Mysterious Girls from The Black Apple - Kitten Bandit Print 8x10
Kitten Bandit

This is as spooky as you're gonna get
this halloween at Hello Lovely.
No time for bats or masqueraded
door-to-door beggars of sugar.
Displeased with the halloween grinching?
It aint on accounta the Jesus lovin.
The creepster holiday just isn't a fav
(yep, this coming from one with an affinity for
skulls, wolf paws, and bobcat teeth).

I lied about the bats!
Don't you love the whimsy and imagination
of artist  Emily Winfield Martin?
Emily's new book is
Dream Animals
(Random House, 2013).

Does this trick-or-treater have her
Steve Martin and Kate Moss far-away look
down to an art or what?

In the Spring, She Married a Bear / Large Print 11x14

I feel unwelcome to this wedding, do you?

So go ahead and get your ghosty thrills on,
you halloweenie apple bobbers.
