“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Haunted Humpday 2016

Welcome to the third annual

                                              can't believe it's going on three years already!

I talked about creating a witch's dress the other day and here it is:

Helena was going to post her paper dress tonight too, but she didn't finish it in time.
we'll do that next week.
by the time we're done, there should be a witch wardrobe all set and ready.

I haven't been very active on my blog but I have been busy creating art.

                                                     these will be listed in my shop soon.

There is a lot of Halloween displayed in stores, finally!
We bought the DVD again because ours was so old already.
the other stuff is just extra fun I like having around..
I don't even care for oreos anymore.

These are pretty creepy, they aren't real but I thought the idea was very cool.
I for sure wouldn't eat these, yuck.
I probably wouldn't even be able to handle them being in the house!! haha!

gather round....
I have two very short stories for you tonight..
When my cousin was about 3 she lived with her parents on a few acres of land in a rural part of town.
The neighborhood was desolate..maybe five occupied houses on that whole block.
It was quiet and lonely.
The lack of street lights made it so that when the sun went down it was completely scary.
There always seemed to be something odd about being there.
unexplained noises and a feeling of unease made visiting the house uncomfortable.
One night after everyone was asleep my aunt sat on the sofa to fold laundry and
watch a bit of TV before bed, out of the corner of her eye she saw my cousin
trying to sneak passed the sofa,
it was very late, so she asked
"where do you think you're going"?
When she turned to look directly at her, she was gone..
my aunt got up and went around the sofa to lead her back to bed, thinking she had
tried to hide by crouching down, but there was no one in the room with her.
after checking the bed room she found the child deep asleep in her bed.

This next event happened about a year later.
My uncle worked at an office furniture warehouse and sometimes
(much to my aunt's dismay) he would bring home old furniture and try to use it in their home.
He brought home a huge filing cabinet and put it in the bedroom to use as a dresser.
It was very difficult to open because it was at least five & a half feet tall and very wide..
being metal, it was extremely heavy.
One day, he was ready to leave for work but could not find his keys.
My aunt helped him search for about fifteen minutes, but they had absolutely no luck.
He couldn't understand where they could be, as he had placed them on the key hook by the door
like he always did.
My cousin, who was four at this time was just waking up and they asked her if she had any idea
where the keys could be.
She said she did,
then led them into their bedroom and pointed to the very top drawer in the humongous cabinet.
My aunt opened the drawer but did not see them, after moving several piles of neatly folded
shirts out of the way, they found the keys.
The drawer was too high and too heavy for my cousin to open, plus, like some filing cabinets
you had  to shift over a little lever to get the thing to slide open.
They were very confused and asked her how she knew they were in there.
She told them it was a werewolf. She saw him hide them in there last night before she fell asleep.

What do you think?

Well, that's all for now.
I hope you have a spooky week.
Next Haunted Humpday is VERY special.
It's Stephen King's Birthday and I hope you stop by to help us celebrate!!



  1. HI! What a fabulous dress for some lucky witch, I can't wait to see the whole wardrobe. You always have the scariest stories, I'm almost afraid to read them as they give me goosebumps! So sorry I missed out on all the fun of last year's Haunted Humpday but I did (finally) manage to get my post for today up! Thanks for dreaming up such a fantastic event! Cheers, Sarah

  2. Wow, the dress is super cute and I really like the art you've made. The story is fantastic and kind of creepy since I am soon to head to bed, lol.

  3. I posted yesterday about a little bit of Halloween stuff I purchased recently and didn't realize it was the first Haunted Humpday. Omg those Exorcist Oreos look like mocos, I wouldn't eat them either.As always great haunting tales. I just got a Stephen King book to read at random. Have a great rest of the week.

  4. Hello, Marfi! So happy you've been making some adorable art. My art studio has spider webs from lack of use! ;P
    VERY creepy story. How long did your aunt, uncle, and cousin live in that house? Does your cousin still remember the "werewolf?" Yikes! Loved the story! Happy Haunted Humpday! Sorry I got over here so late. I hope you have a great weekend!


  5. The tale about your aunt and your cousin is very creepy indeed. I bet your got in the habit of checking your cousin's bed a few extra times at night. So scary of a situation for a parent...

  6. P.S. I might not participate every Wednesday, but I will post every now and again. For now, I'm stealing the button. ♥

  7. I am glad you are back. You can count on me.


thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it:)
