The Burton Blog Bash... just because I want to :)

OK, yes it's been a while, and YES I HAVE MISSED YOU... hehe

So I'm Back, From Outer Space (Oh crappola has anyone else now got Gloria Gaynor appearing in their mental feedback?) Just kidding... virtual space, really just hibernating as I tend to do, us cave dwellers need some treats left out to entice us back into blog land, and nothing could be sweeter or more delicious than the devilish dynamic duo of Emma (Little Gothic Horrors) and Holly (Holly's Horrorland) who are celebrating (get your homemade foil alien & alliteration protection hats on)... the Burton Blog Bash!

Sooooo... I was thinking about Timmy's latest movie (well I fell in love with Mr Burton so long ago I feel I can call that creative darling something a little more intimate) his movie (by the way I hope to see on the weekend)... 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children'. When out of the blue it struck me... perhaps because I was stalking Emma's blog (don't tell her), I thought... what about the 'original' peculiar children, Wednesday & her sibling Pugsley birthed into the world by Charles Addams???

Then serendipity thrushed (is that a word or a venereal disease?) anyway exposed let's say, on my facebook feed, a post of a new 'Burton Bar' in New York while I was procrastinating in creative contemplation... and I thought, YES... This is where grown up Pugsley could now find a job, and sweet Wednesday could sip her chosen poison and insult other patrons until she slid so low on her bar stool only the ends of her plaits would remain in sight...

I loved those 2... and they so SHOULD have been in a Burton film... but now... the peculiar adults, have a sanctuary in New York.


Truthfully I have NO idea how a toilet roll seems to appear in most my photos... soz, just realised :/


So yes, so happy to have been invited... now off to check other 'Bash' participants, and, well maybe pour a glass of something red ;) Have a peculiar weekend my loves x

Linda Wildenstein said...

Love this duo with all my might. Well done not only as a choice for your posting but also as an example of your stranger than fiction talent and sensibilities. And as to your words and phrases, you should bring them out to play more often you naughty girl. Thrushed??????? tralalala it makes me giggle.
You da best babe, xoxo Oma Linda

I think I just heard Emma scream. Only you, my beloved Shelle, can make this kind of glorious Magic. The Addams siblings look perfect. And my goodness, I just adore Wednesday's tattoo and the grin on Pugsley's face.

Awesome!

Miranda - Spooky Little Halloween said...

Your artwork is stunning, and I love your grown up versions of Wednesday and Pugsley!

Debi said...

Hibernation hasn't dulled your Artist Talents any I see! Right you are! Wednesday would grow up to run her own school for amazing children and Pugsley would be ruler of Mars, first to arrive on Virgin Space craft! Love celebrating with wild at heart crew!
Yes you are missed! xo

Nicole said...

Wow! I love this picture. You did such a great job! Glad to see you at the bash!

Melancholy and Menace said...

This is complete perfection! I think I heard Emma scream, too ♥

There's a kid on the game show Child's Play called The Demon Describer, but I think that title should go to you! I love the way you put things and paint things! I want to work at that bar with Pugsley and Wednesday!

Magic Love Crow said...
