I've been rather distracted from reading much of late as we've been welcoming a new member to the family. Meet Edgar.
That moment when I opened #owlcrate and discovered a blanket with a beloved poem - the first poem I remember, read to me countless times by my grandmother before I knew how to read 🖤🖤🖤
I #believe that I will be able to complete my #resolution2020, which is to read two poems a week and one classic a month.
It is only after I started poetry that I realised how much I had missed it all these years. Poe took me back to college. I love it!! 🖤
I realize I‘m a day late but this is share-worthy.

I ended up being busy after work last night and totally forgot to post, but I did want to share this awesome lunchbox a friend of mine got me for my birthday a few weeks ago. I use it to store my markers. Poe looks especially depressed in this image.

Another #raven post for #ChillingPhotoChallenge. I love Edgar Allan Poe, and I have a lot of cards and various Poe related memorabilia. I have one more thing I will take a pic of and post later today when I‘ve returned home from work.

An obvious choice for #raven but it‘s one of the 3 Poe pieces I learned in middle school, and those have always stuck with me strongly. #chillingphotochallenge #scarathlon #teamstoker @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick
It‘s the season of the raven! 🖤
(These are crows, but 🤫)
Finished my Edgar Allen Poe summer piece! Thought some Edgar Allen Poe fans on here might like to see the light effect! I thought it was cool 🙃
I attended the Alaska State Fair yesterday and spotted this sign at the entrance. I‘ve never noticed these before, but they don‘t look new...
I just found this website called ‘Litographs‘ where they sell blankets printed with the entire text of books. How awesome?! This combines some of my favourite things: reading, being warm and lying down! The website is here: https://www.litographs.com/collections/blankets/products/raven-blanket
I really want this one!
I‘m just over here, planning my Halloween DIYs. I have always been a huge fan of The Raven, so I‘m thinking this is a must ♥️ #YearRoundHalloweenPlanning
1. White roses and blue raspberry orchids (the flowers I chose for our wedding)
2. I can't decide, I loved a few. The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, Birdbox and Thirteen Reasons Why.
3. Dark. It's on Netflix. It's this amazing German mystery that takes place in the 50s, 80s and present day. I watched the whole 1st season in one sitting and the second season just dropped last week.
4. Edgar Allen Poe

I‘ve been reading a lot of Poe and Lovecraft this week. All so, so good!
Pictured here is Nevermore which is macabre mix of cloves, midnight dreary, and vanilla. #bookishcandles
I collect bookmarks, and my favourites are those from indie bookshops. I took a chance after an Instagram post I saw, and sent a sase to the shop to request a bookmark. I have never done something like that! They sent these fantastic stickers too! I may never get to visit in person, but if you happen to be in Lawrence, Kansas, please stop in to support this amazing shop, and give the kitties a scratch for me! 📚🖤
I have major ornithophobia but it was hard to not admire this sculpture made of tires!!
On the bar...😂
