Very nice link Questa.  Thanks.

You're very welcome, Ashe!


Regarding what Marisol mentioned about symbols on barns:  Living in Pennsylvania, there are many Amish communities around with colorful "hex signs" on their barns.  I have a tendency to make crystal grids on them in my mind. lol  I'm sure they would frown upon that!  Below is a link about the story of hex signs if you're interested.  I never knew "hex" meant "witch" in German.

I lived and worked in the Allentown area for quite some time.  Many of the hexen signs DO have the Craft, (in their own way...similar to Cabin or Pow Wow), inherent in their designs.  True signs come from makers that are adept in the Craft.  Or they don't work!

Yes, Allentown!  Right up the road!

For what I've seen, Lancaster and Schuylkill counties have the most Amish folk.  I've always liked the color and designs of the hex signs.  I wonder, C_A, do you know if a design means or belongs to specific families?

While I know that there are certain ones that some families have used for generations, I don't know if any "belong to" a family specifically.

I saw some very complex ones on my way up to Hazelton, wunst.  Since I got along mit dem Dutch so well, I asked about them.  Apparently they're "temporary" and "mission specific".  That certainly smacks of a ward or charm.

Thank you for the links, OG!  The last one didn't work for me, but the first one was great!
