“You seek knowledge of the netherworld… I can show you.” “You seek the warrior bathed in blood… the Headless Horseman…”
Sleepy Hollow is my all time favorite Halloween movie, and you know I love my spooky movies, so that is saying a lot! It is the first movie I break out every spooky season, and this isn’t the first time I’ve plundered it for inspiration.
My little Witch of the Western Woods has thus far escaped decapitation by the Horseman and her evil twin sister—perhaps she will be of help to you and your servant with her knowledge of all things dark and creepy. Adopt her from my shop now.
No secret where I got my inspiration for this girl—my favorite vintage Beistle Halloween paper decoration of a witch being pulled in a cart by her giant black cat, off to make mischief in the moonlight! You can hear her cackling away as she celebrates the spooky season. Bea is available for adoption in my shop!
Did you know that there are mermaids in the Detroit River?
It’s true! You never know when you might sight a beautiful mythical creature in our river, tantalizing sailors from Canada, the U.S. and beyond.
But, Pirate, Beware! Our siren does not trouble peaceful sailors, but marauding pirates take heed! Yemaya will lure you with her beauty, and then capture your ship and walk you off the gangplank! If you need your own sea siren, she’s available for adoption now in my shop!
With the apocalypse seeming closer every day, I’ve dipped again into the world of Mad Max for inspiration again. Drought, warfare, fires, pollution, age old hatreds……we few who care can try to save the world, but in the end we must find a way to simply survive it. The Vuvalini are among my favorite characters from Fury Road—–where older women are so often dismissed in our current culture, the film portrays them as cagey survivors, whose knowledge, experience, and total bad ass skills and attitudes are respected and needed by the younger women, as all band together to quite literally smash the patriarchy.
My talented friend Elizabeth of Dolliteful made a great video of herself assembling my hutch kit. I love the way her hutch turned out, and the video is a great quick tutorial for building your own, especially if you are extra extra. 😉 Kits are available in my shop!
