Hey, everybody! The time has come for our next installment of Halloween Haze! Since the last post, I have just spiraled on all things Halloween. As I sit here in my trench coat and sip my iced pumpkin coffee from Dunkin Donuts, I bring to you…
This pewter skull swizzle stick from Martha Rotten . They are located in Baltimore, Maryland (as well as an array of other places). I was first introduced to them at this year’s Baltimore Comic-Con. They were located in Artist Alley and what caught my eye was all the skull wear they had. They had a bone bracelet that, if it was a little bit smaller, I would have bought. I looked around and found this. Now, I will say this is not something I use everyday, but when I get the chance to sit down in the morning and have a cup of coffee, this comes in handy to stir in my pumpkin creamer. It sells for $10 and in my opinion it is a grim-treat-yo-self.If you can’t make it to any one of their shops or vendor setups, they have an Etsy store too!
If I’m not casting a spell or doing my usual stuff, then I’m not really a candle person. However, Yankee Candle sent me an E-mail in August spouting off something about their Halloween collection. It unfortunately got lost in the ever growing monolith that is my E-mail inbox. Cleaning out my inbox the other day, I discovered that this is something I should look at and I probably should just stop by Yankee while I was shopping for some new pants (see the connection? no?). Any way, I came across this and not only is it a cauldron with a bat, but the smell is called Witch’s Brew ($16.99). See Yankee’s Halloween stuff here.
And here we are. See how everything comes full circle? This is the Dunkin Donuts iced pumpkin coffee with their pumpkin pie donut. If you missed it, Check out Strahlend-Leiche’s post on the donut As I have said before, nothing is fall without the pumpkin from Dunkin (ooohhh, I like that).
And finally, if you are following me on Instagram then you would see this little guy make an appearance (below). His name is Sam and he is from the movie Trick r’ Treat. I rented this on my Kindle Fire during one of my horror nights. I loved this movie. It is set on Halloween and follows four different stories and they intertwine. I don’t want to give anything away, but it is brilliantly done. Produced by Michael Dougherty and Bryan Singer, this is the quintessential Halloween movie (besides watching Hocus Pocus, Nightmare Before Christmas, and that movie with the guy in the William Shatner mask). Plus it has Sam (short for Samhain)! The cute (and deadly) spirit of Halloween.
That concludes part II of my Halloween Haze.
