First Zombie up is Adair...
Reaching Her arm out Adair feels something cold. She tries to open her eyes but only sees a haze. An all consuming aroma fills her senses....she is hungry.

Adair Zombie $160 usd

Bonnie had dinner in her room alone again. She had no idea where her parents happened to be.
Bonnie has been spending quite a bit of time in solitude.
 As she sat eating her vegetables she thought she saw her bear grab a dinner roll. She looked up and the bear had eaten the whole thing, still with crumbs on her fur. She asked if the bear would like another...Yes and thank you replied the bear ;)

Bonnie Buttons $175.00 usd


She felt stiff as she opened her one eye. A shuffling sound came from the hall, people were sliding in a red syrup mess. She thought this must be a dream~why else was she moving so slow...
Kenna Zombie $ 160.00 usd


As Nora peered down the stairs the thought crossed her mind that she had seen movies like this before. Some Virus makes the dead arise and eat what is still alive. She never liked those kind of movies..

 Nora Zombie $160.00 usd


Tippy Bird was tired of her friends and they were tired of her obsession with birds. Actually her entire family has a bit of a problem. Her mother watches Birds her father hunts and the chef cooks the birds, her brother sketches Birds and Grandfather prefers taxidermy. But Tippy likes skulls and bird carcasses. She has the best collection in a trunk at the foot of her bed. ;)
Tippy Bird $175.00 usd

Days like today ;)

Its days like today when the leaves are blowing like snow outside my window and the birds hop from branch to branch that I was always told to enjoy. When I was a young girl I could not appreciate the stillness of the country, nor can my children now. In our youth we always yearned for excitement, fast moving cities with something to constantly see and do. I can't tell you how many times raising my children in this tiny 800 person town they have complained of being bored. But again in this tiny town they have experienced things that they could never anywhere else. The river and tubing down to another town. The rush of the water and the thrill wondering if you will make it over that boulder. Picking blackberries in the summer and eating most of them before you can get home. Climbing pear trees in the autumn driving up and down endless rows just to find the ones the ranch hands had left behind.
The creek in the spring, the water is icy cold and crystal clear. Walking barefoot over the smooth creek rocks till your feet are nearly frozen. 
I am thankful for where we live it's inconveniences and it's treasures. It has taken me many years to slow down and enjoy what is around me. ;)

Corpse Flower

They called her Corpse Flower. She was found in the woods a child sitting in her chair in her hiding spot. She looked as though she had just fallen asleep day dreaming. Her Chair covered in moss from years in the damp woods, her skin bluing but still well preserved.

She sat peacefully under the trees with her doll in her arms. 
At the time they did not know who she was, soon others would come to mourn their beloved daughter and friend. 

Corpse Flower

Corpse Flower will be available soon! Next Etsy Shop Update ;)

Gweneth thought she would skip the Holidays this year. It had been a rough year. She was sent to live with her Aunt Tilda in the city when her mother had disappeared  Aunt Tilda was odd and chanted every evening for an hour. Gweneth figured Aunt Tilda did not even know the Holidays were approaching..

Estele was the oldest of 4. The only girl she was treated as if she was the youngest. Her brothers had all gone away to school, but Estele was confined to the house. Company for her parents, dinner companion and social get together constant guest. Estele's only wish this year was to be seen for the young adult she was and not the pet her parents had kept her as.

Sad Sadie

Ghostly Lillian
Approx. 12" length

It was a night most of her friends did dream about. Romantic as they were they shared their most intimate wishes. Lillian shared no such desires for her betrothed was a burly belly of a man. Known for his favorite sport of fishing for which he did smell.
A cup of this tea her Mother did recommend and your night will be over before it begins....

$175.00 usd~SOLD

Ghostly Evan

Evan was cold not emotionally but physically. Cold chills and cold toes were her day to day. The doctors told her parents she should move to the south. Frivolous people they were too busy with their own life to take heed of the doctors prescription for their fragile daughters health.
Evans condition did worsen. As winter approached her breathing became labored; until the poor thing did wheeze all night puffing white breath into the cold air.
Suddenly no more puffs could be seen....

Ok! So here we Go!

Hansel and Gretel had once been normal children. Enjoying their simple life. When father remarried and evil selfish woman. Their new step mother had thought she came up with the most devious plot to rid herself finally of the children. 
One day after being berated by the step mother, father took Hansel and Gretel out to the woods for a walk. Gretel had overheard her evil stepmother the previous day. She had planned a little surprise for her Father and Step Mother. 
Gretel had taken Hansel to the woods and met with the old Witch who lived in the candy cottage. She made a bargain with her. A plump juicy step mother and a tired old man if she would change them to vampires. The old witch loved a good evil plan. She took them up on the offer. 

The children were quiet and most well behaved. They knew they had nothing to fear for Father had a surprise coming when he tried to leave them behind in the forest. Stepmothers surprise was coming later when Hansel and Gretel returned home that evening not with father but with the old Witch instead....

Daphne Skeleton masked Masquerade Doll
Daphne felt something amiss. Her senses were tingling as she walked out the door. Down the hall she could hear her neighbors fighting and the old cat screeched as it ran across her path.  Something compelled her to leave. She walked to the end of the street and saw a man selling masks. She quickly picked a beaded skull and put it on, it felt right; how she could not tell. Her troubles and cares appeared to vanish the moment its cold surface touched her skin. 
As she rounded the corner a powerful blast was heard and screams from the distance....She did not look back and did not remove the mask...She mused to herself that possibly the gas was left on and maybe the old cat had knocked over her oil lamp. Those neighbors were really getting on her nerves ;)

Rachel Skeleton masked doll

Rachel was thought to be a wonderful person. She was known to help her neighbors and volunteered at the Hospital. 
She was well loved by all. 

Rachel had an unknown motive for volunteering and helping out neighbors, she was intrigued by death. Rachel would make her way to help anyone in the hospital that was thought to be short on time. She befriended her neighbors and suddenly they became ill and needed her help even more. Death was a comfort to Rachel a friendly helping hand she would extend to many over the course of her existence.

The Twins Mab and Marisol 
conjoined Twins

The Twins were so shy and could not bear to leave their home. Marisol did all the talking and Mab had not spoke a word in years. Some wondered if she spoke at all. Marisol was the more dominant twin. She lead and decided what activities they would enjoy for the day. But what people didn't know was that Mab was actually leading Marisol. She whispered in her ear every step she should take. She did this without speaking a word. Marisol thought she may be going mad. But Mab was secretly amused.
