Thrift Store Finds!

Working in a thrift store and being an avid lover of Halloween merchandise I pride myself on my ‘spooky sense’, AKA the ability to hunt down cool spooky stuff.  I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces that have been added to my collection over the last year. Everything featured in the photo above came from a thrift store- including the dresser!…

Spooky Kids TV Shows

Are You Afraid of the Dark? Oh Canada.  What is more frightening than sitting in the wilds of a Canadian forest?  Convincing yourself that there are ghosts and serial killer clowns lurking between the trees by telling scary stories in said forest. The Tale of the Hungry Hounds and The Tale of the Dark Music are two of my favorite episodes.  The latter…

Spooky Home Decor- Pillows & Blankets!

I have a lot of Halloween stuff.  I collect throughout the year regardless of season and somehow when Autumn rolls around I always have space for more stuff.  This has led to a mass collection of home decor that I love.  My guest bedroom is where I keep most of my decorations and I joke around with my fiancee that I bought…

Spooky Accessories- Purses!

I’m adult enough to admit that I spend unhealthy amounts of time sifting through Pinterest (including various website links by proxy) just so I can add them to my wish lists! If you’d like to take a look at some of the cool stuff I’ve found on Pinterest because I’ve already done the looking for you,…

Mori & Dark Mori

Mori means “forest” in Japanese.  This fashion uses soft, loosely fitting layers of clothing such as flowy dresses and cardigans in earthy natural colors and vintage inspired motifs.  Giving your outfit texture and depth through layering is very imporant!  Flower, animal, and crystal accessories are prominent in this fashion but very delicate in feature. I asked my friend…

Convergence

I recently attended a sci-fi and fantasy convention called Convergence in Minnestoa.  I’ve been attending regularly for the past several years and I’m always blown away by the vendors in their dealer’s room.  There are lots of jewelry and leather work vendors there with everything you could need for your upcoming renaissance festival or cosplay.  Two stores in particular…
