Samhain Tears

Lately I have been hiding from the world. 

I have been cleaning, playing, decorating... Whatever you can do at home. Some weeks ago I lost my last grandparent and it made me really depressed. My thoughts keep me awake at night and I don't really feel like seeing or talking to much anyone.


I like to dress how I feel so I'm thinking my outfit today was pretty spot on.


I'm slowly starting to feel better. It's just as a hypersensitive person, these things are hard for me.

Hat - Flea market
Top - Punk Rave, ebay
Brooch - The pumpkin coven
Corset - Dracula Clothing
Skirt - Spin doctor, Second hand
Shoes - Fantasy Shoes, Second hand


Yesterday though, I left home for a final Halloween round up. I just wanted to get it done with before Halloween 


From Sinooperi I got some candles, bottle labels and some spiderweb ribbon.


From H&M I got skull towels, bat towels and miscellaneous stuff. As well as a bat print dress. But I'm kinda having a hard time using it with anything since heavily printed clothes aren't usually my thing.


From Lidl I got these molds. Last year I got some similar stuff from them so I thought I would refill my collection. Coffin shaped cupcakes would be awsome..


From Lindex child department I got these adorable socks!


I even made myself to go to the flea market and I picked up these pumpkins and a candle holder.


I had already raided Tiger for Halloween stuff put I went again and got some stuff I forgot. The slime coffins are so cute! They are pretty hefty plastic and they have cool pattern on the side of them. I thought I would  make something cool out of them when I get bored of the slime.

I also have some pictures from our home for getting in to the mood of Halloween.




Don't you dare to laugh at my old tiny bedroom tv!


I don't really decorate for Samhain. I decorate for the whole year. It's just that around Samhain the amount of decorations multiply for obvious reason.


Sometime ago I changed my blog pictures a bit. Now you can click sideways pictures and you can see them bigger. Just if you want to see some details a bit better.

Hopefully I can gather my energies and celebrate Samhain properly. I hope everyone else is really enjoying the Fall season!

  7. Sorry for your loss. :( I always loved the look of Victorian mourning clothes and always thought their official mourning time was a wonderful way to honor a loved one. These days you're just supposed to move on with your life as soon as possible.

      I do love them too but I don't have too much appropriate clothing for it. But at least I managed to put together this which turned out fine.

    1. Joo on kyllä lisääntynyt mukavasti viime vuosina! Harmi vaan että se meinaa sitä että aina tähän aikaan lompakon sisällölle käy sama kun muille käy jouluna... :D Ja oi kiva! Se on kyllä tällä hetkellä mun lemppari lyhty! Varsinkin nyt kun sain sen roikkumaan. Nuo tuikut oon kyllä ihan täysin tainnut sivuuttaa muttä kuulostavat kyllä mahtavalta!

      Ja tosi ihana kuulla että postaukseni oli onnistunut vinkkaamaan ne lasit sinulle! ^w^
