I don't know if it is the new blogger set up, or the update that has been run on my computer, but I'm having a lot of trouble posting lately. I have some fun new things to share and as soon as I can get the picture and link posting problems figured out, I'll be back to my regular posting. Until then, hang in there my loyal bloggy readers :) I miss you guys bunches ;) -The Countess

A Very Twisted Story

Just read this article in the news today and it is so weird and twisted. A real life horror story. I hope that the victim's family can finally have some peace in this case. The part about the ghost sightings and dreams of the victim is what prompted me to post it again here. I know that most of us are quite intrigued by the supernatural.

Amazing Costume

I don't usually post much about costumes. I usually stick to the same, simple thing every year, because I just don't have the time to come up with something new, in the midst of all the building and set up before Halloween.

But, I may have to reconsider after seeing this lovely and extremely impressive costume that I ran across while ranomly surfing the web for Halloween stuff

She even posted her whole "how-to" on her blog page here:

I'm blown away! What a beautiful job :)

Happy Haunting,

The Countess :)

Words simply cannot express how insanely excited we are here at 2nd Street Cemetery :)  We found out today that we won Best Static Prop for the 2011 Home Haunters Video Awards!

It wasn't specified which prop it was that caught the judge's eyes, but I'm guessing that it was good ol' Jack :)

I'll be floating on cloud 9 for a while, so please excuse the giddiness that will occur ;)  And then it will start all over again when the skull trophy arrives :)  I cannot wait to display it next to Jack in the haunt this year. This is the happiest I've been since my wedding day ;)

Thanks to everyone that has encouraged and taught me along the way :) All of my blog followers, ya'll always make my day with your encouraging comments :) Support is the best thing for a creative mind.

Now without further ado...

Happy Haunting!
