Creepy Cool.....

We just love these Bethany Lowe 
Halloween Boards!

what's the story behind these 
creepy characters?

They are figures taken from 
calendars taken from 
The Antikamnia Chemical Company

The skeletons were created from  1897-1901 
who was a physician as well as an artist.

The Antikamnia company used these calenders 
to promote their drug "Acetanilide"
it was sold claiming to treat
pain, nervousness &  blues

worked wonderfully....
but you'd go blue after taking it,
 for it prevented red blood cells
 from releasing oxygen to your tissues!

Maybe that's what this skeleton is trying to say!

Acentanilide isn't around today...
but these great drawings still are!

Hi Girls!!

I was just going to say these guys look like they took too much of the stuff! They'd be better off using the Toad Bladders you have for sale!!

Looks like you're having LOTS of fun with this creepy time of year, I can only imagine what your place looks like. SPOOKYyyyyyy

Big hugs, Edie Marie

PS don't forget the garlic around your neck!
