But gee, Virginia, if there really IS a Santa Claus, I so want this (and I'm only putting this ONE thing on my wish list to prove I'm not greedy):
That's right--the dream of every boy and girl: one's very own taxidermied bat! With jeweled eyes even and perched inside a faux Victorian bird cage made from salvaged vintage metal!
How cool is this? THIS would be perfect for my house--I love this kind of creepy handicraft.
It's offered by "ravenofskys" on this Etsy page, the source of the photos above. (I did tweak the pics just a bit for better clarity.) It's had 1602 viewings so far, but at $450, no takers since its initial posting. (Not sure when that was, but I found it on Nov. 13; it now shows a listing date of Nov. 17.) Ravenskys is the Etsy moniker of one Raven Young, a gothic artist who describes herself as a "female outsider artist from Berks County Pennsylvania."
If she showed up outside on my doorstep with this, she'd be an "insider" real quick.
And if you came to my place, saw this, and said you liked it, you would probably be my friend for life.
