May you celebrate this winter solstice with the best of health and happiness! Family is not only what you were born into but also who you choose during this life. I love you my wacky weird and wonderful family chosen by the fates.
I know things will be even better next year. 2014 is the year of the wood horse. Stability strength power grace growth and life.

^v^ Salem/New Orleans Witch Hunt ^v^
Scott from NBC read Hand Book for Hot Witches and contacted me to see if I knew anyone interested in being in a reality TV show about witches in Salem or New Orleans. I feel that as someone who cares about and wants to truly represent our perspective this topic should be handled correctly. The lovely ladies who are in our circle would do it best. If you or a friend are interested, please contact him directly. I think this would be really fun for the right ladies, and educational for the general public.

Miracles are all around you everywhere, it's sometimes hard to remember in times of turmoil. But the good thing is the Goddess and the law of the universe does not favor one over another.
We are all equal to receive what we need from the abundant source of life that created us and everything around us. So when I feel sad, or that life is passing me by and giving breaks and gifts to everyone but me, or get jealous wrongly comparing my existence to others I remember the spell prayer ... "What the Law of the Universe has done for others it now does for me and more!" The energy of life flows all around us like an ocean, It is words like this that channel some of the life force of abundance to us and through us to also share and help others.
Best wishes to you and magic blessings on this yule tide season
Love Dame Darcy
Oh and don't forget your 2014 pagan holidays calendar :) See you next year!

I read Carol Channing’s palm about 12 years ago for Index magazine. All kinds of things about her life were revealed, but the most touching was that at the age of 78 right after her divorce I saw she was going to have another marriage. On Netflix there was a documentary on her and I got so excited, because I am a BIG fan. In Hello Dolly Carol looks just like my doll Isabelle, plus in Skidoo she is dressed like a psychedelic pirate. I read Carol Channing’s palm about 12 years ago for Index magazine. Anyways, in the documentary which came out last year, Carol is 90 now and she married her child hood sweetheart who was also featured. Carol’s life is not only a tribute to an amazing genius, unique artist, performer, and just a fantastic lady all around with a magic soul , but also a testimony to true love. I hope you make it to 100 Carol! And the fans you have touched will always keep your spirit alive forever.

How was your Halloween? Mine was very psychedelic. It was fun to hang with the witch friends aforementioned. A very fine evening indeed. However, I did contract some sort of flu which has me hallucinating like I am on a rocking ship at all times, which, in my case, you may think I would enjoy? Anyways, my illness struck me with a Autumnal spirit and made this little family of pumpkin weirdos which I felt compelled to share with you. Happy Fall equinox. 2014 is nigh and don't forget your witchcraft calendar for the new season.
Pumpkin Jack lives in big mushroom in the forest, he gets around very well crawling through the corn fields on his uni-gourd foot he has decorated with a single glistening jewel. Pumpkin Jack wears a ribbon on his hat that also has skeletons wearing top hats. He is a very complex little guy and lives in many universes at the same time. Share your dreams with him. Oh! And He can see in the dark! He is 9 inches tall with pose able arms and is made from genuine Indian corn just in time for the dolly-day season!
18 inches long. Wormy Gourd Head has very strong gourd arms, which don't actually help him much because they are so short. His great grandfather was the Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland, due to his famous thespian background Wormy is trying to get acting work to be as known in books and on the silver screen as his ancestor but is having no such luck, which is why he is here on Etsy. Wormy however is a charming fellow, and tried to spice up his gourd head with jeweled flowers. He will worm his way into your heart.
These pumpkin head siamese twins are named Crazy and Cry. They are koo koo. The way their mom tells them apart is one has a cloven corn hoof and the other only has a stumpy foot.
They get a long pretty well with everyone. They smile through the pain of being crazy even though their jeweled eyes are dripping black goo tears. They enjoy the fall season very much because this is when they were born. They are 14 inches tall and have a super soft fluffy tummy all stripey and yummy.
They used to burn witches just for crafting dolls, now maybe we all know why.
Check out the pictures of The Bon Adventure cemetery my friend Julie Jones just sent:
Photos of the original Addams Family set...kinda trippy to see it in color!

I love Weeki-Wachee Florida. I visited a decade ago but plan to go again as soon as my flippers can flop me there. Here is a documentary about real life Mermaids who are even more bananas than I am about living the life aquatic. Thanks Vincent for sending in this fun documentary.
DOLPHINS USUALLY ONLY RAPE EACH OTHER ...UNTIL NOW
HEY AND IF YOU WANT TO LIVE ON A SHIP NOW YOUR SHIP HAS COME IN!
I HAD A DREAM THAT WAS A POEM
It also had an illustration of child in a shipwreck , that on closer inspection was a wooden bow spirit of a cupid. Laying with it's wooden cracking skin on a bed of sea weed.
The ship did wreck, but mercy was mild.
Among debris lay a sleeping child.
And as he lay himself to rest.
He made himself an angels nest.
This was in reaction to a pirate I knew and loved leaving his treasure behind and telling me to search for a diamond ring through it which I did not find. But instead found celestial maps navigational charts and sailing instructional books, brackish barnicales and repulsive palmetto bugs, pirate flags smelling of rotting seaweed, molded photos and money from long ago times and far away places. Fair winds to all of you who love the sea. And also to the landlubbers who dream to live the dream.
Love Dame Darcy

Good Morning My Summer Honeys! Happy June 19th :)
The Mermaid Tarot Decks are back in print! Hooray, get em while they're hot!
Today is my birthday, I am a cusp. A Gemini who's other twin is a Cancer. This water/air combo makes for an interesting life, never a dull moment logistically talking myself out of being emotional. The up side is my top half is a faeiry the bottom half is a mermaid. Good times!
Happy Birthday to my twin friends and all others born on this day :)
Christy Kane, http://www.christykane.com/ (Doll Crafter extraordinaire), Tomas Palermo (my first love), my friend Charity, Doll daughter/granny Isabelle Espiore celebrates her 88th birthday today and last but not least the Marquis de Sade. They Kinda have a lot in common, besides both being French. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marquis_de_Sade
The Tarot card representing this day is The Sun.
In honor of the Summer Solstice I made this new hand painted faeiry print.
The summer solstice is the first day of summer, it is an exciting time for life and the fun times ahead in the warm weather.
In the southern tip of South America, the Mapuche people celebrate We Tripantu (the New Year) a few days after the northern solstice, on June 24. Further north, the Atacama people formerly celebrated this date with a noise festival, to call the Sun back. Further east, the Aymara people celebrate their New Year on June 21. A celebration occurs at sunrise, when the sun shines directly through the Gate of the Sun in Tiwanaku. Other Aymara New Year feasts occur throughout Bolivia, including at the site of El Fuerte de Samaipata.
In many cultures, the solstices and equinoxes traditionally determine the midpoint of the seasons, which can be seen in the celebrations called midsummer and midwinter. In this vein, the Japanese celebrate the start of each season with an occurrence known as Setsubun. The cumulative cooling and warming that result from the tilt of the planet become most pronounced after the solstices, leading to the more recent custom of using them to mark the beginning of summer and winter in most countries of Central and Northern Europe, as well as in Canada, the USA and New Zealand.

Frightful Fairytale is now being released as an E-Book! It's funny how 20 years ago I was self publishing but it's seen now as a "new" way of publishing. Don't call this a comeback I've been here for years :) Ha ha. Anyways, there are 3 new stories, and all new illustrations for them too! Plus a forward by the Wizard of Comics Alan Moore.
While sailing, we found and reused all the elements of this ecological jug painted with mermaids and decorated with recycled fish nets, casting ropes, shells found on different islands from the inner coastal water way of the south.
Perfect for a candle holder, or to transport your favorite kind of Rum by boat.
Also check out this amazing video of Real Life Mermaid Hannah! Ocean conservation is so important.
Hot Witch Debbie Harry
When I was 13 I saw Debbie Harry sing on Solid Gold, she gave me hope that there was a place for me in this world. She was a frontier front woman for style and music in 80's and beyond! I love the way Blondie blends 70's disco with 80's punk. Its still a classic sound. My favorite song (to cover as a mermaid at Naughty nautical Nite, and also Karaoke fun) is Tide is High. As a tribute to Debbie's glory please enjoy the following portraits, inspired by PUNK magazine circa 1979 :)

I will happily hand sign a personal note to your mother on any item in the store. 10% off Etsy coupon code: MOTHERSDAY
Here's a little about Beltane and Cinco de Mayo
Beltane is the Fire and Fertility festival in which we welcome summer. Celebrated by Celts, from sun down to sun down; Beltane being at sun down on April 30th until sun down on May 1st. The word Tane comes from the Welsh word meaning fire and Bel is the name of the Welsh sky god. Combined the words mean fire in the sky creating a wonderfully appropriate name to invoke summer. Traditionally two babies, one of each sex, were selected annually to be trained to become the Stag Lord and the May Queen. Their time came at the age of 14 and the boy ran with a herd of deer. At some point the dom buck, or great stag, would sense the intruder and it was up to the Stag Lord to overcome him. If he returning victorious and undamaged, he then mated with the May Queen as symbolic conformation.
The Beltane fires burned throughout the entire celebration to signal the suns strength returning. Live stock was driven between two bonfires during the festival to protect from disease in the coming year. The frail and sick also did this to obtain sun's healing power.
Beltane is a day to look back on our ancestors and give thanks to the lord and lady.
Cinco de Mayo is the day that Mexico celebrates victory over the French.
