|This page is gonna be under construction for some time. I renamed some files and then they disappeared so I'm
working on trying to find them or reconstruct them. They contained all the pictures since 2006, but you can view
quite few of these lost pictures in my albums in Picturetrail. Password: muffy7
|There are not many pictures here because we only decorated four
rooms in the house. Bad health year.
|This year (2012) we had over 1000 people through the house due to the full page
write up in the local newspaper "The Lexington Dispatch", sorry I did not get
too many photo's, we were so busy. As soon as I get a printer I will post the
newspaper page and I also have old Halloween pictures to post.
|The decorating frenzy is already in progress my fellow Halloween Haunters! I
started the last week of September getting some boxes up and things up around
the house. Here are the photo's getting ready for Halloween 2006. The will be
the first year people are invited into the house. WILL THEY LEAVE?
|The main thing for this season is the cemetery. This season will be the first phase
of the cemetery and most importantly getting the fence sections built and the
pillars and gate done. Additions to the cemetery will follow in 2008.
|The theme has been selected and a story is being developed. As the story comes
together plans are made for each scene and a list is made of what is needed,
what needs to be built and additional ideas of what we can add to the scene to
enhance the Trick r Treators excitement.
|The photo's from 2009 and 2010 were pretty much the same, it wasn't till 2011
that we started buying new things to add. So I'm gonna skip over a couple
years from 2009 to 2011.
|We were so saddened in 2012, we had finally collected enough props to move
the gypsy scene from a small corner in the garage to its own large pop up tent
outside. I started working on creating the scene and along came Hurricane
Sandy. She blew everything in the tent, including the tent into the next county!
|Most lost treasure was my beautiful crystal chandelier that I bought at the
Goodwill for $3.00. I kept telling Jerry, "Take it down", he said "Oh I got it
up there real good, it won't come down". It broke in over 100 pieces.
|We are gonna try and get up as much stuff as we can for the 2018 season.
There is so much new stuff that is still in the boxes it came in, to be honest
I'm not sure what I got and that is why we decided to go along with this
years theme of "The Collinwood Haunted Museum". That way I can leave
some of this western stuff up and not have to do so much taking down and
putting up. We'll just decorate right over it and with a museum theme I
don't have to clear rooms to stick to a theme.
|No matter what ....right after Christmas I am going to get Jerry & Joe to help
me work on these projects for the Walking Dead. I still have those 10 new
aquariums I bought for that scene. On top of that, there is clothing for about
30 stand up props, shoes, accessories you name it! The garage is overrun and
so is the basement.
|Never did I think that my display might be "Tribute to Rick Grimes", I can't
believe I may get it up after he dies!
|Halloween is starting to get like Christmas....to many boxes never get
