A creepy little something

I really shouldn't be showing this off because it's for someone nice that I suspect will visit this blog and peek BUT I CAN'T HELP MYSELF. There are a number of projects sitting here that can't be posted yet and it's driving me a little nutty.  So, I'm tossing my hands in the air in surrender and giving in to my childish need to show off with this one. Forgive me.

The exterior, a wee wooden coffin. I always go shopping after holidays like Halloween. There are great bargains to be had and I load up on things that might come in handy. There's no telling when you'll suddenly need a tiny coffin in February.

Wonder what's on the inside?

Everything a fairy sized vampire hunter could possibly need! A mirror, holy water, stakes and mallet/hammer, silver cross and chain, tiny bible and... of coarse, garlic. The bulb of garlic almost didn't make it in.

My kid saw this piece this morning as said "That's so cool! ...but where's the garlic?" And because I always take the advice and critiques of children seriously, I promptly made a little bulb of the smelly stuff.

Overall size? 6" tall x 2.75" wide. Includes: Thin Looped Dresden Borders, 
Graphic 45's new Shabby Chic Ornate Metal Key Hole and Ornate Metal Brads, as well as matchsticks, bb pellets, beads, paper and other bits and bobs.


  1. This is amazing!! It would look great next to my Buffy dvd collection, I'm so jealous!

  2. Saw your photo on Pinterest. This is seriously Cool! I laughed when you said you never know when you might need a coffin in February. I have a stock of them too - just for that reason. LOL Such a great project. I love this so much!

  3. This is really, really cool (and cute!). I could totally see Cordelia rocking it as a purse in Angel.

  4. Actually that is a great accessory for everyone's

  5. That is the best wee coffin I've ever seen! And the garlic is perfect. ^___^


  6. It's so tiny and perfect! Love it!

  7. This is just priceless. You have an amazing mind and the artistic skills to match.
