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.

Treats

I just came across a new (to me) spooky candle company: Werther & Gray. I am especially in awe of their packaging. I cannot wait to get a hold of my first candle!

One of the first Halloween purchases I’ve made this season was this ghost mug from Pottery Barn. Good quality, decent price, cute ghost face.

If you are in the market for a new tarot deck, might I recommend The Marigold Tarot? The skeleton imagery is simply breathtaking. I was able to get my hands on the gold gilded deck, but it’s sold out! You can wait until the restock or buy the Classic deck.
