midnight at the mutter museum.

Leva-0945

happy halloween!

my love & i were married three years ago today. everyday i feel lucky to have found such a talented, funny & handsome man. we were married at the mutter museum here in philly & i'll always remember how we shared our night with so many friends and family as well as all the ghosts of those long past.

as part of my annual halloween / wedding anniversary celebration, i'm decided to give one mini planchette ring or necklace or if these frighten you, a 75$ gift certificate to anything in my shop to one lucky reader. i'm so grateful to have such kind & amazing (!!!) people read these ramblings and purchase my jewels. so thank you again & again for visiting me here, wearing bloodmilk or sending me nice letters.

I want to write you an elevator love letter. I follow you on tumblr and feel slightly bad about the amount of things I reblog, but if you're going to indulge my love of the most high DadaMax, then I offer no apologies, merely a fluttering of wings. Tell me who you haunt, and I'll tell you who you are.

Happy Anniversary, I wish you many wonderful, spooky, love filled years with your love.
My own soulmate and I have had our own ghostly encounters as well as odd experiences with spirits and I thought that the theme of this ring/necklace was so exceptionally fitting.
The craftsmanship of you jewelry is so beautiful i've admired and been infatuated with it since I first discovered your shop.

Happy Anniversary!!

lost teeth said...

"On Hallowmas Eve, ere ye boune to rest,
Ever beware that your couch be blest;
Sign it with cross and sain it with bread,
Sing the Ave and the Creed.
For on Hallowmas Eve, the Night Hag shall ride
And all her nine-fold sweeping on by Her side,
Whether the wind sing lowly or loud,
Stealing through moonshine or swathed in cloud.
He that dare sit in St. Swithin's Chair,
When the Night Hag wings the troubled air,
Questions three, when he speaks the spell,
He must ask and She must tell. "

xoxo!
