What a miracle that I even got a chance to do any decorating at all this year. But I am starting to get a reputation in the neighborhood for trick and treating and I am afraid that if I didn’t decorate, I would probably get my house egged.
My wife wouldn’t allow too much decorating in the house this year because right now we have my 1 year old grandson living with us. I totally understood because it would be too easy for him to destroy my decorations and tear everything apart. My wife said “No, you dummy. It is because he could get hurt destroying your decorations.” Oh, yeah. That too.
I hope you are doing some fun things this year for the holiday. We are having our big family party on the 29th and I am excited for that. We are also trying something different this year. We found that there is an antique store that has collected weird, unusual, haunted and disturbing things over the years and have opened a museum of oddities and haunted objects in the upstairs of their store. I am excited to take the family and visit such a place. It says it isn’t scary, but as you go through it, it leaves you with an unsettled, disturbed feeling. Oh Yeah! That’s what I’m talking about.
The store here at ElsBeth Lair has done absolutely wonderful for us this year. Since August we never went a day without multiple orders. It kept me hopping upwards of 16-18 hours a day. This week it has started to slow down as most people are done with their Halloween decoration shopping.
The Horror Dolls are a whole different story. I found that Horror is a whole different genre than Halloween and as I have been creating the horror dolls you see in my store, I am finding that there are collectors out there for them. I now have a couple of collectors of my dolls and am having a hard time keeping up with making enough of them. Now that is what you call a great problem to have.
I just finished Battered Betsy today. I will share her with you here.I will also share a few pics of my yard this year. I wish I would have had time to do what I had planned on doing, but I guess that can wait until next year!
As always, I know that this will be a great Halloween. I hope it will be for you also.
I’m sure I will post again before the big day and I hope to get some good pics of that museum to share with you also.
Happy Halloween everyone!
