Learn more about selkies and hear my short story about them in this episode.
Of all the sea-folk stories out there, selkies are my favorite. I love that so much of their tales blur into the real world, with humans. After researching selkies for Episode 19 of Fabled, I couldn’t help but seek out other sources of selkie entertainment.
Hope you enjoy this list of selkie books and movies!
People love strange historical objects, but one stands out from the typical collection of oddities—a tear catcher.
The Victorians are known for using lachrymatories or tear catchers. If there’s one thing Victorians knew how to do, it was to mourn. They had elaborate rituals they had to follow to properly show their dead loved ones how much they meant to them. Not only did they wear fancy black clothing, but they also couldn't attend certain social events during their mourning season. They had to dress and act in a way that was appropriate for someone who was mourning.
Happy Halloween! It's a beautiful fall day. My windows are open and the screen doors are allowing the cool breeze to fill the house. My favorite harvest Yankee Candle (affiliate link) is permeating every corner of the room with the sweet smell of autumn spices. I love this time of year for many reasons, but the warm colors and nice weather aren’t the only things that draw me in. I also enjoy spooky tales, stories including ghosts and ghouls.
