A Postcard from Hell...

Now, dear readers, everybody already knows that Seraph + Splendor have (on occasion) wandered off to parts unknown to attend to some strange collection of calamities that have befallen our lives. Instead of trying to excuse our hellish hiatus in clear and concise English we will instead rely on a series of cryptic messages hidden in bottles, smoke signals and an odd (but highly lethal) form of ESP that requires one to wear a sun bonnet made out of aluminum foil to explain our recent whereabouts….HA! So if you have been feeling a bit dizzy or light headed as of late, we apologize profusely… 

In all seriousness (hee…) over the last several months we have locked ourselves away in a dim and murky wing of our Obsidian Hall known simply as THE STUDIO. If one knows where to look one might find a room full of stacks of velvet and caskets of trims as well as wisps of shadows and shards of glass. There are cabinets bursting with butterfly wings and tables heaped with skulls. Needles and pins litter the floor and the rasp of rusty scissors accompanies the sound of strange machinery well into the night. Indeed we have been hard at work preparing many strange and wondrous things for you… a new collection of cruel cushions, forbidden fruits and objects of oddity to delight the scenes and frighten away ghosts. Our new online shop will open its doors soon…hope to see you there!

Oh, Be Jebus. I thought youse 2 were MIA and I was about to send in the clowns, I mean rescue party. I am so happy that it was only a hiatus of massive and intense creativity that kept you from posting. I want to be one of the first to see this new online shoppe of magnificent horrors. I can only hope that you have some things affordable to a "government" worker here in the Heartland. Great to see you back, and just in time for all the hallowed evenings to come!

Of all the blogs I have subscribed to in the past year, yours is without a doubt my favourite! Your entries are a feast for the eyes and warming to my dark little heart! It makes me wish I had found you when I actually was living in Snohomish County! ;)

Utterly fantastic. Your blog makes me so very happy, makes me itch to fabricate a dark nest and find a soul to share it with. I love how personally you write, the corner of the web that you have carved for yourselves is a pleasant one indeed.

You have a loyal fan in me.

And also, your photography is beautiful! Ahh, love it all.
