I'm going to give away my age by telling you I was born in 1973 (almost 1974), so I spent my time watching '70s PBS in the years before I went to kindergarten. This included the long-lived Sesame Street, Romper Room, and The Electric Company. A few years ago, I was reminded that Morgan Freeman was on TEC during that time. At first I didn't remember him, but when I pulled up a YouTube video, it all came rushing back. Even then, I had a great love of Halloween and the classic movie monsters (I was raised on horror movies and loved every second of them). So with great pleasure, I give you a couple of his skits, but there are a few more on YouTube.
I just discovered a site that has reproductions of Beistle Halloweenies. I absolutely love the look of retro Halloween decorations and have purchased a lot from Homegoods--my Halloween Mecca. While I'd love to have originals, they just aren't in my budget, so I was so excited to find Vintage Beistle. They have so many items at very affordable prices, and even some free downloads. I'll be making an order very soon. Oh, and I actually have a couple of the cutouts from my childhood in the late'70s, before I was even in school. (I've always taken great care of anything Halloween that I've gotten.) I have the cat sitting on the moon's nose and the jack-o'-lantern in the last picture. Here are a few of the goodies you'll find on their page.
I haven't posted in four years, but I hope to remedy my lack of attentiveness. First up, my "Morbid Bride" shoot from 2013. My vision was a bride who lost her love on their wedding day. Let me know what you think! Of course, I doubt anyone will see this, at least for quite some time, ha, ha.
