Under a Red Moon Full of Blood, Scary Things Are Rising from the Mud…

El Dia de los Muertos will never truly be Halloween without a few Deadly Nightshade seeds…
Doesn’t the title of this post offer the most creepy-delicious Halloween imagery EVER? The quote came as part of a glittery gift package I received from Ms Misantropia. I’m enchanted by every single thing she sent, but those words and my Belladonna seeds made me happy beyond belief. Wit, stones, glitter and a little death… what else could a witchy soul wish for around these holidays?

We ask and the universe answers. My beloved Oma Linda,  from Olde Baggs ‘n Stuft Shirts, and her sweet grandbabies have filled the Witch/Piano Man household with beautiful blessings. I can’t say that I was speechless when I opened the box because that would be a lie—I was shrieking. Look at this, my Wicked Luvs, and see that my glee howls was not unjustified:

The next bit, I won from Mario Zeleny’s Sancti Spiritus giveaway. Everything is super cute, but what touched my heart the most were the dog biscuits. When I won, a few weeks ago, I wondered what I was going to do with the dog treats (I don’t have a dog living with me). But like I said before, the universe knows… These happy Halloween doggy treats will go on my altar for Faye, a sweet corgi who left for the Summerlands a few days ago. I hope her mommy approves of the sweeties…

And because Death and Life can’t exist without each other, Judy added some life to our household. If we are lucky, next spring our house will be home to the radiant beauty of a passion fruit flower.

Thank you, Ms Misantropia, Oma Linda, Mario and Judy… I love, love, love my wonderful gifts! Speaking of gifts and Halloween yumminess…

  9. Wow, that was some unusually fast postal service right there! I'm so glad you got the package before Halloween - and that you liked it!

    The Belladonna has (rightly so) sprouted all over my green house now. I will have to arrange a Sabbath in there at some point. Can you envision it - dozens of witches dancing around, high on Deadly Nightshade? :)

    Congratulations to all the winners of your awesome giveaways too.
