The 2015 Halloween Haunted House Tour, Cont.

2015-halloween-haunted-houseHappy Friday, my friends!  I am back today with more of my 2015 Halloween Haunted House Tour. Last week I shared my haunted front entryway, and now, let’s step into my living room.

The credenza along my back wall is a great spot for a little Halloween scene, built around a fabulous antique watering can I found this past summer. I do love baskets and containers of all sorts and sizes for grouping my collections of things. In this case, Halloween gifts from family and friends mixed with a few handcrafted spooks.

The skeleton and candy corn are a pair of my own handmade prims. The tiny mummy is a craft project of my Missy Nik’s when she was wee little. It’s a wooden ice cream stick, painted and wrapped in torn strips of cloth. Such an easy and fun Halloween project if you have kids around.

Mimsie the Mummy is still here with me. She is one of the very last Halloween prims still left in my Fall Shop. I’m so tickled at how popular my little friends have been, thanks to all of YOU!

And now for my Halloween mantel….

… filled with ghosts and skeletons, pumpkins, spiders and bats, and lots and lots of ooey gooey eyeballs.

Decorating doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive. I find that the older I get, what tugs on my heartstrings the most are things that my kiddos made when they were little.  And even the things that I have made over the years, too. Because these are the “things” that truly tell the story of your life. And if they make you happy, then that’s all that matters.

Nik painted the little gourd ghost at a fall festival when she was still small. She drew the eyeball in chalk pastels quite a few years ago now, as well. Talk about a perfect partner for the jar o’ eyeballs and the eyeball greeting card my mom has given to me.

The skeleton portrait Pete made in art class so many years ago now. Hanging with my boyfriend, Mr. Bones.

For my dear friend, Patty, who loves spiders! HahaHA



This poor guy on the hearth has had such a fright.

As have these guys, too. I think they all just caught a peep of Mimsie in the back….

…. and that’s enough to frighten anyone!

I hope you enjoyed! There’s more tour still to come, so stay tuned. And thank you all for stopping by. Happy weekend!
