Kooky crafting day

dolls heads What to do on an autumn day but craft with a good friend who shares your interest in the weird and wonderful. When you love mooch around your friend's book shelves and treasures. 

I came home with a list of folklore, church and graveyard books. Lovely. 

Also lots of ideas for crafting as my good friend is very talented and makes models from papier mâché. There is a style that I know as being called primitive folk art and when I mentioned it, my friend produced a magazine full of that style.

Candles flickered, we had warming soup and some Halloween cakes, what could be better. Edward Gorey illustration witches tea towel
