Witchy News: A Witch Bottle Was Discovered in Virginia

I have an obsession with buried things. The idea of a found thing long since forgotten. Discovering treasures that have soaked into the soil and become one with the earth.

But the crazy history, mystery, and magic that surrounds witches has always fascinated me. I have a special announcement today… There will be a new blog series here at The Midnight Society, written by moi. Announcing: Exploring the Cauldron! In 2016, I plan to set out on a new journey that I have been wanting to take for quite some time. For Exploring the Cauldron, I plan to inquisitively and respectfully explor[...]
