Salem Witch Bone Jar Decoration

The Salem Witch Trials, 1692

The seeds of the hysteria that afflicted Salem Village, Massachusetts were sown in January 1692 when a group of young girls began to display bizarre behavior. The tight-knit community was at a loss to explain the convulsive seizures, blasphemous screaming, and trance-like states that afflicted the youngsters. The physicians called in to examine the girls could find no natural cause of the disturbing behavior. If the source of the affliction was not attributable to a physical malady, the community reasoned that it must be the work of Satan. Witches had invaded Salem. (source and more reading)

Did you spot our Salem Witch Bones Jar in our

To all those  women witches of the past, we salute you.

Make Your Own Crystal Ball

"Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself "(source)

The origin of the crystal ball takes place in britain, 2000 BC. At that time, celtic tribes were unified by Druids. Druids were polytheist and revered nature. They had a very important role in these ancient celtic societies, as they were both priests, philosophers, scientists, teachers, judges and counsellors to the kings. Druids may have been the first people to use crystals in divination.

In the middle ages, many diviners and fortune tellers (seers, wizards, gypsies, sorcerers…) started to use crystals to see in the past and predict future, especially in Central Europe. At first, crystal balls were made of beryl, a naturally transparent gemstone. According to ancient beliefs, this gemstone was supposed to have specific powers. Later, beryl was replaced by rock crystal which is even more reflective and translucent. (source)

Our Crystal Ball is a fun addition to Halloween decorating or used as a Halloween prop at a party. 
  We added ours to our mantel and will soon be used in a Halloween party !

Sweet Dreams Essential Oil Blend

Is the excitement in the air of Halloween approaching keeping you awake at night? 
Are you like me and hear every little bump in the night and than have a hard time getting back to dreamland?

Whatever it may be that is affecting the quality of sleep, I have found essential oil really helps me to get a deeper sleep and stay asleep longer than I normally do. 

Not making any medical claims here, but I am happy to vouch for my personal experience since using our 
Sweet Dreams Essential Oil Blend

It worked and continues to work for me as I prefer this over any medications, and it may work for you also.

Graveyard Wreath

Did you know:  Victorian funeral customs and superstitions: 

Curtains would be drawn and clocks would be stopped at the time of death. Mirrors were covered with crape or veiling to prevent the deceased’s spirit from getting trapped in the looking glass.  A wreath of laurel, yew or boxwood tied with crape or black ribbons was hung on the front door to alert passersby that a death  had occurred. The body was watched over every minute until burial, hence the custom of “waking”. The wake also served as a safeguard from burying someone who was not dead, but in a coma.  Most wakes also lasted 3-4 days to allow relatives to arrive from far away. (source)

Our Graveyard Wreath  is not made from any of the above mention materials, as a matter of fact we upcycled it from how it use to look and gave it a more Gothic Halloween style!
