What October 1st looks like here…


Many people think I start setting up way earlier than I actually do. Sure, sometimes I set up the inside of my house in September (not this year) but mostly I start the outside set up on the 1st weekend in Oct.


Maybe, but once it’s set up, it needs to be managed. Weather being a big factor in how much effort it takes everyday. Most of my electronic stuff can not be put out this early, though I do try and have it out and on on the weekends.

So what does my house look like today?  It starts in the attic, where I store most of Halloween.  If I’m being honest, it’s in almost every room inside my house as well, but the bulk of it is here.


And this is what my living room looks like today:







Scared?  Me too but maybe not for the same reason.

Halloween is mostly a one person gig around here.  Me.  I love it but at this starting point, it’s hard not to feel a little overwhelmed at the monumental self imposed task at hand.

So I eat some candy corn, grab a skull, and get my haunt on.  I typically don’t blog too much about Halloween but I’m going to make an effort this year to.  Probably.  So come back and when you do, bring me a PSL will ya?  Thanks.

(Not Your) Tombstone Contest

So I do Halloween big. Real big. Whole front yard big. Every year I add a tombstone or two to the collection. This year I decided to run a contest for best Epitaph. Leave a comment with an Epitaph that is NOT GOOGLEABLE and then the winner will be picked either by me or by whoever gets the most “likes”

I will then let you pick the shape that you want and I will make and display this tombstone in my yard.

Rules: No Sex, Satan, or anything Religious. That stuff just creeps out the neighbors AND I do have small children who live with me.

You want a piece of me?
