Here is the card I sent out this year to my friends for Halloween. I got it at Pumpkinrot's site. I always get them there.
I put the cards inside a ziploc freezer bag with several cottonballs dowsed with my favorite autumn perfume that I wear every fall. CB I Hate Perfume is where I get all my scents. I've never seen anything like it. They make the most amazing and unusual mixes for people who are sentimental about their scents from the smell of grandpa's smoking pipe in an old library to wet mittens and fresh snow. This fragrance for fall that I use that is how I smell all autumn long is called "403 M3 November" pumpkin pie, fallen leaves, bonfire, woodsmoke, dried grass, fallen apples, wet branches, damp moss, chanterelle mushrooms, and pine forest. I let the damp cottonballs sit in the bag with the cards for a week so they can really absorb it.
Inside the blank cards I wrote this quote from the book "The Haunting of Hill House" by Shirley Jackson (my favorite horror novel of all time).
"I am like a small creature swallowed whole by a monster," she thought, " and the monster feels my tiny movements inside."
Consider this my Halloween card to you all. May the season give you at least a few chills and thrills. Okay, it's time for hot cider and some really good horror movies by candlelight now.
You are amazing!ReplyDelete
The CB I hate perfume site is awesome, and is exactly what I needed for a gift...
And I think tonight is a great night for horror movies by candlelight!
If you like 'different' perfumes, you should check out THESE!ReplyDelete
Kat; I seriously have yet to find one of the fragrances that doesn't smell amazing on me and in the past fragrances could turn sour or faint. This one, when your body heats up just one tiny drop of it--wow! I get ones to suit all the seasons. Eric-those scents are hi-larious!ReplyDelete
beutiful card i love it .. warr309ReplyDelete
Wow, you went all out! Have to be impressed by that perfume and the Pumpkinrot cards are works of art.ReplyDelete
I would guess that for most of us, this time of year is our time and so doing up the Halloween cards right--very important. I get a bigger kick out of spreading horror than spreading Yuletime greetings.ReplyDelete
That is one awesome Halloween card. Hell a nice big print of that would look great in the apartment. Also that Link that Bubba put up there I have found a display from them in Duane Reade stores and they have some crazy scents. One was called Dirt and another Funeral Parlor. Not sure why anyone would want to smell like that but might be a great addition to a costume. Maybe if someone is playing the Tall Man from Phantasm the funeral parlor scent would be ideal.ReplyDelete
SD77---tell me you're going out this Halloween, buddy. I want lots of pictures if you do!! I'm going out with a gal pal to a Halloween Ball. Gonna dress up as a steampunk ghost if I can fit into the corseted costume. hee heeReplyDelete
Smells good, tee hee. Awesome card. Happy Halloween to you too.ReplyDelete
The image on the card is amazing. I'll have to go and check out Pumpkinrot's site. Loved the quote from "The Haunting of Hill House", as well!ReplyDelete
