Cyan Blue

Cyan Blue

Oh those crazy Victorians. Who else would keep poison in with the tea?
So, which way do you think the spirit will guide this hand?

Small Gnome


Father, Violette and 'Misty' marvel at the intricate detail of the small gnome that arrived today from England.
"Quite a gnome, eh Violette? This shall make a fine addition to my gnome collection!"

Aunt Lilith and Jo-Jo


Samhain has passed and now the dark half of the year decends upon us.

Aunt Lilith and Jo-Jo start the new year by guiding the spirits of the dead to a restful place and thinking of what presents to give for Yule.

(P.S. Dad, Jo-Jo is glad they stopped using a turnip as a Jack O Lantern and went with the bigger pumpkin. Fire is good!)

Violette's mother ponders the letter sent by Miss Downey. What could she possibly mean? Violette has always been the perfect daughter. There's only one thing to do...
Consult the Crystal Ball.

Return to Sender - Missing Postage

The other day I dropped off some mail. As I pulled up, hand out the window, a strange thought came to mind.

I wonder if there has ever been a case where someone got their hand stuck in the mailbox as they drove off?

So here's a little illustration of my quarky thought.

Drawn Together


I did this last night while watching Supernatural. It's been a long time since I used charcoal and now remember why. Black smudges everywhere!

Anyway, my flickr art group is called Drawn Together and this is what I came up with.

The Dead

The candles were lit
The words were read
Ceremonious by a grave site
They conjure the dead

The beginning of something creepy


Dear Mr and Mrs. Crowley,

I feel that it is my utmost duty to appraise each child under my guidance here at the Guiley School for Girls and thwart any behavior that may be detrimenal to a young girl.

Therefore, I must notify you that although Violette excels in her studies she seems to be on a frightful path toward unpleasant social etiquette.

Violette has made no effort to socialize with the other girls and I find her demeanor to be quite sallow.

I write this with no ill will but for the best outcome for Violette. And shall wait for a response letter from you.

Miss Downey
