The Devil's Toolbox

It has been a long time tradition to give the man of the house a new toolbox for Christmas....but sometimes untraditional gifts are more fun... How about surprising HIM with The Devil's Toolbox under the tree this year...
Overflowing with rare 19th century tools and otherworldly, unearthly delights, this antique toolbox is sure to put a big, wicked smile on his face!

Everything fits in nice and compact and the box locks up with an old Masters lock! Update - Sold to Brooklyn Girl in New York!
Lots more new arrivals have been posted on my website in the different categories, especially in Boudoir....take a look.
Happy Holidays!

A Rare Find!

Look what I found in a crusty old box up in the rafters of my parents' garage - All handmade Victorian Tinsel Christmas ornaments. They must have been my grandmother's long ago. They look so amazing on the black Christmas tree at my shop.

Meet Velma, once a poor, pathetic, plain Jane pin cushion doll, now altered into a Gothic Primadonna.. Her transformation took place yesterday with the addition of Victorian beadwork, old Chantilly lace, antique pearls, vintage ormolu, and a big black spider. Now she is ready for the holiday season, a new home and a Midnight Ball. If you want her, she is $135 (10-29-08 - update - Velma sold and will be on her way to New York shortly)
