Snips and Snails

[Snips and Snails - 28542]
Mingling smells of acrid smoke, rotten eggs, and burnt hair permeate this enclosed shack. Nestled into a small hearth at one end of the room is a huge cauldron, the ceiling above stained black with soot. Pushed into one corner is a scarred wooden work table, a stool sitting askew in front of it, while a long battered wooden shelf is mounted directly above it. A warped metal cabinet with corroded acid stains marring the front, the interior filled with wares, takes up almost the entire back wall. Leading out to a cramped backyard, A discolored wooden door, its surface littered with a plethora of pinned papers covered in cramped handwriting.

a scribbled note
These concoctions have had the concentrated power of the moon and the sun imbued in them. They seem to be the only thing that can affect my poor cursed puppies. The other items are various toys I've found that the puppies enjoy, each one of them prepared to allow even ghostly puppies to interact with them fully.
