Paperbacks from HELL!

Wanted to share some pages from this amazing Paperbacks from HELL ~ The Twisted History of 70s and 80s Horror Fiction book I bought for my husbands birthday the other week. Each page is filled with wonderful horror paperback novels of two iconic decades. If you're a HORROR fan like most of us Spooky people, you'll love this book!

Little Outings and Stuff!

A few little outings lately...

Granpire essentials ~ her diary and Granny Goth bag. Glued on a black stone to make it look a bit more Dark Shadows! ⚰🖤

Spider bling shopping, this makes me extremely happy! I like attaching them to my fluffy coats, they look really elegant and I always get lovely compliments. 

I bought 4 brooches ~ 2 Spiders a Cobra and a beautiful Beetle! I adore Granny bling 🌟🖤

While out and about I had a hot chocolate that came with a beautiful Snake swirl, so perfect! 🐍🖤

I also did a bit of Op Shopping on a separate outing and bought this gorgeous little vase, which I plan to make a tiny Black Rose arrangement for @little.poison.garden I'll pop this one on my Big Cartel when it's done 🌹🖤

Found 3 Dracula's items, 2 shot glasses and a tall glass. So sad that Dracula's closed down in Melbourne. For those of you that don't know, Dracula's was a theatre restaurant. Unfortunately over the years, a lot of Goth shops and pretty much anything alternative has closed down, not much left for us Spooky people here in OZ! A couple of clubs still run but it's not the same as it used to be, oh how I miss those days!

Came across this Magical Needlework book which I thought was cute, even though I live on the Dark side

Saw this gorgeous Granny floral couch, so beautiful and only $40! I didn't buy it, as I already have 2 beautiful chairs that are very similar. 

Slowly morphing into Mrs.Slocombe and all the other Old Bats I adore! 🖤

Hot beverages and a relaxing afternoon in the country.

Dark Shadows Dress!

New 60s Dark Shadows dress that was gifted to me from one of my friends ~ it's a lovely red with cream lace and looks divine in real life, a but tight in the arms which made me laugh all day as it was a little restricting, but it was fine haha, they make these dresses tight in the arms.

The high neck collar needs adjusting as it flops a little but I can fix that. Such a beautiful dress and i'm so thankful my lovely friends gift me such treasures 🖤

This particular necklace has been with me for years, has an Opal type of stone setting, so Victorian Revival. I adore Opals, still searching for that perfect Opal Granny ring.

Lovely lace frills for that Dark Shadows look ~ favourite Gothic Vampire Soap opera.

I have quite a collection of 1960s and 1970s dresses, but always looking for more! I love this style so much 🖤🖤🖤

Black Old-Fashioned Roses, handmade by me. They look lovely in antique vases @little.poison.garden

Spiders!

Things that I find beautiful... SPIDERS! Yesterday we visited the Melbourne Museum with 2 of our dearest friends, it was a fun day out and originally we had planned to go to the Zoo for the day but we ended up at the Museum which was great. If you suffer from arachnophobia you might want to look away now, as for the Spider lovers out there like myself, here are some beautiful pictures of these fantastic 8 legged creatures 🖤🕷🕸
