6 Things Haunting Me This Week

Each Friday, I’m going to share spooky reads and products that are haunting me. Maybe it is an article I read that I cannot stop thinking about. Maybe it is something I cannot wait to purchase on payday. Please note, this post is 100% my recommendations. Products featured are not ads. I just really love them! 

Treats

The Folio Society, creators of crafted editions of your literary favorites, just released their Autumn Collection. My personal library is 80% anthologies of spooky short stories and BOY AM I IN TROUBLE. They released The Folio Anthology of Horror Stories. The cover and accompanying illustrations are just beautiful. Can I add this to my wedding registry?

So, I love whiskey and Halloween. Luckily, I found an Old Fashioned glass from World Market with a cute vintage cat and jack-o-lantern. You can get a pair of glasses for less than $10 (+shipping).

My usual Sunday morning is hot coffee, a good ghost book, and baked goods. One of my favorite autumn-inspired, Sunday morning breakfasts is Pumpkin Streusel Coffeecake from King Arthur Flour. There’s cinnamon filling, people.
