The Apprehensive Apparition

Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween So, today’s theme day in the 13 is all about ghosts and revolves around a great little movie from the late 80’s (when Steve Guttenberg and Daryl Hannah were definitely at their best). This movie has all of the elements of a good ghost story: drafty old Irish […]

The Witchy Way

Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween I always save my witch themed day in the 13 for the weekend. There’s nothing I like better than working on my costume while watching a season of the classic TV show “Bewitched”. So, some of what I did today, I’ve already featured in the post “Every Witch […]

Party Like you’re a Mini-Monster

Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween The Littlest Vampires are the Cutest Vampires When my youngest son was little, he loved watching The Little Vampire starring Jonathon Lipnicki.

There are so many different interpretations of this mythical creature that I could spend a month talking solely about vampire stuff. But I must say–the same rules I established in “Walk like you’re a Zombie“, apply here as well. However, with […]
