I was at Yankee Candle the other only to discover the Halloween party is this coming Saturday! http://www.yankeecandle.com/statics/images/desktop/about_us/081116_Halloween.jpg According to the store associate I spoke with, they've got a lot of steam punk items in this year. They've got a few picture...

I am absolutely in love with this show. The opening titles alone make me feel like a kid again. I will definitely be watching it again come October. Can't wait for season 2! And yeah - they filmed all the laboratory scenes right here in Atlanta at Emory University (which I pass every day on my way t...

It's not been my experience. Some of the Boney Bunch pieces from Yankee Candle have bits of flocking on them and I've had them for years. It can get worn down over time, but it doesn't shed like glitter.

I didn't take any pictures... I did! At the Michael's I went to they seemed to be organized by a couple different color themes. One had a lot of metallics/gold and black, another was red and black, and there was also a more traditional black/orange/white combination. http://img.photobucket.com/albu...

I was pairing it with the Bride of Frankenstein I did last year and this one seemed to go with it a lot better than the other design.

I finally got my Versa this year and I was able to give away a few of my older foam pumpkins to make space for a new crop! Here's the first. This is my first time using the Versa. I managed to burn a couple of spots, but who's gonna see that at night? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v241/madamtors...

It was a great introduction for the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I'm looking forward to seeing him in Civil War (which is filming here in Atlanta RIGHT NOW!).

I had to make a stop by Michaels today for something decidedly un-Halloween and saw that they've got quite a bit of frankly awesome stuff: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v241/madamtorsion/halloween9_zpsf6xrs4lq.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v241/madamtorsion/halloween10_zpsk2wakd1a.jpg ht...

I hereby renew my begging for 12. And a TARDIS. 12 and a TARDIS. That I can carve on white pumpkins that I will paint blue.

Having been far too excited about the promo email I got last week (they really know their market), I headed over to Yankee Candle today to check out the new fall scents. I also got to chatting to the manager and she told me that the unveiling weekend for Boney Bunch this year is August 29, rather th...

Last weekend I had a bit of a get together with some friends. Rather than do a regular old Halloween party, I decided to have an outdoor screening of a couple of Halloween movies (Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus, to be specific). So I went to Walmart and bought a $4 sheet, borrowed a proj...
