Spies, Smokers & Scary Dolls

Hello Lovelies-

As promised, the new female spy illustrations are up in the shop! I am really excited about these ladies; dangerous, heartless and lovely they're a deadly combination. Here's a sample:
Also, I am in love with a shop on Etsy, and while I'm not a doll fan (I mean, who is NORMALLY?), I puffy heart the little beauties at Loopy Boopy. They're creepy and cute and look like you'd went them to be a pet, a child or maybe a nice monster under the bed and really, who am I to decide which?

As I sit here listening to Shania Twain's I Ain't No Quitter (does that mean she IS a quitter, and yes, I'm a longtime fan and YES it's a good song), I am in a strange mood, a mood that calls a lot of things into question. No, we're not getting political or deep here folks, I'm talking about some of the crazy junk I have up in the mill of course! Like this little lady:

Have you guys ever seen one of these? It's a Smoking Fiji from Japan back in the day and I have a couple. Why do I love them so much? Is it because they smoke and stereotype? Uh, yes and no, I just like the smoking. It puffs out like this little lady is actually enhaling! Nice, huh? Or at least interesting? 

Let me leave you with this random bit of news; did you hear about the alligator that ran up on a baseball field and attacked someone here recently? Now, I think they're okay, but I don't think that's what the coach meant when he said "go deep" folks. Until next time: unpleasant dreams.
