Halloween Haunt 2002

In honor of Halloween 2010, I decided to post some photos from our Halloween Party/Haunt 2002! I can't believe 8 years have passed, since sometimes it feels like yesterday!
My dear friend Marie and I had planned to do something in 2001 after Martha Stewart came out with her first Halloween magazine, but after 9/11 we just lost our oomph to do anything.
So we gathered many ideas over the next 8 months and got to work summer of 2002.
We had so much fun, but time makes things fuzzy and stressful times not as bad ! :o) We were crazy by the night of the party!
We carved many signs and headstones for our cemetery (photos later) out of foam insulation.

Marie's husband Steve, replaced our front door lights with these skulls that had red lights inside.

Our shrunken apple head tree
with ghostly books of every kind.

One of the sideboards covered with
an assortment of interesting and scary knick-knacks.

More hand painted books with an
electric-charged crystal ball sitting on top. (The kind that when you put your hands on it, the electric current follows your fingers.)

Another sideboard with crooked mirror.

The Phantom of the Opera was the first vignette of our Haunt.
We better not disturb him.

Oh, no, too late, he has seem us, so he is playing the same song over and over and over! Next stop the Mummy's tomb.
I'll post more photos over the next week. The photos were taken with a 3 1/2 inch disk camera...remember those? Some of the disks are unable to be opened, so hopefully I can get all the pictures online. Hope you all our planning frightful and delightful Halloween celebrations......enjoy!
