I found out about designers Sandi Falconer & Danielle Wright, also known as FalconWright, first via Victoire Boutique, an awesome Toronto shop I heard about through the sweet deals at Garmentory, and then again by way of Kinship Goods, a store in West Virginia. (Whew! Get all that?!) This was around late September/early October, and during the time when one starts to really get excited about the Fall and the spooky 10th month. FalconWright debuted their ‘Curses Collection,’ which featured pretzel-like snakes, all-seeing eyeballs, and Pac-man style ghosts. What really caught my eye, though, were the Witchboard & Zodiac printed pieces. I daydreamed about the vibrant blood red Ouija board pouch, and saw the zodiac signs at night in the stars! Imagine my delight yesterday when my sweet mama surprised me with this special package!
FalconWright had done a promo a couple of weeks ago that when one purchased any item, she’d automatically receive a free card holder in the Zodiac print! My mom took advantage of this deal to order me the Witchboard pouch (perfect for a deck of Tarot cards, no?), so I’d be able to enjoy both patterns I so loved. I couldn’t have a better mama! Several years ago, when I was an undergrad getting my degree in Art, I was working on a series in ceramics which included these deformed bats with butterfly wings. The porcelain one on the bottom right corner, named Beauregard, was even selected to be a part of that year’s Juried Student Show! I think that they, along with some cleansing rose incense, and my new witchy artifacts, have me all set to ward off any bad magic vibes!
