    Wonder if she can make “Crunchy Frog” ornaments? “Of course they don’t take the bones out. If you took the bones out; they wouldn’t be crunchy, would they?”

    I love Ursula Vernon’s work. I hadn’t seen this one before!

  4. Jean-Robert LeMarchand Says:

    If you write a cookbook under an assumed name, are you using a “Nom-nom-nom de plume”

  5. Laurie Brown Says:

    Vernon has a Live Journal account, too, where she posts great art pages

    Dammit I really should have read this before xmas. That Voynich manuscript would have been perfect for my bestie. Much better than the hilariously bad renaissance “painting” I made for her :’D
