Things That Go Boo in the Night

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

Traditional Scottish Prayer
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go Boo in the night,
Bring 'em on!

Traditional Cornerstoregoddess Philosophy 

Boo is a friendly little guy.  You can tell by his toothy grin.  He's made of lampwork glass, created in Colorado at Silver Leaf Glass.  He is set off with sterling silver daisies and a  Swarovski crystal.   He dangles beneath a fire polish crystal.

His chain is handmade, as well, with fire polish crystals of orange and black wire-wrapped with sterling silver, onto sterling silver chain.  It closes with a Bali silver toggle clasp.

The chain is approximately 24" (60.96 cm) in length.  The Boo pendant drops approximately 1-1/2" 3.81 cm).

Boo Monster necklace is available in my etsy shop.

Just the Candy Corn Facts, Ma'am

  • October 30th is National Candy Corn Day 

  • One serving of candy corn contains only about 140 calories 
  • Candy corn has 3.57 calories per kernel 
  • More than 35 million pounds of candy corn will be produced this year. That equates to nearly 9 billion pieces -- enough to circle the moon nearly four times if laid end-to-end. 

  • Halloween accounts for 75% of the annual candy corn production 
  • A cup of candy corn has fewer calories than a cup of raisins. 
  • Candy Corn was invented by George Renninger and produced by the Wunderlee Candy Company in the  1880's. In 1900, the Goelitz Candy Company, now  Jelly Belly Candy Company, started mass producing the candy, but, due to the lack of machinery, it was only made available seasonally from March to November. Its recipe has remained unchanged. 
  • Candy corn isn't just for Halloween there is also:
    • Reindeer corn for Christmas (red, green, and white)
    • Indian corn (it's chocolate and vanilla flavored)
    • Cupid corn for Valentine's Day (red, pink, and white)
    • Bunny corn for Easter (pastel-colored)

    • Candy corn bracelets and necklaces can be found in my eBay and etsy shops.
