Prezzies! Of the cuddly, demonic kind...

Thalia gave me a gift.

A remarkable, wondrous gift.

A handmade knitted Devil doll wearing a French maid's apron.

Officially, I'm delighted and speechless. Off the record, every dog in my neighborhood is howling, and Jack wants to know why all of our stemware just shattered.

That has nothing to do with the doll, and everything to do with my getting bumped off the visible "Disciples of Strife" board.

It's just as well, though. DiNardo was starting to catch wise.

I've been trying for ages to figure out how to make another row of disciples visible, but to no avail.

In the meantime, you could do what Yvonne did, and just unsub and refollow. If anything, I like it when the ironic profile pics outnumber the anonymous silhouettes.

Holy shit his tail is tucked into his pocket.

That is fucked up.

No, really. It is really fucked up. It is.

Evn said...

I know! Isn't it adorable?

Thalia Took said...

It's not fucked up; it is perfectly innocent. And convenient, as it shows off the eyelet on the pocket itself. Sheesh!

Though I have to admit I hadn't considered the French-maid-ness of the apron. He simply wanted to help out around the house. But make of it what you will. He's yours now.

When I sent it off today the mail-lady asked if the envelope contained anything hazardous, corrosive, or potentially explosive. I said no, but did have to wonder a bit. I mean, it's Old Scratch and all.

Far as I've been able to tell the maximum number of followers/disciples seems to be 18, and I've never seen any more on a blogger blog (as long as I've been paying attention, I mean), so I'd guess it's not something that can be changed.

Heh. She doesn't read my blog.

Have I told you lately that your my favorite Pagan Artist/devil-doll-making Witch of all time? Because if not, you so are.

Thalia Took said...

Oh, and sorry about the stemware.

Evn said...

No problem. It was more of a "Hey, look what I can do!" situation.

Awwww, thanks Evn. And yay!

I am coveting that so much I feel like I have a ice cream headache

Evn said...

Next time you're in town, I'll show it to you. Along with my etchings.

Hmmm. Sounds like an Etsy shop might be a good idea.

Evn said...

I concur.

I am having one made by Ursuline nuns as we speak- this one is going to be life size with a rubber nurses uniform. A variation on a theme- I am naming him Evn. And having him Scotchguarded.

Evn said...

Well, I was going to name this one Krampus, but perhaps I'll go with Le Cornichon instead. Or maybe Benandanti. Or Brick Redd.
