Do you need a hand with keeping your drinks cold? The 3D Zombie Ice Mold creates a chilling visual that will liven up any meal or party.
This flexible silicone tray transforms water into a standing, detailed ice sculpture that resembles the grasping hand of a zombie. Add a little green food coloring for that recently-dead look that everyone is sure to enjoy when they put their mouth to the glass.
Another bridging of the holiday seasons as Christmas lights are put to a new task in the Halloween season.

A short and simple video from a bibliophile (like me) who offers some of her favorite books that have a Halloween vibe to them. Her selection is pretty good with a few that some might not expect.

WARNING: If you have little kids around, the language in the video is PG-13 at times (people can’t control themselves when they get scared.) So make sure they aren’t around when you watch this.
My blog is becoming like a demented Martha Stewart site. I ran across another recipe in the YouTube archives. The cupcakes are designed to look like hearts, and of course you bite into them it looks like they are bleeding.
