Too Many Projects: Doodles #1 Alas, Poor Yorick

If you want to know what I do – as I have the last amount of blog posts, yet I blog from the main account – I’m just a behind-the-scenes kinda work. Nothing much. I just organize, correct, make changes, and be very lazy. On almost everything I do. I find myself working on things…

Cupcake Carnage

I have a confession to make – though I may scavenge a bit in my aviary fashion, I can get a little picky with my sweet treats. That is, I love vegan cupcakes. There, I said it. For my mother’s birthday I decided to make cupcakes because I thought that it would be cheaper than buying fancy…

Miss. Magpie Feeds Her Delusions: Let’s Talk About Books

Hello Dear Readers, I hope you are all having a spooktacular Halloweekend. This is my favourite time of year. I love when everyone is out on the streets in their finest. I was going to be a creepy doll with the outfit I reviewed in my last post, but my craftiness was short lived. So…

Shiny Baubles Aplenty: Bodyline Review

Hello, dear readers. You will not see a photo of the weather this post for I am in mourning. As of Canadian Thanksgiving, the weather here abruptly became a Winter Wonderland. I’ve not even carved a pumpkin yet and, as such, feel robbed of my lovely Autumn dreams. ;-; However, one must persevere – Northern Alberta…

Making Magic and Casserole…But Mostly Casserole

  October is finally upon us! I know I mentioned in my initial Autumnal post the special feelings I have for the month’s celebrations but first, can we appreciate the month of September with a quick picture post? This past month, I started trying to decorate my house for Halloween (hence the cobweb tablecloth), but…

Jewel and Bone

For all of us travel alone on bridges made of jewel and bone.-paraphrased from James Reese’s The Book of Shadows Life has not been going according to plan for Miss Magpie…not that life regularly does for anyone, but hopefully that explains the gaps in my posts. You see, my job has been functioning on a contract…

I’m Currently Drinking Tea

  Usually, Magpie has been the one throwing down these actual lifestyle posts on this lifestyle(?) blog(?) – that’s not the matter right now. The matter right now is what am I drinking right now? It’s jasmine-scented tea. It’ll probably always be jasmine-scented tea. Fun fact, my father works as a department head for a small manufacturer of thermocouples…

1.1 Benny’s

This story contains scenes of violence, strong language, and uncomfortable situations. Please be advised. His desk’s just a giant pile of garbage. Paper everywhere: scrunched up, ripped apart, scribbled over. A pair of scissors thrown on top – left from a time he was so excited to open up his newest Japanese toy, that he decided…

The Crepes of Wrath

Food has played a significant role in human celebrations of all kinds. In earlier times, the Earth and its bounty were connected with goddesses and gods. Fruit, seed, root, and flower were all manifestations of divinity. As we’ve lost the knowledge of old magics, so too have we forgotten the mystic lore of food. But…

Cranberries and Cobwebs

In this place the calendar is merely a suggestion. Autumn arrives mid-August – tinging the leaves of trees with yellow. It compliments the moon which (as of late) has been like a topaz jewel in the sky. Soon the world will be full of gold and contrasted by the brush underneath that turns a violent…

Of course there’s an introduction

Why wouldn’t there be… I’ve got the grand proposal: an introduction to an idea. I’ve typed this up once or twice – never got anywhere, couldn’t think of what to say – but that doesn’t matter now. What matters is that there is a reader and this person of importance wants to know what this whole blog is…
