    foolishmortal42 replied to a thread Mechanical: 2012 Grave Slab in Halloween Props
    Predator35 Thank you for your kind comments. The dimensions were 32 x 77 inches. You could definitely get away with a smaller length. Less material is easier storage. I am sorry but I don't remember exactly how many 1 x 4s. It was 2 years ago....maybe eight? There are some photos of it during construction if that might be helpful at the beginning of the thread. Let me know if you have any additional questions. Happy Haunting

    If you ever need to thin the collection, do let me know ;) It just so happens that I'm actually trying to fatten my collection. This could be the start of a beautiful exchange. :p

    Bluefrog...Silverplate is becoming a big problem for me. A huge problem. It's almost as if the sight of tarnished silverware awakens the primal urge to spend money inside me. I'm trying to find a pair of silver plated Candelabras, preferably with 4 arms. I feel like one day soon, I'm going to be sitting alone with a massive collection of vintage silver plate, while the cast and crew of "my strange addiction" assembles outside. Worth it. ;)

    Bluefrog... are you seeking employment as a personal shopper? Because after seeing your finds, I think I need one! :p Fantastic finds, as usual. I'm green with envy. Somehow it slipped my mind to post these earlier, but they were in the same manilla envelope as the old photos I found in my house. They are funeral prayer cards, and the oldest dates back to 1892. All from the same family, last name Braun, related to the house's previous owner. (And if you're wondering if I'm just posting this...

    in mine (if you unzip the access opening) you can just unplug the lights from the motor. Then you would just plug then into you Light O Rama. and maybe add a piece of tape to cover the access opening where the cord runs out.

    We meet at different members homes. So it varies from month to month...and thankfully, not all 260+ people attend every month. There would be no where to fit everyone! Have you already joined the Facebook group? I don't know people by their forum names, so forgive me if you've already joined. :-)

    Thank you, Bluefrog and frogkid, my favorite froggy friends. :p Bluefrog, have you ever posted any photos of your interior? I'd really love to see your collection, since I know you have killer tastes, and your buys often make me green with envy. And frogkid, you're right! I should count my blessings and just keep buying LMAO. The doll demands it. ;)

    Jealous of everyone's finds, as usual. So... can I post home decor in this thread? I apologize for my absence on the threads lately, but I'm kind of remodeling my bedroom, and by kind of, I mean totally. Anyway, I had these grandiose visions of a Victorian/1920s fusion, but the more furniture I buy, the more my room just looks like the Haunted Mansion. Not that I'm complaining... When I saw the clawed feet, it was all over. I could barely get my wallet out fast enough, I was practically...

    I love old gothic Victorian horror. The stories manage to be creepy without tons of gore. They build suspense and let your imagination fill in the details. A couple of great authors that you don't hear about much...Joseph Sheridan LeFanu (the author of Carmilla one of the first literary vampire stories...long before Dracula) and M.R. James. Both wrote short stories and there works are often found in collections of their stories. I highly recommend these authors and almost any of their...

    What kind of grass do you have? I have Bermuda. I put most of my props out 2 weeks before Halloween and it does not kill the grass. I have several large props including a 6 x 8 mausoleum with a roof and it does not kill the grass. I think you will be fine.

    I'm in love with your raven. So much so I'm going to attempt to build one for myself. Personally I think I'm crazy to even imagine that i can build this this. I'm just waiting for the rest of my parts to get started. I've been studying your photos trying to wrap my head around it all. I know this will be my most challenging build ever, but I do love a challenge! Thanks for the inspiration and your pics that will get me started in the right direction!
