Little Pink's Ghost arrived today in the mail and I couldn't contain my squee as I opened the box and pulled her out. She's handcrafted by the superbly talented, Lisa Snellings. Her poppets are not only amazing, they are inspiring. When I found out that she was closing her Halloween Shop to orders on the 5th of October (today), I jumped at the opportunity to have a piece of her work as my own just in time for the Halloween season.
Little Pink's Ghost is sitting atop my current RIP read, What Remains of Heaven by C. S. Harris. I fell in love with the Sebastian St. Cyr Mystery series a few years ago. The series, particularly this book, lends itself well to the RIP Challenge, as it's centered around a mysterious murder. I love that Little Pink's cloak swings out hauntingly behind her in the same fashion as the books cover art.
There is such attention to detail, from the texture of Little Pink's cloak, her delicate ruff, right down to her little rag rabbit that she carries close to her side. The effect of this little ghost is amazing. She has a special place on my night stand for the season.
