This page acts as a refresher for ‘The legend of Lenore’ more than anything but not just for the readers benefit but Sarah's too because it's important she now has Lenore and the Carlingford Curse on her mind again.

Out of interest I'm putting a link to the real shop that inspired me to create my own macabre shop. As I said last week this shop is in the grounds but not in the actual Mill itself as mine is. If you check out the collection there is some really weird stuff around page 4 onwards including a full human brain for £1500 or half of one for £900 depending on your budget!

Next week: Events for Sarah become more sinister as she becomes aware of Lenore's presence at the Mill!

Have a nice week ;)

Bit of an info dump here, but as said it's a useful refresher.

Thank you for the links to R/L shop. Hmmm . . . I guess R/L is creepier than fiction!

I like the detail in the illustrations of the shop e.g. Jumanji on the top shelf.

And the final frame is very dramatic.

Though of course it's not actually Lenore's spirit in the last frame, just some passing stranger getting her hippy vibe on with the barefoot look. Must be. Definitely.

@Fruitbat44: Haha Yea Lenore never really introduces herself in the proper sense so we can only surmise it could be her and not just some local peasant out for a stroll.

Ohhh awesome! Liking where this is going.
The last panel is creepy, I assume the witch is just following them around... I wonder whom her connection is to, I mean obviously Laura is the one who have been protected from her but if the witch is haunting the family name, then maybe Lucy?

@Linn: It really is just 3-4 pages now before Sarah works it all out so there's fun pages right around the corner for sure and then you'll have your answer ;)

And people made stuff like that out of Iron to keep the Fae away.

@MichaelHartman: Apparently they did, yes! Must have been interesting from the Blacksmith's point of view. Whether he had a small stock of blanks or had to make each one from a cast I've no idea.

Skye a link to more info on Witch Bottles, they are not something you play spin the bottle with though.
http://confessionsofcraftywitches.blogspot.com/2014/10/how-to-make-witch-bottle.html
Years ago I had a relationship with a woman who kept a witch bottle on every floor of her house basement included and the garage. Don't know if they worked or not but cops never raided her for the room full of pot plants she had in the basement.

@Dragonrider: That's very interesting. It's fascinating that people believed they worked but I guess somone sold them the idea and a few people gave enough credibility to them to convince others to place orders.

Ah, my suspicions were correct. Could Lenore's descendant be waiting for them outside? Very curious to see where this goes next.

Reply skyangel, July 25th, 2018, 5:18 pm

@kidcthulhu: Possibly. I could have made her semi-transparent but it felt too corny! ;)

Oooh creeeepy!!! Love it! The detail and effort you put into every frame is exquisite.

Reply skyangel, July 25th, 2018, 5:19 pm

@Lordcholmondlywarner: Thankyou :) I do enjoy doing those sort of panels and it's one of the reasons I fell behind on my weekly updating for a bit as it was taking more time to plan the panels and then draw them.

I had to go to a funeral in Essex (my cousin. Sad, so young. She was only 80. But then she was a heavy smoker.)

Woah, a sea of redheads. Straight and curly, every age from the pram to white-threads-in-the-red.

Their parents were Welsh mother and Irish father.

If you want redheaded models around Rayleigh, go to Halstead. They're mostly my second cousins.

The lamented deceased had three husbands, 11 children and I don't think her grands can be counted. A lot of them turned up. Some of them can't even speak English. They're all red.

@ohanyname!: I'm off to Halstead then :)
