball” or “Kugel?” Witch Balls are free blown glass spheres, with 3 to 5 strands inside for collecting evil spirts and the like. Each one is unique with color, strands, bubbles, and size. The size is about that of a grape fruit. Witch’s Balls were very popular in 18th century England, but their actual origin is thought to be much older. For well over 300 years hollow glass spheres have been hung in windows to ward off witch’s spells, evil spirits and ill fortune.
Hanging these decorative balls in the window is thought to tantalize evil spirits which may be threatening a home’s tranquility. The evil spirit is mesmerized by the ball’s reflective beauty. When the spirit touches the sphere it is absorbed and trapped in the web-like strands of the glass inside the ball. Or that’s what the legend says, I think it’s a beautiful decorative item. Marsch Inspirations has a great collection of these items:
Kugel is the German word for ball and describes an ornament. The Owner’s Mom had two of these for our Christmas Tree growing up.
Really, it’s an artistic piece!
