    Congrats on taking the plunge, Doug! Be warned...it's a slippery slope. Your first piece is a GREAT pick! I have it too although it didn't make it into my display last year because mine is very noisy and it drowns out everything else. I don't mean the dialogue, but the gears or the internal mechanism...something is loud on mine, but I'm not sure if it's just how this piece is or if mine is flawed. But anyway...my favorite part of it is the guillotine! When it comes down it really does...

    Thanks again SW! The gravel is a village accessory by Dept 56. You can get it in different colors: graystone, sandstone, brickstone. And all it took to do my whole village was one small bag. I was a little heavy handed putting it in the cemetery and didn't think I would have enough to do the carnival grounds but it actually looks better spread a bit more thin, I think. I could have stretched the one bag even further. Yes, the Fun House is Spooky Town too! I agree about the trees. When I...

    Thanks Hilda! It was really fun to plan and lay out, and the kids thought it was pretty cool. I think. I actually think they were a little overwhelmed. The adults seemed to like it too. The challenge this year will be to make it look cool...but different. To select and make different treats, and lay it out a bit differently. I hope I'm up to the challenge!

    Thank you, SW! That mansion is a Disney's Haunted Mansion light up house. I don't know much about it as I got it on eBay maybe 4 years ago. I'm not sure of the year or edition size or even if it was part of a collection of little light up houses. It's a great piece, the only trouble is that the scale is smaller than Lemax Spooky Town and definitely smaller than Dept 56 pieces. You can tell because the butler and maid figures I have in front of it are way too big to fit through the front...

    I smell another rip off. The description of the wreath with the horned woman and the feathers sounds exactly like this wreath found all over Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/420453315188882918/

    Instead of black, try dry brushing on shades of orange and yellow. That would probably look better on a white surface like this. You could also use a method called tea staining, as opposed to painting. Even heavily diluted wood stain could work for distressing. I'd also suggest using either real or fake moss in certain places to enhance the decay. This is beautiful, though. It'll really be over the top once it's aged properly. Amazing job!

    I ordered 2 sets of the bats with flashing eyes, and 1 of the rocking bat, to hopefully spook up my porch a bit better this year...but apparently they won't ship until the end of July. I wouldn't have ordered if I knew they weren't "In stock". Oh well.
