Fiendish Furniture and Horrific Home Decor.

When you ask a normal person what they would do if they won the lotto, they will answer, "Pay off debt, buy a new house, share it with family and friends". If you ask a Halloween nut like me, my answer is, "Pay off previous years of Halloween debt, buy a haunted house and stock it with ghastly furniture, invite family and friends over and share the wealth by creeping them out".  For those of you that have a similar mindset, here are some ideas for decorating your new dream nightmare home.

Enter my parlor said the spider to the fly.

It's not clean till it's skull brush clean!

What a perfect place to display your collection of decapitated heads.

This is not your grandmother's rocking chair. If it is, I salute you!

This is also how Batman keeps the Bat cave cool.

I have called this meeting to ask you, "Where can we find more creepy furniture"?

This is an actual table. I would love to have it.

What I would not give to have this in my garden.

Tim Burton?

RIP Ray Bradbury.

   Famous author, Ray Bradbury, has passed. While he was famous for a multitude of excellent works of literature and media, the one that stands out to me is "The Halloween Tree". Ray was able to inspire a nation of Halloween lovers and has been reciprocated with dedications to that great Halloween work for years. Ray's vision and understanding of us Autumn people has fueled my imagination for years. I even adopted the name of my blog from the movie, "Something Wicked This Way Comes". Thank you Ray for making my childhood all the brighter with your tall tales, glowing Jack-o-lanterns, and your inspiration in that one book I will never forget.
