Witchy Wednesday: October 20, 2021

So… at least the goddamn Mercury retrograde is over. This one’s been a bitch, it seems. Although I guess there’s something to be said for the more one puts stock in such things, the more they affect you because it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy… but then the reason I...

Monday Memorabilia/Collections: Lemax Cave Sweet Cave

This week, a small and simple piece that is now the only retired piece I have, Cave Sweet Cave: It’s a battery powered piece that I keep on my bedside table for a little dose of Spooky Town. The two vampires wobble back and forth (they’re on small hanging...

Blog plans, my birthday, and some soaked flowers

There’s a break in the monsoon-esque rains of the day, so I popped out to take my garden pics for the end of this post. Things are looking weary out there right now, but they got pummelled last night. Kinda fitting for this time of the year, actually. And...

Friday Stitch Day update: October 15, 2021

We have a finish! Well, a couple, but let’s work big to little: I buckled down and wove in the ends on the “Pretty Maids” by Joyce Fassbender shawl that I mentioned last week. Then I buckled down and wet-blocked it to really finish it and get it stretched...

Monday Memorabilia/Collections: Lemax The Ghoulish Gourd Pub & Grill

Well, I’ve been covering a lot of what I bought this year, but here’s a piece from last year, The Ghoulish Gourd Pub & Grill: It’s a fun piece for an entertainment or bar district theme. Or if you have a ton of pumpkin-styled pieces in your display. As...

Lighter red, Barbie Ferrari, and the saga of the furnace non-filter

So… I bleached my hair, as I debated doing last week. Not that you can really tell, but it is a lighter shade of red despite 20 minutes with bleach sitting on there and then dyeing over with a medium blonde shade called “California.” Oh well. Baby steps. Or...

Friday Stitch Day update: October 8, 2021

Well, somewhere in the back of my mind I thought I had a couple half-done knitting projects kicking around somewhere and sure enough, they turned up when I was cleaning out the spare room closet. First up, “Interlude” by Shannon Dunbabin, knit with some handspun yarn I bought a...

Monday Memorabilia/Collections: Lemax Web of Terror

I swore I was done with getting more Lemax this year, really I did. Then I thought maybe I’d go pick up The Witching Hour, since it was on for 30% off and I do have a bit of a witch theme going with my acquisitions and current holdings....

Flannels and quilts and it’s time to dye my hair again

Well, the rains have come off and on this week, and monsoon season seems to be upon us for the next few months. Still, there’s been some sun, and the garden seems to be enjoying the change. Inside the house, October means the start of flannel sheet season, which...

Friday Stitch Day update: October 1, 2021

Happy October! It’s the season of wanting warm knits. You’d think that would mean I would have touched my Wassailing Stole as mentioned in last week’s post, but you’d be wrong. Instead, I tried my hand at knitting socks. Well, one sock. Well, I got a couple inches in...
