Halloween Folk Art Painting Black Cats and Spider in a Green Witch Mask

Well, that title is certainly long enough.

This is a brand new painting I just listed in my Etsy shop, WhimsyArts.

It's cute and spooky and a lot of fun. Plus I coated the sides in black German Glass Glitter (my fav) and the spider's body in purple German Glass Glitter. Comes ready to hang. Hope you enjoy this charming little scene!

Enchanted peacock

A new mini top hat for your consideration.
Did you know that peacocks were kept as pets during the Victorian Era?
This hat features a real peacock "eye" feather, black scroll braid around the brim and crown, green forest hat band, black rosette on the front and black silk rose on the back.
Lovely for Victorian costuming, Gothic club wear, burlesque, fetish, saloon or can-can girl, or even everyday wear!

New at Chenille Macabre- Banshee Mini!

...Her unearthly scream almost can be heard as she haunts your nearest bog or cubicle! Click here for more photos!

New @ Static White's Stitchery: Not-Sock Zombie Monkey!

Meet Remmie, Remmie say hello to everyone...


He's almost a foot tall and definitely well fed. There's lots of hand stitching on this one: entire face, ribs, stumps and bone nubs! There's also wire in the tail for extra strength tail hanging.

Come and get him if you dare!

First Set of Mock Puppets, more to come...

I proud to be a member of Etsy's Dark Side. I'm KittyKatSue on Etsy. The DarkSide seems to be very motivated to help their members get exposure.
I wish Etsy would give us Art Doll folks a category. For Collectables, not toys.
Look for more of these M.Puppets to come.

Vampyr Oil

Being my first post, I just wanted thank you all for welcoming me to the Dark Side. ;)

Here is just one of my favorite perfume oils.

Vampyr Oil ~ A deep Merlot sweetened by Raspberry, Blueberry and just a hint of the darkest Blackberry. A potent oil made with skin loving oils which absorb quickly, perfect for scenting and softening your skin and hair. Wear as perfume or cologne. Add a few drops in a warm bath for a sensory experience, or one of our oil warmers. 10 Ml glass amber bottles with a reducer, allowing oil to be applied by the drop. Packaged in a black organza bag.

Treasury West...Etsy's Dark Side

I waited and waited...oh so patiently...and snagged a Treasury. About half way through my selections...I suddenly got a 'connecting' icon...from the Treasury itself. Oh my gosh...I lost everything...INCLUDING the Treasury.
Not one to give up....I waited another hour...(it is 4:30 a.m.) but I got a Treasury in Treasury West. It is called....Etsy's Dark Side.
If you have a free moment or two...head on over and maybe even leave a comment.

The Treasury is no longer available....thanks to all who visited and left comments!

Black Cat and Raven Mystical Magickal Print

This is a print I'm listing on Etsy under my seller ID Whimsyarts. The original painting was a watercolor/ink creation and the print is 8" x 10" with a border for framing.
Whereas the cat represents mystery, magic and independence and the raven represents magic and creation, I think they're a natural couple under the light of the Moon Goddess.
I'll be listing more wicca and totem art in the near future.

Expanding beyond paintings and prints.

I have been moving my studio for almost a month now...and I'm still not completely done. So, in the meantime, I decided I would try a couple of new things. One being, to design and create a Rustic Goth art doll based on my characters.

Here is my first attempt...I'll keep her in my collection...there are some kinks I need to work out before I can offer any in my shop. And the photo I got of her is not very good, but it does give an idea what she looks like.
I've got a few more heads ready for their bodies...I'm hoping I can actually have one listed in a week or two.

Item Reviews!!

Stuffed Stuff For Static White's Stitchery!

A summary and review of two spooktacular purchases on etsy!

The first was a custom doll from The Poisoned Apple!

The doll was custom designed from a picture and written requests. It only took a week to create which is exactly what I was told by the seller when I placed the order. Shipping was quick and the doll was so well packaged I had to wrestle it out of all the bubble wrap! In my opinion she doesn't charge nearly enough for these hand painted and hand sewn creations. It is exactly what I wanted and I will definitely be buying from her again!

The second order was from Custom Cranium!

This little guy was everything I'd hoped he would be from the pictures in the listing! As the description said, " Fluffiest SnuffStuffy EVAR!" I got quite a deal considering this item was handmade with stuffed animals and professionally cleaned animal skull, not to mention the custom etched shot glass with a drawing of Florian and the shop name that was an extra little gift from the seller. Sent via Priority mail and packaged with lots of padding around the dolls skull, you can tell this seller takes great strides to send everything so that it arrives flawless and in a timely manner.

This are both of my stuffed pretties in there new home!

Sad Robot

Once they've killed us all, the robots will miss us. They need people because they have no hearts, but they won't know it until too late.

Poor sad robot, with his poor sad broken heart. Won't you give him a home? He's made of felt, not metal.

New at Chenille Macabre- Chimaera figure!

Vicious, ferocious, and multi-headed, the Chimaera figure devours anything and everything in its path! He's enormous- 15" to 17" long, depending on which head you measure from- with a wingspan over a foot in length! Check out his Etsy page for more photos!

New at!

New in my shop!Silkscreened tote bags featuring BATCAT!
Stash this lightweight cotton bag in your purse and say no to plastic bags! Its perfect for picking up a few groceries or carrying books. After a while you will wonder how you lived without one. Plus it makes being green look cute.
I also offer a heavier weight bag for those BIG shopping trips.

Arsenic is historically the poison of choice for many murders, in reality and in fiction. It’s impossible not to think about the Brewster sisters (Aunt Evie and Aunt Martha), while they were using it for “one of her charity works”.

If you are a fan of old time murder stories, this is a must for you!

Enjoy it hanging on a cord, your favorite chain, as cell phone charm or as keyring.

Only at Kaleidoskopic Romance!
