If This Had Been An Actual Emergency...

Please excuse this interruption to our regularly scheduled programming. If this had been an actual emergency you would have been instructed to turn to page 13 in your grimoire. 

I'm suffering from a spell of ennui these days. This is not the end; I'm looking for a spark of inspiration. As soon as I find it, Shivers of Delight will be back.

Is it just me?

The Temptation of St. Anthony


No Peeking


The Puppeteer Contemplates Death and the Devil

If you like dark, folk, fairy tales of Eastern Europe this is the shop for you.

Damaged Goods

I was so excited to see that Beth Robinson has some new dolls in her shop Strange Dolls! I purchased an Accident Doll from Robinson several years ago at an art show in Burlington, VT and I just love it. She is calling her new collection Frost Bite.

Accident Doll

Dr. Scops

Robinson's dolls are typically a little fragile and damaged, but romantically so. Make sure you stop by the shop for a look.
