What could be more restorative when I’ve been feeling rather peevish this week than to learn that I’ve sold 50 greeting cards of this detail of Raphael’s Sistine Madonna! Well, it sure bucked my spirits up considerably.

And I’ve just created my first Christmas stocking with the same image.

Ok, so a skeleton is not a scarecrow, as mentioned in the little ditty below, but it’s as close as you’re going to get from me on this ghoul-infested date!

The Spook [1920]

The most horrible sight I ever saw
Was the soul of a scare-crow, gaunt and queer,
Made of Humor, the Shadow of straw
And a foolish notion of Fear.
by  James Francis Carlin MacDonnell (1881-1944)

From: Carlin, Francis, The Cairn of Stars, 1920, Henry Holt and Company: New York, p. 96.

May all your frights be little ones!

Take care and keep laughing!
