Easing in to Halloween 2017

Sorry about the previous entry before saying, welcome to Halloween 2017!
The grave of Thomas Riddell. Greyfriars Kirkyard. We traveled to Edinburgh, Scotland in April. A geeky highlight was looking for the gravestones that inspired J.K Rowling while she was writing the Harry Potter books. Located in Greyfriars Kirkyard.

In May, my father passed away in CA. The funeral home shipped his cremains to me in Oregon.

First time I had seen one of these stickers. So, naturally, I took a photo to use for Halloween decor.

The Women's March

I will be marching in my city. A sign made Friday night.

Hats made to give out at the march. Its crafting... just not Halloween. Excited, so I had to share. :o )

The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, read by Neil Gaiman


There is a wonderful story about how Neil has participated in the fundraiser every year. How he donated a copy of Stardust for the fundraiser, and what happened after, is also a good read.

Dark and wonderful things

Chatting with the artist lead me to this web site with art work that made me very happy.

The artist is Bill Crisafi. The print above, Dreams in the Witch House, is on my Yule shopping list! She was summoned by Darkness is another favorite.

Lanterns

These fortune teller lanterns were on clearance at Home Decorators Collection after Halloween. They are now part of the Yule decorations.

Clear glass with a fortune telling hand on one side and a phrenology head on the other side. Testing diffusion methods with 2 different sheets of vellum. Tried white vellum and wax paper.

Final choice was tracing paper.

Nice warm glow from the flicker candles at different heights.

My early 1900s swim dress costume from Halloween night.

You too can have fun making your own vintage photos at the Japanese photo generator.
