Beloved and I aren’t the only ones celebrating a silver anniversary this year. On July 16th, Hocus Pocus will be 25 years old. Can you believe that?

OK, it’s not quite the 300th anniversary (325th if we’re being picky) of the Sanderson Sisters’ demise and subsequent resurrection on All Hallows Eve but if you’ve never seen the film, now is a great time to watch it. Already a fan?

Fairy gardens are all the rage right now and I do enjoy the whimsy of a fairy door, but I can’t say I’m much of a fan of the cute, brightly coloured affairs you often see.

This surprises you. I can tell.

My idea of a fairy door is rather more Medieval Gothic in nature, something like the one I made during the long dark days of winter, when I did a lot less blogging and a lot more creepy crafting.

It’s here! IT’S HERE!! Oh, wait. Actually, it’s THERE. As evidenced by these photos from America’s At Home Stores, generously provided by my spookalicious Insta-friend Miranda.

It’s no secret that when it comes to Halloween, I’d like to up sticks and move to America.

Or at least shop there.

Even though Halloween dates back to the Celtic fire festival of Samhain that hails from here in the British Isles, we Brits definitely get the raw end of the Halloween decorating deal.

One of the best things about being a maker is people give you stuff for your projects. Take this Hunter Laing Old & Rare whisky box for example. It was gifted to me during a rather splendid single cask whisky tasting session.

Oh, wait.

When I say ‘gifted’…

Perhaps ‘relinquished on pain of death’ would be more accurate.

Well… these whisky boxes ARE rather spectacular!

Happy Summer Solstice!

Today marks the mid-point of 2018. Can you believe we’re halfway through the year already? Just as today’s turn of the yearly wheel brings change to our world, I’m making a few directional changes of my own.

If you’re an email subscriber, you may recall I’ve recently been getting in a little ‘me’ time. Part of that process has been figuring out where I want to be heading and I’m sure it’ll come as no surprise to learn that I want to concentrate on Halloween.

One of my favourite Halloween makes of 2017 was the zombie Siamese Twins. Sufficiently creepy yet super easy to make, these spooky sisters formed part of a collection of macabre oddities on the hallway console during last year’s Halloween Open House.

The individual dolls were unwittingly donated by my then 4-year-old Granddaughter. Mum slipped their colouring-pen-stained bodies my way when Granbubba wasn’t looking, thinking she’d never notice. And she didn’t.

Sometimes, you come across a DIY idea that’s so head-slappingly simple it doesn’t need a tutorial. This easy side table is one such DIY.

Every summer, I sit in the garden and think, “I could really do with a side table for my tea/lunch/glasses/Kindle/wine/gin [insert myriad more uses here]”. Nothing fancy, just something small and portable to use during those long, balmy days of sun-lounging and naval-contemplation that can be easily stowed away the other 359 days a year.

Halloween doesn’t have to be creepy. In fact, I like a little chic with my celebrations. And what better than some white potion bottles to get the party started?

It just so happens that a Love Potion is also a timely reminder of our special wedding anniversary. Was it really only a week ago we were in Mexico?! Life sure has a habit of bringing you crashing back down to earth with a thud.

Got a lamp in need of a little TLC? Don't throw it out, upcycle it. A little elbow grease and some spray paint took this standard lamp from almost glam to a Victorian Gothic beauty.
