The Outlander Apothecary

Posted in TV with tags , on July 3, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve never seen the Starz series Outlander so I can’t attest to its quality…but I CAN fawn over these apothecary still frames which are unbelievably awesome.


This is everything I love about the apothecary aesthetic (is that even a thing? It is to me). I’ve been oddly fixated on painting a room in my house teal lately, and this isn’t helping.



Do watch Outlander? Is it worth seeing?

I couldn’t choose which link to post…so have a bunch!

What those dead bird holiday cards I posted the other day actually mean.

Giant Paper Snowflakes

Gorgeous Digital Snowflakes

Most of the pics in this post require no comment…but don’t skip this androgynous, anthropomorphic pothead (see what I did there?). I find its lean, wiry body very disconcerting.


80’s Christmas Horror Movies

Fellow horror fans…I confess I felt remiss in my duties when I discovered there were a number of 80’s Christmas Horror Movies I haven’t seen. A kind reader sent me this list.

Luckily, 80’s Horror has compiled a nice list of every Christmas horror movie made in the decade. How many have you seen?

They also note two awesome TV episodes (which were staples of my childhood): Tales from the Darkside- Seasons of Belief


And Tales from the Crypt- And All Through the House

Check out 80’s Christmas Horror Movies.

Halloween Countdown: Vincent the Vegetable Vampire

I urge you to drop everything and watch the inimitable Morgan Freeman in the role of a vegetarian vampire (he starred in The Electric Company 45 years ago). Within 10 seconds, you’ll realize the combination deadpan delivery and exaggerated vaudevillian charm is nearly impossible to describe…but utterly fantastic.

I’ve actually never seen this show. Has anyone watched it?

Halloween Countdown: When Gothic Was Born

Posted in halloween, horror, TV with tags , , on October 22, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I meant to watch this as part of my Halloween season last year, but never got to it. There were a bunch of free full episodes on the BBC website, but when I attempted to play them I got an error message stating that the content is unavailable in my country.

Has anyone seen this series?

Twilight Zone Doorway Decal

Posted in decoration, home, sci-fi, TV with tags , , , on July 8, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Would you like your home to contain a 5th dimension beyond that which is known to man? A dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity? A middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, that lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge?

Well, you’re in luck. This “life size” Twilight Zone wall decal contains the iconic (eyeconic?) eye and clock from the opening credit sequence, floating in the endless vastness of space.

I’m tempted. Oh yes.
