Happy St. Valentines Day

By the Middle Ages, St. Valentine’s Day was celebrated on February 14th in conjunction with birds mating and the arrival of spring. Lovers sent notes to each other proclaiming their everlasting love and often signed their greetings, “from your valentine,” just as it’s believed St.Valentine penned his greeting to the young woman he is believed to have been in love with.

1 How do we do it ? We find a gravestone We love.
1 Then we carefully rub the stone.
ACCUSED OF GRAVE ROBBINGLike the witches of Salem, we have been unjustly accused.
No,We don't rob graves. Just because we love the art carved on old gravestones and then turn those designs into incredible wearable art doesn't make us grave robbers! Let's get this straight, we're just two people who love the art and symbolism displayed on ancient stones and monuments and proudly reproduce this incredibly awesome and sometimes macabre art on t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and velvet.
This season we are concentrating on escape artists, nightmarish novelists, doomed innocents and frightful fictioneers - Poe, lovecraft, Ichabod Crane, Shakespeare, Harry Houdini, Dracula, Edward Gorey and even Mother Goose.
Start here with our Shakespeare and H.P. Lovecraft designs...
