Musings on: Little Pink's Ghost

Isn't she lovely?

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.

  1. Ooh, I have the first Sebastian St. Cyr mystery on my shelf but haven't read it yet - I am leery of starting a long series. However, I have finished my previous favorite historical mystery series, so it would be great to sink my teeth into a new one!

  2. Hello Aarti, The series is pretty good. I think it gets progressively better with each book. It is now 7books in, but on the upside, they are relatively quick reads so the series doesn't feel that long. I'd be interested to see what you think if you decide to give it a try.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Your new statue is gorgeous! Perfect partner for your R.I.P. books and movies!

    I put this C.S. Harris series on my list years ago because of your past reviews and still haven't picked up the first book. Argh. Story of my life.

    1. She's such a cute little thing! And yes, the perfect companion.

      That's the story of my life as well. There are so many books I've been meaning to read but never get around to.
