A Haunting We Will Go

Few things thrill me more than when it's that time of the year to go up to the attic, bring down the boxes of tacky Halloween decor, and start turning my humble abode into a haunted house. This year was especially thrilling because I performed the transformation while my 17 year old was at work. When he came home at 11:30 pm, he was greeted by this awesome monster in the living room and it gave him quite a scare. Even though he has seen this dude before, he was tired, it was dark, and he wasn't prepared for fright night.  This guy is actually a face changer, and when you walk by him, he says really creepy things, his head drops down, then back  up again with a different face and red eyes. He is my favorite in my tacky collection. I have quite a few items that go Boo and Bump in the night all over my house, but I won't bore you with the gory details. Rather, I'll just show you some of the highlights.

Here I am sharing a toast with the head of the table.
 
The rest of the table has a bit more refinement.
 
Now this dude was a new addition to the family last year, and I was disappointed to discover he had dry rot when I unpacked him from his resting place in the attic. Just look at the holes in his hood, and you can see straight through his clothes because when I picked him up they literally fell apart in my hands. I guess ya git what ya pay fer hey?
 
 How about my anatomically correct skeleton? That's every witch's dream!!!
 
Just wait til Christmas time folks 'cause you ain't seen nuthin' yet. The Queen of Tack just gets warmed up at Halloween. Christmas is really my time to shine!!!

  2. Dry rot or not, that Grim Reaper looks pretty terrifying. He also looks like he's mocking your boobs. What a jerk.

  4. You're a girl after my own heart. While I don't do much decorating, I love to scare the crap out of my kids on a regular basis. I wish I could have seen your 17 year old's reaction. And yes, what is the dry rot guy doing with/saying about your boobs?

  6. WOW, guess I'm the last to know. I never even noticed Mr. Dry Rot mocking my boobs. I should have flashed him and wiped that smirk off his face!!!

  12. I'm digging that the one dude had dry rot. Awesome.

    My next door neighbor is a Lowe's manager. Her yard gets on my nerves, though. It's too much. You can see the black lights and the inflatable cat from space. Plus it keeps my two year old meowing all the time and we have to go check on the big ass cat and tell it goodnight before bed. Annoying.

    I cant wait to see the Christmas pics!

    I bestowed another bloggy award thing to you. Feel free to ignore it. I know passing those things on can sometimes be a pain in th ass. But, you're awesome. You don't need me to give you a blogging award to know that.

    Happy Halloween. I'm going as a Kleenex and hubs as a booger. Epic.

  13. So did your son get scared? That was a mean thing to do. But I like it! hahaha.

  14. This is awesome... and so makes me want to revamp my Halloween decs! I only have one mildly scary thing (a skull that still kinda spooks me out, I try not to look at it) - otherwise it's all just pumpkins and friendly witches in my house! haha!

    My mom's neighbour has a scary man that stands on her front stoop this time of year. I always forget about him, and everytime I turn down her street and catch sight of him out of the corner of my eye, I gasp. EVERY time. lol!

  15. Haha this is great. I so want to decorate my house, I just never get around to it. I have such great ideas. And just so you know, you don't look old enough to have a 17 year old!

  16. It's a good thing that skull dude didn't have eyes because I think he was going for your boobs. He might make a good sex doll for a certain type of woman.

  17. Does your porch skeleton have a boner? I'm thinking yes. That's AWESOME! Yes, every witch's dream. I hope you don't catch some neighborhood perv taking advantage of that. But if you do, snap a picture!

  18. I'd love to have the opportunity to scare the pants off of one of my kids. Do you think there's anything out there to jump through the shower curtain mid-twenty minute shower? I could get into Halloween just for that.

  19. Love it! In my opinion, you can never have too many decorations.
