“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.”

Spooky finds and creepy creatures...

It's rolled around again!

How has your week been?
We are doing pretty good..
I have a whole bunch of cool things to show you.

Here's a little witch hat I made to go with the witch's dress.

my daughter bought me this coffee mug at world market,

And this garland too!

This cute banner was from Target

As were these throw pillows

These treat bags were fifty cents each!

We stopped at our local Spirit Halloween store and 
found this adorable bird feeder (on clearance) and these Ouija board coasters.

This is a 50x60 throw blanket,
we have it on the sofa.

Rigby, checking out the new cup and straw.

I have a few more goodies to show you, including the gigantic pumpkins we found at the grocery store. 
But I'll save them for next week.

Are you ready for another short story?
Grab a blanket and get comfy then....

remember my cousin's odd ordeals?
Well they didn't stop with the werewolf and creeping ghosties.
Early one Saturday morning when she was about 8 years old she was
watching cartoons while her mom did laundry.
My aunt told us this tale..she recalls my cousin being terrified at the time.
 My cousin said she was lying on the sofa when she saw her mother 
walk into the bathroom by the living room.
as soon as she closed the door, The backdoor opened and her mother walked in with
a load of laundry in her arms.
She said she felt frozen to the couch..she couldn't take her eyes off of the bathroom door.
She began to cry and begged my aunt to please check the bathroom.
Of course there was no one there....

What do you think these type of creatures are? doppelgänger?
 Or a child's over-active imagination?
 Have you ever seen anything like that?

I spoke to her recently and she told me she vividly remembers lying in bed at night and pretending to be 
asleep because there was a huge dark shadow with a long snout
 sniffing around her room at night.
She would pretend to be asleep so it wouldn't notice her.....


alright, I'm off ..it's the witching hour!!
May you have a magical week.
Happy Haunted Humpday!

(don't forget.....


  1. My goodness, you've acquired all of the Halloween decorations. That's it, I'm stopping by the Party Supply Store on my way back from the hospital--I'm jealous of your coasters. :-D

    That poor girl. I wonder if she had trouble going into that bathroom after the first incident... or falling sleep with the lights off after the second.

    Happiest Haunted Humpday! ♥

  2. Great finds and wonderful tribute to Stephen King last week. Happy Humpday!

  3. Oh I most def look forward to this time of year, I too got a lot of the Fab Ouija Inventory from Spirit Store, it goes fast. Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

  4. You have been shopping, My Friend!!! I love your Halloween treats: the pillows are my fave!

    I can't believe what all your cousin went through when she was younger living in that house. I can't imagine what she saw....so creepy! I love these stories, Marfi. So happy Haunted Humpday is back!

  5. I love all the goodies you found. I am going to have to drag Amanda to World Market so we can get one of those mugs! She loves skulls! <3

    That story is so creepy! I don't know much about dopplegangers and now it seems like I need to look up some info on them, lol.

  6. Wow, what a fantastic Halloween haul and another great scary story too! Rigby is adorable and looks so cute checking out the ouija cup. On the other hand, your poor cousin! How does she sleep at night? Thanks for a great time and Happy Humpday.

  7. What great finds, I was looking at World Markets site yesterday. I carry my money in a Ouija mint tin from there, and get crazy looks when I pull it out and open it. Iv'e still yet to decorate.
