Siamese Twin Art Doll With Religious Theme


Sooooo creepy that I wish I could buy it to honor the artist, Ugly Shyla, of Ugly Art Dolls.
The centerpiece of the assemblage is two Siamese twins,with a embroidered white christening gown made from vintage cotton.The embroidery on the bottom is a faint blue/gray and their little bonnets are trimmed in cream and baby blue vintage lace.They are holding a paper that has a short poem on it.

They are mounted on a vintage red wooden frame with a cloth background,so it looked like they are coming out of the frame Alice Through The Looking Glass style.

The whole piece is 18 X 11 1/2 inches,and is made to hang on a wall.
Check out the creepy little religious poem on the note.

In His Heart The Wolf Was Planning Mischief


I don't think he had silly string or another prank in mind, so it's quite an understatement.

Heretic Hang-Ups

Until the weather cools off, you can just keep the Heretic Coat on a hanger -- but not in the closet; it's too cute and no one wants a closeted heretic.

Rubbing Me...

The white right way:


Botanical Wall Tile Collection by Heather Knight @ Element Clay Studio:
My new collection of botanically inspired textured tiles, Top Row: Turf, Hydrangea, Noni Bottom Row: Magnolia, Durian, Lichen

These tiles are made of Helios Porcelain, and coated with a fine white slip that gives the surface a smooth, super white, matte finish. Box type construction gives added dimension.

Each tile measures approximately 8-8.5" square, and has a key hole in the back for secure hanging on a screw.

Vintage Kolmer Blues

Vintage 40's Navy Blue Nipped Waist Suit Jacket of navy blue worsted wool, with an exaggerated collar which widens to the waist and is buttoned down with bound button holes -- and shoulder pads which do not look the 80's linebacker versions.

A Real Slice Of The 70s



The seller says:
This funky, vintage, citrus cool light fixture is in great condition. There’s a smidge here or there, and a tiny scuff from where it was set down when untethered from the ceiling, but other than that, in great shape.

12 white metal arms arch out from the white base, to support 12 plastic “slices of citrus fruit;” alternating orange slices and lemon slices. (Two of the arms are bent at such a slight angle, that I did not notice it until my eBay guru pointed it out to me. It DOES NOT DETRACT from the value, but I want to be very upfront about the item)

All the citrus slices are intact with no chips or cracks.

The still-attached tag on the inside of the base is marked:
