Cornelius has a Girlfriend!

After thinking about it this past week.......I now know why most scarecrows are portrayed as male. Think about it! Women just have WAY too much attitude for the job! Meet poor Clara. She definitely has some attitude too! I mean, come're stuck on a stick and staked out in the middle of a dusty, dirty field by some farmer named Jim Bob......surrounded by nothing but acres of corn! Like that's any fun! Geeeez......even soybeans would be more entertaining! Plus, you can just imagine what that sun does to a girl's hair! There's not enough conditioners in the world to bring her beautiful locks back to life after a long summer! Thank goodness he put a bag over her head! Can you imagine what those damaging rays could do to her skin? (Ever hear of sunscreen Jim Bob?)'s not pretty!

Well.....I think old Cornelius Scarecrow might be better off living the single life! Poor Clara's about had it with this gig!

5th in The Ravenson Family Series...............

May I present to you Aunt Sybil Ravenson........the 5th doll in the Ravenson series by doll artist Joyce Stahl of Enchanted Productions!

Have you ever had a dream that came true? Or maybe you've had a feeling about someone that turned out to be right? Maybe you have visions. You have? If so, then you may have what some call the "second sight"......"special knowledge".....or the "third eye". It just may make you a seer...or someone who is able to foretell the future.

Meet Aunt Sibyl Ravenson. Sibyl (which means prophetess) has been different all of her life. Born a seer, with the second sight.....she's always had "special knowledge" about events in the lives of those around her. From the moment that Sibyl was born, Grandmama Ravenson knew that Sibyl was special too. She knew that the girl's life would be shrouded in mystery and that the young one would need special guidance. So Sibyl, always under the watchful eye of her Grandmama, was taught the mysteries of life....of the earth, of nature and the ways of magick.

Ever mind the rule of three.

Three times what thou givest returns to thee.

This lesson well, thou must learn.

Thee only gets what thou dost earn.

But why am I telling you all of this story? If you have the second already know it! LOL!

Cornelius the Creepy Scarecrow on eBay!

It's a cool, crisp Fall night and it's late. You and one of your girlfriend have been to the theater to see the latest horror movie. It was a real thriller too.....with lots of blood and gore and your mind is filled with creepy images that won't soon leave you. You quietly wonder to yourself if you'll ever fall asleep tonight. That might be a good thing though......since you'll probably have nightmares anyway.

It's a cool, crisp Fall night and it's late. You and one of your girlfriend have been to the theater to see the latest horror movie. It was a real thriller too.....with lots of blood and gore and your mind is filled with creepy images that won't soon leave you. You quietly wonder to yourself if you'll ever fall asleep tonight. That might be a good thing though......since you'll probably have nightmares anyway.

Ten minutes ago, you dropped your girlfriend off at her house. Since she lives so far out in the countryside, she had invited you to spend night at her place.....but you declined. You have to be at work early the next morning, so you decided to head home. As your car crests a small hill, your heart sinks as you hear the engine begin to sputter. To your horror, you realize that your car has run out of gas along this long, dark, lonely stretch of country road. The gravel crunches under your tires as you slowly coast to the side of the road and come to a stop. As you sit there for a moment, you notice that the silence is deafening and the darkness that surrounds you is inky black. Off in the far distance, you can see a light lit in a solitary farmhouse. Since you haven't seen another car pass by, you realize that your only hope for assistance is to walk the lonely stretch of road between you and the farmhouse. Gathering up all of your courage, you leave the safety of your car.

The air has become colder as the night wears on and the wind, once a soft breeze, is beginning to blow harder as a storm approaches. Occasionally, flashes of distant lightning illuminate the huge corn fields on either side of the road. Out of the corner of your eye, you see something in the corn field off to your right. What could it be? Your heart begins to pound. You can see your breath in the cold air as you quicken your pace.

How you wish that you could cover your eyes and hide! An eerie feeling of being watched comes over you. With the next flash of lightning, you realize that it's only a scarecrow, stuck on a stake in the field to keep the crows away. You breath a little easier now and have to laugh at yourself for allowing your imagination run wild. You know how scared you can get after watching horror movies.

Then suddenly, in the silence, you hear it! The rustling sound of corn stalks. You tell yourself that it's only the wind and try to remain calm. Your eyes search the field for a glimpse of the scarecrow high above the corn, but you're unable to see anything in the darkness. With the next lightning flash you see it though! The bare, solitary stake.....silhouetted against the night sky. The same stake where the scarecrow had been hanging just minutes ago. The rustling sound seems to be coming closer to the edge of the field now, as though someone or something is walking towards you.

With your heart now pounding in your ears, you begin to run. The rustling sound continues to grow louder. It seems as though the sound is beside you now. Whatever it's keeping pace with you just on the other side of the corn, ready to jump out and grab you at any minute! Your lungs burn with every breath and your side aches as you run as fast as you can. You feel the fear beginning to engulf your every fiber of being and it's all you can do to hold back your screams.

"Wake up Joycee......Time to get up!" says a familiar voice from down the hall. It's my husband's voice. After a foggy moment or two, I realize that it was only bad dream. See......that's why I don't watch scary movies anymore. LOL!

Nefragigi.....the Newest Enchanted Productions Doll on eBay!

OK......Imagine that you have everything you could ever possible want! You live in a splendid palace on the Giza Plateau.....the beautiful Nile river stretches out before you.....and those really cool pyramids are right over there! You lay around all day eating dates and pomegranates, while servants constantly fan you with palm fronds. (that's the part I like) Anyway, one day you're partying with Pharaoh and the next thing you wake up.....tangled in bandages, with a really bad case of dry some Egyptian display in a museum in Cleveland, Ohio. You realize that your major organs are now neatly displayed in jars beside you and you have a headache that could drop a camel in a heartbeat! No wonder poor little Gigi is fussy! You'd be fussy too if you had centuries worth of sand lodged in unspeakable places! (it doesn't even compare to a day at the beach)
