"Rosie Clown" Ghost, OOAK Halloween Art doll is now appearing on Ebay until Sunday Oct 20th. She was inspired by the June 22, 1918 Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus train wreck. It occurred only a few miles from where I currently live. At approximately 4:00 am the country's second largest circus had stopped on the tracks to check overheated axle bearings on one of the flat cars. Behind them was the Michigan Central rail road troop train pulling 20 empty cars. The engineer was ill and with lack of sleep had dozed off, missing all the warning signals and flares along the way. At the location between Gary and Hammond, Indiana the troop train plowed into the caboose and the four rear wooden sleeper cars of the circus train at the speed of 35 mph. The victims died in their sleep.
After the collision, the kerosene lanterns on board ignited the wooden cars, making it difficult for any survivors to escape the flames. There were 86 deaths and 127 were injuries.

Alice Mable Gray
Alice is a local legend here in NW Indiana. She was an such an amazing lady!
She was highly educated, and yet chose to escape the "slavery" of her life in Chicago. In 1915 she became a recluse and lived year round on the shores of Lake Michigan. Surviving the harsh weather at the Indiana Dunes in an abandoned shack for the next 7 years.
Her story was an inspiration for my Diana ghost doll. Visit her on Ebay to read more of her sad story.
Some say they have seen her there still. A ghostly lady swimming in the waves, or simply standing alone on the shore, the Northwest wind blowing her hair, there at the Dunes, Alice so dearly loved.

Well, this little one is getting anxious. She is complaining that I have set her aside during the Holiday. She wants to be finished...now! Plus there is the matter of her NAME....she hasn't told me exactly what she wants the world to call her..........
She wants to go out and play. I told her we will when the rain stops. We will go to her "favorite place" and play!
