Happy Accident












Was listening to the main titles from the Fright Night remake while watching a video of Haunted Overload with the music track turned off.  It worked perfectly.

The Next In Line

In the market, the remainder of candy skulls from the Death Fiesta were sold from flimsy little tables. Women hung with black rebozos sat quietly, now and then speaking one word to each other, the sweet sugar skeletons, the saccharine corpses and white candy skulls at their elbows. Each skull had a name on top in gold candy curlicue; Jose or Carmen or Ramon or Tena or Guiermo or Rosa. They sold cheap. The Death Festival was gone. Joseph paid a peso and got two candy skulls. 
Marie stood in the narrow street. She saw the candy skulls and Joseph and the dark ladies who put the skulls in a bag.

Chalice Well Gardens

It'd be great setting up a Haunt in a garden like this.
I need to be Howard Hughes rich.

Revisiting A Cool Old Blog

Haikus & Charicatoos...






















with fall all around
and the Tennessee trees brown
david rakes the leaves
























a splish and a splash
he looks to the sky and frowns
as the sun comes out
























there’s nothing inside
his straw hair like a scarecrow
he’s so much like me

Witch City Wicks

The salty scent of the sea softened with forest greens, jasmine, green apple, juniper berries and musk.


















Star anise, fennel, spicy cinnamon cassia, nutmeg, fresh green herbs, amber and woods.

















Creamy vanilla offset with spicy clove and touch of black pepper gives it a nice kick.


















A must have for any Twin Peaks fan! A warm woodsy fragrance with bergamot, a heart of rose and violet, rounded out with amber, sandalwood, vanilla and a mysterious, earthy undertone.  


















Frankincense and sandalwood are two of the best scents to aid in opening psychic awareness, in addition to custom designed "spirit board" label.

Kringle Candles

Spicy woody undertones marry sweetly with the unmistakable and nostalgic aroma of crunchy fallen leaves.

















A rich licorice/fennel base blends with slightly sweet, toasty caramel and vanilla notes.

The warm, sweet, earthy intensity of Clove is like no other, truly one of nature’s great gifts.

Alien Scent

From Nature's Garden Candles:
A magical fragrance oil by Natures Garden that will make you feel like the Princess of the Universe!  Notes of bright melon and sparkling mandarin are mixed with orange blossom, star jasmine, and rose.  A woody base is supplemented by vanilla and musk.













And I thought Aliens smelled like Screaming.
