The Devil's in the Details

Sometimes it's small details that really bring a haunt together. Here are some of my favorite small details from our haunt :)

Marie Laveau's table oddities
Plaque on Marie's crypt
Twig figures in the tree
Dead roses in a vase
The x's on Marie's crypt
The legendary ditch monster 
A toe pincher weathered to perfection!

I hope you all enjoyed these lesser seem details as much can as I did as I began picking everything up today πŸŽƒ

Happy Haunting!

Project Progress

For some reason, we are notorious for being last minute with Halloween projects. This year is no exception, but we're still trucking along. Thankfully, today is my last day of work before my Halloween vacation, so I'll have more time to work on things and wrangle the little monster while the hubs works on his projects πŸŽƒπŸ‘»
Here's where we're at with a few things now...

Lots of fun, new things are underway! 

Oh and here's my Halloween office attire today πŸŽƒ

Happy Haunting!!!

Rest peacefully Mr. Poe. Keeping your memory alive by sharing your works with my little guy.

Stranger Things

Anyone else obsessed with 'Stranger Things'?  I want more!  So much awesome, nostalgic creepiness here. And in the midst of it all, the innocence and resilience of children.
Did I mention the soundtrack?  Check it out if you haven't all ready.

Awesome soundtrack here :)

Transition Year

Halloween 2015 was a blur. Yet, it went really well, considering we were adjusting to parenthood and the neighborhood celebrated a day early due to terrible weather predicted for the 31st.
In the after glow, the hubs and I discussed our mutual feeling that it was time to transition the cemetery. We had played out the current atmosphere and had run out of new ideas. 
We came up with an ambitious plan to freshen things up. It'll give us the advantage of new props and structures for a few years.
Here's the first new structure that we've been working on. Brownie points to the first person to guess what the new theme is πŸ‘»πŸŽƒ

The Countdown Has Begun....

And I have a feeling, this month will fly by πŸ˜‚πŸŽƒ

October Eve 2016

 I. Can't. Wait! The air has finally cooled down here in Southern Louisiana, just in time to usher in October 1st. 
2nd Street Cemetery has many cool ideas in the boiling pot. It's just a matter of what we can get done, given that our little minion keeps us busy... but, be assured, the little fella has been taught well and all ready has a love for all things Halloween >=) It should be a very fun, haunty seasonπŸ‘»πŸŽƒ
Stay tuned my friends!

Creepy Classy

I just received the most beautiful and perfect piece of jewelry, from my husband for my birthday. Pearl earrings, intricately carved into skulls. Creepy and classy... just like me.
Get your own here.
