Tattoo Tights!

One of my Facebook friends just shared this nifty tattoo design tights project from Urban Threads and I figured I'd pass it on.

Now I just need to figure out what I want to make. There's a temptation to use Hirschfeld's drawing of Groucho Marx, so I could have my not-so-sekret crush stealing a peek up my skirt. *laughs*

Another round of treasury inclusions!

I wish that I had more time to make Etsy treasuries. I was able to do a whole lot more when I was out of work last winter, but my time gets eaten up quickly these day. I am incredibly grateful to those folks who do find the time to do treasuries and are kind enough to include my work, though.
Here are some of the awesome treasuries that I've been included in over the last few weeks:

Holy Hill Art and Farm Market

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit with Kristine Jacklin at her family’s homestead farm in Hubertus, Wisconsin and I have to say…it’s a REALLY lovely spot. The 160 year old Loosen family farm will be the site of the inaugural year of the Holy Hill Art and Farm Market on the weekends of September 17th-18th and October 15th -16th.
I won’t be vending at the September event, but I’ll be coming up to check out the market. I’m SO excited about vending at the October market! I have all sorts of morbid little treasures, just in time for Halloween.
Kris asked me to share the message below about the market weekends with all of you:
Hi All!
Our super short summer was wonderful, sorry to see it go! But, with the cooler weather and fall season, there are so many beautiful days and nature’s gifts yet to be enjoyed! And with the cooler weather, Fall events are in full swing. Here is one I’d like to share.
It is easy to get to, just 1.2 miles west of Hwy 164, on Hwy 167 in Hubertus, Wisconsin or 2 miles East of the Holy Hill Basilica.
You will love this 160 year old family homestead with all its beautiful vistas in the heart of very scenic hills and valleys. Come for the Art, stay for the delicious hot foods and fresh farm produce. Enjoy live music and a hot cup of special blend coffee while browsing the grounds.

Unfortunately, I don't know who drew this, but the idea of Jules Verne fanboying Edgar Allan Poe had me in stitches. This needed to be shared. If you know who the artist is, please share and I'll happily credit them.

Edit: As posted below, this came from the webcomic Hark, A Vagrant.
