Anyone in the Mood for a Little Poe?

CT Nan coming at ya with some flashbacks from the Master....Poe that is!  Would it be the 31 days of Halloween without any of the dear Master's inspirations??  Not for me!  So I have used a fabulous digital element from Foxeysquirrel called "The Curse Splats"  that embodies several of Poe's masterpieces and it conveys the horror he could so masterfully portray with normal mundane words but so artfully put together as to scare one witless!  And with that I give you my "Ode to Poe"...


We bow humbly before thee, our dear departed Poe!  You know the drill so hop on off to the next name on the list to the right? or left? or under that floor board with that tiny crack??  Oh my, what fun it is to put suggestions in our minds!  Before signing off I will once again ask you to note this lovely pink hue and yes, darling, that is CT Anne wailing in the background but don't worry.  She is being kept....ahem...heavily sedated to help her through this trying time.  So don't worry those pretty heads one bit!  WE wouldn't lie to you, now would we????? Muwahahahahaha!

  3. We've changed colors for Christmas so
    why not make a change for Halloween.
    I was never a fan of reading Poe -
    not sure why - but I enjoy seeing his
    work.
    thanks for sharing.

    1. I never read any of Poe's work except school assigned and I groaned at that! I started reading more to enter Ike's Quoth the Raven Challenge (alas no longer with us) and found that his works that were more obscure were captivating! And the movie "The Raven" pulls you into his tragic life and you can't help but want to give him a hug :) I am thinking purple for Creepmas??? That will set Anne off for sure! xx

  6. I am sedated - "Take 3 pills" I was told, so I did. And it's raining, so if I go outside, I'll dissolve, because today I put on a black, grey and pink shirt. May the Ravens forgive me!

    1. Thanks for visiting us, Paula! Welcome! Alas my messy, inky time was not available so digital play came in very handy! I am not a good digital crafter like Kim and Granne, they rock it! But the image just screamed Poe to me :) xx
