Unraveling The Hidden Meaning Of Hex Signs | Entertainment – Wgal Home

The birds are said to represent good luck. The heart represents love and the tulip represents faith. “Willkom” means “welcome to our home.” Eric Claypoole View Large Photos Two distlefinks, a German word meaning “thistle finch” or goldfinch birds, are the focus of this Eric Claypoole design. The birds are said to represent good luck. The heart represents love and the tulip represents faith. “Willkom” means “welcome to our home.” Eric Claypoole Many barns in Pennsylvania are decorated with barn stars or hex signs, but not many people know their true origin and meaning. Related Photos: The hidden meaning of hex signs Why were these signs painted on barns in the first place? Patrick Donmoyer, author of the book ” Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars ,” says the most common reason is for decoration. “I’ve found that many painted the signs ‘chust [just] for pretty,’ as you’ll hear locals describe it,” said Donmoyer, site manager at the Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center. He says the tradition grew out of folk art that German settlers brought with them to Pennsylvania. Originally, the designs were based off of stars, hence the “barn star” designation. “At the time, there was a strong connection between agriculture and the cosmos that was accounted for during planting and harvesting,”said Donmoyer, who’s traced the stars back to the 1780s. The term hex is derived from the German word hexafoos, which means “witches foot.” It was coined in the 1920s by the author of “Pennsylvania Beautiful,” who claims to have heard it from a Lehigh Valley farmer. “The word doesn’t represent why barn stars were painted,” said Donmoyer. “However, because of the book, it’s been a term that’s attached itself to the practice.” Plain versus fancy There is a misconception that hex signs derive from Amish culture, but the group did not start the practice. Donmoyer says most Amish consider the idea of painting a colorful barn star a type of pride or vanity. In Pennsylvania Dutch culture, the Amish are considered “plain farmers,” while other Pennsylvania Germans are considered “fancy Dutch.” “That’s why you’ll see more hex signs in Berks County than Lancaster County, which was mostly settled by Amish,” said Donmoyer. Taking hex home Based out of Greenwhich Township, Berks County, hex artist Eric Claypoole says his interest in barn stars runs in the family. My father, Johnny Claypoole, learned from Johnny Ott, said Claypoole, referring to the renowned artist. “He moved from Philadelphia to Berks County in the 60s and started as Ott’s apprentice.” He says people have surmised that hex signs are symbols of good health, protection, numerology and astrology. “But mainly, we think they are symbols of good luck or good fortune,” said Claypoole. Claypoole says that as tourists began frequenting the area, they wanted to take a piece of Pennsylvania folk art home with them.Artist Milton Hill, of Virginville, started selling his hex signs on disks in the early 1900s at the Kutztown Folk Festival. “Artists started cutting out disks to paint their designs on and sell,” said Claypoole, who professionally paints both barns and disks.

The world we live in is very magical. There is nothing dark or sinister about the things she speaks/sings of. The fact that she is so in tune at such a young age says a lot. Listen to Lauryn, Erykah even Pharrell Lost Queen. Most of the people in TDE (Kendrick, Ab Soul etc) really listen to the words they speak and not the obvious superficial shit but just listen.

Ill probably be thumbed down and written off as crazy but thats fine. Just take a deeper look at life and the meaning of it. The 1% of the world know what most of us dont. You dont die You choose your parents and the experiences you have before you even get here. We just come back over and over as new people with new lives. Your dreams are more reality than the world we live in now. This is the dream world. And Im believer in God being in ALL things and ALL people and love. The story of Jesus is based on Osiris.

Our children are evolving, little silly pop songs dont work anymore, theyre being born in a different state of conciousness and music like this will intrigue them because they can understand it.

July 29, 2014 at 4:54 pm As a black man born in Africa, raised in Europe and travelled to Asia, Australia, Caribbean and South America, It pains me to see the way the American women are so blinded by the trivia. This 13 year old has just released a song that will stand up in the alleyways of time as TRUTH how can you make any negative or personal attack sly shade on a child delivering brilliance. On one hand you berate Nicki for poisoning the youth when the youth speak up you ignore them and instead start how commenting about how too grown she is being. You cant take wisdom because of her supposedly questionable rate of maturity?

Naples Masseuse Busted Offering Sexual Services To Detective – Wink-tv News

41 and Central Avenue. Wink News found out this isn’t the first time the owner has faced similar charges. Jianping Liu was back to work serving clients a day after police arrested her for prostitution. Wink News confronted Liu at her spa, but she told us to come back in 15 minutes. “No, I have a customer,” said Liu. We caught Liu sneaking out the back door of the spa and taking off in her Mercedes before she talked with us. Naples police say Liu offered the undercover officer a sexual favor in exchange for money during his massage. Her arrest has other owners at the plaza where she runs her business talking. “Naples Police are always right here,” said John Tenney who owns Valento’s Pizza. “That’s a terrible location to try to pull something like that.” Tenney said Queen Spa has only been open for a month. He says Liu owns the spa and keeps very odd hours. The hours posted on the door to the Spa show its open until 10pm everyday.

The Garage Salon and Spa

The CVS buildings face on Broadway offers a 20 tall wall of concrete block, lacking in the entrances, windows, architectural detail and human scale we have come to expect along a retail buildings face on its primary street frontage. Ironically, CVS designers acknowledge this tradition by inserting a pattern of large, red, concrete block squares, which suggest a window pattern where none have been installed. As one travels south on Broadway toward the intersection with Fourth Avenue, the building shows little sign of entry, pedestrian friendliness or retail invitation, but rather acts as massive signage/advertisement for CVS. As one travels north toward the intersection, the CVS site greets us with a parking lot, a drive-through and unfortunately, a broad view of its loading dock. The CVS building has done an unnatural flip, with the pedestrian entry to its building off Second Street and its back on Broadway. Stout student foot traffic, which tends to take the shortest route between points A and B, will almost certainly cut across the CVS driveway, drive-through route and parking lot to move between Broadway and the north campus dorms like Red Cedar Hall.

Necole Bitchie.com: [new Music] Willow Smith’s New Song ’8′ Is Very Mystical

-1 A non E mou S Reply: July 29th, 2014 at 11:40 am your two cents are worthless, next time give a dime because your common cents have failed you. So you rather she be a bobblehead? In the words of Peter Griffin Who hurt you? Who hurt you? I love me some willow and I think her music is great but girl please scale it down with all this new-age pseudo intellectual bullshit. Numbers have been following me and my friends Becoming one with all that it Consciousness can be raised on this planet lmao She sounds like me and my friends when we went through our hippie phase in college. Girl spare me. I understand that shes a young teen whos being exposed to all these different things and at that age shes like a sponge. So when she is introduced to something new and different she feels like she needs to absorb it and become that. I can guarantee you a few years from now you will never hear her speak about numerology again and she will be on her next voyage to transcendent self discovery at the ripe old age of 16. -_______- +7 Maybe Its Me Reply: July 29th, 2014 at 11:49 am So confused as to why these honest and unbiased comments are getting thumbed down. Its not even shade, its just an honest opinion followed by an opening compliment. Even the response above this one was poorly received and it had a similar positive, yet expressive, tone. Im beginning to think that the demographic of this blog has shifted to self-absorbed 13 year olds or 30-somethings wishing to be young again, thus they are gobbling up the popularity of those a third their age. Interesting. Either way, thanks for the music post, NB! trippy mane Reply: July 29th, 2014 at 3:30 pm Im well beyond my college years and my hippie phase and through my own experiences have realized most of what she is saying is truth. The world we live in is very magical. There is nothing dark or sinister about the things she speaks/sings of. The fact that she is so in tune at such a young age says a lot. Listen to Lauryn, Erykah even Pharrell Lost Queen. Most of the people in TDE (Kendrick, Ab Soul etc) really listen to the words they speak and not the obvious superficial shit but just listen. Jhene Aiko Its funny that people write this stuff off as New Age philosophy but yet believe in Jesus and his story which is full of magic. They put it in our faces how the world really works with the movies Matrix, Terminator, Mr. Nobody, Cloud Atlas I can go on and on and on. Ill probably be thumbed down and written off as crazy but thats fine. Just take a deeper look at life and the meaning of it.
