OCTOBER SPIRITS IN MY ROOM




ANNABELLE

SEEING GHOSTS



 OCTOBER SPIRITS LINGER IN MY ROOM ONLY BECAUSE IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR ....

"WHEN WITCHES GO RIDING, AND BLACK CATS ARE SEEN,

                      THE MOON LAUGHS AND WHISPERS ,

                      TIS NEAR HALLOWEEN"!


 AND IF THE SPIRIT IS WILLING WHICH MINE CERTAINLY IS, AUTUMN IS A PERFECT TIME TO SIT BY THE HEARTH WITH DELICIOUS TREATS AND SOME LOVELY SPIRITS IN A GLASS TO RID OF YOUR SHIVERING CHILLS WHILE WATCHING GHOSTS ON T.V.

ONE VERY LOVELY SPIRIT I LOVE IS CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA AND IF YOU COULD HAVE A NON-ADDITIVE VODKA, WHAT VODKA WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA WITHOUT QUESTION ....PURE VODKA LESS THE LEMONENE (USED IN BUG EXTERMINENTS) AND GLYCERIDE (USED IN ANTIFREEZE) FOUND IN OTHER VODKAS.

CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA WAS AWARDED GOLD IN RUSSIA..BEST TASTING OUT OF 400πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘€πŸΈ OTHER SPIRITS!

DAN AYKROYD AND JOHN ALEXANDER, THE ARTISTS WHO COLLABERATED IN THE ORIGINAL CREATION  OF CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA HAVE CREATED A FINE SPIRIT AND THE MOST RECENT ADDITION TO THEIR CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA  LINE IS THE "AURORA" . A BEAUTIFUL CRYSTAL SKULL BOTTLE IN AN IRRIDESCENT FINISH THAT MIMICKS THE AURORA.





A PERFECT SPIRIT, CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA "AURORA"  IS A DRY, CRISP, SWEET VANILLA TASTING VODKA. ITS NAME SAKE  COMMENORATES THE AURORA BOREALIS AND AURORA AUSTRALIS.




THE AURORA BOREALIS ( NORTHERN LIGHTS) AND AURORA AUSTRALIS ( SOUTHERN LIGHTS) ARE THE RESULT OF ELECTRONS COLLIDING WITH THE UPPER REACHES OF EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE. ( PROTONS CAUSE FAINT AND DIFFUSE AURORA, USUALLY NOT EASILY VISIBLE TO THE HUMAN EYE. )"

IT'S OTHERWORLDLY, MYSTICAL AND SPOOKY AND LUCKY ME HUBBY SURPRISED ME WITH ANOTHER CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA FOR MY COLLECTION ( WE ALREADY HAVE TWO UNOPENED)WE ARE KEEPING THEM FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS I.E. RETIREMENT ETC.



WITCHES


             




AND GHOSTLY WHITE CATS




                               WIRY SPIDERS





 AND SPARKLING WEBS



PUMPKINS



AND OLD HAUNTED TREES




WHEN YOU ENTER INSIDE THIS SPOOKY ROOM YOU KNOW THE OCTOBER SPIRITS HAVE CHECKED IN πŸ‘€





 SPIDER TABLE RUNNER I BOUGHT AT HOMESENSE







THE DIAMOND CRYSTAL VOTIVE CANDLE HOLDERS ARE  FROM PARYLITE BUT I GOT THEM FROM THE LOCAL THRIFT STORE. I DIDN'T LIKE THEIR ORIGINAL GOLD STANDS BUT I KNEW ONE DAY I WOULD FIND THEM A NEW HOME. WHEN I FOUND THIS HAUNTED TREE AT A GARAGE SALE MISSING IT'S TEA LITE HOLDERS I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WOULD USE IN THEIR PLACE. I AM STILL MISSING A  COUPLE TEA LITE HOLDERS.




MINIATURE PUMPKIN I MADE FROM VINTAGE FABRIC AND A REAL PUMPKIN STEM





LOOK CLOSER AND YOU WILL NOTICE THE CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA MINIATURES ON THE CABINET...EMPTY OF COURSE!







MORE SPIRITS HUBBY BOUGHT ... KILLIBINBIN  SCAREDY CAT AND LA CUVEE MYTHIQUE






I ALWAYS LOVED THE MOVIE "SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES AND SO I BOUGHT A GLASS CLOCHE FOR MY CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA. I LOVE THE LOOK OF THE PROFESSOR'S ATTIC LAB WITH ALL OF THE SPECIMENS AND CLOCHE GLASS JARS. I MUST COLLECT SOME MORE GLASS DOMES OF VARYING SIZES SINCE I HAVE MANY MORE SPECIMENS TO DISPLAY : )






I FOUND THE COOL SPIRIT BOOK BOTTLE AT AN ANTIQUE STORE . IT READS "HANDBOOK OF GAY SPIRITS , BY PROF. AL. KOHOL, UNABRIDGED DELIGHT". 

I LEFT IT BEHIND WHEN I FIRST SAW IT AND RETURNED THE VERY NEXT DAY TO BUY IT WHEN I THOUGHT HOW COOL IT WOULD LOOK NEXT TO MY CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA BOTTLE!!!




NOTICE THE BLACK VINTAGE GLASS JUG NEXT TO THE AURORA VODKA CRYSTAL HEAD SKULL? IT HAS A NAME WRITTEN ON IT , MAYBE IT BELONGS TO THE CRYSTAL HEAD IN THE DIORAMA?





ONE OF MY FAVOURITE COLORS IS TEAL AND THIS GLASS BALL GOES BEAUTIFULLY WITH THE VINTAGE SPIRIT BOTTLE, GLASSES AND GLASS MOSAIC VASE. 

OH, CAN'T FORGET ELLIOTT , MY WHITE GLASS GHOST CAT





ISN'T SHE LOVELY?
I BOUGHT HER AT CANADIAN TIRE A FEW YEARS BACK AND DRESSED HER IN A VINTAGE BLACK VELVET DRESS AND BLACK VELVET  HAT 






MY VINTAGE DOLL "LILY MUNSTER" AND A $1 SKULL I BOUGHT AT A GARAGE SALE. THE SKULL DID HAVE A BODY BUT I'M AFRAID HE WAS BEYOND REPAIR WITH THE EXCEPTION OF HIS SKULL SO I GOT MY HUSBAND TO SAW HIS HEAD OFF.
 MAYBE ONE DAY I WILL EMBELLISH HIM WITH CRYSTALS AND PEARLS AND MAKE HIM LOOK LIKE ONE- EYED WILLY





I'M SURE HE WILL NO DOUBT STAND OUT WHEN I PLACE HIM WITH THE CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA COLLECTION WE HAVE.






PUMPKIN CANDLESTICKS, A BLACK  PIANO AND  FRED ASTAIRE


I ADORE THIS PIANO, A BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM MY HUSBAND. I THINK HE ALWAYS FANCIED A MUSICAL GIRL WHO COULD PLAY THE PIANO AND THOUGHT MAYBE HE COULD ADD THAT TOO TO HIS BUCKET LIST : )

 I DID START OFF GOOD TEACHING MYSELF SOME BACH TUNES BUT AFTER A WHILE I WAS DRIVING EVERYBODY CRAZY BY PLAYING IN REPEAT I STOPPED.  I MUST GET BACK TO LEARNING SOME TUNES AND WHO KNOWS SOME OF MY BELOVED MUSICAL SPIRITS  LIKE VIC MIZZY, BACH, BERNARD HERRMANN, GLENN GOULD, MIGHT JUST DROP IN AND GUIDE ME IN A FEW LESSONS J. AFTER ALL IT IS A SPIRIT ROOM, RIGHT?




A DREAM OF MINE HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO LIVE IN A GOTHIC CHURCH BUT I GUESS FOR NOW I'LL HAVE TO SETTLE WITH AN ORIGINAL PAINTING OF A GORGEOUS CHURCH  WHICH FOR SOME REASON REMINDS ME OF  "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE" 




WITCH BOOTS CANDLE VOTIVES I BOUGHT AT HOMESENSE WITH A COOL VINTAGE POISON VESSEL PENDENT I BOUGHT AT SAINT VINCENT IN AYLMER , QUEBEC.






 THE BOOTS SIT ON AN OLD BOOK OF PROPER NAMES
"THE CENTURY CYCLOPEDIA OF NAMES" FIRST PUBLISHED IN 1889. 
I HAVE THE 1914 VERSION 





THE SPIRIT ROOM 2016

















MORE MINIATURE CRYSTAL HEAD VODKA BOTTLES




DIAMONDS, STARS AND MOON ?




COULD BE THE MOON,

WATCHING AND WAITING FOR THE OCTOBER SPIRITS TO ARRIVE

Starry, originally uploaded by Zsaj.

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

* ~ Twilight at Sea ~

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea


The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.

Amelia Coppuck Welby

This collage is part of a poem I am presently writing for a very good friend who just recently lost his spouse. ~ Annabelle
