Edward Gorey Tarot Cards



From the clever kids over at my favorite store, ETSY.  These cutie tarot cards would be great used for the purpose they are made, or perhaps scrapbooking, gift tags, framed up.  Oh the possibilities are endless!







The Edward Gorey Watch ~ Gashlycrumb Fun!


“If something doesn’t creep into a drawing that you’re not prepared for, you might as well not have drawn it.” Edward Gorey

On Facebook I’m a fan of the Edward Gorey House. On Tuesday they posted this coolio watch with the caption “Stay Tuned!”

If they make these, I’ve gotta have one!

Otto Farm Ghost Box Session at Antietam


Our area where we live is rich in history.  As you drive around you will see many signs marking various battlefields all over West Virginia and Maryland.   Antietam Battlefield is one we have visited often.  We’ve gone there to walk around and picnic many times over the years.  There is no doubt that it’s heavy in spirit due to the large amount of men, women and children that died in this area.

In this video taken at Antietam Battlefield in Maryland SAI captures a lot of ghostly voices taking about the battle, children, babies, death and hospitals.

Ouija Magic ~ Design Your Own Ouija Board


While I have not touched (with very good reason) a Ouija board for over 30 years, I do find them fascinating.  I shouldn’t say I haven’t touched one, we actually own a couple of antique boards that we use as decorations in my husbands office, but I don’t use them for any reason.

Here is an interesting site that has many boards to choose from or you can design your own!  Kind of a neat conversational gift for someone.  And please gentle readers… don’t use these for real, you never know what is going to come through that you won’t be able to un-do.

“This brightly coloured board has an unusual layout and has Art Deco, Celtic and Indian influences.

The board is constructed from medium density fibre board. The edges are bevelled and the entire board is painted black and finished with several layers of varnish. The base of the board is painted and varnished then has felt pads applied to protect the surface it is placed on.

The board comes complete with matching planchette made of medium density fibre board, it has bevelled edges and it is painted in colours to match the board’s design. It has a felt base so it glides easily over the board’s surface.”
