Charity is sexy!

... or: how to sell stuff on the BAT of an eyelid.

Did you know that ghosts are sexy? Here's The Man to prove the point. 

My stay- ups never encountered legs more hairy. I am German. And what is that cat doing?

Those of you who read my previous ghostie posts might know that I am on a spooky trip. And during a very enjoyable eMail- exchange with Pam from gingerbrad snowflakes, I pledged to sort of donate my wee ghosties to charity.

Well, it is all done now.
Today, I made ten pairs of ghostie earrings and listed them in my Folksy shop.
They are £2.50 each and are free of P&P.
For every sold pair I will donate £2.50 to the Bat Conversation Trust, because as I might have mentioned before, bats are just plain gorgeous in my book.

So, if you feel like spookifying yourself AND do something amazing to help saving those impressive, unobtrusive, helpful, inspiring creatures, get your PayPal ready.

What you will get is a pair of these:

and what you will help save is this:

If this isn't win- win, I don't know what is.


  1. Those are the cute cute cutest bats! Great idea and cause, yay. The Man is doing his part - I really appreciate him! You are such a hilarious and (obviously) perfectly matched couple.

  2. How do you even manage to make bats adorable? Seriously?

  3. Love the ghosts --too cute :)
    And Oooooeee those bats are a sight to see! They are all around here and scare the crap out of me --but you make them seem almost sorta cute!

  4. I LOVE the ghosties! And I am honestly startled to say the bats are adorable!

  5. I love bats. Good for you! I am hosting the Halloween WOW (Witches of Wye). Basically it's an excuse for 8 of us to drink and howl at the moon every month -- I posted about the WOWs on my blog long ago but thought of what you wrote about my foxes. We are both Leos -- one reason we love cats so much...we ARE cats...

  6. The 2nd to last bat looks kinda like my Chihuahua Mimi :) Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I am totally laughing over yours!
