Hullo from Reggie

Greetings and Salutations, Everyone! In this busy Halloween season, why not take a few relaxing moments and read the all-new noir series on "A Crow's Life"? ...

... starring me, of course, as a rather dashing sort of detective. Just click the link on the right (the big Crow's Life button, if you will) and see all sorts of daring escapades on my part for this month's series!

The Wizard of Oz Was Here ....

The Wizard of Oz is a book (and movie, of course) that weaves itself into almost everyone's childhood memories. On my own part, I watched the film countless times and owned no less than five VHS copies at the time; and read and re-read my threadbare 60's-era copy of Baum's original story.

The classic MGM film version of Baum's magical tale is celebrating 70 years of entertaining audiences this month, complete with a hi-def theater showing for lucky fans in some cities and a special dvd release for fans who prefer to celebrate at home.

In honor of this special anniversary, we've put thread and needle together to create a miniature version of his plucky little heroine a la Judy Garland.

Mini Dorothy is hand-sewn with a face drawn in soft colored pencils. Braided yarn hair is tied with tiny blue cloth ribbons to match her raggedy blue plaid skirt.

Her hand-painted Ruby slippers are trimmed with bows made from red metallic ribbons. Her wooden feet are secured to her Yellow Brick Road stand.

With tiny Toto in tow, she's off to the big annversary celebration ... catch more photos of her on Ebay this week by clicking the vanishing Cheshire Cat link on the right.

The Halloween Parade

Three grinning black cats in their matching hats march forth in search of Tricks or Treats.

Note their little paper-mache baskets, waiting to be filled with goodies ...

... and their mischevious grins beneath those pointed red hats.

See them in all their mischief HERE as part of the Old Farmhouse Gathering's Fall Celebration.

These talented artisans from Etsy and Ebay have a variety of fun and fanciful Halloween and Autumn items available for sale right now .... click this LINK to see the entire OFG Celebration collection on display!

Little Emily Ghost

Little Emily Ghost is having too much fun fooling everyone beneath an old raggedy sheet...

We revisited one of our favorites from our first Halloween on Ebay by recreating Emily Ghost -- this time with her own wooden stand instead of a little Trick-or-Treat bag for display. Emily's formerly startled expression is now a little bit more mischevious, but her blue starry pinafore is the same as ever.
