Which Witch Are You?

Which kind of witch are you? A good witch or a bad witch?

I love the beautiful orange color of this image, the serious black cat and the playful text which reads,

Are you a good witch
or a bad witch?
Which witch are you?

I went looking for a bit of information about the artist, Lisa Hilliker, and discovered that she lives in Northern Vermont. She has been an artist since she was a child and was lucky enough to be surrounded by artistic people including her mother, grandmother and a very talented  middle school teacher. 

Ms. Hilliker says that she is inspired by her natural surroundings and by old barns, both of which she often incorporates into her artwork.  When she comes up with an idea, she picks out a barn board and prepares it by sanding it and then painting it with a base coat of paint.  She creates the image, antiques it and finally varnishes it. 

She has a studio at home in Vermont with her cat for company.  I have no idea if her cat is a black cat like the one in this image but nevertheless I love the Halloween-themed image.

What do you think?
And which witch are you?

Yankee Candle Witches Brew

Intrigued I am by the idea of a Yankee Candle called Witches' Brew.  Yankee Candle says that this scent is relaxing, uplifting, and soothing.

As with every Yankee Candle, each jar provides many, many hours of bewitching scent.

Yankee Candle describes Witches' Brew as both spicy and sweet. It features patchouli, which according to Wikipedia is a bushy mint plant that has a strong, heavy scent. Patchouli is also used in some incense, insect repellents and alternative medicine formulas

Fans of Yankee Candle's Witches brew buy it over and over again, wish it was available all year long and praise it because it is a fall-themed candle that does NOT smell like pumpkin or cinnamon. 

Do you think Witches' Brew is for you? And what would you have thought Witches' Brew would smell like?

Happy Haunting!

Warm Bodies: A Zombie Love Story (2013)

A long time ago, when I first heard of Warm Bodies, I really wanted to see it but then came the local reviews, and we chose to let it pass at the movie theatre. However, this weekend my husband brought this zombie love story home to watch and we settled in and watched it.

It was a movie for zombie fans particularly aimed at young zombie fans, I think. It was entertaining and it had funny moments but I also found it slightly odd. How could a zombie love story be anything but odd? How could zombies exist in different states of dead? Not our ordinary way of thinking about zombies but then, given the subject matter, there really is no limit to the twists one could put in a movie about zombies.

It was cute though and I think Common Sense Media summed it up fairly nicely, although they may have liked it more than I did, when they said, "WARM BODIES is part Romeo and Juliet love story, part Shaun of the Dead biting comedy. It's funny, contemplative, and sweetly romantic"

The movie is rated PG-13 and there was some zombie violence and some language.

If you like zombie movies and try to catch them all, I'll recommend this one. If you aren't interested in zombie movies normally, I'd say pass.

Happy Haunting!

Zombie lovers beware...there's a new coffee mug in town.

We love this new mug, which reads, "Zombie Serum...It Brings Me Back To Life" because, as all coffee lovers know, that is what coffee does to us.

It would be perfect for use at Halloween and all year long for true zombie fans, don't you think?
