Happy Halloween to all the Bats and Belles Free (with nods to Walt Kelly)


 There was some discussion on etsy about the use of the phrase "With Bated breath".  Do you use the correct word bated, or the common word baited, did any of this have anything to do with the original conversation, does any of this give you more sales and really who cares?
That and this lovely soft sculpture creation by ChatNoirStudios inspired the following bit of nonsense.

I baited my breath
to attract the bats
to move into the belfry
along with the cats.

My breath has abated
my brain has been batted
The belfry is scented 

with an aroma that's catted.


With love,
Kristi Smart

Onyx is a protective stone that repels negative energy. As with all of my items it is strung with mindfulness and metta loving kindness!

Lunch in NYC

I had the pleasure of having lunch with tofunutloaf, creator of the 'bots and the monsters, and her husband, Bob, in NYC. She had the stars of her movies with her and would you believe it, I forgot to ask for autographs.
