Hello again. Welcome back, it’s nice to see you again I’m back officially, from my break. It was nice to have a break. It was strange because I had to keep reminding myself that it was okay and I didn’t have any deadlines to worry about. I also felt a lot of guilt but it was nice. Once I got into the habit of not trying to check my messages all the time. It was also really nice to just be.
At the same time…after week one I felt ready to get back to it but I thought, since I had embarked upon actually taking time off, from all blogging, every single store/event, I should stick to it. While I was off on said break I couldn’t help but do one thing and it was something I had been meaning to get to for the lonest time. I’m sure you’ve noticed but the site layout was updated. I’m still tweaking things here and there to fit my blog but for the most part it is 95% and I’m happy with it.
Another thing I’m sure you know, is that Salem is now open.
Salem is one of the best places to stop by for your Halloween shopping needs this October, from the astmosphere to all the cool things on sale. It will put you right in the mood for shopping for your outfit for All Hallows Eve. You’ll definately need something to stand out from all the rest.
Today’s post features items from Salem. I wanted to focus on the furniture/decor items for my first post and so I tried to make something dark and mysterious. The lecturn and stools by Random Matter are so beautiful that if this were carved in real life I could spend ages just running my fingers all over the lovely shape of it. It’s so gorgeous. I loved the fact that the sofa by Chez Moi had a little kitty too, it’s adorable in it’s little cape and hat. I melt just thinking about it.
The collection of different items around the sofa are each intriguing in their own way.
You wouldn’t think there was more that could be done with pumpkins for example and yet the texture on these pumpkins are so good! You’ll still want to add them to your already large collection. I’m sure of it. I even added some items from Half Deer’s collection of Halloween themed creations. I also might be responsible for trapping the skeleton cat under the cage.
Okay, so I definately am.
