    I know what I'm sending, but I need to go pick it up tomorrow. :) If our locations don't have what I'm looking for, I will be one sad little ghost! I will have to find something similar, if they're out of what I reaaaaally want for my victim. ;)

    I'm mailing on deadline day! It's a half day of work for me, so I am hoping that the last piece arrives in the mail before I head to the post office, after work. If not, it will be a PIF mailing, when it does finally arrive (which could be as late as the 9th, according to the order slip, but may even be later, according to some reviews on their page...wish I'd read that first!). Here are two more teasers to puzzle on. :D

    I finally got around to taking photos of the things that my friend gave me. She started managing an apartment complex, and found one with a lot of Halloween things in it, although many things weren't really usable (bent up cardboard tombstones, a poorly made half coffin with rusty nails poking out of it, shredded garbage bag "curtains"). She gave me two Christmas candleabras that I can make-over, too. I'm going to have to rewire them with lamp kits though. Someone did a bad Dr. Frankenstein...

    The ad didn't say how much they are, unfortunately. I didn't see any at our store last week, but I am checking back Thursday and/or Friday to see if they just haven't been put out yet. Our store is small, and doesn't seem to get much of the stock that I see in ads.

    I even tried to combat this, by taking photos of everything that I buy. However, I tend to procrastinate with that sometimes, so I still find stuff that I forgot that I had! I even made a "hoard" photo album here to put the pictures in. I'm just lazy about uploading the ones that I do have.

    I have ideas, and maybe one part of an item. I don't know if I dare to make something this time, or just search around for something suitable to go with what I have. It's still one item, it just has two pieces. :D

    I decorate both indoors and outdoors. We don't have parties, but I do decorate the kitchen, the dining room (with fireplace and mantle), and the front foyer. Indoors is more of a witchy, vintage sort of theme. The "vintage" things don't have to be authentic vintage, they can be reproductions. I know that real vintage can be pricey. Cute is OK, but I like the "cute" style that vintage cards have, more than I do the more modern, happy, generic cartoon-style items. I do however, ...

    I rarely pay retail, either. I tend to buy a lot of things at Goodwill, for repurposing. I really don't buy much actual Halloween merchandise from regular stores, unless it's on clearance. Not that I don't buy anything...just not much. Michael was with me when we first saw the grandfather clock at Goodwill. He grumbled, but said that he didn't care if I bought it. I think he was trying not to smile, but he was trying to sound disinterested, haha. He does like Halloween, and I've gotten him...

    I actually agree, completely. I miss the classic Halloween style. I don't mind the cute costumes, or even cute decorations these days (because they are much better than the awful cute decorations of the 1990s, which looked like Ellen Clapsaddle reproductions. For those unfamiliar with her work, very cute painted models, like old Coca Cola ads). I dislike the extreme gore that has taken over. I don't understand it at all. Why do we need to scare with realistic things, when there are fantasy...

    I don't remember if I mentioned it the other day or not, but I bought a couple of ultraviolet "invisible ink" paint-style markers the other day. I saw a really cool Pinterest idea where they were used to scrawl eerie messages on walls, as if in an insane asylum, etc. http://smile.amazon.com/Nissens-30200-Nissen-Ultraviolet-Marker/dp/B00BFENCCI?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00

    Great, thank you! I didn't even realize that such a thing existed! I should have checked the battery out today, and forgot. I guess I really ought to bring it in from the garage (which unfortunately, isn't attached to the house, or I would do that right now...).

    The sign on it said that it didn't work. It's battery operated, with battery included, but I haven't tried a new battery, or cleaning the leads yet. If it really doesn't work, I will just have background sound effects for it, with 13 chimes. ;) I do plan on spiffing it up, it's too plain the way that it is. It's just lightweight particle board, nothing really special at all, but a good base to start with.

    Thanks! It needs to be spookified, but I think that it will do nicely. The sign on it said that it didn't work. It's battery operated, so it wasn't a very expensive clock to begin with. I haven't tried a new battery, or cleaning the leads if necessary. I can always just use a background soundtrack with ticking and chiming. :) 13 chimes, of course!

    One of the items that I'm waiting for arrived unexpectedly today! It was one that said it might not be here until the 28th. Hopefully the rest start piling up on my porch ASAP! I didn't realize that I was buying from the slow boat from China! ;)

    I found a little something for my reaper box (unexpectedly!), and a bigger something for me. The clock doesn't work, but I don't care. I really didn't want to pay $8 for it, but I never seem to catch it on half off day, and I knew someone would probably scoop it up before I could get there, anyway. I was going to build one from cardboard for the parlor display, but I will just embellish this one.

    I wish that I still had some of our original decorations that my mom bought when I was a kid in the 70s! The only Halloween thing that I have from my childhood, is a footless Jack o'lantern Pez dispenser that I somehow hung onto since then. That's what got me started collecting Pez dispensers, in fact! I do have one black cat die-cut decoration that was my mom's, but I think that it's from the 90's. I don't recognize it as being "vintage" from my childhood. (eep, I'm old!)

    I used to have several of those bats. I took a fishing rod, tied a length of line to it, and tied the line around the center of a dowel rod. Then I tied a flying bat to each end of the dowel, and the two of them circled, chasing each other. I stuck the fishing rod out of one of the upstairs windows, so that the bats were visible, but far enough above heads that they couldn't be reached. I probably got the idea from someone on Halloween-L back in the old days. I can't remember. They loved...

    Thank you! I bought a dozen of those DT shepherds hooks, and I'm really considering going back for more! I just think that they'd be really useful for staging things throughout the cemetery, even if it's not lighting. I like the idea of putting the JoL pails on them, too!

I suggest that we stack the bodies in the cellar, lock it, leave quietly one at a time and forget that any of this has ever happened.
