Halloween Is Afoot at Enchanticals

Hi, All! Halloween is in full swing at Enchanticals at Etsy. Lots of haunted and spooky creations.

Scared yet? Ha! there is more...

Now these two Angels have this tale to share with you…

“A Little Tale”…

Yep…there they are... the two Angels of Death…together…

One is the good one who takes you Home to Paradise and the other, well, he’s the evil one who drags his souls, begging, kicking and screaming, to the putrid, hot, overcrowded fires of Hell for eternity.

The two have known each other for eons. They aren’t friends because they have no interests in common, except one. Instead of waiting, as they should, at the death beads of the very sick or at accident scene to take the person’s soul when he/she dies, they hang out together at the cemetery, making small talk, telling jokes, and passing the time. They’re lazy. And, this laziness is what they have in common.

Both figure it’s stupid to chase around from location to location to get their souls and take them to their eternal destination, when they can just wait at the grave site
 and have the souls delivered to them, so to speak. But, if you think about it, they’re cruel, as well as lazy. 

The dead person can’t get free of his or her physical body without the Angel of Death taking their soul. Imagine how scary it is for that dead one…having to wait.* You’d expect that of the evil Angel of Death, but the good one? Ahh… the duality of nature…even within good and evil. Nonetheless, these two don’t care.

So, here they stand together again…Yin and Yang, good and evil…waiting for the next soul to arrive at the cemetery to see which one of them will get the new arrival.

I did a series of coffins and furniture based on the 7 Deadly Sins. This one is Greed.

There are plenty more.

 In fact, I have 5 haunted pieces ready to list. They will be listed this week.

Do stop by Enchanticals at Etsy. I'd love to see you.


Be Enchanted Always, Marsha
