Delightfully Dark Quotes: Emily Dickinson

Welcome to Little Gothic Horrors

I can't remember precisely when my preoccupation with all things paranormal began. I do know that it was triggered, very early on, by shows like The Addams Family, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Ghost Story, and the Hammer Horror movies. As I got older, I developed quite the hankering for horror. I carried out raids on my father's bookshelves and was introduced to Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, The Omen, Stephen King, H. P. Lovecraft, anthologies of vampire literature, and the macabre cartoons of Charles Addams. To this day, I remain as hopelessly smitten with the supernatural as ever.

My plan for this blog is to shamelessly indulge this obsession. My hope is that before long, my shadowy corner of the blogosphere will be chock-full of all manner of  supernatural, paranormal, science fiction, horror and/or gothic-y goodness.

Plus, this space gives me the opportunity to post updates on my soon-to-be-officially-opened Etsy shop, while also allowing me to shed a little light on some of the darker, less-perky outer reaches of the Etsy-verse.

Oh yes... and there are bound to be a few gratuitous cat pictures.
