I thought that it would be fun to share with you some of my Halloween decor along with a story that I think is appropriate for telling at this time of year. You decide if its true, maybe this has happened to you! So come along and have a visit if you dare!
If you find this a truly scary post then pin it to your Halloween board.
Around the first of October I start to put out some of my Halloween decor in between my Autumn vignettes. I’m still a kid at heart when it comes to livening the house up for each and every holiday. I enjoy the smiles on everyone’s faces as they enter my home. It’s that smile I like that makes them feel like a kid again, or the child that deserves their holidays to be magical.
If I could turn into a Halloween character for just one evening it would be All Hallows Eve as a witch. I have always been fascinated by them I think it is there magical gifts that fascinate me. They can fly on a broom stick up to the moon, with their cat sitting on the end of it. They have a wonderful cackle that rumbles clear down in the bottom of their stomach, and all the magic powers that you would have would be so fun. Now I don’t have very much evil inside of me so when Hansel and Gretel start gnawing on my house of candy I would snap a lollipop off a tree and tell them to go for it.
~Who would you be? ~
I think that it would be fun to be an Interior Designer for a witch, I could really make their house look amazing I wouldn’t even have to remove the cob webs!
I truly was in my element at the witches tea last week, and the sister witches are some of the greatest ladies that I have ever meet. Just got to love The Black Hat Society!
I would wait for those cute little trick or treaters with the greatest of treats and show them that not all witches are scary just because they may look like it. lol
After a moon light ride I would fix a pot of tea and relax by my fire and enjoy the beautiful smells in the air and the laughter of the children as they run here and there collecting their bag of treasures.
Now I know that we all love vintage decor and a good ghost story, sometimes with a certain piece there is a story behind it. Which makes that piece much more dear to us. Do you ever think about who might have owned this particular piece or how they felt about it? I believe that sometimes there are spirits that are still attached to a piece and have a tendency to want to hang around it, and not move on for one reason or the other. Well, now I am really putting myself out there, and yes I’m a little odd but we all are in our own way right? Say yes, I will feel better. lol Thank you.
I was born with the sight. You know the kind that you get to see people who have passed on. As I have gotten
old more mature my gift has gotten sharper. Now I don’t see this sort of thing all the time like in the movies, it seems to be for a reason when I do, and sometimes it will startle me because I am not expecting it.
I know that many of you who have followed my blog for a while remembers seeing this beautiful child’s size antique chest in my bedroom. This is a family heirloom and was made around 1875. About three years ago in a different home I was living in at the time I used the chest as a night stand right by my bed. One night I got in bed, read for a while then shut off the light and rolled over in bed to go to sleep. I hadn’t been a sleep more than 10 to 15 minutes when I heard some giggling and felt someone standing next to my bed. I rolled over and saw a small girl about the age of four or five looking at herself in the mirror giggling. I don’t min spirits hanging out but when they wake me I get a little perturbed. After she had a long good look in the mirror she turned around and skipped down the hall.
This happened two more nights in a row. Finally I was tired of her playing around during my precious sleep time so it was time to confront the little girl. Have you ever confronted a ghost before? What do you say? I said “go away and don’t come back”. (She was really starting to freak me out about the third night). Then I got up and turned on the hall light, and I have never seen her again. I sleep with a small light on in the hallway so I can get some sleep. Spirits don’t seem to come around when there is light. When a child says I need a light on I’m scared of the dark, they probably have their reasons. Small sweet children see much more than we adults do. I have heard some of my grands stories so believe them. Most spirits are not here to hurt or scare us they just want companionship and for some reason some of them do not know how to go home or don’t want to. So be kind to them if you happen to meet up with one when you bring home a new vintage or antique item one night. lol
Have a happy and safe Halloween! Enjoy!
