So, we have already established that Halloween isn't my favorite holiday... ...But I do love to decorate and change my little vignettes according to the season.... I guess it's because I'm such a book lover...collecting them not only for content but for color and decorative appeal as well... ...that it was only a matter of time before I started collecting scary titles for Halloween props. (click image to read the titles!)
Look at this spooky set of Edgar Allan Poe volumes...
You have to love this title!
Some old tin types provide rather ghostly images...
Scarlet Sister Mary.....what can that be about?
Now these two books are seriously scary....especially for a good Christian girl... ...this fraidycat won't be reading these anytime soon...
Maybe I should put some of the beautiful religious medals found in those cigar boxes with these books to provide a little balance!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
