“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...almost october!

Can you believe it's the last Haunted Humpday of September?
Have you started decorating yet? 
We started two months ago!

 even our everyday decor is creepy..

 We made a couple of Halloween crafts today 
Witches brooms!!
all you need are dowels, sequins, glitter, assorted ribbons/yarns and hot glue.
put a dot of glue on the ends of your dowel, then wrap ribbon
all the way around it.
glue yarn to one end..
add sequins or glitter and you're all set.

This is Helena's broom


This is her broom on magic, haha

This is my broom.

My little broom really did fly too! right under the bed in the mouth of a 
dirty cat named Rigby.

 tonight's story concerns a person my family has known for a while..
This guy does things with out thinking them through.

One night he was out with friends and things got a bit
out of hand...everyone was argumentative and threats were 
being thrown around....
It got really heated and he ended up shooting a guy in the face.
He says he heard sirens almost immediately
and he ran out the back door..
he ran, he said, for what seemed like hours,
out into the middle of nowhere..
there weren't any people,  there was nothing but desert...  
he said he felt like he was being watched
but he assumed it was because of the horrible guilt he felt.
after running many many miles, he began to walk..the night claustrophobic in it's darkness. 
he was going through lot's of dried up grasses and it almost sounded like his footsteps had an echo.

He became very afraid..so he started running again,
the footfalls, very obviously were not an echo..
they were deliberate..so was the maniacal laughing  that followed ..
he would tire and slow down and whoever it was would slow down too..
He finally arrived at a ranch house and decided to see if he could hide there
a while
before heading to Mexico to 'get lost'.
The ranch had dozens of large dogs roaming around..
presumably to guard the place..
he said not one of them approached him..instead they seemed scared and 
began howling at him.
He went into the barn and saw a dog lying in a large box,
giving birth to puppies that seemed to have human faces.
He became so frightened that he ran back out to the desert 
and this time he would catch glimpses of someone running very rapidly through the
 trees and underbrush to the side of him...
He swears it was tall but furry, like an animal.
It also had bright glowing eyes.
 he was apprehended that night, but he says he almost felt relief
when he got into the police car...
to be away from whatever was chasing him was a great feeling.

thanks for stopping by...


  1. I love all your decorations! I'm just starting to decorate this week.

  2. Wow that is a creepy story. I decorated yesterday. I've still a few things to put out but I'll probably end up moving stuff around again. :-)
    Happy Haunted Humpday!

  3. Haven't started decorating quite yet and I am not sure that we will get too much of it out now that we might be moving in a couple of months... although if pull stuff out, it will give me an excuse to claim 'downsizing and organizing"- as if I would ever get rid of my Halloween things! LOL.

    Love all your decorations and the story!

  4. I'm bringing out all our pumpkins tomorrow, Marfi. I can't wait! :)

  5. Awesome Halloween house. I still have not made it to my storage (which is in the backyard). Hopefully soon though. Those witch brooms are cute, might have to craft some this weekend with the girls.


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