What goes into a good spell? Mugwort? Thyme? Bat Wool? Dragon’s Blood? Most witches know the first and best ingredient is your intentions. What are you trying to achieve? Focus on that. Your intention is what makes the spell powerful. The rest of the ingredients can come from your kitchen, your garden, the Apothecary down the street, it doesn’t matter where you get them, as long as your intentions are good. Remember, you get back what you put out. And don’t forget to write it all down for next time.
The theme this month is a Witches Halloween Spellbook.
Witch Cat by Joao Vagner inspires me to create some Halloween haiku with this month’s theme in mind.
A Lykoi is a domestic shorthaired cat with a natural mutation. Lykoi sometimes are partially hairless, particularly in the face, giving them a werewolf-like appearance, hence the the name Lykoi, which means wolf in Greek.
March is the month dedicated to legendary creatures, from leprechauns to fairies, the Dullahan to selkies, these legends, myths, and stories touch upon almost every aspect of our lives, as we draw strength, belief, love, and courage from these mystical beings.
Okay, well our theme this February is love and death, but this wallpaper taken from wallpaperup.com is too cute to pass up for Caturday.
I cannot find artist information for this one. I absolutely believe in giving credit to these talented human beings, so if you know who created this wallpaper, please send me an email at Halloweenkristy@gmail.com or comment below with a link.
Happy Halloween! This month we celebrate Halloween icons and the Black Cat is as synonymous with the holiday as the jack-o-lantern. Dark as night, cool, mysterious, irreverent guardians, it’s no wonder how they became so feared, blameful of calamity, and deemed witches’ familiars, cats simply appear to have their own agenda.
Happy October! All month along will be a celebration to Halloween Icons and I’m kicking off the official Halloween season with a tribute to the sassiest Halloween icon of them all, the black cat.
Say hello to my variation of a purple Martini, The Sweetest Black Cat, aptly named because of its sweet ingredients. If sweetness isn’t your thing, well, topping off with just a tad bit more vodka or ginger ale, to balance the flavors, oughta do the trick.
3 oz vodka 1 1/2 oz cranberry juice 1/2 oz blue curacao 1/2 oz sweet and sour mix 1/2 oz pomegranate grenadine 1/2 oz ginger ale (or 7-up/Sprite)
Please drink responsibily, don’t drink and drive, and have a safe and happy Halloween season!
At long last, our Halloween dreams are about to become reality. Halloween Dreams, that’s our theme this beautiful September, the first of the ‘Ber months. Stay tuned, as I will soon reveal the Halloween celebration plans, which includes the 3rd Annual Halloween Haiku Contest. Sharpen those pencils, I have really nice prizes to give away this year.
I wish everyone a joyous, memorable, fun-filled Halloween season!🎃🎃🎃
