2018 Halloween Haunted House Tour- Day 1

Hello dear spooks! Guess what time it is? We’re almost halfway through October already, and you know what that means…. it’s time for my annual Halloween Haunted House Tour!

Hurricane Michael came through my area this week. Fortunately by the time it reached Carolina, most of the damaging wind and rain had lessened significantly. But we still got plenty wet, and as we haven’t really had a chance to dry out from Florence, this storm hit us just a wee bit harder.

We’re still pretty soggy, but things are getting back to normal. I lost power for about fourteen hours, but that is a small price to pay for what it could have been. Power is back on today, and it is a beautiful sunny day out there. Perfect chance to take some tour photos. Most of the house is still quite dark. But the dining room is nice and bright right now. So let’s start there.

I know most of you have toured for many years with me by now. And I’m not sure how different things look this year. But there’s always a few new additions and tweaks here and there… and my mom would never forgive me if I didn’t share. 😀

I will mostly let the photos do the talking, but if you have any questions, be sure to leave them in the comments. As always, my dishes on my antique sideboard are a mix of vintage transferware pieces and ironstone. Of course I pull out the black patterns for Halloween. Also on the sideboard are most of my collection of spooky bones, skulls, and skeletons, as well as my beloved Lori Mitchell collection. Nothing too spooky. I don’t want to get the creeps!
Enjoy the tour!

You can see what a beautiful sunny day it is here today. Almost like the storm never came through. Hope it’s a fabulous fall day in your nook of the woods, too.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Ohhhhhhhhh it’s my fave time of year at Audrey’s house!!! I love love love love how everything looks!! Glad to hear Michael didn’t cause any damage for you! We have had a couple of tropical storms that have come in via Mexico, and has given us MORE rain in the past couple of weeks than we had for all of last year!!! Crazy!!!

  2. I always look forward to your house tours, Audrey! Must be extra wonderful in person! Love your Lori Mitchell collection particularly the girl with the pigtails sticking out from the sides of her head. Adorable! I’ve never seen them around here.

  3. I love your holiday tours! The sideboard is always my favorite. Those dishes mixed with the spooky, cute, whimsical, and vintage just makes me smile. You have such a knack for pulling it all together. Love it. So glad to hear that the storm did not damage your home. Such scary times. Looking forward to more spooky goodness.

  4. It’s fun to revisit each year and see the new stuff and the stuff I recognize from before. Glad you’ve gotten a little break from the weather. I know there for a while we didn’t think we would ever dry out.

  5. I love your tours! You have such a fun collection!
    Glad you are okay…the weather has been erratic all over the world this year. Hope you get to enjoy better weather soon!

  6. I can only drool, thanks for the fabulous tour once again!
    I haven’t get my things unpack, so nothing for us this year! (I couldn’t even find the things that I use on a regular basis, let alone decoration : (

  7. Oh, wow!! I always enjoy your Halloween tour, Audrey!! Lots of spooky fun decorating by you!! Glad things are better there from Hurricane Florence! My thoughts and prayers were with all affected. Not sure if I can spot some new things, but to love the scene in the window and the skeleton shade…so fun! All decorations are fab including the Lori Mitchell collection!! Thanks so much for sharing, Audrey! Happy Halloween!!!
