Trapped Ghost

Trapped ghost

Thought you might like to see this little trapped ghost I captured at the weekend! Don’t be fooled by his sad little face – he’s been causing havoc for centuries. I had to make an especially big DO NOT OPEN label as I’ll be putting him out in public soon and I don’t want anything bad to happen.

If you’d like to see him in person, then he’ll be part of the spooky cute window display I will be doing for Hannah Zakari this Halloween! If you pop over to the Edinburgh shop over the next couple of weeks, he’ll be doing his hardest to tempt you into opening that jar.

Glad I’ll be in Japan if that happens…

More photos once it’s all put together! And don’t forget he’s part of my Spooky Wooky Badge Set too, if you want your own little ghost.
