The Art of Darkness

DoomieI’m trying to figure out how to write this post without making it sound like the plot of a Fellini film, but that may not be possible.

Okay, Doomies are little garden “gnomes” (their word, not mine) that look like the grim reaper and also can be used as incense smokers. Makes…perfect sense.

From the very scant information on their site, I suspect that they’re based in the Netherlands. They sell handmade ceramic Doomies in three sizes ranging from 11-28 € (about $13-35) but there’s no information about whether they ship internationally.

Still, I’m rather taken with the idea of a miniature reaper stalking around my garden and scowling at chipmunks.

Their other product is Rebirdy, a birdhouse shaped like a skull. The birds enter and leave through the eye holes. That’s sort of awesome too.
